Nothing frustrates me more than to see so many cartoons in a short period of time all about the same issue. It makes me want to throw down the newspaper, or angrily turn off the computer, as the case may be.
Sure, maybe this cartoon could be considered humorous- a little bit contrived, maybe, but worth a chuckle. But coming right after another tax levy cartoon, it's redundant and obnoxious.
Get some new material.

maybe its not the newspaper, maybe the city needs to change; as far as I can tell, the flying pigs and the flying cockroaches aren't going anywhere soon either!!
(unfortunately, the same is true of Bushian politics, or the lack thereof; when will we EVER hear that tune change? hopefully in my great grandkis' lives...!!!!!!)

we could institute a fat tax for everyone driving over bridges and flying in airplanes (to start..) we could do it in malls later (so many malls$$$!!)

well, we could do like the churches and charge money for attendance and for not forgiving sins and for building funds and seminars and for every damn thing(it aint the Catholics who are the only ones who do that) so people have to keep coming back to that church forever; it's been working for 2000 years!, ever since the day Jesus died on the cross for our sins! (there's always the problem of snow days, holidays and vacations, tho)

if we really want to indoctrinate the us kids with american culture, we need to teach them economics, just how to raise money for schools, but 1. that all the money this administration has thrown away will never be retrieved 2. that all the debt that this administration incurred will be paid by them, the kids 3. how to pay for a 100-200K college education for more of the same!

3:51; Are you the mayor of simpleton, or merely a court jester ?

Mao and the People's republic created the "greed" for freedom.

Saddam manifested Iraqi "diplomacy" (ask any Kurd fortunate enough not to have been gassed.)

Jingoistic taunts at our south of the border neighbors cannot obscure real progress since NAFTA.

the only thing we need to teach kids (besides ethics, if we can) is the difference between debit and credit, and who's responsible for it (they can take the advanced courses of how to rob the poor to pay the rich later)

since we espouse China's manufacuring policies and information espionage, maybe we should also espouse their socialism and pay for all kids education in this country

maybe we should just send our kids to schools in China, to learn engineering and manufacturing and economics

probably the best way to dgo would be to have kids learn on-line and then we could get rid of the teachers;

Bank of America raises ATM surcharge
September 13, 2007

Sign up for: Globe Headlines e-mail | Breaking News Alerts The Charlotte-based bank, which has more than 17,000 ATMs, made the change in most markets in July and August, spokeswoman Betty Riess said.

Bank of America has the largest ATM network in the United States and the higher fees could affect millions of consumers.

But Riess said, "The fee itself and the amount are disclosed on the ATMs, so (customers) can opt out and cancel their transaction."

"We really want to make our ATM network convenient for our customers," Riess said. "In order to maintain that, it is appropriate to charge people who aren't our customers for accessing our convenience."

The higher fees are mostly at machines in financial centers and in grocery stores, where most of the users are bank customers, Riess said. Roughly 10,700 ATMs -- nearly two-thirds of the bank's network -- are affected.

The bank is not making the change at 6,300 offsite ATMs in shopping malls, airports, universities and other locations, she said.

However, ATMs in the Chicago-area, where Bank of America is acquiring LaSalle Bank Corp., are not affected.

Every adult in America should teach voluntarily for a year in an american public high school; does anybody know what the constitution really says?

what's the point of schools anyway when parents teach their kids to cheat others on the job for money, and when adults teach kids right out of college the same fraudulant business practices?

one message is clear: (good) teachers will be leaving Ohio and going out of state to find jobs if they have to dish out $5-10K every four years and keep taking classes for the rest of their lives at their own expense to renew certificates; how can THAT be HELPING teachers' salaries? WHO thought of that one? must have had some bad nuns for teachers...

 
at 9/20/07, 6:16 PM Anonymous Anonymous said...

might as well teach in China and demand higher salaries for what is being taught and avoid the middle man, ie, corporate america, who claims rights (steals) to all employees' ideas/patents and then gives them to China; there's a potential teaching racket here...!

how does forcing teachers to pay for their own education courses after they have a master's degree in order to renew their certificates every four years ad infinitum help anyone? The educational system is the only system in the world that requires the employees to pay for their own education, even student teachers. It doesn't make any sense, especially if the courses are useless and worthless - how is this helping anyone? is it just helping the colleges who get the money? robbing from the poor to pay the rich? none of it makes any sense at all

here's what people fail to understand: if teachers don't pass the kids in school at all levels through the no-kid-left-behind-to-burden-us-rule, they get FIRED, so the job of "teachers" is NOT to teach, but to PASS KIDS; the kids and teachers are rotated in and out of the revolving door, sometimes as many teachers as 5/week being fired; all around the nation
