Josh Hutcherson Joins Nonpartisan Anti-Corruption Movement
Represent.Us coalition, created by both conservatives and progressives, now enlists the help of Hollywood.
While Americans were casting ballots for President Tuesday night, South Dakota voters were also weighing in on a proposal designed to clean up government statewide. The measure passed, and now Represent.Us is hoping the victory will spur some momentum to do the same across the country.
On Thursday, the grassroots organization released a video in which Hutcherson, Martin Sheen, Laura Dern and other stars encourage the public to get similar measures put on their states’ ballots.
Represent.Us is ultimately hoping for nationwide passage of the American
Anti-Corruption Act, penned by Federal Elections Commission chair
Trevor Potter in 2012. The act calls for stricter guidelines on
lobbying, tougher ethics laws, and increased government transparency.
The act would also reform elections funding. Hutcherson has repeatedly called for the overturning of the 2010 Citizens United decision, in which the Supreme Court ruled the First Amendment protects corporate campaign donations.
This Blog Explicitly Welcomes All Ace/Aro Folks As Part Of LGBTQIA
Back in the Long Ago of multiple decades ago, if you weren’t Lesbian or Gay, you got tossed into a wastebasket in the corner marked Queer.
You were good enough to show up at rallies and prop up the numbers but ONLY IF YOU DIDN’T LOOK TOO STRAIGHT. Or come with your partner that appeared to be opposite-gender. But there wasn’t a seat at the table for you otherwise.
There still isn’t, in many cases. Biphobia, transphobia, acephobia, that’s all part of the fact that we don’t fit Corporate Gay image. We don’t fit the “JUST LIKE YOU ONLY GAY, STRAIGHT AMERICAN” that the big political orgs sold to try to get The Gay Agenda moved forward.
“Don’t worry, guys, we’ll take care of your needs, as soon as we get this other stuff done!”
And so we got sick of waiting, and we started making our own resources. Funnily enough, because we called them LGBTQ spaces and resources, they then benefitted everyone.
I’m sick to death of this anti-ace bullshit, because they were always there. Always. In the trash can of Not Corporate Gay. With me. With the other bi, pan, trans, queer, uncertain, awkward wonderful misfits.
Headcanon: A common misconception is that Symmetra lost her arm in an accident, and that’s why she now has a prosthetic limb. In reality, the Vishkar Corporation encouraged her to have it surgically replaced with a robot arm, allowing her to fully integrate light-bending technology into her work. She was originally against the idea, but not wanting to disappoint Vishkar, she eventually complied.

if memes are a contemporary form of anti-art, so be it, but they’re not. if anything could be identified as a sort of internet neodada it would be the type of work that the people of thejogging used to put together, things which operated under a specific understanding of the existing types of art they were working against or in parody of or in dialogue with. if you want to talk about internet viral images, get excited about the fact that a community for the creation and propegation of images exists almost entirely exterior to philosophies of artmaking. get excited by how multinational corporations try and consistently fail to mimic the visual language of that community for profit because there’s some kind of anonymous mass exhange of trust and failure that makes imposters automatically recognizable. note how activists more often than not are not considered imposters despite having an agenda and despite the fact that they use the same platforms as corporations and viral image makers do. do something with viral images besides making dadaism jokes.

These images, taken on three different days, all show a southbound Amtrak Floridian at Harrodsburg Siding. This is along the Louisville and Nashville, former Monon, between Bloomington and Bedford. The first image was taken at the north end of the siding—the train is being powered by an ex-Union Pacific E9A. The second and third images were taken in the middle of the siding and the final image shows a meet taking place at the south end.
It’s interesting to note that the Alco unit in the lead of that northbound freight, number 1332, is former Monon number 515. It will go on to become Indiana Hi-Rail Corporation number 332.
