“Each time Republicans ratchet up their efforts to delay or defund the ACA instead of focusing on what should be their No. 1 priority — strengthening our economic recovery and creating jobs — they suffer.”—Pollster warns GOP: Oppose Obamacare at your own risk. (via think-progress)
“if we get to Oct. 17 and the Repubs are still holding the nation hostage, the President has only one option: He must ignore the debt ceiling and order the Treasury to continue to pay all the nation’s bills. He should rely on Section four of the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution, which says the ‘validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law…shall not be questioned’…”—Robert Reich, at Guernica (via thesmithian)
“He may still love you. He probably does. He probably doesn’t know what he wants. He probably still thinks about you all the time. But that isn’t what matters. What matters is what he’s doing about it, and what he’s doing about it is nothing. And if he’s doing nothing, you most certainly shouldn’t do anything. You need someone who goes out of their way to make it obvious that they want you in their life.”—(via thatwassexual)

Yeah, this totally supports my thoughts of Martin being way more innocent than a lot of media has allowed to portray. Zimmerman is obviously a VIOLENT individual. smh.
Ahahaha. Either way, if you’re on the ground with the back of your head being opened up, you can indeed defend yourself.
The police let him go at first because it was clear there was no case. And guess what - after thousands of dollars later and a lot of wasted time, he’s still innocent.
MEANWHILE PEOPLE ARE STILL TALKING ABOUT THIS WHILE SYRIA IS BEING IGNORED
It’s all bullshit. Zimmerman still murdered a child.
Syria is on the news (BBC / AlJeezera etc) 24/7. People who aren’t total idiots should know that Assad is ruthless and needs to be stopped, but not in the sake of our [U.S] tax $$ and military. Our soldiers really don’t want to go in. So, Syria is bullshit too. —- (my opinion is that America is too torn itself, currently, to do any type of invasion. so, *I* think the war should not begin)
