Ha ha.

I know y’all understand my point.

But I get it, who doesn’t like to hear a good curse word every now and then, right?

Especially one which speaks to the anger many feel about the present situation.

I guess with the word ‘filthy’ this should be rated ‘PG’.

So Mr. Fish, if you’re listening, put only some quaint Aesop fairy
tale style language in your ‘upsetting’ frames. I would rather
think some shirley temple or rebecca of sunnybrook farm more
appropriate. But betty boop is way too risque with her bursting
out cleavage and mini skirt. Don’t use Grimm’s as his name is
too harsh to people’s minds.

Big Buford, you have a point… but think of the people who are offended by idiots who cannot think of better words to use to get the same, albeit maybe even more powerful message across, without using instigating buzz words like your favorite F bomb.

I think YOU and all the other potty mouths need to grow up! 

Think about it.

Using inflammatory and instigating words actually detract from a clear message.  It is unnecessary and a hindrance… lacks consideration and tact when reaching the broadest audience possible.

Think about it.

A little more accurate would be a picture of 90% of our politicians. They’re all decoys for the hunters.

Time for a peaceful revolution in the US. Public funded elections would be the number one priority.

I hope this cartoon didn’t offend too many of the delicate readers out there.

After all, what is obscene? the word “fuck”, or the knowledge that most americans are being ass-raped by corporate overlords nearly every day?

Ya nailed this one, Fish.

I agree with you on this one Fish.

Obama is the face of the empire; its spokesman.

In a corporate business model, the President is like the cheerleader and the face of the company… with a board of directors and a Chairman he must answer to.

Who is the Chairman of the U.S.S.A., Inc.?

Who are the board members.

Is it not the FED? 

Can anyone else see this?  It is pretty clear.
