Hey Mr. Romney. You don't know me, but I didn't vote for you in 2012. However, if you were running now against some narcissistic, bullying, authoritarian, bigoted, antagonistic man-baby somehow taking over the Democratic party, I'd vote for you in a heartbeat to keep them out of office. So thanks for taking this stand.

I can only hope the majority of Republicans feel the same way.
Mitt Romney suggested Friday that Donald Trump's election could legitimize racism and misogyny, ushering in a change in the moral fabric of American society.

AAAAAAAAAHHHHH BRAIN EXPLODING

How misinformed and xenophobic can one person possibly be? I have no idea what reality she lives in, but I want nothing to do with it.

This is "holy shit"-level huge to me. I've seen maybe one other public change of heart like this in national politics. Like, ever. So way to go, Ryan.

See? Changing your conclusions based upon new information isn't "flip-flopping." It's education.
Politicians pretty much never admit mistakes. Paul Ryan deserves credit for copping to a big one.

This. Yeah.
Jordan Klepper and Hasan Minhaj bask in the GOP's dissatisfaction with Donald Trump.

Both President Bushes and now Paul Ryan have said they will not support Trump in this election (more accurately for the Bushes, they will "not voice an opinion or vote," which speaks volumes). I'm so goddamned happy hearing that, I could cry.

Do I harbor resentment toward the Republican party? Yes. Yes I do.

I think this speaks for itself.
Former first lady Laura Bush hinted this week that she would rather see Hillary Clinton in the Oval Office than Donald Trump, saying she wants the next president to be someone who cares about women in Afghanistan.

This legitimately made me tear up a bit. I had no idea we had actually made so much global progress. Combined with the announcement from Tesla that their new affordable electric car received 232,000 pre-orders in the first 24 hours, it's clear that people really care and want to do something about it. It's downright inspiring.

You don't need to be, and absolutely should not be, partisan about this; extreme weather events and storms don't give a rat's ass what box you checked on a form.

Living in the United States of Science Denial has frightened me deeply in the past couple of years, because it's become clear that the climate change they warned us about 30 years ago is no longer just a vague, far-off possibility anymore, not when it's happening right in front of us, yet there are still large segments of our population who cling ferociously to the belief that it is all a hoax, a sham, a conspiracy to destroy the economy. Which means we have a not-insignificant number of citizens and politicians who actively oppose doing something about it, either due to corruption or, more often, misinformation. And that is horrifying coming from a country that wields as much power and as many resources as we do.

Now that it's hitting everyone right in the coastal cities, they can't stick their heads in the sand about it anymore, can't continue to insist it's all just alarmist bullshit, so it's grudgingly turned into, "fine, sure, the planet is warming up, but its not our fault." Right. Never mind that 97% of climate scientists on the entire planet agree it's happening and that we're causing it. Of course, then the line turns into, "well, I'm not a scientist..."

Great, then you don't get a vote.

In any case, that's been my frustration for a long time, made all the more upsetting by the fact that I once aligned myself with people like this (or I thought I did - I certainly felt the cognitive dissonance more keenly as time went by). I thought this video might be uplifting to people as frustrated and, I admit, genuinely afraid, for the world my children will grow up in, as I am.
Why is Al Gore optimistic about climate change? In this spirited talk, Gore asks three powerful questions about the man-made forces threatening to destroy our planet — and the solutions we're designing to combat them. (Featuring Q&A with TED Curator Chris Anderson)

Okay, I can't take it anymore. I need some place to vent my political frustrations, and I will not do it on Facebook because I simply have too many relationships that I am interested in, you know, actually keeping. Going to start my bitching here, so if anyone wants out, now's the time to hide me away under your "Annoying Ranters" circle (or group or whatever they're called now).

Sucks, doesn't it? This year in particular is stressing me the fuck out. Every year, I think it's gotten as bad as it can possibly get. Then I find out I was wrong.

Without a doubt this was the easiest sign-up I've ever experienced at a mobile company. The manager was attentive, understanding, and the product was explained in plain English (and it even sounded like it was written by normal people).

Unreal. "Happy" doesn't begin to describe how we feel about our entire experience of working with Kami. The photos of our son's birth came out so much better than we had hoped for (and we had high expectations to begin with)! She was an absolute ray of sunshine and made our day even more special. Thank you, Kami!
