agingwunderkind:

if the government is going to continue to allow bosses to pay people a below-subsistence level of pay for their work, thus allowing us to potentially qualify for aid (be it cash or medical assistance or energy assistance or cheaper housing, etc.) it should guarantee us a minimum income and stop…

if you want to ask a bisexual or asexual person about their sexual history to verify that they’re queer, but you don’t want them to take it the wrong way, try this useful communication technique:

give them twenty dollars and go away.

I’m not a member of the group so I’m not 100% sure, but I believe this is also the polite way of asking a transgender person about their genitalia. 

I firmly encourage all people to hand me $20 and walk away.

seriously, do not fucking tell me money doesnt = happiness and all that bullshit. i thought i had like 80 cents in my bank account, and i was all worried about only having like $4 (cash/coins) on me only to find out that i had money in my account and now my mood is seriously way up
this past week my depression and anxiety have been exacerbated cos of money worries. so if you have enough money to be chanting shit like money cant buy you happiness, good for you, but remember not all of us are as privileged as that. dont fucking bother and shame people for being concerned with money, i hate arseholes like that

I read a few years back that “money doesn’t buy happiness” is only applicable after you earn $60,000 a year or more. Like, if you earn 250k/year, you won’t actually be any happier as a millionaire, but if you earn 25,000 a year, you will be way happier earning 60,000 a year than you were at 25k. Because of exactly what you said - being broke as shit is scary and miserable and the less you have, the worse it gets.  

Even if your low-paying job is fulfilling, you still have to freak out about bills, you’re probably in debt and digging yourself in deeper (waves from the bottom of the hole), and you’re constantly one crisis away from being totally fucked.  It’s pretty fucking hard to be “non-materialist” and “meditate on your blessings” when you’re trying to figure out if your paycheck will come in in time to pay a late bill before the service is cancelled.

Anyhow, yes, people who like to go on about how “money doesn’t buy happiness” can kiss my ass.

Preach all of that truth.

"There are Negroes who will never fight for freedom.There are Negroes who will seek profit for themselves alone from the struggle. There are even some Negroes who will cooperate with their oppressors. These facts should distress no one.Every minority and every people has its share of opportunists, profiteers, free-loaders and escapists.”-Martin Luther King, Jr.

Basically about new blacks.
