Equal Pay Day has passed and still not. Money talks and Congress listens. G.W. Bush paints and Jeb Bush loves immigrants. Hillary dodges a shoe and Sebelius may have gotten the boot. All this and more in the funnies. ENJOY!!
“Me know women get less pay for same job but speaking for all women as man, what feel worse to women is everyone knowing it. So me decree, on behalf of women, no one talk about it anymore.” Problem solved!
Aren’t April Fool’s Jokes suppose to be followed with, “Just kidding! April Fools!”? Did someone forget to tell the Supreme Court? There is a deafening of ink to checkbook among the Billionaires getting in on the bargain basement sales of Congressmen. Well, at least the President’s ACA surpassed it’s goal in enrollment. The GOP is in shock but treatment is covered by Obamacare. Cartoons on these subjects and more. ENJOY!!
March came in like a lion and it is going out like a lion. He ate the lamb! ENJOY!!
March Madness. That just about covers it. ENJOY!!!!
This last week is a week up in the air. Will Russia invade Ukraine or stop at Crimea? Where is flight MH 370? Was the CIA spying on Congress? Is there anyone sane in the GOP? All the questions are there but no real answers in the funnies. Try to fine a few favorites. ENJOY!!

The question to be asked of Republicans about the poor, aside from, “How can you be such complete assholes?!” is, “Really, there are well paying jobs out there just waiting for the poor to apply but the poor won’t because they’re way too comfy being poor? Name those specific jobs.”
Now, 50 Years ago tonight, I was sitting crossed legged in front of the TV waiting, waiting, and waiting for Ed Sullivan to start. THE BEATLES WERE GOING TO BE ON! I remember it well. Memories…. Okay, the funnies have the Beatles, along with all the silliness of the GOP and the misreading of the CBO Report on the ACA, and the not so ready Winter Olympic in Sochi. They’re not the Beatles on Ed Sullivan, but ENJOY the funnies!!

If you don’t know me, I’m a bit of a student of economics, though “Student” may be stretching it. What I am intensely interested in is the overarching “whole” of how things work together to form the civilization that surrounds us.
