    Incoming. Lock and load?

  • Greg B

    So are the Feds going to come after Zed & Sam now that the ranch is unprotected by diplomatic immunity?
    Like Schlichter says, “buy ammo”.

  • Big Jim

    “Bring lawyers, guns and money, the shit has hit the fan…”

  • Vorlonagent

    Not good.

    DD is violating a quarter-ton (by weight, not volume) of federal regulations. Given the animosity the Feds have for Our Heroes, they’ll go straight to a pretext for taking the ranch without much in the way of warning.

    There’s also possible criminal charges against Zed and maybe Sam and Damon.

  • JTC

    So…what is this “Argentine property” they are looking to repatriate?

    • Chris Muir

      furniture,decorations,etc inside the DD club-the property(land) itself is still owned by Zed.

      • JTC

        Oh, well then. I was thinking maybe ‘splody stuff and paraphernalia…so bring on the jackboots!

    • B Woodman

      If Don Portago wants it, make him at least pay for the return shipping.

      • Chris Muir

        Argentina wants it, not DP.

        • B Woodman

          Either way.

  • Big Jim

    And by the way, Mr. Muir, the artwork is some of the best ever. You should really offer an annual calendar with 52 weekly examples, not just one a month.

  • Spin Drift

    The politician giveth and the politician taketh away. I expect the feds to show up in a day or two. It’s best for them not to be there except maybe their lawyers.

    Lock and Load

    • B Woodman

      Normally I’d say barricade the front gate, and greet the Feds there, locked and loaded. But I don’t want the DD crew to commit suicide.

      As Gen Patton said, “No dumb bastard ever won a war by going out and dying for his country. He won it by making some other dumb bastard die for his country.”

      Soooo,. . . . how to take the fight to the Feds, instead of sitting like a duck waiting for them to come in strength to you? The best defense is a good offense.

  • B Woodman

    “Down to his last ten billion.”
    Seriously? Above a certain level is just surplus.

    • JTC

      Well since the Argentine accounts are frozen, they must be talking yen…so what is that, about $30?

      • Brodder

        at about 100Yen to the Dollar and 10 Billion (US Billion) that’s one Trillion Yen. That’s plenty o’money there.

        • JTC

          Yeah yeah, about $84M, but see, that would eff up my joke so…

          And even then that won’t keep the jet and the bulldog fed for long, or even pay for a prez run…right DT? (and Bloomie, gag)

  • They should have ample warning due to the drone. And it’d be fun to torture the Federal Goons with some Barry Manilow at volume level 15 🙂

    • GWB

      I don’t think you could fit a big enough speaker on the drone. 😉

  • B Woodman

    Is there a hidden underground well stocked bunker on the DD that everyone can hide out in? (except Skye – leave her in the cell for now. with her proclivities, she’d give them all away and get everyone all killed – a la Waco)

  • interventor

    Consular property would include a flag, brass name plate, blank passports, forms, etc. Argentine voters recently kicked out the socialist government. Very few dollar accounts were as llowed.

  • Ironically, Chile is starting to look like a fall back plan if North America becomes a nuclear wasteland, diseased landscape, or trashed third world hellhole thanks to financial collapse, power grid failure, or other SHTF scenario.

    As long as there is DBD artwork in the bunker, patriots will figure out a way to cope.

    • Lucius Severus Pertinax

      Chile.. or Uruguay. Uruguay is actually a quite pleasant little country; it is the only country in South America that exists entirely outside the Tropics.

      • Lucius Severus Pertinax

        It also has GREAT beaches!

  • Curlysan

    If you really want to torture any incoming feds; blast them some Celine Dion, Bieber, or Cher.

  • This rather sucks, but I know Chris will save the day somehow.

    • Greg B

      I know, right?
      Seems like our intrepid heroes face more than their share of challenges.

    Sorry, got distracted – appreciate the view.

  • Bill G

    Alas, the days of the ‘Men Only’ operation are over. I’m not sure what else would be in violation on the property but the various agencies are sure to come charging in to find anything they can.
    Time to install lots of cameras and get those, as well as the drones camera feed on-line in real time.

    • Otto Didact

      And send the feed real-time via sat link to a server on a secure, trusted, offshore location.

    • H_B

      Damn Californian emigrees.

      Oh wait…

  • Pamela

    Tell Argentina to go pound sand. Don Portago should have had his money hidden away or buried in a nice spot with snakes and hawgs guarding it.

    • Otto Didact

      I was really surprised that Don P left any of his money where his enemies could get to it. I seriously doubt either Bloomberg or the Donald have very much of theirs where the feds could hit them. I figure Trump made sure his was safe before he ever announced his candidacy. He’s GOTTA know the Damnocrats wouldn’t scruple to cripple him financially if he posed a serious threat to whomever runs on their ticket.

  • GWB

    Chris, nice attention to detail on Sam. Subtle, but gorgeous.

  • Dread

    Fantastic graphic execution Mr. Muir! Extremely well done!

  • rickmurphy

    My, that is about the most detailed drawing of Sam I have seen.

    • Grunt GI

      Yes, they’re real and they’re spectacular.

      Some days I do envy Zed.

  • H_B

    Wait, he fled with is wife to Hokkaido in winter? Cozy…

    • Otto Didact

      Guess he wanted to catch the winter festival in Sapporo (a Winter Olympics venu that actually made sense). We used to watch programs on Japanese TV when I was stationed at Yokota AB near Tokyo. Never able to go anywhere farther than Mt Fuji or Nikko. Damned expensive place, Japan, and that was when the yen was trading between 200 – 250 per dollar. When the yen was around 200 the only person on Yokota who made more than the civilian gate guards was the 2-star general who commanded 5th Air Force. Seems their pay had been specified in yen when the yen was fixed at 360/$.

  • Spin Drift

    Chris:

    Have you been channeling “Grey’s Anatomy” when drawing Sam?

  • interventor

    Fill out the blank Argentine passports with their names. Claim sanctuary as refugees from the new anti-socialist government. Will serve as a diversion.

  • JohninMd.(Help!?!!)

    I wonder how Jan is gonna handle the news? Always a plot twist up your sleeve, eh, Chris?

  • Big Jim

    What money did the Don put in there other than a couple of Cadillacs and a helo? I thought Damon put up the money for the remodel etc.

    • Chris Muir

      You’re right-not much.Yet gummintzs always want back anything they give.

        • Otto Didact

          What Teh Gooberment hath power to give, Teh Gooberment hath power to take away – and then some.

          There – fixed it for ya.

  • JTC

    What Teh Gooberment hath power to redistribute of yours, Teh Gooberment hath power to undistribute, then redistribute some more of yours.

    Refixed it. Cumbersome but factual.

    • Pamela

      The goobermutts can take their greed, gluttony and larcenous little minds, and stick it where the sun don’t shine. Like Hildabeasts and Berniepoos orifices.

  • William Elliott

    Wait, is there a real world correlation? Cause I’m working near a REAL DD Ranch here near Burnet, Texas…
    You know just in case the real Sam and Zed need some backup when the feds come…
    Yes, there really is a DD Ranch, for sale even, just south of Burnet.

    • Chris Muir

      Hah! I had no idea, how cool! Thanks, William!

    Who’s this T. Jefferson fella? Sounds like a smart guy. Could use some of them now.

    Perhaps the Japanese government would have an interest in some prime DD embassy property recently available for designation in the world economic powerhouse of Texas? Don?
