well then it was the other half that i considered neither helpful nor, well, very smart at all

Ye as my president? lol. this whole conversation the entire time has been subconsciously hilarious. but just picture the movie--this is happening because of Ye as a person. and we understand him better than we talk like we do, and that's so dangerous it gave us Trump

Meanwhile, Taylor Swift has finally voiced a political opinion. She doesn't offer any stunning insights or anything, and it's a bit meh that she sticks to cultural issues, but this is an unambiguously great thing to do. She even endorsed 2 specific Democratic candidates in her home state.


Iím writing this post about the upcoming midterm elections on November 6th, in which Iíll be voting in the state of Tennessee. In the past Iíve been reluctant to publicly voice my political opinions, but due to several events in my life and in the world in the past two years, I feel very differently about that now. I always have and always will cast my vote based on which candidate will protect and fight for the human rights I believe we all deserve in this country. I believe in the fight for LGBTQ rights, and that any form of discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender is WRONG. I believe that the systemic racism we still see in this country towards people of color is terrifying, sickening and prevalent.

I cannot vote for someone who will not be willing to fight for dignity for ALL Americans, no matter their skin color, gender or who they love. Running for Senate in the state of Tennessee is a woman named Marsha Blackburn. As much as I have in the past and would like to continue voting for women in office, I cannot support Marsha Blackburn. Her voting record in Congress appalls and terrifies me. She voted against equal pay for women. She voted against the Reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act, which attempts to protect women from domestic violence, stalking, and date rape. She believes businesses have a right to refuse service to gay couples. She also believes they should not have the right to marry. These are not MY Tennessee values. I will be voting for Phil Bredesen for Senate and Jim Cooper for House of Representatives. Please, please educate yourself on the candidates running in your state and vote based on who most closely represents your values. For a lot of us, we may never find a candidate or party with whom we agree 100% on every issue, but we have to vote anyway.

So many intelligent, thoughtful, self-possessed people have turned 18 in the past two years and now have the right and privilege to make their vote count. But first you need to register, which is quick and easy to do. October 9th is the LAST DAY to register to vote in the state of TN. Go to vote.org and you can find all the info. Happy Voting!
🗳😃🌈

i was watching Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan and funny enough it reminded me that science people have been ahead on social politics for a while now too. art people of course, but science people too. Kirstie Alley makes her bigscreen debut playing someone training to be a captain--she's Romulan/Vulcan, so logical with a dash of emotions. woman as a captain. the next captain we see is Paul Winfield, he's black. William Shatner still the white knight but they were saying, all the way back then and not even as a central plot point, there were other possibilities for ship captain.

in terms of smoking cigarettes, it's interesting to me that they decided to take down the sign. this is the reason stated
Quote
The "No Smoking At Anytime On Bridge" sign from the first scene was removed in later bridge scenes when Gene Roddenberry complained that smoking would not exist in the future.
if you have tried to quit smoking, remember what Gene Roddenberry  thought

the initial portion of this post did directly link to the theme in jb's above post, because what i was saying is it's rather ridiculous how long it's taking to square away the basic fact that all people are created equal, i didn't know i'd phrase it that way but look how basic it is. the topic extends beyond politics into literally all of humanity and the fight won't end until the topic is squared away, as it shouldn't, since there's no question that the fight is worth its time and effort, and there's no question the wasted energy and misspent time is coming from the other side. what i think Taylor Swift exemplifies is two things 1 traveling to different parts of the world always helps a person grow 2 there's simply going to be a new perspective from a younger generation--i really think that's brewing, and a lot of the dumb problems we have now will finally be gone from us in our future

LOL

"My eyes are now wide open and now realize Iíve been used to spread messages I donít believe in. I am distancing myself from politics and completely focusing on being creative !!!"

"Fucking dumbass" is the only thing that comes to my mind after someone says: "Candace Owens used me". Especially from the fucking dumbass in chief.

I love 90% of his albums; I have no sympathy left for him. His freedom of thought is a copy/paste of YouTube comments that he thinks he thought himself.

After Fucking Dumbass what comes is: Fucking Tool.

I'm so many people.

Nah, I think there's a real political violence to what he said and his actions and I don't believe in a peaceful protest.
I'm so many people.
