2. The line "this was illegal, but they didn't care" - apparently nobody cared much,

else there would have been investigations and jailing, no? Or just excuses...

"... You let yourselves be deprived before your own eyes of the best part of your revenues; your fields are plundered, your homes robbed, your family heirlooms taken away. You live in such a way that you cannot claim a single thing as your own; and it would seem that you consider yourselves lucky to be loaned your property, your families, and your very lives. All this havoc, this misfortune, this ruin, descends upon you not from alien foes, but from the one enemy whom you yourselves render as powerful as he is, for whom you go bravely to war, for whose greatness you do not refuse to offer your own bodies unto death. ...

From all these indignities, such as the very beasts of the field would not endure, you can deliver yourselves if you try, not by taking action, but merely by willing to be free. Resolve to serve no more, and you are at once freed. I do not ask that you place hands upon the tyrant to topple him over, but simply that you support him no longer; then you will behold him, like a great Colossus whose pedestal has been pulled away, fall of his own weight and break into pieces ..."

Here.

Still, a great cartoon - thank you for posting.

5. Fixed.

I linked it to another youtube member's post.


Don't know what that "Private" was all about. :/

Thanks for helping me keep this up to date.

6. Fixed.

Thanks B&R.

It may have had something to do with it being linked via the California Federation of Teachers website or somesuch.

It'll work for awhile now.
