Sendarius Aug 15 2017 at 1:39 am GrammarCheck: “You’re” instead of “your”. Kafiroon Aug 15 2017 at 11:02 pm “congress guys, you are records unbelievable” Does Not sound right. cmblake6 Aug 15 2017 at 1:41 am I do not think that word means what you think it means… Halley Aug 15 2017 at 5:49 am What’s that on the pad? Deplorable B Woodman Aug 15 2017 at 5:54 am The third panel. GWB Aug 15 2017 at 6:53 am Nope. Looks like two people holding big signs, in front of the White House. Or they’re in togas. Bill G Aug 15 2017 at 6:29 am Sadly, we are forced to believe it, since we have seen it happen for far too long. “Once you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, no matter how improbable, must be the truth.” We had considered the truth improbable, but Trump’s actions are bringing worms out from under the rocks of ignored campaign promises and we are seeing just how much of what is supposedly our party works on the other side. eon Aug 15 2017 at 7:05 am The separation of ruling class from the peasantry is nearly complete. As the old saying goes, all societies tend toward developing an aristocracy, sooner or later. In our case, we have a ruling class anyone in France before 1789 would have recognized, although they’d have been astounded at its existence. There, the Jacobins were the torch-bearing mob on the outside, and the Estates-General were the titled nobility on the inside. Here, the two classes are largely one and the same, with the mob being the shock troops of the nobility and much of the nobility having come from the mob. If Hillary had won, by now we’d have the Directory quite openly and the Terror would already be in progress. With the aristocracy cheering as all us “deplorables” were being tried by kangaroo courts, found guilty of “counter-revolutionary thought”, and hanged. In the end, their Utopia would disintegrate much as Venezuela is doing right now. With of course the exception that since they would have ‘”the football”, they could threaten other countries to exact tribute to keep their “Noble Experiment” afloat just one more day so they could Finally Make It Work by he usual method. ( “If we just execute these many more recidivists, Utopia will create itself spontaneously!”) Or else simply nuke everybody else in a final orgy of self-immolation. When dictators go down, they generally want to take as many innocents with them as they possibly can. They can’t imagine Eternity in Hell without victims to gibber incoherently at- and torture. I don’t mind delusional types, Maoist, Gaiaist, or whatever, having self-destructive impulses. It’s their OTHER-destructive desires that concern me. clear ether eon NotYetInACamp Aug 15 2017 at 7:40 pm Blooms. They occur in nature. Red tides. Insects. Foxes eating a rabbit bloom after a plant bloom. In humans we have examples like the Wiemar Republic, Chile, Zimbabwe, Venezuela, Cambodia, Progressives, Obama and Hillary, Uganda, Germany, ISIS, Islam, South Africa, and many more. As long as they can consume, they grow. Then die. Sometimes they can be stopped. cmblake6 Aug 15 2017 at 10:30 pm Negative excrement, my friend. GWB Aug 15 2017 at 6:57 am And yes, some dialog issues, today. Chris’ thumb must be giving him some extra grief. I hope it’s better soon, Chris. MasterDiver Aug 15 2017 at 7:24 am Skye is demonstrating the typical liberal attitude toward finance: How can I be out of money? I still have plenty of checks! Zar Belk! Unca Walt Aug 15 2017 at 8:23 am Chris — Truly, a brilliant overlay of singular (Skye) and plural (RINOs). Wish I had thought of it. JIMV Aug 15 2017 at 10:00 am Sadly, I do not understand the panels this time….??? Spin Drift Aug 15 2017 at 10:11 am The largest singular living thing without a brain is an underground fungus that covers 221 square miles. The second largest is Congress. By the way, I think the Big D is smart enough to keep O’bannon around. He would get to be the lighting rod for the left in and out of the White House. (Note that auto correct changed that to “whore house.”) As to the shenanigans in Charleston, if the alt right stands down and does not have any more rallies, the left will consume itself attacking everything else. Do not show up, be part of the silent majority bearing witness. In time they will attack themselves and eat their own young. Let them reveal the truth, inch by inch. Masada. Spin War Damn Screaming Eagle Spin Spin cb Aug 15 2017 at 1:12 pm Re Charlottesville, as always keep a grain of salt handy: http://www.conservativehq.com/node/26258 JTC Aug 15 2017 at 2:10 pm False-flag activity is a real thing, probably in this case not literally, but through mis- mal- and non-feasance the result is the same and they know it. A little salt often functions to bring out the true flavor. NotYetInACamp Aug 15 2017 at 7:43 pm We are at a time of Reichstag’s Fires. All is planned in politics. Soros has not damaged over 100 nations by his efforts without planning. He is part of many planning our destruction by many and various plans and actions. JTC Aug 15 2017 at 12:32 pm The world is a stage, right now the acts being played out are by choice and by necessity, of the tragic kind. Call it the isms, with all of the worst ones enacted as a smart man said a few days ago, “by all sides, many sides”. But in this performance some in the audience have broken down the fourth wall, as those who purport to review and report it instead help to enable, enact…and dare I say, enjoy it as the Romans enjoyed the carnage in the Colisseum. Others wait to see the end as they know there will be an implosion as all semblance of civility and society are defiled and destroyed. And they prepare to defend themselves from the carnage and to pick up the pieces as the Evil Empire consumes itself. History repeats itself. Let it be. JTC Aug 15 2017 at 1:00 pm Speaking of the many sides, here’s as accurate of a description of it as you’ll see…not their intent, but the NYT nailed it on the cascade of Deplorables right here, bringing up a brand-new and accurate “ism”: http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/theories-abound-over-meaning-of-trump%e2%80%99s-%e2%80%98many-sides%e2%80%99-remark/ar-AAq8yca?li=BBnb7Kz Pamela Aug 15 2017 at 12:50 pm I started balancing my checkbook after each entry to the penny when I opened my first checking account at 19. Same with my savings account at 10. Skye had access to funds that were cut off due to abuse and Congress still has access to funds and should be cut off. The commonality to both is the abuse of the original money holder. We are not Golden Geese and the eggs are breaking or are not being laid. Petey Aug 15 2017 at 8:58 pm Well said. cmblake6 Aug 15 2017 at 10:32 pm God, I so wish there was the option of “like” buttons! JTC Aug 15 2017 at 11:46 pm Dude’s in pain and on meds (or booze, redundant), and still cranking out the art and the snark…I can deal with a few flubbed keystrokes.
