Hey everyone, I’ve been meaning to make this post for a really long time and its gotten to the point where I just can’t wait anymore for my own safety. As much as it embarrasses me, I’m in serious need of your help. Bottom line, I am unsafe where I am living and I need to get…

what happened in roughly 1870 though
why was there temporary internet
with a few people searching for pokemon?
It’s a search of Google books, but the question still stands, what the Fuck happened in 1870
I CAN ANSWER THIS!!
In the Cornish dialect of English, Pokemon meant ‘clumsy’ (pure coincidence).
In the mid 1800s there was a surge of writing about the Cornish language and dialect in an attempt to preserve them with glossaries and dictionaries being written. I wrote about it HERE.

Twenty-five years and three days later, reality takes a tip from fiction and charts “Weird Al” Yankovic’s new album Mandatory Fun at number one, with over 100,000 sales during it’s first week. In his 31 year long career, with 14 studio albums to his name, this is the first time he’s hit the top- and the first comedy album by ANY artist to hit #1 since 1960! Congratulations, Al!

Same-day voting registration laws help improve and equalize the democracy process, but did you know that it’s now illegal to register and vote on the same day in NC? The republican controlled legislature eliminated same day registration last year, a backwards step for our voting process. Under the new law, voter registration must occur at least 25 days prior to an election.
In 2007 the state general assembly passed a law that made same-day registration legal and voter participation increased immediately. More than 100,000 North Carolina residents registered and voted simultaneously in the 2008 and 2012 general elections (http://ift.tt/1mFNr4M). Demos, an organization dedicated to public policy, conducted research comparing same day vs. non same day registration states. The findings illustrated that same day registration states had higher voter participation than those without same a day policy (http://ift.tt/WFbPyg -same-day-registration-where-it-available).
The law,even showed increased voter participation, especially for certain social groups. Although youths (18-25) comprised 12% of voters in 2012, they were 33% of same day registration voters; Blacks made up 34% of same day registrants/voters (http://ift.tt/1mFNrll). Illustrating even greater racial ramifications to the current law, Blacks utilized same day registration/voting more than Whites in 2012, according to Dr. Michael Herron and Dr. Daniel Smith, two political science professors (http://ift.tt/1mFNrln).
This law is important to me. I don’t believe that my parents participated in the civil rights movement to have their offspring jump through voter suppression hoops similar to the ones that existed in the 1950’s and 60’s. Things should progress, not be repeated under less obtrusive schemes.
Remember, same day registration is now illegal. Get registered to vote today…the right you save may be your own!!!
Register to vote RIGHT NOW if you haven’t already. The sooner the better.
