69. Every supporter of "market values" had her or his hand on that knife
All of those who refused to give her a job.

All of those who refused to keep the unemployment checks going when it was THEIR fault that she doesn't have a job.

All of those in her family who internalized the "market values" bullshit to the extent that they acted as if she was personally to blame for her situation.

All of those who proclaim that those who suffer in this country have it coming.

They ALL tried to kill her.

I'm so sorry for your friend's pain(and it reminds me of the pain of people I've known and lost)and I'm so FUCKING enraged at all the smug, well-tailored scumbags who feel they have the right to cast people aside in the name of their own short-term gain.

We HAVE to bring them down or they'll put the knife through EVERYONE'S chest.
