And that hasn't happened since the movie AVATAR in 2009.   

BLACK PANTHER is the 7th biggest grossing film in U.S. History....and still climbing up the charts.

Feeling rebloggy
BLACK PANTHER took in $27 million in weekend ticket sales, pushing its domestic gross to $605.4 million, and its international haul to about $1.2 billion.

It is now the 14th-highest-grossingmovie of all time, passing “CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR and MINIONS and is on pace to top THE AVENGERS” as Marvel’s top-grossing movie ever.

Our first time having sex, wasn’t at all like the movies. It was a little awkward. We aren’t even sure if we are having sex. I’m not even sure if a quarter of his penis is in. Then he climaxes. He doesn’t know what happened. I’m not sure either.
A few weeks later, my period hasn’t come...
I don’t want to have a child, repeating the cycles that have plagued my family for decades. My mom had me at 20. Didn’t finish college at the time. My aunts have the same or similar stories. I am the eldest of the next generation. I can’t start us off like this. I have to graduate...

I convince him that we don’t want it. So I start to research abortions. But during that process, his position begins to change. Unable to hear his pleas, I soldier forward with my research, trying to abort it without going to the clinic... I want to miscarry before it has a heartbeat. Eventually, though, I make an appointment with Planned Parenthood...
The night before the appointment, we stay together, discussing our future, crying a bit, having sex. We figured out how to have sex by now. The following morning looks like we feel, dreary. He drives to the center, being supportive, but also mentioning the option to keep it....

This article likely doesn't begin or end the way you could assume it would.  I hope you'll give the whole thing a read. This article on abortion is as complicated as it should be...but usually isn't.

The only things I could have wished for was some discussion on 1) unwed fathers and their abdication of birth control responsibilities on the front side, and 2)  protecting self and setting boundaries on unacceptable behavior even when (especially when) you empathize with the unwed father's pain.

  • "Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe on Friday evening, two days before he was slated to retire — and become eligible for full pension benefits.
  • The move was applauded by the one person Jeff Sessions needed to please the most: President Donald Trump. "
Read More:

"Analyze McCabe firing on two levels: the substance and the timing. We don’t know enough about the substance yet. The timing appears cruel and a cave that compromised DOJ independence to please an increasingly erratic President who should’ve played no role here. This is dangerous " 

The FBI's fired Deputy Director Andrew McCabe will be firing back it seems. Like fired FBI Director James Comey, McCabe also kept notes on his interactions with Trump.  But his notes cover the period immediately after Comey was fired. 

This could get interesting.
I only ever thought Mueller could shame the republican congress into getting rid of Trump. But this looks like it could get a lot more interesting than I thought. The Orange Nitwit is making political enemies faster than an avalanche shaving off one-third of a mountainside. 

And let me remind you, that President Nixon was impeached and had to leave Washington D.C. due to the cover up, not the initial crime. D J the Chump and his number one suck up, Keebler Elf Jeff Sessions, look like they are moving in very similar ways....less than 6 months before control of The House of Representatives might changes hands.

This could turn out to be a lot more interesting than I thought it was going to be. McCabe's firing makes me wonder if somebody like Jeff Sessions could actually wind up in jail where he belongs one day.

That image you see in the mirror isn’t the truth.

Your eyes have become magnifying glasses, you can’t see past what you believe is wrong.
The stretch marks, the lack of a thigh gap, the acne that every product you try can’t seem to remove.

I’m sorry that men have instilled these ideals in you, men whose catcalls feel like crosses and lustful looks feel like nails forcing you to accept their unholy crucifixion.

They get angry if you show a lack of interest, as if they actually believe something along the lines of ‘Hey sexy’ and ‘Nice tits’ is a compliment.

I’m sorry for the unrealistic expectations.

I’m sorry that your thickness isn’t the right type of thick if your butt is fat but your stomach isn’t flat.

I’m sorry that if you happen to be a cup size not fitting for these men, there is a grievous error in your genetic makeup deserving of the title flat-chested among other poisonous opinions just because your breasts aren’t the type they want to fondle.

From a young age, you have been criticized simply for the act of living, torn down for the slightest resistance to male privilege.

I cannot bear to imagine the things you’ve heard walking down the street, in the workplace and even at home simply because of your gender.

So if no one has told you these things, let me be the first.

It’s okay if your skin is not as smooth as that of those Instagram models.

It’s okay if you don’t have a thigh gap and it’s okay if you do; it doesn’t matter.

It’s okay if your weight doesn’t fit their particular scale.

Your weight; your acne; your scars; your thigh gap; your lack of a thigh gap; your skin tone; your skin color; your height; your smile; your hair; none of these things impact you as a person, and the opinions of these men who hardly have anything to bring to the table mean nothing.

You are beautiful.

Read it again, as much as you need to.

You are beautiful.

Yesterday's Edition of 


PART 1: Tillerson Fired

On Tuesday March 13, 2018, Trump and company tried to play it off like Rex Tillerson was asked to resign last Friday and his exit was planned.

Nobody would have been surprised by this since Tillerson reportedly called Trump a "f***ing moron" last summer. What is surprising is that Tillerson lasted this long after refusing to deny he called Trump a "moron."

After the White House tried to make the Secretary of State's transition look less like OPERATION CHAOS continuing to roll with firings and abrupt resignations, Tillerson's aide came out and said Tillerson wanted to continue as the United States top diplomat. Aide Steve Goldstein said Tillerson found out he'd been fired and replaced via a tweet. 

PART 2: Tillerson Aide Fired

Goldstein publicly contradicted the White House account of how Tillerson was fired on Tuesday morning.
Goldstein said Tillerson was officially notified he'd been fired from a tweet from President Donald Trump on Tuesday morning, and in a statement, said Tillerson had "every intention of remaining."A senior administration official said Trump asked Tillerson to step aside on Friday and a senior White House official later clarified that chief of staff John Kelly told Tillerson that he would be replaced, but did not specify the timing.
Goldstein was then fired as well.

PART 3 Tillerson's Exit Speech
Tillerson was in Africa when he was let go. He flew back to the United States and gave an exit speech where he notably did not thank Trump for his opportunity to serve. He handed off duties the same day. But as part of transitioning whatever mess he's involved in to Mike Pompeo, soon to be ex-head of the CIA, he will stay on in Washington D.C. until the end of March. 

PART 4: Is Tillerson's firing related to russian nerve gas incident in the U.K.? 

A lot of people are wondering about the timing of this firing. Well, impulse control is not the Orange Menace's strong suit. He's got a meeting with North Korea coming up which makes this the worst time to change out your Secretary of State. But to Trump, having a circle of yes-men apparently matters more.

It's possible that Tillerson recently contradicted Trump one time to many.

Trump Denies Russian Guilt in Murder. Tillerson Admits It, Is Fired. Hmm.

Every Trump administration personnel shake-up is a noir story of terrible, incompetent people squabbling with other terrible, incompetent people. But one thing that stands out about the firing of Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is that Tillerson explicitly identified Russia as the culprit in the murder of Sergei Skripal in the United Kingdom, and Donald Trump did not.
Yesterday, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders condemned the murder as “reckless,” but repeatedly declined to endorse the United Kingdom’s conclusion that Russia was behind it. This exchange with reporters is quite odd...

PART 5: Gina Haspel to become head of CIA?

When Pompeo moves from being the head of the CIA into the Secretary Of State job, Gina Haspel is Trump's pick to move up and be the first woman to head of the she ran OPERATION CAT-EYE in Thailand, which involved being in charge of an Abu Ghraib type black site where torturing of prisoners took place during her watch under the Bush Jr. administration.

Yeah....Okay....No problem.

Exactly one month after 17 people were killed at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School here in Parkland, survivors of the massacre joined tens of thousands of students across the U.S. in a national walkout Wednesday morning....
Organized by the Women's March, an estimated 185,000 people in 50 states joined the walkout. Approximately 3,100 schools said they were going to participate, an organizer told NBC News ahead of the walkout.
In Washington, D.C., a crowd in the thousands gathered, holding signs toward the White House with slogans such as "Books Not Bullets" and "Fire Politicians, Not Guns" on them.
At the stroke of 10 a.m., the crowd sat down en masse, their backs to the White House, and started a 17-minute-long moment of silence. Afterwards, some marched to Capitol Hill, with plans to meet with legislators. 

Walking out for Chicago: “I witness the cycle of lives taken by gun violence and I will not back down”

Camryn Salter is a senior at Whitney Young Magnet High School in Chicago, IL.
Salter said,
Growing up on the south side of Chicago, I witness the incessant cycle of lives taken by gun violence. It is so deeply embedded into our streets and homes that it is almost expected for many of my peers not to make it past the age of 18. The amount of brothers, sisters, fathers, mothers, friends, and cousins lost to gun violence is so overwhelming that people become desensitized to the psychological burden that people not only in Chicago, but all over the nation are experiencing due to gun violence. The impact of gun homicide is bigger than a love one lost. There is an emotional, social, and financial toll, as the mere exposure to countless stories of lives taken can affect someone just as much as being a direct victim.

Zyahna Bryant Re-Ignited The Battle Against Confederate Statutes At 15

Feeling Rebloggy

Bryant’s petition against Charlottesville’s Confederate statues was cited by Councilman Wes Bellamy as a catalyst for the May 2016 creation of a Blue Ribbon Commission on Race, Memorials, and Public Spaces. By March of 2017, the City Council had considered the Commission’s report and voted three to two to remove the statues altogether. Several plaintiffs immediately sued and a Virginia state judge enjoined the town of Charlottesville from removing its statutes, pending the lawsuit. That summer, in July of 2017, the Ku Klux Klan protested the City’s plans. On the weekend of August 12, hundreds of alt-righters rallied in town to preserve the statues, leaving three people dead in their wake.
It's February, 2018 now and the statue of General Lee is still standing, covered by a black, plastic tarp. Nearby, in the old Capital of the Confederate States, Democrats in Richmond recently introduced a bill in the Virginia state legislature that would grant Charlottesville the local power to permanently remove its Confederate statues.
In a series of recent phone calls, Bryant told me about her essential role in Charlottesville and American history. The following has been edited and condensed for clarity and length.

Born in Indian Territory on March 3, 1902, to Joseph and Rose Rector, Sarah Rector received a land allotment like all those who were members of the Creek Nation when Oklahoma became a state in 1907. 
Sarah’s family was entitled to land allotments under the Treaty of 1866 made by the United States with the Five Civilized Tribes. However, these lands granted to former slaves were usually considered inferior, infertile, rocky lands of poorer agricultural quality, with fertile land being reserved for white settlers.... 
[Legally unable to sell the land like he wanted to, her father eventually] decided that it would be best to lease Sarah’s parcel to the Standard Oil Company. As it turned out, he made the right decision, and in 1913, independent oil driller B.B. Jones, produced a “gusher” that brought in 2500 barrels a day.
