Fairly big update for you today, let's see what I have.
First up, pretty awesome spot via Copyranter:
Tampa Bay drafted a paralyzed player, who would have been in this year's draft class. Very, very classy.
I was just talking about Stephen King yesterday, so it's nice to see him asked to be taxed, but here is the more important quote:
I don't want you to apologize for being rich; I want you to acknowledge that in America, we all should have to pay our fair share. That our civics classes never taught us that being American means that -- sorry, kiddies -- you're on your own. That those who have received much must be obligated to pay -- not to give, not to "cut a check and shut up," in Governor Christie's words, but to pay -- in the same proportion. That's called stepping up and not whining about it. That's called patriotism, a word the Tea Partiers love to throw around as long as it doesn't cost their beloved rich folks any money.
This is a bathroom I would never, ever use. Although I guess it would certainly help you shit, just from fear.
MaddowBlog also covers the war on voting, here in Pennsylvania.
Totally not appropriate for work, but I love watching these three grandmas as they watch the Kim Kardashian sex tape:
The Good Men Project has a top ten list, of why you should only read top ten lists. Very clever, I especially like number four.
There's a big stink about Dan Savage and his recent remarks. I have a lot of thoughts about it, although he sums it up very well. Please have a read here, it's long, but it's worth it. And the sad but true follow up, a study has revealed that non-religious are more compassionate that those who are religious. Guess that's why the "Christian" Right has been able to draw up so much fake outrage and cries of being bullied when someone uses their own freedom of speech to disagree with them and point out some hypocritical facts about parts of religion.
But anyway, go read the first link, totally worth it. Have a great one, I'll be back with more soon!
