I kind of want to start tumblin’ again. But it’s been so long. Hmmmmmm.
Wait, is that a penis?
I think he’s literally being fucked.
I can honestly say I’ve never seen a horse penis before.
In another “isolated incident”.
You know, because we can’t call this what it is - terrorism.
Tumblr, he’s talking about you! [x]
Wait, selling a president to the public through viral marketing, like how we sell snack chips and soda isn’t the same old game? New venue, new marketing technique, same old Madison avenue hacks
Barack Obama is a brand. And the Obama brand is designed to make us feel good about our government while corporate overlords loot the Treasury, our elected officials continue to have their palms greased by armies of corporate lobbyists, our corporate media diverts us with gossip and trivia and our imperial wars expand in the Middle East. Brand Obama is about being happy consumers. We are entertained. We feel hopeful. We like our president. We believe he is like us. But like all branded products spun out from the manipulative world of corporate advertising, we are being duped into doing and supporting a lot of things that are not in our interest.
I absolutely agree that Obama is a brand. But what’s the current realistic alternative to this brand? What is the path to real change? What if the terrifying truth is that the majority of people in this country don’t really want change? I have to keep existing in this “lesser of two evils” system because there doesn’t appear to be another choice.
I was reading the FAQs on the 2012 Student Loan Forgiveness Act on Hansen Clarke’s website, and these two points stuck out:
- Would I still be eligible to enroll if my loans are in default?
Yes. Unlike the federal government’s program of Income Based Repayment (IBR), there is no requirement for the borrower to be current on his or her loans in order to qualify for enrollment in the new 10/10 program.
- What if I’ve already paid the equivalent of 10% of my discretionary income for at least 10 years?
Under the terms of this bill, those who have already paid the equivalent of at least 10% of their discretionary income over the prior 10 years totaling 120 payments would immediately qualify for forgiveness upon passage of the bill.
Guys, if this bill actually passes it would be huge. HUGE. I have no idea what its chances are, but this bill would have such an immediate and pervasive impact on people’s lives and the economy I just don’t understand why every democrat and non-asshat republican isn’t rallying behind it RIGHT NOW.

there are a LOT of butthurt white people in Queens who are heated about brown immigrants “taking over” areas traditionally associated with white Euro immigrants. There was an article in the Times a while back about a Key Food closing in Flushing (FLUSHING!!!!) and an Asian supermarket opening in the same space and oh my god the white tears flowed. like “WHERE WILL WE GET OUR PRECIOUS WHITE PEOPLE FOOD?!” I lol’d. Mainly cause I was all “wait there’s still white people in Flushing? When there isn’t a Mets game?”
I mean you’d think New York Crackerdom would be mostly confined to Staten Island but Queens is a hotbed for it in certain places, lol.
i was about to say the same thing about flushing cause…srsly? dere still white ppl in flushing?
Omg lmfao seriously, when I see a white person in Flushing I just be staring at em for a second so I can determine whether or not they’re lost bc
