    ♫ Honesty is such a lonely word. Everyone is so untrue. ♫

  • JohninMd.(Help!?!!)

    As I recall, Damon had made a killing in some computer stock ventures, and was already
    Well off when he proposed to Jan. Long before ANYONE knew Don Protago’s situation, being the Godfather of Argentina. Or am I off the mark, Chris? What am I missing, here?

    • Swansonic

      Well, compared to Jan he is poor.

      Just like the rest of us…..

    • RooftopVoter

      I believe he mentioned T-bills prior to making his real money writing Apps…….

      But yea, Jan didn’t lay with no hood rat.

      • Ed Woods

        Wasn’t there something about selling a business early on, too?

  • Pamela

    Poor or Rich, everyone is the same at birth and death.

    • GWB

      Naked, screaming and covered in blood?

        And the fun doesn’t have to end there!

  • Kafiroon

    Anyone with younger eyes make the license plate?

    • Malatrope

      It looks like “3C5-W485” or “BC5-W485″…

  • Spin Drift

    Yeah but old D’genes was holding a lantern looking for that honest man. Still hasn’t found him, now he’s getting hassled by the man about his carbon emissions.

      And the law required he switch to a CFL in that lantern…..

      • B Woodman

        But the CFL has (gasp!) MERCURY in it. Ohhhh!!!. . . .POISON the ENVIRONMENT!! Call out the EPA HAZMAT Team!!! Spend even MORE Gubberment money. Make even MORE unenforceable laws!!!

        (all of the above is written with tongue firmly planted in cheek, swallowed with a healthy dose of sarcasm)

      • Old Codger

        CFLs when one takes into account the enemrgy required to manufacture them, plus the hazardous chemicals used in them and to manufacture them, have a worse net environmental impact than incandescents. Sort of like when the greenie weenies forced McD’s to switch from styrofoam to paper. Papaer has a much worse environmental footprint than styrofoam. Plus the styrofoam is recyclable whereas the paper, having been contaminated with food oils etc. is pretty much useless except to burn.

        • Pete in NC

          Same thing was true when O pushed through the clunker law – Most of an automobile’s environmental impact comes while getting it to the showroom. Keeping the older cars on the road would have been much cleaner, and wouldn’t have driven the price of used vehicles up for the working poor. And the hybrids’ batteries are an environmental disaster!

  • JTC

    Some of the dumbest folks I’ve ever met were “rich, learned, liberals”.

    At least this one knew an honest man when she met him; remember how in early times he showed her the truth when she tried to shame him into accepting his designated blackness as poor, downtrodden victim railing at “the man”?

    That is the very definition of racism as practiced by progs in general and the ones running the show right now in particular are the worst racists to ever hold power. Who knows how many good honest men are yearning to breathe free but lack the strength of conviction of Damon to resist the progressive and peer pressure to “represent” their culture as defined by victimhood, hate, and nanny statism?

    • The reason Damon is a part of the DD family is he is his own self, screw labels and cliches. Chris Muir rocks!

      • JTC

        Holy shit, BW…I was going to quote a couple of the most outrageous parts of that and then realized I’d have to just quote it all verbatim…the one glaring component is that it is all at our expense.

        Ironically, I was going to include the Asian parallel in my comment about the pressure for blacks to represent their culture, as I defined above. I remember TV images from the 60’s and early 70’s of young Vietnamese huddling in mud huts, groveling for scraps to survive, barely above animals in their circumstances, who when offered opportunity in a real capitalist competitive world turned into mathematical geniuses; the seed of prodigy was there, just waiting for an environment in which to cultivate and grow. And yet black kids (and with an academic system infested with the likes of your linked example, all American kids) who are born into the same environment of opportunity, are bred and taught and ridiculed and shamed into quashing any spark of individualism, critical thought, and ambition by the likes of that person who would train all educators to think and “teach” like her. And all of course on your dime, not only during the growing process but for the rest of their lives as they embrace and subsist on the scraps of the dole that they are taught to believe is what they are owed and to which their lives are limited.

        But why? What possible motivation can there be to maintain the ignorance and unproductive subsistence for millions of people? A sick reverse racism of course, but to what end? Votes? Just a method of maintaining their elite status and money/control? Over what? Do they not know or care that perpetuation will mean annihilation?

        I feel sick, and so pessimistic at the outlook for our children and our nation. Sob.

  • Iconoclast

    While she is merely a cartoon character, albeit one dear to the loyal followers of DbD, I think ya did Sam a disservice by suggesting she wouldn’t get the reference to Diogenes. She’s a redhead and gifted engineer, not a blond hotel heiress.

    • Facepalm.

    • GWB

      The kids are the ones talking in the middle panel.
      Though I admit I was baffled by the “lived in a big clay jar” bit. Never knew that part.

  • MasterDiver

    Maybe Jan mispronounced it. ‘Dee-O-jeness” instead of “Dy-o-jen-ees”.

  • Dastardly Dan

    You’re forgetting the girls are in the car.
    They are, I assume, homeschooled.
    They would ask questions like that, then research it when they got home and be experts by noon the next day.

  • GWB

    Why on earth would they be driving a Gov’t Motors Cadillac? Why aren’t they in a Ford? Or a Southern-built Toyota or Honda?

    • JTC

      ex-consulate freebies from dad-o-rama.

      • Old Codger

        Those Cadillac SuVs are damned expensive machines. Many moons ago (like 06 timeframe) I worked security guarding the overflow lot for a big Caddie dealer. Sticker on some of those beasts was more’n my HOUSE. To me there is something seriously oxymoronic about a Cadillac or Mercedes SUV. Just the term “Luxury SUV” is a contradiction in terms.

        • interventor

          But, love the Mercedes Unimog. Not luxurious, but darn handy.

        • eon

          Just like a luxury 4 x 4 with “bling wheels”. Fancy-shmancy knockoffs of low-profile tire setups intended for closed track and road-racing, where high-speed cornering can exert so much transverse G on the tires that conventional-profile sidewalls flex to the point of parting company with the rim, the tread, or both. Low-profiles largely eliminate the problem by eliminating most of the sidewall’s height.

          Luxo-barges aren’t fast enough to need them, and they wouldn’t last six seconds offroad.

          One more example of how modern elites’ ideas of what constitutes “distinction” mainly reveals their incredible ignorance of reality in general.

          clear ether

          eon

          • Spin Drift

            Um, the pinnacle of closed course racing is supposed to be F1. They are mandated to use 13″ rims and don’t have low profile tires but can still drive across the ceiling at speed. No, low profile is for dynamic response, flat “tread” foot print and heat mitigation not bead sealing.

            Gangsta’s with Conestogas are idiots. One pothole and kablooey. But if ya buy’em we’ll sell’em.

  • I know this is reaching, but could someone have confused “Agora” with “Amphora?”

    • Pamela

      Agora the marketplace or Amphora for storage.
      Some might confuse Aspasia for Hypatia though they are centuries apart.

      History is being rewritten, edited and cleansed from the classroom in this country and it needs to stop.

      An Honest Man these days is stoned for being racist.

      • NotYetInACamp

        I’s stills gots the rocks marks.

  • The Agora was not only an open marketplace, but it was the assembly area where the Greek version of our politicians met to openly discuss and argue. Diogenes spent a lot of time there. However, in the philosophical sense of “in vino veritas” amphora also works because diogenes was also looking for truth. In his day, inside a vino amphora would be where he would find it.
