Putting aside the awful, idiotic, late-to-the-game, baldly misogynistic content of this steaming pile, it’s typical that Fox News distinguishes itself by being the kind of news network that would use the term ‘banging bodies’ in a headline. Family values!
Also, what even IS this paragraph:
“But Keagan et al didn’t come out of nowhere. Some of our favorite “old-skool” sitcom stars like Jennifer Aniston, Jane Krakowski and Julia Louis-Dreyfus have transformed themselves in recent years from somewhat awkward to stylish sex symbols.”
Aaaaaare you fucking kidding me?

gross.

[The Native Americans] didn’t have any rights to the land and there was no reason for anyone to grant them rights which they had not conceived and were not using…. What was it they were fighting for, if they opposed white men on this continent? For their wish to continue a primitive existence, their ‘right’ to keep part of the earth untouched, unused and not even as property, just keep everybody out so that you will live practically like an animal, or maybe a few caves above it. Any white person who brought the element of civilization had the right to take over this continent.

and people ask me why i fucking hate ayn rand. not only is she a worthless writer (no, seriously, i get what you’re saying—you don’t need to write a 500pg pile of crap about ego-trips) but her politics are FUCKED up.

(via indomada)

…where is this from? Theres absolutely no part of this that’s not offensive and even though I’m not a Rand fan I’m hoping this can’t possibly be true. Its just too fucking hateful for someone so much of the country idolizes.

(via supersoygrrrl)

Oh it’s real. It’s from her lecture “Philosophy, Who Needs It” given at West Point in 1974, published in Ayn Rand Answers: The Best of Her Q & A. The link goes directly to the Google Books search result.

How can one possibly like this woman.

(via coquilles)

alexandernevermind:

ernestsewell:

46% of Mississippi Republicans say inter-racial marriage should be illegal, to 40% who say it should be legal. And it seems Palin does better with the racist crowd. 

Palin’s net favorability with folks who think interracial marriage should be illegal (+55 at 74/19) is 17 points higher than it is with folks who think interracial marriage should be legal (+38 at 64/26.)
Barbour is the GOP favorite in the state, unless you look at just the ban-inter-racial-marriage crowd, then Huckabee jumps to the head of the list.
If Barbour makes a bid for the White House, he would have home-state support. His 37% in an eight-candidate field puts him at almost a 2:1 advantage over the next contender, neighboring Arkansas’ Mike Huckabee, who earns 19%. Newt Gingrich and Sarah Palin each get 10%, with Mitt Romney back at 6%, Michele Bachmann at 5%, Tim Pawlenty at 3%, and Ron Paul at 2%, with 9% undecided or preferring someone else.

Without Barbour in the race, Huckabee gets most of Barbour’s supporters, jumping up to 35%, followed by Palin’s 20%, Gingrich’s 18%, and Romney still way behind at 8%, and the others pretty much running in place. Romney has typically done poorly in Southernstate primary matchups in recent PPP polls, but this is his worst performance yet.

46% of these hardcore Republican voters believe interracial marriage should be illegal, while 40% think it should be legal. With Barbour included, Huckabee gets more support (22%) from the former than the latter (15%), as does Palin (13-6). The support for Bachmann (10-2), Gingrich (13-8), and Pawlenty (4-1) works the opposite way.
The south, and the Republican party, still have a serious racism problem.  And Mississippi is at the head of the pack.  And what’s really sick is that 46% of Republicans were willing to admit to a stranger (pollster) that they don’t approve of the mingling of the races.  Imagine how high the REAL number is.

This does not surprise me at all.

WASHINGTON—Unemployment plummeted and stocks soared Tuesday after Republican leaders fulfilled their promise to cut funding for National Public Radio, a budgetary move that has completely rejuvenated the flagging U.S. economy. “Since eliminating federal spending for NPR, America’s economic outlook is brighter than it’s been in decades, with manufacturing on the rise and† millions of jobs once sent overseas now returning to our shores,” said Sen. Mark Kirk (R-IL), adding that by eliminating funds for NPR, the deficit has been slashed by 0.000004 percent and a newly thriving middle class once again has cause to believe in the American dream. “Pulling funding for Car Talk and Planet Money alone has created 4.2 million jobs and generated a $2 trillion budget surplus.” Republicans announced Thursday they will now turn their attention to cutting the National Park Service, a move that should ensure Social Security’s solvency for the next 350 years.

 The identity of the 9-year-old tragically killed in this morning’s deadly rampage is Christina Taylor Greene.
Family says she was vibrant, excited about life, and she was the “best daughter in the world.”Born on September 11, 2001, Greene was excited about the political process, was on the student government, and went to the Giffords event today to learn more about the political process, family members say.
Greene attended Mesa Verde Elementary School. She was the only girl on the CDO baseball team - she loved the sport, as well as horseback riding and swimming.

Glee is a show that stars mainly white characters with a secondary cast of token “minorities” which is illustrated by the fact that only the white cast members were featured on the cover of Rolling Stone. The show is notorious for tokenism. It does so by including a limited number of individuals from oppressed groups to make a TV show (or workplace) “feel” more inclusive while maintaining the status quo. In this case the status quo is white and heterosexual. Token characters are usually relegated to a secondary or sidekick role. In Glee, nearly all the secondary characters are tokenized even as the writers attempt to cover it up by “special episodes about –insert oppression here–”.

Fun fact:  When I had my token sucky food service job at Haagen-Dazs, I entertained myself by purposely underserving anyone who wore Ed Hardy.

I hope it isn’t. This has to be a parody. Have we gotten to this level in America? I’m afraid to find out.

I know you said you were afraid to find out, but I wish it were a parody. Though, there’s still hope. The revisions won’t be finalized until May.

I only got a minute in.  It is abnormally bad, and I feel obligated to like anything that takes place in San Francisco.
