Wish I could say the same thing about someone else…
In the words of Kathy Griffin’s mom, Maggie – “Tip it!”
The Australia and New Zealand Banking Group released a simple, beautiful, and touching ad campaign in support of the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras. Check it out below.
When they call you a snowflake, remind them of a this:
Put a lot of snowflakes together and you get a snowball, perfect for throwing back at. Put even more together and you get an avalanche, a force so powerful it takes nearly everything down in its path.
And when they call you a libtard, remember this:
What did liberals do that was so offensive to the Republican party? I’ll tell you what they did. Liberals got women the right to vote. Liberals got African-Americans the right to vote. Liberals created social security and lifted millions of elderly people out of poverty. Liberals ended segregation. Liberals passed the Civil Rights Act, the Voting Rights Act, Liberals created Medicare. Liberals passed the Clean Air Act, and the Clean Water Act. What did Conservatives do? They opposed every one of those programs. Every one. So when you try to hurl the word ‘liberal’ at my feet, as if it were dirty, something to run away from, something that I should be ashamed of, it won’t work, because I will pick up that label and wear it as a badge of honor.
I know a lot of you are praising Senators Murkowski and Collins for voting against Betsy DeVos but bear in mind they both sat on the Senate committee and voted to move her nomination to the full Senate. They both admitted they planned to vote no during a full Senate vote even before her nomination moved out of committee. If she was so bad that these two voted against her in the full Senate – where was your conscience and tenacity during the committee hearings and vote?
Don’t be fooled – these two knew none of their GOP colleagues would vote against DeVos in the full Senate. Their committee vote will be forgotten. They now get to go home to their constituents, blame VP Pence for the final outcome, and say “See, look what we did to stand up against her!”
