Don’t worry, it doesn’t just take down the sources post, but it takes down all the reblogged posts too. Please give this a reblog, many artists out there may not know this is here.

On Monday, Speaker of the House John Boehner sent out a tweet about a man who claimed Obamacare wouldn’t cover his baby.
That would be terrible—if it were true. Turns out the man, a failed conservative political candidate, forgot to put his toddler on the application and never bothered to fix it.
Boehner knew the story wasn’t true and created a media frenzy about it anyway.
Days later, Boehner has yet to take the message down. His 78 assistants have yet to issue a statement correcting the record.
Here’s what I don’t understand: if the Affordable Care Act is such a giant disaster that’s bad for everyone, why do Republicans keep making things up about it, trying to confuse Americans what it does and doesn’t do, and lying at every opportunity about it? If it’s as bad as they say it is, shouldn’t the truth be enough?
Not only did RonaldReagan oppose the Voting Rights Act, but he and Dick Cheney supported Apartheid and Republicans labeled Nelson Mandela a terrorist and put him on a terrorism watch list which he remained on until 2008
“You’re going up against the Pope? You’re going up against the Pope on how to help the poor? Helping the poor is in this man’s wheelhouse! This Pope… helps the poor!!! But you’re telling him how to do his job? Pope doesn’t come over to your house and slap Jamie Dimon’s dick out of your mouth!”—JON STEWART, on Fox Business News anchor Stuart Varney saying “I disagree with the Pope, who doesn’t like free-market capitalism. I think free-market capitalism is a great liberator,” on The Daily Show (via inothernews)
“Motherfuckers will read a book that’s 1/3 elvish, but put two sentences in Spanish and White people think we’re taking over.”—Junot Diaz to the interview question “Do you think using Spanish in your writing alienates some of your readers?” (via endlesslyunamusing)
“If at any point over the coming days, weeks, and months to come, you find yourself confused as to how to navigate the thicket of pictures of Nelson Mandela coming at you in every country in the world, bear in mind this salient fact of history: it was once illegal in South Africa to have a picture of Nelson Mandela in your home.”—My two cents.

So, yeah. I know you’re tired of hearing about rape culture. But I’m tired of my friends getting raped.
I know you’re tired of hearing about abortion. I am too. So stop trying to tell me what to do with my uterus, and I promise you won’t hear another word from me about it.
I know men and women are different from each other. I’m just tired of that fact being used to excuse the inexcusable.
I know you’re tired of hearing about income inequality. But fuck you, pay us.
This is how it works. We get mad, we fight, we get tired, we get mad, we start again. Rinse, repeat. Feminism isn’t without its flaws, and it doesn’t seem able to speak with one voice or crystallize answers on the darker, stickier aspects of human nature and sexuality. But if I may get Rumsfeldian for a minute, this is the army we have. The fight comes to us whether we seek it or not, whether we want it or not, and whether we are ready or not.
