Great Cartoon, Clay.
This reminds me of George carlin "Why is it, that people who are against abortion, are people you dont wanna f.ck in the first place?"
RNC conventions are the best example for such horror cabinets...
Thanks Andrew for your Bible-crap comments..
Reminds us europeans of the dark middle ages and its spanish Inquisitors..
... but that fits well to the south where the conservative people are on the intellectual level
of Europe in the 15-hundreds ...
"God is the creator of the universe, the beginning and the end, the alpha and omega, the judge and the jury. Anti-Christians/atheists can't stand the idea that there is anyone more intelligent and more powerful than themselves."
Joe, first reading your comment, I thought that
members of the Taliban are participating in the conversation.
But reading further I realized that I was unfair
towards the Taliban... Even they cannot be that dumb ...
How, the hell, can you have a permit to own a gun.
I thought mentally ill people have to pass a background-check...???
"Gun laws only deter law abiding citizens."
GameOn, also law abiding citizens can overreact, freak out, get depressed, etc..
and then it would be better if there is no gun at hand....
jesse, did you read the statistics about gun death per year:
It is 900 - 32000 !!!!!
I know that your highest number to imagine is 10000 (years) which is the beginning of
your limited universe.
However, I doubt the number of gun owners reported in this article. I know nobody having a gun ...
"More Guns Less Crime" ...
her in Germany we are closely following the gun-debate and we are left with shaking heads and being reassured how dumb the rural population of United Stupids of America is.
But what can be expected from a country where 25 percent of the population thinks that god had his hands in the outcome of the superbowl...
And Andrew is the posterboy of this society. And Andrew you are already famous among my colleagues, since whenever the discussion about the US heats up in our department I show the guys
your comments and we have a big laugh and the definite proof that stupidity can be infinite...
More guns in a paranoid uneven society where most of the people are on meds just means an increase of family tragedies and suicides. The presence of guns makes it far more likely that heated discussions ends with a bullet whereas normaly a broken bone is the ultimate end of a struggle in my neighborhood (in Germany) where gladly nobody has a gun...
But of course, guns dont kill, but people kill, as the NRA wants you to believe. But humans tend to overreact in many situations in particular when they are under stress because of being overworked or other problems arising in an unjust society like the US...
.. so buy more guns and hide behind your paranoid walls being prepared for ultimate showdown with whoever comes to your house...
time and time again I am struck by the amount of stpidity you and your likes are representing.
If I read your words, I have a grand Inquisitor from the 16 th century in front of my mind
speaking the verdict against Galileo and all the others defending the Copernican model. You would fight with all means, and no brains, against any progress or whatsever might contradict the writings of a book written by clueless people.
You are a shame for modern society.... such as the Vatican was a shame for society in the middle ages...
The fact is, about 15% of the population can't be hypnotized or brain-washed. That 15% ain't liberals. They are conservative
Yes, you are absolutely right. These 15 percent are conservatives. The brain-washing they got from home and church damaged their brain so severely that facts and ideas are unable to touch their mind.
How, the hack is it brainwashing if we college professors give the kids an insight into science which they never got before. The smarter ones naturally realize that what the parents told them is sheer garbage.
So, we do not need to brainwash, we just need to teach real science.
And believe me, the first thing the univeristy administration tells you, never talk about religion and politics in classes in the bible belt. The 15 percent dummies would run to the Dean immediately.
I always find it great that parents homeschooling the kids .argue they just want to prevent that their kids get brainwashed from the school.... Logic was never the strong side of the bible-dummies
People who dont know anything have to believe everything
...in particular ferry tales from the very past as the authors thought the world is flat..
Santorum is a perfect representative of the United Stupids of America....
you are absolutely right about Obamas campaign funding.
In my years in the US I learned that two types of people are basically always Democrats,
the very smartest (Ivy-league professors, nobel-laureates) and the very, very richest like Warren Buffett, Bill Gates, Zuckerberg, Soros..
So if the race tigthens up in fall then the big buck will roll in for Obama.
BUT, whereas the donors for the Repubs expect something in return, less regulations, busting unions, etc, the people like Buffett want nothing in return, they are just disgusted by the stupidity floating out of the Repubs mouths. They dont want to spend their life in another 8 year Bush type ideocracy. This is worth millions for them...
So, remember, it was the conservatives who wanted citizens united, and it plays well for them on the state level, but on the big state, when everything is on the line, then it plays against them.
They very well deserve that. Maybe learning the hard way they will finally help to overrule the decision...
Here in Germany we have a great laugh about your GOP-primary, it is better than comedy...
And the CPAC is similar to the gathering of the Nazis at Nuernberg, just empty hate-speeches targeted to the very primitive part of the populations...
