America, why won’t you listen to conservatives?
Let’s look at the record, shall we?
When the income tax was enacted, conservatives predicted an economic catastrophe.
When the Federal Reserve was created, conservatives said that this monstrous socialization of our system of credit spelled our ruination.
When legislation was passed for the health and safety of employees at the workplace, conservatives predicted it would have a disastrous impact on our economy.
When minimum wage laws were passed, conservatives predicted economic havoc.
When labor unions were permitted, conservatives predicted it would severely hamper our capitalist system.
When child labor was prohibited, conservatives predicted dire economic consequences.
When Social Security was enacted, conservatives predicted tremendous damage to our sense of responsibility.
When unemployment insurance was introduced, conservatives predicted chaos in our labor markets.
When the GI bill was passed, conservatives predicted a lowering of educational standards.
When the Interstate highway system was constructed, conservatives predicted it would be a wasteful extravagance.
When Medicare was passed, conservatives predicted it would be a socialist catastrophe.
When consumer product safety legislation was passed, conservatives said that this unwarranted interference in the workings of the free market would have serious deleterious consequences.
When the Food and Drug Administration was formed, conservatives warned it would imperil our prosperity.
When food stamps and other public nutrition assistance programs were developed, conservatives predicted they would destroy the incentive to work.
When the Environmental Protection Agency was established, conservatives predicted it would undermine the competitiveness of the U.S. economy.
In each and every instance, conservatives have turned out to be right. The American economy has undergone staggering decline, investment and innovation have plummeted, and profitability has almost been destroyed. And from the heights achieved in the early 19th century, America has been turned into an impoverished wasteland and a byword for economic ruin.
Why, America, why didn’t you listen to conservative warnings?
If only you had, you could have had a vibrant, thriving 19th century economy, instead of the misery you now endure…

FEMSLASH IS THE BEST :D
Why is this rule 63 so…..good?
this is really cute!!!
Because instead if just “BEWBS” the artist actually took time to put in details in the characters in an original way.
Each girl isn’t the same body type and their personality come out through, not only expression but visual ques.
Like how they wear their bandannas. Mikie has a bow symbolizing child-like innocence. Raph’s is all torn up. and Leo’s is longer, drawing us to “the leader”.
Ironically, Donnie got the short stick. Aside from the tooth gap, she looks kinda plain.
HOW IS THIS SO PERFECT
THIS IS THE BEST THING OF BEST THINGS
I would SO buy this…
This should be reblogged by everyone. Even if you’re straight, you should be a supporter.
What would modern technology and social networks look like if they were vintage ads
That IS awesome. *lol*

I think the real danger is the right realizing that the next time they have a Congressional majority, they can start dividing up every deep-red state that is controlled by a Republican legislature. We’d end up with 100 or 200 states, most of which would be tiny white rural parcels with a few hundred or thousand residents, each of which would get two Senators and a Representative. (They might have to skip some of the Southern ones for fear of creating majority-black states in some of the pieces. But they could divide up Idaho and Utah as small as they want.)
It’s the only way I can see that the Republicans can retain their ability to drive national policy over the long haul without widening their demographic appeal. All they have to do is dare to do it, and they’ve been doing things that are Not Done for quite some time now.
My new favorite thing.
Drinks are not consent. Flirting is not consent. Relationship status is not consent. Time of night is not consent. Previous sexual acts are not consent. Consent to A is not consent to B, C, D, E… Consent now is not consent later. A coerced yes is not consent. Previous partners is not consent. A lack of a “no” is not consent. An inebriated yes is not consent. In short: only (fully concious) consent is consent. And what is that? A passionate yes, every step of the way!
