When I’m bored I play with this iPad app
I just can’t with that huge mineral water bottle.

Why does it take more than 20 weeks? Because of all the regulation and economic impediments Republicans have put in place between the point where a woman tests positive for pregnancy and gets an abortion to terminate the pregnancy. Republicans have limited the number of places the procedure can be performed. Republicans have made it so that you have to get a consultation a week in advance, as well as some states having waiting periods. If you make too low of a wage to afford health coverage (meaning you couldn’t afford a birth control pill that would have prevented this pregnancy), you need a sizable amount of time to get the money together not just for the procedure, but if you’re in a small town you’ll need transportation money as well.
Here in Texas, you have to undergo a sonogram and wait another 24 hours for the procedure. The logic, Republicans tell us, is to make sure that the woman has really thought about it before she gets the procedure. Which is straight up insulting. If you don’t think every woman that goes to a Planned Parenthood has given her circumstances a great deal of mature thought, weighed the options and decided carefully, you are out of your living mind.
I’d like to think I could get all of that done in 20 weeks, but I’m a dude, so I really have no clue. As such, I’m pro-choice, because I really shouldn’t make that decision for anyone.

This is to all the people who shop in retail stores, especially clothing ones… PICK UP AFTER YOURSELVES! Seriously, you have no idea how annoying and irritating it is to have to go behind adults or teenagers and pick up stuff you’ve dropped. How hard is it to bend down and place something back on the rack? Also, if you take something from one department and change your mind about getting it, PLACE IT BACK IN THE DEPARTMENT YOU GOT IT FROM!! Don’t be a lazy ass and put it on a random shelf or rack. If you have kids, don’t let them play with the clothes, seriously control you offspring. We only get paid minimum wage, which here is $7.25/hr. That is not enough to be a store clerk, cashier, dressing room attendant, backroom worker, shelf and rack stock person and a maid. Don’t you think?
Once at a GAP I literally asked the girl working dressing rooms “Should I give you the clothes I’ve decided I don’t want?” After reading complaints on here about people leaving messes in dressing rooms, putting stuff back in wrong sections, etc, I thought she would appreciate me asking what to do with these items. No dice. She rolled her eyes and passive aggressively said “I guess you can leave them with me.”
A conservative Twitter hack began harassing me earlier today after I tweeted TX State Sen Wendy Davis thanking her for her support in the Texas Lilly Ledbetter Act, which Gov. Perry vetoed. He sent me this article to back up his unsolicited opinion. He wasn’t very bright; he somehow thought I was asking Sen. Davis to “take a stand” on a bill that she had already voted in favor of.
Anyway, the experiment. I’ve tweeted the article and made it appear that I endorse what it says. Let’s see what kind of replies, if any, I get. If anybody has any hashtag suggestions for getting the post more attention, please chime in!
I like to think that in an alternate Earth, Dan Harmon was fired after season 2 and #Community is a wildly successful show known for reinventing itself every season with a new showrunner who brings a new flavor to the show.
