The ongoing multi-billion dollar government bailouts are themselves being turned into an opportunity for pillage. Not only does the state fail to regulate, it becomes itself a source of plunder.

    Excellent work, Larry, Remninds me of a Slot Machine in Vegas. This huge money bailout is so much of a scam. These folks are lined up drooling and with their hands out for milions in welfare.

  • Thanks Paul you got that and they are going to bleed us dry.

    The beast will feed with the unfed.
    Greed is demoniac…
    unreasonable pillage…
    do not understand…
    some day will evolution… I know.
    or perish….
    Rosa (you know how I love your drawings… Larry.. so meaningful and revolting)
