Old and New

Okay, got to poke fun at the other side of the aisle too...

Original Chinese Proverb:

Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.

New Proverb:

Give a man a welfare check, a cell phone, cash for his clunker, food stamps, section 8 housing, Medicaid, 100 weeks of unemployment checks, a 40-ounce malt liquor, needles, drugs, contraceptives, and designer Air Jordan shoes and
he will vote Democrat for a lifetime.

  1. Well, fair is fair!

    The only good thing I can say about this election is that there are less than 100 days left. srsly.

    Have a YAYful day honey! big hugs xoxo

  2. And politicians say they don't buy your votes...what do they think all of these entitlement programs amount to? Just sayin'.

  3. Vote banks drive the policies of politicians in India. USA doesn't seem to be an exception.
    Have a great day!

  4. Pokin' fun from the Right side of the isle...all's fair in Love and Politics.

    btw...If we [US] had a 'Fair Tax' system...folks with lots-O-cash wouldn't have to take advantage of 'loop-holes'...jus sayin'

    Love the old and new proverb...Sooo much of good humor is wrapped in the truth!

  5. So true! Politicians also look after themselves more than our country. I hate politics!!!

    Big hugs from wet jawjah, honey...

  6. All I can say is that I really do hate politics. It is so sad that our country has come to these two men. Take care.

  7. Buying votes is American as apple pie! Just the way it is. All a good politican has to do is find a legal way to do it.

  8. Hey like the new look. Great toon.

  9. good one! i have one (unemployed) friend who votes democratic and thinks it's the republicans fault she can't find a job. um hmm. gotta love that one!

  10. Funny post. I think this election boils down to this question: Do you think the government is capable of benefiting people or do you think it should just stay out of the way? The answer needs to include both.

  11. Hilarious! Love the picture and the new proverb ... so true! Sad, but true!

  12. Funny but sadly true!
    Janet :)

  13. Our elections are supposed to be about choice, and I'm wondering when we get to make a choice. The two major candidates we have are just two sides of the same coin. It just depends on who you want to loot the treasury; Labor or Management. Some choice.

  14. Yeah, they make they offer and the poor working stiff has to make good on it. Politics, hate em

  15. If we had as much money as the politicians do, we'd be fine.

  16. Haha! That was cute :)
    Love the Chinese proverb, heard that one before.
    Hugs from Ohio,

  17. I think he is getting too much.
    Take away his 40-ouncer and make him drink water like the rest of us.

  18. I can see whey folks will vote Democrat for a lifetime, sure beats working full time!
