Dr. Seuss on Uncertain Times and Economic Unrest

Not unlike many other people I have spent copious amounts of time reading news stories about the economy and what is going on within the U.S. and around the world. If you take the stories at face value then you wind up with a very negative impression of the general state of affairs.

It is not unreasonable to say that these stories are not just sad but depressing. Doom and gloom are what we are being fed.

So I do what I normally do and I cruise through the blogosphere to see what other parties have to say about this. What do bloggers of all political bents think about the reports that are coming from the MSM and what do they think about things in general.

As I tooled on through I remembered a post I had done about Dr. Seuss and his positions on war and politics. And so I decided to go take a look again at the online catalog of his political cartoons.

So many of them are still applicable today. Here are some that caught my eye.

If you have never seen his work I urge you to spend some time sifting through it.

I love Dr. Seuss. Spent the last part of his life in San Diego. The UC San Diego library is named for him.


I would not like them in a box.
I would not like them with a fox.

I do not like them Sam I am,
I do not those Arabs, my man.

Now, please go answer that I email I sent you this morning {my time}.
