Politics, Sports, Business, Ethics

Here is a funny cartoon I saw in today on the commentary section of the CS Monitor's website.

  1. Ha! That's very clever indeed. I was thinking about all these neocons who took over the US... yes, the US... and wondering what or who the hell will be their followers. I worry about this. Their sense of entitlement to tell everyone that the world needs American democracy in order to fund a war, then conveniently ignoring or cutting domestic health, environment, and social plans seems to me to be something quietly radical, indeed. And I sense that there is a whole generation thinking that this is normal, that they might make a huge profit and decide... this is the way things should be forever.

  2. Well, I'm not much into sides as I think the analysis itself shouldn't be framed as conservative vs. liberal. It just puts us into boxes. When it comes to fiscal and education issues, I know I'd be boxed into the conservative category for sure, but on social and health issues I'm definitely a liberal.

    I've got a Vonnegut quote that sums it up. "Thanks to TV and for the convenience of TV, you can only be one of two kinds of human beings, either a liberal or a conservative."

    I think it's all about parents, but since the parents are the problem these days we're in trouble.

    It seems like there were very few people who paid attention during civics class. Or, did they have civics courses at all?

    People don't participate in democracy yet want to fall back on the line that America is the greatest country in the world. Well, I hope people see that it won't be for much longer at the rate it seems to be going. We'll see how voter turnout and participation is for these upcoming elections. If it's still low, we've learned nothing.
