I’m going to take a few minutes to talk about a few things off the top of my head:
Endangered Rivers. I have no doubt that at some point in this country’s history we will literally be fighting over water. Right now it’s more or less a joke that Georgia is going to try to gerrymander their way into a piece of the Tennessee River, but it’s only a matter of time before it’s all the way live. Read and take heed of Octavia Butler’s Parable stories if you don’t believe me.
Tyler Perry. I’m not going to spend too much time on this one because frankly I’m tired of arguing this point with black folk. Fortunately, Gina over at What About Our Daughters has already covered this particular bit of Mammified coonery.
Thank you Vermont and Iowa for restoring my faith in the humanity (and sanity) of my fellow Americans. This shit is unconstitutional people, grow up and deal with it. Come on Maine, New Hampshire and New Jersey. Apparently we’ll have to join the rest of Western Civilization one state at a time. And just what do we have to do to vote Utah out of the Union altogether? I say we boot those The Handmaiden’s Tale mofos and make D.C. the 50th state. Sure our border would look a little strange, but hell Spain and Portugal seem okay with sharing the Iberian Peninsula, we’ll just have to make do.
This picture makes me cry. Of course during Midol month pretty much anything can make me cry, but I need my mama so much right now I wonder if I’ll get through.
