    This is a brilliant visual pun but I have no idea what it’s getting at.

    @ng49. (continued from a week ago)
    You are wrong, I am in favor of the 1st Amendment – the 1st Amendment protects free speech, yours as well as mine.
    You are wrong, I do not think you un-American for speaking your mind, even though it is characterized by hate, contempt, cynicism, and despair – not the best American traits…
    .
    For example, you claim:
    - they [the rich] don’t look upon us as fellow humans;
    - there is little difference between soldiers [US included, I take it] and terrorists;
    - the US [is] a lying murdering empire;
    - You don’t want to be on the pointed end of the US stick of war. Coming soon Drones armed to kill us. You can count on it.
    .
    Have you ever given any thought as to how your words define you????
    A) a sane, rational mind that first considers what to say before expressing it;
    B) a loose cannon fed by an unrestrained and out-of-control imagination.
    .
    The choice is yours…

    @ng49.
    You say “It is my country after all and would like to steer it away from such barbarisms. [A]nd the lack of funds make it impossible to [do] otherwise.”
    Yet you also say “they [the rich] don’t look upon us as fellow humans”.
    Pal, I feel for ya’ – raise funds and you’ve become filthy rich, don’t raise funds and you stay dirt poor.
    .
    So here’s a solution: Do what the Clintons did and form a foundation.
    The money they raise (e.g., from speeches) goes, not to them, but directly to their foundation: They’re poor; it’s their foundation that’s rich (and pays their bills).
    Bill is said to get $200,000 an evening – for a speech, that is (tsk tsk, whatever were you folks out there thinking?).
    Hillary gets only $50,000 a speech (didn’t have as many scandals as Bill, and “dodging bullets in Bosnia” never did sell).
    .
    At one speech a week, Bill makes $10,000,000 a year – not bad for people who, according to poor-mouthing Hillary, were near broke after Bill left office.
    (And Bill doesn’t need a new speech each time – the people who heard him speak in Podunk CA aren’t those who will hear him in Jerkwater MA.)
    See, Bill and Hillary didn’t become lawyers for nothing.
    As for their ethics – or maybe the lack thereof – well, that’s another topic for another day.
    .
    So form a foundation – it will take care of paying your bills and of looking down upon the rest of us as sub-humans, while “poor you” can continue to rant and rail against “the rich.”
    But for your speeches use better topics than “the US [is] a lying murdering empire” and “there is little difference between soldiers and terrorists” – compared to them, “dodging bullets in Bosnia” looks truthful.

    It’s a thin line between love and Hate is the saying this cartoon is based on i believe JLG just so you know.

    I just study the facts and extrapolate trends.

    @bh12

    If forming a foundation was easy everyone would be doing it. And what if I could, who would fund it?
    -
    I would leave it to others. And all I can do is give my opinion.

    @ JLG, korblimee, and others: I maintain, almost always, Sunday Prickly City is the best of the series!
    .
    Love and hate aren’t the only things that are just a “thin line” apart.
    .
    But rather than foster another political argument, let’s just enjoy it for what it is: Stantis at just about the top of his game!
