“You can chant down speakers, my friend, but it’s hard to Etch-A-Sketch the truth away.”—David Axelrod, quoted by National Journal, on being shouted down by Mitt Romney supporters at a rally in Boston. (via liberalsarecool)

A:“Bath Salts” is the nickname for a type of designer drug that’s sold over the Internet, in head shops, and even at gas stations and convenience stores. They come in the form of capsules, powders, or tablets, and are snorted, injected, or swallowed.
Q:What are bath salts made of?
A:Most bath salts contain one of two psychoactive chemicals: MDPV (also known as 3,4-Methylenedioxypyrovalerone) or mephedrone. Both are synthetic versions of a natural ingredient found in the East African khat plant.
Q:“Bath salts” is a ridiculous name for a drug. Where did it come from?
A:No one knows for sure. But because MDPV and mephedrone occupy a gray area legally, distributors have marketed them as something else: plant food, bath powder, and yes, bath salts.
Q:What do you mean by “a gray area legally”?
A:MDPV and mephedrone have been illegal in the United States since 2010, but the manufacturers try to avoid prosecution by slightly modifying the compounds to make them technically legal.
Q:How much do bath salts cost?
A:About $25 to $50 per packet.
Q:Will taking bath salts cause me to become a cannibal?
A:Unlikely. But the effects of bath salts are powerful. They stimulate the central nervous system like methamphetamines, plus cause hallucinations, and even psychosis. Other effects: agitation, suicidal thoughts, chest pains, high blood pressure, and rapid heartbeat. On the plus side, you can get a good deal of vacuuming done.
Q:But can bath salts kill me?
A:Yes. As with methamphetamines, the increased heart rate can cause a heart attack.
Patriots: HEY RAIDEN you suck! And so does postmodernism! Free will is an illusion because humanity is too dumb to make its own decisions. Case in point: you. You’re a self-absorbed little fart with a selective memory and an impaired ability to empathize with…
“The big difference between Bill Maher and Donald Trump, though, is that the president is not sharing a stage with Bill Maher.”—
MSNBC’s Chuck Todd responding to a Romney Spokesperson arguing that Obama has not renounced stuff that Bill Maher has said.
This is the biggest key of the whole Trump argument. I don’t expect you to stand behind or refute every single person who happens to be a supporter. But if you’re hosting a contest where the entry fee is a campaign donation to win a dinner with a celebrity, you should try and find someone who isn’t a noted racist.
