I half hope Finn stays sad and the show gets a little more serious and we get to learn a lot more about Ooo and shit but that will never happen.

I’ve heard that this season is supposed to be really into storytelling and prominently feature Finn’s dad. That it won’t be like Jake becoming a father for an episode and then moving back in with Finn.

If Hillary Clinton got Chelsea Clinton to get pregnant in order to deflect attention away from Benghazi, and thus from an issue FOX News seems convinced will hurt her 2016 presidential candidacy, a question:

what’s Benghazi a distraction from?

My pick? I’m guessing … an Obama/Chelsea Clinton affair that led to Chelsea already having an out-of-wedlock baby who was born in  … wait for it! … KENYA!

But I could be wrong.

Hemp is a Sensible, Sustainable, Highly-Industrializable Plant

We should utilize it. Hemp could solve many problems.

END PROHIBITION. It is NOT just about smoking.

YEP.

And you forgot a big one: it is excellent at trapping carbon! Plants pull the carbon dioxide out of the air, turn the carbons into other compounds and release the oxygen, thus cooling the planet.

I’m more interested in ending the Mexican drug cartels’ reign of terror. My people don’t deserve to live in fear.

Its illegal to grow because of what you JUST SAID… think of all the businesses that will be threatened by legal cannabis.  And these businesses already have big lobbyists.  And its lobbyist money that determines votes in congress.  

I think BigPharma is terrified, as well as the Cotton/Polyester industry…  hemp cloth is so incredibly durable and simply doesn’t get holes (unless you determinedly CUT a hole in it).  Amazingly resilient fabric, just like hemp rope, once people start using it, cotton might well be a thing of the past.. or used only for a minority of clothes.  

There are billions at stake, and that is why they are fighting.  Capitalism ruins everything.

"Another problem with the sex positive movement is the idea that questioning the ethics of a fetish is always “kink shaming”. I think that whatever two adults do consensually is fine, but I also think that it’s important to critically examine why so many people fantasize about rape or have really racist sexual fantasies. Any sex worker can tell you that people have disturbing and fucked-up fetishes, and the idea that we shouldn’t question where those come from is ridiculous."

Anonymous asked: How is Dany on a path to madness?

tommen-baratheon:

first of all: dont get me wrong i love dany

we all now that dany isnt emotionally stable. after everything that has happened to her: for once, viserys, the only family she had in her life was an abusive piece of shit and (clearly) mad (but thats a completely other issue and even this is argued about), then her marriage to khal drogo and him raping her, when she was only 13, causing her to romanticize their marriage and thinking that she loved him, when in fact it could never be healthy, oh and yeah, viserys being killed by her husband, who was, in fact, not better than viserys.

those issues are of course main points why she isn’t the sanest person. but, as a 16 year old girl she has handled it very well so far. she is still trying to be strong for everyone, her folk and she herself knows that she isnt smart and experienced enough. 

lets look away from all the scenes the show gives us, because they only show us how **badass** she is and just throw in some dragons. i, on my place, dont care about them, tbh those scenes are getting on my nerves. 

thats a fifteen year old girl burning down people theres nothing cool about that (same with arya killing people). 

we all know about the “madness and greatness” quote.

(…) once told me that madness and greatness are two sides of the same coin. Every time a Targaryen is born, the gods toss a coin in the air and the world holds its breath to see how it will land.

it is very common for the targaryen to be mad, (i guess its because of all the incest). but you have to keep in mind, the world isnt black or white, or mad and great, its not divided. in my opnion dany has both- madness and greatness. she still has a good heart and struggles with her morals and emotions to do things which lead to chaos, but she does it anyways.

here’s the difference: while other mad targaryens probably dont even care what their actions lead in, dany does. but she does it anyway, and thats where the difference ends. even IF she feels bad about that, she still did it, didnt she.

and now we come to the real part of everything: dany’s storyline in meeren. i think its the most important for her and shows her struggle. there are so many quests and porblems coming in her way that tests her again and again. 

i couldnt have said it better

With that in mind, a closer look reveals that Dany’s plotline in Meereen has been very cleverly designed as a series of tests of her values, and one value in particular. Each test is designed to ask — how far will Dany go to make peace and protect innocent life? With nearly every new chapter, Dany is asked to give up something else she wants or desires, for the good of the Meereenese people. The use of her dragons. A share of power in Meereen. Some of her anti-slavery reforms. Her desire for vengeance. Her desire to right every wrong she sees. Her distaste for cultural practices she finds abhorrent. Her sexual autonomy. Her happiness. Her pride. Her chance at Westeros. (x)

dont get me wrong, dany has the best intentions. ending slavery. but that just doesnt work out, as we know from the books. and when she enters meeren she’s violent. she stays in meeren because she knows she cant go away like before, since that would cause even more chaos.

after drogon killed a girl, and we all know dany and her dragons (especially drogon) are connected. she thinks about what they’re capable of, how dangerous they are and that all goes back to her. she realizes that yes, she is capable of violence. she uses it when she’s angry and becomes cruel. her fears of becoming mad like all the other targaryens and she questions herself whether or not she is mad or on the path of madness are taking over her thoughts.

she responds violence with violence. 

  1. we all know that if dany would ever conquer westeros and take it over she will probably burn most people who did her/her family wrong. or at least she states so
  2.  slave traders made a decision as a group to crucify 163 children. And she made a decision to punish them as a group by crucifying 163 slave traders…. 

i am not saying that the slave traders “didnt deserve it” or that they werent bad people. but lets be real, she is really kind of going down the path of madness here. 

on the other hand: why does dany think she is the rightful queen of westeros? she think westeros is “hers by right”, a land she never even saw and hasnt lived in. thats the same with all the colonies she’s doing right now (meeren). she isn’t one of them, why should she be their queen? i think, personally, that she’s trying to make a home for herself but to be honest doesn’t really want to go anywhere. here a quick reminder: i like dany. dany has no home, and if she thinks of home she thinks of the red door, because she grew up there. but westeros? something in her head, just like with the post-drogosdeath-thing makes her think that she will find home in westeros. 

which i really doubt she ever will. she might not be content with westeros, because, yeah, after she conquers westeros: what will follow? i cant say i know it, but lets be real people, what do you think will people do? will they love dany for conquering them with her dragons and burning down cities? 

the thing with dany is still: she’s a young girl and everything is still before her. she can still change and find piece; i am not saying that she’ll be 100% mad (which i never said since i stated that she has madness AND greatness). i think its also very hard for her since jorah, one of the first persons she trusted after she was married to drogo, “betrayed” her. it’s hard for her to trust anybody after that, which is, of course, understandable.

either she’s enshrined as a badass conqueror or she’s derided for making horrible choices.  it’s a problem within fandom that these two traits aren’t often acknowledged to be able to coexist; she is both fierce conqueror and misguided, arrogant teenage girl (also frightened, lonely girl, but that’s a different topic).  she is greatness and madness.  there’s no point in dividing a coin down the side; it’ll always have another one.  acknowledge both.
