A Couple of Cartoons Explain the Tough Stuff: Understanding the SubPrime Mess and the Immigration issue.

Try explaining why asking an alien to wait in line back home is bad for business and bad for America is well illustrated in this cartoon using a flow chart to show that a path to citizenship is nearly impossible for most people even if they have relatives here.

Then stick figures illustrate how America got into the Fiscal Crisis we are in now. This PowerPoint style cartoon will explain how greed and lack of oversight caused what we now know to be the "Sub prime Mortgage financial crisis" and why we unfortunately may have to bail it out if we want to avoid a world wide financial collapse.

Sometimes you have to worry about easy answers, but explanations should be understandable to the people you are asking to pay for the solutions to today's problems.
