Having tattoos is the new “black”.

If it’s illegal to discriminate based on skin colour, why is everyone allowed to judge and even deny jobs to those who choose to have tattoos and piercings? I don’t see employers rejecting a girl because she looks like a carrot, has fake tits and ratty extensions, but yet I see people unemployed because they choose to have important things in their lives permanently recorded on their bodies and metal on their face as well as in their ear.  How is this fair?

Why are certain types of self-modification seen as “normal” and others seen as freakish and unacceptable? 

It’s not fair and is completely discriminatory.  Something needs to be done.

Someone please come collect this moron.

That is probably one of the more outlandish statements that has been on tumblr today. Body modification is in NO way similar or equal to the treatment that people with Black skin have had to face. Until millions of people have been exterminated due to their stretched lobes or tribal tattoos then you will stand the fck down and never make that comparison again.

Lemme fix that for you. “Until millions of WHITE people have been exterminated due to their stretched lobes or tribal tattoos then you will stand the fck down and never make that comparison again.”

Again, the White body mod folks stay showin’ they ain’t shit.

Washington Post
President Obama plans to announce details Friday for a $1 billion Veterans Job Corps that the White House says will put up to 20,000 veterans to work over the next five years on projects to preserve and restore national parks and other federal, state and local lands.

Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric K. Shinseki on Thursday described the program as “a bold new effort” to lower the high unemployment rate for post-Sept. 11 military veterans, which stood at 13.1 percent in December. The government estimates that 250,000 post-Sept. 11 veterans are unemployed.

“In some countries, children work 14 hours a day, 7 days a week,” the opening title cards in “The Harvest/La Cosecha” read. “Children 12 and younger pick crops. The United States of America is one of those countries.”

Economists Say Obama Plan Would Prevent Recession

stfuconservatives:

liberalsarecool:

A Bloomberg survey of economists concludes President Obama’s $447 billion jobs plan “would help avoid a return to recession by maintaining growth and pushing down the unemployment rate next year.”

The last thing Republicans want is for Obama to be able to take credit for improving the lives of American voters so close to an election. They would rather see more people losing their jobs and their homes and their dignity than to see Obama win in 2012.

What is good for the country is secondary to destroying Obama’s chances to win in 2012, party over country, always - GOP/Teabagger Mentality

The GOP doesn’t care what scientists have to say; why should they bother caring what economists think?
