It is garbage collection day here in the ‘burbs, or as the Tea Party would say, another day of Socialism. How dare that Obama spend their tax money on garbage collection when you could just….um …throw it in the street like they did in the 1600’s?
Lisa Benson is not one of my favorites, but I like this one.
Rockngolfer, it’s garbage collection day at my house today as well. I pay the sanitation company direct and have several companies to choose from if I become disgruntled with the one I’m with.
It is so much nicer than where I previously lived and I had no choice but to deal with the bloated gov’t contract provider who offered me no choice or customer service. I also had no options on what price I paid because it was in my property taxes. It was easier though because gov’t did everything for me in typical one size fits all fashion (the liberals dream).

Is that a slam on the 24 / 7 News/entertainment system designed to sell shoes and golf balls?
^Rockngolfer, yes you are correct. I couldn’t believe the endless/mindless debate on sports radio a couple years ago on whether Tiger did or didn’t while on the green in tournament.
Cable news, talk radio, and sports radio have nothing but time to fill, ad space to sell, products to hawk, and stories to generate to fill up their 24/7 plates.
So…. hiring undocumented workers is ok if you’re conservative, shipping jobs overseas is ok if you’re conservative, hiking the deficit by trillions is ok if you’re conservative. But, if you do those things, how can you claim you’re conservative?
Ian,,, Just DO it.
Rockngolfer; you can’t chose the rate if one single private company has the monopoly either.
^ Monopolies are okay, they’re the logical result of free-market enterprise.
The point of the ‘toon is one more “anti-illegal immigrant” Republican candidates hypocrisy- from Benson- interesting.
The point is the fact that California has been a safe haven for Latinos for years. Look deep enough and they are all guilty of giving jobs and protection to ILLEGAL ALIENS!
Knowing Benson’s leaning, I see the ‘toon this way.
She is saying that CA is a sinking ship, Whitman is offering to save you(CA) so, don’t worry if is the crew is illegal.
Now, that sounds like Lisa.
Let’s see if I understand Conservatives.
Closing down factories in America and buying from factories in China is GOOD because it increases profits and redistributes wealth to the rich, ignoring the fact that it reduces the market for your products.
Keeping the factories open in America is OK, as long as you don’t have any of those subversive union workers. At the corporate level, hiring illegal aliens is OK, because you can pay them less. And at the personal level if you are rich it’s good to hire illegals to mow your lawn, and take care of your dirty laundry (in Whitman’s case, literally). Just make sure they don’t get uppity and asked to be treated like real people.
