Love Your Corporatocracy!

This comic is brilliant. And it doesn’t even mention the military propaganda pre-game shows that are paid for by the military using your tax dollars. Or the sports stadiums that are heavily subsidized by local governments (when those same local governments were broke).

It also doesn’t mention that conservatives seem to love Fox News more that they love their country. Do those conservatives know that Fox News is owned by a foreigner who only became a US citizen in order to satisfy the legal requirement for ownership of US television stations, and who still owns significant media assets in other countries?

    It’s a relief to see this cartoon. Today my family is posting Pledge of Allegiance, Salute the flag and don’t care who is offended. The Statue of Liberty has her AR-15 in hand headed for France. I put the Earth flag in the comments.

    “This comic is brilliant” Wow IK, wow.

    military propaganda pre-game shows.

    Wow, why would our commander in chief allow that to happen? Or the SECDEF he appointed. You should write them a letter.

    “conservatives seem to love Fox News more that they love their country.”

    Wow. I see you are able to see into the hearts and minds of the people now. I’m so glad you are not biased. Wow.

    PSgt, as you know, I do not approve of everything done by our commander in chief (or his surrogates).

    “I see you are able to see into the hearts and minds of the people now.” It is easier to do this when one has those people as family members and friends.

    It is Congress, not the president and not the SECDEF, who decides how our tax dollars will be spent. The president can veto a budget, but he does not enact the budget into law.

    Maybe we should write letters to Congress if we don’t like how our tax dollars are spent. Because Congress is SO responsive and clearly not biased.

    Meanwhile, the NFL also pays no taxes because they are exempt.

    REDJON, that’s predictably dumb, and a lame attempt to deflect blame. Of course congress creates the Defense Authorization Bill funding DOD. And yes there are specific line items going to specific things, but as in what ads, what promotions, etc it is at the discretion of the DOD. And as such the SECDEF and in particular the OSD which is the SECDEF staff are charged with evaluating, overseeing, and managing all spending within the dept.

    If a republican were President you would lay the blame squarely on their shoulders, as you should. As I see it, it is not a left or right issue it is a leadership issue and disregard for your tax dollars by whoever is in power. Always has been, always will be.

    And yeah, giving money to a bunch of wealthy campaign contributors to be patriotic, is IMO idiotically irresponsible.

    REDJON, The NFL actually relinquished its tax-exempt status this year. The negative press finally got to it.
