I figured, what better way to celebrate the Holidays than with a look back at the year that was with a little humour. I hope you all enjoy!

Have a Merry Christmas, A Happy New Year, A Happy Hanukkah, A kick-ass Kwanzaa and to my Atheist friends, have a beautiful… ordinary day!

The Arab Spring

Watch the Dominoes Fall
One toppled after another
Who's Next?

The Economy

2011 was about debt, not jobs
Not too fast up the hill
Corporations are sitting on close to $3,000,000,000,000...
The Republican theory of trickle down economics

Occupy Wall Street

The Occupied and Unoccupied
American Justice
2011 was the year of the pepper spray

The Republican Presidential Nomination

We all know Republican ideology
An endless amount of debates
Does it matter who is in the driver's seat?
Nope, doesn't matter at all

Let’s no forget Canada in 2011

Conservatives win a majority government
NDP wins over a hundred seats, filled with rookies
The G20 in Toronto
Harper's Crime bill
Harper on the environment

The Death of Kim Jung Il
The Death of Muammar Gaddafi
The Death of Steve Jobs

Two Billion tune in to the Royal Wedding
Euro Debt Crisis
Terrorism in Norway

And Finally…

What has really changed?


Anyone ever notice the only news we get exposed to these days is filled with fear and misery? 50% of the stories are either about people dying (accidents, natural disasters, wars, etc.) or people lying (politicians, businessmen, lawyers, etc.). The other 50% are filled with nonsensical gibberish about some celebrity’s affair or fashion sense. So depressing…

Unfortunately Quiet Mike is no exception. As much as I try to get people to wake up, think and question the status quo, I do have a tendency to cover some pretty discouraging topics. While my intensions I believe are for the better, the death of Jack Layton this past week has reminded me that life is short and we can all use a little humour from time to time. So with hilarity and wit in mind, I give you the First Quiet Mike Political Cartoon-A-Thon!
