The Chicago Teachers Union has filed its notice of intent to strike - the first in 25 years. 
“CPS seems determined to have a toxic relationship with its employees,” union president Karen Lewis said. “They denied us our 4 percent raises when there was money in the budget to honor our agreement; they attempted to ram a poorly thought out longer school day down our throats; and, on top of that they want us to teach a new curriculum and be ready to be evaluated based on how well our students do on a standardized test. It has been insult after insult after insult. Enough is enough.”
More than 26,000 teachers, clinicians & paraprofessionals may go on strike in the coming days. Along with contract issues, curriculum changes & longer school days without necessary resources, the CTU is fighting for art, music, physical education & world language classes for public school children.

"College graduates should not have to live out their 20s in their childhood bedrooms, staring up at fading Obama posters and wondering when they can move out and get going with life. Everyone who feels stuck in the Obama economy is right to focus on the here and now. And I hope you understand this too, if you’re feeling left out or passed by: You have not failed, your leaders have failed you. - Paul Ryan"

Paul Ryan (via achans)

Yes. And the leader who failed me was George W. Bush. Lest we forget the president who was at the helm when the economy was driven into the fucking ground. Am I the only one with a memory that goes back further than the last campaign speech I listened to?

Although while we’re talking about people in their 20s, what exactly do Romney and Ryan propose to do about all the 20-somethings out there who have been royally fucked by the recession? Repeal Obamacare, so we no longer have health insurance? Absolutely fucking nothing about the astronomical cost of a college education or the staggering debt people of my generation have taken on to pay for it except cut Pell Grants so it’s even harder for people to pay for school? Cut taxes on the wealthy so they can give themselves pay raises and bonuses, lay off workers, cut pay and benefits, or go offshore when they need to force the appearance of a profit, hide their money in overseas tax shelters, and otherwise horde their wealth because in 30 years, I’ve seen no evidence that tax breaks for the wealthy trickle down…except maybe to their kids? I’m all ears, GOP. What, exactly, are you going to do for us, other than point the finger at the dude who didn’t cause this fucking problem?

What pisses me off all the hedge fund douches making money off of student loan debt. Those prick for profit schools. Those asshole advance pay day loan sharks. Mortgaged Backed Securities. All designed to profit from high interest rates aimed at the poor and middle class. It’s total fuckery.

Hell naw! When I went into undergrad, the economy was fine. When I graduated 4 years later in 2009, everything had went to shit! And I remember who the fucking President was when shit starting going bad, and it was GEORGE W. BUSH. It went from good to bad… surplus to deficit. He robbed us.
