    Yes. He’s trapped in his car—every time he opens the door, someone with a blower suddenly appears and blows leaves, grass, dirt, rocks and small children into his car.

    I just gotta—“I have in my hand, a list ….”

    Florida’s massive voter fraud might be related to its massive number of welfare drug-users. Koch brothers were exposed in Oregon, as were Michael Bloomberg and John Arnold’s attempt to “fix” our elections system. Maybe you ought to “pass the grass legislation” and just chill.

    Scaling back our military needs to be done, but it needs to be done carefully and thoughtfully. The first President Bush cut too deeply after his success in Iraq. Who knew that his son would need the extra 50,000 soldiers( the Surge) that should have been sent in the first place. Had “W” listened to his first generals, he could have closed out the Iraqi campaign and brought the military home before his administration ended. That would have probably cut over a trillion dollars(a conservative estimate) from the cost and made scaling back less urgent. We need to examine which cuts will be most effective for saving money and maintaining a ready military. This means looking closely at each program and not just flailing away at the entire structure.
    Argument for welfare cuts follows the same argument. It needs done but carefully and effectively.
    Actually, there is a argument here that applies to our entire government.

    It’s a comic strip interpretation of Romeo and Juliet—interesting for the lushness of his work and the fact that McE retains the language.
    This is why I don’t usually read the comments sections for the strips. I get distracted from the point the author is trying to make—“shift scarce resources from instruction to marketing.” Our public schools, at all levels, fail to shift resources. Sports programs(read football marketing) are huge moneymakers but very little of that money finds it way to instruction.

    (1) You’re right.
    (2) I agree. And I like that there are no distractions from the art.
    (3) Me, too.
    (4) And I notice that there seems to be a dearth of comment on the success or failure of for-profit education.

    .001% death rate—medical mistakes by doctors/nurses.
    .00026% death rate—vehicles
    .000008% voter fraud—numbers based on urban legend
    Which of these should most occupy the thoughts of our concerned politicians?

    C=Often misfires even with proper maintenance.

    Civilian or military, rape is a crime we need to punish. But more, we need to re-instill the ethical/moral standards that we expect soldiers(and officers) to abide by.

    bwalk7217—A leader doesn’t “recommend” that his soldier go outside chain of command, he leads that soldier.

    Freedom of speech, religion, and assembly are absolute rights. There is no prior restraint. The laws are enforced for abuse of those rights. The second amendment is likewise absolute. We can pass laws against the abuse of that right, but any law that allows prior restraint is probably not what our forefathers had in mind.
