Before you start ranting about the minimum wage being to low and want it to be $15.

This should be funny but it’s too true to laugh at. Raising the minimum wage will destroy low wage employment (AKA entry level jobs).

Okay no that is absolutely not true?!
By raising the minimum wage you ensure that people can actually, you know, BUY THINGS and SUPPORT THE ECONOMY?
Okay I am literally too tired of this horseshit. You know how much McDonalds would have to raise their prices in order to actually pay a REASONABLE minimum wage?
A nickle. And not even on ALL of their food items- just SOME of them.
You assholes trying to keep the poor from trying to improve their situation make me fucking sick. Do you even KNOW HOW FUCKING CAPITALISM WORKS?
YOU PAY PEOPLE PROFIT FOR THEIR WORK SO THEY CAN BUY MORE THINGS AND PAY OTHERS PROFIT FOR THEIR GOODS AND SERVICES AND ITS A GODDAMN CYCLE. YOU DONT KEEP PEOPLE BARELY PAID ENOUGH TO BE ABLE TO FEED OR CLOTHE OR HOUSE THEMSELVES BECAUSE THAT KILLS THE GODDAMN ECONOMY.
THE WORKING FORCE IS WHAT POWERS THE ECONOMY
NOT CORPORATE SHITFUCKS TRYING TO BRING US BACK TO 1800’S WORK CONDITIONS
THANK YOU AND GOOD FUCKING NIGHT.

Tumblr user artiestroke lays down the law

Also the touchscreen kiosks that McDonald’s Europe ordered back in 2011 shown in the picture were ordered to speed up taking orders so their paid employees could focus more on filling those orders, not as a method of replacing minimum wage workers
As a matter of fact, they projected back in 2011 that this would result in an INCREASE in jobs
So yeah dommypls and americas-liberty, learn economics.

And some fucking empathy for other people besides yourselves.  Fuck you for thinking that having to pay a little extra for a cheeseburger is more important than someone being able to live off their wages.

This is how toxic capitalism is. People think that cheap hamburgers are more important than human lives and well being. 
We live in a culture that commodifies FOOD, WATER, HOUSING, and HEALTH CARE, and that SCOFFS at the idea that everyone should be able to actually afford all of those things even if they are employed. 
We have a system where people think it is ABSURD to suggest that EVERYONE should be able to EAT. 

I also happen to know that service workers like these kinds of machines; they don’t have to interact in the same way with customers, don’t have to hear customers yell about how that’s not what they ordered (dude, it’s on a slip, it’s what you ordered and it was definitely not a misunderstanding with the employee since you didn’t talk to them).  And there’s definitely just as many (or more) employees at Wawa putting your food together at the lunch rush as there would be without the wonderful touch screen devices.  So quit trying to appeal to luddites and accept that you’re being a horrible person by claiming that people you rely on a for a service don’t deserve a reasonable living wage.

A male author can write about unlikable male characters. They’re called anti-heroes and it’s called a novel.
— Gillian Flynn on people calling her writing misogynistic in Glamour magazine, the October 2014 issue. The level of sass and taking no shit from both her and Rosamund Pike-who Flynn interviews in this article-is strong and gives me life. (via samishoward)

According to recent reports, your white friend on Facebook, whom you’ve always secretly suspected of being a latent racist, explained today through a series of passive-aggressive posts why she does not support the protesters of Ferguson, Missouri.

Saying that “it isn’t that big of a deal” and “people get shot all the time”, your white friend explained to what she imagined was an eager audience on Facebook why the residents of Ferguson are blowing this whole thing out of proportion.

"They’re just looking for an excuse to riot. They just always need something to be angry about, and feel oppressed over." While it was left ambiguous who the ‘they’ in the Facebook status referred to, some expert analyzers concluded that your white friend was referring to black people. Your white friend insisted she was not racist at all, and that in fact this entire ordeal had nothing at all to do with race, and that "they" should stop trying to make everything about race.

She then posted a number of articles and videos of police officers doing nice things, with the passive-aggressive addendum: “See? Not all cops are bad! So maybe all of you should stop shit-talking them!” Unable to explain how these random good deeds did anything to address the events in Ferguson, your white friend responded to criticisms saying, “Well my uncle is a police officer, and he’s an amazing person. He risks his life every day. And if you don’t like that, then fuck you Jennifer, I’m unfriending you.”

Your white friend’s final Facebook status on the matter concluded, “I might get hate for this, but I for one support all the brave men and women who risk their lives every day for us. And I support all of the brave officers in Ferguson who are only trying to their jobs. The problem here is all those ghetto thugs acting like animals. And see? I didn’t say anything about race! And all of that is why I don’t support these ridiculous protests. If you have a problem with that, then bye.” The status finished with an extraordinarily condescending smiley face.

But this is only going to be a real debate if you guys can cop to your real-life feelings and opinions. You should have a bit more courage and put your actual motives front and center. Instead, because some of you do have a certain degree of political savvy, as is evidenced whenever GamerGaters on 8chan and elsewhere try to rein in their more unhinged peers, you’ve decided to go the “journalism ethics” route.


Unfortunately, that sauce is incredibly weak.

WOW, so this is from a Reddit post by a journalist, responding to criticism of a piece he wrote about #GamerGate in the Boston Globe

This quote is a highlight from an outstanding post, one of the most direct, perfect take-downs of people’s bullshit defenses I’ve seen, so I went to dig up the author’s name to credit him for this quote and guess what! He’s hannanimal's ex roommate Jesse Singal, a really cool and smart dude. I love when someone I already liked makes me like them even more. 

One of his friends popped Michael, our inflatable penguin, but I refuse to hold that against him.

The best comedy punches upwards towards the established structure of power, not downwards at oppressed classes
