    Not to worry.. trump knows how to fix that scuffle on the other side.. said so during his campaign and a zillion times since.. And with the Evangelist and thus God on his side.. Nothing to worry about.

    I dont like trump’s cheating, lieing, stealing and belittling good people. However I 110 % fully support killin the murderous and hateful soleimanic! My only regret is that I didn’t get to pull the trigger myself! You say I spelled his name wrong! I dont think so!

    Learned yesterday (23 January 2020) from Clay Jones that Morin’s stepping away from the drawing board to paint and perhaps occasionally make a graphic comment.

    I’ll certainly miss his cartoons. Pointed, unsparing, and humorously drawn. Here’s wishing him lots of joy and dough in his endeavors.

    Still relevant 13 months later. Saw a strip a couple of days ago where a guy came out of a coma after a year. He said the last thing he remembered was the Chiefs were in the Super Bowl, Trump was being impeached, and a virus had broken out. The nurse told him to go back to sleep. Wonder why the editors don’t remove inactive strips?

    ‘The Trump monkeys were really running the show’:

    DOJ roiled by Trump’s Big Lie

    Joyce Vance, former U.S. attorney, talks about the extent to which Donald Trump’s lies about the 2020 election penetrated the Department of Justice and why a criminal investigation of what is increasingly looking like a coordinated effort to overturn the election is warranted.

    From my long list of world ending predictions. GLOBAL WARMING TO WIPE NATIONS “OFF THE FACE OF THE EARTH” IF CLIMATE CHANGE NOT ADDRESSED BY YEAR 2000In 1989, the Associated Press relayed a warning from a U.N. official:“A senior U.N. environmental official says entire nations could be wiped off the face of the Earth by rising sea levels if the global warming trend is not reversed by the year 2000.”The official was Noel Brown, director of the New York office of the U.N. Environment Program, who added: "Shifting climate patterns would bring back 1930s Dust Bowl conditions to Canadian and U.S. wheatlands.” Instead, U.S. and global farm production rose, and more than 1 billion people worldwide rose out of extreme poverty due to economic growth. No nations were “wiped off the face of the Earth” as of 2019.

    The same U.N. official who predicted the loss of entire nations by the year 2000 also claimed: "the most conservative scientific estimate [is] that the Earth’s temperature will rise 1 to 7 degrees in the next 30 years.”But looking back from 2019, the temperature rose about half of a degree Celsius since 1989, according to NASA.
