Beef 'n chicken bullion it seems, bitchez.

Beef bouillon.  There is a crucial difference.  Bullion will not dissolve properly in your EBT-sourced vegetable soup.

Chow Chow or alley cat comes soon after the beef or chicken choice.

when large, centralized, and complex government and corporate systems break down, the true extent of dependency reveals itself.

are you guys having a hard time figuring out the color scheme? It's pretty easy...........the more white, the more stamps people are on.......as things change over time and get pinker and pinker, that means things are getting better......


sarcasm off.




might be time to make the captcha's a bit harder............or have them work.

Red = bad, kind of like bleeding.

Sing it Frank!

Why not go on food stamps, really? 

I'm not, but see ads at the pizza place on Friday night for the Extra Large Pepperoni and a 2 liter of Cola using the Food Stamp Debit card (Crapital One - Government Version).

And then I pay with my well taxed median wage devalued yet EARNED dollars, while thinking of all the TBTF banking and corporate bailouts, and I start to feel like a damn fool.

Sad part is Grunion is correct.  My young son was informing my father of how the Rothschild interests control the banking empire worldwide.  He told him how the Rothschild family is one of the richest families in the world and my pops responded with "no you are wrong that is Buffet."

I like it, very obvious that things aren't improving, and the younger generations need visuals, reading and comprehending text is a troublesome proposition for many of them. 

Mantra of the mind control media of mediocrity and oppression:


Ape the young

Delude the adults.

Obfuscate the obvious.

Clarify the uncomprehendable.

Make reality polar and monochrome.

Make the masses choose between 0 or 1.

dumbo-craps vs. repugnant-cons, christians vs. muslims, old vs. young, black vs. white, gay vs. straight, 'rich' vs. poor, bull vs. bears, Jets vs. Giants.  

divide.  conquer.  rinse.  repeat.  

but NEVER small vs. big.  NEVER EVER competing asset-backed currencies vs. monopoly debt-based paper currency.

The learning curve for economics and today's global financial system is comparable in steepness to Mt. Everest. 

It doesn't help that economics is not really a science, that finance has become a game as complicated as three dimensional chess played blindfolded and the entire financial news media a vast system of propaganda for various PTB. 

It's popular to ridicule the uninitiated  "sheeple" for their ignorance, but that itself strikes me as ignorance at least equal to that we attribute to them. 

This shit ain't as simple as playing a game of monopoly.  Nor is it as attractive. 

Cartoons are exactly what is needed to make the most fundamental points for the average guy and gal.  And I see nothing wrong with that. 

The failure to make them as necessary is ours, not the "sheeple's."

Right on, Mr. Bob; maybe time to even consider the remote possibilty of befriending some of those "sheeple".

Fair enough, and agree with simplifying the tangled web of the financial black widows.

My point was that to really understand complexities of life you must read and reflect.

I see many of the younger generation not being able to digest complexities or large chunks of information, and needing pictures, audio, and wanting to be told how they should feel and think versus teasing it out of complex realities.

Perhaps it has always been this way and I am just getting old; but I remember writing five page essays in tenth grade.  If I ask Junior College students to write three paragraphs and know the difference between "their" and "there" or "your" and "you're" it's considered cruel and unusual punishment.
