Theodore Roosevelt, October 27, 1858 – January 6, 1919
“Death had to take him sleeping, for if Roosevelt had been awake there would have been a fight.”
All of our presidents combined can’t add up to how much of a badass he was.
TR Appreciation Post ‘12
The City of Steubenville, Ohio was covering up for its Star High School Football Stars who drugged and raped a 16 year old Girl. Then Anonymous stepped in….
End Rape and DO NOT TOLERATE RAPE ENABLERS
having crumbs in your bra is one of the worst feelings in the world
have you ever stepped in a puddle with your socks on?
Have you ever had the dark lord scar you and kill your parents when you were a baby
Have you ever had crumbs in your bra
do you ever use a pen and you’re just blown away by how smoothly it glides across the page and how the ink flows out so beautifully like tears of jesus or something
This is so powerful, why doesn’t it have more reblogs/likes?! This breaks my heart every time I see it.
this needs more publicity. how come foster kids go to shitty foster parents when there’s good people willing to take them?
Forever reblog. Such a powerful message.
and the saddest thing is, it’s true. not just an occasional fact, but every fucking day there are people who jam pack kids into their houses and abuse them, who are basically state baby sitters who juggle kids around.
and in the meantime loving same sex couples with time and warmth and happiness and honest to god wanting to be parents are turned away by the state because the old ass cunts that make up the government kill the chance.
if mitt romney becomes president his first order of business will be to bring down tumblr for making fun of him so much and when you type in tumblr.com all you will get is this

Some context for the idiots claiming the women are overreacting:
This [man pulling out his penis in front of the crowd] occurred at a Slut Walk. For those not familiar with it, the Slut Walk is basically a peaceful protest seeking to eliminate the rape apologism so prevalent in society. The basis is that no woman is “asking for it,” with “it” being rape. It’s not a feminist protest; it’s a human rights protest.
Many of the protesters, as you can probably imagine, have dealt with sexual harassment or rape in their own lives. Many of them have structured their daily activities to avoid being raped. The gathering is supposed to be a place for them to feel empowered and able to recover in the company of those who understand what they’ve been through or who will not blame them.
Nobody at a Slut Walk will tell a survivor that it’s her fault. They will not ask what she was wearing to provoke her attacker. Nobody will say she had too much to drink. Nobody will tell the men in the group that they are inherently rapists themselves, and nobody will tell a male survivor that his experience “wasn’t really rape.”
Then, this fellow comes along. He sees this gathering of survivors and their supporters, and to him, it’s a joke. He sees feminazis. He sees girls who are taking “a bit of fun” too seriously. And what does he do? He exposes himself to this group of survivors and supporters - some of whom are, in fact, underage.
He sexually harasses literally hundreds of women in one act. Aside from public indecency, there was cruel intent in his actions. He wanted to make them uncomfortable. He wanted to “put them in their place.” Other photos from this event show him flipping the protesters off and laughing at their anger.
And there are still people defending his actions. There are those who still feel like these women were asking for itand that they deserved to be harassed for trying to claim they weren’t. There are those who feel that women should be taught a lesson this way, and they applaud this man’s actions.
So no, he didn’t pull out his dick in front of feminist protesters. He harassed dozens - if not hundreds - of rape survivors. The reaction to his actions alone outline the purpose of the Slut Walk.
For those of you still doubting whether what he did was wrong (and I do wonder if there’s something wrong with you, if you have doubts), let me give you an analogous situation. Imagine a gathering of black civil rights activists. Imagine Martin Luther King Jr., Malcolm X, Rosa Parks, and all their colleagues gathered together to demonstrate that being black did not make them lesser people. That being black and living in the South did not mean they were “asking” to be the target of hate crimes.
And at this gathering, a white man decides he should teach them a lesson by pointedly hanging a noose from the nearest tree and laughing at their anger. And other white men, laughing along with him, commend him for taking these activists down a peg.
That’s what happened here. It’s not an “OMG, I can’t believe he did that!” moment. It’s an “OMG, there are people who think this is okay” moment. And the fact is, it’s not. It never will be. And that’s the take home message.
Hi. I’m Adam. And this is my friend Chase. I’m an Independent who supports Barack Obama for President. Chase is an Independent who has long supported Mitt Romney for President of the United States since 2007.
Today, the two of us decided to attend the Mitt Romney rally at Landmark Aviation in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. We parked in a lot 4 miles away from the event site where all those attending were then shuttled to the actual site. Upon arriving to the site, we got in a line and were greeted with friendly smiles… We then had our tickets swiped, went through security, and then both went to the restrooms before heading in to the building to stand and await the speech. I was the first to exit the restroom and stood to wait for Chase. As soon as he exited we began to head to the plane hangar where the event was taking place.
Two officers and one suited man (secret service) then approached us and said with a smile, “You need to leave.” My first thought was that we were getting in the way of an important Congressman coming through, or even the candidate himself… so we walked a bit to the side. He then repeated that we needed to head to the exit and leave. They began to grow tighter around us. I said, “Excuse me?” He repeated again, “You need to leave.” Chase than said, “I’m confused, I’m a supporter of Mitt Romney… we have tickets?” … Another officer chimed in, “You need to leave.” I then asked, “Why?” … “What is the reason?” The officer then said, “You either need to leave now or we will be forced to arrest you.” … “BUT WHY?” … “Head to the front now.”…No one else was asked to leave. Just us.
We left. Got back on a bus alone. And drove back to Iowa City. I’m in a state of utter confusion. I’ve been to so many Republican rallies in the last 5 years. I’ve always been courteous. I’ve never heckled. Besides some speeding tickets, I’m a law abiding citizen. I’ve greeted Mitt Romney in Muscatine, Iowa and had my picture taken with him as well as with Santorum, Perry, Bachmann, Ron Paul, John McCain, etc. I attended a Santorum rally in which anyone could ask a question… I did… it had to do with gay marriage… he answered it live on CNN. I met him afterwards where he instantly recognized who I was and thanked me for coming to the event.
Mr. Romney- I may not support you… but my friend HAS and DID for the last 5 years… yet, we weren’t allowed to attend? Why? Answer me that. WHY? Was it because we are gay or looked too flamboyant for your rally? What is it? Its not a surprise to me that you would treat someone this way… but it certainly came as a surprise to one of your ardent supporters. He now sees who you truly are. The guy who likes to take away rights and silence minorities.
I’m baffled. I’m embarrassed. I’m sad.
Can anyone enlighten me?
Please SHARE this. This may be minuscule to you… but it shows a story to a bigger picture of who this man really is.
I just want to know WHY?
This is a story from one of my personal friends on facebook. I felt that Tumblr is the place where this story really could be spread so people know the truth about the Romney campaign.
Please, please reblog this and let my friend Adam’s story be heard.
Wow. The fact that this man could be President in this day and age is baffling.
Can I just say that I think this is the way Mulan should appear int the parks. In the beginning of the movie they make it very clear that the dress she wears to meet the matchmaker is not comfortable nor does it represent her personality. She spends the whole of the film proving that she is not a prize to be won or just a pawn to be married off at earliest convenience. She proves her worth in this outfit. She saves China in this outfit. She falls in love in this outfit. She risks her life, makes her strongest friendships, and changes the entire country IN THIS OUTFIT. Then they have her walk around the park in the same outfit she wore in the first scene of the movie and I think it is really negative toward her character. That is not who she is.
