    Don’t forget your government paid cancer treatments for your choices to smoke cigarettes heavily most of your life and take dextroamphetamines daily for thirty years.

    Whenever someone rants about the “evils” of regulation, I always think of this cartoon.

    Social Security? You mean the “retirement insurance” everyone is forced to buy? The program that has been expanded to cover everyone even non contributors? The program that is now finding it impossible to keep it’s promises?
    Sound familiar?

    Link to what I believe is the same cartoon @sherlockwatson mentioned: http://s3.credoaction.com.s3.amazonaws.com/comics/wp-content/uploads/2010/10/TMW2010-10-20colorlowres.jpg

    Pab, you mock racists for three days (for three ways to Sunday, deservedly and hilariously), then stop. Why? Then you mock Republicans with unfunny media stereotype jokes that sound like they’re written by Michael Moore and Chris Matthews for a week. Again, why? I’ve seen enough of your work to know we disagree on many issues. But for the most part, I find your work hilarious.

    The cutoff of the Klan/bigot/racist-mocking strip I’m still trying to figure out. Except that something like that should be utterly mocked. And for two days it was… Then supplanted after, from what I see, are complaints from those so sensitive, so “P. C.,” that you can’t make fun of hardcore racists. (People that in my opinion SHOULD be mocked.) Because bringing racism (and its despicable continued existence) up in a public forum is “bad taste” and “hurtful.”

    Soooo, in the space of one week to the next: the interruption of the strip for Oscar Wilde on Thursday, I understand. The following strips—especially THIS week, read like someone being scared off a subject. And then jumping into the most P. C. storyline possible. Please go back to being cutting-edge, and satirizing BOTH sides in future issues. Not blindly following a popular stereotypical view. Otherwise, I could see you baking your recipe for “Hot Cross Buns” in your future… for YOUR master!

    Such language !!!


    Had lunch today with a mate who says he regularly throws in spurious, random searches when he’s using Google … just to keep the NSA on its toes.

    Not everyone. Railroad employees have a similar program, but is solvent. Many states have their own system that exempts their public school employees and conduct their own system. Some cities are exempt, Galveston, Tx is the best known example, but most of the other cities with their own retirement systems are close to bankrupt in their retirement system. Social Security’s biggest winners are already dead. If you are of an age, you would have known many people who paid in a year and drew what we would consider a small check monthly for thirty years. When Social Security was created the average life expectancy for a man was less than 65, and the current life expectancy for a male entering the work for is 80ish, because of better knowledge about health, and safety regulations. Yet the government has not adjusted Social Security for age inflation, except just a tiny bit for people born after some year, perhaps 1950, and that was reasonably done. Originally my 1 or 2 percent Social Security tax has risen to 6.2 percent lib the first approximately $110,000, with the business contributing an additional 6.2 percent. The deduction on my check was marked For Old Age Survivors Benefits.

    Medicaid is 1.45% of your entire salary, except deferred benefits, with the employer matching your tax payments, for a total of 2.9% of your entire salary to provide a safety net for the less fortunate.

    By comparison, everyone in Australia is taxed a total of 1.5 percent total for Medicaid, which is their National Health System. It provides basic benefits, and if you want a butt lift you must either pay it yourself, or purchase private insurance from an insurance company. Private insurance provides more services than NHS, and sometimes sooner, with a larger pool of Doctors to choose from. Those patients in countries with long waits, usually have chosen not to buy private insurance soon enough to cover their medical needs with a larger Doctor pool. They could private pay for their surgeries, but some elect to come to the USA and pay higher prices for reasons of their own.

    Very few Republicans are Libertarians, and even fewer are fans of Ayn Rand. I worked for Reagan in the 1980s, and knew his positions on many things. President Reagan, were he alive and cogent would be astonished to hear the positions claiming the Reagan mantle. Reagan was in favor of fixing Social Security and Medicaid.

    Pab is not mocking Republicans, he is mocking Randians, which share very few values with the Grand Old Party when it was Grand.

    Congratulations Pab on a really funny arc. You’ve given me a good laugh, all week – something that every cartoonist strives for but often come short. It is very difficult to come up with an off-the-wall premise and continually make it funny for your readers. You hit it out of the park this week.
