Michael Ramirez Political Cartoon Straw Man FAIL
There are so many things wrong with this cartoon I don’t know where to begin.
Who are the people to whom Hugh Laurie and Kim Kardashian (I assume that is who’s being portrayed on the left) are “heroes”? Certainly not to the “Occupy Wall Street” activists.
The people on the right: the “real doctor”: who is making a “villain” out of doctors? Most doctors do not “employ lots of people.” They maintain a practice with other doctors and employ receptionists, nurses, technicians, but private physicians are not known for employing whole bunches of people. I don’t even know why a doctor is being pictured here as no one is “vilifying” the medical profession.
The old lady “Wall Street Executive” “employs lots of people”? Uh, no. These people do not “create jobs.” Many of their investments are acquisitions and mergers that FIRE A WHOLE BUNCH OF PEOPLE and then send the remaining jobs overseas and pocket the difference.
“Employs lots of people” my ass.
