Mary Fallin, Asshole of the Day for April 15, 2014
by TeaPartyCat (Follow @TeaPartyCat)
Raising the minimum wage has gotten a lot of traction lately. It hasn’t been raised in years, and in a slow economy, many of the people making minimum wage are people who are supporting themselves or family.
Many in the GOP have been opposing an increase to the minimum wage, for various reasons. Though the main one, even if unstated, is that it doesn’t help them and only helps people at the bottom, who they could give two shits about. Often you’ll see some pundit or politician say it doesn’t need to be raised, and will tell how they made minimum wage 40 years ago and did OK, but they refuse to acknowledge that the minimum wage they made was higher, sometimes much higher, when you factor in inflation. Proposals to get the minimum wage to $10.10 or $11.00 are basically raising the minimum wage to catch up with inflation. But that’s math, and as Bill Clinton pointed out in his 2012 convention speech, math isn’t the GOP’s thing these days. They prefer ideology to math.
But Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin isn’t content to just oppose an increase at the state or national level. Instead she forbid municipalities to raise it within their borders, as well as outlawing other things:

At a time when many states and cities are working passing minimum wage increases, Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin (R) has gone in the opposite direction and signed a law banning cities from passing higher wages. The bill also bans them from enacting paid sick days or vacation requirements.

Republicans make a lot of hay about states’ rights and local control. They hate big government. But of course here Gov. Fallin is restricting local choices.
And for what? To keep the working poor poor. Remember, this isn’t about giving benefits to people who don’t work— it’s about allowing local municipalities making laws to make work pay. And she won’t let them.
She also blocked the Obamacare Medicaid expansion, which would have helped many of the working poor receive health insurance that their employers don’t offer. The Medicaid expansion is almost entirely paid for by the federal government, costing her state almost nothing. But she won’t take it to help her own citizens, even though that money will pass through the poor and fund hospitals and clinics.
So, for being so cruel to the working poor that she won’t let other people help them even when it costs her nothing, Mary Fallin is the Asshole of the Day.
It is Mary Fallin's first time as Asshole of the Day, but one of many to be featured on this site for deriding those who make minimum wage.

Coachella is capitalizing on offensive Native American appropriation

Needless to say, many Natives are not fans of the trend. But that hasn’t stopped the festival from capitalizing on the “white kids playing Indian” motif and offering tipi rentals for the low weekend price of … $2,200? Paying rent in a New York City rat hole never sounded so good.

"White kids playing Indian"

Disgusting

Coachella, AKA white girls appropriating Native and Indian culture conference.

Lol @ white chicks “apprecating Native American culture.” I bet any of these white chicks can’t tell you which Native American nations use headdresses (which are SACRED and EARNED) and which nations don’t use them.

I wonder how these white kids would feel about Native Americans going around wearing forged Medals of Honor, or Papal crowns?

A polyamorous rant

umbersol:

When was the last time
Someone said
You’re only allowed to love one parent. Choose wisely.
You’re only allowed to love one pet. Choose wisely.
You’re only allowed to love one child. Choose wisely.
You’re only allowed to love one sibling.
Choose wisely.

So why do people say
You’re only allowed to love one person.
Choose wisely.

Beautifully said.

"Apparently orgasm is the only point where your mind becomes completely empty, you think of nothing for that second. That’s why it’s so compelling, it’s a tiny taste of death. Your mind is void, you have nothing in your head save white light."

Jeff Buckley (via desinercia)

Hmm. Zen Buddhists meditate to stop their thought processes and empty their minds for tens of minutes or hours at a time.

Dad on cultural appropriation. (conversation was in Spanish)

  • Me: Hey Dad, I have a question
  • Dad: Alright, lets see if it's within my reach
  • Me: What do you think of cultural appropriation?
  • Dad: what?
  • Me: Cultural appropriation.
  • Dad: I think you mean acculturation.
  • Me: yeah, I do. But I was using the term the Social Justice Morons use.
  • Dad: It's a necessary part of being human, you can't just keep the one culture all of your life!
  • Me: So how offended would you be if a bunch of white people started speaking Spanish?
  • Dad: Offended? I would be glad, at least they speak my language!
  • Me: What if a white guy made tacos?
  • Dad: what kind of taco? why would I be offended? Did I invent it and patent it?
  • Me: Nope, just an ordinary taco made by a white guy.
  • Dad: Why would I be offended? It would like a German guy getting offended because I grilled a hamburger
  • Me: Well, because it's a Mexican food, it was discovered and is integral to Mexican culture. What if a white person doesn't respect the history of the taco.
  • Dad: When the woman who first created a taco did that, did the Angels descend from heaven with a deed and a copyright form signed by God informing us that only Mexicans can make it?
  • Me: Nope. It's just a taco.
  • Dad: Precisely, it's a taco, eat it. I would actually be happy for that white guy, tacos are pretty good.
  • Me: What if Tyler wanted to celebrate El Dia de Los Muertos? On his own?
  • Dad: Tell him to pace himself the skulls are made of pure sugar.
  • Me: What if he wanted to celebrate El Dia de la Independencia?
  • Dad: Culture is not something handed to you by God to protect and nurse, it's just something that happens to you, and when you think you have it figured out, it changes. That's what cultures do. They change. You know what these people are trying to do, right?
  • Me: Yeah,
  • Dad: They want us all to hate each other and not speak to each other. They want us Mexicans in Mexico, Afro-Americans in Africa, Asians in Asia and none of us talking or being nice to each other. With no resources, no trade, no rights, and only the one language that only we're allowed to speak so that we can't communicate with anyone outside. And that's after they'd kill off all the white people. They're like the KKK, if the KKK didn't have balls.
  • Me: I arrived at the same conclusion.
  • Dad: Make yourself a coffee.
  • Dad:
  • Dad: Just be sure it's Mexican *laughs*

diceman asked:

Set it to the easiest mode dude, and just fuck that level. Get through it and you'll get to some amazing parts that'll make you feel better about the whole game. Some confusing but great bits.

That’s the worst of it - I am in the easiest mode. I just suck at this game, which was entirely doable up to this point, when it just hits this wall. I figure there are so many more genuinely fun games, like Borderlands 2, that I could be playing, instead of banging my head against the wall that is Bioshock Infinite.
