As you can see Republican Presidents have issued far more executive orders than Obama. More importantly, one can not overturn the executive order of a dictator however Congress may attempt to overturn an executive order by passing legislation (a bill) that opposes the order. However, the President can veto that bill, and Congress would then need to override that veto to pass the bill.  Also, the Supreme Court can declare an executive order to be unconstitutional. If Obama, or any US President, was in fact a dictator, overturning wouldn’t be an option. 

This is called Reductio ad Hitlerum (or “Playing The Nazi Card”). It’s a informal fallacy where someone attempts to disprove,  discredit or  invalidate someone’s point by comparing it to a view that Hitler or the Nazi party would also hold.  An example would be animals. We know as historical fact that Hitler loved animals however Reductio ad Hitlerum would argue that animals are bad because Hitler loved them. 

This political trick has been with us since the 1950s and it’s sad that people are not only using it today but that many are falling for it. Actually, it’s quite despicable.

She basically made the video I was gonna make lol to a Tee. Look at this. And stop trying to tear others down to lift yourself up.

It scares me how many people have seen this

I stopped watching after she said there were no black hairstyles.

So the NYPD is at it again. This time they have choked a 7 month pregnant Black woman. Her offense? She was grilling in front of her house. This is over a damn grill.

Right on cue, people are already talking about the NYPD needing sensitivity training etc. They don’t get it. This is what the NYPD does. It’s not about a lack of training. They are looking for any reason to inflict fear and escalate a situation so they can use as much force as possible. I don’t know how many more incidents need to happen to make it click in their heads that the police is terrorizing Black communities. How much more ridiculous do these situations need to get? You tell me what warrants choking a pregnant woman for grilling in front of her house. Damn whether that is not allowed or not. You know what you do in that situation as a cop? You give her a citation or a fine. Not the NYPD, they choke and assault pregnant Black women.

Oh no, misogynistic boys don’t want to date me

Oh no, being in a relationship isn’t the most important aspect of my life

Whatever shall I do

Um I am also a raging feminist and I’m engaged to a rather nice fellow so I don’t get her point.

I can safely say that he is the realist president that we have ever had.

my fall look today is winged eyeliner, plum lipstick, and a look on my face like i’m fucking your boyfriend and can’t wait for you to find out.

My fall look is simple liner with bold lashes, burgundy lipstick, a gleam in my  eyes that let’s men know that I’ll suck their dick, their money out of their bank accounts, and the souls right out of their bodies.

this is my favorite post on tumblr currently
