The six Wal-Mart heirs possess more wealth than the bottom 40% of families in this country. Or, in other words, six surrealistically-rich people who say they can’t provide decent wages or benefits for their workers have more wealth than roughly 160 million other Americans combined. Much of that Wal-Mart wealth is directly attributable to the ways U.S. taxpayers subsidize the Wal-Mart labor pool, offer tax breaks, and tilt the playing field so that so much wealth flows into those few hands. Six people. Think about that, if your own head isn’t too far up your nether orifice, then think of the people and policies that created such disparity.
We’re not going to be disrespected, We have to get something out of this. And I don’t know what that even is.
— Rep. Marlin Stutzman (R-IN), quoted by the Washington Examiner, on the government shutdown. (via wilwheaton)

Hi hi hi!
It’s nice to see you back on Tumblr…missed you while you were scarce :)
I’m okay…surviving at least. Somehow I ended up president of my son’s school’s PTA & that job hits every single one of my anxiety triggers - that’s been a challenge. Think I’m going to have to get my anxiety meds upped just to deal with it :/ Hope you are doing well!
