I’m just gonna leave this here. There are all kinds of reasons that this means a lot to folks like me.

HOW IS THIS EVEN CONTROVERSIAL OR SOMETHING THAT NEEDS TO BE STATED?!?! I just can’t with people.

As great as this is, I’m once again reminded of the sad truth that Jon Stewart — a comedian — is doing the media’s job better than the media itself.

The Young Turks did a thing on this too. Americans are OVERWHELMINGLY in favor of the provisions of the Affordable Care Act; it’s just that Fox News and a $235 million attack ad campaign from the GOP have made people think Obamacare is scary and bad.

Why is it so hard for mainstream media companies to criticize Romney? And every lying Republican who says stupid untrue shit? Ugh. Journalism rage.

Walgreens is Bringing Free HIV/AIDS Tests to a Pharmacy Near You

So far, the tests are only available in three locations — Chicago, Washington, D.C., and Lithonia, Georgia — but the project, which is being backed by $1.2 million from the Centers for Disease Control, is set to spread. By the end of the summer, Americans from Oakland, California to Billings, Montana and 17 other locations will be able to get themselves tested for no charge at their local pharmacies.
