    Equally hard to believe that this was actually produced by an American college! Sadly this cartoon illustrates what has occurred in this country over the last 50 years.

    @suek:

    How the heck did you come up with _that_ one!!!

    Sue, the Interwebz are full of all sorts of fun and interesting stuff.

    I’ve got years of archives representing countless hours of aimless surfing and, at time, intensive research.

    This is just one of the jewels in the treasure chest. 🙂

    @PB:

    Does anyone know where we can get a copy of this?

    How about a free download from here?

    Maybe those folks ran him out of town, but Mr. Utopia managed to sell his bottles of Ism to plenty others. Now what?

    Aye, thanks for sharing!

    Hence the reason why the “O” disassembled the auto industry. He saw the video also. The first time I saw it on YouTube, I downloaded it, knowing that it might not be up long. Ponder the closing statement:

    “When anybody preaches disunity, tries to pit one of us against the other thorugh class warfare, race hatred, or religious intolerance; You know that person seeks to rob us of our freedom, and destroy our very lives; And we know what to do about it !

    I have to ask: Do we really know what to do about it today? Wasn’t that precisely how, not only The One’s election, but how the entire congress went Democrat: The statements: “Two Americas”; ” If you don’t vote for the “O” you are a racist”; “We are now an Islamic country.” Etc..

    Ok, AC…you have oodles and oodles of files. Now…even with a computer, how do you keep them filed so you can find them when you want them??

    >>Wasn’t that precisely how, not only The One’s election, but how the entire congress went Democrat>>

    That’s the whole point of “Diversity”…it’s called “divide and conquer”

    We need to become just _American_ once more. Equal justice under the law – with one law for every one.

    E PLURIBUS UNUM!!

    Sue,

    I use Firefox which has an extremely useful and flexible bookmarks feature built in.

    In addition to the built in features, I use an extension feature called FoxMarks which allows me to upload my bookmarks to an online server and then I can synchronize multiple computers.

    All of the bookmarks can be assigned keyword tags that are searchable.

    For photographs I use Photobucket and a Firefox extension which allows me to upload photos with just two clicks. I can then organize the photos with keywords, titles, etc.

    For screenshots I use FireShot, another Firefox extension. I can capture entire pages or portions of pages and then edit them. I then upload for free to easycaptures.com where they can be titled and keyworded.

    Finally, I use an organizational tool on my home computer called Zotero. With that program I can do all sorts of archiving into various folders, etc. It’s one of my favorite tools.

    Good cartoon.

    Of course – Capitialism is an ‘ism’ – but it’s the best ‘ism’ around. And this ‘American system’ has Britain largely to thank for this ‘imported’ system;)

    I hate to burst your bubble, (Ok I don’t really,) but capitalism predates the British Empire: http://www.wsu.edu/~dee/GLOSSARY/CAPITAL.HTM

    The earliest forms of capitalism—which we call “mercantilism”—originate in Rome, the Middle East, and the early Middle Ages. Mercantilism might be roughly defined as the distribution of goods in order to realize a profit. Goods are bought at one site for a certain price and moved to another site and sold at a higher price. As the Roman empire expanded, mercantilism correspondingly expanded.

    Mercantilism was practiced for centuries in the Mediterranean before it ever caught on in the tribal-feudal lands of the British isles, thanks to the Phoenicians, Greeks and Egyptians. It was a key element to the success of the Roman Empire. More:

    lol – I don’t see any bubble burst. Check my words – I didn’t claim Britain invented Capitialism. I’m just saying it was the British who ‘largely’ imported it to the US. Similar with democracy – Britain didn’t invent that either – but the democratic and legal foundations of the US owes more to Britain I would argue than any other country. So ‘American’ system is about as original and native to the US as the language it speaks. Maybe some imported ‘isms’ aren’t so bad after all;)

    After all the US went further and improved it somewhat and in turn created influence as beacon of hope & standard of living to other countries including UK.
