    WELP,” an interesting word/phrase. A modern vocabulary addition but it fits in this case. Of course this cartoon is a little understated when it comes to looking at bonuses by top executives. 1st link an article to newspaper CEO’s salaries. 2nd is “WELP” definitions.

    As the general welfare of the nation declines, the government demands more and more funding to maintain that decline. Does this prove that the newspapers are a clandestine branch of a political party? Probably not.

    Newspapers….ah, yes. Headline: “Celebrity Starlet Trips Over Own Feet”. Page 10: “World’s Oceans Dry up Overnight”. I suppose it’s a question of priorities.

    Show of hands. Who here is reading this cartoon in a printed newspaper? Anyone?

    “Why is every comment except one missing the point on this cartoon. Why are the people at the top getting raises at the same time the people at the bottom taking pay cuts.”

    Because CEO and Executive are no longer jobs, but social classes, much like the Brahma of India. The industry they are in is irrelevant – no matter how much I may know about telecommunications, I will never be able to achieve their level because I wasn’t born into an Executive class family. I have to put up with CEO’s and Executives above me who have already failed in other unrelated industries telling me what is best and making the decisions because God ordained that they hold that position. Why else do I get fired for taing an extra 3 days to ensure my work is accurate, but if they cause a billion dollar loss they are rewarded with a 60 million dollar severance package?

    What liberal editors? They print things exactly like their multinational corporate advertisers tell them to. “Editor” is an obsolete term for figurehead. The real editing is done by the advertising department following orders.

    @Fourcrows

    Things get worse, government takes more money, things get worse, government takes more money. I think the point got across.

    Yes, it’s up to Grover Norquist and the republicans to protect those job creators.

    Progress marches inexorably forward as people become more and more angry at the way things are going. This if fact, not opinion. Opinion is what makes us think our ministrations have purpose and our exercise of power over others is useful.

    I read most of my books and cartoons from the printed medium and enjoy it more than reading them on my MAC or I-PAD. I just retired and don’t have to use the computer as much anymore thank GOD! Must be my age. (61)
