    Great cartoon!

    Excellent! I hadn’t known the Dunning-Kruger effect by this name but I’d often observed how often ignorance and arrogance are conjoined. It’s nice to have a label to attach to this phenomenon.

    Does this one fly on any government property—state or federal—in the U.S.? No serious person is talking about banning or erradicating the Confederate battle flag. The issue is whether it should be flown on government land. Quite a different issue.

    Considering the sorts of cartoons that Mr. Bok creates, I really doubt that he gives a damn about understanding issues or helping those who view his cartoons to understand them. Still, I’ll add my voice to the others who have pointed out that this cartoon just exhibits the sort of extreme ignorance that may well doom us to greater environmental catastrophe than we need to face. “Global warming” refers to the rise in average global temperatures—the increase in thermal energy in the world as a whole. It does not mean, as Mr. Bok appears to believe, that temperatures everywhere will be a little higher than they have been in the past. A few minutes of reviewing serious research (Fox News doesn’t count) would make this clear. It would be nice of Mr. Bok decided to provide intelligent and insightful cartoons advancing his viewpoint, rather than the sort of ignorant biases he often chooses to base his cartoons on.

    This is really vile! I can’t stand Sharpton but really, no one—not even Sharpton—was asking for cops to be killed. It’s really regrettable that simple-minded people feel they have to reduce these issues to taking sides: either you’re with the cops and won’t hear of any criticism—everything any cop does is golden because they’re the “good guys” protecting us from the “bad guys”—or you’re against the cops because they’re all thugs who don’t deserve to live. What a ridiculous, juvenile way to think of these issues. There are, without doubt, instances unnecessary use of force and, yes, brutality by police. And these unjustified acts are disproportionately directed at young black men. You’d have to be blind or a fool to deny that. And, yes, the vast majority of police are good, decent, brave men and women who are risking their own safety to protect us. Both claims are true. Glenn McCoy seems not to be able to hold both truths in his head. Worse, he seems not to understand that those he disagrees with are capable of holding both truths in their heads.

    It’s because so many of their members believe what McCoy is pushing here that the Republican Party is called “the Party of Stupid.”

    Put your fingers in your ears, Lisa, and shout loudly, “la, la, la, la,” so you don’t have to hear that the horribly incompetent, mismanaged, corrupt government program making loans to alternative energy corporations expects to make $6-7B on the loans it’s made. (Check out the story in Bloomberg: http://www.businessweek.com/news/2014-11-12/u-dot-s-dot-expects-5-billion-from-program-that-funded-solyndra) Personally, I’d like to have my own assets mismanaged as incompetently.

    Maybe one of the contestants in this war over territory should have been depicted as female. It ain’t just men who do this. (“On Tuesday, a Florida woman was removed from a flight from New York to West Palm Beach after she “flipped out” when a seat back was reclined in front of her, reported ABC News.”<http://www.boston.com/news/nation/2014/09/02/the-war-the-reclining-airplane-seats-continues-with-another-flight-diversion/TuhYpHAyM086ygqmsJJQIK/story.html>)

    On seeing Payne’s cartoon, I logged on to post a comment pointing out the ignorance it showed. I was pleased to see that others had already done so. Elian was to be returned to his only surviving parent, his father from whom he’d been kidnapped by his mother who wasn’t happy with the custody decision and chose to subject Elian to a life-threatening boat trip to Florida. He was never in any danger of being abused, forced into slavery or being a child soldier, or killed. Yes, he should have been returned to his father and there would have been no controversy over it but for the Right’s paranoia over the failed communist regime in Cuba. The situation with the children from Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador is completely different. Only someone suffering from a blinding political agenda and disrespectful of his audience would suggest that the cases are symmetric.

    Ms. Benson proves that there are still professions (?) that one can pursue even if one has neither knowledge of the relevant facts nor intelligence to evaluate the evidence. America’s a great country; you can always find an audience that allows you to be a cartoonist (or pundit on Fox, for that matter) and pontificate about things you have no understanding of. (And, I use ‘pontificate’ with apologies to the current Pontiff.)
