America is about limiting power to ‘appropriate’ people. Appropriate here generally means wealthy, white and male. Definitely not poor in any case, and definitely white in every case. Registration sets up a convenient roadblock to voting - the process can be messed with in so many ways. If you are poor, you probably…
Except that Pence is worse. Pence is a man that is convinced that Jesus talks to him and tells him what to say. He also believes that - under certain conditions - a nuclear war will bring Jesus back and make everything wonderful. Consider that. Just think a moment on that.
I can confirm that these accounts are TOTALLY true: I went to see Black Panther on Thursday night and as soon as I entered the theater, someone had the GALL to look me in the FACE and tell me “YOU DON’T BELONG HERE.” Then they POINTED to the EXIT and said, “BLACK PANTHER IS ACTUALLY IN THE OTHER THEATER, THIS ONE IS…
Well, damn. I was hoping the title would read “Ajit Pai - found dead under a bridge”.
Sorry, this is America, a wretched, failing empire. Healthcare, here, is a privilage not a right, so... mental health care is only for the wealthy. Gun ownership is the basis of True ‘Merican Culture, and no amount of sanity will ever change that.
It’s easy to understand her backflip - she wanted to be remembered for something, anything. She wanted to have a record that would stand forever. She wanted to say the biggest, loudest ‘fuck you’ to the sport, the world, her ‘unlucky’ career, and her own disappointments. And she did! She did it all with style and…
Toxic shock isn’t caused by the tampon, it is caused by blood and bacteria being trapped together in a warm place. Gluing a vagina shut is a perfect toxic shock incubator - far more blood and bacteria would be trapped by far, if this notion worked at all.
I... can believe that it was marijuana - if it was potent enough, and if Banks had a predisposition for a schizoaffective disorder. One of my spouses did some overly potent hash and ended up unable to reason, know her own name, comprehend space or time, and for long periods talk, swallow, or remember how her hands…
I have scientist friends. Specifically in solar spectroscopy and biopharmaceutical research - and you, sir, are no scientist. You are lying.
Virginia has long been A Place For Haters, not to mention a backward, authoritarian hive of narrow pieces of degenerate human detritus, so how can it be surprizing that they would fail to support equality even in terms of access to the internet? Equality is not Virginia’s thing. Bless their heart.
You cannot control a bigoted assholes feelings, but you can make DAMN sure that their problems do not become your problems, or the problems of other decent people. You can make it socially unacceptable to be a bigoted asshole. You can make it CLEAR that being a bigoted asshole is wrong. Because it is wrong.
Because nobody wants a bigoted asshole to bother their friend/lover/spouse/parent/child and especially they don’t want a bigoted asshole with power to enforce their bigoted assholery on the world overall. That is why. Now you know.
I’ve said this before, but Pence is so deep in the closet he’s having lunch with Aslan right now.
Damn, the asshole survived his bastardry. Pity.
All civilized technological nations have socialized medical care as a fundamental and basic human right. This is all that needs to be said on the matter.
Well fuckity-cockshit, this is godfucking christsucking fine felching news right here.
Two words: White Walkers.
We, as a People, are sick. Far more sick than this man’s ailing body.
