    Upon that essay going viral, she's earned (through crowd sourcing) $50,000 to write a book.

    It’s generous impulse, and, at the same time, a sign of how far she still is from thinking like a person with privilege. After all, artists and writers crowd-fund creative projects all the time, and have no compunction about investing the money they raise in their own work. “It shouldn’t be on the whim of the Internet that people can get themselves out of poverty,” says Tirado. “It is so completely arbitrary.” Perhaps. But if she’s really going to have a middle-class life, she’s going to have to learn a bit of entitlement.
    (http://www.thenation.com/blog/177350...escape-poverty)

    Her blog addresses the whole thing, and makes some nice arguments against much of the "impovershed bitches be complaining and should STFU" as well as "why you poor if you can speak so good?": http://killer-martinis.squarespace.com/my-wordpress/

    Your implication that I am too stupid to know that is laughable, because your average ten-year-old in the ghetto knows that the game is rigged. Fuck you for demanding that I pretend it isn't to make you a little more comfortable. It isn't going to happen. I don't mind, particularly, that we have settled on this system. It'll change again soon. Rich people know that; it's why they're retreating into guarded conclaves and hiring extra security for their malls. But you don't get to pretend that this system we have decided on, the one in which we are pretending that we have never heard of the Gilded Age so that we don't have to acknowledge that we are doing it again, is anything like fair or meritocratic. That is patent bullshit. Stop it. I do not mind talented people having money. I mind stupid people with money saying that they must be smart because: meritocracy. That is terrible logic.
    Oh, and one more thing: It is entirely possible, especially since about a decade ago, for someone who was raised in a higher class to be poor. I am one of those people. The fact that I didn't grow up wondering if I would eat does not negate that I have spent much of my adult life with that concern. So, in conclusion, a giant and full-throated Fuck You to the people who are attempting to avoid the conversation by parsing whether or not my vocabulary means that I am insufficiently poor to be allowed to speak. Because I know goddamned well you wouldn't have even read my first post if I were speaking in my vernacular.

    What the fuck? http://thinkprogress.org/economy/201...mps-shellfish/

    The law would restrict access to a whole range of commonplace ingredients. Some of the things that would be harder to buy for poor families who cook include “herbs, spices, or seasonings,” all nuts, red and yellow potatoes, smoothies, spaghetti sauce, “soups, salsas, ketchup,” sauerkraut, pickles, dried beans sold in bulk, and white or albacore tuna. (Cans of “light tuna” are allowed under the rules.)

    To demonstrate the perils of food policing at Thursday’s hearing, a Democrat on the committee held up a plate of four different kinds of cheese. Although they are nutritionally indistinguishable, three of the four cheeses would be prohibited. “When you look at something like this cheese plate, there’s no evidence of sharp cheddar fraud. People are not buying sharp cheddar in order to defraud FoodShare, and there’s no nutritional difference. So if those are the stated goals, the bill is not accomplishing either,” Rep. Mark Spreitzer said.
    NO NUTS FOR THE POOR.

    There is a lot that has struck me as stupid and rage inducing from the right lately, but that's a new stratosphere of idiocy right there. It almost seems like a direct attack on vegetarianism for poor people. God. Fuck this country so hard.

    I'm unemployed now, and found out today that I'll qualify for full CalFresh benefits, $194 a month, starting June 1, which is fucking rad and a huge relief. That'll go a long way while I'm searching for a new job, and thankfully there are farmers markets in my area that accept EBT payments. I applied on Monday, my phone interview was today, and then I have to mail in some paperwork and will be all set.

    Pro-tip for Californians, in case any of you are ever in this situation: if you see online that your application has been approved, you can go right to one of the local Human Services Agency and they can give you your EBT card/pin there in person. I found that out today because I called in to ask why my pin number came in the mail Monday but I still haven't gotten my card (they're sent separately).
