    I hadn’t realized that my baldness could be sliced and diced into a monetized fear derivative.

    Ted, well done. Tomorrow’s conventional wisdom indeed.

    “Crazy Uncle Ted’s paranoia in print!” If you have nothing intelligent or original to say, you might as well use insults.

    Fear is already our #1 export! Fear of drones, fear of extraordinary rendition, fear of falsely-justified invasions, fear of insane politicians bringing everything crashing down around our heads….
    Made in the U.S.A.! Coming to your country soon, whether you want it or not!

    Ted is onto something. If we monetize fear, then we can solve all our financial problems. Maybe we can also have the terrorists pay a terrorist tax based on the value of the fear they produce.

    This cartoon is a drone homing in on one of my favorite targets. We have nothing to fear but fear itself.

    We already monetize fear. How many commercials are for security systems, Life-Alert buttons for our grandparents, prescription drugs for dubious symptoms of “illnesses”? How many people buy guns when the news shows a crime, or when someone says they will be made illegal? Why are we being told to set up investment portfolios or else we’ll be out on the street when we have to retire? We even have pay services that will perform a background check on anyone we want. We’re already the most fearful country on the planet, and there are already plenty of people making money off of that.

    In general it seems most of the white guys in this strip seem to resemble director John Waters…LOL

    “Don’t feed the trolls.” I was hoping sunrise would catch it unaware.

    Just before the Bolshevik Revolution V. Lenin said " The worse things are, the better things are."

    Lenin wanted things bad, wanted the Czar’s reforms to fail, so the people would support the end of the regime and the start of his.
