The State of The State We're In
Toons 'n Text by Saint Peter II


alt

In these difficult times adaption is the name of the game. The picture above shows the new kind of banking Uncle Sam now does with The Spank of America and other financially challenged financial institutions.

Below the fate of Mister Dollar is discussed by Misters Drip & Drop of The 6:01 News.

alt

Police believ Mister Dollar wasn't murdered in an alley in Springfield, Ma., but died at the hands of beltway bureaurats and the picture below seems to confirm police suspicions.


alt


As Mister Dollar's life was endless reviewed bythe media, many recalled the ride Uncle had been taken for by Oily George and associated corporate thugs.

alt

With the election of the "Change Canidate," Obama, many expected some justice for tax payers in the form of windfall tax applied to the Oily One and his associated. Misters Drip & Drop went to Washington to investigate.

alt

Many remain confounded about the nose dive the American economy took and for answers one only has to look back to the Oily One's policies. This is best typlified by the picture of the swearin ceremony of Cox at the SEC as seen below.

alt

Following such an inspiring public performance the SEC dutifully went to work ignoring Madoff and a blizzard of other bums, outright crooks and confidence men all of whom had the confidence of those paid to monitor them.

alt

About this time a new kind of bum took up residence in front of The reasury Building replacing the usual pan handlers, pick pockets and turn style jumpers with whom we've become so familiam. Below Uncle Sam takes his chances.

alt

The public trough has never been so crowded and with the rise of a new kind of welfare many have reversed long standing dislike of social services, at least in one instance.

alt

Meanwhile screams were heard in the nation's grocery stores.

alt

Throughout it all Uncle San perservers.

alt

As things get increasingly tough at home and major news networks report reenlistments are up as many in the armed forces realize it's easier to fight a war than get a decent job in America.

alt

In the midst of extreme financial for millions multimillion dollar bonus, retention payments and compensation claims continue to those who engineered this disaster.

alt

Never before in recorded history has failure been so richly rewarded, but right wingers remain firm in their support of those who have pillaged them as seen below.

alt

All of which brings U.S. to the picture below.

alt

Below Misters Drip & Drop discuss a way to jump start the economy that's as certain as it is unlikely.
