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.
Also I was stoned on my dream and kissing Elijah Wood felt like my lips were vibrating with thousands of tiny pins and needles. Oh my god this dream was great.
Last night I dreamt that I was flying, via flapping my arms btw, and I flew past an open terrace that I recognized to be owned by my ex boyfriend: Elijah Wood. Sudden I realized that I have always been in love with him and I needed to tell him before it was too late. I cooly stopped flapping my arms and floated on my back down to his level and confessed my love. And Elijah was all like, wish I love you too and we started making out. His next words were: so when can I be your boyfriend now? And then I realized I’m already dating someone and I’ve never been so conflicted. I asked if we could just be friends but it was pretty weird after that as it always is.
Fairy rings occupy a prominent place in European folklore as the location of gateways into elfin kingdoms, or places where elves gather and dance. According to the folklore, a fairy ring appears when a fairy, pixie, or elf appears. It will disappear without trace in less than five days, but if an observer waits for the elf to return to the ring, he or she may be able to capture it.
