This girl is my 7th grade art teacher’s sister-in-law. She has been missing for a while now. I’d appreciate it if you would PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE signal boost. They’re having a hard time getting this out to the media for help in locating her. It would mean the world to me, my old art teacher, and Stevie’s family if you helped spread this.

“We have received a couple tips that lead us to believe she may be around the Alphabet City area, though nothing concrete has surfaced. ”  info from findsteviebates.com

Check out the website for more information and updates. There is also a donation poll for those who would feel generous enough to donate. Please signal boost this. Please.

Signal boost.

Low-hanging fruit

Man, I love Malaya. I’m not saying every series has to have a Doctor Pulaski or Ensign Ro to rattle some cages, but I’m glad Shortpacked! does.

Guys, hey, guys. Do you remember that time that Coulson called Natasha and she ended up forming the Avengers?  Remember how she did that by digging up Bruce Banner and introducing Steve to him then was the voice of reason when Tony and Steve were bickering and then how she brought Clint back from being mind controlled so that they can be a team? Remember that? Remember how the Black Widow out smarted a god? Remember that time she kept her shit together when the Hulk attacked her, even though she was really scared? Remember when she knocked an alien off his flying scooter and figured out how to drive it despite it being extrateresstrial tech, then got her ass up to the top of Stark Tower, found Loki’s staff and saved the world from being invaded by turning off the machine?

Remember how she was the central character of the whole freaking movie?

Anyone else remember that? I sure do.

I love this post.

My thoughts were, “If you had to cut this thing down to 90 minutes, making it into ‘Black Widow & the Wise-Cracking Dudes with Stupid Clothes’ would be the way to go.”

The Arkansas Republican Party said on Monday that it would no longer provide financial assistance to three candidates who wrote racially insensitive things like slavery was a “blessing in disguise” and all Muslims should be deported.

State Republican Party Chairman Doyle Webb told the Associated Press that the state party would no longer contribute to House candidate Charlie Fuqua, state Rep. Jon Hubbard or Rep. Loy Mauch.

The Arkansas Times reported last week that Hubbard had revealed some of this thoughts on slavery and racial integration in his book, “Letters to the Editor: Confessions of a Frustrated Conservative,” including that “the institution of slavery that the black race has long believed to be an abomination upon its people may actually have been a blessing in disguise” and that school integration had meant that “the white students dropped to the level of black students.”

In 2007 and 2009 letters, Mauch had called Abraham Lincoln a “war criminal” and asserted that “Jesus Christ did condone slavery.”

Fuqua, a former Arkansas state representative, had called for deporting all Muslims from the U.S. in his 2011 book, “God’s Law: The Only Political Solution.”

Arkansas Republican Party pulls funding for candidates who praised slavery

All it took was a week’s worth of public shaming for the Arkansas GOP to finally decide to do the right thing about these racists, whose beliefs were well-known in Republican circles for years.

I remind everyone that John Hubbard’s book has been out for THREE YEARS and the Arkansas GOP had no problem with it whatsoever until it started getting press on liberal journalism sites.

THREE YEARS.
