    …but why does Frazz seem to be wearing a sports bra underneath it?

    If he couldn’t find a lobbyist’s pockets to warm up his hands, he doesn’t deserve to be in Congress. Let’s review how the system works: Congresscritters do not steal directly from the public; that would be illegal. They instead take perfectly legal bribes campaign contributions from lobbyists, and then assure that appropriation-and-spending bills funnel money to the groups the lobbyists represent (e.g., the 2000 tanks that the Army doesn’t need or want, but are still in each year’s military appropriations bill because there’s a factory in PA with a good lobbyist).

    Nah. That would only be the case if at least one of the castaways were black. See yesterday’s “Making It” comic.

    Think tanks crafting pseudo-science are so outdated, now that the Supreme Court has made it the law of the land that sufficiently strong belief trumps actual verifiable facts.

    “Street-level FBI agent”? Heck, anybody with a computer and time to go through the Wikileaks stuff knows about Thunder Island…

    It’s (mostly, though the right wing keeps bringing it up like a bad burrito) forgotten because it’s not the truth. There is not, and never was, any federal law or regulation requiring banks make sub-prime loans. There are regulations forbidding discrimination against minorities who can qualify for regular mortgages. Many ineptly-run banks used these regulations as an excuse when they went under due to their reckless speculation, but the real cause of their failure was that they’d bought Wall Street’s line that they could now write mortgages to people who had no job, no income, and no assets (the infamous “NINJA” loan) without assuming any risks.

    Oh, wait, didn’t Marx (or maybe Lenin) say, “from each according to his ability…”? Does this mean Ayn Rand was secretly a Commie?

    And we all know Netanyahu is a completely unbiased and objective observer.

    The Enlightenment, which spawned our system of constitutional representative democracy, is now officially over. It had been in the process of ending for a while, most notably with Karl Rove’s infamous statement that “we make our own reality,” but in the “Hobby Lobby” decision the Supreme Court officially established the policy that Belief trumps Fact (when they said that HL could refuse to pay for drugs that HL believed were abortion drugs even when the facts clearly said otherwise). That pretty much drove a stake through the heart of Reason, Science, Objectivity, and all those other Enlightenment ways of thinking that are needed for the government created by our founders to function.

    Well, it had a good run. Greek democracy didn’t last very long either.

    The National Weather Service let the cat out of the bag a month or so ago when they said that the unusually cool and wet summer in the Midwest is the continuation of the polar vortex derangement that gave us that bitter cold and snowy winter. The previously-unusual pattern never really ended; things just warmed up enough that we didn’t see it as winter in July (though Chicago did have a couple hours of serious snow in mid-May this year). Makes sense: the polar vortex derangement (as well as El Nino, which also gives the Midwest cool, wet summers) is driven by hotter water in the western Pacific… and that water’s continuing to get hotter still.

    Global warming science says that the planet as a whole will get warmer as a result of greenhouse gas emissions. We are finding out that this means some parts of the planet are going to get a whole lot warmer, some only a little, and some will actually get colder as the systems that move heat around change.
