Sometimes everything is SO AWFUL
I can hardly stand it. I forgot to do some online commenting for this one class, thinking it was just part of my 10% participation grade and it turns out it is 20% of the total grade, which, I think I naturally blocked out where acting like a Freeper would be worth 20% of a grade for a class which is truly amazing in all other respects. (it would also make it like every other class) One kid in...
How Has It Come to This?
politicalprof: Kim Kardashian was at the annual correspondents’ day dinner? For what, exactly? What, exactly, has Kim Kardashian actually ever done that is DC-fat cat dinner worthy? Venting over. Sick taste in mouth remains. she was a guest of Fox News (I believe). the shouts for the outright destruction of this event in order to preserve the sanctity of journalistic integrity are loud. the...

What nobody else will tell you about the U.S. F-22... →
The news that multiple F-22 stealth fighters were deployed “near Iran” has already been reported by the most important media outlets all around the world. However, nobody has been able to provide some important details that could be useful to better understand the scope of this overseas deployment: when did the Raptors deploy? How many aircraft were deployed? Where? And, above all, are those...
bthny: Why should the poors be allowed to use my hard-earned money to buy their daughters slutty dresses for prom when I didn’t even go to prom!! that article and section was put on my facebook by one of my republican “friends.” one of the nice ones though, one who doesn’t want actual people burned alive in their tenements. the comments are tame so far.
You paid how much for prom? →
But the statistic that Visa describes as “troubling” is how prom spending differs by family income. In general, the lower the income bracket, the more Americans are likely to spend on prom. For parents who make more than $75,000 a year, for example, prom spending averages about $850. For those making between $20,000 and $29,999, average prom spending leaps to $2,635 – the most of any income...

warrennotg: Osama Bin Laden is dead and President Barack Obama authroized the mission that killed him, sooo Barack Obama gets to talk about it. If the mission had failed, you BEST BELIEVE the Republicans would be setting their Rupert Murdoch hair on fire. It’s almost as if, when the man does something that most people liked, Republicans don’t want him talking about it. Shocking! no

The South, the War and ‘Christian Slavery’ →
But beginning in the spring of 1862 and continuing even past the end of the war, the theological significance of “Christian slavery” changed. Southern pastors and theologians combined a providential view of history with their understanding of what was biblically required of slaveholders to conclude that widespread failure to engage in “Christian slavery” was a main cause of divine favor’s being...
They call it Nerd Prom, which is not remotely accurate. Political journalists,...– @pareene. I’ll say again: it’s actually kind of a serious problem when important reporters don’t understand things like marginal tax rates. (via dceiver)
pantslessprogressive: “There’s a lot of anger, but people don’t know what they’re angry about. You know, from the end of the Vietnam War all the way up to 9/11, for the most part everyone was fat, dumb and happy. Then 9/11 happened and shattered all that. People became scared and anxious and out of control. They’d go to Wal-Mart and realize that everything they’ve been buying says ‘Made in...
