    Your congressman is likely to be one of the super-rich anyway. So, two birds with one stone.

    Call the EPA first. There are rules as to what you dump in water.

    Rat? It would be inconsistent for him to do anything about anything outside of himself.

    Don’t pollute that lakes just throw them into a volcano, and we might as well throw in the lawyers and the politicians as well.

    Really? You’re going to throw in political views? The one thing I liked about “Pearls” was it wasn’t “Doonesbury”, but funny for the sake of being funny. That’s the way comics strips used to be, funny. Sorry to see you bow to left or right wing demonizing rhetoric Steven, I’ll have to cancel you off of my favorites.

    Here’s a thought – instead of feeling jealous or angry or making yourself out to be a victim, do what you can to become one of the rich. They weren’t just handed it, they worked hard for it.

    The super-rich were smart and worked very hard to get the right grandparents…go ahead, check it out by the numbers.

    But I totally disagree with Rat on this very important ideological incisive decision: instead of lakes, I favor guillotines. We could discuss this or toss a coin…GOTP delenda est…de Oppresso Liber…

    I read the newspapers and I watch the news. When I listen to these people talk, the people who swore to represent us, I do not hear the words of a patriot. Instead I hear the excuses and promises (on both sides) of a man who only wants another term in office. When i look on the streets, I do not see proud Americans. I see blind sheep, who forgot their part in this great country. I cannot believe what I hear from some of these comments. “America’s insatiable greed” what is that supposed to mean? Capitalism made this country, it spawned the American dream. But now, we call it evil, because politicians tell us to do so. “Socialism” so they say “is the only way everyone can be happy and equal”. Do they not see that socialism has failed every time throughout history?” Do they not realize that they are destroying what made this country great? We stand back trying to figure out who is at fault. I will save you some thought. You, the people, have failed my country. You, the people, have forgotten what in means to be American. You, the people, are the reason why we are in bad times today. You, my brothers, have forgotten what it means to be a patriot. This country will only fall if we stand by and let it. Will you not remember your part as an American and patriot, and save our country from destruction?

    Part of me agrees with the rodent. It is not the first time that has happened, but it is scary nonetheless. A good Halloween fright, I guess.

    In the depression there were also super rich persons doing better than ever, that is because they changed their way of building products to get the less wealthy persons buying them. Packard did this buy building less expensive autos.

    There are plenty of rich persons around like university professors and others just giving persons a scapegoat to blame, or Al Gore environmentalists scam artists taking advantage of the ignorant wanting to help the environment

    Funny how twenty years ago we were always hearing how the Great Depression was caused by too much wealth being held by to little of the population. (And that it could never happen again because of government regulations.)

    Funny how you never hear that argument any more!

    My congressman turned off his phone so you can’t call him. Literally I mean, he turned off his phone. And his staff stopped answering emails. Well, to me anyway. I read recently that, from 1980 until now, the top 1% increased their income by 275%. Despite economic crisis (or maybe because of it). The other 99% had their incomes increase 40%, mostly due to inflation.

    Before I clicked to read the comments I feared it; readers would use this as their pulpit to pontificate instead of sticking to the strip. But I hoped that PBS folks were a cut above.

    Big diff between wealth which is earned and deserved and wealth which isn’t. Ayn Rand’s “Atlas Shrugged”. That was a tough book to read. So many people are rich from taking advantage of people with less power or resources. If you make a product and everyone buys it, fine. You’re entitled to what you earn. But money from cheating the less fortunate, those people should be pushed in a lake with a nice big bag of coins and cash stacks tied to their ankles.

    The Ultra-Rich OWN us, and use us like disposable tampons. Our ‘Government’ exists only to protect the powerful, to make the rich richer, and to keep the rest of us obedient, ignorant, powerless sheep, waiting to be led to the slaughter. The ‘Patriot Act’ allows the Government to use the Bill of Rights as toilet paper. To you idiots who think only what Rush TELLS you to, and believe Jesus only cares about the rich, you will be the first to be fed to the Morlocks.
