"

The fact that so many on the right are valorizing Bundy—or, at minimum, tiptoeing around his obvious nutbaggery—is a testament to the enduring power of Waco and Ruby Ridge among conservatives. The rest of us may barely remember them, but they’re totemic events on the right, fueling Glenn Beck-ian fantasies of black helicopters and jackbooted federal thugs for more than two decades now.

Mainstream conservatives have pandered to this stuff for years because it was convenient, and that’s brought them to where they are today: too scared to stand up to the vigilantes they created and speak the simple truth. They complain endlessly about President Obama’s “lawlessness,” but this is lawlessness. It’s appalling that so many of them aren’t merely afraid to plainly say so, but actively seem to be egging it on.

The Right Wing needs to acquaint itself with the word “law”.

"Back when George W. Bush was president, liberals were regularly accused of being disloyal or anti-American if they disagreed with the policies the administration was undertaking. As Bush himself said, you were either with us or with the terrorists, and as far as many of his supporters were concerned, “us” meant the Bush administration and everything they wanted to do, including invading Iraq. You may have noticed that now that there’s a Democrat in the White House, conservatives no longer find disagreeing with the government’s policies to be anti-American; in fact, the truest patriotism is now supposedly found among those whose hatred of the president, and the government more generally, burns white-hot in the core of their souls."

Alanis Morissette - Ironic

The song grammar nerds, English majors, and linguists loooooove to pick apart. “NO ALANIS! RAIN ON YOUR WEDDING DAY ISN’T IRONIC, IT’S INCONVENIENT!”

But nothing in “Ironic” being ironic is the ultimate irony, so Alanis wins.

On making your bed

dearcoquette:

Is it strange that your advice to start by making your bed brought tears to my eyes? Being suicidal is basically the most difficult thing I’ve had to live with (pun slightly intended) and the simplicity of that first step… it just hit home. Thank you.


It may seem simple,…

I have to wake up so early that other people are still sleeping in my bed when I go to work. Does this mean I can never be successful? Because I feel like this post is telling me I won’t be successful. And that depresses me, but I can’t make my bed in order to make myself feel better.

I am so fucked.

"Americans may live in the richest country in the world, but it is in a society where about 10% of the population possesses nearly 90% of the nation’s assets. In a country of 312 million people the entire ruling class can fit comfortably into Yankee Stadium, with room left over to generously pass out free tickets to thousands of the 46.2 million Americans living below the poverty line. Democracy can never fulfill its potential under such circumstances, and the vaunted “American dream” is fast fading for the working class/middle class as the U.S. economic system seems headed into a second recession and the weakening of Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. Isn’t it time for the American people to directly question what’s wrong with capitalism, or at least inquire, in the words of an old saying: “Where are we going and what are we doing in this hand basket?”"

Kansas City suspect to be charged with hate crime in Jewish centre shooting. Frazier Glenn Cross, 73, killed a 14-year old boy and his grandfather outside a popular Jewish community center, and a third victim outside a nearby Jewish retirement home in the Kansas City suburb of Overland Park.
The incident has brought attention to Cross’s decades-long affiliation with hate groups. The Southern Poverty Law Center, a nonprofit that tracks hate movements in the US, said Cross was once the grand dragon of the Carolina Knights of the Ku Klux Klan. He has also been arrested for using intimidation tactics against African Americans, and he has authored a book filled with hateful rhetoric.

The biggest cowards cling to their gods and guns. Frazier attacked the old and the young at a place of worship during Passover. He knew they were vulnerable and unable to defend. 
The sociopathy of the right-wing in middle America is something we need to bring to the forefront. Rush Limbaugh uses violent rhetoric saying “CBS has just declared war on the heartland of America" about Colbert replacing Letterman. Limbaugh extended his war metaphors adding, “No longer is comedy going to be a covert assault on traditional American values [and] conservatives.” 
What about the heartland declaring war on America? The heartland as backbone of America is bullshit. The rural Red States are tax drains and socialized to the hilt, yet preach “on your own” politics. Let’s get real.
It is patently sick when conservatives use “take aim” and “declare war” rhetoric and their acolytes end up using guns to kill. [I am not making a literal connection between Cross and Limbaugh] It happens over and over and we pretend the situation was not stoked with hate and evil so obviously broadcasted from the top of the conservative hierarchy.
They will try to portray this guy as lone KKK, Hitler-loving wacko who hated Jews and blacks but it is a larger reflection on the heartland misanthropy and prejudice that is allowed to brew in small-mind America and instigated by the right wing media. 
I am sickened.

Captain America Shatters the Oculus

horrornews:

Opinions have been contentious regarding Mike Flanagan’s Oculus but audiences showed up this weekend for the first wide release horror film in about three months. The Blumhouse Productions/WWE Studios co-production got off to a modest start with a $12 million opening. According to Box Office Mojo, that’s about on par with the last haunted mirror flick to hit theaters, Mirrors, which opened to a tad more than $11 million.

Making more than double your budget in your opening weekend is now considered a “modest start,” apparently.
