It’s interesting to note that Sweden, Norway, Finland and Denmark don’t have a national minimum wage at all yet have some of the highest wages. This is mostly due to workers being highly unionized and believe "a national minimum wage would interfere with collective bargaining, and it might even bring the price of labor down." This has led to a very strong degree of cooperation between employers and workers.
Some might be surprised to hear that arrests for non-violent crime, particularly drug violations, far outnumber arrests for violent crime. In fact, the number-one reason people in America were arrested in 2012 was for violating drug laws. Of those arrests, 82% were for possession rather than distribution and 42% of those were for marijuana.

Q:What subsidy are you talking about? I've never heard of such a thing.
There was a text post going around basically saying this:
- $3.98 for natural disaster relief through FEMA
- $6.96 for welfare
- $22.88 for unemployment
- $36.82 for food stamps through SNAP
- $43.78 for retirement/disability for government workers (civilian/military)
- $235.81 for YOUR Medicare
- $247.75 for defense
- and $4,000.00 for corporate subsidies
I thought it could be made into an interesting graphic if I could find a source for it. But I can’t seem to so maybe it’s not accurate?
Q:You are a fantastic artist. I love your designs.
Thank you I appreciate that!
Got any quotes that I can letter or make into a graphic? Or anybody who writes original content want to collaborate?
Q:Do you design your own typefaces or buy them or a mixture of the two?
I do a mixture of both. I’m a bit of a font junkie so I buy a lot of them, some of them are offered for free.
The ones that are hand drawn are a mixture of font’s that I create or are inspired by fonts that I’ve seen.
Thanks for the question!
