People still think that the American civil war about slavery. Such a damn shame.

Fuck you guys. From Mississippi’s Declaration of Independence:

In the momentous step, which our State has taken of dissolving its connection with the government of which we so long formed a part, it is but just that we should declare the prominent reasons which have induced our course.
Our position is thoroughly identified with the institution of slavery - the greatest material interest of the world.


From Texas’ Declaration of Independence:

She was received as a commonwealth holding, maintaining and protecting the institution known as negro slavery - the servitude of the African to the white race within her limits - a relation that had existed from the first settlement of her wilderness by the white race, and which her people intended should exist in all future time. Her institutions and geographical position established the strongest ties between her and other slaveholding States of the confederacy.

From the Confederacy’s own Constitution: 

No bill of attainder, ex post facto law, or law denying or impairing the right of property in negro slaves shall be passed.The Confederate States may acquire new territory; and Congress shall have power to legislate and provide governments for the inhabitants of all territory belonging to the Confederate States, lying without the limits of the several states; and may permit them, at such times, and in such manner as it may by law provide, to form states to be admitted into the Confederacy. In all such territory, the institution of negro slavery as it now exists in the Confederate States, shall be recognized and protected by Congress, and by the territorial government: and the inhabitants of the several Confederate States and Territories, shall have the right to take to such territory any slaves lawfully held by them in any of the states or territories of the Confederate states.

So not only was slavery a key cornerstone of the Confederacy, they went so far as to say that any Confederate state was REQUIRED to allow slavery, and could not limit it in any way. BUT WAIT, WHAT ABOUT STATES’ RIGHTS? Fuck the Confederacy, may it burn in hell for all eternity. The South shall never rise again. 

If you wave, own, or have a tattoo of the Confederate Flag, there is a 100% chance that you’re an asshole.

Didn’t really read any of this.  Just reblogging for Barrett’s comment.

A sort of strange ad for Apple. But not a bad one. Quite fun. Nice Heisenberg shout-out as well as old logo throw-back at the end. Do I smell a comeback?

I love this.  Gets back to the message that at the end of the day technology is inherently personal despite being a constant part of everyday life for almost everyone.

My idea of rich is that you can buy every book you ever want without looking at the price and you’re never around assholes. That’s the two things to really fight for in life. — John Waters (via brittanybarns)

Gimmicky features, commercials in bad taste, endless variation—these are the tactics of companies that don’t have a soul. They throw anything and everything against the wall in hopes that something will stick. That’s what Android hardware is. Samsung is in Trouble (via azspot)
