This is definitely a political cartoon worthy of the Pulitzer. The black thing spewing violence and unrest sticks out of the theme for me. Really nice work.
I saw a glimpse of this in a video, glad you posted it here with a backstory. It really reminds me of the first political cartoons our country produced, all the way to the early 20th century. Really hope this image (with credit due) is used to illustrate the problem in the MSM.
It looks as though foreign powers have enough clout in the US to determine how they get their subsidies. I trust your paper gets a good score, this sort of funding needs to be better handled... but the money chickens have come home to roost :p
I look up to political cartoons! Really humorous yet serious. What's MSM? Ha yes, the problem isn't the lack of foreign say tho, it's the lack of foreign lower classes's say - the gov't who don't really know much are doing the talking. And thank you!!
this is just how America works. its cheaper to pay for preventative care and screenings than the extensive medical bills from millions of sick people. its cheaper to pay for kids education than adults incarceration.
America could do with a lot more reforms - especially, as you point out - the way we handle healthcare and jails/criminal systems, but with the Senate always at a standstill it's extremely difficult.
