Recent Photographs: all photographs © 1969-2020 by Carl Weese
Terrific photos, Carl. You've captured both the discontent and the humor of these folk. I'm sure those dogs don't bite anyone.
sorry for the late post on this, but i was just reading about John Gutmann in the recent B&W mag. A '38 photo of his, "yes, Columbus dis discover " is of a sign that says..."Yes, Columbus did discover America! We have discovered the International Bankers have taken it Away from Us SAPS". 1938! I guess we have come a long way....
1938. Well, the Glass–Steagall Act came in 1932 but I think it phased in as a series of steps over time. The point was to regulate banking and prevent another Great Depression. Which it did, until Clinton and a Republican Congress effectively repealed the regulations in 1999. Then it took only about 8 years for the bankers/traders/HF-managers to loot the world economy. Right to the edge of a second Great Depression, averted so far only by a bailout of the thieves at the expense of the general population they robbed.So now the right wants to further deregulate and shift all costs to the 99% who didn't benefit from the great ripoff. Guess we've come a long way full circle.
