Most medicine today is in pill form, not liquids, so I assume what Ramirez here means is that Ryan is a Snake Oil peddler. A Good Cartoon.
Equating women’s rights and healthcare on the national stage with regulations on sugary drinks in one city is as ignorant as forgetting whether New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg has an R or a D by his name. A good cartoon.
Bullfighting has become increasingly unpopular in Spain, and the province of Cataloniahas even banned it. Spain is much more on the road to recovery compared to Greece, but Matadors might well be out of job soon. A Good Cartoon.
Actually, the economy is at a bit of a plateau at the moment. And there’s a lot more to “the economy” than the policies of the POTUS. The financial institutions all over are shaking due to a historically dramatic crash in 2008. The whole crisis is the chickens coming to roost from 30 years of market neo-liberalism*, as we finally begin to understand that the consept of “unlimited growth” is at its very core unstainable and impossible.
But you know, drawing Uncle Sam as hysteric, unaware of the reality of the situation, and with unrealistically high expectations from the office of President of their own country, is accidentally A Good Cartoon.
*which has nothing to do with the American label of “liberal”, Liiberal here means liberarian economic policy, though admittedly neither of the two parties did much to regulate it, GOOP just did even less.
Republicans hate other people, a good cartoon.
Opponents of gay rights are cowards and hypocrites, hiding their bigotry behind facile lies to avoid public ostracism and because their supposed convictions are fundamentally indefensible. A good cartoon.
I don’t get the “gay divorce” meme. Truth is, of course if marriage rights are extended outiside the cis-heteronorm, some of these newly empowered couples will end up divorcing. But they’ll be a drop in the bucket in the grand scheme of things.
The conservative reaction to growing acceptance of gay marriage is typified by Fred Sanford, whose running gag was to fake a heart attack when things were not going his way.
A good cartoon.
Black support of marriage equality is only marginally smaller than white support, and with NAACP and many public figures publicly following Obama, it’s a mark of changing winds.
Also, who holds a newspaper like that, anyway?
Capital is dead labor, that vampire-like, only lives by sucking living labor, and lives the more, the more labor it sucks.
- Karl Marx, Das Kapital. A good cartoon.

I’d label Sisyphus “Greece” and the boulder as “Austerity”, and then it would be A Good Cartoon™
Yeah, the Greek situation seems to just fall back down periodically, but that’s because the Austerity doesn’t just cut junk spending; it also cuts necessary spending that creates any foundation for economic recovery.
