Remember that time the U.S. shot down an Iranian civilian airliner over Iranian airspace, killing all 290 on board, including 66 children, and then refused to apologize for doing it?
"I will never apologize for the United States. I don’t care what the facts are. I’m not an apologize-for-America kind of guy." — Vice President (and then-presidential candidate) George H.W. Bush, commenting on the downed airliner, 8/2/1988

That quote makes me sick.

This happened in 1988 while Ronald Reagan was president. Just another in a long list of awful things that Reagan was responsible for.

You want to arm me? Good. Then arm me with a school psychologist at my school who has time to do more than test and sit in meetings about testing.

Arm me with enough counselors so we can build skills to prevent violence, have meaningful discussions with students about their future and not merely frantically adjust student schedules like a Jenga game.

Arm me with social workers who can thoughtfully attend to a student’s and her family’s needs so I. Can. Teach.

Arm me with enough school nurses so that they are accessible to every child and can work as a team with me rather than operate their offices as de facto urgent care centers.

Arm me with more days on the calendar for teaching and learning and fewer days for standardized testing.

Arm me with class sizes that allow my colleagues and I to know both our students and their families well.

Arm my colleagues and I with the time it takes to improve together and the time it takes to give great feedback to students about their work and progress.

Until you arm me to the hilt with what it will take to meet the needs of an increasingly vulnerable student population, I respectfully request you keep your opinions on schools and our safety to yourself, NRA. Knock it off.

Imagine high school without valedictorians, cramming for tests or hours of homework each night.

That’s what school is like in Finland, which has one of the highest ranked education systems in the world. It’s one of the top five ranked by Pearson, an education and publishing company. Although its rank in the OECD’s PISA went down in 2013, it has consistently ranked among the top in the survey since 2000.

Meanwhile, the U.S. system, with all its Harvard hopefuls and AP class students, tested average.

America could learn a lot from Finland’s school system  (via fortheloveofgop)

“kill myself” was the most common answer when they contemplated the possibility of life as a girl

Yeah, tell me again how misogyny “isn’t real” and men and boys actually “love”, “like” and “respect the female sex”? This is how deep misogynistic propaganda runs in this world. Men and boys are so viscerally contemptuous of anything or anyone who/that is female or feminine, or perceived to be female or feminine, that they would rather commit suicide than to be associated with— or become a member of— the female sex. As Germaine Greer said, “women have no idea how much men hate them.”

they would rather die then be treated how they treat us

I know how much they’ve been taught to hate and fear femininity and femaleness. I learned it too.

Should you ever doubt that men are WEAK, remember that they wouldn’t last an hour in your shoes.

Has it occurred to any of these clowns that, whatever the provocation, what Israel is doing is raining death and fire down on a population that is penned up in the first place, and which literally has nowhere else to go. Not only does this one simple fact obviate all of the well-what-would-America-do-if? scenarios that get floated around, but it also renders the Israeli offensive into an extraordinarily bloody facsimile of one of those tailor-made, designer dove hunts on which Dick Cheney gets to shoot people in the face.

As with a lot of topics, writing about Israeli war crimes endangers your career. The publishers and editors don’t want to hear; powerful politicians don’t want to read it. Those who wrote against the Iraq war tended to get demoted or lose their jobs. It’s not so bad for Israel and Palestine, of course: if you’re the sort of person who might write such articles, you’ll never make it to a position to write those articles.

What Americans don’t seem to comprehend is that if the government can arbitrarily take away your property, without your having much say about it, you have no true rights. You’re nothing more than a serf or a slave.

In this way, the police state with all of its trappings—from surveillance cameras, militarized police, SWAT team raids, truancy and zero tolerance policies, asset forfeiture laws, privatized prisons and red light cameras to Sting Ray guns, fusion centers, drones, black boxes, hollow-point bullets, detention centers, speed traps and abundance of laws criminalizing otherwise legitimate conduct—is little more than a front for a high-dollar covert operation aimed at laundering as much money as possible through government agencies and into the bank accounts of corporations.

The rationalizations for the American police state are many. There’s the so-called threat of terrorism, the ongoing Drug War, the influx of illegal immigrants, the threat of civil unrest in the face of economic collapse, etc. However, these rationalizations are merely excuses for the growth of a government behemoth, one which works hand in hand with corporations to profit from a society kept under lockdown and in fear at all times.

i’ve seen more posts of people being excited for Home than this movie, which made me upset because this movie comes out before Home does (not that i am saying that you shouldn’t praise Home as well). and as for Big Hero 6 (a movie that also comes out after the Book of Life) and the people saying that there is a lack of representation of Asians in media, i feel you. why? because there is a bigger lack of hispanics, and i agree Disney messed up, you be upset. but be happy for Hispanics as well because we finally got an animated movie representing us and our culture. so please go see this movie when it comes out.

that is all i ask.

When I saw the trailer for this when I went to see the Lego movie it was so stunning I knew it was a movie I had to see

Also it looks like it;s by the same person who did El tirge 

which was a great and fun show 

ALSO!!! So far the trailers have be CHOCK FULL of allusions and references to different parts of Mexican culture and history!!

That beautiful lady up there is La Muerte and she’s straight up based off Catrinas which are popular figures and dolls used to represent Dia De Los Muertos.

NOT ONLY THAT but the weird texture on her skin is sugar! Why sugar? Sugar skulls! They’re a common treat found being sold by vendors and made by other families on Dia De Los Muertos.

BUT WOAH DON’T STOP THERE Along with having those two things play into her design she also has cempasúchil (marigold to put it simply) flowers in her hat. Why’s that important?  Those are called flor de los muertos, flower of the dead. They’re used to honor the dead and decorate the altars made by loved ones of the deceased.

And this is just ONE design. All of that thought, care, and attention to detail went into ONE design and that’s only scratching the surface. This isn’t even touching on the adelita twins NOR the town itself.

Like really, this is turning out to be a film crafted out of pure love and respect for the culture and the medium itself and, like OP, all I ask is that you PLEASE go check out this film when it’s released.

Because while you may verbally support it, the studio and the industry itself NEEDS to see money tied in with your voice and the voices of everyone else who has been supporting this film.

And hey! Danny Trejo and Ron Perlman are in it!

So yeah, GO WATCH THE BOOK OF LIFE.

You forgot the artist behind El Tigre which was one of the best shows ever!!!!!!! I love his art design so much <3 Also he’s hilarious. I’M VERY EXCITED FOR THIS MOVIE!!!
