    And THAT is the honest truth of what the rich are trying to do to the USA.

    ..Americans are just lazy..why,they won’t even try to get a job unless it pays more than $7.00 and hour…

    That’s because you can at least look for a higher paying job when you’re on unemployment. If you have a full time job that pays almost nothing, you get stuck in it very quickly.

    Maybe if we pass an amendment to allow noble titles in the US the upper class will be less cruel – but probably not.

    There is so much politically, economically, and historically wrong with this strip there is no point in commenting further.

    I don’t think this is accurate. I think, rather, that the “corporate classes” in the USA are completely indifferent to the plight of all others. We flatter ourselves if we imagine that they give us a thought—well, more of a thought than to throw some money to fund a populist movement (the Tea Party) and pretend it’s grassroots. But even that is primarily to get us off their backs, not because of any innate hatred or desire to see us fail but simply because our success would be an impediment to their profit-worship.

    Mr. Hound will never be truly happy since he will always envy those who are completely free of taxes — because they are not burdened by income or money.

    Haha, I don’t think the structure of the USA could be modified to a third world nation status. Then again, I do think the “corporate class” and republicans are attempting their best.

    One true thing is that the situation in my country would be Mr. Hound’s paradise, we have close to no science development, education and healthcare are free and universal, but those taxes are paid by the middle class, the rich here are among the richest in the world and at least 40 percent of the population lives with less than a dollar a day. By the way it is one of the countries that purchases the most luxury goods in the world.

    Politicans can be bribed for very reasonable rates, and they will simultaneously “purchase” the vote of the empoverished starving population by giving out extremely cheap meals, so that the vote of the shrinking educated middle class never counts enough to change things.

    Oh and @Cessna172 : we DO have guns coming out of our ears.

    I think that fundamentally Wyntre (above) is correct in that the wealthy class cares not a whit about the rest of us. In many ways our society is beginning to resemble 18th century France, shortly before the Revolution. But we have a much more solid foundation than they did and I believe with a lot of effort we can maintain a decent standard of living and justice for a long time forward. However, we cannot let any Michelle Bachmans into high office, and if you agree with that statement then you must be aware that Obama, as obviously excellent as he is, will be highly vulnerable in 2012. We cannot stop fighting for what is right.

    Why are you so upset about unemployment right now, Ruben Bolling? Just about every strip for months has addressed the topic. What the hell?

    WE the people gave away our power to create new money to the private financial sector. A fractional reserve privately owned monetary system gives an elite few the power to determine where investment goes and who benefits.
    A fractional money system is designed to shift wealth from those who produce to those who have the power to create new money. The system requires continuous exponential growth, which leads inevitably to booms and busts, and those with financial privilege are in the best position to profit—-every time.
    The idea that anyone with wealth works hard for it and deserves to keep their earnings, and keep ‘government’ out of their game, is a useful myth to keep the system in place.
