hey hey!

My husband’s new job is delayed (boss lady has been stranded somewhere in Central America?), as is the promised salary advance, and we are absolutely drowning after slow sales and too much time spent waiting.

If you know poverty, then you know how it goes: there was not enough money to cover the rent check- so it bounced, causing the phone/internet/utilities to pile up, triggering an avalanche of overdraft fees.
Our account is currently negative more than $400- even after two weeks of deposits.

Now this financial disaster is impacting everything: I’m out of several prescriptions, food is running incredibly low and I’m constantly going hungry, we need a new car battery asap, I can’t afford textbooks or mandatory online access codes. I couldn’t even scrounge up $10 cash to visit the school clinic today to address my current sinus/lung/kidney/bladder infection situation.

My father has refused to cosign a small student loan, and then changed his mind after agreeing to purchase my books. My sisters refused to pick up my meds or loan me cash to see the doctor. D’s doing odd jobs and running the shop and doing everything he can.

I know. I know this kind of thing seems to happen to us repeatedly, but that is exactly how the cycle of poverty works.

That’s the number of arrest warrants issued in Ferguson last year for nonviolent crimes. Compare that to the population of 21,135 people.

Pain is dangerous.

hermitbrainlessblogger:

People should understand that pain is dangerous. Sometimes it isn’t I don’t want to move today. It is I don’t want to live today.

Physical pain, by itself, is a suicide risk. Living with it constantly, with no end date will be the hardest damn battle of your life. It is a battle hidden behind…

It’s cool ALS is talked about and all, but y’all realize the reason the search for a cure has to rely on cute water dumping videos is that unlike finding new ways to give middle class men firmer boners, there just isn’t much profit to be made curing a really rare disease? that the problem is once again an industry centered around generating profit and not addressing social need? you know, the problem once again is capitalism?

Dozens of police departments suspended for losing US military-grade weaponry
Close to 200 state and local police departments in the United States have been suspended for losing military-level equipment transferred to them by the Pentagon, a new investigation found.
According to the media outlet Fusion, its independent investigation into the Pentagon’s “1033 program,” which equips state and local police departments across the US with excess military equipment, turned up an alarming trend: Not only did many law enforcement agencies fail to comply with the program’s guidelines, they routinely lost dangerous weaponry.
Already, the investigation has found that police departments in Arizona, California, Mississippi, Missouri, Georgia, and others have lost or cannot account for various types of weapons. This list includes M14 and M16 assault rifles, .45-caliber pistols, shotguns, and even vehicles.

Thanks to US Uncut for this! BREAKING: Detroit’s unelected emergency manager, Kevyn Orr, has just relinquished control of the Detroit Water and Sewage Department, which is now back in the hands of the people. It’s expected the mayor and city council will approve a water affordability plan that caps a household’s water bill at no more than 3 percent of their income.

The Violent Xenophobic Racism in Ireland

At 9pm last Tuesday, 44-year-old Chinese doctor, Wu Youzhong, went to investigate the sound of breaking glass outside his home in Coleraine, County Londonderry, in Ireland. When he arrived at his front door, he saw that the window had been smashed. An intruder then attacked him so violently that he had to be admitted to hospital for several days, and required consultation from an eye specialist. Dr Wu’s wife, Luo Ruoyin, said, “I heard he was just screaming in pain and I was scared. He was just holding his head and covering his eyes and blood was just running down everywhere.” The police are treating the attack as racially motivated; the couple, who have a two-year-old daughter, are reported to be intending to move away from the area.

The Chinese community in Ireland has long been a target of racial discrimination. Anna Lo, an Alliance Party politician born in Hong Kong who was elected to the Ireland Assembly in 2007, was the first politician from an ethnic minority at national level in Ireland, as well as the first East Asian to be elected anywhere in Britain. Her campaign was dogged by violent racism – including death threats – to the extent that she had to carry a panic alarm as a precaution. One far-Right website published pornographic images of Chinese women, alongside derogatory references to Anna Lo. “People from ethnic minorities are very frightened,” she said. “I have never seen ethnic minorities so fearful in Ireland.”
