If Only We'd Listened

This cartoon was produced by Harding College (now Harding University) in Searcy, Arkansas in 1948.  Ask yourself whether the evils warned against 66 years ago in this cartoon have not now come to pass.

We can't say we weren't warned.  If only we'd listened.

How's that snake oil tasting, Obamatons?


  1. Love the cartoon and I cannot tell you the last time I watched a cartoon. Great. I have friends in the Midwest who left farming, left heritage farms, as they got sick of the government telling them when, where, what and how to plant. Most city-folk do not know that the great majority of farms are now corporation farms owned by companies in China, Russian, Japan, and the family farm is almost extinct.

    My favorite part was the "blushing capitalists". Hmmm. I shall pass this on...

  2. This is a terrific cartoon. You should pass it on! We sure were warned...
