  •  Great cartoon, educational, should be read (9+ / 0-)

    by all. Nothing like simplifying something for the masses to change public opinion. MORE!!

    I'm delighted that workers are finally being mentioned in public discourse as for many, many years the plight of workers, stagnant wages, etc. was completely ignored by all! This is progress that we begin to focus on issues that are of vital importance to most people!

    It's so weird how media and the plutocracy can get the masses to concentrate on a few issues to keep attention away from what is really happening that affects people's lives. Just as this cartoon exposes!  Great job!

      Yes, the media focus on lapel pins, or a fictional "War on Christmas" and it gets people's hackles up so they don't notice stagnant wages, or lack of benefits.

      Where are all the jobs, Boehner?

    •  Info-tainment is another big smoke screen ... (0+ / 0-)

      used by corporate media to distract from real issues that affect real people.

      Why are there so few 'Reality Shows' that address reality for workers?

      The only ones I can think of are Undercover Boss & the Extreme Makeover: Home Edition TV shows.

      Something that doesn't make good sense, makes bad sense. That means someone is being deliberately hurtful & selfish. Look for motives behind actions & words.
