Anonymous said: James Buchanan was homosexual. Is there any evidence of a First Lady being on the down low?

deadpresidents:

There is a theory that James Buchanan was homosexual. There is no definitive evidence, or anything more than rumors and theories. There are rumors and theories about Eleanor Roosevelt’s sexuality, too, but again, no definitive evidence. And, really, since they didn’t make it our business, it’s not our business.

Thank you for bringing joy into my childhood and life with your voice and acting. Thank you for your contagious jokes, your wacky impersonations, and amazing acting. Thank you for making my childhood experience better, and thank you for bringing joy to those even though you battled with your own joy. If only you could have known how much you’ve impacted people. Your life work will live on, and you will never be forgotten. I know I won’t forget you. Thank you for helping me whenever I felt sad and having a film for every mood. Gone, but never forgotten.

HISTORICALLY ACCURATE TRANSCRIPTION: POPE FRANCIS GOES TO CONFESSION

POPE FRANCIS: Father, forgive me, for I have sinned.
CONFESSOR: Go ahead, Your Holiness.
POPE FRANCIS: I met with Barack Obama.
CONFESSOR: That’s not a sin, Holy Father.
POPE FRANCIS: Shit, I need to stop reading the Drudge Report!
CONFESSOR: Continue.
POPE FRANCIS: I just said “shit” in the Vatican. That’s probably a sin.
CONFESSOR: Go ahead, Holy Father.
POPE FRANCIS: I told Obama that I enrolled for Obamacare on healthcare.gov but I totally didn’t.
CONFESSOR: Neither did anybody else, Your Holiness. Is that all?
POPE FRANCIS: I watched “Spring Breakers”.
CONFESSOR: Well, that might not be appropriate for everybody, but I wouldn’t say that you committed a sin.
POPE FRANCIS: No, believe me, I committed a sin while watching “Spring Breakers”. I mean, Selena Gomez? Talk all you want about Justin Bieber’s dogshit music, but at least he got that right, you know? No disrespect, but I would totally…
CONFESSOR: Ummm…perhaps we should move on, Holy Father…
POPE FRANCIS: I just committed a sin in my mind — a brain sin.
CONFESSOR: Does it involve Selena Gomez?
POPE FRANCIS: No, I imagined punching your dumb face because you interrupted me while I was talking about Selena Gomez. Listen, I may be humble, but I’m still the fucking Pope.
CONFESSOR: My apologies, Your Holiness.
POPE FRANCIS: I just said “fuck” in the Vatican. I’m pretty sure that’s a sin.
CONFESSOR: You also accidentally said “fuck” while speaking from the balcony recently.
POPE FRANCIS: Yeah, it was a fucking ACCIDENT. Get over it. Oh, I’m REALLY SORRY that I made a mistake while speaking like 25 different languages. Do you realize how hard that is? I’m literally from the other side of the world.
CONFESSOR: An accidental sin is still a sin.
POPE FRANCIS: [Whispers] Come here..Listen closely…
CONFESSOR: [Whispers] Go ahead…
POPE FRANCIS: [Whispers] You’re talking to the Pope. Bishop of Rome. Supreme Pontiff. Vicar of Christ. The 266th Successor to Saint Peter. I’m the lineal successor to an Apostle. Do you want me to show you the Keys to Heaven? Because I’m the Keeper of them. They’re in my fanny pack. You don’t need to tell me what is or is not a sin. Accidents happen. And unless you want another “accident” to happen — you know, like Pope John Paul I’s sudden, “accidental” death — you’ll just listen and nod.
CONFESSOR: Understood, Holy Father.
POPE FRANCIS: Fucking right it’s understood. Don’t make me get all Borgia or Medici up in this bitch.
CONFESSOR: Is that all?
POPE FRANCIS: I just called Saint Peter’s Basilica a “bitch”. That’s probably a sin. How many Hail Marys do I owe? Can I have a Swiss Guard pay you later?
CONFESSOR: You are forgiven, Your Holiness.
POPE FRANCIS: Hey, is there a bathroom inside there?
CONFESSOR: Goodbye, Holy Father.
POPE FRANCIS: [While walking away] Oh, I also totally know what happened to that Malaysian plane…it rhymes with “Balloon-minatti”. Robert Langdon knows what’s up. Can’t wait for Tom Hanks and Ron Howard to make a shitty movie about it…Hey, do you guys think Ratzinger had any “Wizards of Waverly Place” DVDs?

It’s alive! Buried deep in the Siberian permafrost scientists found a ‘giant virus’ that has been asleep for 30,000 years. Named Pithovirus sibericum, it contains 500 genes and was revived in the lab. The researchers are now trying to assess if ancient viruses such as this one could pose a threat for humans. via Science Alert/fb

Let’s hope this wasn’t the stupidest thing we’ve ever done.

there are about 16046540210 movies that explain exactly why this could be the stupidest thing we’ve ever done

The climate change, the nuclear threat, GMO’s and now this…

Go fuck yourself, humanity…

Let’s wake it up and see what it does! And THEN decide if it’s dangerous!


Let’s wake up a sleeping giant… You know, to see if it’s still a threat. What’s gonna happen next? “Oh shit, still a threat! Let’s sing it a lullaby to put it back to sleep!”

Garon Wade and his husband Jamie were prepared for their son in 2012. They were not prepared for what strangers had to say.
(Cab Driver in Florida directly after getting in) Where’s his mom?  (Us) He doesn’t have a mom.  (Long Awkward Silence)
(Cashier at a Surf Shop, see’s just me and my little boy)  Oh man, you were given Daddy duty today huh? (Me)  It’s Daddy Duty everyday at my house bro. (Confused look)
Do you think he’ll be more likely to grow up gay? (Me)  No. But I’ll love him for whoever he is, so it doesn’t really matter does it?
(Man on a plane next to me, completely out of nowhere)  So did you leave his mom in DC or are you taking the baby to his mom in Florida?  (Me) He doesn’t have a mom, he has two Dads. (Complete Silence)
Are you guys going to tell him he’s adopted one day? (Us)  Yea, but I’m pretty sure even if we didn’t, at some point he’d figure that one out right?
You shouldn’t take babies on planes for the first many months because they get sick right away.  (Us). He’s already been on 20 flights. (Silence)
(Random Guy on the street) Where’s his mom?  (Us) She didn’t want him, so I guess that makes us the next best thing.
(Random Stranger at the grocery store) That baby’s so cute. Does your wife breastfeed?  (Me).  No he’s got two Dads so we give him formula. (Lady)  What??
(Another Random Lady at the grocery store).  That baby is so young.  You should NOT be out with him like this at the grocery store! (My husband) Oh I’m sorry are you a pediatrician?  (Lady) Excuse me?  (Husband)  Are you a pediatrician?  (Lady)  Well, no.  (Husband) Then I’m not that interested in what you have to say.  My pediatrician said it’s fine to take him out. Have a good one.
(Yet another Random Stranger) Where’s his mom? (Me) Where’s your mom?

“The Constitution they wrote was designed to protect the rights of white, male citizens. As there were no black Founding Fathers, there were no founding mothers — a great pity, on both counts. It is not too late to complete the work they left undone. Today, here, we should start to do so.”
