    I don’t recall Mike as being too overtly political in either direction, although he and Kim met at a rally for Steve Forbes’ presidential campaign.

    Mike has been a conservative for years, though not rabid. Certainly less so than B.D. Kim, I believe, is more liberal.

    My company closed my office and downsized me 6 months ago. Where do I go to sign on as one of Clark’s “raging pawns of the überrich”?

    Baslim, Ravenswing: you make it sound as if there’s something inconsistent about not wanting to pay taxes and grabbing every available penny of government handouts. Sounds perfectly consistent to me: “mine! mine! MINE!!”

    Clark: wasn’t the phrase “leftist liberal” originated by the Department of Redundancy Department?

    For the record, Mike started out as a flaming liberal and moved right during the early 90s.

    I’m not a right wing nut Nazi and you are not a lunatic liberal commie. It was nice to see Congress make a small effort at compromising and moving toward the center. Call me a right leaning moderate and I might respond by saying you are slightly to the left of central. Let’s work together and give everyone a tax break. In the Corps, it didn’t matter if the man in the firefight in Vietnam of the bar fight in Norfolk was right, left, black, white, Democrat. or Republican, He was a Marine and we wold get out of our trouble together. Some Esprits de Corps is needed among us AMERICANS.

    Mike’s touching on the fact the heated-up rage kills you.

    TPers are dedicated to splitting the country and splitting thevote and living like it 1959. Only TV 1959, not the real one. We’ve had a couple generations now who have had TV for their baby sitter and think what they saw there in their youth is real. A young model marries a way older Brady. 60’s folks look for Robert Young to vote for.

    we make a half-baked Western actor President then don’t even look at his real record of disaster.

    Any kid will do anything to get on a TV show, including having rampant sex so the media can tape it and say it’;s a great idea. It’s hard to say those facts and not SOUND outraged even though I merely look at it as something we’ve blithely fallen into while our lives were going on.

    GT put mom in the tea party as a way for him to stereotype tea partiers as ignorant & selfish oldster hicks. He continues to twist that knife even after she’s dead, as illustrated in Monday’s and today’s strip. With the new tea-party supported Congress taking office today, methinks that strategy hasn’t worked very well.

    Ravenswing, having been forced to pay into Social Security and Medicare all my life, you bet that I’m going to demand full benefit from them (if there’s any benefits left to demand). But as you know, the point is not being legally able to opt out of the government’s poor return monopoly. Had I been able to put away all my and my employers SS payments into a conservative (sic) investment all these years, I’d be a millionaire by now, instead of hoping that the government’s Madoff-ish ponzi scheme will not have collapsed at the time I’m going to need it most.
