Dear Comrade Cartoon,

Flagged as spam and removed. Thanks though for all your work going to naught.

Hey, wait. You must be a cabinet secretary in the Obama administration.

Off Topic? Check.

Don’t have any facts? Check.

Arguing about issues that don’t exist? Check.

Re-writing Reagan? Check.

Definitely an Obamatron.

Dear Nancy,

On behalf of everyone, everywhere, we thank you for taking the risk of starting your own business.

You must be one of those evil rich people I keep hearing about who diabolically plotted to give people jobs in an insane attempt to make you and your family’s life better.

Don’t you know that rewards are only supposed to go to insiders like Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi?

So how does a guy like Harry Reid, who has been in government positions since the 1970’s, become a multimillionaire?

True story: Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid dumped his holdings in energy companies in the fall of 2008, right before the energy market crashed, and he bought healthcare stocks with the proceeds, right before Obama was elected president. Within 6 months Reid was heavily involved in re-writing healthcare laws.

How does a Senator call the top of the market in energy? 

It’s true that Reid and company  now have to report their trades, but if you engaged in investment practices like that they’d put you in jail.
