Great advice from Amy Poehler.
Once you got all that you wanted, nothing was ever the same.
You mean politics isn’t real? Paul Ryan catches flak for staging a photo op that included washing clean dishes at an Ohio soup kitchen.
Do more of what makes you happy.
A new Gallup poll reports that almost 1 in 3 young Americans are underemployed. LIKE this if you have personally experienced problems with unemployment or underemployment, or know someone who has. SHARE this if you believe we need to act now to expand national service as a means of fuller employment.

I guess I never caught that bug where you’re only supposed to care about your own country or your own local area. To me, 49 decapitated Mexicans is just as bad as 49 decapitated Americans and I know if there were 49 decapitated Americans in the street anywhere in the country, it would be like 9/11 all over again. It would be the largest news story for years - if it just happened once - but it happens time and time again in Mexico… and I guess as long as Americans aren’t getting decapitated, apparently the rest of the country, and especially our media, couldn’t give a damn and that’s part of what’s sick and wrong with this country’s media. And so, we march on as if nothing is wrong, as if everything is hunky dory, as if the war on drugs makes sense and hasn’t created these grotesque gangs that grow larger and more grotesque by the day - and it’s not because of the drugs. It’s because the drugs are illegal.
