    1st!!! BOOM.

    Yes, I am a child.

  • Crotalus

    I knew they shot the wrong snake!

  • Boobie the Rocket Dog

    Ah, yes. A happy ending.

  • FedUp

    Did I miss the strip where the alphabet agencies launched a contest to see who could become the first US citizen killed by Zed?

  • B Woodman

    Our. . . Time. . . ?
    Truth, he is correct, it is “his” time, But with that attitude, that time may (hopefully will) be shorter than he wishes. We may not kill him or his family, but there are other ways to get a man to a “comin’ to Jesus” moment. And it doesn’t take high tech, either. Broken glass, burnt roofs, cement in the sewage takeup, water off, electricity off, public shaming. No big effort. just death by a thousand cuts.

  • B Woodman

    And I’m REALLY feeling sorry for the hard working, put upon sheriff. That’s at least the second time he’s had to transport a soiled three-letter-agency thug in his vehicle.
    ANd if he’s any kind of hard working sheriff, he takes pride in his duties, and works hard to keep his vehicle neat, clean, and in good working condition. It’s one of the tools of his trade, and he needs it.

    • OpenTheDoor

      It’s the paperwork, not over until you do the paperwork.
      SSS, shoot, shovel, shutup, no paperwork.

  • spin drift

    I didn’t hear no “Boom.” I betcha the ATF weasel just soiled himself, again. Personally I’d drag’em for a while, then bury up to their necks in a fire ant colony, Apache style, then stake’m out and and cover them in bacon grease for the yotes to finish up, then feed what’s left to the pigs. But hey I’m a lenient guy.

    • John M

      Don’t disturb the Fire Ant colony, go ahead and stake him out near the colony, then cover him with a mix of honey and bacon grease. the ants and the coyotes can fight over the scraps…

  • John M

    Trying to figure out who the agent looks like… Eric Holder in Whiteface!!!

    • B Woodman

      Next time, a spew alert, if you please.
      I’m just glad I didn’t have any liquids nearby to spill.

      • John M

        I learned a long time ago not to read the discussions on this strip with any liquids in my mouth or nearby…

        • Snafu F. Ubar

          Amen to that.

          Mr. Muir and the comments are both risky that way.
          I’m more careful now, having laughed out loud at the
          wrong times and places. I skated but no more.

          • Bill G

            BTW, Mr. Ubar, would you know my cousin Bapfu?

    • JTC

      Eric Holder in bracelets…may I live to see it.

      • nonncom

        Amen….

      • OpenTheDoor

        In a just world, Holder would be sharing a cell in Leavenworth with Ayers.

    • No, I think it’s supposed to be G. Gordon Liddy; Caterpillar eyebrows, bald head, “I can kill you before you kill me!” attitude. That was the guy who put third degree burns on his hand when he went to prison, to show how mean he was. I think that he might be experiencing just a touch of over-confidence, considering that it’s Zed, Jake, Naomi and Anatoly he’s f*ing with.

  • B Woodman

    At least the three-letter thug is telling the whole, full, non-sugar-coated truth. I wish the sheriff wasn’t there so that the thug could be properly “rewarded” for his candor and honesty.

  • JTC

    Absolutely beautiful silhouette work, sir, no mistaking every element…and tell me that isn’t a lot less time-consuming detail work.

    That technique is still close to my heart and I’d like to see you use more of it…well, except when the girls are in frame; then it’s time for the finest detail. 😉

  • Shonkin

    Dang! I guess I’m too much the country boy.
    When Jan mentioned Choos I thought she was repeating the joke about what Chicanos wear on their feet. I had to do a web search on Jimmy Choo to find out what the city slickers wear.

    • “Jimmy Choos” are also notorious for not being particularly durable, while absurdly expensive.

      • GWB

        Unlike Hillary, who is horridly expensive, but evidently about as durable as a piece of fossilized dinosaur scat.

    • Pamela

      Figures Hilly would be wearing shoes which would be a family’s food budget for a month, or a portion of a mortgage or rent payment.

      I’ve got a pair of Timberlands and Red Wing work shoes, concrete boots and one pair of dress heels.

      All fluff and no substance she is.

  • kadaka

    At least those ATF guys are nice enough to leave all that extra armament and ammo in those vehicles they keep abandoning on Zed’s property. Which should then be carefully stored away by the family to where illegals and uneducated children can’t get at them, especially not the childish uneducated illegals.

    It’s good to be helpful.

    • B Woodman

      Where does Skye fit? As an uneducated child? I know I wouldn’t want to leave any guns unattended around her (or Liam Neeson, for that matter). WHo knows what she would do?

  • Big Jim

    I don’t think those are eagles……..

    • John M

      …not with wingtips like that…

  • grayjohn

    “It’s our time now”. I can image Zed saw red. I am. SOB.

    • John M

      I would imagine the agent saw red, too – they’re called “Petechiae!”

  • Wayne M

    Somehow, it makes me smile to think of the ATF weasel, sitting in his own bodily fluids on the uncushioned fiberglass seat as the sheriff drive him back to town over that bumpy road out to the Double D Ranch.

    I’ll bet Tucker doesn’t even try to avoid the potholes.

  • Wayne R.

    You’d think by now that the Sheriff would have transporting soiled 3 letter agency pukes down to a science. May I suggest hefty trash bags.

    • rooftop voter

      I was thinking more along the lines of strapped across the hood, ALA the Wisconsin deer transport method.

      Well, not dead and gutted………… Mebbe I had better rethink that last statement. 😉

  • interventor

    Jimmy Choos, really. I thought the fashion forward ladies were into Manolo Blahnik, now. Well, Hillary is a mailbox in a cyber word.

    The ATF’s statement “its our time” reads a bit like “the children of darkness are wiser, in their time, than the children of light.”

    I hope the Hello Kitty bit about the children’s underwear of on the flash drive. One thing even DoJ/ATF can’t survive is child molester charges.

  • kadaka

    You are more restrained than I will ever be.

    Now we switch scenes to the villain’s lair, where the henchman who said that after failing in his mission is unceremoniously dragged away for elimination while the leader contemplates their next nefarious actions while stroking their .

    • Just picturing which of two possibilities I could come up with for that particular villain had me reaching for the brain bleach.

  • RegT

    Scum makes a comment like that, especially talking about my daughters underwear that he has eyeballed, then nothing less than the 3 S’s will do. That is an unspoken threat that must be dealt with. If the Sheriff needs to lock me up afterwards, I can deal with that, but it’s getting done.

    • Bruce W. Krafft

      Shooting’s too good for him RegT; he just admitted to recording minor children in their underwear. That sounds like child porn to me, and we all know what a swell time cops and short-eyes have in prison.

    • gpm

      Neither father nor son could shoot a chained captive. That isn’t how they are wired. Had either wished to have done so, it would have been in that classic capt. Malcolm Reynolds way of, “awake, facing me and with a gun in your hand.”

  • S'aaruuk

    What I love is the demonstration of raw brute strength by Zed. He’s got this arrogant ATF a$$hole (isn’t that redundant?) by the throat, completely off the ground with one hand and doesn’t seem to be straining in the least.

    • Zed has been working out since he had to have help to get on the chopper in Afghanistan. But try to remember that this is a comic strip, even if it is the best one in existence.

  • finebammer

    PLAY FREE BIRD!

  • Bill G

    ‘Our time’. Someone with that attitude should be wearing a brown shirt.
    And those folks did not have a happy-time ending.
    The Empress’ footwear? I’m not sure she did “Choo’s wisely”.

  • Iconoclast

    The Feds need only one set of initials for their Brownshirt minions: JBT. I’m sure there are some honest, dedicated, professional FLEAs, and more of them than might be implied from reported events, however I’ve yet to see any proof to suggest they be held harmless of the unintended consequences of their actions.

  • Unca Walt

    Sumbody help out the slow reader, here… WHERE is the white Holder in the last frame?

    • RayNAiken

      Walt
      Judging the fact he was in cuffs as he was hoisted off the ground and the Sheriff saying he had to put papers down in the truck, he is probably laying in his stained pants on the ground about to be loaded into the truck.
      That is what I imagined from the exchange. Did you notice the sheriff looking away when the agent’s feet were off the ground?

  • RayNAiken

    I thought it was just me when I saw a resemblance of Holder but you all have confirmed what I noticed.

  • RayNAiken

    Oh! One other thing. Why can’t Zed and his friends in the CIA make that agent’s life as miserable or worse? Emails on a thumb drive to me would not be enough. Besides evidence like that won’t be acting on by a corrupt justice department with this administration and a complicit equally corrupt news media.

    • Solaratov

      I doubt seriously that Zed’s plans for the emails involve the DoJ. More likely, the drive – or a copy – will end up in the hands of a friendly reporter/columnist for publication.

      • B Woodman

        Digital is forever.

    • rooftop voter

      Unless said evidence is irrefutable proof of high crimes and treason at the very top man. Think of the “unusual” Roberts move on obamacare or the absolute refusal of congress to hold him to his Constitutional bounds.

      Dirt on the big man works wonders.

      Then even he is smart enough to call off the dogs.

  • Pamela

    Something didn’t quite register last night. Today it does.
    As interventer and RegT already noted about the batf pervs recording of the Twins in their underwear. If they have been sharing that in any way shape or form, that’s trafficking of Child Porn. It crossed borders, that’s International trafficking of Child Porn.
    Stinky there is going to wish the snake bit him instead.

    • gpm

      Unless they piss off the wrong people and become expenexpendable, they are immune to child porn laws. It is one of the perks of being a JBT!

      • cb

        Seems as if Feds have been welcoming pervs for so long word has got out: US Border Patrol: Arrests of sex offenders crossing Texas border spike.

    • interventor

      If DoJ refused to prosecute for child molestation — there is always Texas. A jury would probably take enough time to elect a foreman and find them guilty. If their lives would be bad in a federal prison, think Texas prison. BTW, be very careful dealing with Texas liberals — they may be liberal, but being Texans, they may be armed.

  • Uffdaphil

    Agents are minions. Going after them is ineffective whack-a-mole.

  • chester arthur

    The ATF thug looks a lot like the parasite…husband of Gabrielle Giffords. The ex-astronaut turned self-promotion machine.Mark something,I just don’t care enough about him to look it up.

  • B Woodman

    I hope Zed broke the JBTs (nicely played, Iconoclast) neck, so that he is still alive, but a helpless drooling vegetable, wheelchair bound, having to be fed at one end, and cleaned at the other, unable to speak, write, or otherwise communicate what went on at the DD Ranch.

  • B Woodman

    It’s about time to start playing “The Public Shaming” game, via the internet (while we’re still able). Start a website, and start listing names, addresses and pictures of thugs (agents) of any/all of the three letter agencies, EVEN IF THEY HAVEN’T BEEN CONVICTED OF A CRIME.
    “Do you know this man? He lives near you. He works for the (xxx) agency, and this is what the (xxx) agency has done in your area lately.”

    I think you’all get the drift.

    • I did that way back in the ‘hippie’ days to the undercover FBI and local police narcs. I worked in a bar and every time I saw two of them come in, I’d take my tray and my little 110 Pocket Kodak over to their table and fire off a flash picture before taking their orders. When I had a roll full, I’d take the cassette down to the Free Press. Dunno what they did with them . . .

      Then, for some reason or another, they decided that they were going to ‘get me’ on one thing or another. Everyone knew I had a lot of guns that I’d brought back from Germany in the early sixties. First, some black dude with the street name ‘Brother Rat’, corn rows and all, wanted to know “. . . if I was ‘down with the Revolution and might sell him some of my guns.” I said, “No, I’m a conservative Republican.” A few days later he asked me if I wanted to buy a ‘real AK-47’ with a couple of tins of military ammo. Again I said no, that is illegal. I had seen his photo in the local paper as some FBI ‘grip and grin’ ceremony getting an award for his work for the agency. Easy enough to recognize in suit and tie and without the dashiki.

      Being the honest, public-spirited gal that I’ve always been, I called the FBI to report someone trying to sell full-auto weapons. An agent took me out to breakfast to take my ‘report’ and asked me to describe the guy. I said, “I don’t need to describe Brother Rat, y’all just gave him an award the night before last.” Guy turned this gorgeous shade of purpley-red,and jumped up to leave, sticking ME with the tab. As soon as he headed for the door, I screamed, “That dude is pulling a dine-and-dash on a twenty dollar tab!” They grabbed him before he got to the door, the manager was already on the horn to the cops. When the squaddies got there he refused to identify himself still! Off he went in the squad car in cuffs.

      “Further, deponent sayeth naught,”

      They kind of cut back the more obvious moves of their vendetta, but now, almost fifty years later, I still get ‘offers’ to do something illegal. It used to be drugs and such-like, now they are back to guns and various Form-4473 violations or even last year an offer of a NFA MP-5! do these clowns think I’m getting soft in the brain? I’m72 years old and STILL meaner than a snake. Damn them all to the deepest Hell G-D ever created.

  • Bad Cyborg

    Meh. Ok, so this one FLEA won’t come back (maybe). Problem is there’s so many OTHERS who’d be freaking delighted to take his place. One thing in favor of SSS is that eventually the bosses will run out of willing coyote (or feral hog) fodder.

    I’d kinda like to see those barstids dropped naked south of the brorder with the word “FEDERALE” tattooed across their chest and back. Gotta figure fthose cartel boys’d have a high old time with ’em.

    • FedUp

      I wouldn’t use Federale, just etch “DEA” in their obviously gringo foreheads.

  • John M

    Sorry, I got lost somewhere – JBT?
