Hahaha TRUTH! #funny #true #weak #funnybuttrue #iphone6 #section8 #welfare #foodstamps

…You do realize that a lot of people on assistance don’t actually pay for their own phones or phone plans, right?Like, I’m not even talking about the Lifeline program, here. I mean they’re on someone else’s family plan, or they were given a gift, or they have a phone issued to them through work (as I did, back when I made slightly less than $11/hr as a foster care caseworker).You don’t know someone’s story just by looking at their possessions.

My family donated an old, used iPhone they no longer needed to me and I’m able to use free wi-fi on it in different locations and suburbs as long as I keep it charged. I don’t have to pay for a subscription or call plan as I can always purchase cheap, pre-paid credit whenever I need to or in case of emergencies. My iPhone has helped me stay in touch with my family members, partner, doctors and be able to get around and tell the weather (which is very important here because of all the extreme heatwaves and flash floods). 
It would also help me call the police or emergency services in case I get raped or have a medical emergency (I’m chronically ill). 
People on welfare could benefit greatly from having iPhones and, in fact, need iPhones as well as the options and features they offer (which aren’t available on normal brick cell phones) much more than your average, able-bodied, well adjusted person who is able to have or keep a job. 
Welfare recipients deserve nice things. Welfare recipients aren’t subhuman. Welfare recipients benefit from having access to 21st century technology and don’t simply purchase iPhones to be frivolous or showy, but rather because of the conveniences and important and beneficial features they have. 
If you think welfare recipients don’t deserve to eat or live because they have an iPhone or a car or any other material thing that makes our lives more tolerable, convenient and liveable then you’re the worse piece of shit and your opinion is as useful as toilet paper. Take your shitty opinion, turn it up sideways and, well… you know the rest. 

I mean, granted, I’m an Android person, but back when I was on assistance I had a smartphone. I used it to remind myself of client appointments. When I couldn’t leech wifi, I tethered it so I could get my case notes submitted to my supervisor.My phone helped me keep my job, AND it helped me apply for something full time. It directly helped me in getting off assistance. IDGAF what people think - poor people deserve smartphones, and poor people use smartphones to enhance their quality of life. Fuck people who think that’s a bad thing.

Also - you only pay for a smartphone ONCE. Someone could save up for an iphone and use it for years.If you officially own the device - it’s not tied to a contract if you buy it out of contract, I can basically take my Moto X and tell Tmobile to kick rocks* - you can take that phone to a pay per use provider and they will make it work.
*Well I could if it wasn’t optimized for Tmobile’s network, because different providers in the states use different telephone tech.

When white people get too friendly.

While African-American suspects had been arrested in 54 percent of murders, 55 percent of thefts and 49 percent of assaults, television stations including WCBS, WNBC, WABC and WNYW have featured coverage of crimes that are predominantly committed by black people. The stations covered murders of which 68 percent of the suspects were African-American, 80 percent of the suspects of thefts were African-American, and 72 percent of the suspects of assaults were African-American.

Publicity done right in an anti-rape campaign: double-page spread, pages glued to one another. After the reader forcefully separates them, the image above is revealed with the caption “if you have to use force, it’s rape”.

The boy who played Danny in “The Shining” had no idea he was filming for a horror movie. From Cracked: 

Lloyd just thought they were making a movie about a family in a hotel. He wasn’t even really sure how much he was getting paid to be there. He was only ever shown severely edited footage that took out all the scary parts, which essentially means he thought he was filming the most boring snoozefest ever created, because without the iconic scenes of terror, The Shining is a movie about three people wandering around in cavernous, brooding silence.
Lloyd didn’t see the actual uncut movie until many years later as a teenager, and suddenly everything clicked into place — those two nice British girls with whom he used to play and share lunch in between takes? They were ax-murdered ghosts who wanted his soul. That nice Jack Nicholson man who did a funny tomahawk dance when Lloyd accidentally wandered on set one day? Jack was slobberingly hacking his way through a bathroom door to murder Lloyd’s onscreen mother only moments prior.


That must have been the biggest mindfuck of his life.

Clever way to put a kid in a scary movie and still keep his innocence if you ask me. Now he’s got bragging rights for being in a classic.
