    The more things change the more they stay the same.

    Note that Uncle Sam was drawn on the GOP side ... interesting in that perhaps that also applies today.

    4 years before the 16th amendment was passed. Class warfare used to screw the little guy with the Personal Income Tax.

    Yah, don't think the word "Christendom" is coincidental.

    No...it was actually factual backt then. over 90% of this nation was Christian back then. So although we weren't a Christian nation, for Americans to think/believe we were is just natural.

    The early 1900's was the peak of Christiandom...it is now declining relative to other religions & atheism.

    I think PFinV is referring to the anti-Semitic undertones of that particular 'toon. (The Rotschilds being a prominent and successful Jewish family).

    Yeah, thanks B5. It's about like the later Nazi propaganda cartoons. In the early part of the century -- the era when this particular cartoon came from -- such attitudes were considered "okay" and part and parcel of mainstream "discourse."

    The hysterical shouting syntax of the caption reminds me of some of our locals here, btw -- though that is a stylistic point.
