Health Care

With the mostly right-wing appointed Supreme Court — complete with at least two Tea Party extremist members — bringing their supposedly “open minds” to the issue of Health Care, it seems like a good time to override what I’d planned to do, and instead run a few classic cartoons on this politicized subject.

So enjoy! Or gnash your teeth (before they fall out for lack of dental care)!

Above & below, scanned from their reprinting in the February 1930 issue of Review of Reviews, are two cartoon illustrations from the magazine Survey Graphic (not “Graphic Survey”, as incorrectly attributed). Above, To Be Sick is Expensive, by Gerta Ries; below, To Be Well is Worth Something, by Florence Bauer.

Next, Hard Times, from the October 24th, 1857 issue of The Picayune, during the Panic of 1857.

Click on the above & below cartoons, to enlarge them, and read their captions.

Above, The Abuse of Wealth Which Creates Communists Among Us, from the centerspread of the September 11th, 1878 issue of Puck magazine, by Puck founder, Joseph Keppler, Sr.

Below, another extract from Review of Reviews (this time, from May 1934): A Rose by Any Other Name, by Tom Carlisle, appearing originally in the New York Herald Tribune. (If you’re thinking it looks like the work of Jay Darling, that because Carlisle was Darling’s assistant.)

    “With the mostly right-wing appointed Supreme Court — complete with at least two Tea Party extremist members” Give it a break! You are only humiliating yourself in public. Stick with kid stuff. Stop slopping up your drool cup and performing autofellatio in public.

I.T.C.H is looking forward to your thoughts. Please, no flame. Thanks!
