"I’m saying the border is wide open. We have found copies, or people along the border, have found Muslim clothing, they have found Quran books that are laying on the side of the trail. So we know that there are Muslims that have come across, have been smuggled in the United States."

Texas Sheriff Gary Painter

Al Capone mug shots, April 1930, after being arrested on vagrancy charges when visiting his Miami Beach property when Florida governor ordered sheriffs to run him out of the state.

Just a reminder that if the state wanted someone arrested and harassed, they’d be arrested and harassed. All those racist killer cops? The state wants them free.

According to witnesses, al-Zaidi was “severely beaten” by security officers after he had been dragged out of the room following the shoe-throwing incident.[38] As the man’s screaming could be heard outside, Bush said “That’s what people do in a free society, draw attention to themselves.”[27] A “large blood trail” could be seen on the carpet where al-Zaidi had been dragged by security agents.[39][40] Dawa-owned Afaq TV reported that security forces kicked al-Zaidi and beat him.[27] His family reports that it has received many threatening phone calls.[41] The United States Secret Service and the Iraqi Police took custody of al-Zaidi.[42] Al-Zaidi was tested for alcohol and drugs, and his shoes were confiscated as evidence.[43] Al-Zaidi was interrogated by Iraqi and U.S. agents to ascertain whether anyone paid him to throw his shoes at Bush.[44] In an interview with BBC News, al-Zaidi’s brother, Durgham al-Zaidi, reported that Muntadhar al-Zaidi suffered a broken hand, broken ribs, internal bleeding, and an eye injury.[17]Durgham al-Zaidi told Al Jazeera that his brother was tortured.[45] Al-Baghdadia TV said that al-Zaidi was “seriously injured” during his detention.[45] Al Sharqiya also points to signs of injury on his thighs and an immobile right arm. However, a different brother, Maitham al-Zaidi, spoke with Muntadhar on the phone and was told: “Thank God I am in good health.”[44] On Friday 19 December Dhia al-Kinani, the judge investigating the case, said there were signs al-Zaidi had been beaten; al-Zaidi had bruises on his face and around his eyes.[3] The judge also said al-Zaidi had not yet raised a formal charge relating to his injuries.[3] His lawyer, Dhiya’a al-Sa’adi, has also confirmed that al-Zaidi had been beaten, stating that “there are visible signs of torture on his body”.[46]

This scene was perfect

That time James Bond replied to homoerotic taunting not with some macho no homo bullshit, but by calmly implying he was bisexual anyway and somehow did not suddenly cease to be awesome but instead roughly doubled in awesome points.

I love this scene so much. 

Canonly bisexual James Bond must continue to be a thing forever, please.

I went to see this movie in theaters just to watch this scene

let me know when he’s in bed with a man, not just being felt up by a coded-gay villain. james bond is not a prude, if he fucks someone, we see it

Another species to be added to the ever-growing tick-list:
Africa’s Western Black Rhino has been officially declared EXTINCT. Poaching and lack of conservation have led the subspecies of black rhino to extermination, while the Northern White Rhino is ‘teetering on the brink of extinction’.
Way to go, humanity.


I can’t even.
