I just can’t get over this music video! It’s too freaking fun! The animation and video are great and it’s super hilarious.
Everybody knows I have two cats; Oswin and Rory. I love them both of course but for different reasons. Both of them are adorable and show love.
With Rory he gets very clingy at times but I have the love of a kitty who sees me as mama. Rory is a great cat, but once he has had enough love he’s off to find more kitty shenanigans.
Oswin is very different. Oswin is a companion kitty. Oswin loves to just sit and hang out with you. It doesn’t have to be cuddling, sometimes he’s just napping in the same room as you. Oswin knows when I’ve had a bad day too. He’ll just follow me around and nudge his head into my leg or hand until I start petting him.
The only thing is people don’t get to see a lot of Oswin’s personality. He isn’t as social as Rory. Rory loves people and being loved by everyone; I always call him a little slut. Oswin hides when people come by. He’s scared of loud noises and usually the general outdoors, but sometimes he surprises me by trying to go out through the windows. Windows that are on the second story…
So this is a difficult topic of discussion for most so just a warning right now: This post is highly controversial and political. And about abortion…
Okay so for starters my attention was drawn to this topic because of a post on Facebook I saw about Bill Nye and something about abortion and science. Obviously I haven’t even read it yet. But the article had something to do what pro choicer should say to pro lifers. I am a pro choicer.
But that’s not what this is about…I’ve been wondering this for a little while. I don’t understand why pro lifers feel the way they do. I understand the thought that yes another potential life is being taken. But my maybe not so true but slightly correlating thought is that most pro lifers are against welfare and government support. I know for a fact that if I, a young female who has a fulltime job and whom is trying her best to be an independent adult, were to become pregnant and I were to keep the baby I would can guarantee I would need government assistance.
To clarify I am not degrading or against families or individuals who require government assistance. I am however agreeing that the assistance money does have to come from taxes (it’s a basic fact). I am actually very pro government assistance programs. Having that available to you can make a huge difference in a life.
I also understand that not all people who have an abortion are thinking quite like myself. I know there are people who misuse their right to choose that option. I do not support abortion as a means of constant birth control.
So I suppose the real question when deciding if you should be pro choice to pro life is which do you care about more? Life or money?
I am so outraged by people right now. I’ve seen many posts on the internet about people being harassed by such small minded people. Just because Trump won the election does not by any means make it okay to show such hate to others. Violence and disrespect will not prove anything! Stories of people having their religious ornaments like the hijab being ripped from them and being threatened because of their faiths is unacceptable! I am not a religious person but it is the same damn thing as someone saying a Catholic person cannot wear their cross or any other religious group having any of their ornaments. (I say Catholic because it is a prevalent religious group in my area.) I cannot believe this is happening in a country that was founded on religious freedom! Acts like this go beyond a person’s freedom of speech. It’s inexcusable. I don’t care what religion you are or what sexual preference or what race you are if some harassment of this kind happens to you do not stand for it! Make it public. I know it is scary to call the police because you don’t know what reaction you will receive but I know there are others out there like myself you are sickened that this is happening to people in this country.
If you are really going to hate people because of their faith then maybe look in the mirror. Even if you are like me and have no religion you have a right to that! Same as the people being harassed and persecuted right now! Things like this have happened before and you know what happened as a result of these prejudges? Genocide and war. I am sure no one wants there to be a Civil War again. I get it, you want change and that’s understandable. But this is not the way to get it. A lot of people are scared of what they don’t understand, don’t be scared to learn from your fear. Learn about what you are scared of and realize that not every aspect of something you don’t understand is evil or threatening. In a time of knowledge being at your fingertips there is no excuse for people to remain ignorant. Do the research and live better because of it. Not every person is evil, they are just trying to survive just like everyone else.
I am very sad to call myself a resident of the United States right now. I am highly disappointed with the people of this country; the fact that in the very beginning of this election that we knew that the choices would be between Trump and Hilary should have been our wake up call. So very and deeply saddened by these people that I call my peers.
Just this morning I was shocked that a person I called a close friend could post something so hateful on Facebook. I couldn’t believe it. She said to the effect that she couldn’t believe people voted to raise minimum wage and called us all idiots because now she would need a second job to buy food. A little background on this, I went to college with this girl. She was the sweetest, nicest person I knew there. She is now a registered nurse. I unfriended her because I don’t want to see that kind of hatred on my Facebook. But people don’t realize this doesn’t truly take effect until 2020. This girl went on to say this new law was catering to people to lazy to become educated to get a real job. I can tell you right now I would gladly go back to school and finish my educate if I had the money for it. Unfortunately my parents aren’t my personal bank. I have to work for my place.
I know nothing can really happen just yet with the results of this election. I pray that either Mr. Trump makes a statement that he was just doing a publicity stunt to show how much power he is has on this country or that when he is actually in office he realizes he can’t just write things into law (he has to get them past Congress and the Supreme Court first). But I also fear that soon this country that boasts so much freedom for all will soon become something ugly and restraining. I hope that even though he speaks much like Hitler that Mr. Trump isn’t going to try to make this country something feared and horrific.
I know for the next four or however much time it is I will be wishing Bernie had won…
With the election growing ever closer I decide to take to my blog for the first time in a long time. I hope the people of this country will make the best decision they can. But I don’t know if that will happen. I know my opinion probably isn’t worth much, but I hope it may bring some insight to others who are still unsure. In the beginning I was a Bernie Sanders supporter, but that doesn’t seem to be an option now.
I feel that Trump would be a true embarrassment for this country. A sexual pervert who moonlights as a sexual predator, a man whose fortune was founded by becoming a chronic liar and scamming normal people, and a hair piece with more intelligence than he has; not even a choice for me. I think the first final straw for me was when I read in the beginning of the election that Trumps’ plan for our country’s debt was to default on it!
Hilary isn’t much better. I agree with some of her ideas, but after everything from Benghazi to the emails I don’t trust her as far as I could throw her. Yes it would be great if we had a female president, but Hilary has already been in the White House, she’s had her time.
I will be voting instead for Jill Stein since my state is not one of the few that accept Bernie write in’s. She’s second best to Bernie. Why think red or blue when green is an option?
And for most of the country I am sure issues like legalization of marijuana and raising minimum wage will be on your ballot. I know for my county it’s prop 205 and 206. Vote yes. Many people in this country could use the help of both of these issues. I know many people have hesitations on marijuana but if it is taxed and regulated there will be no need for a “black market” for underages or delinquents to use. Minimum wage should really be a no brainer, I know I am sick of working a full time job for barely livable wages.
I just got back from the theater and I just got to say, HOLY FREAKING BALLS! This movie was AWESOME! I loved it so much. Did not disappoint at all. Way awesome!
Okay, so now for the parts that could spoil for some. So SPOILERS!
GO SEE THE MOVIE!!!!!!!!
Okay. I loved how in the end you see how everyone is back in prison and somethings have changed. Dead Shot gets to see his daughter, Killer Crock has a TV and Harley has her espresso machine, oh and Captain Boomerang is now in prison with them (can’t forget that!). I especially love how you find out the Joker isn’t dead. That would have ruined the entire movie for me!
Now down to the acting and characters. I loved Jared Leto as the Joker, duh. The one that surprised me was Will Smith as Dead Shot. That was an awesome performance! I really felt for Dead Shot because Smith made it so real. Margot Robbie AWESOME as Harley Quinn. Her Jersey accent slips here and there but I think it was appropriate. I liked the El Diablo character also, very sad that he sacrificed himself. Katana was super bad ass. I am still having mixed feelings about Flag. Waller was spot on! Dear lord I even hated/respected the woman. Holy crap she’s scary. You’re never really sure what she’s capable of. I wasn’t surprised that Slipknot was killed, shocking. Seeing how I hadn’t heard of him. But it was the only predictable part of the movie, which sucks but still not bad for only one part. Enchantress was very interesting. I had heard of her before but not her brother. To be totally honest I wasn’t sure who was going to be the “bad guy” in this movie. I have been excited for it since I found out about it and I tried very hard to not have any clues to how it would go. Over all though, super AWESOME! I am definitely buying this one.
I loved the back story little changeovers. Those flashback parts were great. I particularly enjoyed the Joker/Harley Quinn parts, but that’s predictable for me. Dead Shot’s flashbacks were great also. Also El Diablo’s story is so heart wrenching, but he is such a great character. I wasn’t sure if I would like him in the beginning, but once Dead Shot makes him open up (use his powers) he reveals that yes, he was a bad guy but he doesn’t want to be anymore. The same goes for Dead Shot. “I don’t want my daughter to think I am a piece of shit.” (That may not be the direct quote…sorry I was too enthralled.)
I am really hoping for a second Suicide Squad, they definitely left it open for one or at least a Joker enthused spin off. But I also went into this movie having not seen Batman Vs. Superman. I am a little against that movie, though now having seen Suicide Squad I am a little curious of what happened. They do reference it in Suicide Squad and now I am a little confused, but I am still considering if I care enough to see it. (I am still very against Affleck being Batman. He played the part well in Suicide Squad, but I am just not ready for that…)
So in the end I loved it! Very awesome and I hope there’s another one!
