Link 22 Apr 10,809 notes 10 Poverty Myths, Busted | Mother Jones»

america-wakiewakie:

1. Single moms are the problem. Only 9 percent of low-income, urban moms have been single throughout their child’s first five years. Thirty-five percent were married to, or in a relationship with, the child’s father for that entire time.

2. Absent dads are the problem. Sixty percent of low-income dads see at least one of their children daily. Another 16 percent see their children weekly.

3. Black dads are the problem. Among men who don’t live with their children, black fathers are more likely than white or Hispanic dads to have a daily presence in their kids’ lives.

4. Poor people are lazy. In 2004, there was at least one adult with a job in 60 percent of families on food stamps that had both kids and a nondisabled, working-age adult.

5. If you’re not officially poor, you’re doing okay. The federal poverty line for a family of two parents and two children in 2012 was $23,283. Basic needs cost at least twice that in 615 of America’s cities and regions.

6. Go to college, get out of poverty. In 2012, about 1.1 million people who made less than $25,000 a year, worked full time, and were heads of household had a bachelor’s degree.

7. We’re winning the war on poverty. The number of households with children living on less than $2 a day per person has grown 160 percent since 1996, to 1.65 million families in 2011.

8. The days of old ladies eating cat food are over. The share of elderly single women living in extreme poverty jumped 31 percent from 2011 to 2012.

9. The homeless are drunk street people. One in 45 kids in the United States experiences homelessness each year. In New York City alone, 22,000 children are homeless.

10. Handouts are bankrupting us. In 2012, total welfare funding was 0.47 percent of the federal budget.

Deciding to write every single possible accomplishment I’ve done in a day in my diary, as soon as I do it, was an excellent idea.

It has helped me a lot, in mood and actually being productive; I wish I’d done it sooner :-P

I can safely say it makes me happier.

I don’t think I’ve gotten back on the wagon regarding flossing and wearing contacts everyday. I have to work on that.

Land of the free home of the rich

What really scares me is that they all have significantly cheaper health care AND education, which means Americans not only make they least, they pay the most.

…wait, what?

I have finally finished all the achievements in Jetpack Joyride.

Screw the voices in my head saying this is a worthless accomplishment and I should be ashamed of wasting my time on that game and shouldn’t even think about being proud about this:

I AM GODDAMNED HAPPY ABOUT THIS!!

Text 16 Apr 2 notes Progress report #18

I studied 9 hours in the week from the 7th of April to the 13th of April.
I’ve decided I’m going to write a lot more stuff in my diary (which I actually use as a log book, not as a diary). If it makes me feel accomplished, it’s going to be written up.
Also, my mood is slowly improving, which is good.
