The Economic Policy Institute stated, “The United States stands out as the country with the highest poverty rate and one of the lowest levels of social expenditure.” It’s a national disgrace that we allow just a few people to take more of the country’s wealth than the millions of productive people who can’t find living-wage jobs.

Just two men made more investment income in 2013 than the entire year’s welfare budget (Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), commonly referred to as ‘welfare’).

Just 400 individuals made more investment income in 2013 than the entire safety net (SNAP, WIC (Women, Infants, Children), Child Nutrition, Earned Income Tax Credit, Supplemental Security Income, TANF, and Housing).

And the richest 1% made more from their investments in 2013 than the total cost of Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, and the entire safety net.

Go into the arts. I’m not kidding. The arts are not a way to make a living. They are a very human way of making life more bearable. Practicing an art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow , for heaven’s sake. Sing in the shower. Dance to the radio. Tell stories. Write a poem to a friend, even a lousy poem. Do it as well as you possibly can. You will get an enormous reward. You will have created something.

"Let America be America again.
Let it be the dream it used to be.
Let it be the pioneer on the plain
Seeking a home where he himself is free.

(America never was America to me.)

Let America be the dream the dreamers dreamed—
Let it be that great strong land of love
Where never kings connive nor…

I made my planner today! I’ve been tweaking my ideas and figuring out what I want and how I want it over the past few weeks. I am so, so excited about how it turned out. It has a grade book section, a full calendar for the year, lesson planning and unit planning sections, and the back has pages set up for taking notes at meetings (because I usually take notes for meetings in fifteen different notebooks and then I can never find what I need). 

I used (the old 2009 version of) Pages to make everything after being truly inspired by hithertokt. I finally declared it “perfect enough” and took the whole thing to Staples this afternoon to get it printed out and bound. Right now I’m in the process of adding tabs and covering the covers with washi tape, making it look all pretty (because that, kiddos, is what is truly important). 

Wooooooooo

Do you have a template?

I have pages and PDF files. Ask box me your email and I would be glad to send them to you. :)
