Just watched a lady pay with food stamps at the grocery store. She was wearing a very nice North Face coat that I can’t afford. Thanks again Obama.

Found this gem on facebook. I don’t think people understand, it was just Christmas and people get gifts. But no, if you’re poor, you’re not allowed to have a North Face jacket because it might make someone else jealous. There should be a law that if you get a good gift that might make someone jealous and you also receive food stamps, that gift should be revoked by the government immediately and then given to said jealous person because how dare youuuuuu.

And if you dare save up for something expensive you should be allowed to buy it but then you are only allowed to give it to the jealous person who doesn’t receive food stamps. 

But seriously, what is with people making automatic assumptions. “How dare you have your nails done if you’re poor!” “How dare you have a smart phone if you’re poor!” There is a certain standard that people have for those less fortunate. You must dress in squalor and if you dare dress nicely you’re feeding off the system and Obama should be ashamed. 

So I said, “I think in these types of situation it’s best not to assume something about a person you don’t know but instead be grateful that you don’t have to be one at the store in a North Face jacket given to you by your aunt or someone nice being judged because you don’t look poor enough.”

You don’t see poor people doing the opposite. “OMG she can’t even afford a North Face jacket yet she’s buying food. SMDH.”

Plus, it was probably a lie, let’s be honest.

for real that comment (if real) was made by someone who has never set foot in a thrift store. I bought a new(ish) Brooks Brothers suit for $35 the other day. I’m sure you could spend way more than that at Walmart (well, not for suits but like, jeans and shit) and not have the quality.

So really, why does knowing how to find a good bargain/dress yourself (because that north face jacket might just get you that job you are interviewing for) make someone less? They are trying to take care of their shit, clearly.

zerogoukki asked: i'm kinda disappointed that you don't know more about what's happening in the gaza strip rn, dion. first off, the human shields thing is a myth frequently spread by israel as an excuse to kill and imprison palestinians. secondly, when gazans build tunnels, it's usually because nothing gets in or out of gaza otherwise -- it's an open-air prison. third, hamas didn't even kidnap those teenagers; it was a lone cell of extremists from the quaramesh clan of hebron, which is in the west bank (cont)

dion-thesocialist:

(cont) third, israel is not targeting militants, at least not specifically. AT BEST, they are blasting homes, hospitals, at least one school, etc to bits and hoping that maybe there are some militants inside. really, they’re just trying to kill as many gazans as possible. hamas is horrible, i understand that, but it is acting in retaliation. israel has also been using illegal weapons that are literally CANCER BOMBS (look up DIME weapons). i’d be happy to send you some sources if you’d like.

All of this I could accept if it wasn’t for Hamas rejecting ceasefires and firing rockets during ceasefires. I mean, I would need a source that confirms that every bad thing ever said about Hamas is just a lie.

I mean as far as the human shield thing being a myth there’s this: http://www.unrwa.org/newsroom/press-releases/unrwa-condemns-placement-rockets-second-time-one-its-schools

And the UN is known to be pro-palestinian. I can’t support Israel, I can’t support Palestine either. I’m only talking about their governments. There are so many disillusioned Israelis you wouldn’t believe. The majority on both sides don’t want this violence, it is bad men in places of power that continues it. In my opinion.

Buffy breast feeds Cody on Sesame Street (x)

This was 1976. Big Bird understood and was wholly accepting and empathetic toward Buffy breastfeeding in public, and Big Bird is meant to be the equivalent of a preschool aged child, but every single day on social media, adults exclaim disgust toward breastfeeding in public and misogyny at the parents who do so. People, you’re less evolved than
Big Bird was 38 years ago. Grow the hell up.
