Broke: we should have 51 female senators
Woke: we should have 10 senators without a high school diploma
@laser truuuuue!! last year, the EFF, a "socialist" party "of the people" here was ripping on other (very capable and intelligent) parliamentarians for not having a university degree. i was actually with them on this point until someone pointed out that it's a classist attitude and also is anti-representation
@laser We also need to block people who make more than US$ 100,000 / year: 80% of the people makes less than that, and yet most senators and congress folk have that or a higher income.
I know people who claim to be poor when making $150K. Like, in what country do you live? I have neighbours who make less than $30K with 4 jobs, and barely can afford rent.
Let's get some people representing us who actually represent us.
A cool and chill place for cool and chill people.
