January 2, 2013

Truly enormous sums of money are wasted by the federal government. Merely lessening the amount flushed down the toilet that is Washington, D.C., would help ease the nation’s deficit spending problem....

Dear Trib Editors. Did you even 'google' anything about this story or the LLC that runs the place?

How about the 90? billion in corporate welfare out of Washington each year, the 10? billion in foriegn aid to countries that treat us like crap. Can we look at real issues instead of just what your so called conservative moronic agenda wants us to be guided to. I'm an independent voter, but can see propaganda when it is presented.

Hey aeneid!

I bet Rick M. has a draft of that very scene, or one a lot like it, tucked away for his collected cartoons when he finally leaves the Trib.

What are the odds?

I mean, he certainly has some characters to work with.

I'd really like to see his caricatures of Frank and Chuck!

Okay editorial staff you made me do this so here it comes....

Tribune Editorial Staff: The Play


Guy Coviello: Let's do a piece about the need to cut spending!

Frank Robinson: Yeah! We haven't done that since.... well, every other day I guess.

Charles Jarvis: Let's do one anyway and pretend that it's about "controlling costs."

Guy Coviello: Sounds good. Let's pick EVERYTHING as a target!

Len Blose: What do I even do again?

Guy Coviello: Why can't everyone be as self-reliant as us Tribune Chronicle editors? We're not publicly funded!


All: Yes, master!

"In the private sector, someone, perhaps several people, would have been fired."

What a total crock!

The idea that failure in the private sector is REWARDED has been well-documented since the crash of late '08. Where the heck have you guys been?

A glaring example? Try the the AIG bailout, which cost some $182 billion — enough to employ more than 12 million minimum wage workers for a full year.

And bonuses were paid!

Where's the outrage?

Yes, the two biggest government waste programs in the last 10 years were the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan created by George Bush that went unpaid for, or we would not be in the economic mess we are now.
