A libertarian blog, this is a political and philosophical one first. I may post the things I find beautiful or fulfilling. I enjoy art and spiritualism as well, but this blog is primarily about the awakening and enlightenment of the civic thinker. Enjoy!
There’s a shooting at an airport and a TSA agent dies. Afterwards, people call for arming TSA agents and it is applauded as “a sensible response to a tragedy.”
There is a shooting in a school and children die. The NRA calls for armed security in schools and everyone calls them crazy.
I sense BS here.
this is america’s new spy satellite that went up over the weekend
lmao holy fuck
ah, america finally embraces the cartoon villain aesthetic to match its unashamedly evil foreign policies since forever
wow, now i’m mad i fell for this one….
No way you thought it was real! As soon as I saw it I could tell it was fake, and I’m old and blind! lol So many real couples out there and some idiot does this, pathetic.
Omg tumblr, do something, the fake pic post has over 64,000 notes, those blogs should rectify by posting this one too.
important harajuku fashion
i love how like
english-speaking people wear east-asian words on their clothes because they can’t read it naturally and it “looks cool”
and east-asian people do the Same Exact Thing with English words
it’s so great
it is awesome
Last night, I read someone write that supply and demand are made up and aren’t actually real concepts. Talking about unemployment because of a price floor is “huge assumption founding on nothing.”
Lord help us.
The biggest shock of Paris’s spring-summer 2014 fashion shows came on the otherwise calm and gentle Nina Ricci catwalk, when two topless activists from protest group Femen crashed the podium.
Grabbing a startled model making her way down the catwalk, they screamed “fashion fascism,” with words decrying the sexualization of the modeling industry written in make-up. One had “Fashion dictaterror” scrawled on her naked torso, the other “Model don’t go to brothel.”
One British model, Liverpool-born Hollie-May Saker, was caught in the middle, with the protesters brushing against her lamé-and-lace skirt.
“The next thing I just see half-naked women with black marker pen scrawled across their bare chests and that’s when she came at me….As she grabbed my arm she lifted my skirt exposing me – I pulled my arm back with such force that I landed a punch square on her nose,” Saker told the Echo.

So, to fight back against the sexualization of the modeling industry, these women assaulted a model and forcibly exposed her?
Protip: You’re not fighting a patriarchal system by assaulting women and exposing them against their will.
I have literally never heard of a positive thing done by Femen. Seriously. They need to stop. First the blatant Islamophobia, and now this? Really?
If your idea of feminism includes racist bullshit and attacking women who don’t conform to your exact image of a feminist, guess what? You’re a complete asshole and you’re misrepresenting feminism as a whole.
I *hate* Femen. Literally they are the reason feminism is viewed in a bad light. They’re the West Borough Baptist of feminism and I can’t stand it.
wasn’t it discovered earlier this year that FEMEN is run entirely by some rich israeli dude who required women to submit topless ‘audition’ photos before they can officially become a member
im pretty sure it’s not an actual feminist organization at all it’s really fucked up
white feminism bankrolled and controlled by old rich white dudes
Yo I’ve reblogged this before but the article linked above is so crazy important it’s not even funny.
Administration, we can all rest a little bit easier tonight. Yesterday at approximately 17:00 hours, a one Mr. Rooster Monkburn was successfully disarmed when a TSA agent confiscated the monkey sock puppet’s two-inch, vaguely gun-shaped piece of plastic—and then threatened to call the police.
The offending accessory.
It all started when Phyllis May of Redmond, Washington attempted to smuggle the stuffed, armed primate through security on her way from St. Louis to Seattle. Immediately identifying the threat, the agents on duty stepped into action and pulled Mr. Monkburn’s carrying case from the conveyor. The jig, it seems, was up. “I realized, oh my god, this is my bag,” May told KTVB-TV.The exchange that then took placewas—and this cannot be emphasized enough—absolutely phenomenal:
May said the TSA agent went through the bag, through the sewing supplies and found the two-inch long pistol.
"She said ‘this is a gun,’" said May. "I said no, it’s not a gun it’s a prop for my monkey."
"She said ‘If I held it up to your neck, you wouldn’t know if it was real or not,’ and I said ‘really?’" said May.
The TSA agent told May she would have to confiscate the tiny gun and was supposed to call the police.
"I said well go ahead," said May. "And I said really? You’re kidding me right, and she said no it looks like a gun."
"She took my monkey’s gun."
Let’s hear that one more time.
I said no, it’s not a gun it’s a prop for my monkey.
And with that, we celebrate one more victory for freedom.
TSA Security Theater.
Looking out for you.
