This is an excellent illustration. It accurately explains how trickle down economics works. It seems to me that the top glass represents the wealthiest 2.5% of Americans and that the second tier glasses, politicians owned by the wealthiest 2.5%, should be half full.
I truly believe that high school teachers throughout the U.S. should use Clay's cartoons as instructional aides. With a little luck, the students might be able to explain current events to their parents.
Keep up the good work!
I hope the Tea Party's little legs never reach the pedals and their little arms never reach the wheel - at least not well enough to steer. (We know they can honk.) I cannot help but wonder if the GOP will survive the Tea Party and if christianity will survive the Christians. The GOP and christianity appear doomed for many of the same reasons...
I was disappointed that Robert “Bobby” Davis, coach of the Chattanooga City High Dynamos, was not included on the list. (112-55-1 and 2 bowl wins)
I believe the University of Tennessee needs a new men's basketball coach and new Athletic Director.
High school football is about two teams competing. Fans attend to support one of the teams or out of love for the game.
Displaying scriptures on banners, signs, shirts, and bodies at high school football games is wrong. I wonder how the community will react when gays, lesbians, pro-lifers, Muslims, radical extremists, and political parties show up to high school athletic events to promote their causes and beliefs. What if they show up to promote their causes at worship services? After all, they should be afforded the same opportunities.
Displaying scripture and taking a knee at midfield to pray are nothing more than publicity stunts and should be banned. Banners, signs, and people wearing scriptures (or propaganda) on their shirts or painted on their bodies should not have been allowed into the stadium. Such religious attire has no place outside of religious events.
If you believe in a god, a savior, or a prophet – then demonstrate your beliefs at football games with your actions (and not with your words or signs). If you feel the need to pray – do it without drawing attention to yourself. If you want to support your football team - then makes signs and banners, wear logos on shirts, paint your bodies, and enjoy the game.
The school hosting the game and organization(s) responsible for organizing and inciting people to violate the law should be sued.
It's easy to spot real Christians. They are out feeding the hungry, clothing the naked, sharing their wealth with the poor, visiting prisoners, and getting health insurance for the uninsured. They don't waste their time at football games. Real Christians imitate Christ. Jesus would not bash Donna Jackson.
I am so happy for the Mocs and their fans. Though we could not attend homecoming, my son and I made the drive from Aiken, SC to Clinton for the contest with Presbyterian College. Highlights were meeting Marcus Satterfield's father and Nick Craig's mother (both are wonderful people!), hearing the coaches give and watching the players respond to instructions, and an all around great game at a beautiful venue. I have no doubt the atmosphere was electric last night. I also have no doubt this group of fine young men will continue to improve and delight. GO MOCS!
