The more things change, the more they stay the same.
So, when is a functional government going to get past the theory stage? Still waiting….
What you can’t see is that those steps are lined with broken glass.
Disturbing flashbacks to those rioters on Jan. 6 scaling the walls of the Capitol in an attempt to do anything but the people’s business.
Dated “8 2 2018”
(I thought I had seen it before)
One of these days… One of these days there will be people that will seal the corporate entrance and fix the stariwell. (yeah, i know i’m dreaming)
Now if there were only a door where those people are trying to go.
At least it’s bi-partizan
Because so few individuals have the financial means.
Several M.C. Escher drawings could also describe Con-guess. Example:
The cartoon is missing the people on each step, getting the thick wad of cash for moving people to the next step.
Very few of the " corporate elites " are actually wealthy enough. They just spend other peoples money.
Corporations should be required to itemize all of their political donations in their annual report
Corporations should be required to get shareholder approval before making political donations and the donations should be distributed in proportion to the vote
Thing is, when/if they reach the top, there’s a slide to the ’86 basket. Pols are among the few who have desks with a half dozen waste basket nearby because they are high on recycling.
The people protesting yesterday (burn pits bill) were moved to a location where the Senators wouldn’t have to see them as they arrived.
“There is no distinctly native American criminal class except Congress.” – Mark Twain
That lobbyist is certainly well-dressed.
I actually worked at a “corporation” like that—Harcourt Brace Jovanovich in central FL, ‘80s—Javonovich wouldn’t let the employees in through the front door/lobby; we had to come through the back door with security guards. He tought he was greater than god and had the local pols in the palm of his hand. Last time I was in the building was some time after ol’ j had died—his initial had been removed from the logo, and the building housed about 20 employees with vines beginning to crack through the lavatory walls. . .all I could think of was “Ozymandias.”
The one thing true about which we can all agree. The Corporate Cronyism is strongly bipartisan.
This is a re re re run.
Indite Willey for the "Jan 6 “insurection”, he stirred the pot for three years to incite the people!! lol
And it doesn’t matter a darn who’s in power. Heavy sigh…
If you guys would make me Emperor Redd , I’d show you what Democracy is all about.
Corporatocracy and oligarrchy

the fact that with all your money you still enjoy the comics says a lot about the type of person you are, grouunded
We need to pass this bill because my husband just bought millions of dollars of stock in a chip company.
She’s written several books. Likely where she got her million (advance and royalties). Bernie became a millionaire the same way. Perhaps unfair that only people in power or famous get these book deals but that’s capitalism.
Thanks to all who posted links.
This is why is takes huge public demonstrations to reach the ears of many politicians and why they can never be outlawed in our democracy.
In the theoretical world you control everything, in the real world you do not control as much as you think
Isn’t the people’s Congress person the equivalent of a corporate lobbyist?
They are lobbying for their own entrance
This is definitely reality. Just don’t forget the corruption at the backdoor.
Ok, so he’s doing single-panel again all of the sudden.
Another pyramid scheme revisited!
Billionaires have a Drive Through window. No Waiting.
I’m surprised at the lack of barb wire and machine gun nests.
No matter your party, for all of us the reality way too true.
