Considering all the media speculation on whether or not Palin's gender will be enough to draw votes from ex-Clinton supporters, (nevermind Palin's horrifying politics towards women) protests like this are a breath of fresh air.

Ryder Ripps is one of my besties, he is also the beatmaster/rapmaster in my group 3Pac$. He has been self-perpetuating his fame on the internet since I've known him.

Are you registered to vote in this next, very important election? I'm always surprised by how many young people are not, or mean to and don't get around to registering in time. And since every state has different regulations and cut off dates for registration, its not always easy to do. Guess what? Your government likes it that way! So, please, make sure you are registered, because the cut off dates are really soon, and you don't want to be left out. You can find out the voter registration deadlines for your state here. OR, just got here and register today. Read More
