The Great Recession Hits South County [OC Weekly Editorial Cartoon]
For this week's Orange Feathers, we turned to acclaimed Fullerton tattoo artist Noemi Barajas to take on welfare, South County, and...Louis Vuton? Take it away, Noemi!
You know what really grinds my gears? Working my ass off and paying for others to be lazy. I guess you may be the one reading this and laughing at me. Well, after all it is America- the used and abused. Welfare is not only taken advantage of by the Inland Empire crackheads that would rather trip out all day long and live free in their little world, but it’s also for the ones who find the loopholes to buy their next Coach or Gucci bag. Even if you may have found your fancy bag on sale at Ross, I’ve learned to accept my taxes will be going to someone’s drugs, boob job, designer clothes, or drinking money. In a perfect world, I’d love to imagine welfare is often regulated to make it to little Johnny’s starving belly…. Oh, look that’s a nice bag! Hmm…
HA! More to come from Noemi soon!
