    1) I believe that the cartoonist’s POV is that first of all doesn’t favor the war; second of all proving a point that not everything is how they make us think. Bush is trying to hide the fact that we do suffer and doesn’t show what is really going on, how many soldiers have to die until they finally get the point.

    2) Yes, I do agree with the cartoon, because we have many soldiers out there and not all but some are getting killed. If they were going to do this then they should of thought of it a little bit better. Just knowing that fathers brother sister and all those people are in risk of dying because of another government and not our own in a way isn’t very satisfying.

    that the link of the cartoon i’m using. :]
    1) What is the cartoonist’s POV? Message?
    the cartoonist;s poin of view its in favor of War because he drew osamma saying i deny the holocaust is a part of the past but them he puts in the other side saying the “future maybe” i think his message is that we shouldn’t trust iran they might try to attact us when we least expect it and now that war is over they will plan to make us pay for all the desasters we have done to their country.
    2) Do you agree? Disagree? Why?
    i do agree with the cartoonist because its true human behavior its like that we always try to do the same thing what other have done to us.

    The cartoonist’s point of view of Chrysler is that their obviously going bankrupt, and they’re selling cars for cheaper due to the economy. Chrysler has been giving away thousands of dollars in incentives to people buying their vehicles. I agree with the cartoonist’s point of view because it sadly seems as if the car company that has been around for so long, is not having to lower their prices due to the economy. Uncle Sam represents the United States, so for him to be selling the cars it must be on government prices.

    My reaction to this video is …wow I don’t even really have a reaction, its like incredible the pressure on us women this video is showing how un perfect a person is and how most ordinary people are not good enough to be up on bill bored. many women look up to these images the media puts up on magazines, they diet and even starve them selves to try and look like someone who truly does not look like that …and not even that the fact that we are not even good enough as we are and how they point out the imperfection. my opinion really is that this is why people self-esteems are at the floor.

    I chose the cartoon “Michael Moore on Capitalism” by Dave Granlund.

    1)What is the cartoonist’s POV? Message?
    The cartoonist is portraying Michael Moore as someone who is after capitalism. He is standing on a sack that reads “film profits”,that is,the money made from his controversial movies targeting politics. His message is telling us that Michael Moore is targeting capitalism as a problem in America, but hes making capitalism for himself with his movies.

    2)Do you agree? Disagree? Why?
    I do agree. He is gaining alot of profits from the movies he makes and that is capitalism.I see what the cartoonist is trying to say.
