THEY ARE TRYING TO TAKE THE ENDANGERED SPECIES ACT DOWN
AND REPLACE IT WITH THE BULLSHIT ENDANGERED SPECIES MANAGEMENT SELF-DETERMINATION ACT
THAT ALLOWS STATES TO DECIDE IF THEY EVEN WANT TO ABIDE BY LAWS PROTECTING SPECIES AT ALL
AND DELISTS SPECIES AFTER ONLY FIVE YEARS
DOES ANYONE ELSE EVEN CARE
better question; how do we stop this?
l o l i feel like i was sucked into an alternate dimension where everyone just wants the world to conclude itself
"The glasses you get at the bar are like footballs. I mean, they aren’t really like footballs, but there’s a raised area on the side of the glass in the shape of laces, so you can kind of pretend that you’re holding a football when you’re holding your beer glass. That’s neat."

losing people to drugs and alcohol is the worst because they destroy any good memories you have of them before forcing you to deal with the empty space they leave behind. also whoever keeps putting the few quotes i said early in my career about drugs back into my wikipedia page is an asshole. I…
"If bass stands for ass, then what’s treble — boobs? Either Meghan Trainor is the one person in the universe standing up for flat-chested curvy women, or she didn’t think this metaphor through at all. It’s a shitty metaphor anyway — a song with no treble would be unlistenable — which makes sense, given that it was awkwardly grafted onto a title none of the songwriters knew what to do with. Trainor raps like she learned it from Luda’s verse for Justin Bieber; Kevin Kadish writes doo-wop like he learned it from Vanessa Carlton on the Counting Crows cover of “Big Yellow Taxi.” Trainor’s Miley Cyrus drawl — not the only similarity “Bass” shares with Cyrus, but I’m not going to talk about the video — is more interesting than her attempt to emulate hook-singing Fergie, but I wouldn’t want a whole album or even singles cycle of it. I can’t believe this is Top Ten; everything about it screams “minor Radio Disney hit that escaped somehow.” But unlike “Cool Kids” or “The Big Bang,” which escaped into nothing much besides a dutiful radio presence, “Bass” escaped into thinkpieceville, writers somehow finding ways they didn’t use up on Louie to chitter about yes feminist/no feminist and how fat and where fat and why fat. The websites all use the same unflattering screencap up top, a little too gleefully, and their commenters turn the bottom half of the Internet even more into burn books than usual. It’s exhausting, and it makes Trainor paradoxically ubiquitous as a cultural talking point yet a non-entity as a musician, which for an artist’s debut is deadly. In a world where “Rolling in the Deep” can become a smash with minimal cultural handwringing, why is this necessary? My guess is displaced rockism. Adele is seen as authentic enough that her music and career trajectory can be discussed on their own, but for a rising teenpop-adjacent artist like Trainor, the default assumption is that the music is nothing. Sad thing is, sometimes default assumptions are right. "
