Hey guys! This is super important. Bernie Sanders may well be a godsend. But if we don’t vote for him in our state primaries he may not make it through to the election. In case you didn’t know, this man is an equal rights promoting, anti-poverty, pro-free education, pro-environmentalism feminist funded by the people, with the majority of his donations being less than $250. So register to vote for him in your state if you’re over 18, and further information to help you decide if you want to vote for him is in the link below:
“I can believe things that are true and things that aren’t true and I can believe things where nobody knows if they’re true or not.
I can believe in Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny and the Beatles and Marilyn Monroe and Elvis and Mister Ed. Listen - I believe that people are perfectable, that knowledge is infinite, that the world is run by secret banking cartels and is visited by aliens on a regular basis, nice ones that look like wrinkled lemurs and bad ones who mutilate cattle and want our water and our women.
I believe that the future sucks and I believe that the future rocks and I believe that one day White Buffalo Woman is going to come back and kick everyone’s ass. I believe that all men are just overgrown boys with deep problems communicating and that the decline in good sex in America is coincident with the decline in drive-in movie theaters from state to state.
I believe that all politicians are unprincipled crooks and I still believe that they are better than the alternative. I believe that California is going to sink into the sea when the big one comes, while Florida is going to dissolve into madness and alligators and toxic waste.
I believe that antibacterial soap is destroying our resistance to dirt and disease so that one day we’ll all be wiped out by the common cold like martians in War of the Worlds.
I believe that the greatest poets of the last century were Edith Sitwell and Don Marquis, that jade is dried dragon sperm, and that thousands of years ago in a former life I was a one-armed Siberian shaman.
I believe that mankind’s destiny lies in the stars. I believe that candy really did taste better when I was a kid, that it’s aerodynamically impossible for a bumble bee to fly, that light is a wave and a particle, that there’s a cat in a box somewhere who’s alive and dead at the same time (although if they don’t ever open the box to feed it it’ll eventually just be two different kinds of dead), and that there are stars in the universe billions of years older than the universe itself.
I believe in a personal god who cares about me and worries and oversees everything I do. I believe in an impersonal god who set the universe in motion and went off to hang with her girlfriends and doesn’t even know that I’m alive. I believe in an empty and godless universe of causal chaos, background noise, and sheer blind luck.
I believe that anyone who says sex is overrated just hasn’t done it properly. I believe that anyone who claims to know what’s going on will lie about the little things too.
I believe in absolute honesty and sensible social lies. I believe in a woman’s right to choose, a baby’s right to live, that while all human life is sacred there’s nothing wrong with the death penalty if you can trust the legal system implicitly, and that no one but a moron would ever trust the legal system.
I believe that life is a game, that life is a cruel joke, and that life is what happens when you’re alive and that you might as well lie back and enjoy it.”
It’s funny how people from around the world will jump on America’s every fault but meanwhile nobody seems to be paying much attention as Australians scream and cry in outrage as Tony fucking Abbott and the LNP take all of the best aspects of our country and destroys them. He is trying to take the worst parts of America and bring them over here.
There was always plenty wrong with Australia, but the thing is, instead of trying to fix our problems, the current government seems to be taking the things that were actually, genuinely good, and taking them away. We weren’t ideal but we still had a pretty decent standard of living and were doing decently in regards to welfare. There was still potential for the country to continue improving. Then we voted in Abbott. Basically fuck our privacy and liberty, fuck our environment, fuck our health care and education, fuck multiculturalism and acceptance (not that we were ever ideal there) and fuck the poor. That sums up the policies of the people currently in power. They want class warfare and they want to breed hate for anybody deemed ‘un-australian’ ie. anybody who disagrees with them.
Serious shit is going down in my country and I am angry. I am afraid. Everyone is.
The rest of the world can keep making funny posts about how everything in Australia will kill you, but the truth is the biggest danger we face is from our own government.
Ukip suspends councillor who claimed floods were caused by gay marriage
A Ukip councillor who blamed the Christmas and new year floods on the passing of gay marriage laws has been suspended from the party, a spokesman has said.
Henley-on-Thames councillor David Silvester, who defected from the Tories in protest at David Cameron’s support for same-sex unions, said he had warned the prime minister of “repercussions” if gay marriage went ahead. Read more
