About the blog:
The multifarious issues of classism and living in poverty in one little blog from a poor person who like vast majority of fellow low-income people IS NOT LAZY.

About me:
I refuse to lie down and tolerate classism in silence. I will not keep quiet. I will call out classism and any other form of -isms I discern. I tolerate no oppression, including and ESPECIALLY legally sanctioned discrimination. .

On the first one: Yessss, Early Modern English! So much love! For those who have not studied Old English, Middle English, or in the above case Early Modern English and have difficulty deducing what it says, it says: “Arguments cannot be answered with insults. Kindness is strength; anger blows out the lamp of the mind.”

Addendum to the second: And women’s hearts [=

Exactly what the bottom person said. Couldn’t say it any better  
  
 PS It is not the signmakers fault if they were at an underfunded school… or  if they suffer from dyslexia… or if they’re just starting to understand English… or a host of other causes of misspelling. Everyone working deserves living wage. Period.

….can somebody please explain what justifies banks hitting their users with minimum balance charges? Because to me, it looks as though they penalize people for being poor

I’d abstain from a bank account completely but considering paychecks need to be cashed and many places don’t accept cash, modern American society basically forces people to have them…

So I just saw a Forensic Files episode involving two men who did an armed robbery and shot the man they were robbing. He recovered, but that’s quite a lot of lost time at work, which harmed him and his family financially. The jail sentence of the robbers? 6 years.

Jeremy Hammond hacks a powerful and corrupt company hoping to expose their sketchy sounds. Jail sentence? 10 years

Let’s go over this again. Do an armed robbery and shoot the person you’re robbing, you get 6 years. Hack a big business to expose shady dealings, where nobody gets physically harmed,get a decade.

What. The. Actual. Fuck.
