    Good morning, buddies . . .

    Well, it looks like Guz may have bitten off more than he could chew.

    Me, I’m not compaining since Wizer might have atoned for the dinosaur thing with his caring for Guz.

    I think Alley needs to take Guz on a time-trip to 2013 to give him some ideas. Guz has been to our era before; it might do him some good to get a refresher in some basic democratic principles!

    RE: people from yesterday saying that a previous strip shows moo already has a constitution.

    This IS, afterall, a comic strip, not a detective novel or something. Is it really such a terrible thing if theres a small inconsistency here and there? Especially if its done in the interest of furthering a plot? While I agree that it wasnt executed in the best way, I do think that it was at least an interesting idea to work july 4th into a plot rather than just have a random july 4th strip stuck in. I think the general idea was a good one, even if it was a bit forced. Most likely this was a new idea that wasnt around when that other strip said moo already has a constitution, so in order to do it she just ignored that one thing. I dont think thats the great big sin some people are making it out to be.

    Say what you may, but I think it’s a pretty neat device to tie in the July 4 strip to a Constitution in Moo. And, seems that this time a lawyer started a positive sequence of events. Pretty good planning.

    Where are the rest of the “citizens” of Moo? Is the little group going to be the only ones to decide what will be in their so called “Constitution”? Not very representative is it?

    The Bender-hell-U-brokers are destroying what remains of this strip’s integrity. Old V. T. Hamlin must be rolling in his grave.

    The worst form of tyranny is democracy divorced from godliness. In such a country the majority, no matter how slight, can oppress the minority with unjust laws and taxation. Without divine guidance of each of its members, qn ungodly democracy will use its government to enrich themselves at the expense of the minority.
    The reason that the American revolution worked so well is because our founding fathers feared God and formed a government based on biblical principals. A democratic republic only works when its members are in submission to the one who made them. Any country that recognizes the soveriegnity of God in its laws and practices has a truly free people, because its citizens are free to worship and serve God.
    When a country and its people no longer submits to God and his leadership has their freedom corrupted to license and soon finds themselves on a downward spiral economically and socially. Instead of depending on God, they depend on imperfect, limited men for prosperity and success. When this happens, a country finds itself in decline.
    You can disagree with me, but consider this. Why has the American Revolution been so different from the other revolutions in history. Where most revolutions have basically meant that the power was only transferred from one tyrant to another, our revolution in the beginning has tried to keep the power in the hands of its citizens.

    Alley and friends must have been educated in the government schools. They think rights are granted by the government. In truth government can only restrict the rights one was born with.

    Ugh ASN, that has to be challenged. Trouble from Egypt is the Roman Terra Hosticus, way back from the days of Omar. Right and wrong are decided by one guy, the head of the state. You are either Pacified, or in a state of rebellion, Hosticus, no middle ground.
    Real freedom of conscious happens when the group recognizes truth exists absolutely independent of what anyone thinks it is – so you have to be very careful how you treat dissent on right and wrong.
    Without that concept you get exactly the same tyrannical – do as I say or die – of the muslim wars, and the socialist revolution.
    Istanbul was that way for centuries, and Philadelphia, and the Hague, possible (?)pre-Mao Beijing. Don’t know on Bejing, definately not after Mao.

    “Awright, Foozy; you can have your dang Freedom of Speech, but this Constitution thing AIN’T GONNA RHYME!!!”

    Their last constitution back in 2010 was written on paper. This is written on stone. That oversized crayon that Alley is using must be tougher than it looks.
