i love laughing about the friend zone because it’s so dumb like you know most of those dudes aren’t even IN the “friend zone” they’re in the “ugh god not this dude again” zone
Oh, shit, you’re right… OH WAIT. What’s this…
Working poor? But I thought hard work always rendered wealth????? OMG LOOK AT THIS SHIT THOUGH.
More poor people in America have a job than not??? WHAAAAATT? But, graph, anon told me hard work yields wealth!
Well would you take a fucking look at this. Do you know what this means? Not only are all these hard workers poor (but hard work makes people rich????), but capitalism is also hella racist. Socialism and communism both give everyone the same opportunities, but why would we want that?! That would take white privilege out of the world of work. Equal opportunity for all colors? Fuck that, right? I prefer capitalism, where the class system and minimal regulation of business allows blatant discrimination in the work place.
I mean, surely the rich get rich by working hard and being honest. This is America, right?
Whoa! Excuse me, graph? Anon told me hard work yielded wealth??? This can’t be right! The actual workers of corporations bust their asses to make the profit for the corporations??? If this were the case, that would mean that CEOs *gasp* STEAL profit from workers???? WHAAAATTT?????
Hard work does not render wealth in a capitalist setting, or the term “working poor” wouldn’t exist. Look around you! :)
And This Is Why You Shouldn’t Get Sick In America
Many believe that the US healthcare system is the best in the world. Not so according to the World Health Organization’s ranking of the world’s health systems. The US doesn’t even rank in the top 25. It ranks 37th and is the most expensive in the world. I would argue that even if we had the best healthcare system in the world, what good is it, if no one can afford to access it.
Most companies are buying 60/40-policys for their employees these days, but even if you are lucky enough to have good insurance with 80/20-policy coverage, that 20 percent your responsible for can drive you right into bankruptcy as easily as the 60-40 policy given the cost of healthcare.
Insurance cost have been going up dramatically in the last two decades, long before the new Affordable Healthcare Act has taken affect, in some cases as much as 35% per year.
But have you noticed the latest trick the insurance companies have roll out?
Yes, Higher Deductible… most averaging $5,000 per year, per person, but I have seen some as high as $10,000 per year. For those of you that are wondering, this tactic is specifically designed too stop you from using your insurance. It reduces the insurance companies out of pocket liability by shift costs onto consumers, especially those dealing with chronic illness such as diabetes and arthritis. Consequently, because consumers can’t afford the deductible they will avoid necessary care to save money.
Although insurance companies are a problem, the real crook is the healthcare system it self. A corrupt and bloated system desperately in need of reform!
OKAY SO I KNEW THAT TECHNICALLY IN AMERICA THAT YOU PAY FOR HEALTHCARE BUT LIKE THE IDEA IS SO BIZARRE TO ME THAT I’D NEVER CONSIDERED THAT YOU’D GET… A BILL?????? FOR BEING…. ILL?????????? I LITERALLY DON’T
how can anaesthetic cost that much??
how is this legal??
WHAT? And I thought having to pay £7 ($11.55) for stronger prescription allergy meds instead of £4 ($6.60) for the less effective store-brand ones was ridiculous.
You have to pay for the ambulance!?
OK, I’m shocked by the prices, but all of the people from other countries who are just shocked that there ARE prices just make me so so sad.
This is so screwed up.
This is why I would never live in America…..someone is getting seriously rich off this shit..Thank fuck for the NHS!
What the fuck, America? Damn, guys, your government is evil, seriously
Does anyone else wonder how Breaking Bad was such a huge hit yet only 3 people thought to realized that none of it should’ve happened because healthcare should be a fucking right?
This is fucking awful! I knew healthcare in America was expensive but this??? I had an appendectomy 3 years ago and didn’t pay a single cent, I couldn’t even fathom paying more than $36,000…
Welcome to America, where you’re punished for being ill.
My boyfriend and I are doing the cliche long distance t shirt swap. I can’t wait to get his and know what he smells like. :D
Why is body hair only unhygienic when its on a woman’s body?
I THINK YOU DID WTF.
But I took back my power on Skype. ;)
forms of transphobia you should watch out for in your speech and thought processes
- casual cissexism: associating genitalia/body parts with gender, statements like “god i’m such a lesbian i love vaginas” and “guys don’t understand periods at all” or anything that implies people…
