    Nope, not even close. The republiCONs told us their main objective was a "laser like focus on JOBS, but then set back to trying to ensure that President Obama and this nation failed.
    Mr. ramirez never fails to demonstrate his detachment from reality. The last jobs numbers showed greater job growth since BEFORE baby bush took office. But that little kernel of knowledge is inconvenient to lies that ramirez is tasked with drawing. So we have today’s ’toon, just another in a long line of misinformation.

    Who was in control of Congress from 2006 through 2010? Who was in control of the Senate logjam for the last 8 years?

    More sheeple logic for the sheeple minded masses?
    Especially when the Jobs Growth reality steps all over the bleater’s toon, must be the House CONservatives Jobs growth target he shot at which as usual kills more jobs than it creates.

    Control of congress still resides with those who will threaten a filibuster instead of compromise and do the nation’s business. It resided with and still does reside with the treasonous republicans. But assuming your point of who was in the majority, I offer these considerations
    As for your ad hominem rhetoric,

    As usual the CONs have no valid foundation for their arguments. Meanwhile back in reality not one of the so-called “Jobs bills” that the republicans in CONgress passed were actually in way intended to create jobs. To the contrary, they were efforts to eliminate worker and environmental protections, tax cuts for the wealthy and other attempts to force through their agenda of deregulation, elimination of protections and lowering of wages. Because after all,

    Republicans haven’t created a single job in a decade.

    Those people voted to work in the swamp are too busy thinking that they are in charge to actually do anything so why bother to complain about them.

    And just like the real Robin Hood, once his quest is completed, he will become part of the rich, landed nobility due to what a rich benefactor bequeaths to him, and live happily ever after with his maid Marion. The poor will still exist.

    The poor will ALWAYS be with us. Whether it be $1 or $1 trillion the difference between the two we will ALWAYS have poor and rich alike. I don’t think any Democrat/Liberal/Intelligent Thinker will eve dispute that fundamental fact.
    I think what is being complained about is the abuse, neglect and exploitation of the poor by the rich that has good people worked up.

    Why is it that someone cannot be rich AND care about others too? I don’t much care for the unfair and anti-competitive business practices used to gain his wealth but Gates is fabulously wealthy and still does more to fight poverty than the richest republicans do. I do wish though that he would do more here in his home country, where he generated the vast amount of his wealth. But still a rich man doing good deeds for the poor.

    Ah, you are mistaken. The Repubs had many people working as “observers” at election polls in Democratic districts.

    Say, MICHAEL RAMIREZ. Just once, will you draw a ‘toon about the CEO’s who have shipped millions of jobs overseas, to India, China and Eastern Europe, to save money on wages, benefits and enviromental laws, laid off workers while awarding themselves “retention bonuses”?
    I’m betting you don’t have the balls to do any such thing!!!

    But Pea, isn’t the exploitation also contrived by their purported saviors?
    I know and realize that being poor is not most people’s goal in life. Life’s circumstances / luck often plays a heavy role in the fortunes of everyone. The choices and decisions they make also play a heavy role in their lot.
    All rich people are not adverse to helping, many are. And while I am not saying nor trying to disparage your example Mr. Gates here, you must remember that a lot of mob bosses, cartel leaders throw money from their ill gotten gains at the poor so as to look a “good person”.
    I am reminded of the modern fable about the little bird that failed to fly South for the winter. In the bitter cold it weakened and fell to the ground in a cow pasture. Afraid and cold, it cried out over and over until a cow nearby heard its pitiful calls and came over to investigate. “What is wrong little bird?” she asked.
    " I am so cold I cannot fly and I am afraid I may soon die!" was the birds reply.
    The cow thought for a moment and turned as if to walk away, but instead lifted her tail and dropped pile of hot manure on top of the little bird then she walked away.
    Although the bird was indeed warmer it was much distressed and cried out again for help. This time its calls were heard by a fox that was hunting in the pasture. Finding the fresh pile where the cries were coming from the fox asked " What is the matter little bird?"
    " I was so cold and a mean old cow came by here and all she did was crap on me! Please help me."
    The fox started digging until it uncovered the bird, picked up the poor little creature brushed it off and promptly swallowed the bird down. Chuckling as it walked away, the fox asked,
    " Are you happy now little bird?"
    The moral to this story is this:
    Not everybody that craps on you is your enemy, and not everyone that picks you up out of the muck is your friend.

    And what the 70 mil making less then 30 hours a week are doing so well or is that little kernel of knowledge inconvenient.
