That’s a pretty funny cartoon. I love the look on the people’s faces. LOL.
It is NOT about freedom of religion.
It is NOT about freedom of speech.
Ikeithlu has it right, ”One should approach such things as comedy.”
Look at the people, they’re holding their ears. To me that indicates she’s just really really annoying. There’s no pro or con (to the exclusion of Angela Cummings screeching) message in this cartoon at all.
First of all, I didn’t say that. Saint Ronnie did.
‘Investment’ is not the sole engine of the economy and it’s not even primarily mutual funds. It is middle class spending and their demand for goods and services. That really isn’t debatable any more. The rich (job creators) don’t create jobs. ~[”Prosperity and jobs are the consequence of an eco-systemic feedback loop between customers and businesses. Only consumers can set in motion this virtuous cycle of increasing demand and hiring.”]
I’ve posted a TED video (I posted it once before) below by Nick Hanauer that was banned because it was ‘too politically controversial.’ Watch it at your leisure. It’s only about 6 minutes long. If you didn’t watch it before, I hope you do soon.
Banned TED Talk: Nick Hanauer "Rich people don't create jobs"
I don’t want to pick apart your post, but I will say this; it is contradictory – and includes a Trojan horse.

There is a caveat. The title should be, 'Saint Ronnie'.
Your commentary: ” Do you have proof or is this your personal opinion based on the opinion in some publication? Most corporations play by the rules and try to avoid being involved in politics.” I’m sorry Fairmon, but that is incredibly naïve. Did you really say that? Is that really you?
” The fact is a zero business tax would not reduce tax revenue it would put more spendable money in people’s hands, increase demand, create jobs and more tax revenue.” That is THE VERY DEFINITION of ‘Trickle Down Economics’ and has been debunked countless times.
How about this budgetary idea from Bernie Sanders of the ”People's Republic of Vermont”? It will ‘raise revenue, reduce spending, and create jobs’. To quote from comrade Sanders: ”At a time when the middle class is disappearing, poverty is increasing and the gap between the rich and everyone else is growing wider, we demand that the federal budget not be balanced on the backs of the most vulnerable people in our country.”
”We demand a budget that puts millions of Americans back to work in decent paying jobs and ensures profitable corporations and the wealthiest Americans pay their fair share. We demand a budget that does not cut Social Security, Medicare or Medicaid benefits.”
Stop corporations from using offshore tax havens to avoid U.S. taxes.
Establish a Robin Hood tax on Wall Street speculators.
End tax breaks and subsidies for big oil, gas and coal companies.
Establish a progressive estate tax.
Tax capital gains and dividends the same as work.
Repeal all of the 2001 and 2003 Bush tax breaks for the top two percent.
Eliminate the cap on taxable income that goes into the Social Security Trust Fund.
Require Medicare to negotiate for lower prescription drug prices with the pharmaceutical industry.
Reduce unnecessary and wasteful spending at the Pentagon.
Establish a currency manipulation fee on China and other countries.
Sounds good to me.
OH! And speaking of the wealthy ‘paying their fair share, here’s a single question quiz.
”We’re going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that have allowed the truly wealthy to avoid paying ‘their fair share’. They sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying 10% of his salary – AND THAT’S CRAZY!”
Can you guess who's responsible for that class warfare - lefty commie quote?
Oh. I got the impression you were a Hannity, Limbaugh, O’Reilly devotee.
Mmm ya. So did Edwin R. Murrow.
One can be a great reporter/journalist and have an opinion ya know.
Mickey Mouse indeed. Lara Logan and the whole research team that supposedly worked on this story for every bit of an hour (oh sorry I meant a year) should be demoted to working at a local 'Eyewitness News' TV station reporting about kitty cats, car crashes and domestic disputes.
Does this makes Dylan Davies' book, published by Simon & Schuster, a division of CBS, suspect? Ya think!
Hmm...Then again, maybe the researchers were ex News Corp. employees.
As Bugs Bunny used to say, "Mmm- could be". :-)
Conservative and Fairmon,
May I assume the quote below to be construed as an answer to my 8:04 AM query?
”Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God.”
Key theme being the inheritance of the kingdom of God' - or lack thereof.
If, as you explained to Fairmon, ” I have no power to condemn you for being a Homosexual or anyone else, the word of God which I provided you does that.”
Should we not then ‘let God sort it out’?
