And how hard is it to land even a minimum-wage job? This year, the Ivy League college admissions acceptance rate was 8.9%. Last year, when Walmart opened its first store in Washington, D.C., there were more than 23,000 applications for 600 jobs, which resulted in an acceptance rate of 2.6%, making the big box store about twice as selective as Harvard and five times as choosy as Cornell. Telling unemployed people to get off their couches (or out of the cars they live in or the shelters where they sleep) and get a job makes as much sense as telling them to go study at Harvard.
we are here to abolish the genders
oh, so we won't use gendered pronouns anymore?
no those are important

What’s happening in Palestine is just an awful crime and it needs to stop now
I have to ask. Are you saying that Hamas terrorists firing rockets at Israeli civilian targets is awful? Or, are you saying that the IDF moving into Gaza and making precision strikes to get rid of those missiles is awful?
Poor people. In Gaza they’re bombing hospitals and civilians. They’re killing normal people. Under the pretext of killing Hamas members but we all know it’s an ethnic cleansing. Just like hitler did. This needs to stop.

We’re getting kicked out of our only…
Christ Almighty, Tys, I had no idea it was this bad… I’m praying for you so hard, honey. I wish I had more sway with the decisions at work but all I can do is pray! My heart goes out to you. <:[
Everyone, please at least give this good lady’s post a read and signal boost if you have nothing to spare. Her situation is pretty urgent.
Been way too close to this situation for comfort in recent days to not reblog. Just wish I had the means to help beyond signal boosting.
