13 August 2011. Politics Thorough a Cartoonist’s Eyes…

The Tea Party deficit hawks are going to drag the country down, Nobel Prize laureate Joseph Stiglitz said so, and he’s right. He grew up in gritty Gary IN, not in wooded and bucolic suburbia (like some I could mention, both religious and secular, but I won’t). He predicts that to slash spending without raising taxes would lead to massive job losses… I fear that he’s right…

******

It’s become obvious that the Republican Party doesn’t care how many people are thrown out of work and suffer, so long as they can defeat Barack Obama next year… or so they think…

******

Tea Party math… Less Government = More Money for their Wealthy Backers… any questions?

******

Rick Perry‘s religious posturing is blasphemous, in the strictest sense of the word. NO TRUE CHRISTIAN CAN VOTE FOR SUCH IMPIETY… full stop. You can have Christ or you can have Jayzuss… the Saviour of the World or the God of American Exceptionalism… do choose carefully…

******

Rupert Murdoch = Fox News = the Tea Party = the Free Market = Slavery for You and Yours… that’s quite clear, isn’t it? You CAN avert it…

******

Do you REALLY want a GWB clone in the Oval Office? I didn’t think so…

******

The individual ‘baggers aren’t very bright… their leaders have hoodwinked them and they’re leadin’ ’em by the (long) nose. However, NEVER turn your back on any of them… you’ll regret it if you do…

******

Their 401k’s tanked… poor babies! Didn’t they tell us that private enterprise was going to give all us perfect retirements? God laughs…

******

BILLIONS for bombs… peanuts for relief… Compassion… the Tea Party Way…

******

The Five Percenters gave you a measly 1 percent raise last year (if you kept your job, that is)… they gave themselves a 23 percent increase… that’s called “class warfare” and “redistribution of income”… and the working class is losing the war…

******

S&P gave junk investments (such as Enron) AAA ratings… it made a 2 trillion USD (58.3 trillion Roubles. 1.4 trillion Euros. 1.25 trillion UK Pounds) error in its calculations of the US debt… we’re supposed to take its “downgrade” of the US credit rating seriously?

******

The Five Percenters party hearty = the Working Class pays all the bills = The World According to Rush and the Tea Party

******

An aside to all Orthodox Christians out there… Paffhausen sucked up to the First Profit of the Mormons… the Mormons won’t condemn polygamy unreservedly… I believe that his moralistic bleats are rather unconvincing, no? Birds of a feather DO flock together…

******

Paul Ryan is a fanatic devotee of Ayn Rand… he believes that might makes right and that the “race belongs to the swiftest”… I think that his pretensions of being a Catholic are hypocritical and false in consequence…

******

A single cruise missile (with all its ancillaries) costs 1.5 million USD (43.8 million Roubles. 1.05 million Euros. 920,000 UK Pounds)… a schoolteacher in New York State earned 67,000 USD (1.96 million Roubles. 47,000 Euros. 41,100 UK Pounds) in 2009, that’s a little over 22 years of paychecks… and the US fired off 124 of those things in just the first days of the war. Another way of putting it is that it would have paid the salaries of 2,776 teachers for a whole year. The Tea Party has BILLIONS for bombs… none for teachers… that tells you their priorities… and they DON’T favour you…

13 August 2011. A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words… The Famine in Somalia: “Billions For Bombs… Peanuts for Bread”… That’s What the Rightwing Wants…

THIS is the face of the famine in Somalia… it’s worse than it should be because Western countries are wasting money on jingoistic wars in Libya, Iraq, Afghanistan, and Yemen. These wars have NOTHING to do with self-defence… the oligarchs are attempting to create an American World Hegemony that can never be (it’s beyond the reach of any one country, INCLUDING the USA). The “conservative” Neoliberals have BILLIONS for bombs… they’re miserly with aid for the starving. Remember these images whenever you hear Rush, Sarah, Rick, Michelle, Tim, Paul, or Dropout Scott. THIS is what they wink at! Note well that they have billions for bombs whilst they scream that government spending must be cut… hypocritical bastards. Also note that they’re buying said bombs on tick because they don’t want to tax the Five Percenters… YOU have to pay for their feckless consumption, dontcha know!

Ike was right… he warned us about the Military-Industrial Complex fifty years ago. It’s NEVER too late to make a good start…
