5. Thank god some remember
They whine like no other! But time and time again, things are better when they lose. I wonder if anyone in Washington remembers that truism?

9. Well, they were right, in a way.
They could have just coughed up profit sharing with the workers, but instead they found workers who'll work much cheaper overseas. Thus, they became a self-fulfilling prophecy that American jobs are, in fact, doomed. Just not for the reasons they cited. It's all about their greed.

13. Can't blame 'em for trying. It's their business
But in the past, there was always someone to cry "bullshit" before they got too far along.

Not any more!!

14. Today I learned we called African-Americans "blacks" in 1887, "negros" in 1964, and "blacks" today.

15. Progress in spite of ourselves.
This is why we must not let the facists win. They are always on the wrong side of history.

18. 2000 - "Business simply can't bear the burden of pensions and expect to compete internationally!"
Edited on Fri Jan-28-11 05:54 AM by Dover


"And that goes double for health insurance, and other costs. We view the work force (not to be confused with 'human beings') as a liability, like a pre-existing condition we can't be responsible for".

26. They don't have to worry in that last panel -- anyone heard the letters "EFCA" in Washington lately?
Yeah, me neither.
