Can we appreciate the fact that there’s an extreme sport known as “Extreme Ironing”? 

Like basically people take ironing boards to crazy locations and iron their shirts

There are no limits to what these people will do 

“Hell yeah I’m an athlete" 

You thought you’ve seen it all huh? Well, there’s more.

Oh, don’t mind me, just ironing some shirts

These people will always find time, no matter what

Oh and my favorite

This is such a slap in the fucking face.

So my aunt (Trump supporter) posted a status about how much she loves that Trump really wants to honor the troops and their families, and how she doesn’t think she has heard another speech that comes from the heart in the same way since Ronald Reagan.  She thinks he has their back.  Meanwhile I am pissed.

My Father served in the military for 25 years.  For 25 years he put his life on hold to serve the American people.  He was away from his family.  He missed birthdays and important events.  And he really liked it.  He just retired, because he was passed over for promotion AGAIN and decided that he was done, he didn’t want to do the same stuff for another twenty years.

You know what he told me on the phone?  My Father told me that he got his Presidential letter thanking him for his service, and it was UNSIGNED by Trump.  So was my Step-mother’s for her sacrifice as a military wife.  Trump couldn’t be bothered to sign a letter thanking my Father for his dedication over the last twenty five years.  So if he wants to put out a speech saying that he has the troops’ backs, it’s all fucking lip service.

DON’T LET ANYONE TRY TO TELL YOU THAT TRUMP CARES ABOUT THE MEN AND WOMEN IN UNIFORM.

Hey kids, now you know what to do with your vinyl when you get fed up with it:  Send it off to the front! Slacker Record Week (I kid you not) took place from October 28 to November 2nd 1918 in the US. Citizens collected unwanted discs and sent them to the forces. This poster was designed by Charles Buckles Falls, who was on the job for book donations too.
