Wish I had the choice. It’s hard to be mad at my parents though. Cultural influence is very strong.

We NEED WWIII

and it needs to be waged against those doing industrial scale harm to air/water/forests. The same amount of effort and money spent as any other war with all the regular allies + our foes. We’re all in this oppression together and we need to save 7 billion people from genocide. It’s the most justifiable war in history.

Since Easter eggs are on our mind… 21 images the egg industry doesn’t want YOU to see: http://peta2.me/tumeggfacts


Again, there are options for the above as well. That’s how the chickens I buy eggs from live and you know what? They genuinely taste better. I think it’s because they eat protein, but I’m not sure. It also probably has a lot to do with exercise as well.

Amish hotdogs are amazing. I don’t mean like they’re not bad like Hebrew National (the best I’ve ever found). I mean they actually taste good. You want to eat them while there is still other shit in the fridge.

Just a reminder that everything we are and everywhere we go is temporary.

Why You Need To Pay Attention To Gary Johnson’s Lawsuit To Fix Presidenial Elections In America

Gary Johnson has released an ad for his “Our America Initiative,” which is asking for crowd-sourced donations to his lawsuit to sue the Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD), a private organization created by both the Democratic and Republican Parties which controls access to the Presidential debates.

The Issue

The Democratic and Republican parties have secured a monopoly on access to Presidential Debates by working with institutionalized media to create a system that blocks candidates from other parties from entering the debates.  Eric W. Dolan summed up the details during the 2012 debates:

The debate rules specify that to be included, candidates must receive at least 15 percent in a major poll. Most major polls do not even list [third party candidates] as an option. Televised presidential debates date back to 1960, and have been a regular event since the 1976 election. Originally administered by the League of Women Voters, they’ve been jointly organized by the Democratic and Republican parties through the Commission on Presidential Debates—a group the two parties jointly formed—since 1987.

In other words, the CPD has created a shell game.  In order to have access to the Presidential Debates, you need at least 15% approval rating in a major national poll.  But most major national polls do not list third party candidates as an option, making it de facto impossible for most third party candidates to enter the debates.

What The Lawsuit Would Achieve

Gary Johnson’s lawsuit would ask the court to order the CPD to allow any candidate access to the Presidential Debates who is listed in enough states to garner at least 50% of the electoral college votes.  This requirement would give third party candidates access to the debates, while ensuring that only serious candidates were allowed in.

Why It Matters

Access to the debates is not simply a token gift to third parties to make them feel better.  As recent lawsuits over campaign finance laws indicate (i.e. Citizens United McCutcheon), access to mass media is a very big deal.  When third parties are denied access to the debates, large swathes of voters are not given an opportunity to compare the ideas of the candidates in real time.  

The forum of the Presidential Debate itself also grants an air of legitimacy to the candidates.  Candidates who are denied access to the debates are both literally and figuratively shoved into the unwilling role of “outsiders,” which makes many voters afraid to commit to them for fear of wasting their vote.  The CPD and institutionalized media have thus created a system that effectively prevents third party candidates from achieving legitimacy in America’s 2-party system.

If Gary Johnson’s lawsuit is successful, third party candidates would have real access to the Presidential Debates, and would have an opportunity to bring their message to the largest national media platform during election season.  Third party candidates would finally have an opportunity to bring their message to a national media platform which has historically been denied to them, and in the process, be given an opportunity to change voter’s minds at the time when it matters most.
