Congress is what happens when you put white people in charge.
so there are no POC in congress at all?Seriously? Of COURSE there are. But black people make up only 2% of the Senate and just 9% of the House. How “in charge” can you be with only 8% representation? It’s even worse for other people of color.
Congress is also 99 to 100% fricken rich people, which just makes it all worse. Self-righteous white guys with pockets the size of the Grand Canyon and no experience with ordinary life = most of Congress.
I hate capitalism-
"YOU MEAN CORPORATISM?!?!?!?!?!"
Yeah, that thing that capitalism caused. I hate that, too.
Capitalism causes work incentive - without the risk of failing, people will not strive. They just coast. Without the incentive to perform better and get ahead, there is no innovation. Case in point: every socialist/communist country ever (except modern China, which has a capitalist market system), current example North Korea. It is when capitalism is improperly regulated that you have problems. In the USA, under-regulation: improper distribution of wealth allowed to grow exponentially. In South Korea, over-regulation, where the government controls which companies can make which goods and entry and exit is nearly impossible without direct government approval: no entrepreneurs.
I think Black Widow needs the superhero movie that we’ve been lacking: The one that says sisters CAN do it for themselves, and maybe even do it better. If Marvel is going to court such amazing fanboy fare as Joss Whedon and James Gunn for the guys, why not get lady geek gurus like Marti Noxon, Diablo Cody or Felicia Day to pen this script? Heck, think bigger: Can you imagine Black Widow: A Kathryn Bigelow film? I can. It’s glorious.
Here’s the bottom line: Today, I went to the store, and I saw Scarlett Johansson on the cover of no less than four current magazines. If you think living in a society where this amazing actress is good enough to be a sex symbol, but not a strong, independent action star is okay, then perhaps you need to reassess what you get out of going to the movies. For her part, Johansson has joined the chorus of fans in declaring she thinks Black Widow deserves her own movie, and I’m hoping people are listening. This is your moment, Marvel. Take Black Widow’s lack of movie, and let that absence be avenged."
