Reagan will be judged harshly, eventually.
As my die-hard conservative Fox-watching Nixon-supporting father-in-law told me recently, Ronald Reagan was likely the most morally bankrupt person to occupy the White House during his eight decades on earth.
Of course, he paid attention to what Reagan was doing in the eighties, from funding Latin American genocide, to dumping crack cocaine in LA, to illegally selling Iran weapons, and so on. Not many others have paid attention, even still.
That other great idol of conservatives the world over, Margaret Thatcher, also opposed economic sanctions against South Africa, sanctions that eventually pressured the South African government, led by F.W. De Klerk, to release Mandela unconditionally in 1990, after 27 years imprisonment. It’s an inconvenient fact for conservatives who are now tripping over each other to pay tribute to Mandela that their heroes, Reagan and Thatcher, bucked the global tide of anti-apartheid sentiment, and were quite happy to have Mandela die in jail. If there was ever an instance of being on the wrong side of history, it’s opposing the release of Nelson Mandela, whom many people now regard as the Man of the Century.

The PM and Obama have met lots of times now …
… which is probably why they’re seated next to one another. I mean, come ON, obviously it’s not some random man-stealing bimbo that was placed next to the President of the United States.
But the media loves to pin women up against each other, so for good measure here’s a picture of all three smiling together and one of the two women alone…
Please, signal boost this and stop the idiotic scenario where these two intelligent and powerful women are being reduced to petty women that care only about the attention of a man - even if it is the President of the United States.
The more you know. Now, go forth an have an AWESOME day!
Kinda sad that this post is even necessary.
read an amazing article on how the reception of Michelle Obama’s “disapproving look” reinforces the stereotype about the “mad black woman”. It’s pretty annoying how people simplify her and put her in a box
french people are so hardcore they eat pain for breakfast
this pun was wasted on you all
Taye Diggs and Idina Menzel are separating.
Part of me is upset but an even bigger part of me is excited that I now have a chance
