    And Davies keeps the Class Warfare propaganda going.
    Human rights might include the right to water sources in public, provided by taxes in government buildings.
    The rest of America is Private. That is the Sector where business executives have earned the year-end bubbly, by keeping the bottom line of profit in the black.
    Davies must be a Marxist Totalitarian where Government rations all things to all people (except to the Elite Rulers, of course).

    ’Toon summarizes the situation perfectly.

    @disgustedtaxpayer …“I guess you are in favor of the corporate fascist state. Good luck with that.”
    We do not have a “corporate fascist state”….elected government has all power over our military. Individual state elected officials have power over state police. So what exactly are you imagining?
    Fascism is what Italy was before the end of WW2. We do not have that form of government.
    Who’s teaching these lies to you, Marxist Professors?

    The rich and powerful can, will, have and do exert power over the majority. Where do you think government comes from? Aside from a democratic republic, which we can easily see has a short lifespan without constant renewal, all human forms of government become tangled bureaucracies of petty tyrants under the guiding thumb of those who control the majority of the wealth, serving the purpose of maintaining that disparity of wealth and power. A centralized wealth and power structure where there are no bank execs and CEOs except for “elected” officials is a very natural progression in the degeneration of human governmental society. Marx could probably explain the process of decomposition more clearly than I, and even praise it for its fecundity.

    @ disgusted taxpayer
    The truth hurts, doesn’t it? The working poor (AKA former middle class) pays the largest percentage of tax per earnings, and stands by helplessly while privately funded politicians funnel favors and funds to corporate interests. Anyone with the bravado to try to educate the public to this oligarchy in republic’s clothing usually gets tagged as Marxists, Communists, Anarchists or just plain old subversives.
    An example: Our government is supposedly represented “of the people, by the people, and for the people”. This radical notion promoted by our Founding Fathers has been subverted by the SCOTUS by insisting that “corporations are people too”. Yet I don’t see those corporations imprisoned for breaking laws regarding taxation, campaign funding, or breaching contractual obligations to homeowners, etc.! I do see Wall Street’s puppeteers in D.C. cutting programs that have historically benefitted the common man, while subsidizing corporations whose recklessness is tolerated not just because they are “too big to fail”, but also because their failures would put an end to campaign funding (which politicians will never permit)!
    America’s great experiment of a democratic republic has fallen, and “perish(ed) from this Earth”. So now the elitists must destroy the promise of “Freedom of Speech”, which the “disgusted taxpayer” apparently abhors.
    The Patriot Act has killed our Bill of Rights, so it follows that the next victim should be those who (like myself and Matt Davies) dare to express our thoughts in public.
    Until such “radical thinkers” are muzzled, you ( the "disgusted taxpayer) can continue to enjoy your bonus’ built by the efforts of others’ labors. Happy Labor Day!

    I presume that you will happily label TEA Party people as extremists without a single example of such extremism extant, but will not label people of the Islamic faith extremists or people of color as likely criminals because it is wrong to profile or to be prejudiced against innocent persons where you have no actual cause to find them guilty of any crime. If you had three hundred million dollars, you would be rich. You would have one dollar for every person in America. Now, while it seems obvious that I should just take your $300M, it is more efficacious to take $5 from each of the other 300M people. It is five times the money, you see. The wealthy are not the deep pockets. They are the high pockets. Bleed them once and they are gone. Government money has to be a sustainable one, which means bleeding the working class. There is no source of wealth aside from labor. Not one. There are other sources of monetary representations of wealth, but they are backed only by the actual wealth of labor. There is nothing bought, sold or traded, lest it bear the mark of labor, either of the hand or of the brow. This may be a shocking revelation for some, but let us part the veil and let the light shine in.

    The “TEA party” today IS a lot more radical than were many of the folks in it when it first got started.

    As to the elements of “radical” like “Islam”:

    “And they say: “None shall enter Paradise unless they be Jew or Christian”. Those are their (vain) desires. Say: “Produce your proof if ye be truthful”
    Nay, whoever submits His whole self to Allah and is a doer of good, He will get his reward with his Lord, on such shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve." : The Quran

    “Allah” of course is that same God of Abraham, and the Quran goes on elsewhere to say repeatedly that those who believe in the God of Abraham will be saved, yet as the Quran also notes, Jews and Christians also have the “key”

    To accept RADICAL movements, religious, political, OR “economic”, IS to deny “freedom” OR “democracy”..

    In spite of all the accusations here that if I cite HISTORY, I get accused of “hate”, especially by radical conservatives, I believe the altruism taught by Buddhism, and even Mohammed and Jesus, but ignored by way too many of their “followers” of today, is the best way to go, and get along.

    “Society” is where all people live together, and social conscience means ALL people are treated FAIRLY, even if not all “equally”. The U.S. is now one of the worst in the world on income inequality, and that doesn’t mean the rich have to become poor, it means we need to RESTORE the middle class, that “Reagaonmics” has done so much to destroy over the last 30+ years. It has NOT been a result of “liberal” actions, especially as many so called liberals, haven’t been.

    The “middle class” is the people who labor. They pay all the bills, because they are the largest source of monetary wealth, and the only source of actual wealth. Whatever we spend is taken from the middle class, no matter into whose pocket we reach. That they may believe that they are Taxed Enough Already, the acronym for which puts the TEA in TEA Party, is not difficult to understand when one realizes that it is their money being taken to be spent, supposedly to make them more well off. How supporting a huge government bureaucracy producing nothing but repression and regulation will make them better off is unclear. History would suggest that things are getting worse, not better, as government spending increases. Maybe we just need an alternate history by learned men of true socialist ideals to make it all right.

    Let me guess… You hate FOX News because it is all right-wing extremist arch-conservative propaganda. You think Limbaugh is the most dangerous man in America. And you know in your heart that anybody who does not love Obama is a radical racist who wants to finish up with Hitler’s and Sanger’s programs to eliminate the undesirables once and for all. Did I at least get two out of three correct?

    “Human rights might include the right to water sources in public, provided by taxes in government buildings.”
    Isn’t that kind of a Socialist Marxist concept?
    I mean, there shouldn’t even BE and government buildings, right?
    Oh, and you forgot government hands off my Medicare!

    It is incredible how comfortable the TSE (Tax Somebody Else) party members are with how their party is secretly financed.

    Actually, the first one should say " the great unwashed" and the other should say “Political class”
    I too am jealous of the rich, but the only ones I resent are those in washington who think it is my responsibility to keep them that way, even when they leave office.
    Also, for those of you cracking on the rich: Do you realize that you pay way too much money to see their movies and watch their sporting events, and listen to their music, thus giving them more millions in their pocket? The Salaries of CEO’s look like minimum wage compared to what some celebrities bring home.

    The original Rail-Splitter could not have said it better, aside from being a Republican, of course. But he is still the ideological ancestor of our Dear Leader, aside from his Republican ideals, of course. Crushing rebellion and denying State’s rights is his greatest legacy, after all. And he never et a wedge issue he didn’t like. Or maybe that was Will Rogers. I often confuse the two.

    Like the toon. Great statement on the ever increasing disparity between the rich and the poor.

    Just as there are two laws in America, and two Americas during a John Edwards séance, there are two controlling classes, one which must be punished and cast down, and one which must be raised up and placed in power in perpetuity. Heard an interview of Cindy Sheehan yesterday. She is still of the opinion that the President should not get America involved in a war, but there is, quite oddly, no great presence of reportage. I guess not everything is journal-worthy in the popular press My Little Pony diary.
