……..Who the hell is in that photo in your header. Well if you step back from you monitor (KEEP GOING!) you will see the one and only Patty Hearst aka “Tania” when she was “kidnapped” by Symbionese Liberation Army. Its truly an amazing story, if you haven’t heard about it watch this documentary. Oh she’s also the daughter of Randolf Hearst of Hearst Publications. They have controlled the news and magazines you read since the 1920’s. Yeah that Hearst, and let me tell you those guys are kinda (I use the term lightly) shady. They shifted the political landscape to the super far right after the New Deal was in motion. They also killed the idea in the 20’s that auto manufacturers release a hemp oil running engine (which is similar to vegetable oil diesel engines used today) to protect their oil interest, and set in place the criminalization of marijuana and financially back all those crazy ass “don’t smoke weed or you’ll jump out of a window” films from back in the day. And just look where that got us!! If you don’t know about that then go to wikipedia. So we find it a bit amusing to use her a our “mascot”! Ok class is over go, talk amongst yourselves.
