A Cartoon With A Message
4 February 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This reminded me of the late '60s when we Left Wing college students would hear all this anti-military propaganda, and just eat it up.

"Defense" was a bad, bad word, so "defense spending" - the topic of this six-minute piece - is bad, too. Apparently, it was still bad to my old Liberal friends when Bill Plympton did this tongue-in-cheek diatribe against Ronald Reagan's administration, which was spending more on defense than his predecessor.

Of course, we know how things turned out in that regard three/four years later.....the opposite of what our foresighted cartoonist was implying here, but, hey, it always sounds like a good message.
