Thought you couldn’t hate Obama any more than you already do? This is absolutely absurd. Just the mere fact that he would ask (order) a Marine to do this shows he has no concept of respect. Think this is photoshopped? I got it from the CNN website. It’s completely true. Do a web search and you’ll see multiple sources. This President is absolutely worthless.
Title ten of the Armed Forces US Code says that members of the military do what is asked of them by their Commander in Chief. The man next to them is the Prime Minister of Hungary. It would be bad show to let the rain fall on the head of a visiting diplomat, and any Marine on Presidential duty is honored to be there. This is not about the umbrellas, it is about treating visiting dignitaries with honor and respect. To only have an umbrella over the head of Prime Minister Orban would be a sign of superiority or strength over the visiting PM. The president did the correct thing in the situation by showing enough respect for his fellow leader and giving them both an equal platform.
Y’all need to stop freaking the fuck out over stupid shit like umbrellas.
also he didn’t think he even needed the umbrella, thus resulting in this picture of him checking if it was even raining even more aka my favorite picture of him ever:
Speaking as the son of a former Army officer, OP’s post is even more disrespectful towards the Marine in the photo - and the US military in general - than it is towards the President. It shows that literally the only part of being in the military OP has respect for is the part that involves killing others and that is not the biggest part of the military by a long shot and is not the part of military service most members joined for. People join the military to serve the nation, and part of that is stuff like this. There is a reason active duty military do not and are not supposed to discuss their opinions of a President during that President’s term. The President is the Commander in Chief regardless of who they actually are. Republican, Democrat, third party, no longer existent party: it does not matter. Being art of the White House guard and the Presidential detail, especially when a foreign dignitary or leader is present, is one of the biggest honors in the military.
But it’s a fucking umbrella, so complaining about it in the first place is massively moronic.
OP postin’ some Fox news Facebook level shit.
Umbrellas are serious business
if people get offended by girls not wearing bras because their nipples poke through their shirt then we should require every boy in the world to wear bras too i am so tired of seeing man nipples
Today at work, I wore this pretty form-fitting outfit because well… because I can. And a woman, probably in her mid to late 30s asks me… “Can I ask you a question without purposely trying to offend you?” Of course I said she could and then she asks me… “Do you feel comfortable in what you’re wearing?” and I kind of confusedly answered that I did feel comfortable in what I was wearing. She then asked “Even though it’s extremely… form-fitting?” And I said “Especially because it’s form fitting.” She then told me that she thought I looked beautiful but asked how I was so comfortable, as a full-figured woman, wearing something tight. And I simply answered “Because I love my body. I love my shape. I love who I am. It took me a long time to be okay with what kind of body I have but now I love it and if I choose to change it, I can. If I don’t choose to, then I won’t. Sure, I have things I don’t like about myself but overall I can’t say I’m disappointed in the way I look or feel in the clothes I choose to wear.”
She then called me her “She-Hero” and bought an outfit just like the one I was wearing.
This is why I love my job.
THAT WAS NOT THE ENDING I WAS EXPECTING A+
That just made me smile so much
Secret: Hugo is actually on of my favorite characters from OFF. Especially when I imagine an AU where he survives and grows up to be furious and fanatical, just like his daddy.
Oh, and he stays bald because…his head is more fun to draw that way, honestly. Shut up.
look at that
Bahahahaha the kilometer one
Yes we know he was right and we were wrong but HE SHOULD HAVE RESPECT FOR AUTHORITY EVEN IF IT’S DEMONSTRABLY WRONG
Hold on just a tick. Listen, I’m Jewish, so I’m perfectly capable of understanding that what he did was just…..well, there are no words for it. But let’s not round it up to simply Jews that got killed. It was six million people that died in those camps, not just Jews. Did you know that homosexuals were sent there, too? Yeah, I’m sure you did. They had to wear special little symbols on their clothes. Do you know what it was? It was a pink triangle.
It was six million PEOPLE.
But you let that roll over in your mind for a while and you are going to forever see this man as a monster, but that’s not what he was. He was someone who thought he was truly doing something right for his nation, no matter how shitty he was doing it. Believe me when I say that I don’t like him. I really don’t. My grandfather’s brothers died in those camps, and my grandfather escaped to Spain, then to Mexico. He was lucky.
This is not a monster holding hands with a little girl.
This is Adolf Hitler, a man, holding hands with a little girl.
Yeah. It’s fucking scary. It really is. Do you know why?
It’s because you’re seeing that he wasn’t, in fact, a monster. You’re seeing in this picture that he was a man. He was a man, and that’s really the saddest part of it all.
As a History major who specializes in the history of early modern Europe, I’ve studied a lot of dictators in detail, not just Hitler. The number one mistake anyone could ever make in history is making the assumption that only inhuman monsters are capable of doing terrible things.
Stop dehumanizing Hitler just so you can reassure yourself that “normal” humans aren’t capable of doing bad things. Hitler liked children and dogs, he was a vegetarian and he cried like a little boy when his mother died. I’m not saying he was a good, innocent person, but when you stop attributing human characteristics to historical figures like Hitler, it’s how you overlook people just like him in real life, and it’s how people like him end up back in power.
That’s the real truth: Human Beings are scarier than any ‘monsters’ out there because we’re all born blank slates and BECOME our legacy.
This is the best post I’ve seen in a while.

perfect couples cosplaying ;-; <3<3<3<3<3
The amount of time it has taken me to get to this is obscene. My deepest apologies.
For greasevwizard, a rather more in-depth character reference for my thetastuck AU. Because Cronus is my absolute favorite and I may spend 80% of my thetastuck plot bunnying time on him. >w>;;; To start, I cannot state this enough, he is literally Harry Potter. Wwizard (ancestor Eridan) is fucking Dumbledore. Like jfc, I’m not even kidding. BACK STORY TIME! At a very young age, Wwizard gave Cronus his journals and told him “don’t repeat my mistakes” and died. :0 And so Cronus has all this info about their ancestors and is burdened with that knowledge and the task of not letting his friends kill each other. He becomes the auspistice for everyone. Naturally, everyone hates him for his meddling. He ultimately fails, though. He was doing pretty well up until the Dark Carnival, but co-killing Damara didn’t make him feel any better that he let 8 of his friends die in one go. He may or may not spiral into a depressive state (in all fairness, so does Meenah). He spent his whole life basically trying to be the Wwizard, magic and everything, but all that got him were dead friends and disdain. Enter: Roxy. Materail things happen and she p much pulls him out of his slump and for the first time he’s actually happy.
And then they get to the new session and terrible things happen. :D
But yeah, I’m sure no one cares about all that, I just have a lot of Cronus feels. And yes, he keeps changing his wardrobe for LOOOOVE~ >3>’ First to show off that fact that YES, he, CRONUS AMPORA, has a GIRLFRIEND. XD Then he starts wanting to be human, in order to live happily ever after with said girlfriend. Also, yes, he does just kind of stumble into Grease and fall in love with the aesthetics. He tries to get cigarettes but Roxy forbids it on the grounds that addiction is no joke and, “after you helped me kick my alcohol problem I’m not going to let you do this to yourself,” so she does the 4Kids things and gets him lollipops instead. Lollipops are badass, 4Kids!Sanji was the best, shut up. XD;;
Anyways, sorry I took so long to draw the ref, and sorry for rambling so extensively. If anyone ever wants to know anything about theta!Cronus, just ask. I will be more than happy to answer. >w>
I AM LOSING MY SHIT OVER HERE, THIS IS ABSOLUTELY PERFECT. BLESS YOU, APPLE FOR MAKING THETASTUCK CRONUS SO GREAT, OH LORD. AND ERIDAN. ERIIIDDANNNN.
