    I saw this cartoon. In the end, Bluto gets chased off and Popeye gets disgusted with Olilve’s fickleness. The cartoon ends with Olive saying…
    “Well, there goes the Navy. But there’s still the Marines!”
    we need a third option too.

    She does look unhappy with her choices.

    We have other options. We can not vote at all, or vote for Daffy Duck (aka third party candidates), or move to another country.

    Hmm, does seem there ought to be better choice. Maybe, it is (past) time for an honest VIABLE third (or fourth or fifth) party. If nothing else, it might cause the other two parties to have to compromise in order to pass legislation.

    Okay, if I were a conservative I’d say that Obama is really Wimpy — “I’ll gladly pay you Tuesday for a hamburger today”. But I’m not, so I won’t.

    We know who the good guy is. And a vote for Brutus is just that.

    Olive has her mouth downturned and one eyebrow is raised. It shows an unhappy resigned confusion.

    Sorry, I never saw anything in Brutus. Olive Oil was always a light weight (but really preferred Popeye). But nice people are always confused by liars because they just don’t understand the greed involved.

    Romney/Bluto remind me of the god Vulcan telling Baron Munchausen and his compatriots about his wonderful new prototype and, in the process, explains thermonuclear war. From the movie The Adventures of Baron Munchausen.

    <!--a href='</a-->

    The problem is I don’t know what I’m doing with HTML. I was trying to follow a formula Dread posted.

    But, while your posts are usually short, such as a teenager might make. You also make more posts here than just about anybody, so your very comment this time could just as easily apply to yourself!!

    Sometimes I have to go back and re-edit[delete & repost] my hot-link because I had a space after the opening bracket(less-than sign) and before ‘a href’ and it would fail. Difficult to spot if it is in the middle of a paragraph.

    Btw, if you want to carriage return, type br in between less-than & greater-than signs, twice to skip a line or denote new paragraph.

    hr in between less-than & greater-than signs creates a dividing line across the post

    Like this above, or below

    The syntax for a hot link is:

    <a href=“http:\\type_url_link-address_here”>Descriptive title</a>

    Also note that the url address is in between double-quotes and has a closing greater-than sign/angle-bracket after it. The text thereafter is just descriptive; and to close it all off: the /a in between the opening & closing less-than & greater-than signs/angle-brackets.

    Has anyone here ever actually watched a Popeye cartoon? The usual Popeye/Olive/Bluto plot formula was as follows: Popeye shows up at Olive’s house and invites her on a date. Bluto overhears, gets jealous, and either tries to steal Olive away from Popeye or outright bullies her away from him; usually after beating Popeye to a mangled pulp. Popeye then eats the spinach that he conveniently carries, rallies his strength (accompanied by a bit of Body Horror), beats the tar out of Bluto, and then sings his pean to spinach with Olive looking adoringly at him.

    Granted there were variations in the formula; but, generally, Bluto came off as a petty, violent, jealous, cheating, bullying sociopath and, by the end of the cartoon, Popeye usually wasn’t much better. Neither one is someone I’d choose as a role model, let alone someone I’d elect to office. (Actually, I’ve NEVER been able to figure out what she saw in either of them. I think that, had she married Bluto, she would’ve become yet another Domestic Violence victim; and, had she married Popeye, she would probably have been neglected in favor of his chosen profession and it would have ended in divorce or depression.)
