A brilliant metaphor
Congratulations, you all are twelve!
Being a man is like being a dog. We are expected to be strong and loyal to earn our keep. Women are like cats. They aren’t really expected to do anything. If they choose to be productive, cool, but no one requires them to do anything.
Dogs are seen as violent and stupid while cats are smart and elegant. When they get into a fight, the dog is always seen as the aggressor, even though cats can absolutely be violent and irrational. Doesn’t matter if the cat started it or not, cause in the end, the dog will be punished and the cat will be cuddled.
Dogs are expected to do the dangerous jobs like herding and police work. Cats, at most, are expected to be cute and nap.
People automatically assume that dogs are dangerous, but have no problem going up to pet a strange cat. Dogs are more likely to be put down for attacking a person than a cat. As in more likely to be punished for the same crime.
Don’t make stupid comparisons about people if you aren’t ready to have them thrown right back in your face.
^Now THAT’S a brilliant metaphor.
After June’s $70 billion budget surplus, you’d think that the right would be ecstatic that the deficit has been reduced so much.
YOU WOULD THINK. From the article: “the CBO says the entire deficit for 2014 will “only” be $492 billion. That’s down from the over the $1.4 trillion deficit Bush left when Obama took office in 2009.”
I think it’s time for us to collectively admit that Obama could reduce the deficit by two thirds, set new record highs for the Dow and the S&P, and facilitate 52 straight months of job growth (to the tune of nearly 10 million private-sector jobs) and Republicans STILL wouldn’t be happy.
And we know that, because he did all of those things, and they still aren’t happy.
Sure, he left a huge debt. We also still had out AAA credit rating. We were also on the way out of Afghanistan and the other desert areas from combat.
We now have a 9+ trillion deficit and barely an A credit. We’ve now gone back into Afghanistan for combat.
This is what your imperialistic president has done.

If the multiverse theory is true, then there’s a universe where it isn’t.
Multiverse theory doesn’t cover paradoxical situations

This man is far more intelligent than many people give him credit for.
comedians generally are.
Most topical comics are incredibly intelligent and wise. We just laugh because we don’t want to see the truth.
Malaysian artist Monica Lee draws amazingly photo-realistic images with graphite pencils.
How are these drawings?!
If you look at the world and say “Yes, there are enough homes for people, yes, there is enough food for people, but if we give it away for free they won’t have earned it and the economy will collapse.” Then you have chosen money (a constructed medium of exchange) over living beings who only want to continue living in peace and safety.
And I have no qualms telling you, that is the wrong choice, and you have been brainwashed by this destructive, exploitative system.
Daily FUCKING reminder
DONT FUCKING DRIVE DRUNK YOU ASSHOLES WHY ARE YOU ALL SO FUCKING STUPID
Strength is being able to crush a tomato.
Dexterity is being able to dodge a tomato.
Constitution is being able to eat a bad tomato.
Intelligence is knowing a tomato is a fruit.
Wisdom is knowing not to put a tomato in a fruit salad.
Charisma is being able to sell a tomato based fruit salad.
