Lilo and Stitch presenting an accurate representation of Hawaiians perspective on luaus held by tourists.
#what’s sad about this is that this is actually what Hawaiians had to do when the western culture took over #a luau was a sacred practice #until the westerners took the concept and had the audacity to change it into a time to stuff your face with food and put on grass skirts and coconut bras and dance the hula #and when they had these events, they didn’t even let actual Hawaiian people in #so to make money to take care of themselves, the Hawaiians were hired to work in these disgraceful events to clean up after the tourists like slaves only to make less than a buck #so good job disney for doing your fucking research and educating these people #sadly, this still goes on even until today and it makes me sick
I mean. Let’s stop giving Disney such vast amounts of credit for periodic accuracy. They need to see it as a constant requirement… But yeah.
do you ever just see someone that you’re close to and think about how out of the 7 billion people on the earth and the infinite possibilities life could have presented you with, somehow you were fortunate enough to have someone like that in your life
You cannot buy electronics with food stamps. You cannot buy cigarettes with food stamps. You cannot buy pet food with food stamps. You cannot withdraw money with an EBT card (food stamps).
Do you know what else you can’t buy with food stamps? Shampoo, soap, laundry detergent, toilet paper, paper towels, tissues, tinfoil, plastic sandwich bags, toothpaste, cleaning products, tampons, pads, over the counter medications (such as Tylenol, Ibuprofen, etc.), and anything else you can think of that you cannot physically ingest for nutritional purposes.
Do you know what you can buy with food stamps? Food.
Do you know what it’s like to scrounge for change to buy non-edible necessities, use a credit card and EBT card (food stamps) during the same transaction, and then have the person in line behind you judge you for buying the ingredients to make a birthday cake?
People who disseminate false information about food stamps have never had to use food stamps.
Re blogging for commentary mostly. How are people so ignorant? The ONLY thing you can buy w food stamps is fucking FOOD.
This isn’t ignorance. It is a paid-for media assault by the rich against the poor.
And you can’t buy prepared foods like rotisserie chickens or bakery items, you can only buy the ingredients to make foods.
and really, why are the complaining about dog food? they have to feed their pets too? and if they cannot afford to feed themselves, its hard to feed a pet as well… its sad food stamps don’t cover more
Fox News can eat dicks. So many dicks. Bags of dicks.
Can’t even buy toilet paper.
How do people on welfare even wipe their asses?
Fucking Fox Noise. Fuck them.
I can answer that question:
A spray bottle of water and a cloth that you wash in the sink afterward.
The second-worst thing is when you have a water utility bill separate from your rent and you can’t pay it and your water gets shut off and you can’t flush your toilet.
The worst thing would be losing electricity. Cold showers (freezing cold in winter); losing all the food in your refrigerator and freezer and not being able to get any more refrigerated/frozen foods or beverages; no microwave, oven, toaster, et cetera; no heat or cooling for the elderly or otherwise dangerously temperature-sensitive…
That’s one place I haven’t been. Almost went there this month but my mother’s doctor wrote a note to the electric company stating that for the sake of her health they can’t shut off our electricity.
As for food stamps, I don’t know if it differs at all between states but in Oregon at least the limitations on what food you can buy are these (there might be more that I’m unaware of):
- No alcohol, obviously.
- No “hot” food, e.g. whole cooked chickens or stuff from a grocery store’s deli.
- No fast food or restaurant food, obviously.
- Nothing that has a “Supplement Facts” label instead of a “Nutrition Facts” label.
