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.

even John is like what the fuck you say.
It has come to my attention from a couple friends that people on this site were quite rude and mean to them. One completely deleted her account. I’m so afraid of the mean people on this site I won’t post a picture of my Zombie Hunter costume from a night at garder’s book store here in town. One where if I get enough votes on FB I get a nice gift card. I simply won’t because I know my cellulite and big arms and chubby belly would be ripped to sheds with mean words from people who maybe don’t look any better because they are mean on the inside.
Everyone really needs to take a step back on this site and think before they start typing. I’m sometimes almost ashamed of some of the members of my fandoms because of how they treat one another here. When did we all become so snobby and elitist? Is it just a few people?
I am taking a break from tumblr, but I wanted to say this because the main reason is how terrified I am to post my own picture when on the other sites I use it doesn’t scare me at all.
