I asked her if I could hold her hand, she said yes. I later asked her if I could kiss her, she said yes, and proceeded to express her gratitude for me asking consent. I can’t even begin to grasp how perfect last night turned out to be.

This week’s episode was deep man.
this show is everything
In another episode of Mississippi Politics: Which conservative can out conservative the other conservatives? — more affectionately known as How stupid can you get? to some of us Mississippi natives — Governor Phil Bryant is, per the usual course, using the immediate immigration influx of in-need children from Latin American to ignore the greater issue of US imperialism in an attempt to make his own party look better than the other party. In doing so he conveniently ignores the fact that our government is the reason there is an influx of these children in the FIRST place. Obama, just like Bush (See Iraq & Afghanistan), does not know when to stay out of other nation’s political processes because it jeopardizes the monopoly of American business abroad. Nonetheless, it is amazing that it is 2014 and the Mississippi citizenry, a gross reflection of the broader US in the matters of international relations, doesn’t know shit about US history, as in people still do not know what a “Banana Republic” is (no, not the clothing store). The sheer ignorance of it helps explain why so few seem to know or care that the reason we have an influx of immigrants (as a Honduran myself, and a human being, I welcome them) is BECAUSE our government supported and was tacit in the Honduran Coup of ‘09, propping up a violent rightwing government as US foreign policy has done all over Latin America for decades. Phil Bryant is about as knowledgeable as a brick in these matters, yet you would never know it because he panders to the lowest common denominator of the US political process — the ultra conservative, a demographic abundant in Mississippi.
Because indigenous Africans willingly boarded ships with inhuman conditions for the wonderfully better life of slavery in the United States ya’ll. This was found on the Facebook page Sons of Confederate Veterans, and Southerners wonder why they have the reputation they do.
someone has not read up on history at all, i’ll give you a hint, it’s this guy above. i don’t want to live on this planet anymore.
Doing The Pledge of Allegiance every school day for 4 or 5 years is one of those things that don’t seem strange when you’re young
But then you get older and you realized “yeah, swearing your allegiance to a flag for about 200+ days out of 365 day year in unity with other small children is without a doubt a creepy as fuck activity”
wait is that actually a thing american schoolchildren do what the fuck
yes, some schools allow you to opt out in high school, but yes, this is a thing that all americans grew up with. it’s completely fucked, and wrong in every sense, especially due to the the line “one nation under god” because that is a deliberate breach of separation of church and state (which is also the reason why some high school students could opt out). Also, Texas has pretty much a monopoly on the text books that students grade k-12 read in american public schools, meaning that 9/11 was one of the most disastrous days in history, racism doesn’t exist because of Martin Luther King Jr., and that america is right allllllllll the time. In conclusion, indoctrination is commonplace here in the good ol’ u.s. of a.
god i love this show
One of the most sinister things about normalized racism is you don’t have to have bad intentions to be racist, you just have to remain ignorant.
The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014)
such a good movie
2 oz. Calvados
1 oz. Pummelo Rind Infused Cointreau
.5 oz. Lemon Juice
1 oz. Egg White
Double shake all ingredients and strain into a coupe rimmed with sugar.
Note: This is another variation on a classic drink. There is much debate regarding the proportions of the original. This is the way I like to do it. I encourage people to fine-tune it to their own taste.
I didn’t realize a sidecar had egg white… that sounds incredible.
