I think that list is far too generous. I think our nation's priorities go something like:

1) Rich people.

2) Guns for white men. Women and men of color need not apply. (See the black woman in Florida jailed for 20 years for firing a warning shot in the air when her abusive ex was coming at her, a shot even the ex says was justified. See also how South Carolina (IIRC) says women can't use their Stand Your Ground law against their abusers.)

3) Wars.

4) Zygotes, fetuses.

5) Keeping straight, white, wealthy cis-men in power.

6) The Kardashians.

7) Keeping us afraid.

....

263) Actual children.

(And even the supposed interest in zygotes and fetuses is really about keeping women in our place. If people actually cared about zygotes and fetuses, they'd be lobbying for universal maternal health care and stronger protections for pregnant workers, and against teratogenic, mutagenic, and endocrine disrupting industrial contamination.)

I think you're right.

And on your following comment, too...

Technically, neither did mine. I asked once about putting up photographs on Twitter, since a picture paints a THOUSAND words... :D

Maybe you can put up 14.9% of a picture...

Oh! Or a picture with as much text on it as you want. :)
