Obama is still in denial about his chronic spending problem.

Support sequestration

Better cuts than Obama, dems or repubs could agree on anyways.

I personally hope they DON'T make a deal.

Of course the Neo-Cons would schitt themselves if we cut one dime out of defense so they want to deal *rolls eyes*

Sequestration will probably also mean no tax increases.


Ya kind of funny but the truth is we are handing the world reserve currency to China by design. There is no intention by our gov't to do anything to help the middle class. Rather, they will continue to support international business interests and destroy the US' reputation worldwide by sending our troops into every country to promote ill favor.

poor taste

The pickpocket element is just poor. There are many ways you can get people to think. Direct stereotypical slandering is not very effective or subtle. This cartoon is rather shabby and it will turn off a lot of people at a time when we should be forming alliances to end wars and change the banking system.


If the Government stealing our money every way imaginable is stereotyping, then guilty as charged.

I know

Im not disagreeing with the message, its just that the delivery is lacking sophistication. A black man picking the pockets of a white man is a rather obtuse way of conveying a complex message especially if you are trying to persuade people, or give them insight into the biggest banking scandal the world has ever seen. This cartoon is an embarrassment.

Not a cartoon about the banking scandal...

This is a simple cartoon about excessive government taxing and spending... I'm not trying to "give insight into the biggest banking scandal."

to be fair the A&E employee is

Third darkest in the picture.

Had he been the director wearing a star of david i would say you may have a point

Why You

Why You percieve race in this I do not know? I tend to beleive that those who see racism when there isnt any, may actually be the true racists.


before releasing anything to the public you have to see it through the eyes of the masses. To try and peg me as a racist because I am critical of a political cartoon is a distraction. This cartoon is garbage. It stirs the prejudice pot, you have every stereotype you can imagine in there. The "communist" russian, the arab, someone from switzerland? wtf?? and yes, a pickpocket. Its trying to persuade people to a viewpoint based on the most basic elements of prejudice. This does more harm than good by dividing people rather then uniting people if you actually spend some time to think things through. is just BAD

obama steals equally from all

obama steals equally from all walks of life: white, black, chinese, hispanic. so no, it's not racist.

"black man picking the pockets of a white man"

The cartoon has nothing to do with race. Your comment is something I would expect from Jesse Jackson.

"Alas! I believe in the virtue of birds. And it only takes a feather for me to die laughing."

Or maybe a borrowing problem.

Thanks a lot China. lol

Well... sort of...

If Obama could take as much money from the American public as he would like, he probably wouldn't have to borrow at all.

Love the director sayin

He picked my pocket on the way in. lol

Bernanke needs to be in the picture on the wall sitting on a yacht with a printing press blowing FRN's into the stratosphere.

Is that

Dr. Paul to Obama 's left?

If we wait too long we will surely perish!

Sure Is

In Doctor gear too!


Yes, that's Dr. Ron Paul

Holding the Bill of Rights. I wanted as much representation as possible.

Lampoon The System

Lampoon the System...absolutely, and the more the merrier!

The great libertarian journalist and man of letters, H.L. Mencken once said "a single horselaugh is worth a thousand syllogisms".

If the way the State, and their media stooges and lickspittles create obedient and loyal followers is by permanent crisis and unending anxiety and fear, the best way to counter them is to ridicule and mock these "authorities" every chance we get!

There isn't really very much that they can say against us since they LIE about everything, and when their lies are discovered, they never apologize or retract, but cover up with more lies, and more lies after that!

Utterly contemptible and ridiculous behavior!
