Salutations! I'm Jessica, and this is the blog of a nutty, slightly obsessive, bisexual, teenaged, feminist, fannish, internet activist. Therefore, you ought to expect lots of LGBTQ+, feminism, anti-racism, shipping, and general fandom nonsense, including but not limited to Harry Potter, Star Trek (TOS, Reboot, and DS9), Merlin, Psych, Community, Elementary, various other incarnations of Sherlock Holmes, Avatar: The Last Airbender, Homestuck, The Avengers, Doctor Who, Supernatural, cats, other assorted adorable animals and various other things which have a tendency to be shiny, squeeable and/or very, very gay. Any oppressed group I'm a member of, I'm an activist for, and any that I'm not, I try to be an ally for. Please, call me out on my bullshit whenever it occurs.
I'm a seventeen year old high school graduate (skipped a grade, woohoo), and I want to be a novelist or a geneticist. Perhaps both, but probably not at the same time.
I tag the shit out of everything, so 1) my blog is apparently an awesome reference point, and 2) I really won't mind if you need me to tag something for Tumblr Savior.
I don't do followbacks unless you're fandom or SJ and I like what you post. If you want me to check out your blog, go ahead and ask. I might not follow you (I tried to keep the number of people I follow pretty low), but I will at the very least look at it!
Currently single. ;)
You can follow me on Twitter, too! I post a lot of stuff on there that never makes it here.
Talk to me! I get bored easily; you can help alleviate that boredom! :D I'm most likely to be active between the hours of ten AM and ten PM, Eastern Standard Time.
Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan intend to end Medicare, replacing it with a private voucher scheme. So, naturally, the first campaign commercial from the Republican ticket since the weekend’s announcement is an attack ad going after President Obama on … Medicare
In this painfully ridiculous spot, the voiceover tells voters Obama “cut $716 billion dollars from Medicare … to pay for Obamacare.” The ad goes on to say, “So now the money you paid for your guaranteed healthcare is going to a massive new government program that’s not for you.”
What’s remarkable is just how spectacularly dishonest Romney is. It’s like he heard about an award that goes to the lyingest liar who ever lied in the history of liars, and Romney’s so eager to win the award that he’s becoming a parody of himself.
Like… yeah, Obama cut some money from Medicare to pay for Obamacare. Specifically, he cut spending to notoriously wasteful programs and replaced them with more efficient ones. Oh no! Obama decreased wasteful government spending AND didn’t screw anyone over in the process! Evil!
