THIS IS THE FUNNIEST VIDEO I’VE SEEN ALL YEAR

“Guardians of the Galaxy was such a fantastic movie!”
"There were a lot of issues with GotG that should be addressed and Marvel should work on improving with future movies."
Yeah you know me I’m still not very good with this so I’ll not try to write a big long prelude to the main point of this post:
These last three years have been the best of my life so far, and it’s all because of you. You’re the light of my life and the most important person in my life. I love you with every fiber of my being and I’m looking forward to the next rest of our lives becoming the best years of my life <3333333333
Rick Perry, Asshole of the Day for August 29, 2014
Last month we named Rick Perry Asshole of the Day for sending the National Guard to the border even though it turned out they couldn’t do anything and might not even have their guns loaded. It was all just for show— for Fox News and 2016 GOP primary voters.
But that’s not the whole story. We noted at the time that Gov. Perry had said he wouldn’t pay for it, and expected the federal government to pick up the tab. Now this is rich because the Texas National Guard isn’t actually helping the Border Patrol, so the federal government gets no benefit from the deployment Perry ordered, nor did they ask for his help.
But Perry sent them anyways. And now it turns out the Guardsmen haven’t been paid, and have had to go to the food pantry so they can eat:
A food bank revealed to local TV station KGBT that they’d been inundated with food requests from Guardsmen, who were deployed on August 11 and won’t be paid until September 5. “We were contacted that 50 troops that are in the Valley don’t have any money for food and gas and they need our assistance,” the bank’s director told KGTV.
According to The Wire, it costs about $12 million per month to keep the 1,000 troops at the border “sustained,” and Perry’s refused to use Texas money to pay them, instead calling on the federal government to do so.
So Perry insists the federal government pay for this deployment they didn’t ask for, but he didn’t actually secure that funding prior to deploying them. And who suffers for his lack of planning and pointless deployment? The men and women in the guard who he ordered there. And that is why Rick Perry is the Asshole of the Day.
It is Gov. Perry’s seventh time as Asshole of the Day. Previous wins were for
- saying his wife never meant to defend women’s right to control their own bodies
- claiming his abortion bill is about protecting women’s health, even though it has no provision to save the life of the mother
- saying all women should be forced to have babies as teenagers because Wendy Davis did
- suggesting that expanding Medicaid will invent people to be sick
- refusing to shake Obama’s hand and saying Obama was “in on” the border crisis somehow
- sent the National Guard to the border, even though they can’t do anything

[on diversity in media] I think its social responsibility. I think it’s our responsibility to stand up and say what we want. It think if you look at television in the past two years, it’s becoming the decade of the female. Like, all these new shows with female leads. Even if you look at television, as well as cable, as well as films, there’s been a resurgence, as far as the leading woman in Hollywood, which is great. And I think we’re also at the point now…you know, it’s interesting…x
