Editorial Cartoon: Sodanomics 101

Thank God someone is addressing the issue of obesity by limiting options for both sellers and buyers in a free-ish market. Freedom to use your money and time in a way you choose is way too much responsibility and I hope this is just a baby step toward relieving me of all choice–there’s something really appealing about never needing to make a choice or expose myself to risk of any kind.

Oops, I though it was opposite day.

Editorial cartoon: Of petitions and petticoats.

Someone in Machesney Park starts a petition to get the JC Penney Outlet store to stay in the mall. Seems that no business would pull up stakes when they are making money. This news throws a serious wrench in the Mall redux, but as long as the government spends its sparse coin on wooing businesses without guarantee of customers, we will see this over and over. To put in another way, unless you want to subsidize the business — let them go where the customers are.

“Build it and they will come” only works in the movies.

Editorial cartoon: Downtown revitalization

Q: How many downtown revitalization plans does it take to be successful?

A: One. Of course you’ll need to subsidize all the businesses in the area until people actually realize that downtown is a good place to be.

Editorial cartoon: A pregnant pause at Iwo Jima

The iconic photo of the flag raising at Iwo Jima might look a little different if half of the platoon was on sick call waiting to see the OB/GYN.

 

I was under the impression that enlisting in the military pretty much made you the 24/7 property of Uncle Sam. Plus, I think, probably, that being pregnant would have a negative impact on one’s ability to be an effective warrior. Of course, the National Organization of Women thinks this is a slight to tell women not to get pregnant while deployed — Just one more way that blind adherence to dogma leads to blatant stupidity.

Editorial cartoon: Reducing our carbon footprint

Would you believe that there are leading climate advocates (some of whom speak for the United Nations) who say that the best way to stop climate change is to simply reduce the population – quickly.
