Lawyers for two Guantanamo Bay detainees cited the Hobby Lobby decision to argue for their clients’ rights to perform prayers during Ramadan. However, federal courts have argued that the detainees didn’t qualify as persons under the Religious Freedom Restoration Act. Wow.

WHAT HAVE YOU DONE

I know we all love Edna because she’s super fierce and determined and an awesome role model and shit but

do you ever think that she feels intensely guilty over this, having made this suit that lead to the death of this amazing young girl

Maybe there’s a reason she never looks back.

Repeated for emphasis:

Maybe there’s a reason she never looks back.

Actually studies consistently show that not only do black people use drugs less than white people, but a much higher percentage of white drug users are using very serious drugs (cocaine, heroin, etc) as opposed to just weed (which we really only give a shit about in the first place because of racism: http://io9.com/anti-marijuana-laws-were-based-on-racism-not-science-1500321449 )

"And how hard is it to land even a minimum-wage job? This year, the Ivy League college admissions acceptance rate was 8.9%. Last year, when Walmart opened its first store in Washington, D.C., there were more than 23,000 applications for 600 jobs, which resulted in an acceptance rate of 2.6%, making the big box store about twice as selective as Harvard and five times as choosy as Cornell. Telling unemployed people to get off their couches (or out of the cars they live in or the shelters where they sleep) and get a job makes as much sense as telling them to go study at Harvard."

phrases like “i’ll be the distraction you go on ahead without me” generally do not have a tendency to end well

"i’ll catch up with you" no. no you probably won’t

"we’ll talk about this later" there is no later

"it’ll be alright" not for you since you just said that and doomed yourself

"I’ll be fine. Don’t worry." We’ll never see you again.

"Claiming there is no other life in the universe is like scooping up some water, looking at the cup and claiming there are no whales in the ocean."
