Tumblr has taught me more about feminism, womens rights, rape culture, slut shaming, mental illness etc, more than school ever had. So don’t you dare tell me this website is a complete and utter waste of time

White people to Asian people: We don't trust you, so we're going to put you in internment camps. Go back to where you came from.
White people to Latinx people: You're not allowed to come into this country. We don't want you.
White people to Black people: You can't use that bathroom or that school. That's for us. Use that other one.
White people: Wow, you using the term "people of color" is awfully divisive. Why are you making this an "us versus them" thing?

I love my First Lady

Can you please tell her to tell her husband to stop killing muslims? Thanks

literally all she does is try to make the country “healthy” by giving students shitty school lunches like please do something else and help your husband fix the economy! *goes awf*

Imma need y’all to learn how the United States Government works. You don’t have to like her or the president but learn that they do not makes the decisions, they really do not have very much power, the president does not have the power to just snap his fingers and make shit happen or change things. You have to have 2/3 vote from congress to take a shit, let alone do anything having to do with government. The entire government was set up to make sure that exact thing could never happen, that is why there are 3 branches and that little thing called checks and balances.

In fact let me just break this down for y’all right here. 

  • President has 2 OFFICIAL jobs, Commander and Chief of the Armed Forces, but he only controls a limited amount of the funding for those troops (enough for 90 to 120 days) to engage these troops in combat. He CANNOT just declare war. only congress can declare war. The second, Accountant over the Federal Budget. 
  • He also is responsible for creating and balancing the national budget, but everything has to be approved by congress with a 2/3 vote. 
  • He signs bills into law, can veto them as well, however congress can override his veto. 
  • He assigns judges to the Supreme court, with the senates approval. 
  • He assigns foreign ambassadors, with the senates approval. 
  • he creates his own cabinet for people to research into areas that he might not have the time to, these are the only people who do not have to get approval from senate
  • congress is made up of 535 people (100 senators 435 HoR) for any of them to come to 1 agreement has only happened once in the history of this country, and that was to go into WWII, and even that the house voted 434 to one (1st woman house of Representative she was from Maine too, she voted against WW1 and 2)  and the judicial branch can call anything unconstitutional and kill it as well. 

and if you think i’m lying you can literally google this shit in 2 seconds. 

That tea is delicious

SAY THAT SHIT AGAIN! 

I would love for people to remember this when they want to start blaming the president. Any president, though not all of them have had good ideas.

lemme get in here a sec.

The President needs a 2/3 vote in Congress to get practically anything done, right? Well currently, the 133th US Congress is split with 53 Democratic senators and 45 Republican senators and 201 Democratic representatives and 234 Republican representatives. That makes a pretty even split between the two major political parties. Ever since President Obama was elected into office, the Republicans have voted down every piece of legislation he’s attempted to pass, in an effort to pin him as the worst president in American history, so that they can go back to their white-washed elitist lives and keep all their hoarded money from the people. The President has been doing everything he can to change things, but he cannot do that without the approval of Congress. Remember that week-long shutdown we had? Yeah, that was because the Republicans weren’t getting exactly their way with the budget, so they decided to shut down the whole goddamn government until they got their way. The United States Government relies on compromise and agreement between the two parties, and we’re seriously lacking right now in that department.

So if you want to blame someone for our country’s issues, blame the goddamn Republicans for acting like tantrum-throwing two year olds.

I read somewhere that this is the most useless Congress this country has had since the 1960s.  Nothing is getting done.

And yet Obama still got Obamacare through Congress, and 3-4 million Americans now have insurance who did not have it before.  Not only that, but there are not more part time workers, as opponents to the bill shrieked.  The number of part-time workers fell by 230,000.  The number of full-time workers has risen (by two million).

So I’d say the Republicans are full of hooey.  Also, they keep leaving town to go on vacation in the middle of crises.  That looks to me like they aren’t that interested in governing and ought to be replaced by somebody who is.

While the Executive Branch has arguably been delegated an incredible amount of power since the signing of the constitution, almost none of that power is actually in the hands of the president. The CIA, FBI, & other organizations technically classified as part of the executive branch of government can and do operate autonomously and without the knowledge of the president. The heads of these organizations are not elected and stay for a very very long time. All this is about as scary as it sounds and basically you can thank Nixon for it because that’s what sort of created this incredibly powerful executive branch with an almost powerless executive.
