For all you tattoo bashers out there.
Tattoos don’t make the character. Learn people. Learn.
The previous generations really did a number on us when it comes to tattoos. They made us believe that tattoos are unprofessional and unsightly, when, really, tattoos and body art have existed through pretty much the entirety of human history. Tattoos, unless they are of an offensive nature, are not any more unprofessional than make-up, or jewelry, etc.
I remember one time I was asked by a friend who is a manager if she should hire a guy with tattoos. My first question to her was about how qualified the guy was for the position, and she explained he was very qualified.
Her: “If you went to a store to buy something, would it bother you if the person helping you had tattoos?”
Me: “As long as he does his job properly and helps me when I need it, he could be wearing a Halloween costume for all I care.”
Please read this. America is fucked in all ways but the good kind if Romney wins and my sweeties who are not in college yet will have a fucking hard time staying in college what with the raised tuitions, costs of living and supplies, and like when I was in college how many people had to drop out since their parents could no longer afford to keep their kid in school, it’s going to be even worse under Romney. And you think it’s fucking hell trying to get a job now as a recent graduate (which it is- I think the majority of my graduating class is still unemployed) just wait until you’re looking for a job in Romney’s USA. I don’t wish that stress on anyone. Among many issues that I firmly believe Romney would create and or exacerbate, the recession is one that is affecting me for the first time now that I’m on my own, and I simply cannot afford to keep living in this country if Romney is elected. Thank god Obama care extended the health insurance coverage to 26 years old, if I got really sick right now and had to go to the hospital now I couldn’t afford to pay the bill because I can’t afford insurance for myself yet. It’s easy for young adults just entering college to not get the severity of voting and of politics, but I urge you to think for your inevitable future and realize that you are going to be on your own sooner than you think and you don’t deserve to HAVE to live with mom and dad for a year after you graduate, making them keep supporting you and you stalling your awesome, adventurous free adult life because you’re not getting hired anywhere even though you’re amazing and hard working and have a super resume. It is fucking hard these days for post-grads, I see it and I live it, and I am genuinely scared for future post-grads if Romney is running this country for the next 4 years. Entry level jobs will be even scarcer and the cost of living and materials which I use in my art and work will be even higher than they are now. I don’t vote for Obama come election day, I have no fucking business complaining about my life and I deserve to shut up and suffer for it.
Fuck yeah, nuns.
BOOM! Thank you! I don’t understand people who are pro-life but against social welfare programs and gay adoption. It’s kind of infuriating that they claim to be pro-life but take absolutely no responsibility for the welfare of the baby born; if you force people to have children they don’t want, be ready to foot the bill in case the parents bail out on them, because it’s going to happen.
Agreed. Mike Huckabee said it best. Being pro-life means pro LIFE. That means protecting, nurturing, and helping children. I’ve always supported putting investment into better education, welfare programs for children, and laws to always keep them safe.
However to assume because the GOP doesn’t support lifetime welfare for the crack addict down the street means they don’t support it for children is off base. I don’t think the GOP has ever tried to cut programs for children.
The thing is, she doesn’t mention the GOP. I don’t think it has anything to do with party politics, to be honest. She’s just basically calling out people, in general, on their hypocrisy when they claim to be “pro-life” but turn around and don’t think they have to take responsibility for the babies born. Not everyone who is pro-life believes this, obviously, and not everyone who is pro-life is a Republican or even a conservative. My mom is staunchly pro-life, but she is a Democrat and a liberal.
Ultimately, regardless of party affiliations, I just take issue with people who say that they are trying to protect the life of the unborn child and then forget the child exists after he or she is born. It doesn’t work that way. I’m pro-choice, personally, but I can sort of see the argument from both sides (it all comes down to arbitrarily placing a value on “life” from both sides). I just always think that being pro-life comes with some really huge responsibilities, and it’s frustrating when these responsibilities get ignored.
“Over the past four years, we’ve doubled the amount of electricity America can generate from wind—from 25 gigawatts to 50 gigawatts. And to put that in perspective, that’s like building 12 new Hoover Dams that are powering homes all across the country. We doubled the amount of electricity we generate from solar energy, too. And combined, these energy sources are enough power to make sure that 13 million homes have reliable power and support the paychecks that help more than 100,000 Americans provide for their families.
“That’s not imaginary. That is real. And that’s what’s at stake in November. Thirty-seven thousand American jobs are on the line if the wind energy tax credit is allowed to expire like my opponent thinks they should. And unlike Gov. Romney, I want to stop giving $4 billion in taxpayer subsidies to big oil companies that have rarely been more profitable so that we can keep investing in homegrown energy sources like wind that have never been more promising. That’s part of the choice in this election.”
