How does one educate for success? 

Good morning, Netizens... Despite having attended several universities and colleges, I have never particularly been a strong advocate of traditional education as taught in our public schools today. Instead of today's students being encouraged and aided to learn at their own levels and speed, our...

The downslide of the middle class?

Good evening, Netizens... Here is another David Horsey cartoon that probably hits the mark for most people reading it. In addition to teachers and blue collar jobs, we can add newspaper journalists, since their numbers have been steadily dropping for several years. Although I do...

What goes over the side? 

Good morning, Netizens... David Horsey's cartoon is perhaps a bit off-center here, but it does ask a perfectly-valid question: if such a thing is actually taking place, where the wealthy are getting huge tax cuts while the unemployed benefits are being cut, what does it...

Oil alternatives...

Good morning, Netizens... Cartoonist David Horsey takes his shot at the billions of gallons of petroleum that modern society uses each day, and although he has only scraped the surface of the problem, he makes his point. If you look closely at the caricature you...

SEC to save the day...

Good morning, Netizens... In this morning's cartoon, the Seattle-PI's David Horsey contributes a humorous glance at Goldman-Sachs' current situation, with the SEC finally throwing a bit of light into the dark corner from whence Goldman helped destroy America's economy. Of course the politics of the...

David Horsey,davidhorsey.com,seattlepi.com--Ahmadinejad at the fence...

At the fence wanting in?

Good morning, Netizens... The nutcase at the fence While it appears cartoonist David Horsey hit the nail on the head on this caricature of Iran's Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, much the same could be said for an entire cadre of shadowy terrorist organizations around the world, each...

Calling on the Democrats... 17 

Good evening, Netizens... Cartoonist David Horsey calls it “The brave new voice of patriotism”, but I suspect he has his tongue firmly glued to the deepest corners of his cheek when he wrote that line. In my opinion, this guy making the phone calls to...

Another view of Democracy... 

Good morning, Netizens... Ah, Democracy, at least as practiced by the American people. Cartoonist David Horsey gives us an irreverent glimpse of Democracy as viewed by the people of Afghanistan, perhaps one that we cannot admit to ourselves. All we have to do is watch...

David Horsey,davidhorsey.com,seattlepi.com David Horsey speaks on Sarah Palin

The Tea Baggers daydream... 

Good morning, Netizens... Somehow in the vibrant corners of my mind, where all kinds of imponderable things rise to the surface, I just knew David Horsey would eventually get around to the issue of Sarah Palin and her book tour again. It isn't that he...

David Horsey's history of religion

Horsey speaks on religion... 

Good morning, Netizens... I don't know why David Horsey chose today, Black Friday, of all days to write about a history of religion, but so be it. It is a hot enough button, and it is done well enough that it should inspire either some...

The ballots are counted -- sort of... 21 

Good morning, Netizens... As David Horsey points out, President Barack Obama may have an earful after the ballots are counted. Or maybe not, depending upon how much political joss can be derived by either the Democrats or the Republicans who successfully ran for election back...

It all depends... 

Good morning, Netizens... Let us approach the issue of Boeing opening its newest plant in South Carolina with delicacy, shall we? That isn't to say that cartoonist David Horsey has done so with today's cartoon, not hardly at all. A poet once observed that a...

Debt, starvation and taxes... 

Good morning, Netizens... Ah, the federal debt. David Horsey shows a lifelike rendition of what it must feel like to be our ostensible founder and guardian, Uncle Sam, sitting beneath the incredible weight of our national debt. He makes a point of bringing former President...

The bane of the government class... 

Good morning, Netizens...How utterly accurate David Horsey's cartoon this morning is! The unanswered question that remains, like a crusty old penny on the tip of ones fingers is, how much money is actually passing between lobbyists and the government that got elected promising to end...

How to avoid the pitfalls next time... 

Good morning, Netizens...This morning David Horsey explains for those who haven't figured it out yet how we'll avoid future economic cataclysms. Yes, come to think of it, it might work. That is providing we get out of the current mess the economy left us in...

The question of Obama's citizenship...

Good morning, Netizens... I am certain few would argue with me when I say our country has a diversity of opinion nearly unequalled anywhere in the World. That is probably because we are a sum of the mixing pot, that undefined melange of races, creeds...

The Ventriloquist... 

Good morning, Netizens...David Horsey's cartoon this morning certainly speaks the truth when he portrays Vladamir Putin as a ventriloquist of a sideshow on the walkway of world politics. Being a former KGB man in the Kremlin, and apparently quite good at it, Putin only shows...

The male's duty?

The Obama Magic Show... 

Good morning, Netizens... In this morning's David Horsey cartoon we have the famous Obama Magic Show, featuring adulations by the Democrats and starring Humpty Dumpty as The Republican Party. The real question remains to be seen whether the Republican Party will be able to put...

Aye, Mateys! 15 

Good morning, Netizens... While we're busily flagellating the leadership of our local law enforcement for perceived errors if not bad intentions, today's David Horsey cartoon gives us yet another target for our angst: AIG. The inner machinations of credit default swaps, derivatives and other exotic...

Farewell to the Seattle PI... 

Good morning, Netizens... To perhaps better understand David Horsey's cartoon this morning, you would have to have stood before the building which, until today, housed the Seattle Post-Intelligencer newspaper, for today is its last day of publishing a printed paper. Atop the building, set up...

Is Obama's tax plan tax warfare? 

Good morning, Netizens...Is the Obama tax plan really class warfare? Or is it, as some have suggested, merely an adjustment from the Bush era back toward the middle of the road? Can it save our ecxonomy or will it lead us to worse conditions than...

Vetting another cabinet member... 

Good morning, Netizens... Could it be possible, based upon David Horsey's cartoon this morning, whether President Obama is getting a violent rash each time he seeks to appoint someone to his cabinet? After all, how many cabinet appointees has it been that have run afoul...

One way to fix the economy...

Good morning, Netizens... As David Horsey's political cartoon opines this morning, we have some alternatives when it comes to our national economy falling into the toilet tank. Despite the fact that the sale of alcoholic beverages dropped recently, fear not O gentle spirits! For you...

Is the Inauguration already over?  

Good morning, Netizens... My goodness, according to David Horsey's cartoon this morning, they haven't finished cleaning up the mess from the Obama Inauguration yet and now some members of our Congress are already warming up their election campaigns? Wait a minute! They haven't even torn...
