Is Stephen Colbert ever not perfect?
For anyone who doesn’t get this…
“The incident: dog excrement found on the roof and windows of the Romney station wagon. How it got there: Mitt Romney strapped a dog carrier — with the family dog Seamus, an Irish Setter, in it — to the roof of the family station wagon for a twelve hour drive from Boston to Ontario.”
If Romney showed this kind of cruelty ↓ to his family dog, how’s he going to treat you?
June 1987, Madonna was rushed to the Cedars Sinai hospital for an X-ray after her then-husband—Sean Penn hit her across the head with a baseball bat. At the time, they had been having a heart-to-heart talk about reconciling.
Madonna did not make an official complaint because Penn was about to serve a short jail term for attacking a film extra and violating the probation he’d been given for punching a fan. It was a decision she would come to regret. In the late afternoon of December 28, 1988, Penn scaled the wall surrounding the Malibu house and found Madonna alone in the master bedroom.
According to a report filed by Madonna with the Malibu sheriff’s office, the two began to quarrel. Penn told her he owned her “lock, stock and barrel”. When she told him she was leaving the house, he tried to bind her hands with an electric cord. Screaming and afraid, Madonna fled from the bedroom. Penn chased her into the living room, caught her and bound her to a chair with heavy twine. Then he threatened to shave her hair. Penn was “drinking liquor straight from the bottle” and the abuse went on for nine hours, during which he smacked and forced Madonna to perform a “degrading sex act” on him.
He went out to buy more alcohol, leaving Madonna bound and gagged. Some hours later, he returned and continued his attacks, then finally untied her. Madonna then fled the house and ran to her car. Penn ran after her and was banging on the windows of her Thunderbird while she spoke to police on her mobile phone. Fifteen minutes later, she staggered into the sheriff’s office.
most people still don’t know about this.

I always feel like I have a lot of words to throw at the whole sugar skull/día de los muertos thing and at people who appropriate the most visual aspects of the celebration. But, every time I try to crystalize my thoughts, all I can think about is how somber and serious the holiday was for my family.
I don’t think people understand what the holiday feels like. Every time I see a jarrón with marigolds or a sugar skull, I just think about my great grandmother talking about the kids she lost or about my grandmother crying over my grandfather who died before I was born.
Yeah, the bread is tasty and the altars are beautiful. But, these kids never had to go to the cemetery and clean the headstones. You know? They don’t understand why the holiday is there for, to honor and remember the people we had lost—or who we never had the time to know.
It disgusts me that I’ll never have those feelings again and that I won’t have that day to reflect. Since it’s become a fad, I don’t even want to think about it. It’s just another thing people in this country have taken from me and from my memory.
reblogging because for some reason, Dia de los Muertos has become the new hipster holiday and people need to realize why painting your face like a skull is cultural appropriation if you are white.
I blame world of warcraft.
MY MOM JUST GOT HERSELF ARRESTED AGAIN I AM DYING OMG
hahaha ok so she’s been missing since the 9th, she took the cat with her and disappeared. my dad just called me and told me that she’s in jail in arkansas. apparently she stole a car in memphis, drove to arkansas, and got herself arrested. i can’t even
he didn’t say anything about the cat though and i forgot to ask until i hung up. i hope that little guy is ok.
but seriously this is fucking hilarious, this is like the billionth time in the past few years that she’s gotten arrested. now she officially has more than one count of domestic violence, accusations of child abuse, and a CAR THEFT on her record. if my dad doesn’t get custody of my brother now i will officially lose all faith in the american court system.
hahahahhaahhaahha oh my god she is such a dumb CUNT HAHAHDKLASDFLDKG
