Cartoons, week of 08.23.09

Several things were going on this week than concerned me. The ongoing debate over the health care legislation was at the top of the list. President Obama struck out at GOP leaders claiming that they targeting his health care bill for failure and that is why he has been having so much trouble getting by-partisan support. The simple fact is that it is a terrible bill, and awful idea at the core and just plain blind. He has no one to blame but himself.

As the Whitehouse continues to gather information on it's enemies (illegally) I begin to see something more frightening that the Bush Whitehouse ever tried to do. I never was in favor of all the information collection they were doing, but asking people to email the Whitehouse with names of people who were passing bad information on health care is just plain wrong, illegal and an abuse of power. Scary things loom on the horizon...

Cash for Clunkers continues to be called a raving success, but time will show the cracks in this plan. People who couldn't afford a new car yesterday are driving one today... give that about 6 months, old cars that some people rely on used parts for are going to the scrap yard, others that should be scrapped are showing up on used car lots, Toyota sold more cars than the nationalized american car companies, blah, blah, blah. Not to mention the fact that the government is very slow reimbursing already cash-strapped car companies. Another example of why the government should not be in the car business or any BUSINESS at all.
