“Brisenia Flores, the nine year old girl who was murdered in Arizona, shot by a group of pseudo-vigilantes who forced their way into her home looking to steal drug money that was to be used to finance a citizen border protection organization. They killed her father, wounded her mother and then killed the nine year old for reasons that still make no sense. Basically, it was a group of anti-immigrants who killed a little Latina girl to pay for their anti-immigrant activities. Perfect fodder for Grace and her ilk, no? In fact, the third and last defendant in the Brisenia Flores murder trial, Albert Gaxiola, was being tried at the same time as Casey Anthony. But not a peep in the media. This isn’t to diminish what happened to little Caylee Anthony. It is a horrible crime that has yet to be solved. But the story quickly went from being sad to being a side-show – amplified by the 24 hour news wheel and the instant Internet repost cycle. We talked about it, we tweeted about it, we linked to it on FaceBook.”

So here’s how my math class works

jagsrox:

What we learn in class:

1 + 1

Homework:

-55x + 47x

Test:

39048240x^2(3454x + 84) + 8343x(x - 454)(354 - x)

only one variable? you’ve got to be kidding me.

A quite illuminating post from Mother Jones. Apparently, a good deal of the recent crazy talk from the far-right of the GOP (i.e., it’s leadership) is based in the teachings of an amateur historian from Texas (of course). He’s teaching them, among other things, that the Founding Fathers debated evolution vs. creationism, and ended up siding with creationism.

Funny, then, that Darwin wasn’t even born until 1809, and didn’t write the Origin of the Species until 1859. As MoJo notes, those Founding Fathers had to be pretty prescient to debate a theory in 1776 that wasn’t fully formed until they were all long dead.

GOP’s favorite historian: Founding Fathers opposed Darwin, even though Darwin not born yet. (The FF used leeches too.)

I totally did not catch that before when I reblogged that video. That being said,

AHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Well, someone got caught with their pants down pulling facts out of their ass, didn’t they?

Hey, since you’re for abortion and all I’m just gonna go back in time and tell your mom you’re all for it. Sound good?

an-ominous-atheist:

sonic-hip-attack:

But then my mom has an abortion and then I never exist, so I never had a chance to form an opinion about abortion, so you never would have gone back in time to tell my non-mother anything.

Paradox’d.

Also, this argument is hilarious.  Thinking abortion should be legal and a viable choice for people who need it does NOT mean you prescribe abortion for every pregnant person. And why would my mom care about my political views?  

This is just as relevant as going back in time and telling my mom that I support same sex marriage.  That means she’d immediately dump my dad and get into a lesbian relationship, right?  Except for how she’s not attracted to women and you’re a dumbass.

I would like this post but I don’t want the insanely idiotic OP to think I approve of her stupid message, so I’ll just reblog it instead. 

Edit: Oh god it’s a he, even worse.

“Pawlenty’s economic plan, presented yesterday, is to enact tax cuts three times larger than Bush’s. When one realizes that he is regarded as one of the more serious candidates, one wonders if the Republican degeneracy is actually intensifying. In this period of massive debt, Pawlenty’s position is to gut revenues even more - and balance them with spending cuts that could never overcome massive public resistance. Is it still GOP orthodoxy that the answer to any economic problem - even a collapse in federal revenue - is cutting taxes? The mind reels. Look: you simply cannot be in favor of debt reduction and massive tax cuts - on top of Bush’s bankrupting decade - at the same time.” Andrew Sullivan, “The Profound Unseriousness of Tim Pawlenty” (via technipol)
