I'll bet, by the time this 'toon' is replaced by another, there will be an inestimable number of responses. The end result will likely tally even and due mainly to everyone's party affiliation.
However, no one will have uncovered any 'new ground', nor uttered any more prolific arguments in this long-standing debate. And yet, it was not long after this particular 'toon' was first seen that someone said that which needed to be said..words so true, but which will likely not be brought up again, except by me.
Thank you Renfield, for stating it so well and quite a bit more diplomatically than I would have done at such a tender hour, "...We live in an interesting world when some nameless piece of furniture has the gall to call a man who puts his name on his work proudly a coward...."
Bravo, Renfield, Bravo..Woody
Being taken for a ride by any politician is nothing new..granted it may be fun at first, but when reality sets in, the truth is right there in front of you....there is no 'going home' again.
So, what we need to do is hire(elect) the best crew(congress) available, lead by a hardworking, level-headed foreman(president)to refurbish those 'homes' we have available to us today, from the ground up. They must be safe and secure, something Americans became used to back in the "good old days", but have been missing for many decades now.
Personally, I don't believe the conservatives have anyone qualified for the job this time around(that's not a derogatory remark, just an opinion), but if Congress would try working with the current(and next administration) a little better, instead of fighting,bickering and name calling we could get a head start on all our futures.
Not conservative, not liberal, AMERICANS, one and all..Woody
Well, I've finally come with a viable solution..all we have to do is find another 400-some odd businesspersons who, like Mayfield, are good business-people, not all that greedy and willing to work for a mere fraction of what they may be used to in order to set our country back on the path of economic stability and prosperity.
Simple..right? But that's the only way it's going to get done..Good luck Scottie..Woody
Mountainlaurel, your post was 'on-the-money'. However, and only knowing what I hear about Mr. Mayfield, I would say he is one of the nicest businesspeople I have ever heard of which would, if elected, make him a true standout in any political arena.
But as badly as we need more people like Scottie(?) everywhere in politics, are we really willing to sacrifice him in order to finally discover the answer to that age-old question, "...is it the man who ruins the office, or the office which ruins the man...?"..Woody
WAY TO GO, CLAY!! You have reached new heights in metaphor(ism). (If there wasn't such a word before there might be now.)
There is, as attested to above, so much 'bull' involved in the political process, why would anyone in their right mind want to willingly get involved in it.
Scotty, with all due respect to his background with bovines, would do well to continue 'milking' (pun intended) that which he knows the best..Woody
Politics aside..this is what happens when the best of us, no matter the reason, stick our nose into someone elses business. Or as an old sage once pointed out after a renowned MD fell into a very deep hole, "...this one doctor who should have been attending to the sick and left the well alone...."..Woody
Leading by example(??) in Tennessee oil conservation..if only..Woody
I could be wrong..however I'm fairly sure 'mamma' eagle only guarantees her chicks.."Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness."..Not necessarily the funding thereof..Woody
I realize this comment is already quite late, but..it looks like a 'no brainer' to me....Woody
Regarding today's toon..can anyone say "pre-existing conditions?"
Regarding Andrews remarks..even a broken clock is right twice a day..Woody
