We did the math for you. You’re welcome. 
More here. 

and then you have the leftists doing the “see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil” in the background

do you really value your $2 above people making a wage that they can support themselves on. really.

Sorry, the heritage foundation is an arm of the anti-women, anti-gay, anti-trans, Koch Brothers who funded the citizens united ruling and are responsible for some of the shittiest things to ever walk the earth.
I trust their math about as far as I can throw the half a billion dollar building that they are housed in.

Here’s a more reliable source on the estimate cost increase as related related to wage increase, at least for McDonalds.
for those uninterested in clicking through, paying McDonald’s workers $15/hour would result in approximately a $0.22 raise in the price of a Big Mac, for about $31,000 a year at full time. That’s roughly double what minimum wage workers in America receive right now.


People who try to justify treating those barely scraping by as it is like shit and keep them in poverty are assholes. There are no excuses.

reverseracism:

Like I’ve stated countless times before: police brutality and violence is nothing new to the unarmed black american.
It’s been happening ever since the original American police force; the “slave patrol” was established to capture runaway slaves and keep the free black people from revolting. I don’t give a fuck about the “good cops” because they aren’t doing a damn thing to stop this terror, they’re benefiting from it.

More people are becoming aware of it now because of the use of social media. Without social media very few of us would be educated about what’s happening to black America.

We should NEVER get used to racist violent acts against black people. NEVER. I never want to wake up and see another one of my people was wrongfully attacked and go “well, I’m not surprised. This always happens”.
I REFUSE, Black lives have value. We are human; we deserve respect and the privilege to have opportunities as much as the next white person.

It’s even heartbreaking that I have to type this out. For all the black people out there who believe white people have the right to their “opinions” look at what their opinions are doing to all of us, yes.. I said ALL of us, you included. For all the black men who don’t see value in black women you are just perpetuating the exact same racist animosity they have towards you.

BLACK LIVES MATTER.

Oh god thank fucking christ.

I usually don’t reblog these, but I feel like some of my followers could probably use the reassurance. I definitely have these kinds of thoughts sometimes.

so i’m not crazy for randomly thinking such thoughts? what a relief!

Edgar Allan Poe had a name for it too: The Imp of the Perverse. he compared the impulses to a demon that urges people to do the wrong thing simply because it can be done

The compulsion to jump from high places is called “l’appel du vide" in French. The call of the void. I think it’s specific to that one instance, but I think it’s a cool phrase for this phenomenon in general.
I think about this with random sharp objects laying around, too. “What if I just jammed this into my eye or throat right now? … oh god WHAT.” Just… fucking christ, brain. Don’t.

Reblogging this again because most people don’t/never know how normal these thoughts are, and that can be a major source of stress. It’s okay. You’re okay. Just, you know, don’t follow through on that shit.

this is what i just picked up from the grocery store. it cost $32. Thirty. two. dollars. for 1 pineapple, 2 bags of grapes, a small container of raspberries, 1 soft drink and 2/$1 nuts…. 
do you know how much junk food i could have for $32? do you have any clue how much McDonald’s you can get for $32?
stop shaming fat people poorer than you or people poorer than you in general for not eating healthier. stop lying about how cheap it is or how it’s comparable to fast food. just stop.

growing up, my sisters and i would do the grocery shopping for the house. we could not ever. fucking. believe. how much grapes cost.

it’s absolutely ridiculous.

GRAPES AND STRAWBERRIES ARE HIGH AS SHIT FOR NO REASON!!!!!! And it aggravates me cuz that’s literally the only fruit I will touch.
