Illinois’ Governor’s race is tight: tighter, perhaps, than it ought to be given the incumbent’s record and the fact that he only came to office when Rod Blagojevich went to prison.
So in an effort to help the incumbent Democrat, Pat Quinn, Local 150 of the International Union of Operating Engineers is going to pump more than $500,000 into supporting the LIBERTARIAN candidate for governor. Why? The Libertarian is pro-life and pro-gun; the Republican, wealthy investor Bruce Rauner, is pro-choice. The union wants potential Republican voters to know that “their” guy isn’t one of them.
So the pro-Democrat labor union is supporting the ultra-conservative Libertarian (who violates libertarian doctrine by being pro-life) in order to challenge the election of the pro-life (but virulently anti-union) Republican — thereby hopefully helping the Democrat.
And people think politics is hard.

BUt LIKE HONESTLY.
I was just in South Africa for two weeks and everyone brought up ebola immediately upon learning of my trip. Never mind that the nearest case of Ebola was an Entire length and a half of the whole United states away. I was closer in the US then in South Africa.
Harry was the favorite kid and he wasn’t even an official part of the family
Because Molly knows exactly how the Dursleys treat him. There’s no way Ron wouldn’t tell her. And Molly Weasley is a Mother. She gets a capital M because she is goddamn phenomenal at what she does. When she hears Harry Potter is on the train to Hogwarts in Book 1, her reaction isn’t to be starstruck. It’s to say “that poor dear had to come here all on his own.” Molly Weasley loves harder than anyone. She loves like it’s her sole reason for being. And when she hears there’s a poor boy who has never known love his whole life… how could she not?
In Year One Molly Weasley knit Harry a Weasley family sweater and made him homemade chocolate so he would have something to open on Christmas DON’T TOUCH ME
could I also just add that kids from abusive households tend to assume that yelling is directed at them and/or it heralds something bad for them so she’s making extra sure that he knows that this is not his fault and she’s not actually mad at him.
Also look at his reaction, he tenses and looks to Ron and the Twins for support.
This will probably be my favorite song ever until such time as I actually grow the fuck up.

The prison-industrial complex is just a myth…right?
Jesus he didn’t even have us do the damn math. He just said it.
…yeah. I suppose there’s no point in finding flowery rhetoric for it. “Putting people in jail is good for business” is pretty much the size of it.
this is how you friend
I actually really liked this movie.
