    Hulk hands make economics more interesting.

    Well, the butler certainly has the Obamanation and his corrupt cronies down pat.

    And the kid has the Republicans and their corporate owners down pat.

    And where is the teacher in all this to put an end to it?

    Oh, that reminds me, I’ve got to take back a couple of over due utopian pipe dreams….

    When I was little, when people said the word library, I thought they were saying “Lie Bury..”…..It’s not that far off….Libraries ARE still one of the best defenses against lies…..“Out of the mouths of babes..”

    (Man, that always makes me think of hot California skating chicks….)

    Yes, the European version has the new card about having the government confiscate ten percent of your savings. And not in Monopoly money.

    Now that the smash fist stands for forceful intervention, it should get the c-note

    In his rôle as ObamaCare spokesman, Jarvis wears devil’s horns. The Invisible Hand (here, not so invisible) pummels him into submission, and Sedgie the Consumer gets the C-note. Clearly, this must be classified as Speculative Fiction.

    My health insurance premium is more than 10% of my paycheck…I’d be glad to trade.

    But you wouldn’t be able to trade. The kid gets your tax dollars.

    I hear ya, K2. But I lived in Europe, and by the time you pay the unbelievably high and incredibly progressive income taxes (up to 75 percent in France), put fuel in your car at tax-bloated prices intended as disincentives to drive ($9.89/gallon in Turkey), and pay VAT on each and every thing you buy (currently 25 percent in Norway, and even higher elsewhere), you’ll generally come out way ahead in the USA. And then there’s the ongoing question as to the future of the Euro. Lee Greenwood had it right.

    I call this the Soviet Pickle Fallacy. “Eef great Soviet Union deed not make peekles, dare vood be no peekles!” Just like there would be no schools or roads or libraries if the government did not provide them, once these and many other formerly private functions were taken over by one level or another of government.


    This strip has been having great fun lampooning Adam Smith, but he was right.

    I’m confused by an aspect of OBAMACARE, if it is a panacea ( as claimed), why won’t it cover HIM as well ? Do as I say ….

    I’d like to invite Sedgie to Canada. We live between the US “individualism” world and the European “Socialist” world. Quite frankly, it’s a good place to be (Of course, Sedgie would hate it… socialized medicine, etc.)

    I love the devil horns on Jeeves, didn’t History Channel portray Obumma in a similar manner?
