If you mean revealing yourself for what you really are, yes.

Always nice to have you drop in, redfaced and spluttering, and beating those tiny little fists. So sweet.

BAHAHAHAHAHAH

frickin' nice one....
I know exactly what you mean. Let me tell you why you’re here. You’re here because you know something. What you know you can’t explain, but you feel it. You’ve felt it your entire life, that there’s something wrong with the world.
You don’t know what it is but its there, like a splinter in your mind

Long-time Iowa farm cartoonist fired after creating this cartoon
« Reply #852 on: April 30, 2017, 11:41:51 AM »


Rick Friday has been giving farmers a voice and a laugh every Friday for two decades through his cartoons in Farm News.   
Now the long-time Iowa farm cartoonist tells KCCI that he has been fired.
Friday announced Sunday that his job was over after 21 years in a Facebook post that has since gone viral.
FACEBOOK POST:
"Again, I fall hard in the best interest of large corporations. I am no longer the Editorial Cartoonist for Farm News due to the attached cartoon which was published yesterday. Apparently a large company affiliated with one of the corporations mentioned in the cartoon was insulted and cancelled their advertisement with the paper, thus, resulting in the reprimand of my editor and cancellation of its Friday cartoons after 21 years of service and over 1,090 published cartoons to over 24,000 households per week in 33 counties of Iowa.
"I did my research and only submitted the facts in my cartoon.
"That's okay, hopefully my children and my grandchildren will see that this last cartoon published by Farm News out of Fort Dodge, Iowa, will shine light on how fragile our rights to free speech and free press really are in the county."
THE CARTOON:
The cartoon features two farmers talking about farming profits. (view cartoon)
The first says, "I wish there was more profit in farming."
The second farm answers, "There is. In year 2015 the CEOs of Monsanto, DuPont Pioneer and John Deere combined made more money than 2,129 Iowa farmers.
Friday received an email from his editor at Farm New cutting off their relationship a day after the cartoon was published.
Friday’s editor said a seed dealer pulled their advertisements with Farm News as a result of the cartoon, and others working at the paper disagreed with the jokes made about the agriculture corporations.
“When it comes to altering someone’s opinion or someone’s voice for the purpose of wealth, I have a problem with that,” said Friday. “It’s our constitutional right to free speech and our constitutional right to free press.”

The way it works in this country.....and everywhere else, as best I can tell. We are ruled by evil greedy men who gladly poison their own grandchildren in order to accumulate money they don't even need, and in fact will never spend. Something is amiss with this business model.

Yep. Something is VERY amiss when Human Dignity is not considered Capital. That something will destroy absolutely everything good that humanity has ever accomplished if it is not somehow properly demonized and banished forever from human society.


I would add to AZ's very accurate graphic the following message to the "Greed is Good" Trump and vampire parasite friends:

Leges         Sine    Moribus      Vanae   
Faith,
if it has not works, is dead, being alone.
