Harley is a gift from God.
This is why Harley is like my all time favorite!
Why did they leave out the best part of this scene?;
The character development of Harley is probably one of the better things DC has done with their characters.
no war but the skeleton class war
the skeletariat will overthrow the bonegeoise

Rare Female Portraits of Rural America from 1909-1912
Hundreds of female portraits made by an itinerant photographer named Hugh Mangum, who rode the trains to the small towns of North Carolina, Virginia and West Virginia.
This is how we give Praise to a Witch who is really Nailing an Outfitte.
I have a mighty need to expand the knowledge that this gif is from the ballet Giselle, and these are spirits of women who died from broken hearts called wilis - in the ballet, men who get lost in the forest at night are trapped by the wilis and danced to death for doing wrong to women. It’s all quite badass. (with Myrtha, Queen of the Willis in the middle - she’s one cold hearted bitch and I love her.)
I want more of Sam Wilson’s anger. I want the Sam Wilson who tells Rumlow to shut the hell up, because he is so done with this bullshit, goddamn. I want Sam with a tic in his jaw because he’s been listening to Sitwell give them the runaround, and they do not have time for this.
I want Sam losing his temper in the first days of the Find Bucky Road Trip, because he just got his wings back and now they’re lost again, and the wound is just as raw as when the AF locked them up the first time. And now he’s out looking for the guy who took them, who grounded him. And he wants to believe Steve, wants to have been wrong about the chances of saving that man, wants to find Bucky instead of the Winter Soldier, for Steve’s sake.
But he also kind of wants to punch that asshole in the face, because it’s his fault Sam’s got weights on his feet again and a crick in his back from sleeping on crap motel mattresses and in the backs of cars.
I want angry Sam Wilson, because the man is a gift, but he ain’t a saint.
Sam Wilson I’m not saying race is an element here but race is kind of an element here Fury’s anger is routinely played for laughs while Sam’s is sublimated into good advice for the white boys and those are both fine I don’t mind Fury complaining about these motherfucking superheroes on his motherfucking helicarrier and I don’t mind Sam being a well-adjusted ball of sunshine with gap-toothed smiles and breakfast foods but if you’re not writing fluff maybe don’t defang these guys out of a fear of the Angry Black Man short-tempered Steve gets a lot of love because hey righteous anger! adorable package! Sam works at the VA THE FUCKING VA do you know the amount of red tape and bullshit he must encounter there? come talk to me about Sam trying to get resources and resolutely ignoring the fact that he doesn’t have the necessary political pull come talk to me about righteous anger in an adorable package taking on opponents way above his weight class come talk to me about Sam goddamn Wilson
Sorry for the click-bate-y title, but this is kind of really important. While tuition is going up, the people actually doing the teaching are being severally underpaid. What follows are some particularly upsetting excepts:
Over three quarters of college professors are adjunct. Legally, adjunct positions are part-time, at-will employment. Universities pay adjunct professors by the course, anywhere between $1,000 to $5,000. So if a professor teaches three courses in both the fall and spring semesters at a rate of $3000 per course, they’ll make $18,000 dollars. The average full-time barista makes the same yearly wage. However, a full-time adjunct works more than 40 hours a week. They’re not paid for most of those hours.
“It’s completely insane,” he said. “And this isn’t happening just to me. More and more people are doing it.”
“We have food stamps,” said the anonymous adjunct from Indiana. “We wouldn’t be able to survive without them.”
“Many professors are on food stamps and they go to food donation centers. They donate plasma. And that’s a pretty regular occurrence,” Merklein told Salon.
“As soon as they hear about you organizing, they go on the defensive,” Merklein said. “For instance, at my community college, I am being intimidated constantly and threatened in various ways, hypothetically usually. They don’t like to say something that’s an outright direct threat. … They get really freaked out when they see pamphlets around the adjunct faculty office and everyone’s wearing buttons regardless of what professional organization or union it is. They will then go on the offensive. They will usually contact their attorney who is there to protect the school as a business and to act in an anti-labor capacity.”
The most telling phrase in Merklein’s words are “the school as a business.” Colleges across the country have transitioned from bastions of intellectual enlightenment to resort hotels prizing amenities above academics. Case in point: The ludicrously extravagant gyms in America’s larger universities are home to rock climbing walls, corkscrew tracks, rooftop gardens, and a lazy river. Schools have billions to invest in housing and other on-campus projects. Schools have millions (or in some cases “mere” hundreds of thousands) to pay administrators. Yet schools can’t find the money to hire more full-time professors. If one follows the money, it’s clear that colleges view education as tertiary. The rigor of a university’s courses doesn’t attract the awe of doe-eyed high school seniors. Lavish dorms and other luxuries do.
Anyone going to college now, consider organizing for your faculty. They are at risk of being fired for it, you are not. The university might be more willing to listen to students demanding the education they are paying for. Make noise for the people making your degree possible.
If you are touring colleges, ask what percentage of the faculty are adjucts. Ask what they are paid.
If you are not in a position to do these things, there are two petitions in the linked article to sign.
and honestly if you can read about shit like this and still be against unions I don’t know what to tell you.
Can’t wait to get my degree so I can start teaching!

Last Night in Ferguson (9.29-9.30): Protesters gathered yet again, in a truly uplifting night of action and calls for justice. It wasn’t all sunshine and roses, due to the usual antagonism from the police, but it was solidarity at it’s finest. #staywoke #farfromover
