JTC Jan 12 2020 at 12:11 am Oh, he’s dangerous. Depends on the tool. Talk about control. Liking that ponytail Red! kadaka Jan 12 2020 at 12:16 am The chainsaw bayonet attachment is just a tool, good for clearing the brush in front of you. Nothing scary at all. Tiger Tomcat Jan 12 2020 at 12:18 am Think Sam is cruising for a lil punishment later, with her ribbing of Zed cb Jan 12 2020 at 12:50 am Just leave us and our tools alone, go find something else to play with before you get hurt. John Block Jan 12 2020 at 1:08 am The biggest tools I see are in the VA. Governor’s mansion, and Bloomberg’s little suits…. Cliff H Jan 12 2020 at 1:45 am Some change-up in the art work, Chris? Can’t quite place what’s different, but Sam’s looking different and better for some reason and I don’t think it’s just the pony tail. PaulS Jan 12 2020 at 11:14 am It’s the T-Shirt! Sam wears it so well! HAWT! 🙂 John Jan 12 2020 at 12:53 pm Is she pregnant again?!!! Henry Jan 12 2020 at 4:55 pm It’s the new eyeshadow and eyelashes, I think. WayneM Jan 12 2020 at 1:52 am It’s all about control; power and authority. Nothing else really matters to them. MasterDiver Jan 12 2020 at 10:01 am “The [Democrat] Party seeks power entirely for its own sake. We are not interested in the good of others… We are different from all the oligarchies of the past in that we know what we’re doing… Power is not a means, it is an end… The object of power is power… Always there will be the intoxication of power… We are the priests of power… Power is power over human beings, over the body; but above all over the mind… The real power; the power we have to fight for night and day is not power over things but over men. How does one man assert his power over another… by making him suffer… Power is in inflicting pain and humiliation.” George Orwell- 1984 WayneM Jan 12 2020 at 1:10 pm The freaky part is Orwell was a vocal supporter of “Democratic Socialism” although supposedly he was anti-totalitarian. Not sure how that’s supposed to work since socialism invariably ends up going totalitarian… John Jan 12 2020 at 1:16 pm Orwell was a textbook example of cognitive dissonance. He wrote so succinctly of the evil mindset of Socialism and yet was a lifelong Socialist himself. The only reason I can think of for this anomaly is that, like other Socialists, he believed Human Nature was somehow infinitely malleable rather than the bedrock foundation of our very being. It is not an accident that Socialists reject Religion. The Judaeo Christian Scriptures are, in the end, even if you can’t bring yourself to believe in an Afterlife, a commentary on that Nature, and they are by no means exhaustive. Just ask Jordan Peterson. interventor Jan 12 2020 at 7:15 pm The Soviets believed they could mold the New Soviet Man. Just as the Nazis believed they could breed an Aryan superman. All the commies got was more Russian drunks. Craig Jan 12 2020 at 2:11 am Laughing….. T Paul Jan 12 2020 at 2:13 am Zed is a white military veteran who doesn’t automatically buy into every guilt narrative the left puts out. Of course they’re scared of him! Lifeofthe Mind Jan 12 2020 at 2:15 am Sam handles Zed’s tool better than Zed does. As it should be. Pamela Jan 12 2020 at 3:08 am Ah Sam. We both know that the No longer sane Dems have sold their virtue forty too many times. They crave bringing slavery back in the guise of safety. NotYetInACamp Jan 12 2020 at 3:16 am When is the next turkey deep fry suborbital reality and not phantasmagorical possible orbital event coming up? Let’s just use the tol in the right places and times where you all are good tool users. MasterDiver Jan 12 2020 at 12:18 pm Perhaps we could make it one of the feral hogs and lob it ito a certain mullahs office window? Zar Belk! Pamela Jan 12 2020 at 12:35 pm Oh! Oh! Pulled Pork. What type of sauce? Punta Gorda Jan 12 2020 at 3:27 am Don’t giggle too hard about that stapler thing. I’ve done that and the most derisive voice you hear about it is from yourself. Bill G Jan 12 2020 at 5:01 am It’s all about control, indeed. The left is terrified of the citizen who comes to understand that he/she is their own first line of defense and buys a gun to better do that. Because that person just might look around, and see other things to do for themself, instead of waiting for the government to do it. And when enough people get that mind set the left is done. Badger Jan 12 2020 at 7:58 am Mother/daughter chats are important, especially when there’s an example lounging nearby. The all-too-missing these days ‘Family’ tag for today’s art sums it up nicely, PaulS Jan 12 2020 at 11:23 am Lost Dad in 2012, Mom in 2019 (though Alzheimer’s had taken her long before) but I was blessed with parents that did it right, in spite of my efforts to the contrary. Thank them often for setting me straight from time to time. Halley Jan 12 2020 at 2:19 pm This sounds just like my upcoming 2020… Old Codger Jan 12 2020 at 12:15 pm Kafiroon. I read Bracken’s analysis and agree that it is spot on. Considering the similarities, I wonder if 20 January, 2020 might not turn out to be this century’s 19 April, 1775 Pamela Jan 12 2020 at 12:37 pm And then from stage left there is this little gem: https://archive.md/u7RMj#selection-317.0-317.54 Pamela Jan 12 2020 at 12:39 pm Oops. Forgot the article. https://www.activistpost.com/2020/01/the-un-is-hiring-english-speaking-disarmament-officers-in-new-york.html Old Codger Jan 12 2020 at 12:46 pm Is it just me or would those purty blue helmets make dandy aim points? John M. Jan 13 2020 at 12:51 am Not necessarily a good aiming point, but they definitely make target acquisition easier… Kafiroon Jan 12 2020 at 4:25 pm “the responsibilities for the new hires, as per the United Nations job listing” looks like they want generals not street thugs. Those requirements seem way beyond common everyday people and their planning, writing and probably understandable English. And Yes, they will make great absorption material. Old Codger Jan 12 2020 at 12:43 pm Despots (and would-be despots) have always and WILL always seek to disarm those over whom they would rule for the simple reason that it makes it more difficult for their subjects to rebel. They forget that while disarming the populous makes rebellion more – VASTLY more difficult – it does not make it impossible. A sufficiently large group of sufficiently motivated unarmed (at least not conventionally armed) serfs can take down an armed and fully armored mounted man at arms. They will not do so easily or bloodlessly but they CAN do it. As Stalin put it Quantity has a quality all its own. Unfortunately for the wannabe despots, the populous-disarmament ship sailed long – two centuries and more – ago and the numbers are vastly in favor of the potential rebels. John Jan 12 2020 at 1:44 pm The presently disarmed Venezuelan populace might disagree with your assessment. ottersmith Jan 12 2020 at 1:44 pm Socialism does not reject religion; it is a religion. It rejects competing religions. (As do most religions, “I am the Lord thy God, and thou shalt have no other god before me.” I got into big trouble in confirmation class by asking how one could convert to Christianity. (conversion requires the abandonment of prior gods.)) Kafiroon Jan 12 2020 at 4:32 pm Any semi competent backyard mechanic or person that is familiar with tools is quite capable of being very dangerous with tools. The difference between them and ‘others’ is being able use and know how to create other tools. Kafiroon Jan 12 2020 at 4:36 pm Some ‘inganeers’ I worked with were not worth talking too. Go away. I will have it ready far faster with you gone. And functioning by skipping your instructions. kadaka Jan 12 2020 at 5:59 pm I found a sealed bag, it had the user manual for a microwave, the previous one. That oven had come in, was used for years before the bottom rusted out, then was creatively reduced to discrete parts since local waste management no longer accepts electronics. For its lifespan, I never used its instructions even once. I won. Too Tall Jan 12 2020 at 11:50 pm Progtard DildoCrats aren’t just afraid of tools, they are tools. The biggest, most expensive, most dangerous, useless tools available. The Consumer Product Safety Commission should have banned them decades ago.
