In the mid-20th century, America was full of artists telling hard truths: Pete Seeger, Bob Dylan, Nina Simone, Marvin Gaye — a list that did justice to the era would fill pages. We had braver political leaders then too, and of many different sorts: Martin Luther King, Robert Kennedy, Gloria Steinem, Ralph Nader. Times, of course, have changed. In the early days of this century it often felt as if Jon Stewart and Bruce Springsteen were the only people telling the truth about anything. We may now be entering a season of renewal, but its buds are still tender and few, and need new artists to water them.

As Stewart prepares to hang up his proverbial boxing gloves, we would do well to recognize how important he’s been

Florida State’s 2015 Summer C is nearing its finale, as the fall semester creeps closer and closer. The summer’s been filled with countless memories, and without a doubt a few STD’s to last a lifetime. The strip has always been the most popular destination for new freshmen to experiment with alcoholism, conceal mid-grind boners, and enchant one-another back to their dorms because their roommate’s TOTALLY a heavy sleeper and won’t hear a thing. But somewhere between the Forever 21 USA crop-tops and 3 AM McDonalds binges, summer C freshmen have reported having already had enough of the Strip to last their entire undergraduate career.

Bernie Sanders Clearly In Pocket Of High-Rolling Teacher Who Donated $300 To His Campaign
BURLINGTON, VT—After accepting a check sent to his campaign office by a local elementary school teacher, presidential candidate Bernie Sanders was roundly criticized Monday as being firmly in the pocket of the high-rolling educator who had donated $300.
To Do List

1. Be nice to everyone, including myself

2. Make recordings in my own voice reciting my goals and plans - if I gotta listen to this voice every day, it might as well speak pleasant things

3. Stop biting my nails

4. Get a haircut - a whole bunch of ‘em cut

5. Trawl for ass at the Taj Mahal

anonymous asked:

Page, why are people so stupid? "DON'T FIGHT FIRE WITH FIRE." *one glance at the kin tag* "all otherkin should just kill themselves." *looks into the camera like I'm on the office*. But for real though, we cant educate everyone. -c-

-c- or be nice to everyone. I tried that. You know what happens when you do that? Nothing. They continue to spread more hate. And no matter how many times we try to educate people, more hate. So what are we supposed to do? Sit back and take it?


Apparently! :3c Everyone gets hate, after all! Why should we feel offended at loads of hate in our tags that are there specifically to make us feel like shit?

Calling a federal election where the campaign is so long might be considered crazy.

But if you really want crazy, check out the Rhinoceros Party.

The website www.PartyRhino.ca has such promises as the Loto-Senate, “a lottery game where all Canadians will be eligible to win a seat in the Senate.”

“It’s not going to be reserved for some old men who served the party well and got lifetime jobs,” said Rhino leader Sebastien CoRhino, in a telephone interview Monday from his home near Rimouski, Que.

CoRhino, whose real surname is Corriveau, said there’s also a promise to privatize the Queen “to save on taxes and to profit from subsidies.”

“It’s very expensive to have the Queen,” said CoRhino. “We’re not a colony any more. We’re stuck with the Queen of some other country. Why don’t we have our own Queen?”

Another part of the Rhino platform is to have a “Tax on the Black Market.” The party plans to add a cashier to the exit of the black market to collect as much as $333 billion a year. The key, of course, would be to find the exit.

Rhinoceros Party is the best. Canadian satire at its best.

update: fixed the eyes comment, in my efforts to go ‘radicool’ with the design I accidentally got one feature right lol.

Producers: Look at all the money we’re making with the power of nostalgia and franchise milking!

Um, sir, but what about the generalized misinformation and inaccuracy in a sequel to a movie that had been instrumental in teaching the masses about mammals’ relationship with therapsids in the 90s? W-what about the kids?

Producers: Aaaah fak’em.
