I’ve been reading my favorite book all night long…

It’s not a real book, so I can’t recommend it to any of you.
The co-authors are relatively unknown.
But it’s a “book” that took years to write.
It’s still in progress, the last update leads me to believe.
It’s one of those rare and beautiful things that makes you smile before you even realize you’re elated. You only notice when your cheeks start to grow sore.
Indeed, it’s most certainly a feel-good read. But it’s everything more.
Whilst reading I embarked on a tour of human emotion: I felt pain, aching, longing. I laughed. And laughed more. I felt humility and humiliation. Shame and security. I felt remorse, but I felt hope and hope and hope.
I was warm at every turn.
I could smell tiny rosebuds, faint in color and scent, and that sent was love, as yet unblossomed.

I hope all of you will find a “book” - a something or anything - that can bring you all these gifts in excess.

Everyone deserves one. Everyone can find one. Maybe you’ll first have to build a bookcase deserving of such a treasure. You’ll get there, and you’ll do it. Because once you know the time is drawing nigh for the point at which the book’s prologue will end, and chapter one will finally…finally…begin, you’ll want everything to be just right. Because your book deserves the best, too.

I have bronchitis. Thanks to the ACA, I was able to get medicine for $0. #ThanksObama

LIES.
that came from taxes I paid.

Well, let my know how much I owe you and I’ll drop a few pennies in the mail. War comes from taxes you paid, and I personally dislike the amount I pay going for that… Maybe we should check “yes” or “no” on our 1040 forms this year for allocation of tax dollars.
I’m sorry you think I’m lying, but I’m not. I qualified for the Medicaid expansion under the ACA, which is partially funded through taxpayer revenue. I don’t think the IRS mailed you a letter saying, “Nah nah nah nah naaaaaaah! This year’s tax dollars went to pay for medicine for poor people mwahahaha!” Who knows? Maybe YOUR portion of tax dollars went to a Hellfire missile that took out a village in Afghanistan. Ooh, how exciting for you!
Comfort yourself with that thought as I use my inhaler, which I would not have been able to afford without the ACA.



#gonna need obamacare to afford treatment for that burn jackass

what the fuck is wrong with Americans who aren’t on board with free healthcare. I’m Canadian and I don’t care that I pay extra taxes so a little boy in Alberta can have open heart surgery, or an elderly man in Nova Scotia can get the heart medication he desperately needs. It’s called taking care of your people. I’m glad I pay so that people can have a good quality of life. It’s called being a decent fucking human being.

This adorable baby elephant was born to a mother who is part of an elite team of critically endangered Sumatran elephants that help protect communities from conflict with wild elephants in Indonesia. She’s nearly 4 months old, growing fast and starting to imitate her mother’s behaviour. Here it looks as though she’s getting to grips with using her trunk! Read more about the fantastic work of WWF-Indonesia’s elephant Flying Squad and the newest addition here: http://bit.ly/wwf-elephant


Benedict Cumberbatch is Kate Moss’s neighbor which means three things: that Benedict Cumberbatch and Jamie Hince are neighbors, that I’m really very angry that I haven’t known this since the dawn of man, and that I don’t have the first clue how to process, let alone handle, this information.
