Optimistic in America is when Joe citizen opens his fridge and finds the goodies the TV ads promote as the stuff needed for the good life he believes will come soon.
Reality is that despite lots of promises, hoopla, and new laws things remain pretty well the same or worse than 2008 for many. New elections are around the corner and many can expect very little to better their lot no matter who they decide will help them out of their misery brands or parties matter very little.
The true optimistic people are those that use their God-given abilities and a bit of luck to start some sort of enterprise to ween themselves off government help.
My cartoon is two-fold, provide some humor and make a statement of the circumstances that exist for many people living in America. This is my response to this week’s WP weekly photo challenge “OPTIMISTIC”.
