Awesome Fourth! Another great fireworks show in NYC — and no rain!
… followed by the Fifth of Bourbon
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.
These two never leave a turn unstoned.
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 don’t like this philosophy.
So IT CAN happen here!
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”.
Trump even wore his best Flag underwear for the event.
Liked the shout outs to The Lovin’ Spoonful and Johnny Cash.
The teleprompter “broke?” Sounds like a bit of stagecraft to me.
Horrible nightmare Trump’s friend Epstein was arrested yesterday,
“Forgettysburg”: very good!
Stoned out of their gourds, both of them.
I thought his bullet proof shield was a nice touch…so very, very “Man-of-the-People”.
Why do his minders let him speak in public?
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!
Eighteenth of April. seventy-fivelate to depart, and late to arrivein the Airport Lounge,havin’ a beerthe midnight flight of Paul Revere. One way ticket to Concord, Mass.Desperate search for his boarding pass…hoping the Airport wasn’t socked in(diverted to Memphis he’d often been)two lanterns stashed in the overheadhis Sharper Image mag still unread,a bag of peanuts and a Coke in handhe stands ready to liberate this proud land..when suddenly, somehow, outta thin aira fat lady screams “It’s the rockets’ red glare !!”Over Ft. McHendry (sic !) far belowhe sees the star-spangled banner blow..Away to the ramparts he flies like a flash!But that’s enough of this balderdash…
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.
Most of us enjoy a patriotic event. America First
The Fourth of trump solidified donny’s position as “wannabe-dicktatortot.” He FINALLY had his Banana Republic-style military parade! ALL HAIL DEAR LEADER!!!
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.
The Fourth of Trump? Great ’toon today Garry ♥♥ And the comments are off the charts funny — Thanks everyone ♥♥
Sounds like a great topic for a song. Que sera, sera!
What about the British paratroops at Bunker Hill?
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®i_id=78134221mc=edit_war_20190712
