The United States Is Burning

by Robert Quick

Putin Wants It Burned So “Burn Baby Burn!”

Protesting and violence has been going on in the country since the murder of George Floyd at the hands of police in Minneapolis. Since way before the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr African Americans have been violently oppressed by a double standard justice system in this country…One for privileged rich white and one for people of color and poverty. Today we have a white national racist cowering behind the protection of the Office of the Presidency. His infantile tweets and overall disregard for the people’s welfare has brought us to this point. He has successfully removed hope from a struggling sector of our society and when there is no longer any hope they truly have nothing to lose.

AND HERE WE ARE!

I couldn’t agree more or said it any better.

StarvingCartoonist is a former ICU nurse that has worked at numerous civilian, military, and veteran Intensive Care Units across the country for better than three decades but has been sketching, drawing, and cartooning since he first picked up a crayon in kindergarten. Dabbled with political cartooning, writing, and general illustrations but the bread and butter came from health care. Recently left professional nursing to concentrate on camping, hiking, nature, the outdoors, trees, trails, and peace of mind. Love a campfire; rather watch it than TV. Avoid bureaucracy, career ladders, ladder climbers, and hero worship at all cost. Evenings spent with a good book, reading until the book smacks my nose when I doze off. Generally up at sun rise, listen to the mourning doves, put the coffee on, and play it by ear the rest of the day.
