    Anyone think this might be planned? I mean, think about it: could this much rancor and disagreement happen this long without it being planned?

    Apparently, the door in the cartoon has something in common with our cannibalistic legislature. It’s ‘unhinged’, making it more difficult to proceed.
    It has long been a sign of courtesy and good manners for the person who first reaches a door to open and hold it for those following. The two parties demand to be the first to pass through the door and then attempt to slam it in the face of those who follow. And like the man in the cartoon, the American people wait helplessly – some of them hopelessly – for those “other people elected” to do their jobs in a civil, intelligent, and respectful manner.
    Respectfully,
    C.

    Lately, it seems that Mr. Holbert, who is generally a conservative cartoonist, seems just as fed up with both parties. He has either slid over to the Libertarian side or, like many of us, looks at the political news in the morning and just says “Seriously?”.

    Best outcome is if Congress spends all of its time arguing and nothing get accomplished. No farm bill with massive socialist pork barrel spending attachments to be paid for by the provider class. No illegals getting legal status and even more “free” stuff paid for by the provider class. Students dumb enough to get a worthless degree in underwater basket weaving at a liberal arts college being required to accept responsibility and get a job in order to repay their student loans instead of passing the bill along to the provider class. Last McDonald’s I was at was looking for workers. If those liberal arts recipient class grads think college was too expensive, stop taking it out of the provider class for refusing to pick up the tab. Instead, take your anger out on your college professors for being under-worked and over-paid.

    False equivalency much, Mr. Holbert?

    You aren’t very smart are you. If the farm bill doesn’t pass, a “continuing resolution” is passed that continues all of the pork spending. The reason the GOP house voted it down is because it cut subsidies to rich farmers, many of whom are GOP congressmen. Of course they want the status quo.

    IF we had a parliamentary system, the whole lot would be selling apples on the street by now…..I wish…….

    And, as I see it, its a “pull” door…check out the door jam and the door handle.
    The elephant is stupid, as he is unable to argue his case, instead he justs acts like the 6 year old.
    The donkey is wrong and acts as a 6 year old as well.
    We need a better people.
