quote What did liberals do that was so offensive to the Republican Party? I’ll tell you what they did. Liberals got women the right to vote. Liberals got African-Americans the right to vote. Liberals created Social Security and lifted millions of elderly people out of poverty. Liberals ended segregation. Liberals passed the Civil Rights Act, the Voting Rights Act. Liberals created Medicare. Liberals passed the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act. What did Conservatives do? They opposed them on every one of those things, every one. So when you try to hurl that label at my feet, ‘Liberal,’ as if it were something to be ashamed of, something dirty, something to run away from, it won’t work, Senator, because I will pick up that label and I will wear it as a badge of honor.

*wipes tear*  Were that a President Santos were a reality…  (C’mon Julian Castro…) 

(via thepoliticalb)

This is how I will ALWAYS feel about the word “Liberal.”

Anonymous: I agree with applepiesfromscratch, I think your rage is misdirected to the president instead the military force. In a way that might threaten his life and family (considering whta happened in history with Kennedy) , since he’s the president. So I’d say that being a president now days…

Some of us see a man of moral courage making difficult, unavoidable decisions to change the system from within, the only way it can be changed without resorting to violent anarchy. We are not numb, we are not uninformed, and we don’t think drone strikes are wonderful. Neither does the president. Of course you’re entitled to your opinion, and I thank you for your blog.

quote Barack Obama was born in Hawaii. The unemployment rate is below eight percent. The day after the Benghazi attack the President called it an ‘act of terror.’ Do whatever you need to do to make yourself feel better, but do not confuse your World Net Daily-caliber, therapeutic, conservative, alternative-reality, fantasy babble for what actually happened. Because stuff really does actually happen. And eventually you really do have to deal with it.

Rachel Maddow (via alittlecoconuttart)

I saw her deliver this statement.  It was beautiful.

  • Michelle Obama: I think our schools should provide healther food or at least healthier alternatives for our children during lunch.
  • Republicans: WHAT THE FUCK? MICHELLE OBAMA IS TRYING TO CONTROL HOW OUR CHILDREN EAT? WHO IS SHE TO TELL US WHAT WE CAN AND CANNOT FEED OUR CHILDREN?!? WE DON'T WANT A GOVERNMENT THAT TRIES TO CONTROL US!
  • Barack Obama: I believe health care is a fundamental right. I want to reform the health care system and make it mandatory and/or possible for each American to have health insurance.
  • Republicans: WHAT THE FUCK? WHO DOES BARACK OBAMA THINK HE IS TRYING TO MAKE US GET HEALTH INSURANCE? WE DON'T WANT A GOVERNMENT THAT TRIES TO CONTROL ITS CITIZENS. SMALL GOVERNMENT FTW!
  • Pregnant woman: I'd like to have an abortion.
  • Working woman: I'd like for my job insurance to cover my contraception.
  • Gay couple: We'd like to get married.
  • Republicans: NO!!! FUCK NO!!! ARE YOU INSANE? YOU'RE NOT ALLOWED TO HAVE AN ABORTION, YOU MURDERER, AND YOU'RE NOT ENTITLED TO CONTRACEPTION, YOU SLUT, AND YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO GET MARRIED, YOU DEGENERATE HOMOSEXUALS. THE BIBLE STATES THAT WE ARE ALLOWED TO CONTROL EVERYONE ACCORDING TO OUR BELIEFS. WE ARE ALLOWED TO CONTROL THE CITIZENS AND INTERFERE IN THEIR PERSONAL LIVES!! FUCK YOUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU!!
