The Prisoner’s Welcome

March 21, 2010

No need to beat an issue to death, but this one was too good to leave with only one cartoon.  Again, prisoners who love prison.  Who would’ve thought?

The Freedom Walk

March 21, 2010

Who would have ever thought that an inmate would long to go to prison someday?  Or at least an inmate who is in county jail?  Yep, you heard me right ladies and gentlemen.  Prisoners would prefer prison over county jail because prison, believe it or not, is better.  In county jail, a prisoner gets nothing, but in prison . . . whoa nelly!  They have access to an exercise yard, a choice of a workshop, or vocational training.  ( Need to know how to talk to other convicted felons, am I right?)   I guess crime does pay.

The Gifts

March 21, 2010

 

This cartoon was promoting the Salvation Army and their message of giving, but this one held another meaning as well.  It was also promoting the Salvation Army’s program of sending gifts to those brave men and women in our Armed Forces fighting overseas and risking their lives for their country.  I know what your thinking: Why in the world is he posting this cartoon now?  Three months after Christmas?  Well, you know what they say . . . . better late than never.  🙂 ( I didn’t draw the happy face.)

The Trees

March 4, 2010

I’ve done a cartoon on this issue before . . . . tree trimming, but alas, it is still an issue.  A while ago, some tree trimming was done on Richwoods Boulevard in Peoria, which I might add, is located in a rather nice neighborhood, lined with the upper Middle class homes of doctors, businessman, etc.  9-5 families where their children can play out on the front lawn after dark.  Anyways, these tree trimmers sort of massacred the trees and diminished the view that people had of this boulevard.  As a result, there was an outcry from many residents over how the tree trimming had been carried out.  I love nature.  Not to mention, I love giving it a sense of humor.

The New Year

January 26, 2010

It’s too early to see what kind of year 2010 is going to be, but everyone has their fingers crossed.

The Extra Hand

January 26, 2010

With all of the hype that has been going on with healthcare and the Democrats trying to push it through the Senate, President Obama upped the ante when he met with Senior Democrats and said he was going to help push this bill through.  This cartoon came to mind when I read this.

Then and Now

January 26, 2010

 

                              Things sure have changed.

Let’s Hope Not

January 26, 2010

With the recession this year, people at the Salvation Army were hoping that a scene like this wouldn’t happen.  Sure, something is better than nothing, but during the holidays, one cent ain’t gonna cut it.

The Turkey

December 13, 2009

Thanksgiving is a time for family and friends to be thankful for the love, joy, and things they value most in life.  Imagine how a turkey feels on Thanksgiving, or to what lengths he would go to keep from being the guest of honor.

The Flu Hype

November 30, 2009

 

The talk of H1N1, as well as the new cases springing up every week has got people thinking: is it something that is hyped up by the media, or is it an illness that should be taken as seriously as smallpox, pneumonia, or the common flu?  Many people around here feel it is the latter.  It is a disease that should be considered seriously by anyone who is more likely to get it, ranging from children to the elderly, and they should take the proper steps to keep from getting it, such as the vaccinations that are being provided by clinics throughout the country.  This cartoon brings light to the issue, by addressing it as a serious one.
