IndigoStar7 Graffiti Maze: Signs Of The Times

I started this thread as a Graffiti Alley concept so that the images you post reflect the signs of our times and your concerns, whatever they may be. 

Anything you post on here does not have to be serious in nature and can be anything you want. Funny stuff, works of art, visually political statements etc. are encouraged. 

I would like to try to keep it to graphics/pics/posters/editorial cartoons/ clip art etc. and not videos. I encourage you to post what you consider to be the best of what you can find or already have.

In scouring the web in search of relevant images that convey some of my feelings and possibly yours, I came to the realization that many of the same issue's we are confronted by now are the same one's that were talked about and drawn onto paper many decades and even centuries ago.

Permission to tag the alley with graffiti is hereby given.......Painter

William Jennings Bryan "16 to 1" (circa 1900)

This cartoon criticizes William Jennings Bryan as a demagogue who overemphasizes the will of the people. The device Bryan holds resembles the smoke machine used by beekeepers, suggesting that Bryan is poisoning the minds of his supporters. The phrase “16 to 1” was the slogan for free silver, implying that free silver, like the beekeepers’ smoke, overpowers and clouds the minds of all who are exposed to it. The phrases from the smoke machine, particularly the last one (“The popular intuition is better than reasoning and what the people say goes”) ridicule Brian’s excessive trust in the people, depicted here as uneducated and unkempt farmers.

Dammit DPH!

I've got shit to do. It's hard enough to keep up with Main Street and the Speak. Once in a while I like to look in to Eric's miners.

The Sifter (1920)

This cartoon was originally published in The Woman Patriot, an Anti-Suffragist newspaper. It was authored by conservative women who were against the the 19th Amendment, as well as other liberal reforms. The cartoon was published just after the Amendment was ratified, making a statement as to the effects of the Amendment on Anti-Suffragist political supporters. It was published to argue that women should not have the legal right to vote it would have severe social and political implications.

Declined with Thanks (1900)

"Declined With Thanks". Editorial cartoon showing Uncle Sam as a large, fat man. President William McKinley, as a tailor, is measuring Uncle Sam for larger clothing. Anti-expansionists, led by Joseph Pulitzer, are holding bottles of medicine labeled "Anti-Expansion Policy" and spoons; they say, "Here, take a dose of this anti-fat and get thin again!" Uncle Sam replies, "No, Sonny! I never did take any of that stuff, and I'm too old to begin!"
