As far a politics go, I lean a bit to the right. Many of my friends lean a bit to the left. Some of them to the far left. I love the political banter and debating among friends.
But no matter what side you’re on, sometimes you just have to throw up your hands and say, “It’s all a scam!”
Take ethanol for example. We give the ethanol industry billions of dollars in subsidies. It is less efficient than gasoline, costs more to transport, drives up the prices on food and does not reduce pollution. Here’s a thought – if you are growing food – EAT IT! But Iowa is a big ethanol state and that’s where the election starts, so all the guys and gals running for president support it. What a surprise.
And how about the War on Drugs? Why don’t we just call it the National Endowment for the International Drug Cartels. We’ve turned illegal drug trade into a hugely profitable – and deadly – industry. Didn’t we learn anything from Prohibition?
I could go on – and you could too. Everyone has their own pet peeves.
So maybe I was a little bit angry when I created this t-shirt design. (Possibly channeling Ralph Steadman? Not sure.) All I know is that – Left, Right or Center – here is a sentiment we can all agree on.
