Cartoon sails in wrong direction

March 14, 2013

Regarding the comic published in the Student Voice depicting the ship and sailboat (March 8). The portrayal is ludicrous.

The use of a sailboat  implies that the rich possess very little power in front of the government.

The rich back the elections for the officials, fund lobbying campaigns and Super PACs, and benefit from massive subsidies that they then vocally oppose to be offered to other causes or social classes.

The illustrator, as well as the person who green-lighted the cartoon, are bonkers if they believe their political cartoon is truth.
