Winter Begone

The weather has struggled towards Spring with the utmost lethargy. We will have a day of Spring-like weather, followed by rain and then snow. Now snow that will make a Winter Wonderland, but the snow mixed with a crust of ice that turns everything dull. In short, not the weather for inspiring photography.
So instead, I will leave you with a quote, spoken about America in the 40s.

“Still another danger is represented by those who, paying lip service to democracy and the common welfare, in their insatiable greed for money and the power which money gives, do not hesitate surreptitiously to evade the laws designed to safeguard the public from monopolistic extortion.

Their final objective toward which all their deceit is directed is to capture political power so that, using the power of the state and the power of the market simultaneously, they may keep the common man in eternal subjection.
They claim to be super-patriots, but they would destroy every liberty guaranteed by the Constitution.
They are patriotic in time of war because it is to their interest to be so, but in time of peace they follow power and the dollar wherever they may lead.”

I'd say we've reach this point.
Now, what are we going to do about it?
