    Luckovich is an idiot! How much wealth did John Adams die with? Over $250,000! And that money in today’s money would make him a multi-millionaire. This once great country was founded upon the ability to work hard and get ahead, not that everybody is equal FINANCIALLY! ML needs to learn a little history before making idiotic cartoons.

    All the conservatives seem to be able to do is insult and abase those with whom they disagree…..but never have a good defense of their position…
    No-one(rational) is saying that the economic situation should be “equal”…… What is being said is that things today are too unequal…
    A degree of sharing will not hurt….if one follows the Word from Jesus..
    The degree of sharing…. three things.
    A tax hike of several percent on the ultra wealthy….this money to really pare down the national debt..
    A continuation of unemployment benefits
    Much greater “job retraining” as necessary to have more men productive.

    And you need to learn to be not not so disrespectful of those with whom you disagree.

    goweeder : There are liberal papers? Where? Blogs, newsletters, yeah, but newspapers are all corporate and spend their time cutting staff and cultivating their Koch addiction.

    Wow! You’ve got me really confused. I don’t get the impression that ML is a Scrooge – more like he’s taking a jab at the Scrooges (aka Repubs).

    I am puzzled, to say the least.((??))
    I have said nothing about ‘liberal papers.;
    Perhaps you misunderstood something I said. Do you mean ’newspapers?’
    .
    On another point: I share your viewpoint on the Koch brothers and all corporations. If we are on the same side, why are you so hostile?

    John Adams was considered middle-class. He did not have a large estate to give to his children; he saved his pennies. And he was an active farmer as well as a lawyer to make those pennies.
    When he was representing Massachusetts in the Continental Congress his farm was failing and his law career was in a shambles, because he was a patriot first, and he believed in dedicating, if necessary, his life, his fortune, and his sacred honor.
    And in any case the disparity between rich and poor today is far, far worse than it was then. The richest 1 percent of Americans own 38 percent of the nation’s wealth.
    The bottom EIGHTY percent share among them a mere 7% of the nation’s wealth. Where are they going to be able to work hard and get ahead, when most of what they hope to gain is already owned by the wealthy, who get special tax breaks?
    No one said you had to be created equal financially. But getting equal financial treatment is a whole different matter. The rich pay FAR less than the rest of us.

    The wealthiest person to ever live in the history of mankind is alive today and living in Brazil. Does that put any perspective on financial disparity?

    Going from toon to toon and copying the same post at each one is spam.
    Not agreeing or disagreeing, just that I find those who post spam as lesser persons than those who come up with original posts that reflect the toon itself.

    @Stipple,
    Are you considering the simple fact that several cartoons may be very much alike, and dealing with the same subject? And that copying the same post merely saves the time, effort, and energy of having to type the same post over and over again? Or even the possibility that one person’s “spam” is someone else’s perfectly correct opinion on a multiple of toons?

    @Notsoastute,
    I think you’ve missed the “point” of the cartoon. The “playing field” is SUPPOSED TO BE “level”. However this one is “built-up”, rather than “across”, with the “ordinary folks” standing ’below it", watching the 1%er “up there” measure for the quality of “level”, at a point beyond which the ordinary folks can even climb to begin a “game”.
