i really hate seeing children at gay rallies. in most cases, they don’t understand what they’re doing and what they’re promoting. i think most children are pressured into going to gay rallies by their parents and, therefore, pressured into believing in gay marriage.
i really hate seeing children in churches. in most cases, they don’t understand what they’re doing and what they’re promoting. i think most children are pressured into going to churches by their parents and, therefore, pressured into believing in a magic man in the sky who will send them to hell if they touch themselves or eat shrimp.
Perfect commentary from getoutofthewelfaretag:
"IF she is real, and IF she is getting cash assistance, then she is in work training for a minimum of 30 hours a week and she has to provide job search logs to her caseworker on the regular.
IF she is real, and IF she is getting cash assistance, then she has a 5 year LIFETIME limit of receiving that benefit.
IF she is real, and IF she is getting cash assistance, then filing for child support from all the children’s fathers was a requirement for being approved. Meaning, if they’re not paying, that’s on them, not her.
IF she is real, and IF she is getting cash assistance, she is still broke as hell. I could barely support myself making $1200/mo, much less 4 other people who would be completely dependent on me.
But considering all of those factors, it’s pretty doubtful that she’s real,”
She’s probably not real at all. 1200 is nothing. Then she’s has 4 kids, if they are in day care that is probably all her money.
Look at it like this. Here rent is less than everywhere else, you can get two bedroom for around 600 dollars.
Okay BUT gas and electric still has to be paid. +235 dollars.
She still has to get groceries. She may be getting food stamps but again she has 4 kids. She probably will run out of food as food stamps have been cut.
Kids need clothes, they out grow shoes, coats, etc. they break things, they are involved in extra curricular activities. I’m not even going to get into how much getting for kids dressed from walmart alone can cost. If they are in sports or the arts add more money.
Oh and then how is she getting around? I think bus passes here are around 90 dollars for a zone 1 monthly. 25 for a weekly. She and Her kids will more than likely need them to get back and forth if she doesn’t have a car.
I have a honda, to fill my gas tank is 35 dollars. I’m a new driver my car insurance is 215 dollars. Does she have a warranty? Add 130 dollars a month. Oh and if she didn’t buy it out right add the car payment 170 every two weeks.
1200 dollars a month for one person goes fast.
Oh add doctor bills, medicine, co pays, trips to the barber shop, beauty salon, toys, glasses and braces to that too.
And to be fair, if our tax dollars are keeping her and her family alive we should be glad. You know what’s despicable? Billions of tax dollars being spent on wars that are killing innocent people world wide. Be enraged about that.
Puts stuff in perspective, huh?
Let me just take a second to make a point that little stories like this are meant to get you riled against your peers and people poorer than you. You’re supposed to be angry (that YOU’RE paying for her) when this is obviously someone below your own means (if she’s real) and probably actually needs the welfare money. Realize that getting mad at someone poorer than you about how they’re using money “you” give them is what the established power wants you to do - not just because then you’re not looking at them, you’re looking in the complete wrong direction.
Think about how much more of your taxes goes to subsidizing corporations than goes to welfare, and then ask yourself why you care so much.
Get angry about how the people in power are spending your money. That’s the real problem.

the brief wondrous deposition of Bastien Goober
let’s talk about that hack kid, Bastien Goober
and the fact that he’s a giant loser
but the ride so far’s been pretty suber
sorry, super - that’s a deposition blooper
and you’re a real trooper
asking the same shit to this same Goober
in the same backwards hat stupor that throws eggs
and makes his neighbors move sooner
Mr. Goober, if it may please the court
is it true you think one kind of beer is a deport?
turn any poem into a steve roggenbuck poem: this is a good & funy idea.. this generator by adam holwerda can “translate” thing’s into “steve rogenbuck style.” the misspelings are actually prety accurate i feel. of course my true style goes deeper than that, i feel the results could still be skewed in more drastic ways and it would be fun.. i would like to see it insert extra fricks, yolos, and boosts at random intervals maybe haha.. or whole lines from my actual poems.. idk hehe. anyway check it out here :)
In-app (fight for) purchase
What if headphones
Helped you listen better
Instead of hiding you
I got an app notification that said
Someone next to you needs a hug
So I hugged the five people next to me
Remembering that each of these is a lonely sad animal
Dealing with the conflicts between logic and biology
Between society and the need to feel a part of _____
Apart from moments like that
Things are pretty depressing
Probably even for you
