The comic was more than likely originally in spanish or the writer's first language was spanish or any other language that puts an exclamation before and after the word.

the real answer is that its probably spanish they put an upside down version of ! or ? at the beginning and end of the words or words that they want to be affected by the punctuation.

You are right, but this guy seemed to think it was just simply taxes. The protest didn't give them representation, it only lead to more severe taxation. It seemed like he thought it lowered the taxes, so I assumed he thought they were a problem to begin with, but in retrospect he may have not known anything about the tea party to begin with other than, "America is rebellious, **** Britain!"

... you obviously don't know what protests actually are.

it's a method of making sure people know you are upset, thus forcing something to be done about it.

occupying public places and organizing marches are highly visible ways to gather more people and insure that you cannot be ignored or overlooked.

Are you stupid? I think you missed the point of the cartoon. The cartoonist wasn't implying that the government want to physically hurt you, but they oppress the lower class and are after your money and information. They want to have us all in a database with all of our interests and contacts.

-NSA scandal

We're being forced to buy healthcare which is UNCONSTITUTIONAL
While we're on that subject, Obama's pitch for the "affordable healthcare act" was that millions of americans can't afford healthcare- myself included. I can't afford Obamacare either, so now I'm going to be FINED. That's government oppression. If I refuse to pay these fines they'll take it from my tax returns, and if I refuse to pay taxes they could kidnap me and throw me in jail.

You argue that the government doesn't want to hurt you, but do you think they really care about your freedoms being protected, which is why they were established in the first place? NO! Look at US history! They've always backed large corporations with the promise of big bucks.
- Oil wells being built on private property
- The trail of tears; millions of natives being forced out of their homes, and being murdered by the government so that they could build railroads to transport oil
- The government lobbying for large pharmaceutical companies that keep medicine expensive and marijuana illegal
- Lobbying to keep the poisonous chemicals in our food (MSG, HFCS, Sodium Benzoate, etc.)
- Facebook, Google etc. giving your private information to the government
- TSA agents scanning your body and going through your belongings
- THE LIST GOES ON

I'm not exactly a conspiracy theorist, but isn't it weird how most electronics today have cameras pointed right at you? just a thought...

Have you not heard of the Patriot Act? Isn't it funny how they gave it that name but the **** in it is UNCONSTITUTIONAL!

I'm sure the individuals that work for the government don't have bad intentions but we'd created a monster that must be stopped.

Agree with 90% of what you listed. Im also a person whocan't afford Health insurance or Obamacare. The way I see it is I just will not pay the fines. I have a under the table job so I don't have to worry about it being taken out of my tax return.

The government is not allowed to FORCE you to buy anything. It really goes to show you how many Federal judges must get bribed to support this crap and the Nsa spying ********

He's saying that government wasn't designed to hurt us, so you should stop addressing the cause of whatever your problem is as just simply "government."

Maybe you would know how to fix your problem if you actually understood what government is and how it works. It's not some intangible evil force, it's a system put in place to ensure you have all of your natural rights and a high standard of living, and believe it or not, this government is doing exactly that. Complain about corruption when your cleanest drinking water is a mud puddle; complain about evil when you're hiding under a table on the eve of an annual genocide; complain about oppression when you become indentured against your will. You live in a first world country, your problems are laughable.

-Oil wells on private property are good for the economy
-The people who did that to the natives are long ******* dead, and oil wasn't even an industry back then
-Again, good for the economy
-You know nothing of biochemistry, or of basic chemistry for that matter, don't act like you know something because you found a biased article online or because you became persuaded by a low budget DVD, if those chemicals were poisonous, you would be dead, and so would everyone else
-Facebook and Google don't give information to the government, the give it to ad companies so that ads become personalized to the user and the website can make more money
-The last one may not be the best way to handle the issue, but it is an attempt to keep you alive, not to make your life miserable

Now, I'll admit, some things that are happening are unconstitutional, but I bet you haven't even read the constitution, or know what the words mean, or understand why these things are unconstitutional. If you are ready to alter or abolish the government that we have, you better know how to build a new one. I bet you think the solution is to rebel, but after we have shot all the politicians, what are you going to build on the rubble?

You're making assumptions based on nothing. You don't know who I am or what I study. I didn't read a few biased articles on the internet, I spent 3 months researching the subject of food additives that are legalized in the US and wrote my final on it. I cited research papers from universities and research institutions.

Now, I'm not familiar with your education so I'm not going to assume your don't know what is best for the economy, but you're missing my point. Regardless of whether or not oil is good for the economy, it doesn't give the government the right to violate the freedoms of Americans in order to make a profit. The government has no business in business and should not get involved with corporate America.

I'm not suggesting that we rebel violently as you once again presume, I'm suggesting that the government should be made smaller and issues should be dealt with by the private sector, saving millions of Americans tax dollars. That is simply how I, along with the growing population of Libertarians in this wonderful country think. We choose not to buy into the "Republicrat" way of stealing freedoms in exchange for money and power. We share the same ideals as the founding fathers of this country and I truly think that more should do the same if they would like to see REAL change as our current politician so eloquently proposed.

I could probably find papers and studies from universities and research institutions that say the exact opposite of what you're saying. You're practically saying, "I know these things are poisonous because studies that agree with my opinion say so."

Government getting involved in business is the only way an economy can stand. Government doesn't make the profit from building oil wells, they make profit from taxes, if a government company is building oil wells anywhere, it's to stimulate the oil industry. If some corporation is using power given to it by the government to intrude on someone's property and take their oil, that's not the government's fault. The government isn't a single animal that is conscious of everything that transpires withing US borders, if someone's abusing their rights, it's because **** like that will always happen.

The articles of confederation did what you finally suggest. It was the guidelines of the government that came before the several-centennial one we still have today and the reason we don't have it now is because it didn't work. Mainly because federal government didn't have the sufficient authority to tax and therefore had no funding to do anything. The government isn't a system there to get rich off of you, if you believe that, you should turn your studies to political science. Government is an organization comprised of millions of intelligent individuals who don't get rich off of oil, but are payed sometimes modestly by taxes, and in return, they work day to day to figure out how to fix all of the problems you face, no matter how petty or profound.

Bad things can happen, and they are happening, but it's not as bad as you're making it out.

"I know these things are SAFE because studies that agree with my opinion say so."
That's exactly what the large food corporations are saying yet you'd rather argue against me.

Fun fact: The former vice president of Monsanto (a company responsible for genetically modifying food to withstand unsafe amounts of pesticides) is now the head of the FDA

Fun fact: Supreme court justice, Clarence Thomas, was the chief attorney in representing Monsanto

Hillary Clinton is on the board of directors of Monsanto

These are just a few examples of how the government is run by the wrong people. They may not be cruel people with cruel intentions, but they are after one thing and one thing only, power. Why else would politicians accept donations from these large corporations to fund their presidential campaigns?

You want to talk about modest payment?
Senators and congressmen are making six digits while teachers; the individuals tasked with moulding the minds of our nation's youth are payed a median of $40,000/yr- if that.

Sure, things may not seem too bad, but stop pretending it isn't.

Can you scientifically explain to me what HFCS is and why it's bad? Because I can tell you with much confidence from a chemical point of view and I don't see any reason why it's bad. As for the other ones, enlighten me, but do so objectively. Use what you learned from your cited articles to inform, not persuade, me on what those chemicals are. Don't give me statistics, don't give me appeals, tell me what they are, not what you think they do.

The government is not run by a single person, or by a group of people. If it was, their plan would have reached fruition about the time electricity started running in every space between the shining seas. Even the president is switched out periodically, so no, the government is not being run by the wrong people, it is a mass of people, all with personal lives and views. Some of the people are bad, some are good. You can't change that, that's life. But the bad that happens is just as disorganized as the good. There is no certain maleficent trajectory of the government, and their is no certain beneficent trajectory, and that is because the government is not coherently run on an agenda. Sure there is an agenda that the president has, but that agenda changes every four or so years. You think Hillary just has all the power? She's using her profound power to feed you radioactive material or whatever? No, she's just one of the people who comprise the government, and I guarantee you there are more people who are good than bad who work for the government.

And yeah, I'll talk to you about modest payment, teachers are a part of the ******* government. They are payed with taxes; government money. The same money that the senators and congressman are payed with. Policemen are a part of government. Librarians can even be a part of government. Government is all around you, from the garbage men to the president, every job exists because it raises the standard of living for this country, and sometimes assholes make their way in.

HFCS is high fructose corn syrup. It's bad not only because studies show that it leads to diabetes, but because it's used as an alternative to sugar here in the US. Why are we using it instead of natural sugar? Well because our wonderful GOVERNMENT put import tariffs on sugarcane. Also, our wonderful government gives our hard-earned tax dollars to large agribusiness corporations to grow lots of corn.
The government is making it harder for small farmers to start a business growing whatever the hell they want to grow. Again, they involve themselves in business purely for profit.

Here's a link to the paper I wrote. I did my best to keep it objective however my biased opinion does come out in the end. You need to login to view this link

Look, I'm not an anarchist, and I don't hate this country. I just think that we are behind when it comes to freedoms that we had long before our time. America is no longer the greatest country in the world, in fact I believe New Zealand is ranked highest in freedom at the moment. I love this country which is why I'm passionate about this subject. I strive to be as much like our founding fathers as possible, and if that makes me a hard-assed conservative then so be it. If we just acknowledge that our government isn't perfect and that it needs improvement, then it's a step forward to a better way of life of all Americans.

I'm pretty much done with this discussion. You've made many valid points but overall I cannot agree with your defense of our government. Thanks for taking a stance though, not many people involve themselves with these matters and that's a problem.

Now it's the weekend and I'm going to drink until I can't feel my legs because this is America and I have the freedom to do so!

I'm just going to say here that every type of sugar can cause diabetes, and the type of sugar that comes from apples and oranges is chemically identical to the type that comes from corn. It's called fructose, or fruit sugar, and it is one of the two types sugars that make up sucrose, the type of sugar that comes from sugar cane. The reason why the government discourages import of sugar cane is probably because it's stupid to pay for it when you have entire states dedicated to growing an alternative. Drive through Iowa or Nebraska, and you'll see what I mean. HFCS is cheap, that's why we stopped using cane sugar. It's not like it's illegal to use cane sugar, if you want to waste your money on ordering it, go right ahead. If you don't want to get diabetes, don't blame it on fructose, just stop eating so much sugar. Even if it was cane sugar in soda and candy and in all the other crazy places that sugar probably doesn't belong, it would still give you diabetes.

Although you made a few decent points, most of what you said was ******* retarded.

Maybe protesters and political critics should go to law school and actually try to make a difference instead of acting like anarchy is better than the first world country that we have now.

If there was a revolution and this political cartoonist, or any political cartoonist, or any of you people who think you know anything about government, suddenly were thrust into a position of power you would do an even worse job and create something far worse than what we have today. The government makes mistakes, it's not easy. Your life isn't going to be perfect. You don't live during the great depression, you wear clothes and have a house, and the problems of today will be fixed, because these "assholes" that apparently get paid to mess with you are actually struggling every day to figure out how they can make things better. Quit being children.

It depends of the country. People at top of political parties where I live are there since times of socialism. Whenever there were major changes in the ruling party they shifted positions. Left, right, it doesn't matter. They are always there. Since private sector is in knock down, job in government company gives big benefits in terms of salary, job stability bonuses for all sorts of things. And way to get there is to be a remarkable professional or a member of party from ruling coalition.
It very difficult to get out from such a corrupted system where nepotism flourishes. Especially when voting pool is just a big, hysterical, disoriented mass. Before you get to a position to make a difference, you become one of them.
I don't know about others, but this comic shows relations between people and government in Eastern Europe. When camarilla starts making decisions and shaping your future, you're ******.

Try a smaller image, so the magnifying glass doesn't immediately give it away.

You are asking a bunch of 12 year olds on things they obviously don't know about, as lasmamoe has clearly indicated.
