Friday Cartoon Fun: Tax The Rich Edition


It's Passover

That means light blogging because I am busy reclining while I eat no yeast (except all the leavened stuff I will eat).


Yo-Yo Is Surely Proud Of This Guy

I just need to say that this young man is showing innovation that would get smacked down if a kid tried to pull that in school -- beat-box cello is surely not on the test.

Song Of The Day: Hava Nagila

This is a version of Hava Nagila you probably have not heard. A few years ago my second graders performed the Hora to this version. It rocked. If I can find the video I will post it.

Hava nagila, hava nagila
Hava nagila venis'mecha
(Let us rejoice, let us rejoice. Let us rejoice and be happy)


Hava neranena, hava neranena
Hava neranena venis'mecha
(Let us sing, let us sing. Let us sing and be happy)

Uru, uru achim
Uru achim belev same'ach
(Awake, awake, brothers.  Awake with a happy heart)

"Throw Out The Money Changers"

Chris Hedges speaks in front of Bank of America. Ouch!

The priests in these corporate temples, in the name of profit, kill with even more ruthlessness, finesse and cunning than Raskolnikov. Corporations let 50,000 people die last year because they could not pay them for proper medical care. They have killed hundreds of thousands of Iraqis and Afghanis, Palestinians and Pakistanis, and gleefully watched as the stock price of weapons contractors quadrupled. They have turned cancer into an epidemic in the coal fields of West Virginia where families breathe polluted air, drink poisoned water and watch the Appalachian Mountains blasted into a desolate wasteland while coal companies can make billions. And after looting the U.S. treasury these corporations demand, in the name of austerity, that we abolish food programs for children, heating assistance and medical care for our elderly, and good public education. They demand that we tolerate a permanent underclass that will leave one in six workers without jobs, that condemns tens of millions of Americans to poverty and tosses our mentally ill onto heating grates. Those without power, those whom these corporations deem to be ordinary, are cast aside like human refuse. It is what the god of the market demands.
