    Well considering the resolution on the image is so bad you can barely read it, not many thoughts on the subject except maybe the person that posted it should really get a clue.

      What the image says is a character of Obama saying, "You see! Capitalism does not work." While the little red engine of Capitalism is trying hard to pull the Big Government. In front of the engine is a sign that says EPA.

    The People have very little say in the matter, sort of like the flies that gets swatted during a BBQ session on a 4th of July cookout while celebrating their Independence?   Either way, eventually they will run out of fly traps and the People will hopefully grow not only a brain, but also a backbone - and will never need wings to fly away...

    For those people who can't read the comic I am sorry. I thought the image was of sifficuent resolution but apparently when it posted it was shown larger than what it appears on this image. For those who are too rude to say the resolution is low nicely, I am so sorry you have the affliction of having your politeness removed. It really must be a trial.

    I have mixed feelings about this image. First off, I think there should be a George W. Bush character along side Obama's. Second, I think that while big government is bad, it fails to communicate who Big Business in collusion with Big Government is actually what is doing the damage. This is the Occupy Wall Street vs Tea Party debate. The sad bit in my mind is they are both right and they are both missing a piece of the puzzle. As for the EPA, from my personal research and dealings with it, it is one of the most inefficient and stupidly ignorant agencies the USA has. Yes it has done good, but when there are so many regulations that small businesses can't get off the ground not because they are polluters but because they can't afford to get through the red tape there is a HUGE issue. As for the claim that capitalism does not work. Well, our current model that so many claim is capitalism is actually closer to Mercantilism. The modern term for it is Corporatism. Historically speaking a free market, which is what capitalism really is, has worked while Socialist Corporatism (what we are currently struggling under) has failed. The desire to better ones lot in life can do more good than any amount of government intervention. If the individual is given the right to take the risks involved with that then the over all economy improves. As a business owner, I didn't go into business to provide jobs. But I need a worker so I hire someone so I can make more money. I pay that person and she has her lot improved because before she had no job or a job she hated. Suddenly I have out of my own self interest helped another.
