Kudos Clay! Well said Bret... I can't believe I'm reading idiotic Republican talking points here. Is StormFront's website down?

Clay Bennett views complex issues in simple one panel pictures. Thank goodness he can draw.

Another keeper.

My hard drive is filling up fast with Clay Bennett cartoons. When I receive a right wing sourced email from a friend these days complaining about how welfare mothers, Mexicans, or democrats are destroying "their" country, I just cue up the appropriate Bennett cartoon and hit reply.

His single panel is often worth a thousand typed words, and this one is among the best.

Good one Clay. This one really gave me a chuckle. So much content in a single panel it's amazing.

Bravo Clay. I couldn't think of a better way to describe these Bizzarro Robin Hoods' goal if I tried all year.

That's a keeper.

Happy Veterans Day to all. I guess by proxy it's also a happy banker and mailman day.

BTW... Those who think legalization of pot will free up law enforcement to "fight real crimes" don't remember the legions of revenours, who's sole purpose was busting up stills to prevent the untaxed sale of alcohol.

The state will have to seek out and destroy backyard cultivators to protect their tax revenue.

Watch what you wish for, California.

Legalization means government taxes, regulation, and limited distribution. Prices are likely to rise significantly, and potency will be restricted to protect the lowest common denominator.

Better is a strategy of decriminalization, one that circumvents jail cells for offenders, but allows for free market development and marketing.

But hey, I'm just an old hippie, so what do I know?

Some may cry foul that a judge overruled a majority of voters, but part of the justice's ruling made the point that we don't vote on what may be a constitutional right.

For the "cake and eat it too" crowd that's a good thing, because neither they nor I would like to see the 2nd Ammendment put up for a popular vote. Depending on the wording, the greater majority of voters favor an outright ban on private ownership of assault rifles. CCW, non-sport ordinance, and unregistered gun show sales were all decided by judicial or legislative fiat.

A woman's right to terminate a pregnancy is another issue social conservatives don't want decided by a majority of voters. The anti-abortionists know this too, that's why they NEVER try to put the issue on a ballot, seeking instead the weight of judicial activism.
