“Most hospitals in America are non-profits, which means they must have financial assistance or Charity Care policies. This is gonna sound weird, but what that means is that if you make under a certain amount of money, the hospital legally has to forgive your hospital bills. Let me show you how this works. Type in the hospital name with ‘financial assistance’ after. Should be the top link. Let’s check. What you wanna do is look for financial assistance applications and policies. Let’s check the policy. From here, what you’re looking for is a sliding scale of benefits. 0-300% of the poverty guidelines, they will forgive 100% of your medical bills. So you can see here that 300% is $37,470, so if you make under that amount, the hospital will legally forgive your medical bills. If you’re a larger household, you can check it out from here. If you wanna test it out, I run a non-profit that does this so DM me, and I will actually do it for you, and see if we can crush those medical bills.” The guy’s Tiktok handle is @dollarfor.
The majority of my immediate fam works for hospitals and had no idea this was a thing. I find that insane but not at all surprising. Of course, there are probably all sorts of loopholes or requirements depending on the hospital or what sorta medical insurance you have. This might be helpful to check out.
“I’m so anti-fascist I report my friends and neighbors to the feds”
“I would have never snitched on Anne Frank! Anyway, here’s a person I’m related to at the capitol!”
Hey I don’t know if you know this but snitching on someone for storming the capitol with intent to kill someone is not the same as snitching on someone for the crime of… *checks notes* being a jewish child
Some of the dogmatic nonsense on this site just baffles me. This was a violent coup attempt where at least a significant part of the mob were straight up Nazis. Comparing them to the victims of the Shoah is just vile.
Just a reminder that this how Conservatives unironically think
Remember like five weeks ago when I got yelled at on here for saying Biden and Trump had exactly the same covid response plan?
Shut the FUCK UP.
I get that being a cynical pessemistic “both sides are the same” edgelord makes you popular on tumblr but you are deliberately ignoring REALITY and that shit is harmful.
Biden has announced he will sign a national mask mandate on his first day in office. Trump spent 12 months being at absolute best silent on the issue of masking - he was cornered a few times into making off-hand, isolated remarks that people should wear masks, but he was more often than not explicitly anti-mask. He and his entire team refused to wear them. Masking matters and seeing people in positions of power masking matters. Do not fucking say that Biden’s COVID response plan is the same as Trump’s. It’s not.
Biden’s COVID plan involves massively increasing testing in speed, accuracy, and availability. Trump spent months complaining about the US testing too much and actively asked his administration to test less people because the numbers made him look bad. Don’t fucking say that Biden’s COVID response plan is the same as Trump’s. It’s not.
Biden’s COVID team is fully stacked with qualified, serious, brilliant scientists and phsyicians. He will rely on them when making policy decisions. Trump put his failed real estate tycoon son in law Jared Kushner and fired anyone who disagreed with his position of ignoring the pandemic. Don’t fucking say that Biden’s COVID response plan is the same as Trump’s. It’s not.
Biden’s COVID plan to get schools back open (by the end of his first 100 days, where it is able to be done safely) specifically includes providing schools with the funding they need to purchase the PPE that they need to operate safely as well as implementing other community protocols that will reduce overall spread and transmission (increased testing, better contact tracing, etc). Schools will not open at the expense of student safety - they will only re-open if it is possible to do so safely. Trump threatened to cut the funding of any schools that didn’t open fully this fall and explicitly fought back against the CDC guidelines, stating they were too strict and too onerus. Don’t fucking say that Biden’s COVID response plan is the same as Trump’s. It’s not.
Biden’s COVID plan emphasizes free, accessible vaccines for every American and he is focused now on developing the infastructure to roll out this massive public health initiative so that everyone who wants and needs a vaccine can get one. Trump’s administration turned down vaccine manufactuerer Pfizer earler this year when the company promoted the administration to order significantly more vaccines than it had - the administration refused, and now the delivery of a huge number of vaccines to the US is delayed. Don’t fucking say that Biden’s COVID response plan is the same as Trump’s. It’s not.
We are transitioning from a narccisistic, moronic lazy piece of shit president who absolutely refused to help the country through the pandemic at best and who at worst caused hundreds of thousands of more Americans to die than needed to - to a serious adult who understands the severity of the situation and who is developing a robust, science-based, aggressive plan to help the country. To say these two plans are the same is absolue fucking ludicrous.
Is Biden’s plan perfect? Of course not! Is it ~the exact same~ as Trump’s? NO. IT’S NOTHING LIKE TRUMP’S. SHUT THE FUCK UP AND STOP SPREADING MALICIOUS MISINFORMATION.
Oh my God right at “wear a mask” Biden and Trump are literally on opposite ends of the spectrum what the fuck is wrong with you people
I am not a more liberal-Liberal. I am an NDP supporter. Liberals want leftists to compromise and vote for them.
We already are dearies. The NDP is to the right of a lot of us. You are to our far-right, left only to the Cons. That’s compromise enough.
fascists latching on so so so hard to warhammer 40k because they are too stupid to realize that warhammer 40k is about how evil fascism is is easily one of the biggest ironies of idiot nerdboy culture
warhammer 40k: there’s a civilization in our setting that sacrifices millions of people and wages constant war in the name of what is essentially a big corpse, they’re so stupid they think their own crumbling obsolete-ass technology is magic, everyone around them is objectively better than them at everything except having a ton of soldiers, even the people who live amongst literal demons have a higher quality of life than these idiots

So I made a sea shanty playlist that has songs that either: tell of women at sea or have women singing in it. (And some songs have both, both is good)
Am I glad that he’s frozen in there and that we’re out here and that he’s the sherif and that we’re frozen out here and that we’re in there and I just remembered we’re out here what I wanna know is where’s the cave man

My very shitty contribution
to be clear the first one is the original. i just riffed on it because it’s a powerful message.
And yes MLK said all the quotes above. The sanitized version and image most have of him is wholly false.
Stop spreading nazi propaganda
Stonetoss is a nazi and you should crawl back into whatever hole you came from
First of all, these are fucking hilarious and I don’t give a fuck if they were drawn by Satan himself.
Second of all, you better put your money where your fucking mouth is and cancel every comedian or talk show host who is found guilty of being problematic, but you’re probably too cowardly for that. Jimmy Kimmel never stopped being racist or sexist! RuPaul has a goddamn fracking empire!
In 2019, Virginia Governor Ralph Northam admitted to having very racist yearbook photos that included blackface and KKK uniforms. Democrat presidential candidates demanded his resignation.
The lieutenant governor, Justin Fairfax, would have been the second black governor in state history. Too bad he was accused of rape and sexual assault by multiple women, including a Democrat university professor.
If Fairfax also resigned, the office of Governor would fall to the state Attorney General, a white man named Mark Herring. He also admitted to wearing blackface, even more recently than Northam.
However, the next person in the line of succession would be the Speaker of the Virginia House of Representatives, a Republican named Kirk Cox. He mockingly announced that he had absolutely never ever worn blackface.
Suddenly, all the calls to resign went silent. People started suggesting that we should be forgiving and accept Northam’s awkward non-apology. After all, it’s been a long time since he wore blackface, or a KKK hood, or went by the nickname “coonman”. He’s probably reformed now!
That’s why I don’t listen to bullshit like this ask. It’s all fake, all theatre. What you think doesn’t matter. Even the goddamn truth doesn’t matter if you have a (D) or an ® next to your name on the ballot.
We have photographic evidence that the fucking Governor of Virginia was literally a member of the Ku Klux Klan, and may still be one today, but he remained in office. So why the fuck should I care about who drew a comic?
