there’s something really interesting in this passage that I wanted to point out
Trelawney assumes that Harry was born in midwinter because of his “dark hair” and “mean stature” and “tragic losses so young in life”
Tom Riddle was born in midwinter, is describe in CoS as resembling Harry, and his mother died right after his birth
Harry has a piece of Voldemort’s soul in him
that’s why Trelawney made that assumption
I pointed this out in my Harry Potter class today and everyone started yelling and about five people told me to go to hell
this was so confusing when i first read it because i’m australian and in australia july IS midwinter
but hold on HARRY POTTER CLASS?
Oh Harry potter class
Thank you for asking this. I’ve always wanted to go on a rant about this. I’ll probably lose a bunch of Democratic followers but here it is.
Obama was born to a certifiably Communist father, so obviously he was going to be raised with exposure to the kinds of views that America has fought against for so long. In College, he started a gang devoted to smoking drugs. And Obama was the worst of the lot! He was taught by a Communist teacher! He then became Senator, but refused to vote on quite a lot of things. While he was running for President in 2008, he accused Bush of being “irresponsible and unpatriotic” for raising the Debt Ceiling once. In his term, he raised it three times, and is due to do it a fourth time! (I’m pretty sure it’s 4 times. I’m not positive on that number). The point is that he had raised the Debt Ceiling way more than Bush had.
He is so far entrenched into the Socialist views that he believes in giving people incentives not to work, because they will get a steady income anyway. He wants to tax the rich, even though the rich men and women are the ones who create jobs. He is convincing lowlife Americans who don’t want to work that they are special and important by trying to give us bullsh*t about the successful people “not building that”. He has made Americans hate successful people, which is why Romney lost - because he’s the white, successful, rich man who everyone hates because of Obama! Wouldn’t you rather have a president who knows how to make money and become rich and successful? You don’t want someone who doesn’t know how to do anything with money.
Obama has basically convinced the nation that Republicans/Conservatives deserve to go to hell. People hate Christians irrationally, Republicans and Conservatives are treated as if they were evil racists for voicing their opinions. Where is the freedom in that?! Obama has and continues to make history as the very worst President the United States has ever had! And it’s not because he’s the first ever black President, it’s because he doesn’t deserve to be President. He may have gone to law school, but that certainly doesn’t make him any better of a leader.
…okay rant is over. That went on for longer than I thought, but that’s just my opinion. I am certainly not begrudging anyone for liking him because we all have different opinions and ideas of what we want. If you come off anon, I’d love to talk to you :)
Alright Mentalist fans! Now is the time! VOTE VOTE VOTE VOTE to save the Mentalist in the Save One Show poll!!
Someone wrote in the comments: “It seems kind of pointless to even vote since it’s clear BATB would have to STOP voting and either Dracula or The Mentalist would have to have a huge surge in votes for either to even have a hope of winning”
I WANT US TO HAVE A HUGE SURGE IN VOTES AND TAKE THE LEAD FROM BEAUTY AND THE BEAST! COME ON!! WE CAN DO IT!
A/N: Here’s a little student!Lily/ teacher!James that I hope is not too cliche…
“Lily,” Marlene hissed, this time louder than the numerous times she had done it before. A few students sitting in the rows in front of them turned to throw them annoyed glares.
Lily continued to ignore her friend, determined as she was to stay out of trouble in this class at least. She failed to repress the thought of Professor McGonagall’s harsh reprimand when she caught them whispering to each other in their previous lecture. Her cheeks, she was convinced as she waited for class to begin, were still faintly tinted with color from having all eyes on her.
But Marlene McKinnon was not one to give up so easily. She scribbled something on a blank piece of paper before setting it in front of Lily.
The baddest ass President we’ve ever had.
obama is my favorite president and he’s not even mine
i want him to be my president

He’s also the biggest idiot of a president, so be glad you don’t live here.
