Typical. You’re off GoComics for a day and and you miss your golden moment!
somebodyshort, the hands crack me up too!Thank God the guy in front of the guards wasn’t wearing tighty whiteys…
The hard lookin’ guard with the awesome gun in front? They say he collects pollywog statues and sculptures. They say he’s kind of a sensitive guy….Cries easily, they say. Raised twenty seven foster children at last count…You just don’t know do ya, eh?
Governments and their functionaries are not noted for theirsenses of either humour or irony….
FREE breast exams and colonospothies.
Freedom isn’t free. They take cash, credit, or debit!
Or to put it on the web.
We have the freedom to bare arms..Happy 4th everybody. Thanks for the laughs, points to ponder, and nice artwork Wiley. Have a great holiday.
Reminds me of the shock (figurative not literal) I got with the examination I had to go through to see the Liberty Bell.
Just remember, “whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it; and to institute new government…”
gmartin, hey, just because you make fun of something in life doesn’t mean you want to get rid of it. If Wiley did a cartoon about a crowded bus, would that mean he wants to get rid of buses? No. Crowded buses are funny….Baby crying on an airplane? Eliminate the baby? The plane? Or laugh at the joke! Your choice….
Number six, I feel ya….I totally missed the chance to be the one who pointed out that Abe was Dabney…My heart aches to this day…..
noticed a security camera aimed in the cavity search booth.
I guess freedom is just another word for nothing left to lose.
I went just for the cavity search, not what I expected…bummer
Perhaps you should read the cartoon again. Where do you see an airport?
If you think the nonsense in the airport has anything to do with security, or an aircraft’s safety then you are seriously deluded.
“They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.”
A dream of ‘tea party’ types and other ‘conservative’ paranoid extremists….
Wiley, I did notice there was no airport. It’s the town’s local Fourth of July party. It is funny in a way but that is the price to be safe now.Downtown at Fair Park in Dallas they look in all the handbags and run a wand around you for metal detection.And its all FREE.Have a great Fourth everyone or at least try to.
@Omnius. NO ONE on either side of the political fence has any claim to the high moral ground. NO ONE!! Rationality has gone the way of the dodo bird and we are all losers in this game.
You know, G, it appears your life’s ambition is to die in bed. Viewing cowardliness as a virtue and being mindlessly subservient goes a long way in achieving that goal, doesn’t it?
" Freedom’s just another word for Nothin’ left to lose…. "HAPPY 4TH OF JULY
Oh man, this comic was in my head before I even read it here! So many places around the country now, you can only celebrate your freedom in a government-approved manner….
Support your right to arm bears!
“Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom. It is the argument of tyrants; it is the creed of slaves.” — British statesman William Pitt (1759-1806)Now go look up the odds of actually being killed by a terrorist bomb, gmartin997.
I’m with you there. I am the one getting on the plane, so I don’t ever complain about being searched.
#gmartin – man up. No matter what you do you will die one day, the day God says “Times up!” Good news is nobody dies before their time nor a moment later. So live now. And I choose to live free even if it means risks of terrorist. I’m not afraid of any lil ol terrorist, I have an ex-wife.
I love that Wiley reads the comments on his comic page! Just wanted to say love the comic and thank you! Hope you have a wonderful 4th!
My small town fairs are still small town stuff, so I don’t get cavity searched here, yet.
Second the motion, only with the proviso to include the possibility of heads IMploding !
(Overthinking vs. Underthinking, etc)
Maybe you didn’t hear about 9/11/01. Look it up.
If the name you are looking for is Hadji (like Johnny Quests’ friend), he was a Hindu, not a Muslim.But wouldn’t want you to have to go without making a snotty and inaccurate comment.
There is NO humanity in humans. We are all only "talking monkeys’.
Good job Wiley. Unfortunately it’s too true. With the help of our Government, the bad guys won. I love my Country , but fear my Government
I’m not sure if this is the exact quote, but here goes; " One who is willing to sacrifice personal liberty for a measure of safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety" B. Franklin.
How many studies—independent and federally-funded—have shown that these crazy security measures JUST DON"T WORK? The human element is just too big a chaos factor to ever overcome. Lax security workers, the number of travelers, nothing can prevent the truly ingenious and dedicated from doing nasty things or ensure nothing dangerous gets by security. But if you truly endorse such over-the-top, invasive security (which technically violates the Third Amendment) then so be it. That’s your opinion and you’re welcome to it.
.And people, the proverb is, “Any society that will sacrifice a bit of liberty for a bit of security will gain neither and lose both.” – Benjamin Franklin
Love Henry and Wolfie!
A perfect 4th of July strip.
Wiley… you’re the best. Hope you Fourth celebration is da bomb… Oops… wrong choice of adjectives… make that a blast… Oh no… thank won’t work either… Oh well… have a good time (is it safe to say that?).
Happy birthday, all ya all…
Vest bombs aren’t nealry as bad as suppository bombs!
