The women of Tennessee are having their reproductive rights stolen from them.
Right now in Tennessee, there is a constitutional amendment that is going to be on that ballot in November that will give politicians the unlimited authority to restrict or ban abortion, even in cases of rape or incest or if the life of the mother is endangered. Its called Amendment 1 and it simply goes to far into our private health decisions. Even if you’re against abortion personally, you can see that. Not only that, but similar amendments have passed in all of our border states so, if this passes, women in Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Virginia, Kentucky, Arkansas, Missouri and North Carolina all loose access to safe abortions. And “safe abortion” really is the key word here because this amendment is not going to end abortion. Its going to end safe and legal abortions. Women will still need them and still seek them but will simply be unable to get them in safe and sanitary environments.
Also, on October 1st, the Hamilton county (the county that the city of Chattanooga falls under) commission is considering a resolution to support Amendment 1. This would mean that the city of Chattanooga itself would endorse the amendment. The city has no right to try to sway voters one or another in a personal issue like this, and we need to let them know that. If you live in or around the Chattanooga area, please join us at the next county commission meeting on Wednesday, October 1st on the fourth floor of the Hamilton County house at 625 Georgia Ave. The meeting begins properly at 9:30 so we urge you to get there no later then 9:00. If you wish to attend, please contact me and I’ll be sure to get you Vote No On One shirts, buttons and stickers. If you can’t attend, please reblog this spread the word!
The women of Tennessee need you to Vote No On One!

After only 4 and a half hours of deliberation, the jury in Jacksonville, Florida, has found Michael Dunn guilty of the first-degree murder of Jordan Davis.
Instead of rejecting guys by awkwardly telling them I’m not interested,
I’m going to start telling them they can date me only if they bring me a Silmaril from Morgoth’s throne.
THIS HAD BEEN DRIVING ME NUTS FOR FOREVER.
So there. Now I have figured it out.
People who I suspect have thought about this less than me:
- Peter Jackson
- real geneticists
I love when real science is used to explain shit in fantasy worlds.
"Anyways, I’m Finrod Felagund and this is wonderwall"
so more of this crossover
I’m glad you liked it and hope this interpretation is okay
Why Did You Capitalize The Word ‘Cabbage’ But Not The Word ‘France’ : an adventure in reading fanfiction
coming soon, the thrilling sequel: ‘You’ve Gone Through Three Different Tenses In The Space Of One Paragraph And I Think You Just Invented A Whole New One All Of Your Own’
and the long anticipated conclusion to the trilogy: ‘I Have No Idea Who Is Supposed To Be Speaking Right Now’
Meet the Reykjavík Metropolitan Police, serving the capital of Iceland. By the looks of their incredible Instagram account, a normal day includes holding kittens, eating candy and wearing false mustaches.
For the record the Icelandic police are probably the best police force in the world, There has only been one instance where an officer shot and killed a civilian in the entire history of the country (which is nearly a hundred years) and everyone was completely devastated by it, the police especially — because, as made clear in their statements after the incident, they understand their function is to protect the people. Not to mention that their general police go unarmed except for special squads.
Let’s run through some more facts while we’re on the subject: Compared to 31,000+ shooting deaths in the US in 2009, Iceland had… 4, because they have very rigorous screening processes for gun permits. There is very little economic disparity between upper, middle and lower classes, and social welfare programs take care of their people. Drug use affects less than 1% of the population between 15 and 65 years old, and 90% of drug-related court cases are settled with a fine rather than jail time. Violent crime is virtually non-existent. [x]
Iceland is like if you took the entire idea of chill and personified it as an country, and this exemplifies that.
