Cartoons, cartoons, cartoons.... John Crowther's Cartoon Odyssey

I think of it as The Fool's Journey. I've been asked who the "fool" is. It's me, but in the classical sense of the court jester. Only the fool was allowed to tell the king of his follies. All cartoons are available as prints or originals, framed or unframed, through my website or e-mail.

Spend a Penny

It's ironic that at exactly the same time the U.S. economy is in a shambles, our government is unveiling four new designs for the penny, the most useless of all our money. How much do you suppose that cost? I'm in free association mood this morning. This reminds me of a radio interview I heard yesterday with a conservative who described himself as "a free market, less government" advocate. He went on to admit that we were in a crisis now, and that he had no solutions. He could begin, I thought, by admitting it was the policies of his ilk that got us into this mess.

First, love the cartoon, totally agree with her. (grin)

Second, this has been coming on for years. Both parties are at fault, enough blame to go around to everyone.

OK, jump all over my opinion but it does not change the fact that both parties are to blame, they are all greedy bloated fat cats who care nothing for the people who voted them into office. The voters would not know an honest politician if they actually stumble upon one. Honest?, politician?, oxymoron for sure!

So glad that I decided not to speak of politics again. Else, I might have said something rude (grin)
