    Awesome Fourth! Another great fireworks show in NYC — and no rain!

    Sickles are way quaint for small operations but for the big time (like in CA) we use a scythe.

    Vis à vis the comments in the last couple of panels — very entertaining Fourth of Trump!

    Great flyovers of war planes to remind us of how George Washington took the airports, and defeated the British in the Battle of COVFEFE when the Redcoats got stuck in baggage check at LaGuardia.

    And who can forget the inspiring ride of Paul Revere, as he galloped across the countryside yelling, “One if by land, two if by Sea, three if you see an invasion of British Airways!”

    Especially inspiring to see Thomas Jefferson piloting his Jefferson Airplane.

    And we even saw John McCain, from his heavenly perch, play his impish prank as he got his hands on the precipitation machine and caused Cloud Nine to rain on Donald’s little parade.

    And all of it memorably recapped by The Donald himself, in his inspiring Forgettysburg Address.

    P.S.: if a teleprompter goes kaput, the speaker is left to show us what they know on their own and Donald made it very, very clear. Time for the 25th Amendment.

    Stoned in ‘Nam was safer than being drunk, saw it on several PTSD creating situations, which, using cannabis today, without enough to be stoned, is the best medicine for it. The feds need to get on the ball and get it off schedule I, and let VA provide it, and for anyone else with the numerous conditions, like pain, it works for.

    Z is a pharmacist, and provides medicine that can NOT kill you. Keep at it guys!

    My favorite part was after Mother Nature took a dump on Trump it still cleared off enough that A Capital Fourth was great as usual. Especially thev1812 Overture with Cannons.

    I thought the Salute to America was great. The crowds proved that.

    The actual phrase was “It Don’t Mean Nothing, (snap your fingers twice) Not A Thing” and repeat it.

    The new normal just got more horrible: Sir Kim Darroch, the British Ambassador to the United States, has described Donald Trump as ‘inept’, ‘insecure’ and ‘incompetent’. Sir Kim said that the White House was ‘uniquely dysfunctional’ and that the President’s career could end in ‘disgrace’. The new normal gets even worse, there is more, google: Trump ‘inept’, ‘insecure’ and ‘incompetent’

    So the best advice in this political time is “close one’s eyes and think of England”.

    The teleprompter “broke?” Sounds like a bit of stagecraft to me.

    In my 74 years, I have traveled, worked, and lived all over the world. I have seen too many dictators and tyrants stage patriotic parades to promote themselves and their repressive regimes. I never thought I would live to see the day when this would happen in the U.S.A.

    Even Richard Nixon’s attempt paled in comparison to the audacity and sheer ego-feeding. political pandering of the Orange Emperor’s 4th of Trump fiasco.

    Needless to say, I did not watch or participate in the Velveeta Voldemort’s French-inspired tribute to himself. Tanks? No thanks!

    Bonespurs lost his place because he was wrenching his shoulder, patting himself on the back, taking stolen valor from all those “heroes” he brought up, and stealing honor for himself for that wonderful military, he’s been destroying.

    Maybe anxiety to have life ‘back to normal’ lulls the brain into thinking it IS normal, while Americans’ glass half-full perspective—a form of entitlement—smooths the way to more denial.

    Actually, we will see the “Fifth of Trump” when he and his family refuse to testify before the SDNY. Let the fireworks begin…

    I think trump did a wonderful job. If you consider that he has the intellect of a boiled cabbage.

    Rather than the fourth of Trump, maybe it should be called the Trump of July.

    That is the first time I’ve ever seen Zonker actually work so that he is sweating! But he does have something there where he tells his nephew to take life as it comes.

    What I took it to mean in Vietnam was that if somebody got killed, it didn’t mean it was more likely to happen to me. Also that the guy who was killed wasn’t necessarily doing something the wrong way. It was pretty hard to keep your head on straight over there. For example: https://www.nytimes.com/2019/07/10/us/the-vietnam-war-was-already-lost-but-i-had-to-go-anyway.html?em_pos=medium&ref=headline&nl_art=7&te=1&nl=tbd&emc=edit_war_20190712?campaign_id=88&instance_id=10833&segment_id=15146&user_id=25ff98eb29e9283fd9004c49c58ce42b&regi_id=78134221mc=edit_war_20190712
