Could you live on $8 or $9 dollars an hour? A computer game made by the Urban Ministries of Durham in North Carolina and an advertising firm called McKinney lets you play out life with a low-wage job as a single mom. The objective is to make it a month, juggling getting a job, rent, a place to live, food and coping with the costs of repairs, things for your child, insurance, etc.. Actually a very hard game to play and full of reminders of the difficulties of life on that kind of salary.
Play the game.

Seriously, if you haven’t played before, play it now. If you have played before, play it again. Especially important during this election season.

just playing this game alone made me really stressed and anxious

THANK YOU
THANK YOU
ALL THE HATER ANONS, PLAY THIS

This game is amazing. Play it, play it, play it! I shared this with a professor who then had her students play it. So real.

Conservatives should take note. This is how it is to try and live off of $9 an hour with food stamps. I made it through with $42 left over. I am however one of the millions that struggle with this type of shit so I already knew most of the decisions I had to make, having already made them myself personally. 

I ain’t past day 17 on my first try. My goodness.

Weekly Republican Address: Calling on the President to Address ObamaCare’s Impact on Seniors | Speaker.gov

THE SPEAKER SPEAKETH TOO MUCH NONSENSE.

Here’s an idea: Every #UnitedBlue & “No-Mo GOP” & Anti-Tea Party Lifers all go to the Speaker’s website, and answer comments, preferably with questions, to try and make far-righties at least think.

In this link to the Speaker’s site, I have taken the liberty of commenting. Let’s see what sort of feedback I get. Just check the ‘Comments’ under the Speakeasy’s post. :)

Tea Party Rep. Paul Broun Hypocritically Used Taxpayer Funds For Debate Coach

"ENTITLEMENTOLOGY" = Right-Wing, Tea Partyin’, Ted Nugent-lovin’, John Boehneresque belief that Tax Payer Money is Money to which they and their Corporate Fellows are entitled. And they can use said monies in any way they wish. There’s no debate about it.

WWYD? (WHAT WOULD YOU DO?)

BONELESSNESS

Past Imperfect: History Un-Forgotten!

Dr. Dash’s ability to find stuff made obscure, and Smithsonian’s recognition of this wonderful talent, is worthy of more than just a peek. A meager dash of Dash will not do…you’ll want more.

Writer and activist on sexuality in the Arab region Shereen El Feki is on the show today talking about female genital mutilation, the importance of a bride’s virginity in Islamic marriages, and her new book Sex and the Citadel. Here she is giving a TED talk about pop culture in the Arab world. Meaning Barbies and the Arab MTV.
