I swear the fuckin producers of the simpsons knew shit was an issue before anyone opened their eyes.

Totally. It’s such a bummer that not a single person on earth had ever thought about the social issues that lead to crime or about prison overcrowding until Lisa Simpson mentioned it in a 1995 animated Fox sitcom. Thank god our eyes were opened.

More importantly though, this episode ignited the furious debate over whether or not a garage is actually called a “car hole.” My fuckin eyes are still open on that one.

As usual, the Simpsons steal all their best jokes from news coverage of the Rodney King beating.

We got Harry on May 27th, and by the next day, he was dying.

He wasn’t eating. He wasn’t drinking. He wasn’t doing anything but coughing, gagging, and vomiting. We called BluePearl, an animal ER, and were told to bring him in immediately. They diagnosed him with severe infectious pneumonia,…

While there is a lot of appropriate rage about Ferguson right now, the killing of John Crawford, III is getting less attention than it deserves. I put Shaun King’s tweets and history lesson on the matter in chronological order for easier consumption.

My lawyer gives the same speech to everyone who wants to do business with me now. ‘Nicki is not one of those artists who allow her representatives to make decisions for her.’ I’m on conference calls all day with lawyers, accountants, and executives—people of power—and they treat me with respect. Because I command respect. I’m not cocky, but I deserve to know what’s going on. It’s my brand and my life. That’s my advice to women in general: Even if you’re doing a nine-to-five job, treat yourself like a boss. Not arrogant, but be sure of what you want—and don’t allow people to run anything for you without your knowledge. You want everyone to know, Okay, I can’t play games with her. I have to do right by this woman. That’s what it’s all about.

In my very strong opinion — and I speak to you as chairman of the veterans committee in the Senate — I do not believe that people fought and died for democracy so that billionaires can buy elections.
