I think this cartoon is about the Marine Corps anniversary.
The United States Marine Corps Birthday is celebrated every year on 10 November with a traditional ball and cake-cutting ceremony. On that day in 1775, the Continental Marines were established.
Thank you @Silly Season. I’ve been posting happy birthday wishes to the United States Marine Corps in every political cartoon page that’s been updated today. So …Happy Birthday United States Marine Corps for 242 years of Semper Fidelis service.
Happy birthday to the Navy’s police force.
A RATIONAL birthday wish from those who hope the U$ isn’t using their Saudi proxies to start YET ANOTHER war in the Middle East (in Iran and Lebanon). Courtesy of Tom Lehrer.
As long as he wasn’t taken prisoner, and is a white guy. And he can’t have any medical needs, or need to get a job or an education. Sure, the US welcomes him home with open arms. It’s not like he’s transsexual or a woman.
Stop spending money on weapons and start spending money on support. The Peace Corp should have been the direction of the US instead of the military.
Boy when Glen McCoy has nothing to say he has nothing to say.
Glen, Glen, Glen, Glen, Glen.
Worship of the military is the fetish of dictatorship. Statesmen and visionaries build this country — not soldiers. It’s what made Mao Tse-Tung’s China great. And you think it’s the highest epitome of patriotism. Did you know it was Mao who said ‘political power comes from the barrel of a gun’? Do you even care, so long as you can see goose-stepping troops in uniform? You don’t even realize you’re decadent.
And Glenn, thank you as well. Without you the trolls would wander aimlessly. Great job throughout the year. Keep it up!
Clay, glad Glenn gives you purpose.
Volunteer at a VA or a Foreign Legion, and not just on Veteran’s Day.
