My understanding on adding the manslaughter charges at the end of the trial is that it is common practice because you don't want to torpedo your murder case by making the jury feel like your not sure enough in your case from the get go. That's not saying they didn't fuck up throughout the trial.

Wisconsin takes Texas' reins and runs with them.

The law signed Friday by Walker in a private ceremony would cut the number of clinics offering abortions in Wisconsin from four to two, and one of the remaining clinics would have to dramatically cut the number of abortions it provides, according to the operators of the clinics.

"When women don't have access to safe, legal abortions, there are health consequences and women die," said Teri Huyck, president and chief executive officer of Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin.

Backers of the law, which also requires women seeking abortions to get ultrasounds, said they were not worried about the lawsuit.

"We are confident this bill will be held to be constitutional," said Susan Armacost, legislative director for Wisconsin Right to Life.

Man I just saw this joke I made and I have to admit, I think a LOT of the Dr. Who fandom wouldn't be racist. At least I think the British part of the fandom would already appreciate Elba as a hell of an actor.

And also in my really shitty joke I left out OLD white lady when I said white lady. I do think our generation and possibly my mom's generation is a lot LESS racist than the generation who was around before the civil rights movement.

Brent, firstly, I was making a joke. Secondly, no I don't think so. Look man I usually don't get into the specifics of my family but you know that I've got family in the deep south, right?

Texas to be exact.

I literally have cousins who are half native and half Mexican who post stuff on their facebook about Obama being both a monkey and the anti-Christ, and about how all the wetback should take their asses back to their own country. Did I mention that my family is Mexican?

Do I think that intelligent, enlightened, people who fight for equality can come from the south? Of course I do.

Do I think its the norm? Hell fucking no.

I don't think I've ever talked about it here, but I am genuinely glad mom got us the fuck out of Texas when she did. I look at my cousin Clifton to be specific, who, aside from my brother was my best friend when I was a kid, and see that he's turned into a racist, misogynistic, xenophobic bastard and I'm afraid of how I might have turned out had I not been taken out of that environment at the age I was.

Of course, my only interaction with the south was in the most poverty stricken areas, so I guess I don't know much about the upper-class in the south.

Anne Rice is a white lady from NOLA, I don't see how its at all shocking that she might act exactly like a white lady from New Orleans be racist.

Also, you have to take into consideration that The Usual Suspects came out pretty much smack in the middle of a period in his carrier wherein Spacey was ALWAYS the bad guy.

I only post this here because I couldn't find a topic it fit in (I honestly can't believe that we don't have a topic dedicated to the rampant sexual assault in our military so I probably just missed it) and because it struck me while watching this video that no US General would EVER say some of the things this man said and so it kinda fit. Apparently the AU military has been having their own sexual assault scandal and this video is what one of their Generals had to say about it.

Shit is amazing.

Chief of Army message regarding unacceptable behaviour

Seriously, this man's anger is fucking refreshing. And his complete lack of wavering or making excuses equally as powerful. Also he blinks once in the entire video.

James Gandolfini, apparently. Only source I've seen so far is TMZ but the local news just reported it. :(

The only reason I don't wear contacts is because people have told me that apparently my glasses are the difference between me looking pissed all the time and not.

As someone who is only 50 percent white I have to say the reason I stopped watching Breaking Bad is not because I thought Walt was playing like some sort of hero or anti-hero. I stopped watching Breaking Bad when I felt like they went out of their way to make sure all the terrible white characters were back dropped by even worse characters of color. Take the asshole racist brother-in-law, he's terrible right? Oh wait his partner is just as much of an asshole racist as he is but he's also brown? Fuuuuuck.

Yeah, I gotta say, I am willing to pay sixty bucks for a new game because of gamestop. I know that not everyone buys a game retail, so I'm willing to eat a bit now for that system in the future. And online passes fly in the face of this structure. I am NOT willing to pay sixty bucks for a game that can't be traded, that's why I don't pay more than 40 for PC games.
