Voting Law Changes In 2012
EXECUTIVE SUMMARY Over the past century, our nation expanded the franchise and knocked down myriad barriers to full electoral participation. In 2011, however, that momentum abruptly shifted. State governments across the country enacted an array of new laws making it harder to register or to vote. Some states require voters to show government-issued photo identification, often of a type that as...
What twisted people we are. How simple we seem, or at least pretend to be in...– Roberto Bolano (via suvarnadvipa)
lejardinbleu: My gift to you My gift to you will be an abyss, she said, but it will be so subtle you’ll perceive it only after many years have passed and you are far from Mexico and me. You’ll find it when you’ll need it most, and that won’t be the happy ending, but it will be an instant of emptiness and joy. And maybe then you’ll remember me, if only just a little. — Roberto Bolaño

wakeupblackpower: “African-American women’s sexual history in the United States goes back to the auction block. Stripped naked, standing in full view of anyone, black women were on display as objects, slaves, property. They had no rights to their own bodies, so they had to stand there naked, exposed. “What happened on that auction block centuries ago is still unfinished business for...

Anastasia: Each morning, we wake up and experience... →
to-be-anastasia: Each morning, we wake up and experience a rich explosion of consciousness — the bright morning sunlight, the smell of roast coffee and, for some of us, the warmth of the person lying next to us in bed. As the slumber recedes into the night, we awake to become who we are. The morning haze of dreams… reminds me of @AstroLuminary
“somewhere between forever and a lifetime you begin to disappear. You see your love was as temporary as the Kadupul flower only lasting throughout midnight and dying before dawn. I was too blinded by the thought of love that laid lingering on the tip of your fingers like a promise of the sunrise. you caused me to tremble. the Earth opened its soul and held me captive whenever you told me I...

The Case Against Bill Clinton →
prettayprettaygood: Bill Clinton, so the left would have you believe, was an exceptional and progressive President unfairly targeted and abused by the moralistic right. He is, so goes the narrative, an elder statesman to be admired and emulated. Judging by the left’s adoration, one would hardly believe that…

cynicallyjaded: Flirt with fate and abandon your fears. Living safely cheats life, while flirting with fate cheats death. We may not be able to delay the time of our death, but we can delay the decline of our lives. It’s only through abandoning fear and embracing life that we can ever hope to truly live our own…

Lets remember that we aren’t meant to be and stop pretending that we are…lets remember that it all never mattered and this was a dangerous game we were playing
But this is fate...
and fate has a way of changing, recreating, and reshaping what we think we know.
I’ve created a life of fallacies where I’m pretending its okay that I don’t give my feelings a voice. They seem to be running rampage inside of me… this isn’t how its supposed to be…

Over the course of this past year, we’ve gone from two people who make decent jokes to two people who can’t be...

itsabigstory: What do you want? Chocolate or strawberry? Obviously that’s a choice. You choose choco and enjoy it. But do you really think you had an option?

When you go down a path you weren’t meant to; fate wasn’t meant to, you become destructive. This path is unnatural so your body, your life, your conscience, fate is rejecting it until you realize you need to change it. Maybe you realize you need to let go… or let someone go.
