10 Poverty Myths, Busted | Mother Jones

america-wakiewakie:

1. Single moms are the problem. Only 9 percent of low-income, urban moms have been single throughout their child’s first five years. Thirty-five percent were married to, or in a relationship with, the child’s father for that entire time.

2. Absent dads are the problem. Sixty percent of low-income dads see at least one of their children daily. Another 16 percent see their children weekly.

3. Black dads are the problem. Among men who don’t live with their children, black fathers are more likely than white or Hispanic dads to have a daily presence in their kids’ lives.

4. Poor people are lazy. In 2004, there was at least one adult with a job in 60 percent of families on food stamps that had both kids and a nondisabled, working-age adult.

5. If you’re not officially poor, you’re doing okay. The federal poverty line for a family of two parents and two children in 2012 was $23,283. Basic needs cost at least twice that in 615 of America’s cities and regions.

6. Go to college, get out of poverty. In 2012, about 1.1 million people who made less than $25,000 a year, worked full time, and were heads of household had a bachelor’s degree.

7. We’re winning the war on poverty. The number of households with children living on less than $2 a day per person has grown 160 percent since 1996, to 1.65 million families in 2011.

8. The days of old ladies eating cat food are over. The share of elderly single women living in extreme poverty jumped 31 percent from 2011 to 2012.

9. The homeless are drunk street people. One in 45 kids in the United States experiences homelessness each year. In New York City alone, 22,000 children are homeless.

10. Handouts are bankrupting us. In 2012, total welfare funding was 0.47 percent of the federal budget.

We’ll always have our S1 Cardinal GIFs…

What’s more, it makes Adrian Hodges & Co. look rather petulant; like a jilted lover. “Well then, Mr. Capaldi, you just take that starring role on the Beeb’s flagship show. We’ll show you. You can’t come crawling back to us now!”

Well I’d think the odds were slim he’d return regardless of Who filming schedule. And I did think Adrian Hodges made a good point when discussing how hard it’d be to have Peter as the villain while he was also being the Doctor and would become so linked to that role. Having said all that it certainly does feel a bit petulant, I agree, as if to say ‘well it was never an important role to begin with’ which I accept may be my own negative spin.

Considering the degree to which the Cardinal was underused in S1, him just disappearing would pretty much fit in with the writers not really knowing what to do with him when he was actually *there*.

Yes, there were indeed some episodes where he was woefully underused and overall I’d agree they didn’t really make the most of the role’s potential but really the heart of the makers was out having sword fights so they’ll probably cope better with a lead villain who can also do lots of sword fighting and rabble rousing. 

We’ll always have our S1 Cardinal GIFs for every social situation…
