    Best kind.

    Here’s the good news for the climate-change deniers: you’ve won. We have pretty much crossed the threshold and runaway warming is beginning. Even a full-scale mitigation effort now, with everyone on board, would slow but not stop global catastrophe. We may as well do nothing. Congratulations.

    I agree. The art work and design are first rate. He speaks the language of the comic strip fluently. But it’s as if he’s approaching the humor formulaically — the gags are designed as much as the artwork. (“This will be funny!”) It feels contrived, as compared to Calvin or Peanuts, where the story flows on its own.
    That being said, I can look at this strip forever. Today he lavishes the same attention to the male body as he usually does the female. (He did two versions of many of these, one for the “family newspaper” and another for the ages. Pogo did the same.)

    It often seems to be a double-translation problem, but other times the language is correct for the period. “Nix!” (from the German “nicht”, not) appears frequently here.

    Answer: they don’t. I’ve lived in Europe. Everyone is covered for everything and they pay half of what Americans pay. Some elective surgery has waiting lists, but you’re always free to pay extra for private treatment. But the Republican idea of people dying all over Europe waiting for necessary surgery is about as true as WMDs in Iraq. It just ain’t so.

    I remember this strip. I had forgotten how crappily it was drawn back then. I think GBT still drew it himself at the time.

    Actually, it was three SEEDS they found, and declared him a dealer. But they illegally bugged his place and the judge had to throw it out.

    Those are no impediments. Walk around the street asking people about Benghazi and you’ll get nothing but blank stares. Rose’s Law Firm? What is that? No, Hillary has the front door if she wants it. She tops all the polls.

    “It’s not government’s job to make sure people have healthcare.”
    The Preamble to the US Constitution, our most basic and sacred document, states that part of its function is to “promote the general Welfare.” Yes, Welfare, upper-case and all, is enshrined in the Constitution. The law passed Congress, was signed by the President, upheld by the Supreme Court. Obama ran for re-election on keeping Obamacare, Romney ran on repealing it, and Obama kicked his patootie. You lost this one, and we’re all getting health care. Sorry. Move to Chad. They don’t have national health there. (It took me half an hour to find a country with no national health.)

    You nailed that one, man.
