The term percent for art refers to a program, often a city ordinance, where a fee, usually some percentage of the project cost, is placed on large scale development projects in order to fund and install public art. The details of such programs vary from area to area. Percent for art programs are used to fund public art where private or specialized funding of public art is unavailable. Similar programs, such as “art in public places”, attempt to achieve similar goals by requiring that public art be part of a project, yet they often allow developers to pay in-lieu fees to a public art fund as an alternative.
From 1934 to 1943, the Section of Painting and Sculpture in the United States Department of the Treasury followed a policy requiring one percent of the cost of federal buildings to be applied toward art and decoration. In 1959, Philadelphia adopted the first such municipal ordinance in the United States. Other jurisdictions followed suit, including Baltimore in 1964, San Francisco and Hawaii in 1967, and Seattle in 1973.
More than half of the states now maintain percent-for-art programs. On the federal level, since 1963 the General Services Administration has maintained the Art in Architecture Program, which allocates one-half of one percent of construction cost for art projects.
Problem now is that funding is very limited, and many states and cities neglect the need for maintaining this ordinance! Not much has changed since the 70’s, except the loss of funds.

Planned Parenthood enjoys a good reputation. Many Americans think it performs necessary services — screening for sexually transmitted diseases, forestalling teen pregnancy and controlling family size.
But there are some disturbing realities behind the scene. For example, Planned Parenthood’s confidentiality principles (it promises not to tell anyone of a teenager’s problems) conflict with laws in every state that require health care workers to report suspected sexual abuse or statutory rape to law enforcers. Not surprisingly, investigators are finding a national pattern of failure to report sex crimes against underage teens.
In 2002 Life Dynamics, a pro-life group based in Texas, called 800 abortion clinics around the country, many of them run by Planned Parenthood. The caller would say she was a 13-year-old girl whose boyfriend was 22, and she needed an abortion. Ninety-one percent of the clinics told the caller they would give her an abortion, but warned her not to reveal her boyfriend’s age.
Americans may be surprised to learn that Planned Parenthood has plenty of money, and taxpayers are contributing a large part of it. In 2005-06 it took in nearly $1 billion and boasted a surplus of $55 million. More than one-third of its income — $305 million — came from government subsidies. Its president receives an annual compensation of almost $1 million.
In a time when abortions nationwide are declining, Planned Parenthood is performing more abortions than ever — 264,943 in 2005-06. These abortions bring in at least a third of its $345 million in clinic income.
Because Planned Parenthood is America’s biggest chain of abortion clinics, it is unsettling to learn that of the six American women who have died after taking the abortion pill RU-486, four got the pill from a Planned Parenthood clinic. Yet Planned Parenthood refuses to comply with FDA guidelines, permitting women to take the drug at home rather than at a clinic as the FDA advises.
There are also disturbing racial disparities. National numbers from the Alan Guttmacher Institute and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reveal that the overwhelming majority of abortion clinics are located in metropolitan areas, and some analysts have placed the percentage in minority neighborhoods at greater than 75 percent. Data from the CDC show that while white women get the majority of abortions (56 percent), black women, at only 13 percent of the population, are getting roughly 36 percent of the abortions. On average, 432,000 black babies are aborted annually.
According to sociologist Anne Hendershott, black women are more likely than whites to get late-term abortions, which are riskier. Perhaps abortion is more common in minority communities because, similar to alcohol and tobacco, it is more aggressively marketed there.
It is well known that Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, aligned herself with the eugenicists concerned with eliminating undesirables from the population. Moreover, Sanger received and accepted an invitation to address a Ku Klux Klan chapter and gave a speech that led to additional Klan invitations. Although we do not know what she said, we do know that recently questions have been raised about racism at Planned Parenthood clinics.
Documented in a widely-circulated recording and transcript, a UCLA student researcher for a pro-life magazine hired a professional actor in February 2008 to call Planned Parenthood clinics around the country, offering donations to “lower the number of black people” by targeting black babies for abortion. She found Planned Parenthood clinics in seven states that agreed to take the monies. Not one Planned Parenthood employee objected to the caller’s racist remarks or purposes.
Many taxpayers may not be comfortable with the ways that Planned Parenthood has been active in the political arena. Partial-birth abortion strikes many as a particularly hideous way to kill a baby, yet Planned Parenthood lobbied againsta ban on that practice. The Born Alive Infants Protection Act would have defined a viable fetus surviving the abortion process as a person entitled to medical assistance. Nurses have testified that babies who survive a botched abortion are sometimes of the same size and condition of those successfully treated in neonatal units across the country. Typically, they are left to die. Nurses have reported that some manage to survive for hours. Planned Parenthood lobbied against this bill as well.
One must wonder, then, whether taxpayers should continue to support an organization that is flush with money, has beenwilling to skirt or ignore laws intended to protect the people it claims to serve and may be targeting minorities with a practice many Americans believe immoral.

Where to begin? Oh, how bout here.. This school is a fake black ops CIA facility, where they hire delinquents who get off to beating up children. This is not a joke. It’s a real torture program, hidden right in plain sight of a suburb in Ferndale Michigan. If you get close enough; you can hear kids scream, and if u go inside, you might have a few chairs thrown at you… Not bc they’re bad kids, but bc they are being ABUSED!!! Sometimes sexually too! Does anyone care? No! You libtards are too busy worried about protecting illegals, than to pay attention to your own kids, who are being drugged and kidnapped on a daily bases.

I do. They said God is stupid, just wear a rubber. Fuck monogamy, you’re only a monkey. Then they said ‘go; I send you out to sodomize the planet, otherwise you’re missing out, and you’re weird af’…
Oh, and ‘your dick, and pussies will stop working if you don’t touch yourself constantly.’ – Jane Fonda
The irony is that no one uses condoms anymore… I don’t even know why they sell them? You could give them away for free, and they won’t get used… Bc when you sleep around enough, condoms don’t feel the same anymore. Likewise; it’s hard to be with one person, when you’re used to 3 ways, and the core of climaxing is objectifying the person’s body/ bodies you’re with.
Think the Catholic Church may have had a valid point regarding sex being only for reproduction. *(sarcasm) 😂🤔
Think about it, beauty is only beautiful bc someone else told you to think that way. If we all agreed collectively that pine trees were the new ass, you’d all be dendrophiliacs rn, thinking it’s natural to fuck the rain forest. No one would cut down trees anymore, bc everyone would be in the woods fucking them instead. Certain industries would be affected by this; bc after all, whether it’s the Catholic Church pushing ponzi schemes to not spill the seed, or the Zionist media telling you rape is okay as long as you film it, it’s always about the money; and the control.
The conclusion, is that you should examine why someone is selling you an idea. What are the motives behind why this person/ Organization/ Company/ Government, is so passionate about what they believe should be forced upon your life?
So.. My internet friend, who is a human rights activist, & innovative entrepreneur, was the one who told me about Depp’s Shenanigans’. At first I was like “yea; that makes sense, typical Hollywood sociopath,” no doubt in my mind right? Well, then I saw Amber’s Twitter, and was like “Oh Hell No.” On the surface, she is everything I’m against morally, and I believe the way she acts sets a negative tone/ bad example for young women in many ways. I miss the Cardie B version of feminism; it was simple, “like I fuck who I want, and make my own money.” I respect that, but this Amber Heard type of man hating mentality is so conflicting to the way many of us have already been engineered. Not saying it’s wrong, I’m just saying that it’s only throwing more fuel on the fire. People already have so many problems staying together, maintaining healthy relationships, young people don’t need to have this type of redneck behavior propagating in their face all the time. Both of them should be fired from Disney, and Depp should be, and will be in his vampirial coffin soon. This reminds me of how embarrassed I was when my parents fought in the front yard. Like if you’re gonna fight; keep it private, however, seeing Depp’s troll squad in action, made me realize that I am Amber Heard. She is a very strong human being, a victim who is doing everything in her power, and resources to defend her life. These Trolls are so sneaky, like I said, I have never witnessed this type of manipulation and gaslighting on a single celebrity before… Despite my own experiences, and fears of having my exes come at me for things that were out of my control.. I support Amber Heard, and I really believe she needs our help!
