I’ve been told since february that I would get an full ride+$18,500/yr non-competitive scholarship. Since the beginning of the program, everyone that has applied for it and met the minimum requirements has gotten it. I am the first person to meet (actually far exceed) the requirements that has been denied. All because the person that gives out the scholarship wanted me to work for the navy and I (politely) turned them down.
I’m going fucking crazy. Drunk as fuck at 7pm on a Wednesday. What am I going to do?
I am “without faith.” Guess it’s impossible for me to lift this cup of Diet Coke and bring it to my mouth for a sip, since nothing is possible. *sip* Nope, doesn’t look like that claim is true.
You are “with faith.” How about you appear in my living room to have a sip…
Eric Cantor explaining why Republicans won’t help natural disaster/Joplin victims without more budget cuts.
Also strangely, he’s describing a situation that argues for Health Care Reform since people don’t have unlimited funds they deserve to die when they run out.
FUCK THIS MOTHERFUCKER.
I want every single voter to read this quote and think about it, just for ten seconds. Hell, just for five seconds. I don’t need to point out that his position is heartless and vicious. However, I really want to draw attention to the particular amount he chose to use - ten thousand dollars. Ten thousand dollars. I’m not just outraged that he’s arguing a family should be happy to wipe out their savings to pay for healthcare. I’m also horrified (though not surprised) that he thinks ten thousand dollars would cover jack shit in the case of serious illness or injury. If you have a condition more serious than a cold, ten thousand dollars barely gets you in the door. Have a condition that requires surgery or a few nights in the hospital or physical therapy? Fuck you. Is more than one member of your family sick or injured? Fuck you. You still have to feed your kids and put a roof over their heads? Fuck you. Did you need that car you were saving for to get to work or school? Fuck you.
What’s that, victims of natural disasters? You lost your house and your means of transportation? You don’t know when you’ll be working again? You’re living off your savings? Your kids still need shelter and food and clothes and doctor’s visits and school supplies? Well, the Republican party has a message just for you. FUCK OFF AND DIE. You should have saved up a decade’s worth of income when you had the chance, whiners.
Yeah I didn’t consider how comically low that amount was. If there’s a serious illness in your family it’s not a matter of “well darn, now we can’t buy that subaru we were saving for” it’s a matter of “how the fuck are we going to pay the mortgage now?”
