The Truth about Welfare

Demonizing the poor is a popular sport in a lot of countries especially the United States. And while there is always those that are lazy or criminals who abuse social safety net programs most are just unfortunate underprivileged people. Those on welfare are looked down upon but what you know about welfare may not be accurate. I recently read a interesting story that could shed some light on the myths around welfare

slippin into darkness 2016

somehow the title of the WAR classic hit song seems apropos right now. Donald Trump has been elected the next president and i have to say i am stunned. I'm totally flabbergasted!. One of the most divisive candidates in the history of American politics won, in the modern age when most politicians hide their true feelings and put on the best face he did no such thing.

Described as racist, sexist, ignorant, misogynistic and the antichrist by some and people still voted for him. Nothing he said or did seemed to matter. nothing about his character mattered. nothing about his policies having no substance mattered, America just wanted a man in the white house. I wonder if Bernie Sanders would have won, i don't know but this is embarrassing.

The world is laughing at us and afraid. its not partisan speaking, even republicans were against him and yet here we are. the things he said didn't matter is all i can echo. the self same things Obama was derided for being when he ran, trump was exactly that...and yet FOX news embraced him.

he was a celebrity, tv star, no experience, elitist, anti-woman, anti black  and mexican candidate....And he still won

He was openly supported by racist which he was slow to denounce....and he still won

Some times the bad guys when, i guess that makes victory for good all the more special.

the worst thing about it is that the man he disrespected has to turn over the office to him. Of all the things Barrack Obama  should do...he wont, he will be respectful to someone that questioned his intelligence and American citizenship because that is who Barrack Obama is and was as a leader...something Donald Trump could learn from

digital comic museum


do you want to read comics online? do you want to read old comics online? if you answered yes to one of those questions i have a site for you.

http://digitalcomicmuseum.com

Its a site dedicated to golden age comics most that are public domain. what is golden age..that means the bygone age of the late 30's or 40's.  These comics were on the racks when superman and batman first came out and were competitors. i discovered this site and i was surprised i knew nothing of these heroes from the past, most of the companies went out of business and stopped making comics.

Some of the most famous DC comic heroes were from other companies that sold the characters to dc when they went belly up like-plastic man, blue beetle, phantom lady and captain marvel (of course DC had a hand in the big red cheese going away)

Go check it out, in addition to superhero comics they have romance, cowboy, science fiction, horror, funny animals and whatever else was made into a comic
