THIS WILL BE MY HOUSE
For those who’ve left messages in my ask box about club pins, they’re finally back in stock.
It took a lot of searching to find a manufacturer who could produce them at the same quality (metal and enamel, none of that cheap plastic crap) for roughly the same price as the originals. Quality pins achieved!
They’re available individually here.
And included as part of a package dealy here.
ALL OF MY WANTS
ahugestepback.com — First, it was the health care battle. Then it was the budget battle. Now, anti-choice lawmakers are trying to deny women insurance for abortion and allow hospitals to let women die. Where does this lead? Where will it end?
Are you fucking scared? Because I am. These are the men making decisions for us.

I’d heard some Bank of America employees were threatening customers with increased credit card interest rates if they closed their checking accounts, so I consulted my friend who works closely with the BoA credit card department to get the scoop firsthand:

Fright Fest 2011: Mom’s Gold Star Edition
Today’s Gold Star submission comes from a reader whose Halloween costume in 2010 consisted of what you see above. Technically it’s the alien lizard baby from the classic “V” miniseries (which I have not seen but looks crazy scary for a TV series…ah, the ’80s!), so that helps explain her husband’s equally awesome reptilian alien costume. (I kind of NEED to own that freaky mask!)
Elizabeth, the now-mom featured in the picture, isn’t just winning this week’s Gold Star for her frightfully appropriate costume, though; she’s also winning because I enjoyed what she said in her email. She wrote:
“This photo is of myself…I am guilty of posting “belly” photos on Facebook, but I sure tried to at least make it interesting. You can use it in your Fright Fest if you like it.”
Way to prove a point, Elizabeth! I know I requested no naked belly shots on Facebook in my round-up yesterday, but I should really revise that to say “no naked belly shots unless they resemble this horrifying alien lizard baby costume.” It sort of puts you in a trance, right? Can’t…stop…staring… Must…look…away…
Congrats on your Gold Star, Elizabeth! I only hope this year’s family costumes are equally as terrifying. (And if they are, don’t be shy about sending along more pics!)
PS: Stay tuned for more “scary maternity pics” next week!

If I’m ever pregnant during Halloween, I am so doing something like this. Muahahaha…my mother will hate it. XD

So, here is how it goes. First, the state passes a harsh immigration law. Then, it detains large numbers of immigrants. Third, private prisons (LCS, CCA, GEO) receive fresh inmates. And finally, the artificially created labor shortage is supplied by the new inmates. Does this sound like modern-day slavery to anyone?
The rest of the country can only look in shock and dismay, as once again, Alabama, a state renowned for its historical role in racism, segregation and slavery, leads the nation into another round of shame.
so, let me get this straight
they come, they work, get paid chicken shit
they get arrested, put into private prisons, forced to do the same kind of work they were doing, only now they dont get paid and they’re in shackles?
sounds like it to me
This is exactly how Black people were re-enslaved after emancipation. EXACTLY.
Rachel Maddow schools Mitt Romney in her man cave on how babies are made and how birth control prevents that because clearly he missed health class thirty years ago, or he’s too busy with the pursuit of his ego to to think about something that affects 51% of the people he “wants” to represent
This is beautiful.
I just need to say that I love her.
Rachel Maddow, can I have your lady-babies?
