Change… I can do it. YES I CAN.
Dude, I wish I could sit around with you and Bob and Flo (And Eddie, if he’d ever get out of the bathroom..) and Pauly and watch the comments come in…That would be great fun…(Oh, Wait, I can!) But I’d love to hear what Kate has to say about it
Shark: “And by equal I mean I’ll eat some of the other sharks to reduce the competition for the rest of you.”
Definitely a Republican!
No, the Great Equalizer would be a Democrat
A giant feeding machine that consumes and gives nothing back? That would be Congress.
Democracy: two wolves and a sheep voting on what to have for dinner.
No wonder those fish are all looking so sad!!!
Shark is the IRS and the bait fish are the taxpayers.
One of the best cartoons on the subject!!And, the shark doesn’t give back.
And the little Democrat fishes will tell him “We passed a law; you can’t eat us” and the shark proceeds to show them he never studied law….
of course it has to be a Male White Shark. lol just the nature of the beast of greed. Republican Congress and so called Vichy Democrats. the Best Republicans i ever saw were Bill Clinton and Barack Obama. with Democrats like that, why bother put up shams like Romney or McCain or Turtle.
and cloak it in Christianity,
Historically, equality meant “equal opportunity”..Now, Americans seem to think it means "equal income; which is ridiculous, of course..Sorry folks, nothing is guaranteed; you still gotta take your chances and work for it. Sometimes it’ll pay off; sometimes it won’t..What matters is you get your chance, not that you get handed your money.
“A perfect engine…” -M. Hooper
And so starts ANOTHER EPIC BATTLE!!! ‘I know you are, but what am I?!?!’
You mean like being responsible for the collapse of the economy then demanding, and receiving, a bailout from the government? Please. Pay attention and stop parroting ludicrous talking points.
That method of gobbling up the competitors is cute, but selfish.
Wait- isn’t this what we did to the Native Americans???
I wonder if Wiley Miller is donating his profits from this strip to charity?
“Some animals are more equal than others.”
Too small in proportion and too large in number.
Perhaps if the prey didn’t breed so quickly there’d be a bit of parity?
The shark is Jim Kerry, Nancy Pelosi, etc. You know, big gov lib dems :-)
Now if only those little guys were piranhas, then that would be fair!
The Republicans in congress are doing their job. Their intention is to keep everything just as it is, unless they can manage to return to the “good old days” of the 19th century, before there was a middle class and when only the landed gentry were voters. And, they have a great strategy for accomplishing this. 1. Disenfranchise everyone you possibly can, unless they are dependable Republican voters.2. Produce ads and media emphasis which emphasizes those politicians who are corrupt and incompetent. This undermines the people’s trust in their government and makes them feel like helpless pawns, so them tune out the whole process and accept the status quo.3. Support the “job creators”, who have managed their affairs so that they are the recipients of a huge portion of the GNP, although that GNP was produced by working people, who are receiving less benefit from it every day. This gives them the money to accomplish the other two goals, and leaves everyone except the “job creators” with increasingly less money to mount a counter campaign. So, this is the way we are going lose the middle class and become a country inhabited only by the very rich 1%, and a 99% who are too busy working two jobs to survive to notice.
You’ve made a serious mistake claiming that gays are 10%-15% of the population.That comes from a misreading followed by a misconstruing of the numbers in the Kinsey Report. Kinsey found that about 5% of the population was homosexual, with an additional 4%-5% having had a homosexual experience at least once in their life.So in reality, gays are about 5% & have stayed at that level, but have in the last 20 years, become more active & vocal.
None of this is to say that what the various Republicans are doing is correct, it’s not & they’re insane for trying to pass all these unconstitutional state laws!
The only reason he is the 1% is because he eats the other 99%
Looks more like feeding time in Sherman’s Lagoon!
Whew! That was GOOD.
Does this imply that the 99% is “not white”?
Get back to the tube denis, or you’ll MISS O’Reilly…
I sure like your style.
Dang. I wanted to laugh but it was too true.
No my party is good and just and pure, the other is evil and stupid and wrong.
(and I bet very few will get the joke)
As usual, the little guys are disarmed.
-Yep, got it.-No, you don’t ‘got it’. Social Security was ‘touched’ long ago, when it was ‘borrowed’ by Congress to pay for various adventures. (Remember when there was going to be a ‘lock box’ that would keep Social Security for those who paid into it, or their widows, kids, and disabled folks? No? Your memory must be short, Trusted One.)-The Affordable Care Act that you mistakenly think will help you is diverting $8 billion from the FICA trust fund that you paid into all your working life, to pay for the expansion of Medicaid and subsidies for insurance for those under age 65 who are not Medicaid-eligible.-To make certain that money needed for medical care for those under 65 is not spent on those 65 and over, the Affordable Care Act sets strict caps on payments to docs and hospitals that are related solely to the goals of reducing Medicare expenditures by a certain percent each year, and not to the actual cost of the procedures.-This is all in the report of the Actuary for Health and Human Services, not something I dreamed up. The Actuary also says that at least 10% of all medical providers will have to refuse to accept Medicare insurance for new Medicare eligible people, or they (the providers) will go broke. So, as you ‘age out of Medicaid/subsidized insurance’, you will receive your Medicare card and find that you can’t find anyone to accept it. Same thing for disabled folks like the 48-year-old heart patient in Boynton Beach, Florida. Medicare denied him access to a heart valve replacement machine while he waited for a transplant. He died. Former VP Cheney got that same machine, no questions asked, while he waited for his heart transplant. Because some animals are more equal than others.-So you don’t “got” Medicare no more, and neither does anyone else who is not already on it. But you’d rather believe that this is just about some greedy geezer who wants all spending cut except HIS MEDICARE. Your Medicare, too, Trusted Mechanic. Or it was…-But like I said, this doesn’t apply to those who are more equal than other animals (anyone in Congress, a President or a VP).-Spending on rebuilding of roads in Afghanistan after the Taliban blows them up will continue; after all, US contractors who subsidize Congressional campaigns have to get their rewards. (Ever hear about the ‘war dividend’ that was going to pay for medical care for those under 65 and poor, as soon as we ended our wars in Iraq and Afghanistan? No? Short memory…. it’s what your friends in Congress count on. Along with your willingness to believe that anyone concerned about the Affordable Care Act is just a greedy geezer…)
I always liked one of the lines a Ferrengi on Star Trek used….“I don’t want to stop the oppression. I want to become it!”
Trusted Mechanic, thanks….and thanks for the interpretation….
dbethke, good point, and thanks for staying on topic!.
Except those look like piranhas.
The numbers from the Kinsey Report have been upheld by later studies. It’s only the loud gay voices that have made it seem like there are more gays than the 5%. In addition, the creative arts are over represented with far more gays than the rest of the population. So you see all those gay actors & think…Hmmmm, there’s a lot more gays than we think. Wrong! There are a number of neuroscientists that have been studying this & most believe from their preliminary studies that there is a link between being gay & being artistically creative, whether as a painter, sculptor, writer or actor. There are even a few studies from the last few years which are showing that gays are an even lower percentage of the population, maybe 2%-3%!
Equality before the law??? There an’t no such thing,and never has been, nor never will be — not tillSatan can throw snowballs at Susie Derkins….
This don’t look good. Run little fish dudes.
