Swansonic Feb 15 2019 at 1:23 am Nor Coachilla and the carrot festival therein… Toxic Deplorable B Woodman Feb 14 2019 at 12:17 am The LibTard Prog’s religion (cult) has always been, and always will be, The State. They acknowledge nothing outside or higher than themselves, they worship themselves, their passions, their perversions, whatever feels good in the moment. They have no permanent foundation or principles. The LibTard Progs are the Biblical fools who built their house upon the sand. The State is used like the Cardinals of The Inquisition, to enforce their collective (see what I did there?) will, to bend and break the unbelievers and defilers of (fill in the blank of the latest cause du jour). JTC Feb 14 2019 at 12:20 am More exactly her/it’s NGD rally cry would be “NO power to the people” . But true that at some point perhaps not too far into the future God will have to throw up His hands and say “that’s all folks!” (God don’t stutter) and turn out the lights. That should make OCD or whatever it’s name is happy finally. and I for one will be thanking Him for that too. Finally some bipartisan (and bi-species) agreement. GWB Feb 14 2019 at 7:46 am “NO power to the people” Of *either* kind: electoral or electrical. Alan Feb 14 2019 at 12:28 pm or… “power to the people WHO FOLLOW ME”, because progs are sure their personal power comes from their followers (not all untrue; but they ignore ‘with great power comes great responsibility’) John M. Feb 14 2019 at 12:22 am This nation and the states have it backwards – abortion should be difficult, time consuming, and not covered by healthcare programs, and adoption should be simple, fast, and government funded. Old Codger Feb 14 2019 at 2:22 pm While I agree with you on abortion I disagree about adoption. Except in certain rare circumstances, it should not be fast or simple. We’re talking about the welfare of a child here a child who has already had a bad time. We want to make sure – as sure as we can – that the child will not be going to an (possibly another) abusive home. I say that as one who has undergone the process FOUR TIMES! If you knew what I know about abusive and neglectful homes and the dreadfully shocking things biological parents do to children and the awful things poorly vetted foster and even ADOPTIVE parents are capable of, you would agree with me. After the first pass at being vetted I knew full well what I was in for the other three times and yet I went through it. Going through an adoption workup is like doing a slow strip at a major NFL stadium to a packed house where every person in the stadium has a set of 50X binoculars. And even at that a few bad apples somehow slip through. I’m glad I have my two. Wouldn’t take the world for either of ’em. But the adoption process is necessarily a difficult one. David Rinehart Feb 14 2019 at 9:12 pm But the adoption process is necessarily a difficult one. While I agree with the gist of your post, which is that there are some people that shouldn’t be allowed to be parents (natural, foster, or adoptive), doesn’t your final sentence kind of make John’s point? cmblake6 Feb 14 2019 at 12:53 am Idiota perra, los ojos locos!!!!!!!! kadaka Feb 14 2019 at 3:09 pm I just punched this in Google for a quick translation, this page was the first result, even though Ojos Locos is a restaurant chain. Google is watching DBD closely! John Feb 14 2019 at 5:27 pm The CyberNazis by the Bay are right up there with Beijing and the Kremlin when it comes to the “Who will be Big Brother” competition. James Gemind Feb 14 2019 at 1:30 am Need to put AOC in something other than a dark suit. Blue, Beige or Off-White(Face it, she’s hardly ‘Pure,’ IYKWIM.)or maybe pink. I am working on a song to cover all the women of the left, titled ‘You can’t hide your Psycho Eyes’… 🙂 Mike Mulligan Feb 14 2019 at 6:32 pm …but she was in all white at the sou; really didn’t create a pretty sight! JTC Feb 14 2019 at 11:15 pm As long as it’s not in it’s birthday suit…can you imagine that crazy “dance” and those crazy eyes with no place to hide the…crazy? WayneM Feb 14 2019 at 1:37 am I wish it was “That’s All, Folks!” but they won’t go away… Fronk! Feb 14 2019 at 1:45 am A few weeks ago, one of the regulars on this board noted how remarkably close Kurt Schlicter’s “People’s Republic” is to becoming a reality in this country. Having just recently read the novel–it’s a page turner–I must now note that we may never see the lunacy so eloquently described therein as we do in the face of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, brilliantly captured in Panel 2 of today’s strip. Fox2! Feb 14 2019 at 1:50 am I was heading to a customer meeting this morning, and noticed a paper (temporary) license tag on a car: “DBBL D” (or thereabouts, been in meetings). Wonder if it belonged to a reader, and wanted to say “Hi”. Halley Feb 14 2019 at 3:03 am Making Porky Pig seem intelligent and rational by comparison. Quite a feat, Dims. Oh how I hope that drawing out and thus exposing their lunatic side is an intentional strategy by PDT… Steveb919 Feb 14 2019 at 3:08 am I am starting to really really wish the South would have won the war of Northern aggression. Steveb919 Feb 14 2019 at 3:11 am What a mess those northern democrats have made of the United States Of America. Not to mention the left coast. cmblake6 Feb 15 2019 at 12:44 am Indeed.

PaulS Feb 14 2019 at 8:24 am Never go Full Crazy! 😉 Rick Feb 14 2019 at 5:15 am “ … stresses the importance of the State and accepts the individual only in so far as his interests coincide with those of the State, which stands for the conscience and the universal, will of man as a historic entity (11). It is opposed to classical liberalism which arose as a reaction to absolutism and exhausted its historical function when the State became the expression of the conscience and will of the people. Liberalism denied the State in the name of the individual;” From: The Doctrine Of Fascism; Benito Mussolini (1932) See: http://www.worldfuturefund.org/wffmaster/Reading/Germany/mussolini.htm Bill G Feb 14 2019 at 5:46 am Occasional-Cortex is straight out of Planet LoonyTunes, but her beloved socialism resemblees the Energizer Bunny. It just keeps going, and going, and going … And it’s utterly mechanical and brainless. Wotan Feb 14 2019 at 5:51 am And, ultimately, homicidal? Halley Feb 14 2019 at 9:25 am Somewhere in Ayn Rand she blames the ascendency of the Left on so-called conservatives who, by witlessly granting the Left “the sanction of good intentions”, enable the stealth Marxists to get away with their evil in the guise of moral superiority. I think she was right. To this day I’ve yet to hear a Republican correctly identify – in the public square loud and proud – the nature of the Left or its true intentions. Too compromised by the “helping people” charade, is my guess. JTC Feb 14 2019 at 11:59 am No Republican perhaps, but Trump has/does, totally unencumbered by any such charade and beholden only to his employers, America, and God. So far. David Rinehart Feb 14 2019 at 9:21 pm To this day I’ve yet to hear a Republican correctly identify – in the public square loud and proud – the nature of the Left or its true intentions. There are those who make that proclamation, in the public square even, but the MSM denies them a voice. That’s where DJT excels, whether on twitter or the evening news – because of who he is, they are practically forced to cover what he says. TOXIC DASTARDLY DAN Feb 14 2019 at 7:08 am I’d like to hear your comments on Mitch (Warturtle) McConnell’s putting the “Green New Deal” up for a non-binding resolution vote. It seems to me to be a great way to cause schisms in the dem/lib/prog congregation. billrla Feb 14 2019 at 12:09 pm Toxic DD: The Turtle is all politics and no soul. Everything he does is internal to the Swamp, and useless to the rest of us. Cliff Feb 14 2019 at 7:23 am Vote on the GND. Let’s see the votes. Cliff Feb 14 2019 at 7:24 am Vote on the GND. Let’s see who votes and how. Bill F Feb 14 2019 at 7:51 am I love how Dims (like Klobuchar) defend the Green New Deal – “It’s aspirational!”. In other words it’s the same old liberal claptrap: It’s better to think/mean/want good things and CARE – than to actually DO GOOD THINGS! Emotions over actions. Artesia Ocarina-Courtdate reminds me of the classic wisdom (paraphrased): ‘The beginner sees hundreds of solutions, the experienced but a few.’ – because the experienced knows 99% of those solutions have already been tried and failed. Old Codger Feb 14 2019 at 2:31 pm The beginner sees hundreds of solutions, the experienced but a few.’ – because the experienced knows 99% of those solutions have already been tried and failed. Which is why, when Seymour Cray set out to design his revolutionary supercomputer, he hired green engineers right out of college so they wouldn’t know all the ways it “couldn’t be done”. The mere fact that another person/team was unable to accomplish a given task does not necessarily mean it cannot be done. Only that this particular person/team could not do it. Delilah T. Feb 14 2019 at 8:21 am She’s a media darling. She’s up there above it all, one of the Cloud People, while she thinks the rest of us are down here, rolling around in the mud. You do know what happens to a bubble if it gets too big, don’t you? (Spoinkkk!) If she scares enough people into moving toward the center and even over to the righthand side of the pendulum swing, that works for me. E Hines Feb 14 2019 at 9:37 am This also happens to a bubble when you apply sound to it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GyT1dsY0KtA Eric Hines E Hines Feb 14 2019 at 9:34 am AOC reminds me more of Max Frost than she does of Looney Tunes. Eric Hines Precision270 Feb 14 2019 at 10:14 am The more I see of AOC, the more I think she might just be an agent provocateur sent in from the right. Perhaps as a programmed automaton, perhaps as a well paid actress, perhaps she is just a dumb moron with good social media skills. But, even the left is considering redistricting so she can’t win next time… Anything short of death and she wins. Very good pension for line, already… kadaka Feb 14 2019 at 10:53 am Speaking of the same old tune, what has changed to make the proggies think this pig could finally now fly? Democrats Express Openness To Federal Gun Registry JTC Feb 14 2019 at 1:09 pm Just their control of the House. They know it’s DOA in the Senate for now so they’re just playing to their base in media/entertainment/academia/commieville. But make no mistake, thanks to all of the above, their actual approach to a FGR has legs even among some of our own…the attack on the NPA (National Public Armory) has support for it’s “reasonableness and common sense” even though it is maybe our most important gun right other than RKBA itself. Universal background checks are a full frontal attack on the last bastion of immunity from universal registration and a very serious step towards universal confiscation. Defend it! https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/congress-moves-to-act-on-gun-control-amid-partisan-debate-about-background-checks/ar-BBTySRe?li=BBnb7Kz&ocid=mailsignout kadaka Feb 14 2019 at 1:57 pm My first stripped lower, nothing fancy and not that many years ago, was at a local gun shop in a plastic bag stuck on a pegboard hook with other parts. Finally bit, took it to the register, kid there was waiting for the money. And I had to tell them nope, that part needs paperwork first. Why does government keep making me regret not just handing over the cash and leaving? JTC Feb 14 2019 at 3:31 pm Because that would have fucked up the shop and potentially yourself. Some good gun shows still maintain a private table area and of course direct contact with like-minded Patriots are the best sources, patronize the NPA every chance you get. kadaka Feb 14 2019 at 5:43 pm Sometimes being good hurts. Oh well, it’s not like we no longer can find a good poly80 sale, so far. Pete231 Feb 14 2019 at 11:05 am Let’s stop referring to Ms. Diminished Capacity as AOC. She wears it as a badge of honor. She has none that I can see. If she had two brains, then the other one would be lonely. The only reason she’s in office is due to the fact that only 4% of the voters in her district showed up at the polls last year with their eyes shut when they pulled the lever. Now, she’s ranting like a foaming maniac about the new “deal” in which she believes it’s entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end….. aelfheld Feb 14 2019 at 11:25 am The ‘Green New Deal’ (‘Green Leap Forward’?) is the Democrat/left/liberal/progressives going Crazy Eddie.

She’ll keep those nasty jobs away! Polly Cy Feb 14 2019 at 2:43 pm See, deliberately inflating the currency by printing more money is exactly what Germany did in the late 20s and 30s, before they took over the labor unions and ran them as government cooperatives. So who are REALLY the fascists here? merlie e. Feb 14 2019 at 7:43 pm Remember, as votes Pismo Beach, votes Coocamonga…So says Jack Benny say Tagg Feb 14 2019 at 8:22 pm Trump is screwing up signing tbe funding bill and declaring a national state of emergency. He should veto that bitch and tell the rinos that voted for it to shove it. Then he should send it back to congress, the entire body of which is an enemy of the people, and dirtect them to fix it, all while he declares the state of emergency and shows them how its done and done, simply. kadaka Feb 14 2019 at 9:00 pm The media freakout on the state of emergency is impressive, right and left. Mainly because it sends a bad precedent, letting a Democrat president declare one for gun control or whatever policy thing they want. Newsflash, the crazy proggies are showing they’ll do anything they want, without precedent. Bitter Nancy is terrified about Donald playing his Trump card to get what she’s sadistically denied him. Pelosi Warns That A Future Democratic President Could Declare National Emergency To Push Gun Control Pamela Feb 14 2019 at 9:57 pm Everyone call their congress critters. There is wording in the current bill that allows anyone to claim an out of country minor and get amnesty. The child trafficking that will take place is the NEW LEGALIZED SLAVERY. Under Trump!
