War on science is heating up—Republicans can use an obscure law to destroy science-based regulations
Republicans on the House Science Committee tweeted an absolutely fake story with fake sources to pretend that everyone didn’t just experience a run of extraordinarily warm months, but the shot fired by the know-nothings didn’t go without rebuttal. ...

hi, so i’ve had to pay two medical bills this week, one was only about $50, but the other was almost $300. i was able to make rent just fine, but i don’t have a lot leftover. currently, my only source of income is selling my books and a freelance editing gig which i love, but isn’t giving me as many hours as i thought i’d get. this will change after New Year’s, but for now, i’m struggling quite a bit, so: 

i’m trying to get better at asking for help, especially when i can trade it for something (ie poems or editing). please help if you can, and message me if you want more info on one-on-one editing and workshopping services. reblogging this would help too. thank you friends. <3 <3 <3

Stop Jeff Sessions from becoming Attorney General. He would be disastrous for civil rights
Donald Trump announced that he will appoint Senator Jeff Sessions as U.S. Attorney General, or the top law enforcement agent in the country.This is outrageous, and would be disastrous for all civil rights. Sessions is a racist, homophobic, misogynist xenophobe. He cannot lead the department that safeguards the rights and liberties of people in the U.S.Sessions was rejected by Republicans for a federal judgeship in the 80s, because he was too racist. He has used the n-word, called civil rights groups like the NAACP un-American, and joked about liking the KKK, among many other racist remarks. As a Senator, he has fought all paths to citizenship for undocumented immigrants. He has defended Trump's idea to ban Muslim immigrants.Sessions is a danger to women and LGBTQ people. His actions as Alabama Attorney General to ban Gay-Straight Alliances on Alabama college campuses were ruled First Amendment violations. He voted against the Matthew Shepard Act, which added to the federal definition of hate crimes to include violent acts based on sexual orientation and gender identity. He voted against the Violence Against Women Act. He is also an outspoken opponent of women's abortion rights.
