I'm just a girl trying to learn, experience, share, and do as much as I can to be happy and live life. This blog is dedicated to exploring my goals, dreams, inspirations, connections, randomness, thoughts, obsessions and trials as I make my way through life in this awe-inspiring universe.
Don’t be mad cuz I’m doin’ me better than you doin’ you
Protesters from across St Louis turned up and turned out for the first St Louis County Council Meeting since Mike Brown’s Death. (Part I)
The St Louis County Council wasn’t as bad as Ferguson’s Council, but still very few answers and virtually no accountability from the folks who unleashed unholy hell on the residents of Ferguson, following Brown’s murder. #staywoke #farfromover
"…but still very few answers and virtually no accountability from the fold who UNLEASHED UNHOLY HELL ON THE RESIDENTS OF FERGUSON, following Brown’s murder.”
Wake up people! Why are we not all in Missouri right now deafening its government and police force with our screams of unrest, unhappiness, and unapologetic claim, no our RIGHT, to social equality and accountability? Make your voice heard and stand with the people of Ferguson, for they are all of us. If we do not support them and our right to social justice, who can we expect to stand behind us when our time comes?
Interactive map reveals the horrific damage a meteorite strike would cause
How would your town fare after such an impact? This tool spells out the damage in heart-stopping detail.
Minimum wage should be linked to the poverty level.
This is basic economic fact.
A business that claims it can’t afford to pay a living wage to its workers is admitting that by definition it fails to meet its basic operating expenses. That major multinational corporations can be “successful” while failing to meet a basic operating expense is only possible because We The People pick up their greedy/lazy slack through taxes and charity.
And yet somehow it’s everybody else who’s a moocher and a looter…
And this corrosive greed is a big part of what’s slowly poisoning the U.S. economy. Money being hoarded at the top and put in “safe” investments and bank accounts is money that does nothing for no one. It’s just an elaborate means of keeping score. Money put into the hands of the workers does what money is meant to do: it circulates. It gets spent. The same dollar will go through dozens of sets of hands, touching dozens of lives, feeding dozens of people and sparking profits for dozens of businesses. The same dollar, in the hands of the rich, will generally do… nothing. It won’t create jobs. It won’t fund innovations. It won’t start businesses.
Less than 1% of corporate revenues become wages for workers. Less than 3% of the wealthy are actually entrepreneurs (people who risk their money on business ventures that create jobs).
But 100% of the working class spends their money. That money creates jobs. That money fuels innovations. That money becomes profits. That money keeps the economy ticking.
We have been lied to about who are the parasites and who are the drivers of the economy. We have largely accepted a view of money as a means of keeping score and the economy as something that must have winners and losers, rather than money being a proxy for barter and an economy being a way to divide the labor of society and distribute the load of living
"A business that claims it can’t afford to pay a living wage to its workers is admitting that by definition it fails to meet its basic operating expenses."
"Less than 1% of corporate revenues become wages for the workers."
Even fascist scumbag Henry Ford supported raising wages because he realized that more money in the hands of the working class meant more people buying his cars. The sheer short-sightedness of the super-rich is staggering.
"the best quality of goods possible, for the lowest cost possible, paying the highest wages possible."
henry ford was A LITERAL NAZI SUPPORTER and even HE understood that.
Lay all your laundry on the bed, then I lay in it instead. I like us better when we’re wasted.
