With devastating clarity, Perfect Pussy’s singer damns the cavernous double standard applied to Andrew WK’s authenticity and Lana Del Rey’s.
I finally sat down to finish reading this, and every sentence was worth the time.
When you were describing this to me I didn’t understand how Andrew WK could really be linked to Lana Del Rey in a way that made very much sense but this is really smart and something that I have never thought about ever.
The drug test was on Monday and now I am counting down the minutes until I receive the call with my start date. I’ve been in the automotive field for six years and I am grateful to have been able to pay my way through college and make a decent wage. But, I have grown to be apathetic about my work. I want to take pride in what I do every day. Soon, I will hopefully be able to. It’ll be my first job in the engineering field doing something that I’ve worked so long towards and can enjoy.
This country is such a fucking joke. Did you know that if we were to divide the income in this country fairly it would be about 300,000 per person. That’s annually. You could give each person in this country 100,000 and still have enough to invest in infrastructure and research. Instead we have people who don’t have water, don’t have their basic human rights fulfilled, because they don’t have enough to pay a bill.
Capitalism is inhumane.
I agree that our system is fundamentally broken but where did the figure of $300,000 come from?
Total earned US income/(population(percentage at working age))
That is just for those 15-64, if it was divided among the whole population it comes down to about $41400. The numbers are rounded and these are rough estimates as they do not account for anyone who is undocumented or hidden assets.
