pod!person!morality!kurt is my least favorite kurt.
There’s a Sound of Music-themed day but I don’t want to poke anyone’s eyes out. Or, well, at my height, their stomachs…

glee is very straight forward and obvious and anyone who tries to say their deep analyzing of a certain canon situation IS canon needs to not do that
but i have this whole headcanon where if kurt goes into fashion in new york every time he makes a new piece he’ll take some of the leftover fabric and make a bowtie with it to send back to lima for blaine
I keep wanting to write this fic whenever this pops up on my dash (which is often), but so far I haven’t been able to…
I don’t understand how the hell the law was upheld. Specifically the individual mandate portion (because high-risk pools and prohibiting companies from hurling people off their rolls for getting cancer and such are all pretty clearly regulation of an existing industry and therefore completely within the federal government’s power). It’s not a tax. If you call it that, then you have to say that it is, essentially, a tax on inaction which isn’t a tax - it’s a penalty. And a penalty is distinct from a tax inasmuch as it’s not universally required to be paid and is the result of what you did or failed to do rather than something you have to pay based on, say, income or the buying or selling of assets. The individual mandate consists of the federal government telling people “You must buy x, and if you don’t you have to pay a fine” - that’s not a tax even if it goes to the IRS.
But painting it as a tax ends up actually being better for the Republicans than striking it down. Why? Because that’s the attack ad for the next 5 months - the clip of Obama saying “If you make under $250,000 a year, your taxes will not go up!” smashcut with the ruling that this is a tax that people who make under $250,000 are still subject to should they opt not to buy the exorbitantly expensive and deplorably underinclusive coverage offered by insurance providers.
Plus this was so clearly a decision where 8 of the 9 knew exactly what they wanted the decision to be before they ever looked at legal analysis and then tailored the argument to suit the result. I hate those so fucking much. Sure, they’ve existed throughout the history of the court (Brown vs. Board for one), but it’s so disingenuous.
Yet I seem to have done that to The West Wing, seasons 1-3. So much for research.
(The summer of 2004 was rough, OK?)
Oh god, you absolutely can. Especially since, if you rewatched them like crazy in 2004, you have the old double-sided DVD versions don’t you? I’ve had three different season 1s. Three.

Fuck yeah - professional homosexual and purveyor of all things fabulous!
Usually it’s dominated by straight masculine guys with the occasional “he plays gay so hot on [x tv show]!” Or porn stars - masculine, straight-seeming/gay-for-pay kind of porn stars. This year a significant number (including 8 of the top 20) are openly gay, and most of them are not traditionally butch guys. It’s finally ok to say they’re hot anyway.
So the top 3 are Blaine, Kurt, and Cooper?
