Not being American and having to watch the Americans vote for Romney is like the moment in horror movies when the audience is screaming at the character to not go down to the basement but they still do anyway and then they die a brutal, torturous death…
this is the fucking best descripition about the election omg
being in America and watching Americans vote for Romney is like being the smart friend in horror movies that nobody listens to
being a Puerto Rican and watching Americans vote for Romney is like being the one character that is tied up to a chair and screaming for help with no possibility of getting heard or running away from the psycho with a chainsaw coming slowly your way

Puerto Rico National Committeewoman Zori Fonalledas is boo’d by the Republicans at their convention, chanting “USA.”
I’m personally embarrassed to be (a) white… and (b) American upon seeing this.
Before you white, fat, ignorant fucktards chant “USA”…
keep in mind that Puerto Rico has buried sons and daughters who’ve fought in all these wars the Republicans love to be involved in.
And this is the respect the island gets.
The amount of racism in that party is mind-blowing to say the least.
It’s why I absolutely hate politics.
I’ll be amazed if the media even gives a shit about this treatment, or if Romney has the balls to denounce it.
Comic book great Tom Beland, weighing in on the latest RNC idiocy.
As far as politics go, I don’t have a lot of love for the Democratic Party, and I’m a registered independent…
But goddammit, the Republican Party make it so easy to side against them and despise them.
They’re out of touch on social issues.
The thinly veiled racial undertones in their overt social warfare platform are ridiculous, as is the fact that they’ve convinced Middle America into voting against their own interests.
They wholeheartedly embrace ignorance and base policy off it, while disregarding cold facts, truth and science…
All of this while draping themselves in faux patriotism? Please fucking cut it out.
And this latest incident? It’s ridiculous, and extremely disrespectful. Puerto Rico’s been a part of the US for one hundred and fourteen fucking years; we’re all American citizens, and we serve in the armed forces. How about acknowledging that? Is it easier to ignore because the Puerto Rico situation doesn’t fit into the platform of “brown people at the borders are taking our jobs and destroying our language!!!!!”
Can’t wait for the goddamned election to be over with.
Here’s a lengthy installment of History Today that I’ve been looking forward to posting for a long time. It was fun as hell to research, and I hope it’s an equally fun read.
As the official drink of Puerto Rico, the Piña Colada is ever-present, a part of our cultural identity and heritage.
It’s also fucking delicious.
Today, we’re gonna take a truthful look at its origins…
Get ready for The Bizarrely-Convoluted History of the Piña Colada!
Mofongo is a Puerto Rican dish of fried, smashed plantians served with meat or seafood and broth. For our adaptation, we fried and smashed some plantains and served it with a creamy, spicy sofrito of onions, peppers, chilis, bay leaves, and sour cream along with slices of avocado. It’s a juicy, complex sandwich with layer upon layer of bright, spicy flavors.
And from the delicious garbage plates of my second home, we move onto a delicious-looking sandwich inspired by the cuisine of my heart and home.
Although I’d probably skip the chipotle powder and jalapeños or serranos… hell, I’ll just make my family’s sofrito recipe. That’s one of the beautiful things about Puerto Rican cuisine, it leaves room for the cook to express themselves and improvise.
