M2 discussion 5: american imperialism | Accounting

 

Image is of a political cartoon.  In the middle dominating the picture is a slender bearded Uncle Sam dressed in a circus performer's tights decorated with stars and stripes, standing on a plinth labeled Army and Navy. He balances two dark skinned pygmies or dwarves on his shoulders and grasps two by their shorts; one stands atop his head.  Each little person is dressed only in shorts and all but one has a spiky hairdo; the hair of the one is short cropped.  Two wear earrings and all have caricatured huge lips.  Four little people bear a US flag with a label: Cuba, Puerto Rico, Philippines, and Ladrones [aka, the Marianas Islands], and the one on Uncle Sam's head has shorts labeled Hawaii.  In the audience to this circus act are various men, some with beards and hats.  One shabby man wears a sash labeled Russia, one wears the pointed hat of a Prussian Junker, and one is a fat man with an frilly cravat who is intended to represent Britain in the form of John Bull.  The caption reads, 'HOLDING HIS END UP. John Bull -- 'It's really most extraordinary what training will do.  Why, only the other day I thought that man unable to support himself.' Philadelphia Inquirer.
