Hypocrisy at it’s best. Every abuser should be punished equally.

Yeah, because Hope Solo’s fourth degree domestic violence charge is the same thing as left hooking your fiancé into an elevator wall, or causing defensive wounds on your four year old because you won’t stop beating them with a stick. Context definitely isn’t important in these cases. We should never consider context. That would be ridiculous. Source: godzillamania

"Hope Solo only becomes Ray Rice through the annihilation of inconvenient history—through some forgery that implies that there is no tradition of men controlling women through violence. We are familiar with other such forgeries. It is how a conversation about the racism of Richie Incognito becomes a conversation about banning black people from using the word “nigger.” Or how the destruction of Mike Brown’s body becomes a debate about “black-on-black crime.” Or how Ray Rice knocking his wife unconscious morphs into, “Yes, but women do it too.” Indeed they do—but neither with the consistency, nor urgency, nor lethality of men."

No, Hope Solo Is Not “Like” Ray Rice

To say the female soccer star accused of assault is the same as the football player who pummeled his fiancé erases the historical truth about domestic violence.

And the Hope Solo witch hunt starts again. Gotta love the tumblr moral police. Or the MRAs….those idiots are hilarious.


….but, but she’s a role model….god forbid role models be flawed humans, just like the rest of us.

You can learn more from Hope as a “role model” for the way she’s lived through and handled her mistakes. Opposed to someone who hides, or runs away from theirs.

She is facing actual trial for actual domestic abuse charges for beating her nephew and sister. How in the world do conclude that this a Tumblr witch hunt? She isn’t being accused on the internet of calling somebody ciscum, she is charged in a court of law with multiple counts for a violent crime.

Flawed humans like the rest of us? Sure. But I’m pretty sure that the rest don’t beat the shit out of people, (I know that I don’t). And anybody who does is, in fact, a shitty fucking role model.

You got some reading to do brah…she didn’t “beat the shit” out of anyone. She’s also pleading not guilty, and she’ll have her day in court to tell her side of the story. Considering there’s no hard evidence damning Hope as an abuser, punishing her would be beyond ridiculous. The situation is incomparable with ray rice. There’s no video of Hope knocking someone out and then dragging them out of an elevator. Source: lowcalorieorangegatorade

I could not be more proud of this alternate cover for Captain America #25, part of a line-wide STOMP Out Bullying series of variants at marvel.

I got to draw that fantastic Jerome Opena-designed armor, as well as revisit a formative moment from my own secret origin, since back in Middle school, I was totally that kid getting mashed into the lockers. (Fuck you Sheldon. You too Gideon.)

A Texas man is under arrest after gunning down a SWAT team member as the officer quietly tried to climb in through the apartment’s window during predawn hours.

Police State USAreports  that a resident fatally shot Detective Charles “Chuck” Dinwiddie as the officer climbed in through a ground level window as part of a “no knock” raid. The officers were there due to suspicion that residents were in possession of controlled substances.

Upon hearing a noise, resident Marvin Louis Guy, 50, opened fire on the unidentified officers, shooting three others as well, although only one fatally.

Guy is currently being held on capital murder charges in connection with Dinwiddie’s death, even though it’s unclear how Guy was supposed to know that the men crawling in through the window were police officers since they hadn’t identified themselves.

The evidence sheet lists a laptop, a safe, a pistol, and a glass pipe, but no drugs were found. Given the evidence, why did police deem it necessary to seek a “no knock” warrant and why did a judge sign off on it?

Very little is known about Mr. Guy, but Dinwiddie left behind two children, all because his SWAT team went creeping into a home where the residents didn’t even have any drugs. Is that the best use of law enforcement tax dollars?

Guy’s bond has been set at $3 million dollars.

Thank you lieutenantnorals!

"cop breaks and enters with state approval, gets his ass shot"

brah………………. BRUV……………………..

this happened in Texas where it is perfectly legal to shoot and kill someone who is breaking into your home

Literally everybody knows that in Texas you can open fire on someone who comes onto your property without permission. What in the hell did they expect??

Where the NRA at? In the largest pro-gun state of Texass, those second amendment rights only apply if you’re white.

This is why I never understand the “no knock” tactic the police sometimes use.  Bad shit happens when you don’t announce that you’re police officers.

Skull, found in France, with a knife still embedded it it.  The skull belonged to a Roman solider who died during the Gallic Wars, ca. 52BC. It was on display at the Museo Rocsen in Argentina.  

Whenever I see things like this, I wonder how they died. I guess it will always be a mystery.

I’m gonna go with “Stabbed through the head” 

Yeah…I’m guessing he lost the fight.

Twenty-seven-year-old Omaha, Nebraska, resident Erin Duffy has never had — or even wanted — a credit card.

"I’ve been able to get along without it," she says, attributing the choice to ambivalence and a wariness of plastic her parents fostered in her during her formative years. "I’ve liked being able to pay for things as I go, not having to worry about missing a bill."

Duffy’s decision to live without credit cards is more common than you may think. A whopping 63 percent of millennials (ages 18 to 29) don’t have a credit card, according to a survey commissioned by Bankrate and compiled by Princeton Survey Research Associates International.

Comparatively, only 35 percent of adults 30 and over don’t have credit cards.

There are, admittedly, external factors influencing the statistics. An April 2014 Gallup poll found Americans’ reliance on credit cards, in general, has declined steadily since the Great Recession. Moreover, the Credit Card Accountability, Responsibility and Disclosure Act of 2009, or CARD Act, made it harder for anyone under 21 to get a credit card.

There’s also a more straightforward reason why a majority of millennials aren’t carrying the payment method: Many, like Duffy, just don’t want credit cards.

"I don’t really feel like there’s a need for one in the way I live my life," says Melissa Pileiro, a 24-year-old resident of Vineland, New Jersey. "The idea with a credit card is you’re essentially putting money down that you don’t have."

Like many members of her demographic, Pileiro is perfectly content with her debit card, a payment method whose existence has eaten into the credit card’s market share.

Millennials “grew up in a world where the economy was tanking,” says David Pommerehn, senior counsel with the Consumer Bankers Association. “There was great concern about jobs and debts and paying off bills.”

At the same time, college costs — and subsequently student loans — have ballooned. According to the Project for Student Debt, student debt increased an average of 6 percent each year from 2008 to 2012, with college graduates from 2012 having an average student loan debt of $29,400.

eh…I’d say credit cards are brilliant for establishing and building credit, especially because most of them come with 0% interest introductory offers.  After that, they’re a brilliant way to deal with emergencies.

If I’m in a financial emergency, I’d much rather have a credit card to fall back on, than get trapped in short term payday loan hell.
