And it’s shit like this that I don’t really think people understand. While you’re supporting the gutting of food stamps, medicaid, and other social programs, you’re legitimately committing people to die.
One of the men I’ve known my entire life passed away this year because he had to choose between care for his heart issues and putting food on the table for his kids.
This isn’t a joke.
UNIVERSAL HEALTHCARE, PLEASE?
It is simply disgusting that the US STILL doesn’t have universal health care. Wake up… :|
Worst Person Ever of the Day: 6-year-old Enzo, who was diagnosed with life-threatening Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia at the tender age of three, wanted nothing more than to spend an hour or two of the few he might have left cooking with his idol, Ina Garten the Barefoot Contessa. (Bed-ridden Enzo often watches the celebrity chef’s Food Network show with his mom by his side.)
But when the Make-A-Wish Foundation approached Garten to help make Enzo’s dream come true, she turned them down — twice. According to TMZ, a book tour got in the way last year; this year, she simply responded with “a definite no,” blaming “scheduling conflicts.”
Enzo was reportedly heartbroken by Garten’s inexplicable rejection, asking his parents “why doesn’t she want to meet me?” But M-A-W took the incident mostly in stride, issuing a statement saying that “[f]rom time to time, planning for wishes doesn’t turn out as originally envisioned, despite people’s best intentions and efforts throughout the wish-granting process.”
Meanwhile, Enzo has moved on to a new dream: Swimming with dolphins.
what a fucking bitch. i guess yuppies don’t have time to meet young ones who look up to them. especially if they are dying of leukemia. people make me sick.
oh my god this makes me sad since I love Ina :(
this saddens me so much. this girl’s body was perfect before, yet she clearly didn’t believe this. I hate how society makes girls think they need to be stick thin and have no curves to be beautiful.
