A few people are a little disappointed with the election results…
Quick, someone restore my faith in the human race.
OH MY GOD NEW FAVORITE PICTURE
Now that Obama gets to stay in office, let’s work on a few things:
- Climate change
- The War on Drugs
- Food security
- Citizen’s United
- Patriot Act and NDAA-2012
- Breanna Manning (who most people unfortunately know as Bradley, but gender identity disorder, y’all)
Voting on November 6 is totally grool. We’re endorsing Barack Obama. Pass it on.
Nothing says get out and vote like trivializing the politics!
(Seriously though, I love ‘Mean Girls’ and vote for Obama)
this is what hell looks like
Hi Tumblr, it’s me, a slightly older person…
I see a lot of you 20 somethings saying things about how you aren’t going to choose the lesser of two evils and that their policy on important matters are identical so what’s the point they’re both stooges for Wall Street and the Industrial War Complex.
You are right. Kind of.
I know y’all LOVE the 90’s. Me too. And I remember after after eight years of Clinton/Gore, I thought those motherfuckers were the devil. I was soooooooooooo upset with Bill Clinton waving his deregulation wand and his fucked foreign policy that I was all FUCK THE DEMOCRATS and I strongly advocated for Raplh Nader, even though he too didn’t really care about my “gonad politics.” Even when not choosing between the “lesser of two evils,” I was STILL having to compromise major issues.
Having been an adult person through 8 years of Clinton/Gore and 8 years through Bush/Cheney, I can tell you without a shred of hesitation that I will line up like my ass is on fire to vote for the lesser of two evils because the greater of two evils almost had us all living outside and eating dog food.
And if you think that a Romney presidency won’t be worse than Bush/Cheney, you are out of your mind.
I am fucking begging all of you, please, go vote. Aside from the fact that far more dangerous things are happening on your local level, (like collective bargaining being taken away in Illinois) this shit does matter.
If you think voting for Obama is the lesser of two evils, you’re wrong, it’s the lesser of three because not voting IS voting for Romney. Not voting is voting for dickbag judges that sentence people to jail in counties that have privatized prisons for minor drug infractions. Not voting is voting to remove pensions and collective bargaining and the last shreds of union power from the people. Not voting this election is voting for Feudalism.
Now pardon me, there’s some damn kids on my lawn and they want candy.
Also - your local elections are super important. If you haven’t decided who you’re voting for on the local level I recommend votersfriend.com as a starting place. Google the candidates.
THIS IS WHY I AM HAVING LOCAL CANDIDATES ON MY SHOW. ALL POLITICS ARE LOCAL SO GOTMFV!
I am writing you this letter to let you know, in case that you didn’t, that slut-shaming makes you a fucking monster, and doing it to the point of someone’s suicide only to verbally erase its importance makes you lower than dogshit.
Yes, I’m that fucking angry.
Yes. Yes. Thank you.
I’m trying to figure out how to get in the woman binder…
Real women don’t attempt to “fit in” anywhere, they just … are.
Wait… what? I was talking about Mitt Romney’s “binder full of women” and the physical impossibility of fitting into a binder. “Real Women” my arse, by the way…
A lot of us can’t possibly imagine a life of being blind. We would dread it. After all, most of the information we gather about our surroundings, at least consciously, is done with our visual senses - we look at, we observe, we may even stare. It never occurs to us that we do not see the whole picture, because we are seeing with all our might. But we are never seeing the whole picture, after all. Imagine what life would be like if, at every moment, we were perfectly aware of that fact.
“The truth resists simplicity,” bestselling young adult novelist John Green once said. It’s an idea he has embraced, even subtly, in all of his novels and YouTube vlogs. When he writes in Paper Towns, “imagine me complexly”, he is not just giving a pointlessly nice-looking statement - he’s giving a rule of thumb.
I have started watching CNN recently. It has not made my hope for the world any larger.
A few days ago, a Pakistani girl was shot in the head by the Taliban for saying out loud that girls have a right to be educated.
Back at home, the Minister of National Security is trying to step on the duty…
It’s about time we stand up.
The Huffington Post has obtained the transcript of a 2000 phone call made by pro-life Congressman Scott DesJarlais of Tennessee, in which he pressured his former mistress to have an abortion.
In the call DesJarlais asks his lover to terminate a pregnancy.
“You told me you’d have an abortion, and now we’re getting too far along without one,” he tells the woman who he met when she was a patient of his.
They also discuss whether he will accompany her to the clinic for the aforementioned procedure.
“You told me you would have time to go with me and everything,” she says.
“I said, if I could, I would, didn’t I? And I will try,” he replies. “If I can [find] time, you’re saying you still will?”
Let me guess: he was a special exception because his abortion was the only moral abortion?
Oooh, let’s see how he’s voted on abortion issues in the past!
Yes on the Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act
Yes on barring Obamacare from covering abortions
Yes on prohibiting federal funding for abortion
Yes on defunding Planned Parenthood
What a sack of shit. And yes, she was his patient. Unbelievable.
You disgusting motherfucker. Words fail me…
But it’s okay, y’all! It was taken out of context! Seriously:
Freshman Rep. Roger Rivard (R-Rice Lake) in December discussed a case with the Chetek Alert newspaper in which a 17-year-old high school senior was charged with sexual assault for having sex with an underage girl in the school’s band room.
The newspaper quoted him as saying his father warned him, “Some girls rape easy” - meaning that after the fact they can change what they say about whether sex was consensual. On Wednesday, Rivard told the Journal Sentinel that the article did not provide full context of his comments and that his father’s exact words had been slightly different from how they appeared in the Chetek Alert.
He told the Journal Sentinel that his father had advised him not to have premarital sex, and he took that seriously. “He also told me one thing, ‘If you do (have premarital sex), just remember, consensual sex can turn into rape in an awful hurry,’ ” Rivard said. “Because all of a sudden a young lady gets pregnant and the parents are madder than a wet hen and she’s not going to say, ‘Oh, yeah, I was part of the program.’ All that she has to say or the parents have to say is it was rape because she’s underage. And he just said, ‘Remember, Roger, if you go down that road, some girls,’ he said, ‘they rape so easy.’
Roger Rivard, meet Todd Akin. Todd, meet Roger.
You both can take your victim blaming and go straight to hell. Context doesn’t matter here. In fact, the context in this case makes it even worse. I just don’t even know what to say here…
