    Amazing accomplishment with all the bottom feeders. Stephan- you need a Catfish, Leech and Pidgeon to move in and start sucking the life out of Pig,Rat and Goat.

    Yeah, it’s the poor who exploit the rich. Has been throughout history.

    It’s very simple. “free trade” made a few people extremely rich at everyone else’ expense. I cringe when I hear people who should know better claim “it’s good for America.”
    Funny how every negative prediction about free trade came true, isn’t it? While it’s true that it got started under Clinton and the 104th Congress, BOTH parties loved the 10 free trade agreements that wiped out our industry.

    I don’t want to get into a big politcal discussion about a comic, but 1/3 of my hard earned income goes to support a wasteful government.

    Probably 1/2 of that goes to support a bunch of lazy drunks, druggies, breeders, gang members and cardboard sign toting beggars.

    I help people in my sphere of influence when I see needs- clothes, food, jobs. I have no sympathy for bottom feeders. There is a difference.

    I’m willing to give a hand up but not a handout.

    According to The Inflation Calendar $1,000,000,000.00 in 1985 had the same buying power as $2,081,471,984.81 in 2011.

    Pig is, as usual, overly emotional, but Rat is right! Don’t “get even”; get rich! Be smart!

    If I sign up for that class, do I get the billion dollars right away or is there like a test or something?

    A dollar ain’t what it used to be. And in 1985 I could still get laid. Only 2 things in life are for certain: death & Texas.

    Susan, I take it your job doesn’t require reading comprehension

    It’s sad that this comic is turning into, yet another, politically one-sided strip. I used to enjoy the exploits f the Crocs, Guard Duck, and Pig, but I sat through the seventies and eighties with Doonesbury and I swore, ‘Never again!’ You’re ruining a perfectly funny strip, Stephan, with your one-sided leans. What a waste!

    Well, I’d say Rat, along with Dogbert and a few others, has, with a little better follow-through, just about the right personality traits to actually become a billionaire.

    Oh, no! Societal commentary?! How dare he!
    Come on people. He is allowed to have opinions, and if you don’t like them, you can go find a more conservative or more liberal comic to read. I promise, the effort won’t hurt that much.
