Please note: Cartoonist Clay Bennett is on vacation. Here is one of his best works.

about Clay Bennett...

The son of a career army officer, Bennett led a nomadic life, attending ten different schools before graduating in 1980 from the University of North Alabama with degrees in Art and History.

Too bad this factory is in Mexico, the customer service branch is in India, but the corporate offices are here in the U.S.

Yep, you’ve got it, Mr. Bennett. But you need to understand that U.S. politicians are busy attending to the needs of lobbyists, corporations, financial industrialists, and the wealthiest 1% of this nation. They simply don’t have time to address the issue of jobs and employment.

Ladies lingerie is big business.....I would expect it to do well during the holiday season and then increase around Valentine's Day.

Currently one of the remaining American made products is real estate, and foreigners are trying to control that market.

And let me guess, Mr. Bennett will endorse Obama's re-election despite the dismal economy he has bequeathed to all Americans.

Looks like an awful lot of people operating one little printing machine, maybe they need a few "pink slips" here. Oh, never's a union shop. Must also be why no one was let go for misprinting the first batch "Pink Swip".

Sorry, Lumpy. I should have remembered all things revolve around Obama and the poor U.S. Senate and House of Representatives are helpless and hopeless without the care of the mighty Obama. Indeed, it’s the mighty Obama’s fault the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives have opted to spend all of their time attending to the needs of lobbyists, corporations, financial industrialists and the wealthiest 1% of this nation. Clearly, the mighty Obama forced these hapless and helpless representatives to serve these masters of the universe.

Yeah, those dang unions... Funny tho, union workers keep your electricity on, fly you to your conventions, catch criminals, teach your children, make our fighter bombers, and many more vital services. You detractors should REFUSE to accept any of these services, or SHUT UP!

patriot1... anybody who would buy that overpriced chintzy crap for a woman would probably wear it themselves. Sensuality resides in the brain...or maybe the nape...possibly in those little dimples above the kidneys...but definitely not in scratchy fabric with pieces of plastic sewn on. The Lord sayeth that BS has gotta stop.

What Century are patriot0 and tder living in, that chintzy scratchy lingerie made in China is for man ho's, watching to much Porn you poor old Codgers. The Women i know don't wear slips any more, and a pair of mens Boxers and a wife beater tee is sexier on a woman than some made up porn slave. I guess its what turns you on, but a flannel night gown would be more comfotable and a turn on than.... Pink Slips is what you get when you are no longer employed.

dude you rock!!It all starts with the Brain and then goes South.

At some point there will be no need to unload the imports since we will not be able to buy them. We keep worrying about the rich paying more taxes, which is fine but what about more tax paying working middle class. Everyone keep buying those imports as our economy tanks and more businesses fail. What incentive is there for any business to grow their business or increase the capacity in the U.S.?
