Primer on the Democratic “Party”

Filed under: — Administrator @ 3:57 pm

From an article titled “A Blood Pressure Lowering Guide to the Democratic Party and Democrats” in MRZine:

“While the web page of the DNC advertises itself as “The Democratic Party,” there is no way to join. You can give money, but you cannot join.”

“The Democratic Party does not exist. At least not as an organized structure with members, solid principles, and discipline for those who violate its rules. Instead, it is a cauldron of constantly shifting groups, factions, and personalities often working at the same ends, sometimes working at contradictory ends…. The primary means to influence in the existing structure is cash money, and the more the merrier. The Democratic Party offers to supporters a degree of influence commensurate with the size of your financial contributions.”

The Money System

Filed under: — Al @ 6:23 pm

I got a Bachelor’s degree in Economics, and I think this cartoon gave me plenty more to think about. How many of us really understand how our monetary system works? Maybe 1% or fewer? Check out the cartoon here. The title is “In Debt We Have Trusted,” For over 300 years

Here are some images I like…
