That’s fucking cruel

This isn’t fucking funny. My mom has been a waitress almost all of my life and for most of it we lived off of scraps. She worked hard every damn day being paid less than minimum wage to help raise us four kids. All of our meals, all of our clothing, all of our school books, our fucking rent was always paid by tips. Some weeks were better than others but we learned how to make our dimes stretch and now she is doing better, with a manager position where things are more stable for her.
Bakc to the point, don’t any of you ever, EVER FUCKING DO THIS. SPREADING THE WORD OF YOUR RELIGION IS FINE AND DANDY BUT DON’T TO IT AT THE COST OF A SINGLE MOTHER NOT BEING ABLE TO FEED HERSELF SO HER KIDS CAN HAVE A PLACE TO SLEEP AT NIGHT.

When Christians act like little fucks

I have had online discussions with the people who think this is in any way okay, and boy, was that frustrating.

One of my friends had a lovely solution to the thing where people offer you things like this: Don’t unfold it, don’t even look at it, just put it in your pocket and thank them profusely, explaining how you didn’t know where your next meal was coming from and you’d been praying, and God must have heard them because now you can buy food for your kids.

OK OK IT’S FINE I’M GONNA BE FINE GONNA GET ALL THIS SPAIN STUFF DONE

As long as Congress will not increase wages for workers, I will go and talk to every business in America if I have to. There’s no denying a simple truth: America deserves a raise, and if you work full-time in this country, you shouldn’t live in poverty. That’s something that we all believe.

Now, here’s where it gets interesting. There are a number of Republicans, including a number in the Texas delegation, who are mad at me for taking these actions. They actually plan to sue me. Now, I don’t know which things they find most offensive — me helping to create jobs, or me raising wages, or me easing the student loan burdens, or me making sure women can find out whether they’re getting paid the same as men for doing the same job. I don’t know which of these actions really bug them.

The truth is, even with all the actions I’ve taken this year, I’m issuing executive orders at the lowest rate in more than 100 years. So it’s not clear how it is that Republicans didn’t seem to mind when President Bush took more executive actions than I did. Maybe it’s just me they don’t like. I don’t know. Maybe there’s some principle out there that I haven’t discerned, that I haven’t figure out. You hear some of them — “sue him,” “impeach him.” Really? Really? For what? You’re going to sue me for doing my job? Okay.

I mean, think about that. You’re going to use taxpayer money to sue me for doing my job — while you don’t do your job.

The Republicans are getting more absurd by the day. Did you know they are now talking about suing the President for delaying the employer mandate? That’s right—they’re suing the executive for failing to carry out a law that congressional Republicans have voted 54 times to repeal or weaken.

How is it a bit of a pun? I haven't heard of this before by Anonymous

pilferingapples:

A bit of a pun, because in French ‘Patrie’ is, basically, ‘fatherland’— but Enjolras is making it feminine in response to Bossuet’s teasing, because they are, actually, friends who get along and understand each other PRETTY WELL at this point— so Bossuet says Enjolras doesn’t have a mistress, and Enjolras —who ”did not seem to be listening”— pretty much goes “aaay don’t forget I got a heavy thing going with the ideal form of our homeland” and *that’s why Bossuet is still laughing* when the cannon pulls up, because Enjolras, you DORK, and also it’s ACTUALLY FUNNY, like wow, worlds of improvement over ‘take the pulse of the medical school’, Enjolras.

Enjolras of course just says the one word, quietly enough that people have to be nearby to hear him— like, you know, Bossuet is, and Courfeyrac is (other bits of dialogue and description in the chapter make it clear that they’re close enough to hear each other speaking normally even under the gunfire). It’s not for the whole barricade to hear, it’s a last joke between friends, and (arguably, I suppose, but why argue) one of the signs that Enjolras has actually been learning from his friends’ lighter sides as well as their ideals, and is in fact STILL listening to them:  even with death rolling their way, Enjolras makes one of his few non-grand-speech lines a joke, and it’s *Courfeyrac* who first calls out about the approaching cannon because they aren’t any of them working in isolation here, they’re all sharing in every aspect of this fight, from the jokes to the bullets, and no go away I’m not crying , you’re crying, wait no I’m definitely crying, WHO’S GUARDING THE BARRICADE.

This is one of my favorite Enjolras moments because it IS funny and silly and dumb and don’t hurt me with this meta ow

AAAUGH WHYYYYY.

(edit because alasse-irena is right about the place thing…FOR NOW dun dun duhhhn XD)

Well, my copy of Denny (the movie tie-in version) says on the back cover that “Les Misérables is a novel on an epic scale, moving inexorably from the eve of the battle of Waterloo to the July Revolution of 1830, [emphasis mine],” so it’s not like even The Brick is immune…

Well, yes. But that’s DENNY. :P

(and: SO CLOSE. SO CLOSE. WHY ONLY SO CLOSE AND NO FARTHER?!?)

I FOUND IT! I FOUND THE ANSWER!

Okay, maybe not the final answer, but part of the problem! Asks keep getting eaten. Which is a big problem when you’re doing something anon and don’t want to ask the person “did you get it”?

If the ask…

ALSO I think there needs to be spaces after periods in general! I tried to send an ask with my Skype id to a friend four times and it wouldn’t go through. I suspect it’s because tumblr’s link filter catches onto that and doesn’t send, but then again, it generally warns you when it thinks you’re sending a link. I am not a computer science person, idk. But I thought that might be useful.
