Remember that time Americans literally overthrew their government to prevent political power from being inherited?

Well, for some people.

Read More

by Wes & Tony

I wish people read to me more.

Be careful what you wish for! It just might come true… but not on its own, only if you put a lot of work into it.

But, then again be careful what you wish for if you plan to put a lot of work into it, because it just might not come true!

Basically, if wishes are involved, be really, really careful. In fact, it’s probably a good idea to just stop wishing entirely. That’s why, instead of wishing, I state my “Preference of Outcome.” It’s a totally non-cumbersome way of expressing what I want to happen!

My friend Armando will say, “Hey, look! It’s famous billionaire Ted Turner!” at which point I robotically raise my arms and shout, “PREFERENCE OF OUTCOME: Me having a lot of money!” See, this way I have avoided setting my expectations too high for something that will never happen, and I also am avoiding implying that I’m ready and willing to do the work to get to that place. The best of both worlds! And no one is weirded out by me shouting like a broken robot with unrealistic hopes!

PREFERENCE OF OUTCOME: You trying this sometime! You just might like it ;)

When reality overtakes satire: Scottish edition

by TeaPartyCat (Follow @TeaPartyCat)

Last night I joked on Twitter that I didn’t care about whether Scotland voted for independence since no one had explained how to blame it on Obama:

Sorry, I just can’t make myself care whether Scotland secedes from England until someone explains how it’s all Obama’s fault.

— Top Conservative Cat (@TeaPartyCat) September 17, 2014

And then only minutes later I got this reply:

@TeaPartyCat Read the end of this @davidfrum piece…he explains how Scottish secession will be Obama’s fault http://t.co/FuntgDxC1a

— Clay C. (@ClayC1969) September 17, 2014

So I checked it out, and sure enough, if Scotland votes for independence, Frum wants to blame Obama:

In February 1995, Bill Clinton traveled to Ottawa to speak in favor of Canadian unity. “In a world darkened by ethnic conflicts that tear nations apart, Canada stands as a model of how people of different cultures can live and work together in peace, prosperity, and mutual respect,” Clinton told the Canadian Parliament. The U.S. president was a more popular figure in Quebec than that province’s own politicians, and his words likely contributed to the narrow margin of victory of the ‘No’ side in Quebec’s second and final secession referendum later that year. President Obama has played no equivalent role in the debate over the survival of America’s close ally, the United Kingdom. If the ‘Yes’ vote prevails on September 18, Obama’s omission should be remembered in the postmortem assignment of blame for a potential disaster for the peoples of Britain, Europe, and the Western alliance.

You see, Obama is now responsible for the outcomes of votes in other countries because he didn’t use his magic speech-making abilities to hypnotize them into serving the interests of the United States.

Look, if you believe in democracy, shouldn’t people in other countries be allowed to vote for their own interests and not be browbeat into voting for America’s interests?

It’s all yet more proof how hard it is to write satire when these assholes find a way to do things that were previously thought to be jokes.

Kanye West, Asshole of the Day for September 15, 2014

image

by GirlGetALife (Follow @GirlGetALife)

Rapper and self-declared genius Kanye West is known for putting his foot in his mouth. Remember 'George Bush doesn't care about black people’? And ‘Taylor, Imma let you finish…’? Those - and his other bone headed moments - don’t compare to Kanye’s latest gaffe: demanding that a fan in a wheelchair ‘stand up’.

We couldn’t make this stuff up if we tried.

Because he’s “the No. 1 living and breathing rock star”, Kanye needed every fan at his Australian concert to be on their feet, praising his name and showing respect for his obvious genius. When he noticed that two fans didn’t comply with his demands, he called them out.

"I can’t do this show until everybody stand up. Unless you got a handicap pass and you get special parking and s**t."

Kanye let one a fan with a prosthetic leg off the hook because she waved her leg in the air (like she just didn’t care?) to prove that she wasn’t being disobedient.

When he saw that yet another minion failed to follow orders, Kanye stopped the show and barked “This is the longest I’ve had to wait to do a song, it’s unbelievable.”

The crowd tried to let The Great Kanye know the fan was in a wheelchair and couldn’t stand but, Kanye being Kanye, needed to verify this for himself and sent a bodyguard to confirm that the fan was actually unable to stand.

Kanye has his defenders. They say he was just trying to get the crowd into the show. To them we say: people get up and dance when the performance warrants it. Fans shouldn’t have to be commanded to show their excitement…they should do it willingly.

More importantly: it is never, ever, ever okay to single out someone’s differences, especially in a crowd.

When he made the Bush comment, Kanye thought he was saying something deep and meaningful, but he just didn’t have the words (besides…it’s not like he was wrong). When he interrupted Taylor Swift, he thought he was showing respect to the Queen of the Glittery Onsies: Beyonce. The individuals under attack may have been insulted and a large part of the population may have been annoyed (even slightly amused), but no one was hurt.

But with this recent gaffe Kanye put all eyes on a wheelchair user - and not in a good way. He made a spectacle of himself and infuriated disability advocates across the world.

Any sane person would have stopped with the ‘prove you are disabled’ routine after the first fan showed off their prosthetic limb. But not Kanye - no, he had to keep it going. Watch the video and see for yourself: it’s awkward, it’s rude and it’s downright humiliating.

We won’t even mention that he used the word ‘handicap’ - a term that has been out of vogue for some time now.

President Obama called Kanye a jackass - twice. And now we’re naming him Asshole of the Day. It’s been a long time coming.

WHY ARE PEOPLE WITH PENISES GIVEN FREE CONDOMS WHEN THEY DON’T NEED TO HAVE SEX BUT PEOPLE WITH VAGINAS STILL HAVE TO PAY FOR THINGS LIKE PADS AND TAMPONS FOR SOMETHING THEY CAN’T STOP

wow,

amen sista

Vote me for president I will make all tampons and pads fucking free

Because some men are so unwilling to use condoms that they have to make them free. Otherwise they’d be able to complain about condoms being “too expensive” or that “it’s too awkward to go to the store and buy them.” It’s not for the benefit of the men, it’s to prevent women from getting pregnant or getting  STDs for stupid reasons. 

Tampons and pads should still be free, though.

detrea:

The premise of minimum wage, when it was introduced, was that a single wage earner should be able to own a home and support a family.  That was what it was based on; a full time job, any job, should be able to accomplish this.

The fact people scoff at this idea if presented nowadays, as though the people that ring up your groceries or hand you your burgers don’t deserve the luxury of a home and a family, is disgusting.

How to know that you hate women

How to know that you hate women:

" There is a tendency to judge the actions of those with the least amount of power the same as those with more power and then ask, “Isn’t that what equality means?” It’s a clever rhetorical evasion of the issue. Equality is the goal, but to pretend that we actually exist as equals right now is to ignore reality."
