Election Promises And The Games People Play

For some of us, today is a primary election day.  This cartoon was done in honor of the eve of the recent British elections, but it will strike a chord wherever you happen to be voting:

“It’s the eve of our general election and … well, we are terribly excited, we just can’t begin to describe. Democracy is the shit, let me tell you that. Tomorrow, we get to choose which flavour of inept repression we’d most like for the next 5 years. You can have any flavour, as long as it’s “self-serving”.

Most likely, you’ll be voting for someone you don’t give a fig about, just because you don’t want the Tories/Labour/LibDems getting in. Ahh, glorious democracy, how can we celebrate thee? (except for putting an ‘x’ in a box every 5 years)”

These hilarious folks also have a couple of note-worthy  games available for purchase:

War On Terror:  The Boardgame: It’s got suicide bombers, political kidnaps and intercontinental war. It’s got filthy propaganda, rampant paranoia and secret treaties and the Axis of Evil is a spinner in the middle of the board.

It’s got suicide bombers, political kidnaps and intercontinental war. It’s got filthy propaganda, rampant paranoia secret treaties…

You can fight terrorism, you can fund terrorism, you can even be the terrorists. The only thing that matters is global domination – err, liberation.

They also offer a board game called Crunch:

As the CEO of a global bank, it’s your personal responsibility to do whatever it takes to ensure a comfortable retirement.

Call in government bailouts, award yourself inappropriate bonuses and – when no one’s looking – embezzle as much as you can, before it all comes crashing down around you.

(H/t) to Common Dreams for pointing to this cornucopia of attitude.)
