Nice cartoon, reminds me of the other anti-Semitic (in that case, Jewish) cartoons of last century. Recycled racism, cool dude!

While Big Corp News plastered the screens across America with nonstop coverage of the Bridge collapse and covering the loss of 8 innocent people. There were a number of things barely in the news which we failed to notice. First, Bush’s request for financing the illegal invasion and occupation of the oil rich nation of Iraq has been granted by Congress. Granted from the same Congress who also signed into law Bush’s warrantless wire tapping American citizen’s program while Big Corp News covered the Bridge. All this from the same Congress who were put into Office in 2006 on the orders from We the People to put an end to the bloodshed and the growing death toll of American Soldiers. We told them get out of Iraq. Instead they’ve voted to surge the war. But the Big Corp News thought that the Bridge collapse was priority #1 news. It’s sort of sad. First because eight people did die at the Bridge collapse. But every year nearly 26,000 people die on the roads of America. That means there were another 57 other people who died on the same day as the Bridge collapse, yet another thing Big Corp News fails tell the public. What they also failed to tell the public is that with the cost of about 2 weeks in Iraq we could have every bridge in the USA repaired and pay it to American workers who keep the money in our economy. Big Corp News has it’s priorities set and America’s future doesn’t seem to be on their list.

That’s alittle too close to the truth to be as funny to me as it is to you. We are so screwed. America is little more than a Banana Republic after the Bush administration has had their way with the rule of Law, our civil rights and our Treasury. I personally doubt that the Administration will vacate the White House in 2009; I doubt seriously there will even be an Election in 2008. From my perspective, their latest actions look like a prelude to Martial Law to me.

This country worships sports to the point that they would rather build a stadium rather than take care of bridges which do a lot of damage not to mention loss of life, those children who were taken off the bus will suffer in the future, the fear of crossing a bridge will stay with them.
I remember the Oakland Bay bridge breaking due to an earthquake and the first time I went over the bridge I had my heart in my mouth even though I knew that earthquakes are not predictable, but this bridge think was a known.
The democrats were just talking about fixing the infastructure a little while ago, and this bridge think happens, instead of building bridges to nowhere building a road for a well connected senator the bridges are more important.
Another think I used to live in Penna,N.J. area and the bridges there were so bad the bridge traffic was limited to two lanes, and you could look down through the deck and see the water, and the bridges back east go through more changes than say Portland Oregon which has no temperature swings either extreme cold or extreme hot, I am in a place where the bridge I use is in good shape, I don’t know about the bridge between Phila. and Southern N.J.

Uhh, America attacks first…....
“...Colorado Republican Tom Tancredo, for saying the best way he could think of to deter a nuclear terrorist attack on the U.S. would be to threaten to retaliate by bombing the holiest Islamic sites of Mecca and Medina….” http://edition.cnn.com/2007/POLITICS/08/03/obama.pakistan.ap/index.html - Thanks, Barak Obama!
