Look at me.  I am the son of a great man.  A goddess was my mother.  Yet death and inexorable destiny are waiting for me.

I love these promo-ads for Lois Lane: Fallout by gwendabond

This shows me, that finally, someone out there totally gets Lois. She’s a hero, in her own rights, without powers, but that doesn’t mean that she’s not capable of helping those that need help. And (side-ish note) so is Clark Kent. And this is why Superman falls head-over-heels for Lois. She does what he does, fight for truth, justice, and equality, without the powers! She fights the good fight with wit, smarts, and passion, and she stands up for all injustices. She defends those who can’t defend themselves.


I mean that’s why Lois is my hero. Anyone can be Lois, and Lois can be anyone.

I love this! I’m so excited for this book!

You can preorder it now guys and gals via Amazon.

Princeton Concludes What Kind of Government America Really Has, and It’s Not a Democracy | PolicyMic 
The news: A new scientific study from Princeton researchers Martin Gilens and Benjamin I. Page has finally put some science behind the recently popular argument that the United States isn’t a democracy any more. And they’ve found that in fact, America is basically an oligarchy.
An oligarchy is a system where power is effectively wielded by a small number of individuals defined by their status called oligarchs. Members of the oligarchy are the rich, the well connected and the politically powerful, as well as particularly well placed individuals in institutions like banking and finance or the military.
For their study, Gilens and Page compiled data from roughly 1,800 different policy initiatives in the years between 1981 and 2002. They then compared those policy changes with the expressed opinion of the United State public. Comparing the preferences of the average American at the 50th percentile of income to what those Americans at the 90th percentile preferred, as well as the opinions of major lobbying or business groups, the researchers found out that the government followed the directives set forth by the latter two much more often.
It’s beyond alarming. As Gilens and Page write, “the preferences of the average American appear to have only a minuscule, near-zero, statistically non-significant impact upon public policy.” In other words, their statistics say your opinion literally does not matter.
That might explain why mandatory background checks on gun sales supported by 83% to 91% of Americans aren’t in place, or why Congress has taken no action on greenhouse gas emissions even when such legislation is supported by the vast majority of citizens.
This problem has been steadily escalating for four decades. While there are some limitations to their data set, economists Thomas Piketty and Emmanuel Saez constructed income statistics based on IRS data that go back to 1913. They found that the gap between the ultra-wealthy and the rest of us is much bigger than you would think…
