Although the women of the United States are confined within the narrow circle of domestic life, and their situation is, in some respects, one of extreme dependence, I have nowhere seen woman occupying a loftier position; and if I were asked... in which I have spoken of so many important things done by Americans, to what the singular prosperity and growing strength of that people ought mainly to be attributed, I should reply, To the superiority of their women.

My New Toy

I have found a new toy online that is a lot of fun to play with. It's called the National Names Database, and you can find the link on by roll under "eclectic stops". It allows you to map out the connections between members of the boards of large corporations, politicians, and big "charitable" foundations, etc.  I haven't figured out how to do screen shots yet, but here is a link to the pre-made map "conspiracy", which connects the Bilderberg Group, the Trilateral Commission, and the World Economic Forum.

This database works by putting in a name and it gives you a brief profile of the person and a listing of all the organizations that they belong to. I'm finding it's quite interesting to see who's who on the board of these big corporations and how they overlap greatly with policy makers and politicians.

Update: I found a way to get the image - I just noticed they have a jpeg link:
