depressingly accurate… our sunset has no sun
Almost crashed when I passed by that sign yesterday. (Not the appropriate time for a double take)
idontknowaskhermione: It’s actually really disturbing that kids falling asleep in school is viewed as them being lazy and not as the school overworking them to the point that they literally can’t stay awake. really, your school worked you that hard? I feel asleep in class because I was bored. The class work was not challenging enough. I was never over-worked in school… not once.  (Source: fourchampions, via martinpaltrow)

infinityonline: 12,000 people in Florida have been rung up by republicans and told that voting is tomorrow and not today, so they’ll miss it and won’t be able to vote several people who look like democrats (i.e. blacks, Hispanics, women) lining up to vote in the swing states have been told by republicans that they need photo ID when they don’t several voting machines have been recorded showing that if you try to click on Obama, it selects Romney instead voter suppression at its finest  as someone who works at a polling place… let me tell you… IT IS USER ERROR… those machines are not sensitive (so lots of people poke real hard on the screen sliding their fingers over 2-3 candidates names at once), but hey lets blame the computers… the program is designed for you to REVIEW your ballot before casting it, and you can do it as many times as needed to get it to read correctly, and if it still doesn’t, there are poll workers trained to assist you, you do not have to cast a ballot on a machine if it is malfunctioning…  ALSO, how do you prove you are & where you live, without an ID, or birth certificate, or piece of mail or something… voting is done by county and TOO many people do not take the time to make sure they are in the right place. The President is not the only race on the ballot, there are local races, which you should NOT be voting on unless you live in the district. (via sarahh0ckey)

several voting machines have been recorded showing that if you try to click on Obama, it selects Romney instead

voter suppression at its finest 

as someone who works at a polling place… let me tell you… IT IS USER ERROR… those machines are not sensitive (so lots of people poke real hard on the screen sliding their fingers over 2-3 candidates names at once), but hey lets blame the computers… the program is designed for you to REVIEW your ballot before casting it, and you can do it as many times as needed to get it to read correctly, and if it still doesn’t, there are poll workers trained to assist you, you do not have to cast a ballot on a machine if it is malfunctioning…

samw-pmarleau: It’s not Mr. Obama, newscaster.  He’s still President. It is not Mr. Obama EVER again… any President deserves the respect of the title for the rest of his life (if you are real picky, you can always a a “former” for guys like Bush and Clinton)
