A Malaysian Airline aircraft went missing earlier today , the plane supposed to land in Beijing 6:30AM this morning but Malaysia Airline lost contact with the plane carrying 230+ passengers including 2 infants, 15 different nationalities. The plane is currently no where to be found and is missing. A missing plane with 230+ passengers on it. This news makes me feel so devastated and i’m praying for all the families and the passengers from the flight MH370 because just imagine the pain, fear and anxieties of their family they are going through now. Please put all the families and passengers involved in this tragic incident in your prayers. And let’s just all hope they will be found soon and everyone will be safe. #prayforMH370
Inspired by every student whose told they can’t be an artist because it doesn’t “make enough money”.
People from middle and upper middle class can say these things and get away. People who don’t know what starting capital is can say these things. People who literally don’t know what its like to have nothing or to live in poverty can say these things.
You can’t follow your dreams without some start up cash from somewhere. And most people don’t have that. Like if money was no object and people could just ~live their dreams~ then why are there children starving in 1st world nations
It’s the social economic version of “just stop being depressed”
Actually reblogging again to add commentary:
"All you need is a house and food and a laptop".
And internet for the laptop. And electricity. And plumbing. And heat. And possibly has for your car. Oh and tabs and emissions if you have a car. Travel if you live away from family/friends or have a job that requires it but doesn’t pay for it.
And, hm, what else?
Medications. Doctor appointments. Replacement for things like canes and wheelchairs if they break and your insurance doesn’t cover it (oh, and if you’re self employed, you have to pay for insurance, too).
Not only is this super classist, it’s ableist as fuck.
I like how it goes from “you like knitting?” to “own a yarn shop!” like that’s something people can just do.
Between business licenses and registration, initial inventory, deposit and up-front payments for the commercial property lease, promotion and branding, and other startup costs, you’re looking at a minimum six-figure investment - and that’s assuming you already have the necessary contacts and skills to handle a small business startup all on your lonesome and can safely afford to gamble on pissing those six figures down the toilet when faced with the reality that two-thirds of small business startups fail within the first two years.
You know who can do all that?
People who already have money.
name 1 bad thing canada has done
We’re really sorry bout that
Also Japanese internment camps sorry.
also denying Jewish people fleeing the Holocaust safe asylum
Destroying/demolishing Black neighbourhoods, thus destroying their history, and putting baseball fields over dug up Black cemeteries.
Sent body bags to indigenous reservations during a flu outbreak instead of disinfecting alcohol because “they’ll abuse it”
this thread is such a fucking tragedy
the original post is one of the constant many examples of common place historical amnesia among canadians, a result of our whitewashed, censored education
people truly believe the worst to come out of this slavery-condoning, genocide-committing, dictator-propping, massively polluting country is a 17-year old trashy pop star
and no one ever realizes how much this god-awful country supports the settler colonialism of israel and continued economic support of the British Dominion as our crooked politicans gave “anti-apartheid” mouthservice to Nelson Mandela in 1993
no, what they teach you in high school history classes is how much of a global leader canada was in the mid-20th century because Lester Pearson sent a bunch of combatants to be military “peacekeepers” starting with the British & French-backed Israeli invasion of Suez in Egypt.
and this is SO INGRAINED in our national consciousness and identity-oriented policies that our very own UN head of the Canadian branch says lies likewhich is taught in our high school curriculum and gives rise to teenage idiots like above truly believing in our white liberal myths of inherent good will, whose worst crime is to give the world justin fucking bieberand i GUARANTEE you that 99% of this contry’s populace knows what “peacekeeping” is but ask them about the Somali Affair and they’ll draw complete fucking blanks
I NEED FEMINISM BECAUSE WHEN A FEMALE MEMBER OF THE IRISH PARLIAMENT COMPLAINED SHE WAS A BIT COLD A MALE MEMBER LAUGHED AND SAID HE’D “WARM HER UP” AND PULLED HER ONTO HIS LAP
WHILE UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF ALCOHOL
IN THE PARLIAMENT CHAMBERS
WHILE THE OTHER MALE MEMBERS JUST STOOD AROUND WATCHING AND LAUGHING
IN THE MIDDLE OF A DEBATE ON THE REPRODUCTIVE RIGHTS OF WOMEN*
IF YOU DON’T THINK IRELAND HAS A MAJOR SEXISM PROBLEM YOU’RE SERIOUSLY WRONG
All it does is show me you have a superiority complex and deep rooted classist tendencies. I’ve been a waitress, a barista and a sales associate, so your talking down to others just tells me at one point you would’ve talked down to me. This guy in the queue tried to buy me a coffee today, after ripping into the guy behind the counter about his skills and his job. Don’t care what people do for a living, if you don’t treat ‘em like (very important) people when you deal with them, we can’t be friends.
"A person who is nice to you but cruel to the waiter isn’t a nice person."
I don’t understand how people don’t get this
It is terrifying. It means if you don’t adhere to their demands or if you make on little mistake, they can turn on you. I don’t deal with people who are nasty to others.
a relationship will not cure your issues, no matter how hard young adult books and films try to push that notion on us. if you have depression or bipolar or anxiety or whatever, getting into a relationship isn’t going to cure that or make it go away. person with illness + relationship = ill person in a relationship. please don’t put all of your focus on finding someone to fix you, focus on fixing yourself the right way.
