American and World Politics Cartoons This Week 4 Dec 2010

Lots of tax cuts cartoons to make you laugh - or cry.




From Denny: It appears that the Christmas holiday spirit is not living in Washington or much else in America. Black Friday, that famous holiday shopping day the Friday after Thanksgiving, turned into a Black And Blue Friday. It was a regular free for all all elbows and knees fight riot to get the best sales.

Now with the Democratic hold on the House going out of power in January we have a Lame Duck Congress trying to pass the basics. It looks like a Black And Blue Friday too. Only this time the stakes are far higher. Unemployment insurance benefits are now stopped for millions of Americans who need the meager pay. Why? Because Republican businessmen are too freaking cheap to pay their part of all the huge losses of people they fired for no good reason other than they are addicted to cheap labor overseas.

All our taxes will go up unless Congress gets its act together before January 1st. Right now it does not look like they have come to reasonable terms. In spite of the idiot Slurpee Summit where the Republican and Democratic leadership met with the President not much that's memorable has happened. Except for the fact they all agreed to sound like ditto heads when they came out of the meeting repeating the same lame lines from the scripted moment.

What these politicians should be doing is lowering every one's taxes down to a reasonable 10 percent. As it is the average middle class person bears the burden of the tax rates and tax collections with no way to escape. Think about it. You pay maybe 35 percent federal, then another 15 percent state and then there are other taxes for your county or city and before you know it most of your income is used up. Maybe the smart thing would be to force our politicians into part time employment with no health benefits so they get the idea of how expense all their shenanigans prove to be.



Why tax cuts for the rich should even be controversial is crazy. Even 55 percent of Republican voters do not think that the top 2 percent of the wealthiest should get an extension of the very expensive Bush Tax Cuts.

The unending ad nauseum of people who hate gays. This latest stance from America's most flip-flopping politician who is first for gays getting equal rights to now he's against it since he wants to run for President again. He came close in 2008 and with Obama so weak now going into the 2012 election McCain now believes he is a legend in his own mind and will finally triumph:
