eligibility

Y'all, what the fuck happened to “innocent until proven guilty”?

What the fuck happens to “tried by a jury of your peers”?

What the fuck do I have a justice system for if cops become executioners at traffic stops?

How the fuck are we gonna call other countries barbaric when cops empty 8 clips into the wrong car, and we kill people for committing a crime that they may later be deemed to have not committed?

Why are my motherfuckers giving nazi salutes at party conventions?

Why are we hearing folks talk about putting folks in camps when we just did that 80 years ago?

How are you eligible to run my country if you could have raped a 13 year old.

Why the fuck do we value money over basic human rights?

How the hell is it a constitutional right to have a gun, but not food!?

Why are we calling ourselves a Christian nation but homeless and starving motherfuckers fill our cities?

Do you have the slightest fucking clue how much food we waste? Or water?

Who in the hell thought it would be a good idea to put Creationism back in schools?

How the fuck is it controversial to say that trans people or gay people deserve basic human rights?

Why are we ignoring all the native people that get killed every day? Are you telling me goddamn animals get protected status but a population that motherfuckers are trying to wipe out can’t!?

Why is an ex KKK leader running for office!?

How is it that we believe distant stars will have power over our live, a goddamn underground rodent can predict the weather, and you should turn to celebrities for medical advice, but highly educated and trained fucking scientists from around the world are lying about shit.

How the fuck can you write stories in racial diverse places, but everybody in the goddamn story is white?

Why are some of y'all still telling Mexicans to go home? Bitch lots of ‘em was here before yo’ ass got here. Most everything west of the Mississippi and north to Canada was Mexico. And as Mexicans come in every flavor on this planet, you all need to stop with the “But you don’t look Mexican”!

Why do we have fried butter?

Fuck this shit. I’m changing my goddamn name.

Conoces a alguien que te hace cosquillas por dentro, que vuelve la noche eterna y las poesías realidad. Y lo amas no  tan sólo lo que te da sino por lo que te hace sentir, por lo que ha transformado en ti. Porque le roba al tiempo las horas, y lo único que esperas es que sea recíproco y que te tome la mano cuando caminas de puntitas en el precipicio. Conoces a alguien con el que ya no alcanzan te quieros, con el que pierdes el miedo a todo, con el que te parece que el cielo no está tan inalcanzable. Y lo eliges a diario, te quedas… lo incluyes en tu presente y en tu mañana. Conoces a alguien con quien emprendes un viaje sin retorno, que  protagonizas una nueva aventura a diario, que te habita, que te enciende, que le pone música a tus silencios, y color a tus días grises. Y tienes urgencia de su voz, y tienes ganas de siempre escuchar de sus labios tu nombre y ver esa sonrisa que te devuelve la esperanza. Conoces a alguien que le da sentido a tus heridas de ayer, que no te remienda pero te ayuda a buscarte.  Y todo lo que quieres es estar a su lado, aburriéndose, mirando el horizonte, contando las mismas cosas que antes los hicieron reír, cantando… dejando ir lo que pesa, descubriendo la vida, juntos.

“Several options for IOC

What that looks like remains anyone’s guess, but a few seem to be on the table.
The first, and probably least likely, is to do nothing. The IOC is reviewing the McLaren report, but its conclusions point to Russia subverting the anti-doping system to allow its athletes to cheat at the Sochi Olympics.
For months, anti-doping leaders and athletes have called for a ban and those only intensified this week. To many, the decision is seen as a referendum on whether the IOC has the zero-tolerance approach to doping that Bach has professed it does.

Another route the IOC could pursue would be to delegate deciding the eligibility of Russian athletes to their international sport federations (IFs).

That could set up a system similar to what the IAAF passed last month. In extending its ban of Russia, the federation created a rule change allowing athletes to seek exceptional eligibility by demonstrating that they had been subject to an effective anti-doping system outside of Russia and that they had not been tainted by the Russian system. The IAAF said then that it expected few would meet that criteria. Of the 136 applications it has received, the IAAF’s doping review board has approved just two — that of whistleblower and 800-meter runner Yuliya Stepanova and of long jumper Darya Klishina, who trains in Florida.” - USA Today

anonymous asked:

What do you think about the DNCleak? There are emails of them talking about "package-eligible gays" they can use in Philly. We're just another pawn in their game.

I think you might be misunderstanding the emails in question. I just read them all over and it doesn’t seem to be particularly malicious, as they’re discussing this with the LGBT finance director and trying to figure out who they’d like to invite to attend to the DNC. Most of the names they’ve included in the email that are easily googleable are prominent members of the LGBT community or activists and allies of the LGBT community. What’s wrong with inviting LGBT folks to your party? Would you rather they not be there at all? Like, I’m pretty sure you’re overthinking this. Do you even know what “package eligible” means? I sure as hell don’t. I tried to look for that in the emails and couldn’t find another reference.

There is a legitimate bone to pick with the DNC over some of the stuff they said about Bernie Sanders’s Jewish Faith, or his being non-practicing. That’s a legitimate bone. But what you’re saying… that isn’t one.

Also please remember that the DNC is not directly connected to Hillary Clinton’s or Bernie Sanders’s campaign. 

Frank and I went to dinner, bowling, smoked a cigarette together and watched Game of Thrones. He has to get up at 630am for a shooting tournament (I’m not going because I am not ready to meet his father who has been described as the ultimate gun nut republican.) so we didn’t have sex. After the tournament we are going to a different gun range to shoot together. It has been over a year since I’ve gone shooting. It just seems so… Crass? I dunno. I don’t want people to think I’m so gun nut. I am absolutely pro gun control, way stricter than most. I would happily give up my gun. Hell, by some standards, I wouldn’t be eligible to own a gun due to my prior mental health issues (suicide attempt by OD).

It was a really nice night even without sex. I’m starting to realize having my emotional needs met decreases my intense desire for sex 24/7. I’m fine that we didn’t have sex tonight because it was nice just spending the evening with him. I’m actually not super horny. I could definitely fuck but I don’t think I’m going to masturbate. I hope that’s progress… I’m not sure. My sex drive was pretty out of control. Constant. That’s all I ever focused on. But knowing I can fuck Frank whenever I want makes that intense desire minimize a tad, down to a more manageable level. We are on pace for the 5 times a week which is what I told him is my minimum. I have this concern I’m abnormal. But who the fuck cares. This is me.

Probe reveals feds pressuring agents to

rush immigrant visas

– even if fraud is feared

Higher-ups within U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services are pressuring rank-and-file officers to rubber-stamp immigrants’ visa applications, sometimes against the officers’ will, according to a Homeland Security report and internal documents exclusively obtained by The Daily.

A 40-page report, drafted by the Office of Inspector General in September but not publicly released, details the immense pressure immigration service officers are under to approve visa applications quickly, sometimes while overlooking concerns about fraud, eligibility or security.

Raising Retirement and Medicare Ages Can Backfire

By Glen Hiemstra | August 26th, 2011

There was a time when I thought that raising the retirement age was a good idea. People were living longer and healthier, and most work was information or service work. So why not? The U.S. age for Social Security is already going up to 67. What would be the harm in raising it to 70?

More recently I have come to the view that this would be bad public policy. Why? For those in the top 50% of earners life span is indeed increasing, but for those in the bottom 50% of earners life span is barely changing. Raising the retirement age would be quite harmful to those earning less, who are often in the most physically demanding jobs.

Digby has written about this with passion and clarity.

Then there is the recent proposal being floated to save some Medicare spending by increasing the eligibility age from 65 to 67 here in the U.S. This would be a disaster for many, many people age 65-67, who could not afford private health insurance (if they could get it) and may no longer be covered by employers. And it may not save much money for the government. It is Insurance 101 to keep younger, healthier people in your program. In fact a recent analysis shows that while there may be a small saving in Medicare itself, the costs to individuals, employers, and states, plus higher costs to remaining Medicare enrollees will be more than twice any anticipated savings. Uh oh. Maybe this idea needs to be re-thought.

2015 Hugos Eligibility.

My friend Annalee Flower Horne has informed me that I am eligible for Best Fan Writer in the Hugo Awards. Two knee-jerk reactions on this:

1. I am actually eligible for something. This is amazing. This is incredible. This blows my mind as that girl who can hardly get what she wants to say out of her mouth at times and is always worried about stepping on toes. I am humbled and I am honored that Annalee and others would urge me to consider myself eligible, would tell me that my writing matters and is important and touches people.

I did not ever think this before. I still don’t think it. I feel like one small voice that tries to do the best she can to be like the big, very important, ground-shaking voices that she admires and looks up to.

2. I loathe pressing myself forward for votes or anything like that, because of all that I expressed before. So I didn’t think I would be able to write this post at all. But Annalee pointed out that she feels it is quite important for women, particularly marginalized voices in women, to be on the ballot, so I am humbly putting my post here in the name of that sentiment and agreeing with that sentiment and, if you do incredibly believe that I am eligible, being honored with your consideration if you do consider me.

One thing I cannot deny about anything of this: I have been rather loud over 2015. Apparently, my Twitter account counts. A few of my other 2015 posts that I feel were particularly important are as follows:

When You Ask Me About Diversity (Or, When I Have No More Words to Give) on my personal book blog.

This Is How I Live: An Open Letter to Meg Rosoff over on my Medium profile.

Let Us Talk about Ice Cream. And Sprinkles. (In response to The Horn Book) over on my Medium profile.

On Voice, And What It Takes to Wield It over on my Medium profile.

Why Do You Need To Tell This Story Right Now? as a moderator for @writingwithcolor

Of course, these are the pieces I felt the strongest about when I wrote them and I offer them up as an example of what I wrote over 2015. I think that is all I can say, except for thank you for finding anything important in my words, over 2014, over 2015, or even now. It means everything, particularly on days when even I’m not sure if I’m saying the right things.
