In America, Rape is Considered Non-Judicial Punishment

The other week, a sandwich salesman plead guilty to paying under-aged prostitutes for sex.  The internet exploded with memes similar to the cartoon featured to the right, celebrating the sandwich salesman’s probable prison rape.  Liberals, Anti Police violence protestors, progressives and feminists circulated these memes celebrating the prison rape culture right along with conservatives and fundamentalists.   Prison rape is a matter of STATE POLICY.  All the rapists are known to the prison system for what they are. They are not punished for their deeds in spite of the fact that these deeds are conducted while under the control and...

Social Security is Turning 80, Do You Know Which Cycle You’re In?

I spend a lot of my time following economic, political and social topics in both the mainstream press and alternative media.  And for the past three years I have been paying a lot of attention to what I perceive to be the cyclical nature of the situations (economic, political and societal) that we as a country find ourselves in.
