Flashback Friday to the one time my principal told me she knew she couldn’t get away with anything she wasn’t supposed to have the power for because I would call her out on it 😂
YES.YES.YES. People need to realise this
This belongs more on Facebook than it does on tumblr.
i think you’re missing out on some of tumblr then… but it should be on facebook too, it should be on every social media site!
I like how this one acknowledges the problems faced by both genders instead of just taking extreme ends of the spectrum like the majority of posts I see on tumblr
So, this is a bit random, but I would love to Find someone to start a blog with to discuss libertarian/conservative viewpoints with others. If Anyone is interested shoot me an ask!
Totally would be but I’m…
Me also. If you want a minarchist, I’m your man.
I’m not sure if I understand your premise.

Jewish And Arab People Posing Together Online, ‘Refusing To Be Enemies’
In the midst of news about the ongoing Israeli-Palestinian conflict, some people are posting photos online for an international social media campaign on Facebook and Twitter, with the hashtag, #JewsAndArabsRefuseToBeEnemies.
I’ve always believed that politicians create wars. Most human beings on this planet are good and want to live in peace. Thank you to whoever put this beautiful photoset together!
^^^^ this… Politicians make wars.
People deposit money at a bank under agreement that whenever they so choose, they can withdraw their money in full. For the bank to be able to fulfill this obligation, it must keep as reserves the total balance deposited by its customers. Banks, then, are nothing more than warehouses for money, issuing receipts (money substitutes) in exchange for deposits. If depositors seek to withdraw their cash but the bank doesn’t have it on hand, the bank will be deemed insolvent – an event referred to as a “bank failure.”
Before the Federal Reserve Act, banks often held only a fraction of their liabilities as reserves because by loaning out a portion of it — even though it was their customers’ property – they could make serious dough through collecting interest. The only problem they encountered were bank runs, when they received more claims for redemption than they had cash available. This meant default and bankruptcy, save some sort of outside help.
Murray N. Rothbard demonstrated thirty years ago in his masterful essay Origins of the Federal Reservethat bankers and big business in the late 1800s began to call for a central bank as a “lender of last resort,” an institution that had the power to perform “bail outs” through printing money. After a massive propaganda campaign, they finally got their way in 1913.
Rather than risk default through fractional reserve banking, the Fed guarantees the banks have nothing to worry about. Today the reserve requirement is only 10%, meaning for every dollar deposited, the bank can lend out (i.e., “create”) an additional 90 cents.
“New” money enters circulation in competition with “old” money, bidding up prices for the first goods bought with it. But prices exist in relation to one another, so even though some prices will rise first, eventually all will rise as the market restores its desired proportions. For this reason, the total size of the money supply is irrelevant: only a change in this quantity matters because it causes a redistribution of wealth to the first receivers of the new money (government, bankers, big business, etc.) from the public at large.
Before the Fed, banks got away with this wholesale rip-off only insofar as the public placed confidence in their solvency. The last century has been distinct with the banks filling their own pockets practically without end. Since 1913, the dollar has lost over 95 percent of its exchange value. …
So much for the Fed as “guardian of the U.S. dollar.”
Until holders of US dollars understand that they are being robbed by the very people who claim to be protecting their money, more of the same will follow. And until then, the intellectual army of economists employed by the Fed and the big banks will be eager to keep the lies going and the people in the dark.
Contrary to the popular notion that the Federal Reserve has the public welfare in mind, the sober observer would have to conclude that the Fed is all about special privileges for the few at the expense of the many.
I’ll have to further ponder this.
