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.

THANK YOU

Mexican Students Demand Justice for Missing Normalistas of Ayotzinapa

Thousands of Mexican college and high school students gathered on Wednesday to demand justice for the 43 missing normalistas of Ayotzinapa. At more than 30 universities and high schools nationwide, students held rallies in a show of solidarity for those missing, with many reading the names and displaying the photos of the missing normalistas.

Several hundred met later at PGR (Attorney General) headquarters in downtown Mexico City where many expressed their sorrow and anger with performance pieces and loud chants directed at government officials. Some in attendance broke office windows.

While some in the international press have forgotten about this story, Mexican students haven’t. They’re standing up for their fellow student, but most of all, their brother Mexican!

Follow us on Twitter and Facebook for the latest on the students of Aytozinapa

9 Months On, Koch Fears Realized After Town Raised Minimum Wage To $15

Photo from 15 Now

Photo from 15 Now

In January, the town of Seatac, Washington, put in to effect a new $15 per hour Minimum Wage. No ramp ups, no tiered implementation. One day it was the state standard, the next, the highest minimum wage in the nation. The Koch Brothers sank a fortune to fight this measure, which fell on deaf ears as the town rejected their trickle-down theories and instead voted for the measure.…

Adding a very telling paragraph from the WordPress article:

Tom Douglas, who runs fifteen restaurants in the Seattle area, warned that a higher minimum wage law being considered by Seattle would force the shutdown of a quarter of his restaurants. Instead, after the results in Seatac, he is opening five new restaurants to meet demand. And this story is being repeated, over and over again, throughout the region.

Giving people more money to live on means they have more money to spend. And they will spend it, they have to if they want to keep living.

Josh Thomas talks about male suicide

I wonder how feminists will react to this

Probably ignore it then go back to making male tears mugs and gifs 

Actually this is a very common idea among feminists

It’s something feminists have been talking about for years it’s called toxic masculinity and it’s one of the common threads among the topic of ‘Patriarchy hurts men too’. If fact the first time I read about toxic masculinity was on a feminist blog.

If you actually read things feminists talk about instead of straw manning them you might know this but OH WELL

So if we move Rikus eyes just under Terra’s and Kairis eyebrows just under Aqua’s chin

image

Make sure Auqa’s head is just under Terra’s eyes and Ventus just at Terra’s shoulders

image

And factor in that Sora’s head [[under all his spikes]] lines up to mid way to Riku’s neck

image

Now we look at the fact Xion and Roxas are the same 

image

Which Roxas is also the same to Sora

image

image

And Namine who’s the same to Kairi

image

And now we look at Roxas as he comes up to Axel’s chest [[man boobs]] 

We have [an almost] accurate scale!

problem: all types of love being coded/read as romantic

also a problem: romantically-coded behaviors between girls/women being read as platonic
