Reasons I love Obama number 394.
Hahahaha…get ‘em Mr. President.
He’s certainly not perfect, but I love Obama.(via nessfraserloves)
A few petitions:
Some of these petitions are obviously more realistic than others. For the first three you have to make a WH.gov account but it does come in handy occasionally.
To send supplies:
UPS Store 118A
Fulton st #205
New York, NY, 10038
Non perishable goods, no checks (money orders okay) , any size package okay.
It takes seconds to create an account on WH.gov. It asks for your first name, last name, and e-mail address.
I don’t have a lot of faith in these We the People petitions, but it only takes a few seconds and it can’t hurt. I created one to End the Death Penalty. Add your name to this one too, please.
Elizabeth Warren has had a remarkable first week in her Senate campaign:
1. She has taken the lead on Republican Scott Brown, erasing a 15-point deficit from June.
2. She has stormed ahead the Democratic primary for MA-Sen by a cavernous 46 percent.
3. She is closing in on 25,000 donors on Act Blue, and several thousand more directly through her website.
4. Not one, but two videos of Warren have gone viral. The first was her rebuke against Republican charges of class warfare, and the second was her stunning appearance on Morning Joe from Wednesday morning (the second one actually has 50 percent more views on Daily Kos than the first).
Scared by Warren’s rapid rise, the forces of Wall Street have suddenly made her a top target.” —Elizabeth Warren becomes a target of right-wing media (via ryking)
Wadaj Khanfar, the director of Al Jazeera, announced his resignation today after Wikileaks released documents that could prove embarassing to the news organization, the New York Times has reported.
According to the documents, Khanfar held particularly close ties with the U.S. government, to whom he promised the network would provide less critical coverage. He steps down today after running the network for eight years.
The documents allege that Khanfar censored some of Al Jazeera’s coverage of the conflict in Iraq under American pressure to sanitize its coverage, presumably to minimize anti-U.S. sentiment in the Arab world. The coverage in question was to include images of injured civilians, which were allegedly removed by Khanfar.
They’re going to murder him.
Confusing. Stay or no stay?

GOT A STAY!!!!
I want to thank all of you for your efforts and dedication to Human Rights and Human Kindness, in the past year I have experienced such emotion, joy, sadness and never ending faith. It is because of all of you that I am alive today, as I look at my sister Martina I am marveled by the love she has for me and of course I worry about her and her health, but as she tells me she is the eldest and she will not back down from this fight to save my life and prove to the world that I am innocent of this terrible crime.
As I look at my mail from across the globe, from places I have never ever dreamed I would know about and people speaking languages and expressing cultures and religions I could only hope to one day see first hand. I am humbled by the emotion that fills my heart with overwhelming, overflowing Joy. I can’t even explain the insurgence of emotion I feel when I try to express the strength I draw from you all, it compounds my faith and it shows me yet again that this is not a case about the death penalty, this is not a case about Troy Davis, this is a case about Justice and the Human Spirit to see Justice prevail.
I cannot answer all of your letters but I do read them all, I cannot see you all but I can imagine your faces, I cannot hear you speak but your letters take me to the far reaches of the world, I cannot touch you physically but I feel your warmth everyday I exist.
So Thank you and remember I am in a place where execution can only destroy your physical form but because of my faith in God, my family and all of you I have been spiritually free for some time and no matter what happens in the days, weeks to come, this Movement to end the death penalty, to seek true justice, to expose a system that fails to protect the innocent must be accelerated. There are so many more Troy Davis’. This fight to end the death penalty is not won or lost through me but through our strength to move forward and save every innocent person in captivity around the globe. We need to dismantle this Unjust system city by city, state by state and country by country.
I can’t wait to Stand with you, no matter if that is in physical or spiritual form, I will one day be announcing,
“I AM TROY DAVIS, and I AM FREE!”
Never Stop Fighting for Justice and We will Win!
So sad about the upcoming murder of Troy Davis. I really can’t believe it’s going to happen. The State of Georgia is going to murder a man in less than two hours, despite the fact that there is no physical evidence he committed the crime, despite the fact that seven of nine witnesses have recanted their testimony, despite the fact someone else allegedly admitted committing the crime.
It’s just sickening. I feel like his blood will be on my hands, on all our hands. And it feels like we’re helpless to do anything to save him at this point.

Oh, what I meant was that you would go to *their* ask box and reply that way. So if you asked me a question, I answered, but you still wanted to reply, you’d go to my ask box. Make sense?
Yes, gotcha. Wish tumblr would implement what Missing E offered so that we could reply to answers right from our dashboard. Maybe one day…
If that person has an ask box, you can always use that! I’ll scour around for an email if I’m feeling particularly determined and they (for whatever reason) lack an ask box. (:
That’s strange. It won’t work for me. I can reply to replies, but not to answers.
The thing I miss most about Missing E is that I can’t respond to answers. Tumblr - this should be an option.
I was just reading about how you should clean dust from your laptop every so often. I’ve had my Macbook for about four years now and it’s never been opened up. I’m thinking I’ll take it to PeachMac and ask them to do it. Hoping it will cool things down a bit.
Any Macbook owners ever done this themselves?
Most folks are suggesting I not upgrade to Lion. But I have heard some positive things about Snow Leopard. Maybe that’s what I should get?
Does anyone know if I can use an html table in a tumblr post?
