I have literally always wanted to be her. Like, I’ll be the crazy cat lady if I can be the one that’s rich & lives in a mansion in Paris
can we talk about this lady please? How she was an elderly, single woman who literally left all of her property to her cats and how the artists could have just made her a stereotypical crazy old cat lady but instead they made her absolutely fabulous and graceful and she still twirls in front of her mirror like she’s pretending to be a princess at age 60/70/80-something?
If this relationship thing doesn’t work out for me, this is who I aspire to be.
I’m having a raw gems moment. Oh me oh my.
not that anyone ever would but if anyone ever does propose to me i want a raw/natural stone in silver or white gold pls and thanks
I want these on my fingers right nao
never going to be over the fact that Arthur and Molly Weasley had seven children of their own, and hardly enough money or space to make due, yet they never thought twice about having an extra space at the table or making one more sweater at Christmas for the people who came into their family by circumstance.
#people Harry should have seriously fucking considered naming his kids after
I love my First Lady
Can you please tell her to tell her husband to stop killing muslims? Thanks
literally all she does is try to make the country “healthy” by giving students shitty school lunches like please do something else and help your husband fix the economy! *goes awf*
Imma need y’all to learn how the United States Government works. You don’t have to like her or the president but learn that they do not makes the decisions, they really do not have very much power, the president does not have the power to just snap his fingers and make shit happen or change things. You have to have 2/3 vote from congress to take a shit, let alone do anything having to do with government. The entire government was set up to make sure that exact thing could never happen, that is why there are 3 branches and that little thing called checks and balances.
In fact let me just break this down for y’all right here.
- President has 2 OFFICIAL jobs, Commander and Chief of the Armed Forces, but he only controls a limited amount of the funding for those troops (enough for 90 to 120 days) to engage these troops in combat. He CANNOT just declare war. only congress can declare war. The second, Accountant over the Federal Budget.
- He also is responsible for creating and balancing the national budget, but everything has to be approved by congress with a 2/3 vote.
- He signs bills into law, can veto them as well, however congress can override his veto.
- He assigns judges to the Supreme court, with the senates approval.
- He assigns foreign ambassadors, with the senates approval.
- he creates his own cabinet for people to research into areas that he might not have the time to, these are the only people who do not have to get approval from senate
- congress is made up of 535 people (100 senators 435 HoR) for any of them to come to 1 agreement has only happened once in the history of this country, and that was to go into WWII, and even that the house voted 434 to one (1st woman house of Representative she was from Maine too, she voted against WW1 and 2) and the judicial branch can call anything unconstitutional and kill it as well.
and if you think i’m lying you can literally google this shit in 2 seconds.
That tea is delicious
SAY THAT SHIT AGAIN!
I would love for people to remember this when they want to start blaming the president. Any president, though not all of them have had good ideas.
lemme get in here a sec.
The President needs a 2/3 vote in Congress to get practically anything done, right? Well currently, the 133th US Congress is split with 53 Democratic senators and 45 Republican senators and 201 Democratic representatives and 234 Republican representatives. That makes a pretty even split between the two major political parties. Ever since President Obama was elected into office, the Republicans have voted down every piece of legislation he’s attempted to pass, in an effort to pin him as the worst president in American history, so that they can go back to their white-washed elitist lives and keep all their hoarded money from the people. The President has been doing everything he can to change things, but he cannot do that without the approval of Congress. Remember that week-long shutdown we had? Yeah, that was because the Republicans weren’t getting exactly their way with the budget, so they decided to shut down the whole goddamn government until they got their way. The United States Government relies on compromise and agreement between the two parties, and we’re seriously lacking right now in that department.
So if you want to blame someone for our country’s issues, blame the goddamn Republicans for acting like tantrum-throwing two year olds.
I read somewhere that this is the most useless Congress this country has had since the 1960s. Nothing is getting done.
And yet Obama still got Obamacare through Congress, and 3-4 million Americans now have insurance who did not have it before. Not only that, but there are not more part time workers, as opponents to the bill shrieked. The number of part-time workers fell by 230,000. The number of full-time workers has risen (by two million).
So I’d say the Republicans are full of hooey. Also, they keep leaving town to go on vacation in the middle of crises. That looks to me like they aren’t that interested in governing and ought to be replaced by somebody who is.
MY DEAREST OF FRIENDS,
CURRENT EVENTS HAVE BROUGHT SOMETHING TO MY ATTENTION THAT I THINK NEEDS TO BE ADDRESSED.
SEXUAL ORIENTATION AND GENDER IDENTITY ARE PERSONAL. COMPLETELY PERSONAL. RESPECT WHATEVER PRONOUNS A PERSON IDENTIFIES WITH, BUT DON’T PRESSURE THEM TO REVEAL PERSONAL INFORMATION. EVERYONE HAS THE RIGHT TO SHARE THINGS AS THEY FEEL COMFORTABLE AND/OR SEE A NEED TO DO SO.
THIS IS AN INCREDIBLY SENSITIVE AND PERSONAL TOPIC FOR MOST, AND IT’S SOMETHING THAT NO ONE SHOULD BE MADE TO FEEL STRESSED OR UNSETTLED OVER. LET’S JUST FOCUS ON LOVE AND SUPPORT FOR EACH OTHER.
if you look closely at the washington memorial, you can see a patch of discoloration on the bottom section of the structure. this is due to water damage resulting from when president nixon famously and controversially let the government open the water gate in 1973. this caused washington dc to flood and the damage took many years to repair. the american people voted to impeach president nixon for this oversight. it is widely remembered as one of the worst decisions in the world.
Actually wasn’t that because construction was stopped for a time for some reason idk but then when I started again they couldn’t get the same material
im pretty sure it was because of the water gate
Watergate was a scandal that happened in which documents were destroyed in the watergate building which lead to his impeachment. Not an actual watergate
there is a lot of conflicting information out there and probably a lot of different cover-ups to be found. who knows what really happened.
::in my granny voice:: You kids! You coulda looked this up, you know!
The Democratic headquarters for the 1972 elections was located in the Watergate Hotel in Washington. Nixon’s staff set up a plan to wiretap their phones. On their third attempt a security guard saw signs of a burglar and arrested them. The FBI discovered the name of other Nixon officials in one of the “burglar’s” address books, and they started investigating. It started a long mess involving illegal funds, illegal committees, illegal spying, a criminal Attorney General, taped recordings that Nixon had had erased (which looked very bad), an anonymous informant who told two reporters a lot more bad things the White House was up to. In the end, Nixon resigned before he could be impeached by Congress, and Gerald Ford, the new president, pardoned him immediately so he couldn’t be investigated any further.
Some people even say that’s why the Republicans hate the Democrats today, because of their slimy buddy Richard Nixon.
That’s Watergate. Not a flood in the Washington Mall that left a mark on the Washington Monument! If you can track down a book called ALL THE PRESIDENT’S MEN, it will tell you about it. What are they teaching for history these days?
So my teacher told us that two blue eyed people can’t have a brown eyed kid and this kid in my class said “but both my parents have blue eyes and I have brown eyes”. The teacher said “so you’re adopted”. THe next day the kid came in and told us that he confronted his parents about it and that they said he was adopted but wanted to wait for the right time to tell him.
Friends is not a perfect show but those moments when the women stood up for themselves were truly formative. For quite a long time in my young personal life I didn’t see many women standing up for themselves when men gave them shit. I only read about them, or saw them occasionally on television, and I am grateful to those fictional women for giving me a spine, a vocabulary with which to stand up for myself, and plenty of gumption.
