How fucking clueless is the NFL? They have no morals or values of any kind (apart from money), and only respond when public pressure comes to bear.
You have that whole Ray Rice wife-beating monster case, where he was given a slap on the wrist…until everybody got outraged that he was only given a slap on the wrist. A bunch of lies were then told to cover up the obvious bullshit reversal.
Now you got this Adrian Peterson ass who beats toddlers with wooden sticks. Just three days ago, the Vikings said he’d be allowed to play and practice while his child abuse case oozed its way through court…until everybody got outraged, and they were all, suddenly, “After giving the situation additional thought…”
Only a freshly Windexed pane of glass is more transparent than these NFL dipshits.

Tumblr actually provides some handy talking points in case you get nervous or tongue-tied—not to mention the fact they actually make the call for you. I scanned those talking points, but, as you can imagine, I had my own.
It was only like a 45 second conversation. I just told him that I strongly supported net neutrality and that I thought fast and slow lanes were a horrible, discriminatory idea.
He thanked me, took my name and address, and that was it.
GET THOSE PHONES RINGING.
I DID IT! Net Neu-fucking-trality! Tumblr actually connected my call to my senator. Do it. Click the link at the top. Fuck this controlling the internet shit.
PS: you only talk to a lackey, not an actual politician…

thatmadman said of We are the goon squad and we’re coming to town: beep beep: There is no money in beards. There is, however, a ton of money in shaving and shaving related products.
I was thinking that, too, but have you seen all these beard oils, beard shampoos, beard conditioners, moustache waxes, etc., that have recently come out?
All you really need for beard maintenance is a wide-toothed comb, warm water, and a dab of grapeseed or olive oil…
