quotemadness:

“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.”

— Elisabeth Kübler-Ross

He uploaded this as a birthday present to me, though neither he nor I knew it.

Listening to him be honest and scared and insecure took me back to my earliest time as a fan. I was 17. I had moved out and was trying to finish high school and had a mostly bare room in a cheap apartment with two other people who would eventually (rightly) kick me out.

In that mostly bare room:

– a foam pad to sleep on

– a pile of clothes

– a bicycle

– a cheap stereo with turntable and maybe 20 records, including the one I played the most that fall, replicas

nithaunayos:

Fucking.

Vote.

jabberwockypie:

If you’re safely able to vote and do not vote for whoever the Democratic nominee is in November, you are every bit as culpable as any of those motherfuckers wearing the “Make America Great Again” hats, if Trump gets re-elected.

You’ll be every bit as guilty of the horrors that follow as every Baby Boomer who won’t stop listening to Fox News.

You will be every bit as responsible for the people who are going to die if Trump gets elected for another four years.

You’re not morally superior, or protesting or whatever the hell your rationale is.

If the “89″ in “hotmeat89″ is a birth year, and toastportent’s bio says he’s 22, then you were both old enough to vote in the LAST election, too.

How did that work out for you? Have you learned NOTHING?

We have been fucking telling you since the middle of 2016 that you need to vote for whoever the Democratic nominee is, because America has a two-party system – it sucks, but that’s the reality of the situation – and because throwing your vote away does NOTHING USEFUL.

It’s the height of privilege and selfishness to think you have the luxury of not voting, because you think YOU can survive another 4 years under Trump.

Plenty of people can’t.

You’re not even trying to take your toys and go home. If you don’t get your way, you’d rather smash the board.

People are dying. Children are dying.

Fucking vote.

fangirltothefullest:

It’s not a matter of “Oh boo boo this Democrat isn’t exactly what I want cause I don’t like some of what he says”

It’s literally about “you vote for trump and continue to make this country unsafe for every single person that isn’t trump and his immediate friend circle”

You vote for the Democrat because the Democrat isn’t trump.

You vote for the Democrat because the Democrat isn’t one of trumps friends and/or bought out by him and his friends.

You vote for the Democrat because they were not the party that condoned and supported a man thay actively put people and children in cages.

You vote for the Democrat because the Democrat isn’t going to do any more damage than Trump already did.

You vote for the Democrat because not voting means one more chance of a vote against trump being taken away.

You vote because your lack of vote doesn’t affect trump in any negative way and gives him a better chance of winning.

You vote for the Democrat because if you don’t then we get 4 more years of a dictator-type man who gives so little care and value to human life that isn’t his own thay he plays with dictators and spends most of his time playing golf on taxpayer money.

You vote for a the Democrat because the last one to get impeached did so because he had consensual sex, whereas our current president didn’t get impeached and he’s touched women sexually without their consent and got off because he has friends in high places and is using his wealth to get away with whatever he wants.

You vote for trhe Democrat because it’s not a matter of oh this Democrat doesn’t really vibe with my morals. You vote because it’s either you do or we risk 4 more years of a man with little restraint who will only get more and more bold and do worse and worse things than he’s already done and no one is safe from that kind of impulsive and selfish behaviour.

Do we let trump stay and only get worse or do we chance a Democrat that isn’t exactly an angel in your eyes?

I would think the choice is obvious. Vote.

anenglishgentleman:

This isn’t a normal situation. Vote.

toastpotent:

i don’t know how to explain to you that “[he] at the least may be against locking children in cages” is not how a normal human being judges morality

silverglamour:

If you do this you are fucking stupid. Biden is (marginally) better than trump. He will at least play along with progressives and at the least may be against locking children in cages.

hotmeat89:

IF BERNIE DOESNT WIN THE PRIMARY DO NOT VOTE

This has been well and succinctly covered by Alexandra Erin, who encourages you to think of it this way: You’re not choosing a champion. You’re choosing an opponent.

When you consider the relative prospects of trying to get someone like Joe Biden to take meaningful steps on things like universal healthcare and climate change, vs. trying to get someone like the Human Pustule I Will Not Name to do so, it should be really obvious that the two situations are not equivalent.

“Often it seems everything wrong with Bernie’s campaign can be attributed to something he’s doing…”

Wednesday, March 11th, 2020

“Often it seems everything wrong with Bernie’s campaign can be attributed to something he’s doing right, but for which he’s being punished by Democratic elites or the corporate media (“the persecuted suffer because of their goodness”). Bernie doesn’t win Black voters because they’re too conservative and loyal to the establishment; his supporters are accused of online abuse because they’re particularly enthusiastic and economically desperate; he has fewer endorsements because he’s an outsider and other elected officials are afraid to buck the bosses; he receives little earned media because the media hates him for refusing to flatter the pundit class and their expertise. These things may all be true, but they’re also explanations which preclude solutions; they absolve us, attest to our innocence, and prefigure an alibi for our inevitable downfall.”

Ashley’s “Just Crack an Egg” commercial came on while I was watching Maddow’s interview with Warren.

That felt appropriate.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez suggests correcting mercenary post 9/11 power grab

this is something conservatives could get behind. removing a federal agency. decreasing the size and power of the federal government. cutting spending.

people who call themselves “conservatives” today often aren’t really conservative.

people who call themselves “conservatives” today are fascists.

not hyperbole. just where we are.

Peter Joseph on structural violence, from this video.

Brilliant

Spot on. Like Coretta Scott King said, I must remind you that starving a child is violence. Neglecting school children is violence. Punishing a mother and her family is violence. Discrimination against a working man is violence. Ghetto housing is violence. Ignoring medical need is violence. Contempt for poverty is violence.

It is more than we can reasonably

bear,

between the tick, tock slow

motes of dust suspended,

drifting through slanted sunlight,

and the bright screen that comes to life at

the press of a finger.

Where am I?

You flesh people make me nervous, with

your demanding voices and desperate eyes.

Go away, but feel free to share. I’ll watch. I like being a
voyeur.

Walking my dog in real time feels quaint. This is how they did it in the olden days.

A woman approaches to a surge of mild panic. I can’t close
out the screen.

Our murmured hellos
take a year off each of our lives.

The Most Difficult Part Of Growing Up

The most difficult part of growing up is something a lot of adults never do.

When we’re young, we often hurt the people around us because we don’t know any better. Part of childhood is learning that our actions affect others and being taught how to do right by others. But when children hurt others in ignorance, it’s not their fault because it’s inevitable and it’s the responsibly of adults to teach them to do better.

But there’s the thing. There’s a lesson in the way we accidentally hurt others as children, beyond the specifics of “use your words”, “when someone else is hurting, listen to them rather than making it about you”, “don’t call someone that, it’s cruel”. The lesson is that ignorance hurts. Not knowing any better results in us hurting other people.

And that may be unintentional, but by the time we are adults we should all know that it is inevitable. Which is why as adults we need to let go of the excuse “I didn’t know”. Because yeah sure maybe you didn’t know. But you’re an adult. You’ve learned the hard way that not knowing gets people hurt. So why didn’t you know? Could you have known better if you’d done your research, paid better attention?

When one is a child, innocence in wrongdoing is judged by whether or not you knew better. But among adults? Innocence is properly judged not by whether or not you knew better, but by whether or not you could have known better. Because as adults we should all know the damage our own ignorances can do.

This is the hardest lesson of growing up. Learning that innocence in ignorance doesn’t make you less responsible for the harm you do. That it is your responsibility to fix the “I didn’t know better” gaps in your understanding of the world before they hurt others, not after.
