Bloviating Zeppelin: Truism

Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Truism

From a 1934 Chicago Tribune editorial cartoon. Check out the lower left. Truism?

I love the sign that reads, "Young pinkies from Columbia and Harvard."
Nothing has changed. The targeted thinking has established roots which run deep into our culture.

Never mind Round Up, it's time for some "rainbow herbicide" baby.

Ya dig?

Signs: yes, in some ways little has changed. And yeah, I do "dig."

The lesson of history!

Of course, for decades, our education system has been teaching revisionist history. **sigh**

Looking at old Chicago, one should be aware of its prominence for fascism, which, I maintain, comes only from the left.

"The Hoaxters" is an excellent documentary on this matter and should be seen at all costs.

For WSF I wanted to add this article which casts light on the tribune of old.

Through this we indeed see history repeated with the Pentagon Papers and now Wiki Leaks.

SOS DD I'm afraid.

A fair review and commentary on the film can be found here.

If you have any kind of film library whatsoever I think this will fit your shelf.
