2014 is so close I can almost taste the Croatoan virus.
The time has come.
You’ll thank me later.
Does that mean Chuck will be back soon!?
Well there is a prophet vacancy now…
Members of Congress are living off food stamps for a week to protest Republican cuts. It’s a challenge for them, but GOP cuts would hurt millions of everyday Americans.
Why does this not have more publicity. This needs it!
Signal boosting this A) because it deserves to be seen by more people, and b) because I appreciate some members of Congress are actually willing to see what it’s like living on food stamps in order to make their point about how horrifying cutting food stamps would be.
News flash, regressives: people on food stamps do not load up on Snickers bars and filet mignon. They’re limited in what they can buy, and oftentimes, it’s not enough to get by on. Go on thinking these are entitlements that let minorities live lives of luxury, comfortable in the knowledge that you’ll never go hungry.
You privileged, elitist pricks.
Actually food stamps are not limited to certain items. You can buy anything that’s food with them. Working at a grocery store I know people would come in and load up on poptarts and cups instead of real food that will nourish themselves and their kids. I’ve also seen people get hundreds of dollars of crab legs with three different cards. Everyone in their household applies and gets food stamps. I’ve personally been on them myself when my mother lost her job, and some people actually need them, but there’s so many that don’t. They’re abusing the system and making others suffer for it. I believe there SHOULD be restrictions on what you can buy with EBT. Like no soda, and no candy. Make it like the WIC system. Even now I work at a gas station, and people come in every say asking if we take EBT. There is not a god damn thing in here worth wasting my tax dollars on. Seriously. This system is broken and needs fixing.
My friend went to a nerd factory. They gave him a bag of rejects and said “Enjoy your bag of diabetes.”
WHAT IS HAPPENING HERE?!??!??!
It’s quicksand. Quicksand is much thicker than water, which is why things sink so slowly. By that same logic, one can walk on its surface if you go fast enough and with little enough pressure, like skipping a stone on water.
THAT IS FANTASTIC
Non-Newtonian fluids, everyone.
As a child I believed that quicksand was going to be a much bigger problem in my life than it has turned out to be. Little did I know I could defeat it by simply waddling like a penguin.
Same here! The 80s gave me unrealistic expectations on how much quicksand I would encounter in my life.
