This is Susan Robinson, one of the last people in the country who can preform late term abortions after the murder of Dr. George Tiller. This is from an awesome documentary called After Tiller, about the last 4 late-term abortion practitioners in the country. It’s a great watch and available on Netflix, would strongly recommend.

This is not a photo manipulated picture. This is one of many of our fallen soldiers. Their remains are gathered up and bagged and sold as some merchandise like their lives are some sick joke.
With your help, we can end this disgrace and bring these fallen warriors home to their families instead of placed on shelves.

You know what I’m starting to think you guys aren’t even being sarcastic with this anymore

Gangsta Avengers AU

Wherein the avengers are a secret vigilante group that eventually find each other and go after criminals the hard way.

Some body write this who isn’t me.

*casually slips these in*

Literally just happened:

"is that an Avengers gangster AUOHMYGOD *screech*"

Let me just add this….

I’ll just leave this here..

I’m so down for this!!

Can somebody do the thing where they write the thing and then tag me in the thing?

Okay yes this…. but in 1930s Shanghai?  It’s got the jazz and the sleazy/sultry nightclubs and the international cosmopolitan thing…

image

image

And with more ladies who don’t give a shit?

image

image

image

And class divisions?  (The International Concession vs. Shanghai vs. countryside)

image

And impending war?  (Japanese movements in Manchuria…)

image

And espionage?  (Spying for the Americans, the British, the Japanese, the Nationalists, the Communists…)

image-

(Movie images taken from hasty searches for Shanghai Triad, White Countess, and Lust Caution.  None of which are *good* movies, but decently show 1930s Shanghai…)

Um, only if they can manage to do it without exoticism and fetishizing the Shanghainese women.  I’d rather it be all Western than check off all the Yellow Fever tropes like they usually do.  

100% agree with you!!!  I was worried about the same thing when I was putting these images together — not just exotification of Chinese women, but also contrasting the “civilized” West with the impoverished China. But honestly, given how little response I get whenever I veer off of the typical fandom “sad boys kissing” tropes or the standard genderbends, and into the more exciting nation/race-bends, I don’t think anyone’s gonna do it.  So I guess I feel safe proposing this given that the 10 people who’d appreciate it are probably also people who wouldn’t fetishize/exoticize it?

Anyway, how I would see it working is:

- Nat is a Chinese, possibly communist, Spy

- Tony is Chinese-American, back in Shanghai to re-invest.  He’s trying to build the most ostentatious thing on the Bund.

- Steve is still American, grew up in New York, and he just spent his last dollar buying a ticket to Shanghai — coming here to try his luck.

- Sam is still American, was stationed in the Philippines, but fell in love with Shanghai and so came to Shanghai once he got out of the military.  Him and Steve meet up and rent a small apartment by the horse-racing tracks.

- Bucky is still American — as a boy he lived in New York, but then his parents moved to the International Concession, so he grew up in Shanghai.  He enjoys the Concession nightclubs, but sometimes he puts on a hat and goes out to explore the rest of Shanghai with some of his Chinese friends.  If he’s lucky, people don’t notice he’s white until halfway through a fight.  He meets Steve in one such fight.  They might have been childhood friends in New York, but Shanghai changes people.

- Pierce is Japanese, or possibly Chinese-Japanese, and talks about the importance of Westernization, hobnobs around the International quarter, but also goes to all the underground meetings.

- Fury is Chinese and runs one of the underground networks.  Which Nat works for.  Fury and Pierce studied together in Japan.

i think it’s funny how christianity made a big deal about mary being impregnanted by god and everyone was like “oh my god the son of god! we must worship him listen to his great wisdom.” 

meanwhile, if you said god knocked you up in ancient greece they’d just be like “yeah, me too.”

Okay, I laughed.

I love my First Lady

Can you please tell her to tell her husband to stop killing muslims? Thanks

literally all she does is try to make the country “healthy” by giving students shitty school lunches like please do something else and help your husband fix the economy! *goes awf*

Imma need y’all to learn how the United States Government works. You don’t have to like her or the president but learn that they do not makes the decisions, they really do not have very much power, the president does not have the power to just snap his fingers and make shit happen or change things. You have to have 2/3 vote from congress to take a shit, let alone do anything having to do with government. The entire government was set up to make sure that exact thing could never happen, that is why there are 3 branches and that little thing called checks and balances.

In fact let me just break this down for y’all right here. 

  • President has 2 OFFICIAL jobs, Commander and Chief of the Armed Forces, but he only controls a limited amount of the funding for those troops (enough for 90 to 120 days) to engage these troops in combat. He CANNOT just declare war. only congress can declare war. The second, Accountant over the Federal Budget. 
  • He also is responsible for creating and balancing the national budget, but everything has to be approved by congress with a 2/3 vote. 
  • He signs bills into law, can veto them as well, however congress can override his veto. 
  • He assigns judges to the Supreme court, with the senates approval. 
  • He assigns foreign ambassadors, with the senates approval. 
  • he creates his own cabinet for people to research into areas that he might not have the time to, these are the only people who do not have to get approval from senate
  • congress is made up of 535 people (100 senators 435 HoR) for any of them to come to 1 agreement has only happened once in the history of this country, and that was to go into WWII, and even that the house voted 434 to one (1st woman house of Representative she was from Maine too, she voted against WW1 and 2)  and the judicial branch can call anything unconstitutional and kill it as well. 

and if you think i’m lying you can literally google this shit in 2 seconds. 

That tea is delicious

SAY THAT SHIT AGAIN! 

I would love for people to remember this when they want to start blaming the president. Any president, though not all of them have had good ideas.

lemme get in here a sec.

The President needs a 2/3 vote in Congress to get practically anything done, right? Well currently, the 133th US Congress is split with 53 Democratic senators and 45 Republican senators and 201 Democratic representatives and 234 Republican representatives. That makes a pretty even split between the two major political parties. Ever since President Obama was elected into office, the Republicans have voted down every piece of legislation he’s attempted to pass, in an effort to pin him as the worst president in American history, so that they can go back to their white-washed elitist lives and keep all their hoarded money from the people. The President has been doing everything he can to change things, but he cannot do that without the approval of Congress. Remember that week-long shutdown we had? Yeah, that was because the Republicans weren’t getting exactly their way with the budget, so they decided to shut down the whole goddamn government until they got their way. The United States Government relies on compromise and agreement between the two parties, and we’re seriously lacking right now in that department.

So if you want to blame someone for our country’s issues, blame the goddamn Republicans for acting like tantrum-throwing two year olds.

CAN I GET A HELL YEAH ON THAT LAST SENTENCE OF THE LAST COMMENT!

we joke about procrastination but nothing is worse than the nauseating feeling of having every intention of doing something but physically not being capable of doing it and then feeling like you want to throw up because the deadline is just getting closer and closer.
