I'm surprised these birds of a feather, didn't flock together with everyone else and lay most ALL the blame on Obama.
Ain't that the truth....and when you think about it, a lot more us may be erased out too, just from the residual chalk dust.
Wow, we're all living in some really, really complicated times of communication. The three Gang signs, made me think way back
in the 'e80s and '90s, when my son was a teenager, I'd often give
him three quick signs of "approval or optimism": o'kay, thumbs up,
and victory "V". Now a days, I'd be afraid to start a war with those
same signs...depending with which group, city, state, or country I'm
Like this Prof. J. Rufus Fears says in these in these audio CDs about Great
Books....we need to read and extract as much good info as we can
from the great ;minds or thinkers of all times....and try to live with
wisdom, truth?, courage, and moderation.
Or, like my mother always said: (think she borrowed it from a song?)
Accentuate the POSITIVE, eliminate the NEGATIVE, and don't mess around
with MR. INBETWEEN!
Be happy, be positive, we'll probably get through this mess, somehow.
And, in the meantime stop using "California" as the scapegoat for all our
Clay seems to be doing the best "he can" along these lines, with his
medium of choice: editorial cartoons.
"Well, shut my mouth!" I'm momentarilly speechless! But, at the same time, I can't help but wonder if they couldn't use that darn 'ol sign in some of those underachieving urban schools? Ya know the ones that have 3/4 Hispanic "inrollmints", where they're firin' the teachers right and left We'd see a dramatic rise in test scores. (ps all misspellings are intentional)
Let this be an "object lesson" to him (the Republican / Conservative "Obstructionist"). ."Obviously" he stuck his "left" (elephant) foot out first
(trying to trip up the Democrats)....and got run over by all his own kind*. Which, I guess you could say, "adds
injury to insult".
* the jeering crowd in Clay's "For the Win" cartoon..and the horrible hecklers on the Capitol steps
PS Inappropriate quotation marks intended...as
a "my" form of emphasis...sorry you spell
and grammar checkers.
Awe...sOme!!!! Baby! Obama stood in there against a
a crowd of naysayers, and made the crucial extra
points. The shot may not have been a "nothing but net"
deal; bouncing here and there off the rim of defeat...BUT
at the buzzer he sealed the game. Hooray for him, and
Luckily Clay, your "fan"tastic cartoons don't come in
animated / sound form I can only imagine the "foul"
language we'd hear.
I'll be darn, it must be catching...as I just made an "error" too in my "hasty" attempt to write the previous comment. I stuck an extra word in, the "will",
before the desired "we'll"..... Live and LEARN!
Something tells me will we'll be seeing more variations of the Public Education theme. Your clever cartoons can speak "volumes" in the effort
to see how we can "improve our schools" without hurting the many good
teachers who keep trying to do their job with love.
If you, in fact did make a spelling error, we're not going to write you a
pink "slip" or fire you! Drawing editorial cartoons is a life long learning
process...just like real education. I admire your honesty.
"Clay" is a CHAMPION.... Let's get ready to
rumble! He's a cartoonist with "his pen
on our pulse"! (no matter what the topic)
Did you ever play darts, as each week your sharp, thought provoking cartoons seem to "hit the target". And, like last week's, I'm always nearly ready to roll off my computer chair with laughter (even with topics that are serious and touchy). Play on, as we need to be awakened; so we too can take aim at today's problems. Thanks
