    cannot comment on Chinese spam but I am looking forward to floozies, nudity and politics…Hope it arrives soon.

  • August 30, 2017 at 12:09 am

    37-23-36 also adds up quite well.

    • August 30, 2017 at 12:43 am

      38-24-38 gets 100 And a big A.

      The Ass Man scores again. 😉

    Ditto… just what are Chinese spam comments anywho? Comments in Chinese, about Chinese, from China…

    • August 30, 2017 at 12:16 am

      Example: “I make $2000 a day working for Google/Facebook/whatever, you can too just go to and see how it can be done” That is chinese spam.

      • August 30, 2017 at 12:17 am

        Please do not go to the www site I used as an example, I have NO idea what it leads to.

        A Duckduckgo search didn’t show anything for Ripoffartists at .com. .ca is an artists website with no recent activity and .org is a site reporting on such individuals.
        But if you do get in trouble go for great legal help at 1-666-SHYSTER!
        (The 666 area code is not in use.)

        Clearly, that area code must be direct to Wolfram and Hart.

        I clicked it, dud address. I guess nobody wanted it. Too bad, would be a good place to look up ripoff artists!

    Speaking of math, demographics, and “stepping up”, we’ll see if the call goes out for white boys in Houston.,,and the answer is of course it will.

    They mostly don’t want us there (city is less than 25% white and less than 50% of that is male). And they have joined the suit to provide shelter and comfort to criminal invaders. It’s Texas, but not really. But they will want us now.

    That’s a big step-up. But you know the call will come and we will be asked to -told to- handle it, and you know we will…and be criticized and castigated for not stepping up to do enough, fast enough, even when we do.

    That’s going to be a graphic and tragic demonstration of what this whole story arc is about, right there in Houston.

    Chris, don’t know if the captcha method still works to keep the chinks and trolls away, but I’d sure be will to take another quick step to put in my .02…I’m in awe at how you do what you do, and anything that helps you and helps the ‘toon, helps us.

  • August 30, 2017 at 12:41 am

    I like those numbers. Wise man. It is hard to get past them. 🙂
    I would even rather not.

    I do have an ethnic Han Chinese American former girlfriend. She still calls from far away. Loss of jobs made her a big only legal immigration advocate. No. that’s not the spam. Invasion/Conquest talk? That might encourage it. I think Rinko Kikuchi, Lee BingBing, and Angelababy are hot. But taken. Could be? Now how can I descend this comment into Dadaism? …

    • August 30, 2017 at 12:48 am

      Seems like it has already descended into (hot) Mamaism… 😀

      • August 30, 2017 at 12:59 am

        That is funny in ways that I won’t tell you.

      • August 30, 2017 at 7:49 am

        The “respectfully” part totally confused them.
        And by presstitute example, they do not use ‘search’.

      And I think Zed’s “math” is off just a bit. I think it’s more like 38DD-24-36. Isn’t that why the joint is called the “DD”?

    A few days ago there were discussions regarding Robert Heinlein’s “Starship Troopers” and the requirements for becoming a ‘Citizen’ versus a civilian. While enlisting (notice that all enlisted had to be recommended for Officer’s Training before becoming an officer) in the Mobile Infantry was the quickest route to citizenship, those that volunteered for law enforcement, fire fighting, off-world explotation and other hazardous careers (to include “human guinea pigs”) were also elevated to “Citizen” status. Heinlein required that the service had some hazard to one’s life or well-being be included so one’s ‘duty to the body’ was proven before they were given power over others.

    Another discussion regarded rapists and what would be considered a fitting punishment. Years ago I found out a friend of mine had been raped and the rapist was only given 2.5 Year’s! I asked her what she would have liked to be the punishment and what she said chilled me. First, build a teepee type structure in a field out of gasoline and oil soaked logs. In the middle is a groin-high stump with 3-4 large ‘U’ staples and a butter knife. The convicted prisoner is brought in, stripped and his penis stapled to the stump. The logs are then lit: He has the choice of cutting it off with the butter knife or burning alive. If he does cut it off and makes it out, a hidden sniper blows his brains out! After recovering my composure and thought about it, I thought it would be a fitting punishment considering the physical and mental destruction the crime causes all its victims, regardless of sex or age.
    Now if only we can get rid of the snowflakes saying it’s “cruel and unusual “.

      I prefer the Earth Federation’s method as described in H.Beam Piper’s Terro-Human Future History stories (Little Fuzzy et al).

      Murder, mass murder, rape, attempted smuggling or enslavement of a sentient being, didn’t matter. After a speedy but scrupulously fair trial before a judge and jury and an appeal, if found guilty the criminal received a pistol bullet to the back of the head. Quick, clean and appropriately ignominious.

      Frontier societies not only do not tolerate “predators”, they cannot. When you may have to depend on the person standing next to you to preserve your life and theirs both, the untrustworthy are not merely a useless extravagance, they are a deadly danger.

      That’s Justice

    • August 30, 2017 at 10:28 pm

      That would be an appropriate punishment.
      In that regard, I’ve considered that an appropriate punishment for rapists would be defenestration by throwing from a 10 story building, with a five-story-long hangmans’s noose of piano wire around a certain appendage.

    Chris keep up the work, I’m sure we’ll adjust to your constraints. I for one love reading our group’s comments daily. Maybe, if Chris needs to limit the comment section to be more efficient creating content, someone here having the expertise and time can copy Chris’s toons to another site like where we can continue our interaction.

  • August 30, 2017 at 1:41 pm

    I wonder if there’s a way to do a domain block so the Asian spam goes away?

    • August 30, 2017 at 2:08 pm

      Dang, this morning the site was telling me that to comment I had to have a freakin’ wordpress account…something I don’t need or want.

      I told Chris that in an email and even said I guess this is goodbye and good luck. He answered that was wrong and now it’s fixed.

      And it is. Whew!

    I haven’ spotted it in this reading of comments, (usually 2, sometimes 3 a day) but I tend to scan. Captchas seem to work, as spam bots cannot read them and manual labor types will not take the time.

    New toon?

  • August 30, 2017 at 8:32 pm

    For many years I’ve advocated a “don’t pay taxes, can’t vote” policy when it comes to voting. My thought is that if you’re not paying property taxes directly (because renters generally don’t recognize that that’s covered by a part of their rent), then you don’t get to vote on tax levies to pay for stuff. Don’t pay income taxes, can’t vote on anything income taxes pay for. Getting free stuff from the government? You don’t get to vote for the people giving you the free stuff. That way, if taxpayers feel the elected representatives are giving away too much stuff, they’ll vote out the bums and vote in someone more fiscally conservative with other people’s money.

    I must admit though, that I have no idea of how to actually enforce such a plan.

  • August 30, 2017 at 9:04 pm

    It’s not so obvious with the current style, but the usernames are also links to a website if you supply one (like mine), and spammers like to use those as well as putting links in the comments.

    Kinda sad, in the old format I used to get a lot of hits when I commented here, not so much now. But Chinese bots can’t tell the difference.

  • August 30, 2017 at 10:58 pm

    The men (and here and there, women) involved in the rescue and recovery efforts in Houston and surrounding areas are greatly appreciated. Many are white, some are black, some Hispanic. It really doesn’t matter. Some are Houstonian civilians, just doing what they can. Some are National Guard—they’ve got the good stuff for the hairy rescues via copter from fast water, that sort of thing. Some are Cajun Navy.

    There’s a common effort and your uniform is not your skin, but your intent. Come to help and you’ll get a hero’s welcome. Come to loot, well, you risk a hot welcome. But there’s really been very little of the latter.
