19 October 2014. Politics Through a Cartoonist’s Eyes…

00 Don't Wake Up the Russian Bear. 19.10.14

The Bear doesn’t fancy being woken up from his hibernation…

******

00 Bob Englehart. Sharia Laws. 19.10.14

The US forces are making Afghanistan safe for Islamic law of the most retrograde variety (they do NOT represent mainstream Islam)… the American-backed junta there is as strident as ISIS is! What a luvverly thing “democracy” is, wot? Afghanistan was freer in 1965 and under the DRA, too… fancy that…

******

00 Rob Rogers. GOP Guide to Leadership. 19.10.14

Reagan and G W Bush used dictatorial ukases (“executive orders”) more often than B H Obama has… Obama’s the “threat to democracy!” I’ll check into Bedlam with Mr Scrooge…

******

00 Rob Rogers. NATO. He's Been Stuck Like That AInce the End of the Cold War. 19.10.14

NATO is as much of actual use as buggy whips in an age of automobiles. Yet, the USA wastes billions upon it for no good purpose… the GOP demands that we do so… Obama goes along, for if he doesn’t, the GOP in the Senate would filibuster him to death.

00 V C Rogers. North Carolina Republiccans. 19.10.14

______________________________

It’s coming near Election Day… vote! Then, at least, you’ve got bitchin’ rights until the next time. Step up or shut up…

7 October 2014. Here’s Another Reason to Vote AGAINST the Republicants This November

00 Monthly change in US employment. 07.10.14

******

00 Political Cartoon. 08.12. Deficit. FDR quote

______________________________

The Great Depression of 2008 (for that is what it is) was a direct result of Republican policies. The Bushies went to war… they CUT taxes on the wealthy and corporations… the only groups that profited from the Bushie drive for global hegemonism. Wars are inordinately expensive, and seven years of war in DISTANT foreign parts crashed the economy (the more distant the theatre of operations, the more expensive it is to ship supplies to the front… QED). You’ll note that the economy improved after Obama took over. Mostly, he curbed the wars… but that may downturn with the latest military adventurism. However, that may only be a pre-election ploy… Obama doesn’t want to appear “weak”, so, he’s doing goofy things like propping up the fascist junta in Kiev and making grand noises about Iraq. A friend of mine in the District said that it may go away after the election (“That’s why Putin isn’t concerned. He knows that Obama needs to do things before the election to ensure that the Republicans don’t win”). In short, Obama may retrench military threats after the political threat from the GOP is over. After all, he did so in Syria last year, and the world is better off for it.

Don’t vote Republican. If you want to know what GOP policies would do to this country, look at the Ukraine. The oligarchs sucked the country dry and the only reason that it lingered on for 23 years was Russian subsidies… no lie… the Svoboda pigs postured because of cheap Russian gas and Russian involvement in the economy. The Republicans want the same here… a feral, heartless, and greedy society… with them saying, “That’s the way the world is… there’s nothing that anyone can do about it”. Of course not… like Bill Kristol, Rod Dreher, Ann Coulter, and Victor Potapov, they’re above the median in income… “To hell with you, if you were any good, you’d be as ruthless, and be as successful”.

Vote against EVIL… vote AGAINST Republicans. They crashed the economy once to enrich their plutocrat bosses… do you want to let them do it again?

11 September 2012. RIA-Novosti Infographics. 9/11 Terrorist Attacks

______________________________

Eleven years ago, in the USA, the largest terrorist act in the history of mankind occurred… terrorists crashed airliners into the World Trade Center (WTC) in New York City NY and the Pentagon in Washington DC. The attacks killed all those who were in the hijacked aircraft, along with many of those in the affected buildings. The total number of victims was 2,977, including 343 firemen and 60 police officers. 2,606 died at the WTC whilst 125 died at the Pentagon (70 civilians and 55 soldiers).

11 September 2012. What Gives, Port Authority? Where’s the New St Nick’s?

______________________________

It’s been eleven years since the destruction of St Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church in the 9/11 event. It’s still not rebuilt… and the stonewalling pols at the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey are pointing fingers at the Greek Archdiocese. I don’t think so… I think that the pols are trying to buffalo us… as always. St Nick’s was destroyed when the Twin Towers fell on it. That is, the failure of Port Authority property destroyed it, so, the Port Authority has the obligation to rebuild it… full stop. Accept no bullshit from politicians…
