Awwww, aren’t they all adorable? :3
I know I probably left a lot of folks out, so feel free to add pictures of what a good, happy, true American family can be! Remember they come in all shapes, sizes, colors, ages, genders, religions, races, cultures, nationalities, sexualities, and appearances, so don’t leave anyone out! Especially when you VOTE. The only thing that defines what makes a family is love. <3
My, isn’t America wonderful~?

EDIT: And you know, I just wanted to add…you can send Rick Santorum and the rest of the country, even the rest of the world, the message that these families and other families that went unmentioned matter TOO, NOT just white, conservative, Christian, straight-parent, double-parent, rich, privileged families like his. Let him and the country know that ALL families have a say, ALL families are what define America, ALL families are what make this nation strong, ALL families matter, ALL families are important, and that ALL families deserve a CHANCE.
Let Rick Santorum know that OUR children deserve the chance to go to college, NOT just his.
Let Rick Santorum know that OUR children deserve to marry whoever they want, NOT just his.
Let Rick Santorum know that WE deserve to marry whoever we fall in love with, NOT just him and his wife Karen.
Let Rick Santorum know that OUR wives and girlfriends deserve to have life-saving abortions/miscarriages/whatever he chooses to call it, NOT just his.
Let Rick Santorum know that OUR special needs and disabled children deserve to have money that can help improve their lives, NOT just his daughter.
Let Rick Santorum know that threatening OUR families will NOT be tolerated, and that WE are the ones who believe in what America TRULY is, a place where ANY family can be free and happy.
Let Rick Santorum know that his family will NOT become the royal figureheads of a medieval theocracy where church and state are bound as one.
Let Rick Santorum know that marriage is as old as humanity and that HIS religion did NOT invent the concept and he can NOT force his definition of it on us.
Let Rick Santorum know that OUR women matter, OUR women should have a say over their own bodies, and that OUR women deserve to be LOVED in any way we see fit.
Let Rick Santorum know that OUR families deserve medical help, OUR parents deserve fair wages and fair pay, OUR parents deserve places in the work force, that OUR single mothers and single fathers and disabled parents are not to be shut out by greedy executives and CEOs who only seek to expand their own paycheck and give NOTHING back to their own employees or society at large.
Let Rick Santorum know that he is WRONG for excluding OUR families, that he is a BIGOT no matter how hard he tries to deny it, and that without OUR families working and toiling away beneath families like his, America would NOT be the rich and powerful country it is today.
Let Rick Santorum know that WE are America and that WE DON’T WANT HIM.
VOTE AGAINST SANTORUM AND OTHER HATEFUL MEN LIKE HIM.
A VOTE AGAINST THEM IS A VOTE FOR FAMILY IN ALL OF ITS FORMS.
A VOTE AGAINST THEM IS A VOTE FOR WHAT AMERICA REALLY IS: A LAND OF THE FREE, A LAND OF HARD-WORKING FAMILIES, A LAND OF EQUAL OPPORTUNITY, A LAND OF FAIR PLAY AND ASSISTING THOSE IN NEED, A LAND THAT DOES NOT SHUT OUT ITS POOR AND DENIES ITS CITIZENS THEIR RIGHTS, A LAND THAT DOES NOT LET BIGOTS LIKE RICK SANTORUM INTO THE WHITE HOUSE.
FAMILIES ARE PEOPLE, NOT CORPORATIONS.
FAMILIES ARE PEOPLE, NOT THEOCRACIES.
FAMILIES ARE PEOPLE, NOT RICK SANTORUM.

Oh my THIS is why I started following you. You are fucking AMAZING! In all truth I’d like it better if you ran for president more than any other candidate (even Obama, and I love Obama.)





DAT COMMENTARY. 

Beautiful.






bravo.

Family: by any name, still family.

"All the adults are saying, ‘We need to improve science in the world. Let’s train the kids.’ I’ve never heard an adult say, ‘We need more science in the world. Train me.’"

Neil deGrasse Tyson, on America’s lack of science literacy (via theatlantic)

Ha! I love it.

"There’s a law against everything. That’s America."

That’s what one cop told an Occupy Wall Street protester last night in Zuccotti Park. Eight of an estimated 30 protesters were arrested, mostly for disorderly conduct. Kind of the anti-‘Wire’, no? (via NY Mag)

You know police officers can park their cars anywhere they want in the fucking city and not worry about getting a ticket just because they slip some flimsy looking laminated placard on their dashboards saying that the car is on “OFFICIAL BUSINESS”?  Is there a law against that, officer?  Or shooting unarmed civilians?  Or beating them? 

Most cops are good, I’m sure.  Then there are the douchebags like this who are only in the positions they’re in because they have testosterone and guns.

Mini-doc of the day: “Poor America” from BBC’s Panorama

With one and a half million (1.5 million) American children now homeless, reporter Hilary Andersson meets the school pupils who go hungry in the richest country on Earth. From those living in the storm drains under Las Vegas to the tent cities now springing up around the United States, Panorama finds out how the poor are surviving in America and asks whatever happened to the supposed ‘government’ and the Real People in charge - those who you ‘don’t see’ pulling on the strings; and their vision and welfare for the country.

It’s amazing to me that our story’s being told in Britain and denied and twisted here at home.

Oh, this makes all the hours I put in feel worth it…

Americans don&#8217;t hate the rich&#8212; they love them quite literally like a fat kid loves cake. Deliciously unattainable, incomprehensible, unknowingly detrimental cake.
