My Big, Fat Greek Collapse Cartoons

Will Greece remain in the Euro?

It’s a debate that’s flummoxing all of Europe at the moment. Leaders of the G8 industrialized nations agreed over the weekend that Greece should remain a member of the European Union, yet many, like Hungary’s finance minister, say openly that the only way forward is for Greece to leave the Euro.

Here’s my new cartoon about the craziness in Greece, featuring a Greek statue throwing a Euro coin at German Chancellor Angela Merkel…

Whenever anyone in the U.S. thinks of Greece, century-old temples and marble statues are often the first things that come to mind. Using these visual images makes it easier to express the dire situation Greece faces without getting into the weeds of numbers and details…

Of course, all the statues have to be armless. It’s like drawing a cheating politician in his underwear – white boxers with red hearts should always be revealed when their pants drop to the ground…

We have a small business (6 full time employees & 3 part-time)). We work 6.5 – 7 days a week; never less than 60 hours. I have no sympathy for anyone who works less than 40 hours. I am tired of paying taxes that will be mostly wasted on entitlements, corruption, foreign aid, etc. To hell with the rest of the world, let's take care of America first.

I am with you EASTTEXASREDNECK! Entitlements may A$$- nobody owes you anything- to quote Rocky in Rocky III- "you owe yourself!" Cut the world off from our money/generosity and they will see what it is like. I bust my tail to teach/coach and work a 3rd job in the summer just so I can provide extra for my family (not complaining about working) and then the government comes in and takes from me to give to those who either won't get of the butt or have decided that somebody owes them something.
Let hard working TAX PAYERS decide what to do with their money and who they will spend it on and let us see who comes out the better for it. I know somebody is going to say that "democracy determined how our money was going to be spent when the candidates who got elected were put in office, that is your decision being made!" No, my money and every other hard working/tax payer should have more say so instead of the corrupt political process- that includes RIGHT and LEFT sides of the political spectrum!
