oh word?

Anonymous asked: I don't think you understand libertarianism. Libertarians by definition cannot be racist because racism is putting individuals in collective groups whereas libertarians can only view people as individuals. A racist libertarian is an oxymoron.

yoisthisracist:

Hahaha “libertarians can only view people as individuals” hahahahaha, oh, go fuck yourself. You seriously think you can hide behind that bullshit? Guess what, you fuckface, your bankrupt and hilarious philosophy might call for all kinds of bullshit, but NO ONE IS FOOLED by the fact that all your ideas about economics and government just so happen to benefit one group of people more than others.

Look, if you love freedom and no government so much, there are any number of failed states you can move to to have your libertarian paradise. You know why you don’t do that? Because your bullshit theories only work for you when you’re already in a place that inherently favors your group over others. If you aren’t already in first place, with centuries of social and cultural mechanisms in place to keep you there, not so appealing huh.

So, nice try, but not only is “racist libertarian” not an oxymoron, it’s redundant. Get the fuck out of here with that bullshit, you fucking shithead.

Love this guy.

Poachers Attack Beloved Elders of California, Its Redwoods
“It was an unlikely crime scene: a steep trail used by bears leading to a still, ancient redwood grove. There, a rare old-growth coast redwood had been brutally hacked about 15 times by poachers, a chain saw massacre that had exposed the tree’s deep red heartwood.
The thieves who butchered this and other 1,000-year-old arboreal giants were after the burls, gnarly protrusions on the trees that are prized for their intricately patterned wood. Although timber theft has long plagued public lands, a recent spate of burl poaching, with 18 known cases in the last year, has forced park officials to close an eight-mile drive through old-growth forests, the Newton B. Drury Scenic Parkway, at night to deter criminals. More closings are expected.”

1000-year-old Redwoods. So sad.

“New York is an ugly city, a dirty city. Its climate is a scandal, its politics are used to frighten children, its traffic is madness, its competition is murderous. But there is one thing about it - once you have lived in New York and it has become your home, no place else is good enough.”

In another twist to the pay debate, UCB just sent me a check to NOT do improv?!?!?!

Can somebody make sure Shannon, the new Associate AD at UCB, keeps sending me this check? I now depend on it.

This is so damn funny and also how do I get in on this?

We’re doing a project where we ask people: what’s your UCB? We got to talk to Nicole Drespel about Bucky, teaching, and being obsessed right away. 

EO: How’d you find UCB?

ND: I did college improv. Langan Kingsley mentioned the group—it was called Dead Serious at Wellesley College. One of the girls on that team, Kylie, was a super comedy nerd. She talked about UCB. There was one weekend where we went on a trip to New York and were going to UCB, but we got tickets to Saturday Night Live instead. We slept on a sidewalk.

So I didn’t actually go to UCB until a year later on spring break, my senior year of college. My wild spring break was coming home to my parents’ place with a friend of mine, going to ASSSSCAT, and then going to the Bronx Zoo. That was how I spent senior year spring break.

Nicole Drespel is a (my) hero. Didn’t care for the pro-Mayer sentiments though.
