Jon Stewart and Matt Taibbi discuss the different treatment afforded to ‘street’ based drug users and white-collar criminals profiting from the drug trade.

The phantasmagorical and surreal animal sculptures by Canadian artist Ellen Jewett. Between dream and nightmare, some strange creations born of a symbiosis between organic and mechanical elements, a meeting between fantasy, gothic and steampunk. Some very detailed sculptures in clay on a metal frame.

'Colbert Report' posts racist tweet, ignites #CancelColbert firestorm

Colbert’s TV persona is a cartoonishly ignorant right-wing zealot, whom the comedian himself has called “an idiot.” Plenty of his jokes might be deemed offensive, but all told they usually serve the higher purpose of exposing the absurdity of contemporary politics.

This time, however, some say he’s crossed a line. This is not a new phenomenon in the world of comedy, where such criticism comes with the territory. But it also reminds people that good will towards edgy humor lasts only as long as the audience is laughing. When the room goes silent, it’s wise to cut your losses – just ask Kramer.

Seriously, as a ‘white liberal’, Colbert’s character is one of the best release valves I have to laugh at the insanity of those out there who aren’t playing a character (rather than crying about it, or getting irrationally angry at people being paid to be incindiary, racist assholes).

While I get that there are layers, and that some people may take some of those jokes at face value, those people are the punchline to a much larger portion of the audience, I think.

And even if you can’t forgive the racial humor, check out his segments and activism around campaign financing and SuperPACs.

why is it that were always told not to get tattoos at a young age because we “will regret it later on” when we are basically told to choose a career path by age 18? i’d rather be 40 years old with a tattoo that meant something to me when i was young than be 40 years old not wanting to get out of bed to go to a job that i hate because i was forced to decide on a career in my teens

Anonymous asked: Oh please. Capitalism: To each according to one’s own hard work. Read a book! :)


Oh, shit, you’re right… OH WAIT. What’s this…

Working poor? But I thought hard work always rendered wealth????? OMG LOOK AT THIS SHIT THOUGH.

More poor people in America have a job than not??? WHAAAAATT? But, graph, anon told me hard work yields wealth!

Well would you take a fucking look at this. Do you know what this means? Not only are all these hard workers poor (but hard work makes people rich????), but capitalism is also hella racist. Socialism and communism both give everyone the same opportunities, but why would we want that?! That would take white privilege out of the world of work. Equal opportunity for all colors? Fuck that, right? I prefer capitalism, where the class system and minimal regulation of business allows blatant discrimination in the work place.

I mean, surely the rich get rich by working hard and being honest. This is America, right?

Whoa! Excuse me, graph? Anon told me hard work yielded wealth??? This can’t be right! The actual workers of corporations bust their asses to make the profit for the corporations??? If this were the case, that would mean that CEOs *gasp* STEAL profit from workers???? WHAAAATTT?????

Hard work does not render wealth in a capitalist setting, or the term “working poor” wouldn’t exist. Look around you! :)
