    Margaret Sanger: A Life of Passion
    Trained as a nurse and midwife in New York’s Lower East Side gritty slums, Margaret Sanger grew aware of the dangers of unplanned pregnancy—both physical and psychological. Sanger ignited a movement that has shaped our society to this day. Her views on reproductive rights have made her a frequent target of conservatives and moral zealots.

    In this captivating new biography, the renowned feminist historian Jean H. Baker rescues Sanger from such critiques and restores her to the vaunted place in history she once held.

Why Trump is Not Qualified for President

Donald Trump NOT QUALIFIED

Donald Trump NOT QUALIFIED

1) Committing Treason by encouraging Russian foreign intelligence service to commit an act of war (cyberespionage) against the United States.

18 U.S. Code § 2381 – Whoever…is guilty of treason…shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.

2) By breaking US law by doing business with Cuba during the Cuba embargo.

3) Using third world dictatorship tactics by threatening to jail Hillary should he be the winner.

4) Locking room talk makes him susceptible to blackmail by foreign intelligence services.

5) For the first time the American intelligence has come out against Trump. The American intelligence community is queasy about him. Michael Hayden, the former head of the CIA and NSA and Michael Morell, the former deputy director of the CIA have both questioned Trump’s fitness for president.

Complete lack of knowledge of global issues.

His antisemitism would make him unreliable supporter of Israel.

Breaking our democratic tradition of not revealing the secret intelligence information that is given during the special secret intelligence briefings for presidential nominees. This is worst than any inadvertent disclosures made by Hillary clinton.

6) Breaking our democratic tradition of presidential nominees releasing their tax returns for public scrutiny which dates back to Richard Nixon.

7) Breaking our democratic tradition of presidential nominees releasing their medical records.

8) Trump is racist.

Trump implied that Gonzalo Curiel, because of his Mexican heritage, could not fairly hear the class action case against his for-profit Trump University.

Trump was the leading proponent of “birtherism,” the racist conspiracy theory that President Barack Obama was not born in the United States and is thus an illegitimate president.

9) Trump is anti-Muslim.

Retaliated against Muslim Gold Star parents of the late Army Captain Humayun Khan.

Calling for a “total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States.”

10) Trump is an anti-Semitic

He that claims Clinton “meets in secret with international banks to plot the destruction of U.S. sovereignty in order to enrich these global financial powers.”

Tom Corbett has never grown up

Many people believe that today’s youth are more disrespectful and obnoxious than those in previous generations. The worry is that the youth of today will lead to adults with little regards to civil discourse and respect for people with differing viewpoints.

There might be something to this view.

Our research librarian Kat A. Logue found this detention slip. “Tom Corbett used the ‘F’ word in the hall multiple times. When I said to him I should not hear that word he told me to plug my ears & walked away.”


Tom Corbett detention slip

It’s no wonder when asked about his bill requiring women to watch the ultrasound video, Pennsylvanis Governor Tom Corbett (R) flippantly dismissed concerns saying, “[they] just have to close [their] eyes.”

The Founding Fathers or the Founding Liberals?

New Designs

The Founding Fathers or the Founding Liberals

Brother Apollo has created another design. This week our newest design consists of what is arguably the five most important American Founding Fathers: Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, John Adams, and James Madison.

Woodcuts portraits of the Founding Fathers were cleaned up before being used in the design. Previously digitized signatures are placed underneath each portrait to identify the Founding Father. The design is black on white but is available on colored t shirts.

So buy our America’s Founding Fathers design to express your political support for our democratic country — the good old USA!

A Truthmonk design.

New John F. Kennedy Quote and Liberal Accomplishments Designs

We are excited to announce that Brother Apollo has designed not one but two new designs!

Brother Apollo has always liked President John F. Kennedy elegant defense of liberals.

Kennedy’s Elegant Quote in Defense of Liberals and Liberalism —

…if by a liberal they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people — their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights, and their civil liberties — someone who believes that we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by a liberal, then I’m proud to say that I’m a liberal.

John F. Kennedy
September 14, 1960 speaking before the New York State Liberal Party

Brother Apollo said, “With all the discussion of Senator Barack Obama being like JFK, Kennedy’s quote came immediately to mind. I knew then that I had to do something with it. I wanted to come up with a way to inform those who may not remember or know about the quote, about its existence.” Below is the result of Brother Apollo efforts.

While pondering his design options, Brother Apollo commenced ruminating about liberalism effects upon mankind. After filling up several scrolls, it was suggested he display the effects of liberalism. Not one to run from a challange, Brother Apollo came up with a design displaying off some of the accomplishments of liberalism.

“Liberalism have push societies forward in many areas. Many people don’t associate these accomplishments as part of liberal movements and don’t think of themselves as liberals. Some of these people may start thinking deeper about what is and isn’t liberalism,” Brother Apollo said.

Some of the accomplishments of liberalism that Brother Apollo came up with are:

  A 40 hour work week
A minimum wage
Social Security
Safe food
Safe products
Civil rights for all
A balanced Federal budget
Regulation of financial markets
Clean air and water
Federal Deposit Insurance Corp.
The G.I. Bill Of Rights
Overtime pay
Child labor laws
Workers’ compensation
Unemployment insurance
Securities & Exchange Commission
Medicare/Medicaid
Peace Corps
A woman’s right to vote
Student grant and loan programs
Employer paid medical insurance
Employer paid vacations
Employer funded pension plans

Shown below is Brother’s Apollo’s design.
