But you wanna know something? Don’t you dare fucking tell me to be calm about this D.U.I shit.

Not only was Bieber’s BAC under even Florida’s “Zero Tolerance” limit for minors (.02 BAC, http://www.dmvflorida.org/florida-dui.shtml), the GPS data for his car would seem to show that he was not speeding ( http://www.talkleft.com/story/2014/2/1/162714/4956/crimenews/Justin-Bieber-Allowed-Into-U-S-After-ICE-Search-Turns-Up-Empty ).

So, by all means, be upset about DUI, but maybe make sure the person was DUI beforehand.

For Ten.

For Eleven.

Classic Who Poll

Inasmuch as I have a Doctor, it’s Nine.

Why not Nine?  What’s wrong with this jumper?

Now, on top of all that, society has the gall to ask teachers to take out loans to supply their own classrooms?


Might I suggest you’ve confused cause and effect?  This marketing campaign doesn’t exist because the system is trying to coerce teachers to go into debt to supply their own classrooms; it exists because teachers are already going into personal debt to supply their own classrooms and the system is trying to more efficiently capture that revenue stream.  The AristocratsCapitalism!

this is my ship okay don’t you tell me what to do

It tickles me that a character who literally can’t die is in love with Death herself.

Well, Thanos keeps trying to make himself a god, as or more powerful than Death herself, and has spurned her in the past when he thought he could usurp her.  Even when he was trying to impress her, he spent thousands of years trying to kill everyone in the universe but himself.  He even went off and had a kid with some Inhuman woman, and that’s gotta burn.

Deadpool, as mad as he is, on some level at least just really wants death for himself.  After a few eons with a moody, showboating, ultimately selfish suitor, how does that kind of earnestness not just melt a girl’s bony dark void of a heart?

"They don’t do shit and they haven’t gone extinct."

I hate to ruin the party, but I think you forgot the genus Megatherium.

The Republican Party is bending its entire will, staking its very soul, fighting to its last breath, in service of a crusade to make sure that the working poor don’t have access to affordable health care. I just thought I’d mention that in plain language, since it seems to get lost in the fog fairly often. But that’s it. That’s what’s happening. They have been driven mad by the thought that rich people will see their taxes go up slightly in order to help non-rich people get decent access to medical care.

Kevin Drum (via motherjones)

Man, I love Kevin Drum, but: so what?  For the last forty years, the explicit platform, the guiding philosophy, of the Republican Party (I won’t say “Republicans” because that might seem to include the voters, who are still motivated by patriotism) has been to subvert or eliminate the powers of government.  Look at what they say, what they write.  This is a party which preaches not just that “government which governs best, governs least,” but which is willing to seize the reins of power and drive the nation into the ditch just to prove that point.

There are parts of government which are efficient or which do much good, and you can argue about what the thresholds are for “efficient” or “good,” but if you did the research and painstakingly built a list of any program that might even possibly qualify for either of those adjectives you’d slap yourself when you realized it’s the exact same as the list of programs a major Republican politician has campaigned against in the last 30 years.  With a review of policy from Goldwater’s era to now, you could watch the Republican Part organize, with great fervor, not to fix the things which are broken, but to break the things that work.  

It doesn’t matter that they couldn’t fix anything or create anything of lasting value, because the more obvious it is that the government sucks, the more right they were all along.

The Tea Party is just the second generation of modern, American conservative philosophy, and we’re all siting here watching as they’re staring into an abyss where the American government falters and loses solvency or power and respect all around the world and they don’t care because they don’t have to care, because this is what they’ve been working towards all along.  Total failure for everyone is their victory condition.  

 

It’s almost Zen, in an evil, generational-narcissism sort of way.  If on the road to Enlightenment, you come to meet the Buddha, kill the Buddha.  If on the road to a perfect America, you come to run the government, kill the government.  

 

They’ll greet you as liberators.

When you hear friends talk about “makers” and “takers,” who are they talking about?
Thanks Forward Progressives for the graphic. http://on.fb.me/16AKkTR

I fact-checked this. It’s not quite true. THE REALITY IS ACTUALLY WORSE. The US is missing between $410-$500 billion in tax dollars from 2010. In that same year, we spent roughly $64 billion on SNAP benefits. That means tax evasion is costing about six to eight times more than the food stamp program. So where are the laws to crack down on tax evasion to fix the deficit?

That idea sounds downright un-American to Joe Desena, founder of the rival Spartan Race obstacle-course series. His competitors are timed and their results posted, with many aspiring to earn a slot in the Spartan World Championship this weekend. Likening to communism events that promote “hand-holding over competition,” Desena said, “How well is that everybody-gets-a-trophy mentality working in our schools?”

Desena also contends that eliminating timing chips and results pages is a sure way to increase profit—while shielding one’s customers’ names from competitors. For Spartan, the cost of tracking and posting performances is significant, he says. “If you can pull the wool over your customers’ eyes and convince them that communism is better, you can drop at least $40,000 to your bottom line every race,” he said.

Old people totally horrified by the fact that KIDS THESE DAYS aren’t as competitive as long distance-runners back in the good old days

This article made me laugh. Young people aren’t running marathons as fast as they used to! Oh, the horror!

Clearly, according to the article, this is due to communism, hand-holding, generational apathy, and “a growing embrace of mediocrity.” It certainly has nothing to do with more people participating in these events (the LA marathon had around 11k registrants when it began in 1986, 30 years later, it was more than 25,000 people; in 2011, more than half a million people finished a marathon) or people learning that running really far really fast isn’t that great for your body. And it definitely can’t be related to the idea that fitness should be fun and non-competitive to draw more people to it. Oh, or, as one commenter points out, that people in their 50s who run marathons are probably pretty elite athletes who have been doing it for a long time, versus many more first-time marathoners in their 20s and 30s.

Nope. It’s none of those things. Definitely communism.

Can I just remind everyone that the original Marathon run resulted in the messenger dying?
