  1. Well done.

  2. Over the decades (centuries?), the federal government has grown into a spin monster...that never sleeps,

    that never stops eating,

    that never stop growing,

    that never presents any permanent solutions.

    As usual, Mike Smith captures the essence of the federal level.

    We have a federal government that pretends to be sleeping bear, when there is an issue to be addressed,

    real work to be done,

    firm, workable solutions to be presented.

    But the only clarity being presented lately is by journalist, mentor-in-disguise, hunter visual cartoonist...Mike Smith.

    I'm listening with my eyes, Mike. Keep talking.

  3. Oh Architect, you hit the nail so square on the head! Thank Goodness for Mike! Without the clarity of his addressing this issue and all others, we'd be lost! Umm, wait a minute, after rereading the panels, I see yet NO solutions offered again, just a mistake. The sleeping bear doesn't look like Obama or Holder.

  4. Dinodb,

    Maybe the guy in the fed chair is a ghost...

    a representation of leaders past, who pushed us down this narrowing road. Only Mike knows for sure.

    What is disturbing me (on all levels) is the lack of a future agenda.

    Commerce has been shredding the fabric of life for centuries.

    Technology and boneheads have merely stepped up the pace to extinction.

    But I diverge.

    Again...what's the plan?

  5. Brilliant!!
