That damned Option

What's Mallard raving about today?

Technical Support

If you didn't vote Republican Perhaps all those job creators they shower tax breaks on would staff call centers with Americans, rather than low-wage foreign workers in other countries.

The fact that you're a technical illiterate is your own fault.

Nice! Mallard and Batshit simultaneously demonstrate THREE forms of ignorance in a single panel! Intolerant bigotry, technical illiteracy, and willful disassociation of cause and effect!

...Uh, congratulations, I guess.

So is Mallard Fillmore suddenly in favor of limiting corporations' ability to send American jobs overseas?

Or is he just whining?

It's likely only the brain damage caused by years of alcohol abuse that's prevented Brucie from developing a crippling case of cognitive dissonance.

DaveyK nailed it: The questionable customer service Brucie is whining about today is the direct result of Brucie's precious Republicans enabling and rewarding corporations that ship jobs overseas. Yeah, they're "job creators"; trouble is, the jobs they're creating are in China and India and Mexico and any other country where they can pay the workers pennies instead of the dollars they'd have to pay American workers. And as if that weren't a lucrative enough arrangement for them, they also cheat on their taxes by hiding their profits under fake business names in the Cayman Islands -- a fraud that costs the country tens of billions of dollars a year.

But I guess "job creators" just sounds better than "un-American greedy pigs".

What inspired today's strip:

Bruce: hello my computer isn't working right.

Tech support: I see, Alright firstly what kind of computer do you have?

Bruce: Eh? There's more then one?

Tech support: Lets skip that, Is the computer plugged in?

Bruce: Of course it is.

Tech: When was the last time the computer was working correctly?

Bruce: well I was cruising through a six pack resting a cold can in the slide out can holder on the box thingy the computer is connected to and then BLAMOBAMAISANELETIST it sparked and it don't work now.

Tech: Sir are you telling me you placed a beverage in the cd tray of the computer tower,It spilled and now your computer won't work?

Bruce:.........um..

Tech: I see perhaps you should lay off drinking near your computer in the future, I'm going to have to ask that you send it in for repairs,Most likely it will take a week to repair.

"Sir, I'm already calling your components "The glowy flat thing", "noisey box", "Sir Buttons-ton" and "Mr. Clicky." There is literally no way to dumb this down any more for you.
