The Elephant and The Donkey

posted on 3rd of october, 2013

Most of you are probably aware of the iconic images used for America's predominant political parties.

The Republican Elephant
The Democratic Donkey

Using these two mascots together can turn any topic into a political discussion.

What you may not be aware of - I wasn't at first -
is that these icons are trademarked.
Images using them must always be considered Editorial in nature.

The nice thing about political images is that
you aren't limited to election years for relevant usage.

There is alway some issue or disagreement
brewing where both parties can be counted on
to resort to their usual mudslinging.

The news of the day, of course, is the face off over Obamacare -
or The Affordable Care Act as it's also known.

In true bi-partisan fashion
Congress has shut down the government
instead of working out the very issues they were elected to fix

Up next is the debate over the debt ceiling
Which is promising to be even more contentious

The two things we can be sure of
in this country are
death and taxes ......

oh, and the chance to elect new members of congress every two years.

In the mean time
I guess it's back to business as usual in our Nations Capitol

Looks like crisis averted in true DC style, kicking the can down the road.
   Congressional Spending   

Oh well, we can count on continued budget, debt and deficit talk

At least through the holidays!
