Bad, Books, and Clothes: he Swiss are voting on a plan to end poverty forever. Step one: give every adult $33,600 a year, no strings attached. There is no step two.

HAHA!”“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 nothing?

This is perfect! Well said! 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.) 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! 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. 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. Far fewer people would be forced to stay with abusive partners, parents or roommates because they couldn’t afford to move out. 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. 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? TL;DR Doomie thinks this is a good idea, laughs at those who protest. reblogging for more top commentary 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.  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. 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. The picture is awesome, but read the commentary, that’s what I’m reblogging for. The only reason people are against this is because when people are financially stable there is less crime (therefore less prison industrial complex free labour) there are less medical problems (IE less hospital visits meaning less money for the medical and pharmaceutical companies) and the point I am making is that a full guaranteed income to all means that those wealthy people at the top get less money and so they try and fool you into thinking it’s bad so you help encourage them lining their pockets.

Children, Community, and Facebook: Verizon 1x 3:15 PM 61%D Post Turns out cutting off 15" of her hair last time she touched scissors wasn't a big enough lesson.she cut her bangs AGAIN. So now she's BALD. I think this time the lessons gonna sink in a little deeper! Write a comment.. Post News Feed Requests MessagesNotifications More thetwelvewords: matt-ruins-your-shit: jackpowerx: savage-affinity: Context to the story: The girl cut her hair once so that she could have bangs. The mother disapproved and decided to cut off 15 of her hair as punishment. The girl later again decided to change her hair style and the above was the result; she shaved her daughters head. Having a few personal experiences with this kind of invasive behaviour it really hurts to see someone go through these kinds of things, where the parent tries to live vicariously through their childs life, to attempt to shape them and make their decisions for them depending on what THEY would do and give their child NO independence or self expression. Thankfully, this mother thought her actions were 100% justifiable and posted it to Facebook as a bit of a “haha, teach my kid a lesson” and has been hit with brutal recrimination from her community and has had visits from Child Protective Services. For so many young (and older) girls their hair is their self expression, and in several months I hope this girl will have hers back. Children are not their parent’s possessions. Children are NOT their parents’ possessions. CHILDREN ARE NOT THEIR PARENTS’ POSSESSIONS!!! CPS is an overreaction but still what a cunt, that girl looks more than old enough to be making decisions about her own fucking hair. Here’s a helpful guide for parents, if another kid were to do it to your child and you would be incensed and call it bullying/assault etc…don’t do it yourself you stupid fat fuck. I know I am a throwback but why would the child not fight? I fought back physically over so much less than something like what a shaved head is to a female. Not a virtue signal blah blah… just an expression of amazement that the child would not stand up and say no decisively. Are you fucking seriously wondering why a literal child being abused by their parent didn’t “fight back”? This is the woman willing to forcibly cut her own child’s hair and then post pictures to humiliate her publicly. If the kid had “stood up and said no decisively” there’s a good chance she would’ve gotten her teeth knocked in.

With debt levels spiraling out of control as they are, america might have to do this in the near future, in order to prevent economic collapse from people just not having money to spend. The only problem i forsee with this is that, in order to get the money to distribute, taxes on rich people would have to increase by a lot, and if taxes raise too high, they just fucking move to another country to avoid paying them. If there was a way to prevent this, or if the whole world implemented a standard like this at the same time thereby removing the incentive to flee tax hikes, then this would absolutely work out great

Candy, Costco, and Food: TABATCHNICK TABATCHNICK Crean of Musbroom Mushroom SOUP SOUP TABATCHNICK 2 Cream of Musbroom SOUP ION sophygurl: optais-amme: 10 Things Food Banks Need But Won’t Ask For Some items are in high demand at the food bank and you may not realize it. Because they aren’t essentials, the staff doesn’t publicly ask for them. A survey asked volunteers what items people would be most appreciative of and we’ve listed the top 10 below. If you’re looking for an easy way to help out, pick some of these up while shopping and drop them off at one of our area food banks. 1. Spices. Think about it. People who rely on the food bank eat a lot of canned food, rice, oatmeal, white bread, etc. They love spices. Seasoned salt, cayenne pepper, chili powder, cumin, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, oregano, basil and so on. 2. Feminine Products. Can you imagine being worried about affording these? Pads, tampons, panty liners, etc. Recommended: Buy in bulk at Costco for donating. 3. Chocolate. People don’t need it, but think about being in their shoes and how nice it would be to be given a chocolate bar or brownie mix along with your essentials. 4. Toiletries. Grocery stores are great about donating surplus or unsold food, but they have no reason to donate toilet paper, tooth paste, soap, deodorant, shampoo, etc. Food stamps often don’t cover these. 5. Canned meats and jerky. This isn’t true of all food banks, but some struggle to give users enough protein. 6. Crackers and tortillas. They don’t spoil and everybody likes them. 7. Baby toiletries. Diapers, baby wipes, baby formula, baby shampoo, baby soap, baby food, bottles, etc. 8. Soup packets. Sometimes you look at rice, beans, instant potatoes, and cans of vegetable and think, “What do I make with this?” Hearty soup is a complete meal. 9. Socks. From a former homeless person: “Socks mean the world to you. They keep you warm, make you feel like you have something new, and just comfort you.” 10. Canned fruit other than pineapple. Food banks get a lot of pineapple donated. Their clients love it when other kinds of fruit are available. [SOURCE] And remember! Food banks love cash donations because it allows them to buy whatever they need! As a sometimes food pantry user myself and with friends who rely on them to varying degrees - I want to specifically stress some of these:  - non-food items like tp and feminine products and baby needs are SO incredibly important because 1) they are rarely donated, 2) people who have food stamps can often afford their food staples but might still need help with toiletries and cleaning items, and 3) folks who are homeless especially need that kinda stuff!  - treats! Like, yes of course, if I am in need I am appreciative of canned goods and rice and pasta and stuff. That’s great for putting together healthy meals. But everyone needs a treat once in awhile - so when there is candy or chips or a nice expensive brand of organic something or other available at the pantry - it is just so incredibly exciting. It can be a humiliating experience to visit a pantry, and it can make you feel very much less than. So to get a treat of some sort just really really makes a difference. And believe me - there are enough loaves of bread, cans of fruit, and dried beans to go around at these places. You won’t be starving someone by donating some microwave popcorn or chocolate chips now and again. I promise!

Anaconda, Chill, and Money: Mike @ProgPro Jeepers Creepers 3 comes out soon and you know what that means right? It means don't waste your money on it the director's a child molester. 9/13/17, 6:34 PM 4,620 Retweets 7,359 Likes geekandmisandry: hughmungous2u: screaminghere: weavemama: This is true. The director of Jeepers Creepers 3, Victor Salva, is a convicted child molester. He sexually assaulted a child while on the set of a movie he directed back in the 90s. He filmed the assault and was also charged with possession of child pornography. Don’t support this movie or give it a cent of your money. It’s already hard enough for sexual assault victims to come out with what happened, especially if their abuser has a lot of power and money. Don’t add on to the trend of forgiving celebrity rapists. STOP GIVING THESE MEN FREE PASSES.  don’t scroll past this with a wave of the hand, this is 100% real. (italics include links)  aside from molesting a 12-year-old boy, this man admitted to oral sex with a child under fourteen and was also found guilty of having possession of child pornography (in the form of magazines and tapes) in his home. salva made a sex tape of him and a minor (actually multiple sex tapes) where he both gave and received oral sex. now, for some reason, child molester doesn’t elicit the type of outrage that i’d hope it would, so i’ll put it a different way. victor salva had sex with a minor, therefore he is a rapist. salva committed statutory rape, and he does not deserve to be breathing, much less have his movie watched. mmmm dont care, ive been waiting for JC-3 for a long long time.  Im paying to see it.  so fu. you support trans people, just as sick if not sicker.I do not support CP but  this is jeepers creepers. so in this remote case I Don’t care. its a movie. chill out ferris You DO support it though. You just called the rape of a child on the same level as supporting trans people. You’re a really sick fuck

Looks like they just pulled a bunch of random figures out of their butts. It’s stated in the books that tuition to Hogwarts is “free for all children in Britain”. I don’t know why they thought it wouldn’t be - it’s a British high school, not a college. So there, you just saved yourself $42,024. In Chamber of Secrets, Mrs. Weasley emptied her entire bank account which contained only two galleons [£10 / US$20] and she managed to buy all five children’s entire set of books and potion ingredients with this, as well as Ginny’s robes, hat, clock, cauldron, and wand!!! And we know she bought all of these as she mentioned having to buy them. The fact that she bought all of these with only £10 pretty much proves how absolutely ridiculous CNNs estimation is. If you want more proof, the actual cost of Harry’s want is far over estimated here, and the exact price in both pounds as US dollars can easily be found right within the books! Harry’s wand is bought for seven galleons, a galleon being worth about five pounds [mentioned by JK Rowling in an interview and in FBAWTFT/QTTA] means that his wand was £35, or US$53. So there’s some straight-out-of-the-books-and-word-of-god proof that the figures CNN have given are way off the mark. Not to mention the fact that even if you don’t go to Hogwarts, as a magical human you’re gonna have to buy a wand anyway if you want to do magic. As for the school books, I’ve done an approximation based on various prices given through-out the books and on Pottermore. While these prices involve a substantial amount of guess-work, I think you’ll agree that my calculation is far more accurate than CNNs: The Standard book of Spells costs one sickle [29p / US59c]. On the back of my comic relief copy of Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them it says it costs fourteen sickles [£4.60 / US$8.26]. One Pottermore, all text books are one galleon [£4.97  / US$10.17] - however Pottermore currency only uses galleons so it’s likely they have rounded off. Lockhart’s books, the most expensive in the series, are five galleons on Pottermore meaning that the exchange rate in the books puts them around two galleons and fourteen sickles [£14.60 / US$20.80]. If we put a high average on this and assume that all textbooks are approximately a galleon [they are likely much less], and that each year has around seven required reading books, the entire price for seven years worth of books would be forty-nine galleons, which equals approximately £243, or US$367 - and remember, this is the maximum estimated price for the textbooks. For the minimum, we need to consider that the Weasleys get a lot of things second hand, with Ginny’s copy of A Begginers Guide To Transfiguration being described as “a very old, very battered copy” - likely no more than five sickles. If they got all their books around that price, it would cost them no more than £14 / US$21 for the entire seven years worth! So school books, far from being US$516, fall somewhere between US$14 and US$367 for the entire seven years at Hogwarts. Next we have robe, glove, cloak, and hat prices - these are never mentioned in the books or on Pottermore, so I can’t account for that. However I seriously doubt it’s as a high as they’ve got here. Considering books in the wizarding world are generally much cheaper than in the muggle world, I think it’s fairly safe to assume that clothing is as well. Likely a maximum of a galleon for a single set of robes. They’ve also forgotten a huge number of things - cauldrons, potion ingredients, scales, and star charts, among others. So yeah, I really don’t know where they came up with these figures. It looks like some guy just wanted to make a story about how expensive Hogwarts would be and put a bunch of American college figures together and thought “yeah, this looks good.” Do not fuck with a fandom.

No, no, it’s not that!  OP is reacting to the fact that this 8 year old has, apparently, drawn Aoba, a character from Dramatical Murder, which is a video game that is DEFINITELY NOT APPROPRIATE for an 8 year old.  I think the anime might be…less explicit?  It’s up on Crunchyroll without any warnings so I assume it’s not actually pornographic, but still….. this character gets fisted by a robot lion in the video game A robot snake fucks him as well The robot lion used cake frosting as lube He gets trapped in his own mind vividly hallucinating of his pet dog as a human fucking him while ripping off his arm and eating him.

Bad, Confused, and Cute: HONK CHOICE CHOICE abortionNO.org I 888 929 holyromanhomo: c-bassmeow: thethotsthoughts: c-bassmeow: thethotsthoughts: c-bassmeow: My freshmen year a pro-life group came to protest abortion blocking a main pedestrian avenue with a truck that had images of dead babies and dead fetuses. They also had a massive display comparing abortion to world hunger, the holocaust, and war (with gruesome images). So we students formed a counter protest. As poor as I am- employed or unemployed- I always make a monthly donation to Planned Parenthood because abortion rights are vital to a woman but also to society. The regressive Republican Party is doing all it can to inhibit a women’s right to control her destiny. Respect lost. Ur disgusting. See u in hell Hell doesn’t exist because idk science and fucking logic tell me otherwise. Also i can care less what u think of me. Go thump bibles somewhere else cus this is the wrong blog to do that with  Hahahahhahaha i can care less what u think wow ur so edgy like I was definitely expecting a more mature response for some reason. I guess common sense isn’t all too common. My bad for having the privilege of a private education that’ll put me further ahead of you in life and will allow me to easily move on from petty remarks made by petty people like you. Sorry, your parents failed you. Oh so private education is where you trump me? I got a free ride to my backup school (UConn) and my backup school was still  a pretty  dope backup school it’s a research one university and top 20 public school in the nation.  I don’t need to prove myself to you that I am intellectual especially after you comment with “see u in hell”  “ur disgusting”   …… so …. yeah. Nice try tho it was cute.  I’m so confused, like first, why the fuck was someone offended by you counter protesting against anti-choice assholes when your blog info literally identifies you as a feminist in the first couple of lines, like why did they even start following you? Next, why the fuck would @thethotsthoughts (fuck, can’t tag them, but the irony of them trying to call you edgy with a URL like that is hilarious) make himself seem even more like an idiot by doubling down on this whole elitist bullshit, as if tons of public schools are just as good, if not better, than private schools. Beyond that, whatever caliber of education he got was clearly wasted on someone too stupid to even spell, much less know when to shut the fuck up and keep their unsolicited opinions to themselves. Honestly, this is so many levels of pathetic and when you just throw on that ignorant Christian bullshit on top it’s almost too hard to believe that an actual real person this stupid even exists. As for me, I’ll be chillin with Seb in hell, along with all the other “edgy” atheists. Haha I love you 😘😘 there needs to be more POC atheists that are outspoken and tbh gay Christians + pro-lifers are so sad. Like Imma have so much fun burning in hell with all my sodomites getting that big demon dick! 🔥🔥🔥
