Benny & Sid Presents Chapter 2 of the new serialized graphic novel The Hummer

Here's a secret I'd like to share: Cheap goods are just as out of reach if you don't have a job.

The Hummer Episode #2 By Glen Bledsoe
By Glen Bledsoe

(Your City, USA) - Buy American! I think we'd all like to do that. We'd all like to be able to do that.

But what can you buy that's made in America?

What manufacturing industry hasn't been free to move overseas to avoid the cost of labor, the cost of paying workers what it takes to raise a family?

These same industries are now puzzled as to why they have no customers.

Here's a secret I'd like to share: Cheap goods are just as out of reach if you don't have a job.

But when it comes to automobiles the story is far more heart-breaking.

Right now I'd commit a felony for a cherry-licorice pistol, reminds me of the days in my fleeting youth, drooling with my brothers in the back seat of a 57' Plymouth station wagon.,318 cubic inches of American power with a push button Dyna Flow automatic transmission!, five kids under the age of ten and a bag of licorice pistols! No wonder my mom was on anti-depressents.
