Hahaha TRUTH! #funny #true #weak #funnybuttrue #iphone6 #section8 #welfare #foodstamps

…You do realize that a lot of people on assistance don’t actually pay for their own phones or phone plans, right?Like, I’m not even talking about the Lifeline program, here. I mean they’re on someone else’s family plan, or they were given a gift, or they have a phone issued to them through work (as I did, back when I made slightly less than $11/hr as a foster care caseworker).You don’t know someone’s story just by looking at their possessions.

My family donated an old, used iPhone they no longer needed to me and I’m able to use free wi-fi on it in different locations and suburbs as long as I keep it charged. I don’t have to pay for a subscription or call plan as I can always purchase cheap, pre-paid credit whenever I need to or in case of emergencies. My iPhone has helped me stay in touch with my family members, partner, doctors and be able to get around and tell the weather (which is very important here because of all the extreme heatwaves and flash floods). 
It would also help me call the police or emergency services in case I get raped or have a medical emergency (I’m chronically ill). 
People on welfare could benefit greatly from having iPhones and, in fact, need iPhones as well as the options and features they offer (which aren’t available on normal brick cell phones) much more than your average, able-bodied, well adjusted person who is able to have or keep a job. 
Welfare recipients deserve nice things. Welfare recipients aren’t subhuman. Welfare recipients benefit from having access to 21st century technology and don’t simply purchase iPhones to be frivolous or showy, but rather because of the conveniences and important and beneficial features they have. 
If you think welfare recipients don’t deserve to eat or live because they have an iPhone or a car or any other material thing that makes our lives more tolerable, convenient and liveable then you’re the worse piece of shit and your opinion is as useful as toilet paper. Take your shitty opinion, turn it up sideways and, well… you know the rest. 

I mean, granted, I’m an Android person, but back when I was on assistance I had a smartphone. I used it to remind myself of client appointments. When I couldn’t leech wifi, I tethered it so I could get my case notes submitted to my supervisor.My phone helped me keep my job, AND it helped me apply for something full time. It directly helped me in getting off assistance. IDGAF what people think - poor people deserve smartphones, and poor people use smartphones to enhance their quality of life. Fuck people who think that’s a bad thing.

Have you tried looking for a job in the last five years withOUT a smartphone?  I have.  It’s *ridiculously* hard.  Today it’s assumed professional people can check email, look up information on the go and never, EVER get lost on the road.  Keeping advanced technology from people because they’re poor means they STAY poor.
You’re not petty, you’re cruel.

Plus, you know how you have both a smartphone that you carry with you everywhere you go, and a computer that mostly stays at home?  Well, rather than buying both a $500 phone and a $1000 computer, what do you think the smart money choice is if you need to give up one of those? You can’t give up both because you need to check email in today’s world. Even minimum wage jobs send emails about schedule changes and such to their employees these days. 

right now, a smartphone is probably THE most necessary piece of equipment a human being needs to live in the civilized world. what the hell are people thinking, that someone working minimum wage or looking for a job should somehow be able to function with just a landline and no email?
sometimes i think people like the OP enjoy the idea of poor people suffering, being helpless and miserable, sick and hopeless, because it makes them feel less worthless.
well, folks, guess what. if you’re an evil, self-centered jerkass, you could be sitting on top of a mountain of corpses and you’d still feel like a worm, so don’t take your issues out on other people.

If you hate other people for getting an iPhone before you to the point where you’re willing to fuck with their foodstamps I will personally purchase you an iphone and make you eat it.

I think people have overlooked that phones in this day and age are a lifeline. I mean it’s hard to consider that 20 years ago cell phones were not permanent fixtures, but for many people their most prized and valued possession is a phone. So even if someone IS homeless, or in the midst of poverty, I think they SHOULD have a phone…and who the fuck am I to judge what that phone is.

Carriage horses do not belong on busy streets. It is dangerous for both humans and people.

LOL. Now Taxi drivers…those are a clear threat.

Give it up, why don’t you focus on animals that actually need your help.

Jaaaaaammmmmm. Onomnom.

Study: Pasturing Stallions Together is Possible

fivegaited:

HERE is a video of the first two days of interaction between these stallions that I really recommend watching.

Kind of along the lines of what we were just talking about (and what I’m always talking about on this blog), here’s an article about how the Swiss National Stud experimented with pasturing breeding stallions TOGETHER - with excellent results.  To quote the article:

Handlers were ready with equipment to intervene in the event of conflict, but that was never necessary. The stallions established their own hierarchy in their little “bachelor herd” and lived together in apparent contentment for six months.

“None of the stallions ever had to be removed from the herd because of injuries resulting from interactions between them,” Briefer Freymond said.

Aggressive behaviors (defined as any behavior—regardless of whether contact was made—intended to push the other horse away, such as chasing, pushing, or kicking) were infrequent and typically occurred within the first three to four days, Briefer Freymond said. After that, she said, these behaviors might still occur occasionally, but their frequency and severity were similar to what researchers had seen among wild bachelor herds of Przewalski’s horses. Ritualistic behaviors also reduced considerably after the first three to four days, she noted.

“We encourage horse breeders with extensive pastureland to keep stallions in stable groups and in adequate densities, particularly for those that are not used for breeding the whole year around,” Briefer Freymond said. “This could potentially improve horse welfare and reduce labor associated with horse management.”

Everyone has seemed so blown away in the past when I’ve posted pictures of Icelandic stallions living together, or made posts about stallion-keeping practices in Iceland.  Hopefully this video will help people see that it’s not only Icelandic stallions that benefit from being kept in groups - it’s a truth that applies to all types of horses.  It’s sad that this kind of care isn’t the norm here in the US, as stallions, just like other horses, are social animals.  Anyone interested in horse behavior should watch the video, particularly people who argue that their horse can’t be kept with other horses because he’s never been kept with other horses and never learned social skills.  While that’s certainly a setback, it’s not an excuse not to work on socializing the horse, and we can see how quickly the above stallions were able to adjust to living together - an adjustment which was hugely beneficial to these horses.  To quote this earlier article on the same study:

Living in groups in the pasture led the horses to attribute their time differently to their various activities than when they had been in stalls, Briefer said. This particularly affected how often they ate, stood attentively, and rested.

"The advantages of living in a herd are clear," Briefer said. "Horses are naturally social, and maintaining them in groups is what best meets their needs for physical and mental well-being—stallions included."

Stallions live in bachelor herds in the wild too, but I think for the most part modern breeding culture dictates the worth vs the risk, so not many people are willing to even attempt it. I mean they need interaction and physical closeness as much as any other horse. It can be daunting though, Heart in your throat sort of moment, and anyone who’s witnessed a stallion fight (intentional or not) knows how messy they can be.

It is pretty cool to see that more and more people are accepting. And honestly when you remove the need to compete (mares) most stallions are fine with one another. The property at Avalon has the stallions on one side and mares on the other. The only time stallions get hanky is when the ladies get stirred up!
