Forwarding Weekly 'Toons

If you are currently subscribed to receive my weekly rant via email, please read the following:

  1. Sometimes a simple cartoon conveys a message better than pages of words can. I encourage you to forward it to any of your contacts you feel might appreciate it. The more our point of view gets out, the better.

  2. It would be a big help to know the true number of how many people read weekly email. If you are forwarding it and your contacts do like the content, I'd appreciate it if you ask them to subscribe directly to the list via the:

    if this email was forwarded to you click here to subscribe to our list

    link at the bottom of the email.

  3. How To Avoid Being "UnSubscribed" From Weekly Cartoons & More

    Mail systems such as the one I use, MailChimp, are typically used for marketing purposes, (although my weekly rant is a labor of love for me & I derive no financial gain from it). To allow a marketer to gauge the effectiveness of their campaigns, each email contains indicators identifying the recipient & a mechanism to know when they've opened it & if they clicked any of the links. They also contain links allowing the recipient to unsubscribe from the distribution list.

    When someone forwards the email to their contacts, it still contains the identifiers of the ORIGINAL recipient. Thus, if one of these contacts clicks the Unsubscribe link, they've just removed the person who forwarded it to them, from the list. The same applies if any of them, in turn, forwards it to their friends, etc. I found this out when my own mother was unintentionally unsubscribed from my distribution list in this exact fashion.

    Once a person has unsubscribed, I cannot add them back to the list, only he or she can do that.

    To prevent this from happening to you, you should remove the:

    unsubscribe from this list   update subscription preferences

    links from the bottom of the email before forwarding it to anyone.

    Sometimes the email runs long and the email is truncated. In these cases you may not see the unsubscribe link at the bottom unless you do whatever your email system provides for you to see the entire message in these cases.

    In Gmail, you'll see something like: [Message clipped] View entire message

    I hope you enjoy and find my weekly efforts valuable.

    In Liberty, John

"Do not blame Caesar, blame the people of Rome who have so enthusiastically acclaimed and adored him and rejoiced in their loss of freedom and danced in his path and given him triumphal processions.

Blame the people who hail him when he speaks in the Forum of the "new wonderful good society" which shall now be Rome's, interpreted to mean "more money, more ease, more security, and more living fatly at the expense of the industrious".

- Marcus Tullius Cicero (106-43 BC)


"It does not take a majority to prevail - but an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men."

-- Samuel Adams

"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free."

-- Ronald Reagan

"The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism, but under the name of liberalism, they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program, until one day America will be a socialist nation without ever knowing how it happened".

-- Norman Thomas
Socialist Candidate for President of the United States 1944
