For the Lord gives wisdom, and from his mouth comes knowledge and understanding. He stores up effective counsel for the upright, & is like a shield for those who live with integrity, to guard the paths of the righteous and to protect the way of his pious ones.

Don’t like inflation being this high? One way to help is to expand the supply of truckers, and one way to do that is to stop removing the ones testing positive for marijuana use, despite using it legally and in their off-time just like beer.

I feel like I’m stuck in this scene where the woman being strangled is a metaphor for poverty, and I’m like “Just do UBI,” while everyone else is like “Somebody help!” “Grab some forms!” “Tell her to get a job!” And people just look on as poverty continues, as if it’s inevitable. pic.twitter.com/2UMDLIeaYr

“SSI also has an income-based phaseout. Effectively, for every $ 1 you earn above a threshold, you lose 50 cents in benefits. But shockingly, that threshold is just $ 85 per month. So it’s like a 50% “tax” rate with a $ 85 per month standard deduction.”
Yep. Phaseouts are taxes. https://t.co/luj4DaHOVU
