‘let’s dance’ art print in silver by threechordprint
i actually found this etsy gem as a gift for the seniors and captains on the dance team i help coach. they love it for the metallic silver and dance reference … but i love it because it’s inspired by the great artist david bowie. i want one!!
this is why i am pro-choice.
if you have an extra ten minutes, i suggest watching this heart-wrenching video… because this is the story of a real woman facing a real decision with her real family. this is not the fabricated myth of an irresponsible woman choosing abortion out of convenience that anti-choice legislators and activists want you to believe so they can further restrict women’s reproductive choices.
i am pro-choice because i cannot fathom thinking that i have the right to tell people like these that my decisions and beliefs are morally and ethically superior to intensely personal and difficult decisions they make together, and with their doctor.
Danielle and Robb’s Story (by PPHeartland)
DON’T TEASE ME, PEOPLE.
Something is happening the world of The West Wing today.
Josh Malina and Dule Hill joked on Twitter that it’s a movie. But come on. Hmmm.
The critics Manohla Dargis and A. O. Scott examine the complex, and at times contradictory, character of Katniss Everdeen, the hero of “The Hunger Games.”
"Ronald Reagan, who, as I recall, is not accused of being a tax-and-spend socialist, understood repeatedly that when the deficit started to get out of control, that for him to make a deal he would have to propose both spending cuts and tax increases. Did it multiple times. He could not get through a Republican primary today. […]
Cap and trade was originally proposed by conservatives and Republicans as a market-based solution to solving environmental problems. The first President to talk about cap and trade was George H.W. Bush. Now you’ve got the other party essentially saying we shouldn’t even be thinking about environmental protection; let’s gut the EPA.
"Health care, which is in the news right now — there’s a reason why there’s a little bit of confusion in the Republican primary about health care and the individual mandate since it originated as a conservative idea to preserve the private marketplace in health care while still assuring that everybody got covered, in contrast to a single-payer plan. Now, suddenly, this is some socialist overreach.
"So as all of you are doing your reporting, I think it’s important to remember that the positions I’m taking now on the budget and a host of other issues, if we had been having this discussion 20 years ago, or even 15 years ago, would have been considered squarely centrist positions. What’s changed is the center of the Republican Party.""
