this is my favorite post of all time
please be kind to retail employees this holiday season
that guy who’s sold out of the ps4 doesn’t need you making a scene- chances are you’re the fifth person to yell at him today
if nothing else, give your respect to people this Christmas. It could mean a world of difference to the people that don’t get paid enough to deal with the harassment I’ve seen
Slate, the masters of what-if journalism, write in a what-if style:
Six years into his rule, Obama’s position can appear confusing, even contradictory. Though the executive retains control of the country’s powerful intelligence service, capable of the extrajudicial execution of the regime’s opponents half a world away, the president’s efforts to govern domestically have been stymied in the legislature by an extremist rump faction of the main opposition party.
The current rebellion has been led by Sen. Ted Cruz, a young fundamentalist lawmaker from the restive Texas region, known in the past as a hotbed of separatist activity. Activity in the legislature ground to a halt last week for a full day as Cruz insisted on performing a time-honored American demonstration of stamina and self-denial, which involved speaking for 21 hours, quoting liberally from science fiction films and children’s books. The gesture drew wide media attention, though its political purpose was unclear to outsiders.
Everything about this. EVERYTHING.
