The US Government: We're not going to make it federally mandatory for people to get paid a wage they can actually live off of

The US Government: If people want to make a living, they'll just have to work 16+ hours a day

The US Government: And if their kids end up disenfranchised because of a lack of parental involvement, well that's not our problem

The US Government: In fact, what is our problem is creating a system that will funnel these disenfranchised youth into our prison system so they can work for corporations (that promise us money) for damn near free

The US Government: If they don't want to fall victim to this system, then they can seek higher education

The US Government: Except such an education will be inaccessible to most disenfranchised people and skewed in favor of the financially stable and white people

The US Government: And we're not going to make intervention programs like sex education and conflict resolution federally mandatory, because that's the parent's job

The US Government: The parent who is working 16 hours a day

Twitter Campaign: These are only facts. 

Feel free to join in on this campaign to boycott the Exodus movie trailer. I’m so infuriated that it is 2014 and we are still portraying on the silver screen a falsehood of what the ancient Egyptians were! Use the hashtag #BoycottExodusMovie to join. This is honestly some fuck boy mentality honestly!
