  1. Loved the conversation ladies! Yes Julian Assange (wikileaks) vs. Mark Zuckerberg (facebook) for Time’s person of the year. Says a lot about us. Have a look at what the creator of the web, Sir Tim Berners-Lee thinks about the web and democracy. “Here is this system a lot of our society depends on — democracy depends on it, commerce depends on it.

    On the subject of news outlets . . . this makes me think back to something that Madge said a long time ago (sorry, unfair I know Madge). I recall she once said something like, Democracy Now!

  3. And I would like to add to my previous rant: this said
    majority group is who politicians try to appeal to, because in a
    majority voting system, these are the people who (ideally) reelect
    them. And this majority group has apparently been identified as the
    middle class, even though, the lower class shouldn’t probably be
    underestimated as a target group, if they can/could be motivated to

  4. Voting does little to nothing. Withholding taxes would work
    but then the thugs would put you in prison or kill you, because the
    thief with the state uniform is worse than the thief on the
