    How glad I am that he succeed in escaping Skye’s clutches and ended up with Naomi.

    • September 8, 2015 at 1:32 am

      Indeed. Far the better option.

  • September 8, 2015 at 1:44 am

    The Cold War never really ended.

    • September 8, 2015 at 5:00 am

      Why did we have to get so many of the Communists and Marxists here?

      • September 8, 2015 at 4:05 pm
        John Greer

        Because any Communist or Marxist can grow up to be President if he lies skillfully enough.

      • September 9, 2015 at 9:03 pm

        In fairness we also have a lot of ex communists here in the form of russian tech people…programmers and the like…*because* communism sucks.

    • September 8, 2015 at 8:34 am

      Nor the Civil War. What we’re headed for now is a combination of the two; Americans v. Commies right within our own borders. (Borders; ain’t that a quaint notion anymore?)

    Naomi has proven to be a useful character.

  • September 8, 2015 at 3:40 am

    Is she cutting vegetables with a throwing knife…?

    • September 8, 2015 at 5:05 am

      If so, it means she’s expert enough that she can keep here blades sharp and not worry about nicking the edge with a bad throw.
      My first thought had been a kukri, but there’s no downward curve in the blade.

    • September 8, 2015 at 7:48 am

      I love a woman who can multi-task.

    • September 8, 2015 at 11:33 am

      Any knife in Naomi’s hands is a throwing knife, if it comes down to it.

  • September 8, 2015 at 4:55 am

    Communists are best viewed as something stupid and evil done in the past.
    We now have our legacy. Let’s not add to it. There is a maintenance cost to all that is. Consider the costs.

    • September 8, 2015 at 6:58 am

      Oh, they are definitely in the here and now. It’s just that most of them are in former Soviet republics and the USA. I think the trend in Russia herself is toward Tsarism.

    Hillary, Biden, Sanders, Lenin, Skye; all are high maintenance.

      Like all master / slave relationships.

    Ooh Boy! This could get gloriously ugly.
    Sorry: the cat fight stands out. Observations about US Gov Communists are old news to this old Cold Warrior.

    What is the Rorschach test in the first panel? Dead vegetables?

    At this point, Biden is beginning to look like The Great Hope, at least compared to the Hilamonster and Bernie the Pretender; aka the little man who knows nothing. My fear is that the Republicans will splinter and a Democrat will win; if so I’d rather it was Biden. I disagree with him on many things, but at least he is not overtly anti-American, like the rest.

    • September 8, 2015 at 12:27 pm

      I must observe that while lazy “… and stupid is no way to go through life ….,” joey babbles has made it his career. And while the others at least had the tools be decent leaders were they not so self-servingly mendacious, Ja-Ja Biden is an uniquely American third rate half-wit clone of ‘Baghdad Bob.’

    The media has covered Biden s many gaffes with excuses as such as “Aw, that’s Joe just being Joe”, watch now for a fawning description of a all knowing, all wise, elder statesman and a natural born leader. The very thought of Biden as POTUS makes me want to hurl.

    • September 8, 2015 at 5:22 pm

      I dunno, compared to the inherent evil the other two embody and would inflict, a prez with a lobotomy might be (comparatively) harmless.

      But God save us from them all…including quite a few of the R’s.

  • September 8, 2015 at 8:12 pm

    Cold War. More like scorched earth if Naomi has dealings with Skye.

    • September 8, 2015 at 8:21 pm

      I agree. Naomi has NO intention of starting a COLD war.

  • September 8, 2015 at 9:21 pm

    Is it time to restart the Real Cold War? I could use a break from morons parading in the streets, smelling like their own intestinal digestive byproducts.

  • September 8, 2015 at 11:45 pm

    Say this much for Skye, unlike Lenin with her it is all original equipment with no parts that will fall off if not maintained with medicine, putty or plastics.

  • September 9, 2015 at 10:26 am

    I think Dimitri is worried about the Cold War in his own home, not between Naomi and Skye. As others have noted, that matchup would involve live ammo. Whoever is pulling the strings for DNC, or even the RNC for that matter, have little respect for liberty. As Dimitri realizes, it’s the fight in your own home that can be the most devastating.
