Not All Poor People All Lazy Moochers...


Recommended Posts

you can't beat that into conservative heads. even when they are poor themselves. So all the red states are lazy conservatives? since they suck more tax dollars then blue states do.

Interestingly enough, Rolling Stone reporter Matt Taibbi discusses the hatred we have for the weak and the poor in this country.

I'm a big fan of Mr. Taibbi, and I do think he has a point. I've spent some time in the poverty trenches it sucks. Now most people showed me a great deal of empathy. They know I'm intelligent, educated, hard-working, frugal and resourceful. I had fallen on some hard times like so many of my fellow citizens.

However, I did have a few people accuse me of lying about having a college degree, called me stupid and lazy, accused me of being an amoral slut, etc. These people weren't exactly more numerous; they were just more vocal and mean-spirited.

And I totally want to read Mr. Taibbi's new book and write a review for my blog:

Well, this is just peachy:

      My sweet pup was diagnosed with a brain tumor in September. She passed away in my arms on Thanksgiving morning. It all happened so fast. She didn't want to eat anything the day before, but prior to that was ok. Knew it was near time and had booked an appointment to take her next week. However, she decided for me. She was only 8 and really was one of the best dogs. She never met a stranger, human or dog. Life isn't the same without her.

      I made my first Granny Square! After nearly 30 years of knitting and crocheting this was a project I never did. Until now! I needed something to do with my rest of very colourful yarn and now I am very happy. I need to try different needles with my yarns but I think I found something nice for the future.
      I needed only 3 different youtube videos until I found a person who explained the concept slowly and repetitive and with words I can understand. I hate when these tutorials make me feel dumb.

      You know what I hate most about subtle racism? The gaslighting. Stop cosplaying as a nice person and say it with your chest.

      We had to put our 14 year old dachshund, Trinket, down today.  She was fine Thursday, but by mid-morning yesterday, it was apparent that something was really wrong,  She had zero energy, lost her appetite and began walking into corners.  By morning I knew it was time for her to have her final visit to the vet.  She had lost about a pound and a half recently.  RIP, Trinket!

      Horrific! A 6 year old boy was murdered, and mother severly injured, in a hate crime in Chicago. Reports say they are both Palestinian Muslims and were specifically targeted because of that. Thankfully the man who did it is in custody 
      This is pure evil
