    Well said about Venezuela! The left never seems to produce a sustainable government anywhere.

      Oh, I don’t know. Their governments can last a really long time. It’s their societies that tend to implode.

    Socialism is repackaged Fuedalism which is repackaged tyranny – the rule of dictators.

    At its heart is the Lord-Serf Compact [aka Lord-Peasant or Master-Slave Compact}.

    The names and titles changed to protect the guilty.

    Is it any surprise that the party of slave-owners is socialist?

    If Venezuela has problems – a very big IF – they’re solely due to Trump and fascist nationalist populists, not to mention climate change and the patriarchy. Trust the honest and objective MSM on this, and don’t give up on Venezuelan Hope and Change!

      Maybe Zero could go down there and straighten it all out? And I’m sure Michelle could get them eating their greens in no time.

      We wouldn’t want Maduro to think we’re invading, though, so he should leave his Secret Service detail at home, perhaps…….

        I get the cartoon cropped to daily strip size. If I click Archives and then scroll down to the bottom of the list and choose todayโ€™s date, I get the same bad crop. If I click โ€œSelect Chapter,โ€ it doesnโ€™t let me select this month. If I select last month and then hand-edit the URL to be this month, finally I get the full comic. The crop and the chapter problems are definitely worth fixing.

    Slavery is slavery no matter the trappings provided by the Great Society Government http://www.ushistory.org/us/56e.asp and it does not make it’s People free and upstanding. It shackles them into servitude, sloth and a bleak future but for a few that escape through Perseverance and Divine intervention.

    Lock and Load. It’s going to be getting rough out there on purpose by those who crave power and control, with their petty tyrannical demands and foot stomping tantrums.

    I bet you anything Sam Adams is not wearing a corset under that uniform and she is not binding herself.

    • June 5, 2017 at 11:07 am

      The downfall of LBJ parallels the fatal flaw of socialism itself.

      If eliminating infringement on the Constitutional right to EQUAL ACCESS to prosperity (Civil Rights Act handed to him by JFK) is good, then MANDATED EQUALITY by redistribution must be better, right?

      Same but different (but same) for lunatics like Madura. Doesn’t matter whether the redistribution is done by legislative fiat to achieve “equality” -i.e. buy support and power- or by nationalized institutions and military -i.e. to steal the treasure and power for self and cronies- it’s the redistribution that binds them and dooms them.

      Well, there’s only one sure way to see if Sam is wearing a corset…hopefully we’ll know tomorrow!

      And no, I am sure Sam is not binding herself…although she may permit Zed to test the bounds of their relationship…so to speak.

    Well said, Pamela.

    Historically, revolutions don’t end well, e.g., French, Bolshevik, or tin-pot dictators who take over once-thriving countries like Cuba, Venezuela and others, and then proceed to drive them into the ground. Ours was unique because it was based on the principles of individual liberty and equality under the law. Do we have to have another revolution to regain lost liberties? If we do, will we be able to again base it principally, rather than engage in class warfare? Class warfare seems to be ruling the day right now.

    A very good analysis of the class distinctions that exist in the United States today was written in 2010 by Angelo Codevilla: America’s Ruling Class, and the Perils of Revolution. It’s worth the 30 minutes or so it will take to read it.

        Speaking of barbarians through the gates, this is probably the best article I’ve read on the whole Muslim invasion

        http://thefederalist.com/2017/06/05/london-bridge-world-sick-politicians-downplaying-terrorism/

        Here’s the money quote:

        “Our political leaders are basically telling us that this kind of terrorism, random and deadly, is the price we have to pay for their policies of multiculturalism and political correctness. They know that their weak platitudes canโ€™t stop terrorism, and so do the people. They might as well come out and say what they mean: get used to the new normal.”

    The musket looks all pretty, hanging from the belt at the front like it is……until Sam needs to take more then two steps, and then oops! lost it! Weren’t there holsters for pistols even back then?

    I noticed the left handed lock on the musket also. Pistol holsters in Colonial times hung from the pommel of a saddle or, when worn on the body, were either secured in a baldric ( large leather strap worn crossways from the shoulder) or the pistol had a large belt hook to hang from a waist belt. Most military accoutrements were worn on cross belts from the shoulders. “Can you throw ’em cross your shoulder, like a Continental soldier?”

    Chris, slight bug: If you hit the PREV button under the daily cartoon, it frames the previous day’s strip in the single row format. This is a problem for Sundays, which are larger, and longer strips. I found a workaround in clicking 6-4-2017 on the calendar, which allowed the Sunday strip to appear correctly. -Tom
