McDonald’s Corp. has warned federal regulators that it could drop its health insurance plan for nearly 30,000 hourly restaurant workers unless regulators waive a new requirement of the U.S. health overhaul.
Great! Universal Healthcare means more taxes and less coverage. What a bargain.
Here’s an A.D. 1934 movie entitled “House of Rothschild”. Oddly, the movie’s stars include a very young Robert Young and equally young Loretta Young. Both stars were “young” and “Young,” hmm?
The movie dramatizes the beginning of the Rothschild fortune and power. The movie is particularly interesting because it offers such a positive spin on the Rothschild’s that I can only suppose that the movie was created with at least the Rothschild family’s approval, probably funded with Rothschild money, and possibly controlled from the onset by the Rothschilds.
If Rothschild’s controlled the movie, then the movie was clearly made as a public relations and/or propaganda device to shore the Rothschild image. I’m fascinated to see evidence suggesting that the Rothschilds were so concerned about their public image back in A.D. 1934 (about the same time Adolph Hitler was rising to power), that they made a PR film to establish their “honorable” natures. Such PR implies that Rothschild control over international affairs was nowhere near as powerful as some currently suppose. Apparently, the Rothschilds were not too powerful to fear of public opinion.
I’m particularly fascinated by the movie’s two or three assertions that the Rothschilds didn’t loan money to start wars (as most believe) but rather to end wars–which I regard as so much self-serving crapola. Apparently, the Rothschilds are very sensitive to allegations that they use their money to start wars so as to generate huge profits.
The movie attempts to present an endearing portrait of the Rothschilds that is not so far removed from the story line behind the Beverly Hillbillies. The appearance of the character playing Nathan Rothschild reminds me of Harpo Marx. The family comes off as just a bunch of fun folks who spend all their time laughing, fooling tax collectors, and bamboozling the silly gentiles. The Rothschilds of Hazard!
80 years ago, this is the family image that the Rothschilds wanted the world to accept.
86 minutes. Interesting.
