there’s people who are good at fanart, people who are good at character analysis, people who are good at developing AUs, people who are good at stealth fandom crafts and goods, people who are good at writing sprawling fics, people who are good at writing a prolific number of oneshots, people who are good at fanmixes…

what can I do? I can figure out what bird a character is, based on their physical traits, personality/behavior, and name-related puns and references. it’s probably also an uncommon or obscure bird, one that most people have never heard of, and therefore have never spent a moment caring about and probably never will.

it doesn’t really tend to resonate with most people in fandom, surprisingly enough.

I’m not sure if abilities like Cloud Nine and stuff will affect Primal Weather but if it does….

…CLEARLY PSYDUCK IS THE BEST WEATHER COUNTER JK

I did have fun making all the ORAS graphic stuff tho :)

EDIT: Apparently Cloud Nine CAN override heavy weather (so you can use fire moves in Primordial Sea, water moves in Desolate Land)! Moldbreaker can’t though. (VIDEO LINK for proof)

I love my First Lady

Can you please tell her to tell her husband to stop killing muslims? Thanks

literally all she does is try to make the country “healthy” by giving students shitty school lunches like please do something else and help your husband fix the economy! *goes awf*

Imma need y’all to learn how the United States Government works. You don’t have to like her or the president but learn that they do not makes the decisions, they really do not have very much power, the president does not have the power to just snap his fingers and make shit happen or change things. You have to have 2/3 vote from congress to take a shit, let alone do anything having to do with government. The entire government was set up to make sure that exact thing could never happen, that is why there are 3 branches and that little thing called checks and balances.

In fact let me just break this down for y’all right here. 

  • President has 2 OFFICIAL jobs, Commander and Chief of the Armed Forces, but he only controls a limited amount of the funding for those troops (enough for 90 to 120 days) to engage these troops in combat. He CANNOT just declare war. only congress can declare war. The second, Accountant over the Federal Budget. 
  • He also is responsible for creating and balancing the national budget, but everything has to be approved by congress with a 2/3 vote. 
  • He signs bills into law, can veto them as well, however congress can override his veto. 
  • He assigns judges to the Supreme court, with the senates approval. 
  • He assigns foreign ambassadors, with the senates approval. 
  • he creates his own cabinet for people to research into areas that he might not have the time to, these are the only people who do not have to get approval from senate
  • congress is made up of 535 people (100 senators 435 HoR) for any of them to come to 1 agreement has only happened once in the history of this country, and that was to go into WWII, and even that the house voted 434 to one (1st woman house of Representative she was from Maine too, she voted against WW1 and 2)  and the judicial branch can call anything unconstitutional and kill it as well. 

and if you think i’m lying you can literally google this shit in 2 seconds. 

That tea is delicious

SAY THAT SHIT AGAIN! 

I would love for people to remember this when they want to start blaming the president. Any president, though not all of them have had good ideas.

lemme get in here a sec.

The President needs a 2/3 vote in Congress to get practically anything done, right? Well currently, the 133th US Congress is split with 53 Democratic senators and 45 Republican senators and 201 Democratic representatives and 234 Republican representatives. That makes a pretty even split between the two major political parties. Ever since President Obama was elected into office, the Republicans have voted down every piece of legislation he’s attempted to pass, in an effort to pin him as the worst president in American history, so that they can go back to their white-washed elitist lives and keep all their hoarded money from the people. The President has been doing everything he can to change things, but he cannot do that without the approval of Congress. Remember that week-long shutdown we had? Yeah, that was because the Republicans weren’t getting exactly their way with the budget, so they decided to shut down the whole goddamn government until they got their way. The United States Government relies on compromise and agreement between the two parties, and we’re seriously lacking right now in that department.

So if you want to blame someone for our country’s issues, blame the goddamn Republicans for acting like tantrum-throwing two year olds.

Literally we are currently experiencing the least productive civic period in the history of the country because the entire Republican party platform is simply “do not let anything from Obama pass”. How can anyone be mad at anything other than congress right now? CONGRESS HAS A LOWER APPROVAL RATING THAN FUCKING NICKLEBACK.

This post is in need of a correction. The Senator who voted against entry into World War II (and who also voted against entry to World War I) was Republican Jeannette Rankin of Montana, not Maine. She was the first woman elected to Congress and, yes, the sole dissenting vote against declaring war on Japan in 1941, as she was an avowed pacifist. She said, “As a woman I can’t go to war, and I refuse to send anyone else.”

Sorry to hijack the post about how today’s Republicans are currently stonewalling almost all hopes of progress in our current Congress but I didn’t want Jeannette Pickering Rankin to go mentioned but unnamed. 

so I got pulled over for the very first time tonight.

I was taking my mom back to her hotel and a cop car followed me into the lot then flashed lights. turns out it was over my tags. my registration went thru but I haven’t gotten the new tags yet so it looks like it’s expired. cop said that I pulled over too fast for his system to look it up so lol ig that was my fault too.

so in the end it was no big deal but tell that to my freaking anxiety.

hello friends I am here to say that you are fantastic people. you make me smile and I wish you good things. <3

Powerful portraits of the Liberians who beat Ebola 

To help humanize the overwhelming statistics, Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer and senior staff photographer at Getty Images, John Moore, visited an Ebola treatment center of the organization, Doctors Without Borders in Paynesville, Liberia. At the treatment center, survivors spoke about the brothers, sisters, husbands and wives they lost due to the disease. They also spoke of recovery, stigmas they continue to face in their villages and renewed hope.
