you should be following louise breakingbaeddel if you aren’t already, because on account of she is basically a genius and surprisingly nice anyway she would be worth it in general but as a gay leninist trans lady from a working-class background with intensive and useful understanding of and commentary on radical theory she is a rare and precious jewel

It’s coming up to Winter, it’s cold, and due to Government admin errors and several other hits, we’re now living below the poverty line and can’t afford to heat our home or eat.
Due to the economic crisis my family and I were forced into being below the poverty line, having to choose between food and heating during Winter, and this year thanks to admin issues at HMRC we are without a vital benefit that usually pays for our food. This year we cannot afford either heating or food.
I’ve been rejected for over 500 apprenticeships and jobs in the past year, yet I still try because we need some way to survive during this time.
The £60 a week that used to go on food has been taken away by the government because they cocked up their admin and we have to wait 3 more months for that money to come back, we’re now also losing £90 a month to the energy company through some kind of backwards ‘cost’ thing they’ve just implemented and cannot switch without incurring a costly fee.
This is all not to mention that we also have to pay a fraction of council tax now, something that never used to happen, so that’s £70 we somehow have to pay every month.
And finally our housing benefit has been cut so terribly over the past year we’re now having to pay £900 out of my mother’s life savings a month just to keep a roof over our head, even though we never used to have to before. Life savings that would go on helping her through her Cancer.
My Mother has also never been on holiday in her life, and has only just escaped an abusive household in recent years, so is in no fit state to be dealing with so much monetary stress.
Please help. There’s only so much I can do, and I’m already at the end of my tether.
"So this happened. John Kerry literally met with Henry Kissinger, an architect of the coup that installed dictator Augusto Pinochet in Chile, on the 40th anniversary of said coup. For advice on what the U.S. should do regarding Syria. Oh yeah, Kissinger is also a war criminal on a massive scale, behind the mass slaughter of Vietnamese civilians and the illegal war in Laos." - Gary Lapon
Just remember that The Amazing Atheist is a guy whose misogyny got him driven out of Reddit. I’ll say that again: this is a man who displayed a level of misogyny that caused Redditors to go “you’ve crossed a line and you should leave.”
PLEASE SIGNAL BOOST THE FUCK OUT OF THIS.
