We’re not even gonna mention FEMA’s Waffle House Index where they determine how bad a natural disaster is by calling the local Waffle House to see if they’re open?

Donald Trump, Memes, and Militia: MIGRACION ADUANA My American patriots this invasion of migrants has been planned for a while by a group hermanos sin fronteras funded by George Soros and the Democrat party in California. This is a distraction to attack Donald Trump Success and powerful economy by deflecting the governments failure to secure our borders and portraying him as an evil dictator for protecting us and not letting these criminals come through. What begin with 1000 now could be as big as 42000 and the closer they get to our border the bigger their caravan gets. The Mexicans did not secure their border, they send a dozen cops and all they are doing is sending them in sections. The invasion is filled with MS13, Terrorists, Military from south American government who are providing the left media real time correspondence. The leaders of this invasion is paying each individual as they move closer and also providing them with water, medical aid etc. The democrats are using this like before to attack Donald Trump on his immigration policies and to distract the election fraud from the democrats using non citizens to vote during our elections. We must send the Militia to the border if we cannot get our troops. Every American Citizens should be up in Arms. I call on the arrest of the leaders of Hermanos Sin Fronteras and freeze all of their assets until an investigation on this treasonable act has been made.-

Children, Destiny, and God: I dig this for a couple of reasons. First, it's got great style. Perhaps more interestingly though, is that it's a very different tone as far as the direction of aggression. Most people know the Clash of the Titans version where she's on the hunt for him once he shows up. But let's face it, Medusa really gets the shaft from destiny overal She starts out as a priestess in a temple who gets raped by Poseidon and gets cursed for it as if it was all her fault. The result is that she's basically doomed to live without human contact for eternity. Then she's hunted down specifically for her head by a demigod whose got all sorts of great toys and backing to get the job done and depicted as some sort of horrible monster for defending her turf from folks out to kill her There are some really interesting theories about regarding just what the whole 'gorgon thing was really about from a historical perspective. It's really quite a tragic tale about the rise of patriarchy and the purge of goddess-centric worshipers. There are also parallels to the Apollo versus Typhon story which is part of the same0 era. Harsh. See, even the demystified stories from ancient times are fascinating! deviantart Medusa by "MattRhodes Reblogging for commentary I wish there were more nuanced portrayals of Medusa than as just a scary. snake lady Not to mention all this shit went down while she was pregnant with twins, the Pegasus and the giant Chrysaor, as a result from the rape Perseus would mount Pegasus, and use him and Medusa's head to kill a sea monster, thus winning him a wife, Andromeda. Medusa was cursed by the very goddess she served, Athena, who also gave Perseus the mirrored shield he used to slay her. Raped, betrayed by her god, hunted down like a beast in her own home while she was pregnant, her own children stolen from her and used to glorify and aide her killers and betrayers. And she's supposed to be the monster? ei That's hoW Greek men saw the myth. Greek women viewed it as Athena protecting Medusa by giving her the power to make any man who looked at her completely harmless. Her head was used as a symbol to mark women's shelters in ancient Greece. 。 Friendly reminder to remember that women have their own vivid lives and cultures and that the stories which are preserved today come through a heavy filter of gender, race, and class biases VIA THEMETAPICTURE.COM srsfunny:I Dig This For A Couple Of Reasons

 She starts out as a priestess in a temple who gets raped
 by Poseidon and gets cursed for it as if it was all her
 fault. The result is that she's basically doomed to live
 without human contact for eternity. Then she's hunted
 down specifically for her head by a demigod whose got
 all sorts of great toys and backing to get the job done
 and depicted as some sort of horrible monster for
 defending her turf from folks out to kill her
 There are some really interesting theories about
 regarding just what the whole 'gorgon thing was really
 about from a historical perspective. It's really quite a
 tragic tale about the rise of patriarchy and the purge of
 goddess-centric worshipers. There are also parallels to
 the Apollo versus Typhon story which is part of the same0
 era. Harsh.
 See, even the demystified stories from ancient times are
 fascinating!

 Medusa by "MattRhodes
 Reblogging for commentary
 I wish there were more nuanced portrayals of Medusa than as
 just a scary. snake lady
 Not to mention all this shit went down while she was pregnant with
 twins, the Pegasus and the giant Chrysaor, as a result from the rape
 Perseus would mount Pegasus, and use him and Medusa's head to
 kill a sea monster, thus winning him a wife, Andromeda. Medusa was
 cursed by the very goddess she served, Athena, who also gave
 Perseus the mirrored shield he used to slay her. Raped, betrayed by
 her god, hunted down like a beast in her own home while she was
 pregnant, her own children stolen from her and used to glorify and
 aide her killers and betrayers. And she's supposed to be the monster?
 ei
 That's hoW Greek men saw the myth. Greek women viewed it as
 Athena protecting Medusa by giving her the power to make any
 man who looked at her completely harmless. Her head was used as
 a symbol to mark women's shelters in ancient Greece.
 。
 Friendly reminder to remember that women have their own vivid lives and
 cultures and that the stories which are preserved today come through a
 heavy filter of gender, race, and class biases

America, Apparently, and Beautiful: dank-space-memes: inkandcayenne: wilfulwayfarer: rasec-wizzlbang: dalaisa-katili: local-emo-mom: anarcho-individualist: explanatorypower: i dont understand this at all and america scares the fuck out of me This is the america they don’t want you to see i love america This is what you call Waffle House at 2 am when the bars close and everyone is drunk and hungry *group of people having fun*this site: wtf this is so scary People having safe fun at a waffle house is scary for most Tumblr bloggers, reports say. Some context for those not familiar with Waffle House Culture:  Waffle House is one of the few chains in America that’s open 24/7/365, and where you can get both breakfast and lunch/dinner options at any time (I have had so many Breakfast Cheeseburgers at Waffle Houses). The food is really good, and people eat there at all times of the day or night, but it’s particularly popular as a late-night post-drinking spot because it’s all that’s open and it’s the kind of food that tastes especially good when you’re hammered. Part of Waffle House Protocol is that all the servers and cooks greet every single customer as they come through the door. It sounds lame, but I’ve never been to a Waffle House where that greeting didn’t feel completely heartfelt. My mom is a health nut who could barely find anything on the menu she was willing to eat and yet she describes the Christmas Day lunch we had there one year as one of the nicest meals she’s ever had because everyone was so warm and welcoming. That sense of camaraderie gets turned up to 11, of course, at 2 a.m. when everyone’s shitfaced. The jukeboxes have Waffle-House-themed songs on them (once you have heard “Raisins in my Toast” you will be earwormed forever) and there is an arcane system of hash brown ordering: scattered, smothered, covered, chunked, topped, diced, peppered, and/or capped. The hot sauce bottles say “Casa de Waffle.”  Once, in Oxford (UK), my husband and I walked past a kebab van very late one night and he said “why do I smell Waffle House” The location of most Waffle Houses means there’s some… classism that tends to get tied up with Anti-Waffle House Discourse, which is probably lending itself, in part, to this being such a fraught topic. (I’m looking at a map and apparently I was born and raised right in the middle of the Peak Waffle House Density Zone) It is, in the words of chef Anthony Bourdain, “indeed marvelous— an irony-free zone where everything is beautiful and nothing hurts; where everybody regardless of race, creed, color or degree of inebriation is welcomed.” This was adorable lmao

Anyone that has ever met her knows what a bright light she was on this earth. She was gentle, but strong, sweet, but sassy, worldly but pragmatic, a woman of great faith and certainly the love of my life.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Heart failure is a chronic progressive condition where the heart is unable to pump blood efficiently through the body. Rita Owens was on medication, had a defibrillator implanted in her chest to prevent heart attacks, and a strict diet of low salts and fats with lots of vegetables. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ”She had struggled with a heart condition for many years and her battle is now over... I am heartbroken but know she is at peace. Thank you for your kindness, support and respect for our privacy at this time. Much Love, Dana Owens (aka Queen Latif‎ah), forever Rita Owens’ daughter.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Latifah mentioned to PEOPLE in a previous interview in 2015 that when she was not in California, she was at her mother’s New Jersey home helping with caregiving duties. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ She broke the news to PEOPLE about her mother’s death and impact on her life. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "I watched her come through so many things, ups and downs, hospitalizations – I mean really being in the ICU for that matter – you know, going through tough times and watching her come back and bounce back and still maintain this sense of humor, and love and drive and will...
