Before this starts, I’d like to give you all a heads up - this is me writing about my depression, anxiety, and burnout, which means there’ll be talk of suicidal ideation and a pair of attempts. If that’s dangerous for you and you’d still like to read this, please, be safe. Have comfort and safety close by.
weedguy420boner: Second Term Obama: No Gods, No Master -
Well, it’s happened. Obama has won a second term as president. His election in 2008 was bad enough, but at least it had a silver lining: it was his first time in the Oval Office. Everyone knows that first time presidents won’t rock the boat. They follow the rules of the ROAD. I’m not internet…

If the mouth of the Savannah river has to be cleared out, let the sea-going navigation which is benefited by it, bear the burden. So with the mouths of the Alabama and Mississippi river. Just as the products of the interior, our cotton, wheat, corn, and other articles, have to bear the necessary rates of freight over our railroads to reach the seas. This is again the broad principle of perfect equality and justice, and it is especially set forth and established in our new constitution. —

Republican candidate Richard Mourdock’s comments that pregnancies from rape are a “gift from God,” were outrageous to those of us that actually believe a woman should control her own body, and that abortion is not murder. But they weren’t actually surprising or shocking to anyone that believes…
