And how hard is it to land even a minimum-wage job? This year, the Ivy League college admissions acceptance rate was 8.9%. Last year, when Walmart opened its first store in Washington, D.C., there were more than 23,000 applications for 600 jobs, which resulted in an acceptance rate of 2.6%, making the big box store about twice as selective as Harvard and five times as choosy as Cornell. Telling unemployed people to get off their couches (or out of the cars they live in or the shelters where they sleep) and get a job makes as much sense as telling them to go study at Harvard.

Step 289: When saying something difficult to someone you love, use ‘and’ instead of ‘but’

adulting:

This is a very simple but and very important concept. (See what I did there?) These two phrases would be heard very differently:

"I love you but I need you to respect my boundaries.”

"I love you and I need you to respect my boundaries.”

The word ‘but’ negates whatever came before it, while the word ‘and’ signifies that whatever comes next is a logical extension of the thought.

cool and relevant ppt presentation but jsyk, the term “ethnic cleansing” is a gross euphemism for “genocide”.

THIS. Thank you. This isn’t a “conflict,” this isn’t a complex issue. I was discussing it with a friend earlier - if you want to put this into perspective, view it as the modern day creation of the United States. What could only complicate this, is that it’s condoned legally and promoted through state-sponsored programs. 

THANK YOU!!! Thank you so much for explaining it like this. I have googled until my fingers were blue and everything is so biased on the internet. Now….Why is America supporting Israel again?

In response to the last comment: not only does the US government support Israel, we fund so much of their military operations. Israel is the number two recipient of foreign aid (before the war on Afghanistan it was number 1.)

Our tax dollars are literally being used to murder Palestinians.

Do not support the countries, organizations and politicians that support Israel.
