    The “Me Generation” queries the reich-wing uber-archy.

    Just say no to bad politics.

    How does “Deutschland über alles!” translate into English with America substituting for Deutschland? “America over all”? Or, “America rules everyone”? Beginning to feel the resurgent neocon world hegemony in your marrow yet? Like Deutschland of the 1930s? With somebody like Rick Perry or The Newt standing in for UNO who?
     
    If so, then cry, the beloved country. For America is going the way of the Roman Empire.

    Yay for a portrayal of a <ireal conservative – a GOldwater conservative, i’d say.
    .
    Disagreed with almost everything Goldwater said.

    Never lost my respect for the man.

    America, or at least the self-called “conservative” element, has moved to the right of ol’ Barry. Remember, he came out in favor of gays in the military before he died.

    “Let’s shoot for long-term memory” means: “If neocons can reduce history to an exam, then I can rewrite it as a comic strip.”

    Magnify the strip and you will see the whole thing.

    @DTPi and LWP: How about National Defense Authorization Act? It gives the Executive Branch more power than a Reichsfuhrer, including making citizens disappear and declaring private clubs as terrorist cells. LEAP, Law Enforcement Against Prohibition, could be deemed enemies of the state.
    I miss the concept of America.

    The last panel is also an indictment against Bush and his ‘Kick the Child in the Behind’ policy that values teaching to the test. Schools are no longer places where learning is valued. Now the only thing that counts is getting a certain score on an arbitrary test created by overpaid conservative agencies.

    the whole bush admin is a joke. and, the american people elected him twice. for a war, that had no connection to al-qaida. no wmd, and lies about yellow cake uranium.

    Mindless insults to Barry Goldwater (for gays in the military and women’s rights to their own bodies, whom the Republican party abandoned decades ago) and protests against ‘teaching to the test’ (i.e., giving grades without any measurements) are reasons I will never be a Democrat. But I am an Obamaphile, and Extreme Moderate – therefore disliked by both parties.

    Try to clear your head and gather your thoughts before you start typing. In other words… what?

    “How does “Deutschland über alles!” translate …”

    Better to keep German references — and this song in particular — out of your discussion of current and recent U.S. folly. The words to the song were a plea for German unity at a time (1840’s) when there was no country called Deutschland. National Socialism came much later and did not use this song as prominently as you might think. Hitler’s rule was a relatively short, though horrific episode that seems to have taught most Germans a profound lesson: being too lazy or fearful for democracy has a price. The danger in the U.S. today is as you say… and laziness, fear and ignorance could be the end of U.S. democracy.

    Why doesn’t Sec. Powell earn a place in this strip for his oh, so honest and reassuring but lying speech at the U.N. ? W.M.D. anyone?
