Both this and last week had very well written articles on the current hikes in Washington: the GOP Tax Scam, the move to kill free speech on the Internet, our for-profit wars, and more — many of them replete with very telling graphics and memes. I regularly point at this great weekly blog, and – since I have been focusing more on general economic reform ideas lately than on the current D.C. scandals – I want to point my dear readers at that excellent blog so you can fill up on recent stuff I may have somewhat skipped over. Or I could simply say, the last two posts on The Revolution Continues were so neat, I’d be remiss not to share the links. 😉
So, for today, I will here merely post some recent quotes from The Revolution Continues to wet your appetite (and link to them, of course):
I. This week’s posts can be found here and sport nifty statements like those below:
|All the above begs the question: where did it go wrong? How did the United States progress from the enlightened desire to prevent further wars of aggression through international law to the current policy of looting whatever it wants from whomever it can bully and beat into the ground?
We can’t stop them and their attempts to f*** the nation if we don’t save Title II net neutrality.
This week, make calls like your minutes don’t matter. You might not be able to afford them later. This week send even more emails to Chairman Pai and overload their comments section. Call the FCC, call and email Congress, and tell them we’re not going to let them get away with this. We rise and become vocal and save our futures, or we sit and die, silent
A new Americans for Tax Fairness report shows how the pharmaceutical industry will get an $80 billion tax break under the Trump tax scam while continuing to price gouge the American people.
Together, we’re demanding a tax system and a healthcare system that works for everyone, not just the wealthy few.
Cindy, let me be real with you. I make $8.90 working at McDonald’s, hardly enough to support my 2 kids and make rent. Meanwhile, corporate executives are living in unimaginable luxury on the backs of their workers and taxpayers. Huge corporations like McDonald’s don’t need more tax breaks – they’re already reaping in massive profits while leaving us to rely on dwindling programs like Medicaid and food stamps instead of paying us fair wages. This is class war, there’s no denying it.
II. And here is the link to the week before, into which I won’t dig too deep:
A brilliant article additionally adorned with a very good political cartoon on how the old American worker strategy of working yourself upward to a better life and nice retirement gets stopped in the tracks by our now utterly corrupted system:
|Quote: “If you’re thinking I’m being facetious, you haven’t kept up with the news. Our supposed “representatives” have sold out ordinary Americans’ hopes and dreams. … And the saddest part is the stress of living debt-filled lives has turned many ordinary Americans’ hearts against their neighbors instead of against the actual perpetrators of this horrendous farce – the owners of the debt factories, the 1% along with their lobbyist lackeys and paid-off politician puppets.”|
So, visit The Revolution Continues and enjoy the good reads and links to activist sites. 😉
