I primarily dwell in the fandoms of Superwholock (and it's componant shows), Nerdfighteria, Castle, Avengers, Merlin, Firefly, Starkid, Harry Potter, Lost Girl, and Divergent. If books in general have their own fandom than I'm also a part of that.
That’s why Republicans block jobs bills — so they can blame Obama for the economy still sucking. They’ve blocked budgets, resulting in a government shutdown that they then tried to blame on Obama. They’ve tried over and over again to block Obamacare, and complain that it’s a failure as they work their asses off to try to make it fail.
It’s kindergarten politics, and we need to vote these schmucks out in November. A bunch of white guys throwing temper tantrums and shouting NO! to everything just because they don’t like the president is no way to run a government, especially if we’re going to continue to pretend to be one of the greatest nations on earth.
Haven’t they held Congress hostage long enough?
The worst part about this strategy is that the Republicans have convinced the people that both sides are the same and the government is useless. These rat bastards have deliberately broken the trust of the people just so they can stick it to the President.
What’s worse than that: they have a great chance at picking up more Congressional and Gubernatorial seats in less than four months because that cynicism leads to people, especially younger and undecided voters, staying home (even moreso because this is a midterm).
You know the old head, hardcore GOP voters won’t, though.
I really like how this angle has the mic split Bruce right down the middle - just like he has two sides. Bruce, and Hulk.
But look how they fucking ARE their characters:
Tony is at ease on stage, obviously, but strutting his stuff all the same. Fuck humility. I belong here, damn straight tony stark is crashing your oscars. Hand near pockets, ready to chillax with a scotch, probably more busy thinking about how good pepper looks in her red carpet attire than anything else. Sunglasses to ease his hangover headache from last night.
Steve, the proper gentleman, in his 21st century tux. He is not uncomfortable, but hes never been one for the spotlight all the same. Straight back, shoulders firm, smiling gently.
Bruce is a fucking giddy kid, “holy shit, im at the oscars, this is incredible, i bet i could scan the brain waves of every celebrity and brilliant directing mind here for similarities”
Clint has his hands near his mouth, a bit of a worrier. Hes not unsettled, but he sees better from a distance. Certainly not liking the center stage.
I actually have a theory that this is at least partly because Sam’s worst, most aggressive impulses are vented on a regular basis because of his lifestyle as a hunter.
How many times a day does the average person want to punch someone in the face for whatever reason, and suppress that urge because it’s wrong and violent and uncivilized?
But Sam is violent and uncivilized on an almost daily basis, so there aren’t any pent-up violent urges lying underneath the surface, just waiting to burst out the moment there’s no conscience or empathy to keep them in check.
What Sam doesn’t do a lot of is speak his mind, so what we get is a fuckton of the snark that’s normally hidden behind his epic silently judging-you bitchface.
