I love my First Lady

Can you please tell her to tell her husband to stop killing muslims? Thanks

literally all she does is try to make the country “healthy” by giving students shitty school lunches like please do something else and help your husband fix the economy! *goes awf*

Imma need y’all to learn how the United States Government works. You don’t have to like her or the president but learn that they do not makes the decisions, they really do not have very much power, the president does not have the power to just snap his fingers and make shit happen or change things. You have to have 2/3 vote from congress to take a shit, let alone do anything having to do with government. The entire government was set up to make sure that exact thing could never happen, that is why there are 3 branches and that little thing called checks and balances.

In fact let me just break this down for y’all right here. 

  • President has 2 OFFICIAL jobs, Commander and Chief of the Armed Forces, but he only controls a limited amount of the funding for those troops (enough for 90 to 120 days) to engage these troops in combat. He CANNOT just declare war. only congress can declare war. The second, Accountant over the Federal Budget. 
  • He also is responsible for creating and balancing the national budget, but everything has to be approved by congress with a 2/3 vote. 
  • He signs bills into law, can veto them as well, however congress can override his veto. 
  • He assigns judges to the Supreme court, with the senates approval. 
  • He assigns foreign ambassadors, with the senates approval. 
  • he creates his own cabinet for people to research into areas that he might not have the time to, these are the only people who do not have to get approval from senate
  • congress is made up of 535 people (100 senators 435 HoR) for any of them to come to 1 agreement has only happened once in the history of this country, and that was to go into WWII, and even that the house voted 434 to one (1st woman house of Representative she was from Maine too, she voted against WW1 and 2)  and the judicial branch can call anything unconstitutional and kill it as well. 

and if you think i’m lying you can literally google this shit in 2 seconds. 

That tea is delicious

SAY THAT SHIT AGAIN! 

I would love for people to remember this when they want to start blaming the president. Any president, though not all of them have had good ideas.

lemme get in here a sec.

The President needs a 2/3 vote in Congress to get practically anything done, right? Well currently, the 133th US Congress is split with 53 Democratic senators and 45 Republican senators and 201 Democratic representatives and 234 Republican representatives. That makes a pretty even split between the two major political parties. Ever since President Obama was elected into office, the Republicans have voted down every piece of legislation he’s attempted to pass, in an effort to pin him as the worst president in American history, so that they can go back to their white-washed elitist lives and keep all their hoarded money from the people. The President has been doing everything he can to change things, but he cannot do that without the approval of Congress. Remember that week-long shutdown we had? Yeah, that was because the Republicans weren’t getting exactly their way with the budget, so they decided to shut down the whole goddamn government until they got their way. The United States Government relies on compromise and agreement between the two parties, and we’re seriously lacking right now in that department.

So if you want to blame someone for our country’s issues, blame the goddamn Republicans for acting like tantrum-throwing two year olds.

I scrolled past this, but came back because there is something else that needed to be added to this.

Let’s bring this back to the first lady, shall we? The first lady is not an elected official. She has no official power. She is not allowed to make policy. The last first lady who tried to make policy was Hillary Clinton and her cause was universal health care. She was one of the most widely hated first ladies and a systematic demonization of her nearly killed any political career she might of had, all because she was viewed as ‘overstepping her bounds’.

There is a reason first ladies choose completely unrelated and uncontroversial things to champion; because they don’t want to be a distraction and a tool used by the opposing side in a never ending game of political pissing contests. So no, she can’t just go ‘help her husband fix the economy’, because she wasn’t fucking elected to do that. She was brought in to pick the china and drapes. Fucking sexist, but that’s the truth.

If you’re going to try to score quick and easy social justice warrior tumblr brownie points, know what the fuck you’re talking about, please.

  • The US Government: We're not going to make it federally mandatory for people to get paid a wage they can actually live off of
  • The US Government: If people want to make a living, they'll just have to work 16+ hours a day
  • The US Government: And if their kids end up disenfranchised because of a lack of parental involvement, well that's not our problem
  • The US Government: In fact, what is our problem is creating a system that will funnel these disenfranchised youth into our prison system so they can work for corporations (that promise us money) for damn near free
  • The US Government: If they don't want to fall victim to this system, then they can seek higher education
  • The US Government: Except such an education will be inaccessible to most disenfranchised people and skewed in favor of the financially stable and white people
  • The US Government: And we're not going to make intervention programs like sex education and conflict resolution federally mandatory, because that's the parent's job
  • The US Government: The parent who is working 16 hours a day

I like the coach, putting his hands on his knees like, “Welp, that wasn’t it.”

i was almost like “oh man that sucks” and then her leg popped and i fucking lost it

That leg is killing me

THE LEG KILLED ME

i reblogged this a million times and i still dont know what it’s funnier: the leg or the coach

the fact that the coach is her father makes this funnier


Poor Nadia. Everybody says she’s so cold, but her humor is just so sarcastic. It’s great.

Okay here’s the dealio. Last Sunday I went for my 2nd day to NYCC in my Hawkeye cosplay. After being stopped by someone in a Hawkeye t-shirt asking “do you know where Matt Fraction’s booth is?” I honestly had no idea he was there because I hadn’t seen him on the website. So obviously I tracked down his booth and waited in line. While doing so my friend and I practiced the sign language we tried to learn the previous night for my cosplay. By chance we met two lovely people behind us a Cap and a Widow. The Captain America told us how he was hard of hearing and that’s why he loved Matt Fraction for writing the first deaf superhero. He so kindly helped me with my sign language and helped me not pass out from hyperventilating. Finally I got to meet possibly the best comic book writer ever. I’m not actually hard of hearing so my signing is terrible and I’m shaking because I was so nervous doing this in front of my personal hero. Anyways I started off signing “Hi my name is Clint” and then “Can I pet your dog?” TBH Matt looked a little confused. Then I asked him “Can you sign my shoes?” That’s when I showed him my converse that I designed after Matt’s work. I think I overwhelmed him a little bit with my intense fangirling but we hugged and I kind of didn’t want to let go because he’s amazing. Then he started signing everything he knew to me and I was sort of crying and laughing. He kept saying “thank you” and I was like “no thank you!” in other words this man is perfect and I am so happy I got to meet my real life hero. 

oh, dude, you, you, you. 

This was one of the greatest things that’s ever happened to me at a con. I met at least a dozen deaf or HoH folks this weekend and they were all so amazing and kind and receptive to the work — but something about this, about you, really got to me. 

thank you so much for coming by. you made my show.

(and i wasn’t confused! i was rusty and out of practice and struggling to remember how to sign, literally, anything. hence my free-associative explosion of toddler signs there at the end)

thank you, thank you, thank you. and you looked amazing. and you signed for me. you are MY personal hero. 

SO THERE

Matt Fraction is a darling human being. <3

I don’t go here, but this is really adorable!

Well… I finally decided to stop asking why there wasn’t a video compiling every Nick Foligno Sergei Bobrovsky hug in existence and just made one myself. So here is footage of every Nick and Bob hug I could find on the internet, set to some catchy tunez~ 

An alternate Vimeo link if the youtube version doesn’t work for you is here: http://vimeo.com/107416745

Who wouldn’t want to work at Google? The whole HQ looks like an amusement park with FREE food 24/7 & if an employee of Google dies, their spouse will receive half their pay for 10 years as well as stock benefits, and any children will receive $1000 a month till they turn 19. Source

let me tell you a story about the google headquarters

so my uncle works for google and I went down to visit him once and he took my family on a tour of the google headquarters just for fun. there was tons of cool stuff and art and a random jungle themed room and the most crazy ass 360 degree google earth screen thing you ever saw

but you’d kind of expect all that right

but then I started to notice something kind of weird

there was a weird amount of rubber ducks? like. a WEIRD amount of rubber ducks. like typical yellow ones and camo ones and huge pink ones with bows and tiny donalds and pirates of the carribean themed ducks and bejeweled ducks with no explanation on nearly every surface

so i asked my uncle why there were so many ducks and this is what he said:

"google has a suggestion box for employees to use, and one time this guy got hired at google who had previously worked for another company. the other company also had a suggestion box but they never actually listened to any of the suggestions, so the new employee assumed that google would be the same way. so as a joke, he put a suggestion in the box at he google hq that said something along the lines of "great office but needs more rubber ducks." a week later, 5000 rubber ducks arrived in the mail"

google read this guy’s bullshit suggestion about ducks

and actually listened to it

AND ORDERED 5000 RUBBER DUCKS

this company is a goddamn amusement park

i can’t

So proud of my mother for doing her own research after I sent her that meme. A sign she hung in her car window.

Stay woke

Is this true?

Not only is it true, it gets worse. The Susan G Komen For The Cure Foundation has actually successfully sued “competing” charities, because (paraphrasing) their “message or branding was infringing.”
You read that correctly: they took money that people had donated to cure cancer, and hired attorneys with it, to sue ANOTHER group of people trying to find a cure for cancer, who, in turn, had to us their donated money to hire their own legal counsel to defend themselves.



Yeah signal boost because not enough people know about this and seriously FUCK SUSAN G. KOMEN THEY ARE THE ACTUAL WORST
