Media: A middle eastern man was seen fleeing the scene of the Boston Marathon bombing.
Middle eastern man: I'm not a huge fan of being blown up, dude.
I keep thinking about the kid who died today in the bombings. I wonder what he liked. I wonder what his hobbies were. I wonder how excited he was to see the race. I wonder if he was looking forward to something, like an upcoming summer trip or maybe a weekend treat. He had no clue he was going to die today. He couldn’t even conceptualize that possibility. I wonder what he could’ve...
a-gypsy-s0ul asked: Why do you think it was a terrorist attack in Boston? Because the MEDIA told you?! I'm sorry - Yes it's tragic. Yes it's *could* be a terrorist attack. But think of who owns the media(corporations. politicians.)& think about what else is going on in our country right now. It's like 9-11. They need to create that patriotic fervor, the false "togetherness" in the...
One of the people killed in the terrorist attack...
Fuck. Seriously. Just fuck.
1-2-3-4-breathe asked: Do you have a source for the media confirmation on the terrorist attack? I live in Boston and can't find confirmation of it.
I always feel a little better when Barack Obama addresses the nation after a tragedy.
Media confirms: This was a terrorist attack
caffeinatedfeminist: BUT THE FBI DOES NOT KNOW IF IT IS DOMESTIC OR FOREIGN THEY DO NOT KNOW NO ONE IS IN CUSTODY. On that note, they’re also saying that the devices were crudely made, meaning the terrorist(s) who committed this act was not a “professional” or “experienced” terrorist. I would therefore guess this wasn’t Al Queda or the Taliban.
Muslims were injured today. Conservatives were injured today. Gun owners were injured today. White people were injured today. Immigrants and foreigners were injured today. Christians were injured today. Atheists were injured today. Whenever we do figure out who did this, and we will bring them to justice because it’s what we do, remember that they are not representatives...
I haven’t confirmed this source for myself, but apparently Boston local news is reporting that the explosion at the JFK library was a bomb and it is related to the bombings at the Boston Marathon. Edit: Boston Police are now saying the incident at the JFK library is not related to the Boston Marathon bombings.
little-nomad asked: WBZ Boston Local News (I live in downtown Boston).
little-nomad asked: the jfk explosion was just confirmed a bomb. it is related to the other two explosions. it's on the news right now.
Clearing this up, the JFK library is saying its explosion was caused by a mechanical fire, but the police are investigating it as an explosion on relation to the ones are the finish line of the Boston Marathon.
patrickstumpsfedora asked: The fire at the JFK library was unrelated and mechanical.
It’s been confirmed that the explosions were due to explosive devices, and also that a third explosion took place at JFK library. It’s definitely a bombing.
The media are trotting out their counter-terrorism experts, all while claiming they’re not trying to label the explosions as a terrorist attack. Uh, you’re doing it wrong. Report on this responsibly. Don’t scare people unnecessarily. Double check everything. Don’t report rumors as news.
Ugh, hoping for the best for the people of Boston.
the-languageof-myworld asked: Teachers don't know what the world is like any how, you spend your whole life in school learning perfect grammar and about the war when you don't even know about countries around you, aka the one above you. So maybe next time you decide to bash someone maybe think, hey they have been through something and they have had the courage to get through it and the strength. Maybe instead of...
Bankers: Don't invest in bitcoin.
Bankers: We don't have a management program to charge you for that.
That awkward moment when you realize every complaint economists have against bitcoin can be made about traditional currency as well. Oh, so bitcoin is volatile and lacking in intrinsic value because its only as valuable as we all agree it is, and its tendency to fluctuate encourages hoarding by a small percentage of holders? Nope, that’s not like regular money at all. Not a bit. Nuh uh....
Somebody in the reblogs of that rappers who support marriage equality post didn’t know Queen Latifah was a rapper. And y’all wonder why no one takes you seriously when you say stuff like Macklemore is changing rap music.
Even Wacklemore’s whole DIY schtick is false. Macklemore infiltrated a culture that had nothing to do with him, packaged it, and sold it to white kids. That’s not DIY. That’s appropriative bullshit. Macklemore is basically Elvis with a worse haircut.
People get really mad when you remind them Wacklemore isn’t special.
tea--and--yoga asked: You're a beautiful person.
thejeepwrangler asked: I'm not really trying to fight with you here, I just wanna get my opinion out, because it's that kinda country and I can. The fact that you are pulling the "it's because their black" card is beyond ignorant. I know that you might think that he's not a good rapper, and that's fine. I could care less. I really don't like that some black people do this to white...
ugh-bug asked: Your opinion is incorrect.
sugaredkitten asked: mcswagger please shut up everyone is entitled to their opinion, stop harassing dion for not liking macklemore.
squatsticka asked: It's actually in the dictionary.
squatsticka asked: How? It's an opinion. Opinion. meaning, a view formed about something not necessarily based on knowledge or fact.
date-rape-at-birthday-parties asked: I can understand why you dont like macklemore but you dont have to flaunt it around like that, I respect your opinion and everything, but you know... its just kind of dumb to answer all the asks from the people who keep asking the same thing
squatsticka asked: No, he's right. There's no incorrect/correct opinion on music. You hate macklemore, I don't hate macklemore. I may think Blink 182's music is bad (i don't) and you may enjoy it. That's not incorrect.
mcswagger asked: Opinions of music aren't incorrect, asshole. You're an idiot.
squatsticka asked: I don't understand why you don't like him so much?
my-scars-are-hidden asked: Why are you hating on macklemore?
randymonster asked: While Macklemore isn't the only artist to publicly support gay marriage, he is one of the few that has wrote a rap that specifically states his stance on it. You have to give him some credit for that...
loveandbeautyfromwithin asked: I find it interesting how mostly your only argument against Macklemore is the fact that he's a white rapper that openly supports gay marriage. Everyone likes who they like for a reason, and those reasons shouldn't matter to you. You're not going to change their minds with your opinions. You don't have to like it, but it'd be very mature to respect them and their decisions...
mcswagger asked: I mean, I like Macklemore because I think he's a talented rapper and I like his voice, above anything else.
Rappers who publicly support gay marriage
Kanye West Jay-Z Nicki Minaj 50 Cent Lil B A$AP Rocky Fat Joe Queen Latifah Please stop fucking acting like Macklemore is this special snowflake for being a rapper who supports gay marriage. I know yall love to pretend that black people are homophobes, so obviously the music we make must be homophobic, but that is bullshit and Wacklemore is not the first rapper to publicly support gay...
bears-beets--battlestargalactica asked: Macklemore is changing rap, Same Love might be one of the most powerful raps ever written. I don't understand how anyone can dislike him, even if you're not a fan of his music.
wwwakeuppp asked: Come on, you have to have some respect for Macklemore. How many other rappers do you see openly supporting marriage equality? That's almost unheard of.
While I'm pissing off basic white teenagers
Rebel Wilson isn’t funny.
verruecktheit asked: What specifically do you hate about Macklemore?
adam-lamberts-lace-panties asked: Unfollowed...
slvvvg asked: Wacklemore... hi you're my new favorite person.
umajanelaaberta asked: Curious why you hate Macklemore so much? He's pretty interesting to look at. In 2005 he put out a track called "White Privilege" where he addresses his privilege and asks other white people to do the same.
Why won’t Obama act to stop Macklemore? What happened to change, Mr. President?
quidnuncphilosopher asked: What did Macklemore do this time?
indie-song asked: Wait I cant tell if you're being satirical or if you really hate Macklemore
brightnessunobscured asked: you're breaking my heart with this >macklemore thing. what's up?!
