OK, it’s tasteless, but it isn’t an adults-only cartoon like Google seems to think I run here My apologies to my readers for posting so late…my arthritis has been acting up and I lay down for a little rest while I was inking and suddenly turned to see the clock saying 5 am…I’ll have more on my Google stuff later in the day…
It’s about time corporate America learned that if you screw around, you get screwed back. Executives are more than willing to accept obscene salaries when taking credit for a company’s good performance, but become ostriches when they are presented with malfeasance–oh gee, I didn’t know THAT was going on. That doesn’t wash anymore. This was as much a robbery as a holdup man sticking up a bank teller, only the take was in billions instead of a few paltry dollars.
Once again, this administration makes a judgement call and it calls for secrecy. Even if the government is acting in an illegal fashion, it is even MORE unlawful to blow the whistle on it or even be the recipient of said whistle-blowing information, according to the man who helped justify our use of torture. In a further demonstration that the principle of the separation of powers is considered null and void, a congressman’s office was searched by order of our own little Heinrich Himmler. Now, I will admit it looks bad for Jefferson (and The Party will undoubtedly use this incident to make the Democrats look as bad as the Republicans), but there is a principle at stake here. Does the executive branch trump Congress? And if so, why weren’t searches done of Duke Cunningham’s offices (as Steny Hoyer pointed out)? If Hastert and Boehner are complaining about this, this IS an issue!keep looking »
