Jail, Memes, and News: 1502 WORLD NEWS PUSSY RIOT PROTESTS July 16 Members of the Russian protest-art group, Pussy Riot, charged the field during the World Cup final on Sunday while dressed in Russian-police uniforms Four members of the Russian protest-art group, Pussy Riot, charged the stadium at Sunday’s World Cup match wearing Russian-police uniforms. Russian authorities have charged the three women and one man for disrupting the World Cup and wearing police uniforms illegally. The two offenses carry maximum fines of 10,000 roubles ($161 USD) and 1,500 roubles ($24.09 USD). ___ The protest group said it was demonstrating against the abuse of human rights in Russia. The group released a statement saying the intention of their protest was to make Russian authorities: _ Free all political prisoners. - Stop jailing people for social-media “likes.” - Stop illegal arrests at protests. - Allow political competition. - Stop fabricating criminal cases and putting people in jail for no reason. - Turn the earthly policeman into a Heavenly Policeman. ___ The four Pussy Riot members came on the field during the second half of the Croatia v France match (52 minutes into the match), and lasted on the field for about 25 seconds. ___ One of the protesters engaged with French soccer player Kylian Mbappé on the field, giving him a high-five before being taken away. The male protester was grabbed by Croatian defender Dejan Lovren. ___ The three women protesters were identified as Nika Nikulshina, Olga Kurachyova and Olga Pakhtusova. The man was identified as Pyotr Verzilov. ___ Photos: Daniel Malmberg - Getty ; REUTERS - Kai Pfaffenbach, Darren Staples

Forget raising the minimum wage. This is much much better idea.</p> <p>The minimum wage could actually drop if we had basic income.</p> <p>But Americans would never go for it. Miserably slogging through 12 hour days and having businesses open 24/7 is too engrained in our culture.</p> </blockquote> <p>“BUT WHERE WILL THE GOVERNMENT GET THE MONEY?” screamed Joe Schmoe, slamming a meaty fist onto the table and getting mouth-froth all over the front of his greying tank top. “You libt*rds all think money grows on TREES!! HAHA!”<br/><br/>“But where will people get the incentive to work?!” Mindy Bindy cried, flapping her hands in front of her face. She’d had a fear of the unemployed lollygagging about ever since she was a child and her mother told her to be afraid of the unemployed lollygagging about. “You think people should get paid for <em>nothing</em>? I work <em>hard</em> for my money!”</p> <p>“But who will serve me?” grumbled Marty McMoneybags. “Who will make me feel important? Who will do my laundry and cook my food and stand in front of me wearing a plastic smile while I take out all my stress—because I <em>do </em>have a lot of stress, you know, being this rich is <em>stressful</em>—on them?” He paused and straightened out the piles of hundred dollar bills on the desk in front of him, then raised his two watery, outraged eyes up to the Heavens. “Lord, if there are no poor people, how will I know that I’m <em>rich</em>??”</p> </blockquote> <p>I laughed. This is perfect! Well said!</p> </blockquote> <p>The thing is, while I’m sure you could scrape up a few people who’d be willing to just float by on a guaranteed minimum income? For most people the choice to work would be a no-brainer. “Hmmm. I can get by on 33k a year, or I can take that part time job and make 48k… enough to move to a better apartment, maybe take the family on vacation. Sold.” Hell, most people would want to work simply because it gives one a sense of dignity and something to do with one’s time. (Speaking as someone who’s been unemployed, on extended sick leave, etc. in her time, the boredom and sense of isolation that comes with not having a job is almost as bad as the humiliation of having to depend on other people for one’s survival.)</p> <p>And with this system, part-time jobs and “non-skilled” jobs would be much more readily available because nobody would need to work two or three jobs just to stay afloat!</p> <p>Which would ALSO mean that employers and customers couldn’t shamelessly exploit employees the way they can today, because if losing a job weren’t necessarily a financial disaster, more people would be willing to walk out on jobs where they weren’t being treated with dignity.</p> <p>And if this also applies to students (and it should) then student loans would become much less of a problem, and fewer people would flunk out of school because of having to juggle studies and work.</p> <p>Far fewer people would be forced to stay with abusive partners, parents or roommates because they couldn’t afford to move out.</p> <p>And the thing is, all those people who suddenly had money? They’d be spending it. They’d be getting all the stuff they can’t afford now - new clothes, books, toys, locally-produced food, car repairs - and with each purchase money would flow BACK to the government, because VAT, also income tax.</p> <p>The unemployed and/or disabled wouldn’t need special support any more - which would also mean the government could fire however many admins who are currently engaged in humiliating - *cough* making sure those people aren’t getting money they don’t deserve. Same for medical benefits and pensions. And I’m no legal scholar, but I somehow imagine less financial desperation would lead to less petty crime, and hence less need for police and security everywhere?</p> <p>TL;DR Doomie thinks this is a good idea, laughs at those who protest.</p> </blockquote> <p>reblogging for more top commentary</p> </blockquote> <p><strong>They tried something like this out in Canada as a sort of social experiment, called Mincome. What they found was that, on the whole, people continued to work about as much as they did before. Only new mothers and teenagers worked substantially less hours. </strong></p> <p><strong>But wait, there’s more. Because parents were spending just a little more time at home and involved with their families, test scores increased. Because teens didn’t have to work to support their families, drop-out rates decreased. Crime rates, hospital visits, psychiatric hospitalizations and domestic abuse rates all dropped, as well. More adults pursued higher education. Those who continued to work reported more job flexibility and more opportunity to choose employment they preferred.</strong></p> <p><strong>Basically, now you can go prove to your asshole family members that society won’t collapse without poor people for you to feel better than.</strong></p> </blockquote> <p>*muffled sound of conservatives imploding in the distance*</p> </blockquote> <p style=""> I’ve reblogged this every time it’s come around but I’ve never seen the results of the Swiss election that the graphic reports.
