America and World Politics Cartoons - 25 Sept 2010

Check out cartoonist opinion on American and world politics this week.



From Denny:  The usual political focus this week has been the obvious - the politicians are more worried about keeping their jobs, keeping their majority or gaining the majority in Congress than about governing the country. Some things never change - yet these are the very things that require change.

Interestingly enough, the Tea Party is annoying and confusing the Republican establishment. The Tea Party regulars refuse to march in lock step and unbridled obedience. That would sound like people who want to think for themselves and should be a good thing, right? Unfortunately, the Tea Party is even more radical than the radical Republicans - to the tune of downright insanely outrageous.

If either group gets back into power they have promised to get rid of Social Security so old people won't have any of their hard-earned money as a modest retirement. If they can't get rid of Social Security then they plan to turn the huge fund over to Wall Street to manage.  Uh, that's the old adage of "the fox guarding the hen house" and will never work.  The conservatives want to get rid of Medicare, Medicaid and repeal the health care law so the old - or anyone else for that matter - will have reasonably priced health care.

They want to get rid of unions so employees will be at the mercy of greedy employers, paying or not paying on a capricious whim.  Of course, that's what it is like living in what is called a "right to work state" like Louisiana, Georgia and about a dozen other states  in America. A "right to work" state is where an employee basically has no rights unless they are unionized.  Employers go after anyone who tries to unionize.

Traditionally, the Democrats used to be for the middle class and the working person.  These days there is a new breed of Democrats slinking onto the stage:  the corporate Democrat - and they are just "Sellout Lite"compared to the Republicans who are "Complete Sellout, Even Our Souls."

It's important to the survival of the middle class in America that Democrats purge the party of corporate politicians and champion the needs of the middle class.  Without the middle class thriving the poor get thrown into the abyss of poverty even deeper.  It's the middle class who give generously to charities world wide.  It's the middle class who cares.  Without the middle class what will happen to those in greatest need in America and the world?

Oh, and did I mention how the Republicans  don't plan to have a government or enforce any of the laws that might pertain to Big Business once they get a choke hold on Congress again? That pretty much sums up this week's campaign slogans from the Republicans when they rolled out their tired Pledge to America, a retread from 1994. Americans are looking at them and saying, "You fooled me once back in '94; you aren't fooling me again in 2010."

Education as low priority in America far too long under Republicans too cheap to pay for it and too uncaring to do anything about it:
