    You and too many other people in this country, Cuco. And for far too long.

    You can thank the megarich and the corporations for that.

    Unemployment affects all kinds of people from all walks of life across all ages. It is not limited to a certain group of people.

    This is true (though it impacts certain groups far more than others). Do you think the comic is saying otherwise?

    Lalo, don’t pay attention to all these Negative Nellies.
    Except for one, who pointed out that negativity and pessimism are bad.
    Take that to heart as I did and brighten your message to the world.
    Yes, there’s bad stuff, but there are also more than plenty of sources to fill up with the world’s sorrow and unrest.
    As the song (kind of) says, Lord, we don’t need another bad news outlet, there are forums and editorials enough for us to choke on.
    Why, just look at this comments section.
    You’ve been doing your strip for years and nothing has changed here.
    It’s still “us vs. them.”
    Even the poster who made the comment above is always in full attack mode.
    Are you showing a reflection of the country’s divisiveness, or fanning the flames?
    Of course, this could be valuable as a barometer, but only if changed for the better.
    As Elwood P. Dowd once said, “In this world… you must be oh so smart or oh so pleasant. Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant.”
    All right, maybe you don’t have to make your cockroach smile, but that was just a suggestion; baby steps.
    And as some posters indicated, it’s wise to take a look at other comics – well, I did, and for the most part, they try to enlighten and entertain, not drag thought down into despair, hoping to agitate others who also already think that way.
    America should be positive and optimistic – comics can help us do that.

    So, indie, are you calling off your campaign to eliminate La Cucaracha from the pages of your newspaper? And what comics would you suggest Lalo take a look at as models? Which are the ones that bring you light and joy? Let’s at least hear that, in the interest of true dialogue.

    I like this comic just the way it is. There are plenty of comics that are light and fluffy. I like those, also.

    The deepest recession since the Great Depression is over on Wall Street, for the bankers. It just hasn’t gotten over for working people because all the money is going to the top 1-5% of wage earners……………………………………………………

    …………….The only thing that is going to save the Middle Class is the Middle Class. We are the 99%—- that means we have the votes to elect people who will actually represent middle class workers and provide a safety net for those who are trying to get into the middle class……………………………………………..

    We all need to know who is supporting the candidates. That is who they will be working for. They have no choice if they want to stay in office. You have to do the bidding of whoever is paying your way, just the same as we all do in our jobs. So, before going to vote, look it up on the internet. Open Secrets is a good site, but there are plenty…………………………………………If the candidate is getting their money from small donors or from unions, they are going to be working for middle class working people. If their donations are from corporations or from 1%ers, that’s who their votes are going to be working for. They are not going to go against them and do anything to help the middle class………………………………………………………………It would be political suicide.

    Sadly, enough of the 99% won’t vote, so that we will throw the rascals back in for another term or more.

    I would replace “all” with “most” since the upper 10% aren’t touched by it because they are profiting from it.
    If you are AF you will be hurt more than if you were White though Hispanics too have been hurt from it, not as bad as AF’s, though Whites still fared better over all in this Depression.

    “Recession” is the code word for “Depression” since the “D word” is too frightening to use these days.

    Their choices are few and the ones that are elected too often turn out to be as bad as the the other guy from the other party.

    Nothing will change until national media regains its honor and stops pandering to sensationalism for profit.
