he Republican-controlled House of Representatives on Wednesday evening voted to sue President Obama over Obamacare.
This is historic.
In a 225-201 vote along party lines, our leaders in Washington decided that House lawyers will draft legal documents to launch a lawsuit against the president for allegedly exceeding his constitutional powers.

Okay, okay, I’m going to tell you what Hermione sees in Ron.
A trio is a balancing act, right? They’re equalizers of each other. Harry’s like the action, Hermione’s the brains, Ron’s the heart. Hermione has been assassinated in these movies, and I mean that genuinely—by giving her every single positive character trait that Ron has, they have assassinated her character in the movies. She’s been harmed by being made to be less human, because everything good Ron has, she’s been given.
So, for instance: “If you want to kill Harry, you’re going to have to kill me too”—RON, leg is broken, he’s in pain, gets up and stands in front of Harry and says this. Who gets that line in the movie? Hermione.
“Fear of a name increases the fear of the thing itself.” Hermione doesn’t say Voldemort’s name until well into the books—that’s Dumbledore’s line. When does Hermione say it in the movies? Beginning of Movie 2.
When the Devil’s Snare is curling itself around everybody, Hermione panics, and Ron is the one who keeps his head and says “Are you a witch or not?” In the movie, everybody else panics and Hermione keeps her head and does the biggest, brightest flare of sunlight spell there ever was.
So, Hermione—all her flaws were shaved away in the films. And that sounds like you’re making a kick-ass, amazing character, and what you’re doing is dehumanizing her. And it pisses me off. It really does.
In the books, they balance each other out, because where Hermione gets frazzled and maybe her rationality overtakes some of her instinct, Ron has that to back it up; Ron has a kind of emotional grounding that can keep Hermione’s hyper-rationalness in check. Sometimes Hermione’s super-logical nature grates Harry and bothers him, and isn’t the thing he needs even if it’s the right thing, like when she says “You have a saving people thing.” That is the thing that Harry needed to hear, she’s a hundred percent right, but the way she does it is wrong. That’s the classic “she’s super logical, she’s super brilliant, but she doesn’t know how to handle people emotionally,” at least Harry.
So in the books they are this balanced group, and in the movies, in the movies—hell, not even Harry is good enough for Hermione in the movies. No one’s good enough for Hermione in the movies—God isn’t good enough for Hermione in the movies! Hermione is everybody’s everything in the movies.
Harry’s idea to jump on the dragon in the books, who gets it in the movies? Hermione, who hates to fly. Hermione, who overcomes her withering fear of flying to take over Harry’s big idea to get out of the—like, why does Hermione get all these moments?
[John: Because we need to market the movie to girls.]
I think girls like the books, period. And like the Hermione in the books, and like the Hermione in the books just fine before Hollywood made her idealized and perfect. And if they would have trusted that, they would have been just fine.
Would the movies have been bad if she was as awesome as she was in the books, and as human as she was in the books? Would the movies get worse?
She IS a strong girl character. This is the thing that pisses me off. They are equating “strong” with superhuman. To me, the Hermione in the book is twelve times stronger than the completely unreachable ideal of Hermione in the movies. Give me the Hermione in the book who’s human and has flaws any single day of the week.
Here’s a classic example: When Snape in the first book yells at Hermione for being an insufferable know-it-all, do you want to know what Ron says in the book? “Well, you’re asking the questions, and she has to answer. Why ask if you don’t want to be told?” What does he say in the movie? “He’s got a point, you know.” Ron? Would never do that. Would NEVER do that, even before he liked Hermione. Ron would never do that.
Hi friends, I’m still desperately searching for someone to come to see 5SOS and 1D on Friday (TOMORROW omg i’m so excited)
and also possibly Saturday cause I have a feeling my friend isn’t gonna be able to come.
So PLEASE let me know if you would like to join me.
Both nights the seats are in the 100s (fri:130c, sat: 126), row 11. Which are pretty excellent seats.
Your ticket would be $120, but at this point I’m desperate so just make me an offer.
Note: I’m a really awesome person and I promise we’ll have lots of fun. :)
You like Sterek and Firefly, how have I never followed you before? Well I rectified that :)
Haha thank you! :D
There will be plenty of Sterek! I don’t post a whole lot of Firefly… I just made that post cause I decided to marathon it again and just finished it now lol.
And I just have to say how much I love Firefly because it literally is one of the best shows ever. Like you wouldn’t think a show about space cowboys would be any good, but it is brilliant and Joss Whedon is brilliant and everything he does is perfection.
Firefly was the best gorram show ever and if you think otherwise then you’re a ching-wah tsao duh liou mahng.
Hey friends and followers!
Do any of you guys live in Toronto?
And want to go see 5SOS & One Direction on Friday?
Apparently all of my friends who like 1D are already going or can’t afford it.
The ticket is $120 and you get to spend the evening with yours truly! :)
Preferably someone 19+ so we can have a lovely drunken adventure.
Really? No one wants to come with me? :(
