Tumblr has amazed me with the amount of love and support we show for each other. So many of you chipped in to help get Mari a new wheelchair, and to help Friday’s mom with some financial troubles. I’m hoping that we can do it one more time for Rosa Sparks.
Rosa means the world to me. If it’s $5 or $50 chip in.
Being a twentysomething is like being on a perpetual emotional rollercoaster—there’s a lot of screaming, adrenaline, and occasionally vomit. Our age entitles us to be sensitive about everything. “I feel, like, just off today. Maybe it’s the weather or…

“Bye bye, Gaddafi, Bashar your turn is coming.”—Chanting by anti-Assad Syrian protesters • A show of an often apparent aspect of the uprisings throughout the Arab world in 2011, but still one that bears further notice as protests in Syria continue to be met with deadly force by the government. Namely, the extent to which each uprising inspires and fuels the next — from Tunisia forward, to Egypt, Libya, the upheavals in Yemen and Bahrain, and Syria, protesters have at times been buoyed and given resolve by victories and protests in foreign lands. The ability of a movement to stay cohesive in the face of such violent force can demand a ton of bravery and human solidarity, so it’s a boon that those besieged by the government in Syria can take heart in the fall of another of the region’s longtime dictators. source (via • follow)
“Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything — all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure – these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.”—
So what is your opinion of the scandals rocking U of Miami? Even Mizzou is getting dragged into it because Haith is now coach here. A lot of people in Missouri are calling for him to be fired. If allegations prove to be true, we do have a clause that allows us to fire him.
I should be happy about this and in some ways I am. I don’t want a conservatism devoted to soothing the culture war base with government aid and support. But a reasonable small government conservative? Someone who does not actually despise government? Someone who can see the fruits of compromise for the body politic as a whole?
Tumbleweeds, no? Even Huntsman joined the hands up moment - perhaps the most important single moment in recent GOP politics - when all the candidates declared they would walk away from a debt deal that was 10 - 1 spending cuts to revenue increases. That was when they told us they were an ideological and religious movement, not a party fit for actual government.
Is it bad that I'm exploiting my Google+ experiences for exposure there and on Tumblr?
Like…I’m not lying at all about how I feel about sex and why I feel that Michele Bachmann’s footlong corn dog-eating photo is a laugh riot. I’m not commenting on that thread anymore…after saying the following:
Look. It doesn’t matter that she likes to suck dick (she may also be straight and not like to suck dick, but that’s another point entirely). It’s a hilarious picture because sex acts (by males and females, straight and gay) are funny. They look funny, they sound funny…heck, if they showed porn on Comedy Central, I’d be rolling on the floor laughing 24/7 while gasping “I can’t believe I look like that when I’m doing that! HAHAHAHA!”
I guess at this point I’m unelectable, but I don’t really care. People need to take themselves and what they do in bed a little less seriously.
Whether you agree or disagree with my (apparently sexist) sentiments, feel free to add to the conversation. Fuck! If you think I’ve come straight from the fiery pits of Hell, then say so! So down to take hate today. I’m walkin’ on sunshine.
