So, instead of contributing to a society that looks after the elderly and disenfranchized now, and will look after you if something happens unexpectedly, and counting on the same system being in place further down the road, you instead opt to:
Keeping your money in a stash that contributes nothing to society or business, at least until you get to that one lst week before a payday when you really need cash, and then the next one and next one, and soon you’ve blown your savings away.
Also, if that money is “not going to Washington”, isn’t this technically tax evasion, and thus, a crime?
Now, initially I just saw this as another voter fraud scaremongering cartoon, but Matt Bors mentioned on twitter, that one should see what’s the difference bwtween the people in the first and second panel.
Answer; everyone in the first one is white. Funny, that.
I do wonder how exactly the right to own automatic rifles has to do with the day-to-day operation of the US. Because that’s kinda the point of the third rail, to provide electricity to trains. Social security is keeping people from falling to abject poverty, which is a lot more apt metaphor for the rail than US gun culture which leads the ocuntry to have the highest rates of gun-related deaths in the whole world.
Nero playing the fiddle as Rome burns is a myth, it was a propaganda attack by his opponents. A good cartoon?
Yeah, because what unemployed people who can’t find any work need, is someone telling them to just “get a job”.
I’m pretty sure most of them never stopped looking. It’s not a question of effort.
I like how conservatives think the essence of “freedom” is lost when the majority of the country excersize their freedom to vote for a candidate the conservatives don’t like.
Charities are myopic, focusing on what is appealing to people, instead of who really need help the most.
So… welfare, or “entitlements” as Chuck Hack insists on calling them, it is.
You can’t parody Asay. Yes, one room schools from 50 years ago before several scientific discoveries obviously were better.
Also, yeah, lets compare a small school in the past to a huge school in the present and point fingers at the era as a problemm, instead of class sizes.
The correct answer is: a seriously outdated form of payment.
Also, seeing that conservatives anti-tax meme only ever really extends to corporate and property tax, leaving the burden of taxation even more on the middle and working class… Chuck Asay is a fucking hack.
Chuck Asay has a website, believe it or not. It’s not active except for the latest cartoons, but it does have an archive of his older stuff.
This one cartoon is notable. It caused the Stars and Stripes newspaper to stop running Asay’s cartoons. This ran back in 1998:
In todays Racist As Hell category.
