A moment of silence for all the girls who have their period on their wedding day
I NEVER THOUHHT OF THAT
Why would you schedule your wedding when you have your period though?
The most effective way to destroy people is to deny and obliterate their own understanding of their history.
George Orwell (via moralanarchism)
Like by creating a myth that Ronald Reagan ended Communism. Like that.
“Republican budget boy Paul Ryan just keeps trying to pretend that Ayn Rand is not one of the most important influences on his economic views. Ryan recently came up with a list of his six favorite books about economics and democracy, and, Jonathan Chait points out:
More interesting—and revealing of the direction Ryan is headed—are the final two books Ryan does name: The Way the World Works by Jude Wanniski and Wealth and Poverty by George Gilder. I have read both. Wealth and Poverty is a weird, rambly, mostly unoriginal recitation of free-market homilies whose influence largely derives from the fact that it came out just as Ronald Reagan swept to power and was thus seen as an intellectual manifesto for the new Republican Party. The Way the World Works is a novel argument that the entire history of the world can be explained by changes of tax rates. The fall of the Roman Empire, the rise of the Nazis — Wanniski attempts to explain it all as a result of taxes. It is a work of genuine derangement on the same intellectual level as the sorts of unpublishable hand-scrawled diatribes that I used to scan through when I sorted the mail as a magazine intern.”
When do we get to say that the conservative mind is in free fall?
really sick of seeing so much hate directed towards the police on here. look, we get it, you prefer sting’s solo work, i like it too alright? that doesnt mean ‘every little thing she does is magic’ and ‘can’t stand losing you’ arent awesome jams. ‘roxanne’ and ‘don’t stand so close to me’ are classic, don’t even get me started on ‘spirits in the material world’. just stop ok?
The old adage. [Sorry if repost]
John Boehner, the highest ranking Republican, is from a gerrymandered safe district in Ohio.
Gerrymandering is the core of the GOP strategy.
"Both sides do it" is the weakest comment you can make while we are in a present-time gerrymandered House.
"Both sides do it" is Republican mayonnaise: it has no substance, holds their arguments together and smears the other side.
