Aladdin, Barbie, and Batman: feynites.tumblr.com minesottafatspoollegend i love in fantasy when its like "king galamir the mighty golden eagle and his most trusted advisor who would never betray him, gruelworm bloodeye the treacherous When my sister and I were kids we had this one action figure, who was actually a brutalized batman doll without his cape (the dog chewed half his head, too), who we dubbed 'Evil Chancellor Traytor'. The idea was that in the fictional society of our toys, 'chancellor' just came with the word ‘evil, in front of it, as a matter of ancient tradition. Like grand, or high, or something along those lines Anyway, the running gag was that the king (an old Power Rangers knock-off doll) had absolute and unwavering faith in Evil Chancellor Traytor, who basically comported himself like a mix between Grima Wormtongue and Jafar from the Aladdin movies. Everyone was always sure that Evil Chancellor Traytor had something to do with the nefarious scheme of the day. The dude even carried around a poisoned knife called 'the kingslayer The additional twist on the joke, though, was that he never was behind anything. The king was actually right. Evil Chancellor Traytor was the most devoted civil servant in the entire Action Figure Dystopia. He spent his nights working on writing up new legislature to ensure that broken toys had access to mobility devices, was always on the lookout to acquire new shoeboxes for expanding city infrastructure, and drafted a proposal that once got half the 'settlement' in my sister and I's closet moved to the upper shelf so that vulnerable toys were less likely to be snatched up by the dog The knife, as it turned out, was as symbolic as the 'evi in his name. See, Action Figure Dystopia had a long history of corrupted monarchs getting too big for their thrones and exploiting the underclasses. The job of the Evil Chancellor was to always remain vigilant, and loyally serve a good ruler or, if the regent should became a despot, to slay them on behalf of the people But since killing the king would be a terrible crime, the Evil Chancellor had to be the kind of person who would willingly die to spare the people from the plight of a wicked leader because the murder would be pinned on them, in order to keep the 'machinery of politics working as smoothly as ever Anyway, Evil Chancellor Traytor had a diary, in which my sister I would take turns writing out the most over-the-top good shit he'd done behind the scenes. Usually after everyone else had finished talking shit about him. I don't know why but we got the biggest kick out of being like Barbie With the Unfortunate Haircut: Oh that Evil Chancellor Traytor! Why can't the king see how wicked he is?! Charmander From the Vending Machine: Char! Jurassic Park Toy of Jeff Goldblum With Disturbingly Realistic Face: At least if someone puts a knife in the king's back, we'll know where to look! Evil Chancellor Traytor's Diary: Today I was feeding ducks at the park when I noticed another legless action figure sitting by the benches. I put a hundred dollars into his bag while he wasn't looking. I really need to increase budgeting to the medical treatment centers. If only we had enough glue, I think we would see far fewer toys trying to get by without limbs insert iconic evil laugh Anyway, Evil Chancellor Traytor eventually fell victim to one of my mom's cleaning sprees and she decided he was too busted up to keep and tossed him out. My littler brother, who tended to follow my sister and I's games like he was watching a daily soap opera, cried so hard that we had to do a special 'episode' where one of the toys found the Evil Chancellor's diary, and so he got a big huge memorial and the king threw himself into the empty grave and then ordered the toys driving the toy bulldozer to bury him so that Traytor's grave would have a body' (this seemed very important for some reason) And then we had the Quest For a New King. Somehow or another that ended up being a giant rubber snake called Tyrant King Cobra (via besiderunningwaters) #my apologies for rambling #but it has been a long time since i thought about traytor #and that suddenly reminded me of him H APR 201 SOURCE SWEETBABYRAYSGOURMETSAUCES 78,236 NOTES The Unforgettable Tale of Evil Chancellor Traytor

Anaconda, Club, and College: iPad 18:43 Q Search for people, places and things I have an IQ of 196 and am seeking a roommate of my same mental capacity with whom l can engage in casual conversations about quantunm mechanics and theoretical astrophysics. I am smarter than 99% of the people l encounter, however, being as insanely smart as I am can be quite a burden. For instance, I can never win arguments because the reason I'm right is too complex to explain within the attention span of my opponent. Alas, nobody understands my plight. I often stay up at night reading Chaucer and contemplating the repercussions of false philosophy. I love astounding everybody in the library by finishing a 419 page novel in just under 100 minutes. I am also a passionate artist and musician. Just earlier I heard a door squeak a melodic minor 7th, something only a true musician would realize. Last night I wrote a poem while in a club. Of course l of all people would stop dancing in the middle of a dance floor at 11:30 at night and start to ponder about the decay of our society. How disquieting the institution of superficiality in contemporary culture is. We exist in a zeitgeist bastardization of those principles our forefathers strove to exemplify. If you're going to be my roommate you must enjoy classical, enchanting tunes; not the talentless, computerized sounds that the modern generation "listens" (if you can even call it that) to. You must also agree with me on the following points: The black race holds itself back, and is not being held back by other races The middle east needs to go Gender identity issues are a mental illness You 100% can work your way out of poverty, people who think otherwise are just lazy and thus show why they are in poverty If you meet all of my qualifications, I will potentially consider you as a possible roommate. P.S. I could have gotten more intellectual with my profound vocabulary but decided to dumb it down so that your lesser minds could fully comprehend the meaning of my words.

A Dream, America, and Apparently: kropotklndersurprise April 25 2015 Protesters take to the streets in Baltimore to express their anger over the Death of Freddie Gray, who was murdered by police. [videol thedaylleftthewomb Yup. Protesting against violence with more violence. Because that totally fucking works.I swear to god these protesters are fucking stupid half the damn time. tuth9 They should probably learn about Martin Luther King Jr. Read his "I have a dream" speech, in which he specifically says violence will not help. kropotklndersurprise Or maybe You should learn more about MLK than the one speech by him that they constantly repeat because it is nice and friendly and toothless? Letter from Birmingham Jail (ext) By Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., 16 April 1963 "First, I must confess that over the last few years I have been gravely disappointed with the white moderate. I have almost reached the regrettable conclusion that the Negro's great stumbling block in the stride toward freedom is not the White Citizen's Council-er or the Ku Klux Klanner, but the white moderate who is more devoted to "order" than to justice; who prefers a negative peace which is the absence of tension to a positive peace which is the presence of justice who constantly says "I agree with you in the goal you seek, but I can't agree with your methods of direct action;" who paternalistically feels he can set the timetable for another man's freedom; who lives by the myth of time and who constantly advises the Negro to wait until a "more convenient season." Shallow understanding from people of goodwill is more frustrating than absolute misunderstanding from people of ill will. Lukewarm acceptance is much more bewildering than outright rejection." A RIOT IS THE LANGUAGE OF THE UNHEARD gluten-free-pussY Whites need to keep MLK's name out their mouths before they catch this fade knowledgeequalsblackpower They use MLK's memory so casually.

Why sit ins, marches and so forth? Isn’t negotiation a better path?” You are quite right in calling for negotiation. Indeed, this is the very purpose of direct action. <b>Nonviolent</b> direct action seeks to create such a crisis and foster such a tension that a community which has constantly refused to negotiate is forced to confront the issue. It seeks so to dramatize the issue that it can no longer be ignored. My citing the creation of tension as part of the work of the <b>nonviolent</b> resister may sound rather shocking. But I must confess that I am not afraid of the word “tension.” I have earnestly <b>opposed violent tension</b>, but there is a type of <b>constructive, nonviolent tension</b> which is necessary for growth. Just as Socrates felt that it was necessary to create a tension in the mind so that individuals could rise from the bondage of myths and half truths to the unfettered realm of creative analysis and objective appraisal, so must we see the need for <b>nonviolent</b> gadflies to create the kind of tension in society that <b>will help men rise from the dark depths of prejudice and racism to the majestic heights of understanding and brotherhood.</b> The purpose of our direct action program is to create a situation so crisis packed that it will inevitably open the door to negotiation. I therefore concur with you in your call for negotiation. Too long has our beloved Southland been bogged down in a tragic effort to live in monologue rather than dialogue.</i></p> <p>&gt;.<i> My friends, I must say to you that we have not made a single gain in civil rights without determined legal and <b>nonviolent</b> pressure.</i></p> <p>-Letters from a Birmingham jail, MLK Jr.</p> <p>So the “<b>direct action</b>” he was talking about was, drumroll please, <b>nonviolent</b>. Specifically, non-violent. </p> <figure class="tmblr-full" data-orig-height="243" data-orig-width="400" data-orig-src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/c7f9f1ddf249b15e79b86168389eff8d/tumblr_o50s92RMxT1s9a9yjo1_400.gif"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/c7f9f1ddf249b15e79b86168389eff8d/tumblr_inline_p7h3lnI1Ug1rw09tq_540.gif" alt="" data-orig-height="243" data-orig-width="400" data-orig-src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/c7f9f1ddf249b15e79b86168389eff8d/tumblr_o50s92RMxT1s9a9yjo1_400.gif"/></figure><p>In fact, it’s almost as if you <b>deliberately quoted</b> one of the few parts of the letter where he <b>doesn’t</b> use the term <b>“non-violence”</b>.</p> <h2>Pop quiz, geniuses. If MLK was really endorsing riots, w<b>hy aren’t you talking about all the times he rioted</b>?</h2> <p>&gt;<i>There’s no doubt about that. <b>I will agree that there is a group in the Negro community advocating violence now</b>. I happen to feel that this group represents a numerical minority. Surveys have revealed this. The vast majority of Negroes still feel that the best way to deal with the dilemma that we face in this country is through <b>non-violent resistance</b>, and I don’t think this vocal group will be able to make a real dent in the Negro community in terms of swaying 22 million Negroes to this particular point of view. And I contend that the cry of “black power” is, at bottom, a reaction to the reluctance of white power to make the kind of changes necessary to make justice a reality for the Negro. I think that we’ve got to see that <b>a riot is the language of the unheard</b>. And, what is it that America has failed to hear? It has failed to hear that the economic plight of the Negro poor has worsened over the last few years.</i></p> <p>&gt;<i>[…]So that I would say that every summer we’re going to have this kind of vigorous protest. My hope is that it will be non-violent. I would hope that we can avoid riots because  <b>riots are self-defeating and socially destructive.</b></i></p> <p><a href="http://www.cbsnews.com/news/mlk-a-riot-is-the-language-of-the-unheard/">http://www.cbsnews.com/news/mlk-a-riot-is-the-language-of-the-unheard/</a></p> </blockquote>

Beautiful, Cute, and Irish: sharontates: braaaaain: webofgoodnews: Irish town builds memorial to thank Native Americans who helped during Famine A sculpture of nine eagle feathers will be installed in Bailic Park, in Midleton, Co Cork to thank the Choctaw Indians for their kindness and support during the Great Irish Famine. Despite the oppression faced by the Choctaws in the years preceding the famine, on hearing of the plight and hunger of the Irish people in 1847, they raised $170 to send to the Irish people and ease their suffering. This figure is equivalent to tens of thousands of dollars in today’s currency. The sculpture, consisting of nine giant, stainless steel eagle feathers, is currently being completed by Cork sculptor Alex Pentek. Speaking to the Irish Examiner, Pentek says, “I wanted to show the courage, fragility and humanity that they displayed in my work.” Read more Webofgoodnews.com Okay, so I saw $170 and I thought that is was a cute but largely symbolic gesture of kindness but then i actually looked up the inflation from 1847 and it turns out that it is over $71 THOUSAND in today’s money, raised by a people who themselves were enduring economic oppression. As a descendant of Irish immigrants, I can’t tell you how much reverence and respect I have for the Choctaw people. And as an Irish person, born and bred, I cannot express how deeply touched and overwhelmed with gratitude and respect I have for the Choctaw people, and in general, the Native American people. Truly a beautiful gesture during a very difficult time for us in history. It’s nice to be reminded of good deeds that humanity is capable of carrying out. I’m very happy that my country created and dedicated this work of art to them. A very overdue ‘Thank You’ that will hopefully remain for all time.

Children, Family, and Friends: IN THE C O U NTRY WE LOVE MY FAMILY DIVIDED DIANE GUERRERO WITH MICHELLE BURFORD dianeguerreronews: The star of Orange is the New Black and Jane the Virgin presents her personal story of the real plight of undocumented immigrants in this country Diane Guerrero, the television actress from the megahit Orange is the New Black and Jane the Virgin, was just fourteen years old on the day her parents and brother were arrested and deported while she was at school. Born in the U.S., Guerrero was able to remain in the country and continue her education, depending on the kindness of family friends who took her in and helped her build a life and a successful acting career for herself, without the support system of her family. In the Country We Love is a moving, heartbreaking story of one woman’s extraordinary resilience in the face of the nightmarish struggles of undocumented residents in this country. There are over 11 million undocumented immigrants living in the US, many of whom have citizen children, whose lives here are just as precarious, and whose stories haven’t been told. Written with Michelle Burford, this memoir is a tale of personal triumph that also casts a much-needed light on the fears that haunt the daily existence of families like the author’s and on a system that fails them over and over. Available in Hardcover E-book **May 2016

Eight of the kids were out with their father but Nicole and two of her oldest children were at home. Nicole attempted to drive away but was subsequently stopped and arrested for resisting (attempting to prevent officers from taking her two boys away). The sheriff then demanded Joe Naugler turn over the other eight children by 10am the next day or face felony charges, an order with which he complied. “They are an extremely happy family,” said family friend Pace Ellsworth, who asserts that the Nauglers were targeted because of their “back to basics life” and their decision to homeschool their children. Friends reported no concerns about how the children were being treated by the parents, who follow an educational model called “unschooling” where the children decide their own curriculum based on the subjects that interest them and what their strengths are. <br/>“This is the natural way to live,” said Ellsworth. “It’s actually a growing movement. They want to have a personal education and not a factory education. They are completely open about their life. Everyone is learning by living. They are all extremely intelligent.” The<b> <a href="https://www.facebook.com/MyBlessedLittleHomestead">family’s Facebook page</a> </b>– entitled “My Blessed Little Homestead,” is a charming testament to their way of life. The Naugler children are obviously living a blissful “free range” lifestyle amongst 26 acres of land in Breckinridge County. “They frequently post pictures and videos of their children, animals and their off-grid life,” reports <b><a href="http://www.offthegridnews.com/current-events/police-seize-10-children-from-off-grid-family-because-theyre-homeschooled/">Off the Grid News</a></b>. “A May 5 post showed a video of a toddler, Mosiah, learning to walk. An April 24 post showed a happy family, gathering around a campfire, roasting marshmallows.” The family have set up a <b><a href="http://www.gofundme.com/tz4xng">GoFundMe page</a></b> to try and raise money for legal expenses. <br/>A <b><a href="http://www.saveourfamily.info/">website for the family</a></b> spells out their plight with the heart-wrenching words; “This Kentucky family of 12 people, 6 dogs, 2 farm cats and a few random farm animals was just torn apart. Their crime: Living a simple, back to basics life.”This shocking story once again illustrates how families attempting to simply get on with their lives in a traditional manner are being treated as extremists by other Americans, snitched on, and targeted by authorities.Meanwhile, in New Jersey, a <b><a href="http://www.wnd.com/2015/05/homeschoolers-interrogated-on-guns-vaccines/">WND report</a></b> highlights how parents were interrogated by a CPS caseworker who questioned Christopher Zimmer and his wife Nicole, “on everything from their son’s homeschool education to questions about vaccines and guns in the house.”Michelle Marchese aggressively demanded to enter the property after asserting Christopher Zimmer Jr. was not getting a “proper education.” Police subsequently arrived and allowed Marchese to enter the home before conducting a warrantless search.The Zimmers are now suing the CPS for $60 million in a case before the U.S. District Court in Trenton.”</blockquote> <p><b>PLEASE SHARE TO HELP THIS FAMILY!
