Nominally bedtime. I’m not ready to head to bed yet, but I’m putting this up now anyway.

Storms can just please get over and done with quickly, please, the thunder is not helping.

A good day, in that I got the counter cleaned and all my dishes done (and then got more dirty, because dinner, but I’ll clean those in the morning). Also got errands run.

Hugs for everyone, and I hope you sleep well!

No one actually thinks all men.
Just too many men.
Just enough men to be afraid.
Just enough men that all women have experienced it.
Just enough to make it a social problem not a personal one.

Older snippet, because I still haven’t gotten more written.

Padmé closes the eyes of the Bith who’d murdered their shared Master, studying him for a long moment. He’d never expected a tiny slip of a human to challenge him, much less be an actual danger to his life, the more fool he. As far as she could tell, he didn’t think of the Force as anything more than a source of power to be manipulated, either.

Stepping away, she narrows her eyes a moment before unleashing fire to consume the body - and the building as she walks away - and leave nothing of Tenebrous but ash floating on the wind of a desolate planet. This is not his stage upon which to act, and she will not have a rival for her control of the Sith, and ultimately, the galaxy.

Tilting her face into the wind outside a moment, she smiles, a small curve of the lips, and tugs the hood of her robe up to hide her face. Now, all she needs is a proper set of tools, and a place to build upon the plans she and her Master had made to bring the destruction of the Jedi, and the fall of the Republic they loved and served.




The ten-year-old girl meets Padmé’s eyes fearlessly, tilting her chin up as Padmé studies her. The body is very nearly perfect, an echo of the first body she’d called her own, the one she’d been born in, and trained in under her Master. Better than the aging male she appears to be, the nominal grandfather of this small child.

“You will do, child.” She rests a hand on the girl’s head for a long moment, forging the bond she needs to accomplish her desired goal. The girl will be sacrificed, but Padmé will live and continue to seek the goal she has her entire life. And her plans need a new face - her tools are suitably enthralled, and her apprentice is in position to further her plans. He, she worries about, ambitious as he is, but she has not taught him all her secrets, nor plans ever to.

The family of young Padmé Naberrie thinks her silence and her paleness a reaction to seeing her grandfather die, and though they will encourage her soon enough to take an interest in the world once more, she will never be the same again. Everyone thinks the same thing, and in the privacy of her mind, Padmé smiles with amusement.

Anonymous asked:

what do you think of the universal basic income scheme some countries are trying out?? Would you ever consider doing some variation of that in America???

[tumblr.com profile] whitehouse answered:

I talked about my thoughts on UBI in a recent speech. Short answer: I don’t think it is the answer because too costly to give to everyone without a big and unrealistic increase in taxes and because the attitude behind UBI is giving up on work. Instead, I think we should focus on investing more to make college more affordable among other items.

I added:

You have got to be kidding me.

I mean, yes, the issue about taxes I can see.

But “giving up on work”?

How is making sure that no one has to worry about whether or not they’ll eat, or whether not they’ll have a roof over their head, by ensuring that everyone has enough regular income to cover that “giving up on work”?

How is giving people the freedom to find a job that is suited to their abilities and skills and doesn’t destroy their physical and/or mental health by relieving them of the stress of not being able to meet the basic physical needs of themselves - and their families - “giving up on work”?

How is taking care of children, those who cannot work, and the elderly, “giving up on work”?

How is rejecting the classist, ableist, racist, sexist notion that only those who can produce to an arbitrary standard deserve to live “giving up on work”?

So I was talking with @norcumi last night for the first time on skype, and my brain ran away with me. Pertinent music: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ckNWtmkA2_g

Thus proving that the fastest way to get me to write is to egg me on with loud flaily noises.

Female Tea Workers In One Indian State Fight For Their Rights

From @npr:

“We gathered our courage and succeeded,” said [organizer J. Rajeshwari]. “It’s men who ruled for the last four generations. It’s men who ran the unions. For so long, it’s only men. That’s why we women came together.”
