Call me a nattering nabob of negativisim but no way in hell
Uncanny use of Middle Eastern headgear on the Money Power’s heads in this historical political cartoon. Some things never change, they just become even more entrenched.
would I sign the campaign for FCC ruling to clear the way to end robocalls.
Nattering nabob of negativism indeed. An FCC ruling that clears the way for blocking robocalls is not a win for the public but a loss of right to receive any and every call being put through on the lines. The government’s legal inability to interfere with the public’s calls is being rescinded by the public if we let this go through. There is already a public do not call registry. The only robocalls stopped by this change of law will be political campaign calls. Getting information out to the public is a right of assembly. The mind game seems to be in play on this move.

The Bloomburg Businessweek article, “The Chinese Can’t Kick their Savings Habit,” that I happened to read today strikes me as the hubris of Capitalism in full glory. This article derides the insecurity of the Chinese people who distrust government policies. Seems to me the Chinese people have the right of it. Consumption can be a disease, a Capitalist disease. http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2015-05-01/chinese-consumers-cling-to-saving-suppressing-spending
I love the reminder this is that the people rule. Money is the people’s magic wand, our scepter. How we spend money, wave it around, shapes the world the way we want it to be!
