One headline perfectly captures the U.S. media’s Israel problem

Cairo-based photojournalist Mosa’ab Elshamy caught this headline from the Monday edition of the Baltimore Sun that seems to capture Palestinian sympathizers’ frustration with mainstream media coverage of the ongoing conflict in Gaza. While Israeli combat fatalities are given up-front attention, Palestinian fatalities are brushed off as “others.”

Just merely mentioning Israel or questioning in any way the effectiveness or humanity of Israel’s policies is not the same thing as being pro-Hamas.

 Advice he’d give a 12-year-old version of himself"It might sound oversimplified, but I’d say, ‘Shhh.’ It’s so funny how noisy my brain is - it’s what it does, it makes thoughts. And the problem is, I think in most of our lives the root of suffering is listening to that brain noise and actually identifying with it as if it’s who you are. That’s just the noise your brain makes. And more often than not, it probably doesn’t have much to say that’s going to help you. I’ve felt my best are the moments that I’ve been able to pull that plug and say, ‘Chris … shhh … shhh.’ And it’s not quitting, it’s not giving up, it’s not washing your hands of the thought, it’s rising above it. All the time I’ve spent suffering as a result of brain noise, hours of my life wasted. So that’s what I’d say: ‘Shhh.’"

Girl in a country song

How in the world did it go so wrong?

Like all we’re good for is looking good for

you and your friends on the weekend, nothin’ more

We used to get a little respect

Now we’re lucky if we even get

To climb up in the truck, keep our mouth shut, ride along

And be the girl in a country song

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAH

Sorry….kind of

isn’t captain hook and his crew suppose to be a lost boys who escaped and that’s why he’s trying to kill peter pan

…what the actual fuck

I NEVER TRUSTED PETER PAN

nah everything in Peter Pan was fucked up. 

Tinkerbell and her fairy buddies were having an orgy when they found baby Peter. Tinks also extremely jealous, tricking one of the Lost Boys into shooting Wendy in the fucking chest.

Peter’s also crazy omnipotent. Like, he “make believes” he’s a doctor, and heals Wendy. When he’s hungry, he pretends to eat imaginary food and his stomach actually gets fuller.

He’s also a dick. He would teach children how to fly but never how to stop, so they’d fly for months on straight without rest or break, and they couldn’t sleep either or they’d stop flying. And when one of Wendy’s brothers actually fell asleep and plummeted into the ocean, Peter laughed his ass off. He only saved him when Wendy begged him too.

okay but that’s the point of Peter Pan. It’s not supposed to glorify never growing up, it’s supposed to show kids why growing up is not only good, but necessary otherwise they’d end up as fucked up as Peter. He never matured, never learned right from wrong, he never listened to his parents because - according to Peter - he ran away as an infant.It’s a tale to teach children that listening to their parents and growing up is good. As far as Tinker Bell goes, if you actually read Peter Pan you would know that fairies only feel one emotion at a time and they feel that emotion very strongly so the orgy? lust. Trying to kill Wendy? Jealousy. She embodies the seven deadly sins and what happens if you let your emotions get the best of you. (And as far as the new fairies series of films making her nicer it’s because you only see the jealous side of her in Peter Pan and you see other sides of her in the series because those movies are about her).
Rant over, you can go back to your regularly scheduled blogging now.

So if Peter Pan shows up in your window. Stab him in the fucking chest kids. You have school tomorrow

Reblogging because I believe this will be important to the Once Upon a Time fandom tomorrow.

It’s more complicated than that. Peter is kind of a tragic hero. He chooses not to grow up, he knows he is incomplete.

I mean, he cut off Hook’s hand because he thought it was a game. He clearly doesn’t know right from wrong. He also only knows the unconditional love of a mother to a child, which is why he thinks everyone wants to be his mother. He also switches sides in a fight just for fun, kill pirates for fun, and “thins” out the Lost Boys when they can’t fit in the tree anymore.

But, like, it wasn’t a cautionary tale to tell you to listen to your parents, it’s a story about death and youth. Why can’t Peter grow up? One of the popular theories is that it’s because he’s dead. J.M. Barrie’s older brother died when Barrie was little and he dressed up in his brother’s clothes to please his mom. His mom - who was always distant, whose love Barrie craved like Peter craves a mom - started crying and said something like “At least my baby will never grow up” and that idea stuck with Barrie forever. Then, as an adult, it’s believed he never slept with his wife because Barrie was just a kid. He was Peter Pan. He was too innocent for that. He befriended the Llewelyn-Davies boys and based Peter Pan off of them and their games. (Fun fact: The boy Peter Pan was named after, Peter Llewelyn-Davies, threw himself under a train). There was also a bunch of stuff about Barrie being in love with The Llewlyn-Davies boys’ mother, but that’s not important here.

People think Peter’s dead because he literally cannot return home. He tried and the window was barred and his parents had replaced him with another baby. Why? Probably because they had lost Peter to the flu. Why does Peter come in through the window? Because of the joke “I once had a bird names Enza. I opened up the window and ‘influenza’.” Because lots of babies died back then form the flu. The Lost Boys are children who fell out of their prams. Odds are babies could not survive falling out of their prams. Peter is liked the pied piper ferrying the souls of young children to the neverland/afterlife. Barrie believed that all children were “gay and heartless” but he didn’t think that was a bad thing.

Also, Hook and his crew are not old lost boys trying to kill Peter. Hook was once a British gentlemen (hinted at to be associated with Charles II and attended Elton) and he is afraid of growing old. His biggest fear is growing old and dying - that is why his nemesis is the embodiment of eternal youth. That is why the crocodile that chases him swallowed a clock and ticks. That is why when Peter finally decided “It’s Hook of me this time” the crocodile has stopped ticking and Peter started (he’s trying to trick them into thinking he’s the croc). At that moment - Peter is time and time has ran out for Hook.

Also, it’s not so much that Peter is omnipotent. All kids basically are in the Neverland. Like, it states that the island looks different to every kid because it’s the land of their dreams and stuff. Also, the island legit freezes when Peter leaves and thaws when he comes back. He’s been there so long he’s not human anymore - but fey. (keep in mind being fey isn’t good, just chaotic neutral). Peter even secretes pixie dust now. The island is so fine tuned with him because he’s one of the only people that stay, that it caters to him. Most likely any child that stayed as long as he did would become omnipotent to an extent.

As for Tinker Bell, the above stated is true. Fairies are so tiny they can only have one emotion at a time - “Tink wasn’t all bad” - and they also have really short lifespans so, like, Tinker Bell isn’t even that important to Peter Pan. He forgets all about her and Hook by the time Wendy is grown up.And the orgies thing is because in the legends fey are known for their revelries. 

And it wasn’t so much that Peter was a dick, he just doesn’t know when to stop. He’s a child. He doesn’t know right from wrong. He doesn’t know when to stop playing -cutting Hooks hand off was a game to him. He also has the memory of a child, so odds are he just forgot to teach kids how to stop flying or how to imagine food, etc. He is just carefree, like all children. Everything is a game to him, because he never learned anything else.

But like, no, Peter Pan is not a cautionary tale. Barrie loved his character and the story and brought up a lot of good things in it. He wrote Peter as an exaggeration of a cocky overconfident boy, but, like, Peter wasn’t afraid of death. It says “he felt scared, yet he felt only one shudder run through him when any other person would have felt scared up until death. With his blithe attitude towards death, he says, “To die will be an awfully big adventure”.” and with that Barrie is showing us both a naivety and bravery we possess as children but lose as adults and is basically telling us that we shouldn’t let that go. Like, the point is growing up is inevitable but you don’t have to lose everything.

And so yeah….I’m really passionate about Peter Pan.

If Obamacare Opponents Win Their Latest Lawsuit, Here’s Who Loses

thepoliticalfreakshow:

On Tuesday, two conservative judges essentially decided to defund Obamacare, ruling that the 36 states with federally-run insurance marketplaces can’t extend tax credits to help their residents purchase health care because of a technicality in the way the law is worded. Although it’s not the final word on the matter, the Halbig v. Burwell decision does represent asetback to the health reform law.

Now, the case will likely head to the full U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, and could eventually make its way up to the Supreme Court. There are several reasons to be optimistic that Halbig won’t actually survive, particularly because Democrats have a 7-4 majority on the DC Circuit. But it’s important to remember that supporters of the case are pushing for a policy change that would have catastrophic results for Americans across the country. Here’s what will happen to the insurance industry if Halbig wins:

Almost 90 percent of Obamacare enrollees in states with federal marketplaces will lose their tax credits.

According to the Department of Health and Human Services, 87 percent of the Obamacare enrollees in the states that would be impacted by the Halbigdecision are currently relying on federal subsidies to help them afford the cost of their plan. But that financial assistance would disappear if the case is approved. That number rises even higher in some states with higher rates of poverty; in Mississippi, for instance, 94 percent of the people who signed up for Obamacare could be affected.

Premiums in those states could increase by more than 75 percent.

recent analysis by the consulting firm Avalere Health calculated that the cost of health care would increase by an average of 76 percent in the 36 states that would no longer be allowed to extend tax subsidies under Halbig. That will make insurance simply too unaffordable for many of the low-income Americans who were supposed to benefit from health reform. In some states, premiums could jump by nearly $400, according a recent analysis by Greg Sargent.

The average person with the cheapest plan on a federal marketplace would have to spend a quarter of their income on insurance.

Obamacare intends to limit how much money Americans have to spend on their insurance, and tax subsidies are precisely the mechanism that the law uses to accomplish that goal. But without those subsidies, the people in the 36 states affected by Halbig would return to an insurance industry that locks them out of affordable health care. According to MIT health economist Jon Gruber, the average person who buys a bronze plan — the cheapestinsurance option — would be forced to devote 24 percent of their income to cover the premiums for that plan.

The number of uninsured Americans would increase by about 6.5 million.

Altogether, millions of Americans will see their premiums rise if federal marketplaces can’t provide tax subsidies anymore. Because so many of them won’t be able to foot a higher monthly bill for their Obamacare plans, they’ll likely be forced to drop their new health insurance. According to Gruber’s projections, eliminating financial assistance in the 36 states with federal marketplaces would swell the ranks of the uninsured by anestimated 6.5 million people.

Obamacare premiums as a whole would be sent into a “death spiral.”

If so many people drop their health insurance because it’s suddenly become unaffordable, Obamacare’s marketplaces likely will be left with an unbalanced pool of enrollees that are disproportionately older and sicker. That will lead insurers to raise their premiums even further to make up for their lost revenue and cover those costly beneficiaries. According to a brief filed in opposition to Halbig by several economists, that would result in a “death spiral” that would ultimately put affordable insurance out of reach for more than 99 percent of the people who are currently eligible for subsidies in the federal exchanges.
