And yes indeed they do have a reason for what they do. And so do I for what I will do in response. JTC Aug 10 2019 at 12:21 am I find that I am often the first commenter when a new ‘toon inspires. It is not that I want to be first, quite the opposite as I prefer to respond to others as well as the episode itself. But here is what has happened over these last years; this place and this creation of Muir’s has become a daily need as it speaks to me as it speaks to so much of what is important in the world and my world. So my daily habits have changed to accomodate the new posting, staying up until midnight to see it where otherwise I might hit the sack a half hour or even an hour earlier. But I’m old and midnight to midnight thirty is about my limit, so therefore I find myself reading and often commenting soon after it hits the presses so to speak. That’s a little weird I guess but I really wouldn’t have it any other way. DBD has become just that important to me and I would sorely miss it if it were gone. Thanks CM. Fronk! Aug 10 2019 at 4:53 am Good self-awareness! Wood Aug 10 2019 at 7:20 am I check DBD first thing in the morning. I have 4 kids 7 and under; I routinely crash around 9pm! Halley Aug 10 2019 at 8:03 am Midnight EST is also someone’s morning coffee and someone’s happy hour, as I strongly suspect we are scattered throughout numerous time zones… Toxic Deplorable Racist B Woodman Aug 10 2019 at 8:06 am 10pm (CST) for me Pamela Aug 10 2019 at 11:24 am While they do have voices, they are not reasonable and are more attune to nails on a chalk board. kadaka Aug 10 2019 at 12:18 am HuffPost provided people overcome by eco-guilt a forum to work through feelings about having kids ‘in an era of climate crisis’ Someone, possibly a guy, got a vasectomy to avoid bringing children into this era of climate chaos. Between this and the abortions I can see why libs need the illegals to replenish their numbers. Better to have a stream of migrants suffer to support them in the hell to come than their own kids. ExNuke Aug 10 2019 at 12:37 am Wasn’t that what France was trying to do with immigration when they created their NoGo Zones for native French people? LowKey Aug 10 2019 at 12:55 pm It’s also the reasoning given by the leftists in German government. cb Aug 10 2019 at 2:43 pm Germany’s “Fridays For The Future-Syndrome” http://schnitzelrepublic.blogspot.com/2019/08/fftf-syndrome.html Doggo Aug 10 2019 at 1:48 pm You skipped a step. The French were trying to bring migrants in as servants. They overshot and the migrants took over portions of the country. The NoGo Zones weren’t official, just the end result of normal humans walking through Sharia districts. Wood Aug 10 2019 at 7:25 am When I was younger I wasn’t particularly interested in having kids. I thought why bring them into this world? Well if WE don’t replace ourselves, THEY will replace us. To an extent there is a duty to leave behind the best replacements we can. Having no kids also promotes a certain amount of apathy about the future… “as long as I get mine, who cares”. Not a good outlook, and it’s shared by too many today. Having kids means we DO care about the future. LowKey Aug 10 2019 at 1:02 pm I’ve put off having children out of concern of the financial aspects of raising them. Popular figures thrown around put the cost of raising a child at around $250k. Just recently I went digging and realized that the popular number is BS as it counts the child in for an equal share of your housing, transportation, and similar costs…things that you’d already be paying for as a single or a couple. I have sneaking suspicion the “popular” number has been pushed as a subtle way of discouraging us to have children when younger, or having them at all. Henry Aug 10 2019 at 4:15 pm “Someone, possibly a guy, got a vasectomy…” Well, who can tell anymore? In today’s America, things that aren’t physically possible are still politically possible. Remember when this was considered humor, before it became a deadly serious part of the DNC platform? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sFBOQzSk14c cz93x62 Aug 10 2019 at 4:10 am Who cares or knows what the hell France thinks or does? They usually serve as a great example of what NOT to become and what NOT to do. Their WWII surplus rifles are always a good deal, though–never fired, and dropped once. As Charles De Gaulle once said himself–“How do you govern a nation that has 240 kinds of cheese?” I am not pessimistic about the USA’s future. Conservative-to-moderate Americans will not sit still for the refried Bolshevism being belched by much of the Demmunist avant garde of late. These same hard-working tax-paying folks will not pick up the rifle until and unless the Bolshies start the music first, and the response to such idiocies will be short, immediate, and violent if the Hammer & Sickle Psychos shift their delusions from pipe-dream status to operational/action. “A rifle behind every blade of grass…..” And that is why the antis clamor so loudly to disarm law-abiding citizens so incessantly–unplowed killing fields are dangerous places to enter. interventor Aug 10 2019 at 9:07 am The present French condition serves as an example of what not to do. French WWII rifles wouldn’t be a good deal. Most are left overs from WWI. they were well used in that terrible, useless war. The EU is destroying the culture of the member nations. No wonder Brexit is so popular, Interesting that the UK’s present prime minister was born in NYC, is a look alike for Trump and, once was an American citizen. Henry Aug 10 2019 at 4:22 pm “As Charles De Gaulle once said himself–“How do you govern a nation that has 240 kinds of cheese?” I am struck by the similarity between this and a notorious Bernie Sanders interview: https://reason.com/2015/05/26/bernie-sanders-dont-need-23-choices-of-d/ Doggo Aug 11 2019 at 12:17 pm His first problem was that he was trying to govern cheese. It’s the French people that need a leader. Punta Gorda Aug 10 2019 at 5:08 am “Struck by a lightning” https://sputniknews.com/russia/201908091076515014-new-explosion-hits-military-facility-in-russias-south-five-injured/ interventor Aug 10 2019 at 9:09 am Not the first time the Russians nukes themselves. A fire in their naval munitions yard set off several tactical nukes and destroyed the munitions for the Soviet Atlantic fleet. John Aug 10 2019 at 3:48 pm Giving in to temptation seems to be a Russian National Pastime, and the temptation to cut corners seems to be foremost among them. It’s no wonder alcoholism and corruption is so rampant. rain of lead Aug 10 2019 at 7:14 am wait, are they really being shipped to sanctuary cities? I thought some Obama judge had ruled that Trump couldn’t do that. Henry Aug 10 2019 at 4:26 pm Perhaps he — like the Pope and John Marshall before him — had insufficient legions to make it stick. JTC Aug 10 2019 at 10:29 am Dang does the Arkansas mafia have operatives in the prisons? https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/crime/officials-jeffrey-epstein-accused-sex-trafficker-dies/ar-AAFCzvI?li=BBnb7Kz Committed “sucide” by hanging while on suicide watch. Arkancide more like. Pamela Aug 10 2019 at 11:19 am I’m surprised he lasted this long past his “Expiration Date”. Henry Aug 10 2019 at 4:30 pm “The FBI does not normally look into suicides at a federal Bureau of Prisons facility, but given the nature of this case and out of an “abundance of caution,” it has undertaken this probe, a senior law enforcement official said.” Oh, the FBI is hot on it. Well, I’ll sleep so much better now. Buck Aug 10 2019 at 12:45 pm Clicked to ‘Radio Derb’ this morning for his weekly Deplorable news cast and he discussed how he lost his handguns to NY Red Flag Laws. The intro screen had a map of the US with red flags on it. It became obvious: the communist red flag of revolution can’t reign until the population is disarmed – hence ‘red flag laws’. Shouldda gotten that signals and codes merit badge… Robert Aug 10 2019 at 12:59 pm Governor Newsom is a Bay Area guy. I doubt if he could find Los Angeles City Hall if it fell on his foot. We’re only the biggest city in his state, but he seems to think L.A. is part of some foreign nation. The good news? Rats are showing up in government buildings in Sacramento, too. It turns out we ARE part of the same state. https://www.sacbee.com/news/politics-government/the-state-worker/article232573992.html WayneM Aug 10 2019 at 4:06 pm The voice of reason… so many jokes just write themselves… If only I wasn’t so distracted by the news of the apparent “suicide” of Jeffrey Epstein which apparently occurred shortly after a ton of documents about him were released… and he was removed from suicide watch only a few short days after his previous apparent suicide attempt… and a mysterious dysfunction/failure of the cameras in his cell… kadaka Aug 10 2019 at 4:53 pm From 2017 and yet somehow still relevant: CDC: People With Dirt On Clintons Have 843% Greater Risk Of Suicide Haxo Angmark Aug 10 2019 at 5:25 pm so Drumpf is shipping shitskin invasives to the “sanctuary cities”? the “sanctuary cities”…that Drumpf promised to shut down? yeah…those “sanctuary cities”. kadaka Aug 10 2019 at 5:46 pm Hey, Hoax Krag Man, been awhile. Eh, what can you say, sanctuary cities are dogs that like the taste of their own buttholes; not reason enough to put them down, don’t let them lick you, sometimes all you can do is sit back and laugh at them. cmblake6 Aug 10 2019 at 9:36 pm They want to be sanctuary cities? Fine, take these illegals and choke on them. Reply Comment Name * Email * Website Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. This site uses Akismet to reduce spam.
