The History of Social Security in America

quote [ Most people think that the Social Security Administration was formed in 1935 however there was a serious precursor to the Social Security Act that many do not consider. Immediately after the Civil War, a massive number of the American population was either a survivor, disabled or a widow of a dead soldier. In fact, the numbers far outweighed that of the previous wars fought on American soil and this led to the thinking that the country needed a pension program. ]

Yesterday was the 82nd anniversary of Social Security in the US.

Social Security's 82nd anniversary ? why doesn't this agency still have an adequate budget?

Charlottesville Rally Aimed To Defend A Confederate Statue. It May Have Doomed Others

quote [ White supremacists gathered near a Confederate monument Saturday with the stated intent of saving it. But after a weekend of violence, other cities are now speeding the removal of their own statues. ]

The Accidental Invention of the Illuminati Conspiracy

quote [ ... the Illuminati are the supposed overlords controlling the world?s affairs, operating secretly as they seek to establish a New World Order.
But this far-fetched paranoia all started with a playful work of fiction in the 1960s. What does this tell us about our readiness to believe what we read and hear ]

Oh Geez. In retrospect, I should have guessed it was the Discordians.

The Radium Girls and the Generation that brushed its Teeth with Radioactive Toothpaste

quote [ The Radium Girls were so contaminated that if you stood over their graves today with a Geiger counter, the radiation levels would still cause the needles to jump more than 80 years later. ]

From Boy Geniuses to Mad Scientists: How Americans Got So Weird About Science

quote [ In n Donald Trump?s America, the tough guys are in charge now, and they don?t want to hear from any nerdy intellectuals.
