    So are the Feds going to come after Zed & Sam now that the ranch is unprotected by diplomatic immunity?
    Like Schlichter says, “buy ammo”.

  • January 25, 2016 at 9:40 pm

    Not good.

    DD is violating a quarter-ton (by weight, not volume) of federal regulations. Given the animosity the Feds have for Our Heroes, they’ll go straight to a pretext for taking the ranch without much in the way of warning.

    There’s also possible criminal charges against Zed and maybe Sam and Damon.

    So…what is this “Argentine property” they are looking to repatriate?

    • January 25, 2016 at 10:36 pm
      Chris Muir

      furniture,decorations,etc inside the DD club-the property(land) itself is still owned by Zed.

      • January 25, 2016 at 10:48 pm

        Oh, well then. I was thinking maybe ‘splody stuff and paraphernalia…so bring on the jackboots!

      If Don Portago wants it, make him at least pay for the return shipping.

        Argentina wants it, not DP.

        Either way.

    And by the way, Mr. Muir, the artwork is some of the best ever. You should really offer an annual calendar with 52 weekly examples, not just one a month.

    The politician giveth and the politician taketh away. I expect the feds to show up in a day or two. It’s best for them not to be there except maybe their lawyers.

      Normally I’d say barricade the front gate, and greet the Feds there, locked and loaded. But I don’t want the DD crew to commit suicide.

      As Gen Patton said, “No dumb bastard ever won a war by going out and dying for his country. He won it by making some other dumb bastard die for his country.”

      Soooo,. . . . how to take the fight to the Feds, instead of sitting like a duck waiting for them to come in strength to you? The best defense is a good offense.

    “Down to his last ten billion.”
    Seriously? Above a certain level is just surplus.

    • January 25, 2016 at 10:52 pm

      Well since the Argentine accounts are frozen, they must be talking yen…so what is that, about $30?

      • January 26, 2016 at 3:21 am

        at about 100Yen to the Dollar and 10 Billion (US Billion) that’s one Trillion Yen. That’s plenty o’money there.

      • January 26, 2016 at 9:56 am

        Yeah yeah, about $84M, but see, that would eff up my joke so…

        And even then that won’t keep the jet and the bulldog fed for long, or even pay for a prez run…right DT? (and Bloomie, gag)

  • January 25, 2016 at 10:52 pm

    They should have ample warning due to the drone. And it’d be fun to torture the Federal Goons with some Barry Manilow at volume level 15 🙂

    • January 26, 2016 at 8:02 am

      I don’t think you could fit a big enough speaker on the drone. 😉

    Is there a hidden underground well stocked bunker on the DD that everyone can hide out in? (except Skye – leave her in the cell for now. with her proclivities, she’d give them all away and get everyone all killed – a la Waco)

  • January 26, 2016 at 12:22 am

    Consular property would include a flag, brass name plate, blank passports, forms, etc. Argentine voters recently kicked out the socialist government. Very few dollar accounts were as llowed.

  • January 26, 2016 at 12:26 am

    Ironically, Chile is starting to look like a fall back plan if North America becomes a nuclear wasteland, diseased landscape, or trashed third world hellhole thanks to financial collapse, power grid failure, or other SHTF scenario.

    As long as there is DBD artwork in the bunker, patriots will figure out a way to cope.

      Chile.. or Uruguay. Uruguay is actually a quite pleasant little country; it is the only country in South America that exists entirely outside the Tropics.

        It also has GREAT beaches!

  • January 26, 2016 at 12:45 am

    If you really want to torture any incoming feds; blast them some Celine Dion, Bieber, or Cher.

  • January 26, 2016 at 1:52 am

    This rather sucks, but I know Chris will save the day somehow.

    Alas, the days of the ‘Men Only’ operation are over. I’m not sure what else would be in violation on the property but the various agencies are sure to come charging in to find anything they can.
    Time to install lots of cameras and get those, as well as the drones camera feed on-line in real time.

    Tell Argentina to go pound sand. Don Portago should have had his money hidden away or buried in a nice spot with snakes and hawgs guarding it.

    • January 26, 2016 at 2:36 pm
      Otto Didact

      I was really surprised that Don P left any of his money where his enemies could get to it. I seriously doubt either Bloomberg or the Donald have very much of theirs where the feds could hit them. I figure Trump made sure his was safe before he ever announced his candidacy. He’s GOTTA know the Damnocrats wouldn’t scruple to cripple him financially if he posed a serious threat to whomever runs on their ticket.

  • January 26, 2016 at 8:04 am

    Chris, nice attention to detail on Sam. Subtle, but gorgeous.

  • January 26, 2016 at 8:20 am

    Fantastic graphic execution Mr. Muir! Extremely well done!

    Wait, he fled with is wife to Hokkaido in winter? Cozy…

    • January 26, 2016 at 2:48 pm
      Otto Didact

      Guess he wanted to catch the winter festival in Sapporo (a Winter Olympics venu that actually made sense). We used to watch programs on Japanese TV when I was stationed at Yokota AB near Tokyo. Never able to go anywhere farther than Mt Fuji or Nikko. Damned expensive place, Japan, and that was when the yen was trading between 200 – 250 per dollar. When the yen was around 200 the only person on Yokota who made more than the civilian gate guards was the 2-star general who commanded 5th Air Force. Seems their pay had been specified in yen when the yen was fixed at 360/$.

    Fill out the blank Argentine passports with their names. Claim sanctuary as refugees from the new anti-socialist government. Will serve as a diversion.

    What money did the Don put in there other than a couple of Cadillacs and a helo? I thought Damon put up the money for the remodel etc.

    Wait, is there a real world correlation? Cause I’m working near a REAL DD Ranch here near Burnet, Texas…
    You know just in case the real Sam and Zed need some backup when the feds come…
    Yes, there really is a DD Ranch, for sale even, just south of Burnet.
