“Because THEY didn’t WIN, so NYAH!”
Well, the were promised a mobile economy!
Because of their mass congitive dissonance they can’t see the cause and effect of what they do. Partially literate, poorly and incompletely educated. Also just educated in things that just aren’t so—-but fits their ideology to a tee.
Stupidity is a pre-existing condition.
Perhaps, but it can be environmentaly enhanced. There sure is a lot of money behind it
those promised coal jobs were MORE important than having Obamacare take care of their BLACK LUNG. PLUS, they don’t want to owe their lives to a BLACK man. i mean, c’mon! gotta live up to our RACISM.
All too many people who identify themselves as political conservatives (don’t ask them to define that term) would cut off their own arms if a liberal demanded they not do so.
Alas, the consequences are further down the line. So, there’s still time to live in denial. The impact of the cuts, will be felt over the coming months/years, with the blame spread as ever to the other side. It’s traditional, these cuts wouldn’t be necessary, if things weren’t so bad….. Let’s pretend, Canada, Australia, Japan, China, France, Germany, etc. Don’t have cheaper Healthcare, because…. er… small government?! Single Payer. Imagine covering their citizens, (We the people), when you can spend money on another Aircraft Carrier. Bonus points for calling them un-American if they object. Why is it seen as being beyond American wit and wisdom to provide Universal Healthcare, when it’s been achieved, decades ago in so many other countries. Has America lost it’s drive to be better, to aspire?
seems like the alt bright movement is a growing part of the alt fact feeding media who dwells on alt and phoney rumors….
Because we really believed that having the government spend more and tax more would work out in our interests even though we had been told forever that government spending would harm us economically, even if the taxes were raised only on corporations and on ‘the rich’. We simply never believed that government handouts were not in our interests because party dogma says this is a lie.
I wonder if people are ever going to realize that telling other people they are “voting against their best interests” comes off as a smarmy way of saying “I know better than you what you actually need”. I further wonder if people are ever going to realize that does nothing but alienate people and contribute to the current political environment… My money’s on “nahhhh”.
Shouldn’t that be the alt-not-so-bright movement?
Robin, Otto von Bismark realized that Germany would do better financially if the people were healthy enough to put in a day’s work. That plan was put into effect around 1910. The US Congress thought it was a lovely idea, and had it all set up for America to have universal health. Even the AMA was solidly behind it.Then – the US and Germany went to war, and the plan was scrapped, for NO other reason than it was a German plan. On the other hand, England started their plan in the early 50s, not too long after they finished off a brutal war with Germany.Of course, we’ll talking about a system that stopped teaching German in the schools while the war was on. If you are at war, doesn’t it make more sense to be able to know what the other side is doing?
Remember government spending is the road to slavery and serfdom. These guys voted for a progressive, and are getting what they richly deserve. They were told they are being smart and modern, but they really are being sold back to the middle ages. Don’t worry, the Clintoons will have plenty of “noblesse oblige” and take good care of you. Laughing all the way to the bank…
about 8 years late with that strip, but it was because voters could assuage their misplaced white guilt back in 2009
He shouldn’t have made such a donation to the Democratic party. I’m surprised they left him with his clothes.
I can’t imagine that the so called alt-right now believes Clinton would ever have been in their best interest.
@wdgnas: that was uncalled for and very inappropriate. Agree or disagree, but cheap shots do not help make your point.
Face it: our democracy (republic, whatever) has been hacked (literally and figuratively)
North Korea is Communist in name, but is actually more of a corrupt dictatorship. Though the results are the same.
“While it is NOT true that most Conservatives are stupid people, it IS true that most stupid people are Conservatives!”
I wonder how all the red state people who voted for Trump will react if the benefits they now enjoy under ACA are taken away?
Because Bengazi! And her server!
We didn’t have a lot of good choices this time, so people voted for someone who paid lip service to their needs. If someone pays lip service to religion, veterans, or white workers, they must be better politicians than those who aren’t paying lip service to them. Politics is all about who is on your team.
The Trumpster pandering to the far right wing fascistic NRA, KKK, Alt-Right, Breitbart mentality—said it all about the Trumpster and why he wasn’t the right person for the office. From his campaign, we should not be surprised one bit that he is under criminal investigation (by day 118 of his administration), that he is perceived by his Peers (Mayer, Merkel, Putin, Macon, etc.) as a fool and intellectual lightweight, that his constituents in America largely see him as a friggen LUNATIC who is dangerously inchoherent (to use Hillary’s phrase)!
Trump voters love him because he only uses one and two syllable words and the rare three syllable ones like, “tremendous” and “wonderful” on rare occasions. They don’t care that he’s incomprehensible.
What it comes down to is that in a decaying empire you don’t have any good choices. You have Caligula or Nero.
MAHA; Making Americans Homeless Again!
Rather than nyah, nyah – feel sorrow for all those who voted for Trump and will lose their healthcare benefits, right to clean air and scientists working to solve diseases such as Black Lung. That’s real sorrow.
Let’s not vote for a party or a person to be in charge but for the individual policies suggested by a committee of elected representatives. This could be on a local or national level. Also those committee members should earn no more than the average wage.
I think I understood most of the comments … But what I still don’t get is the towed camper,i.e., the cartoon itself …. Please, could anybody give a hinte to a stupid and puzzled European…?
Because neither choice was in our best interests
A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until a majority of voters discover that they can vote themselves largess out of the public treasury. Alexander Tytler
A liberal is someone who feels a great debt to his fellow man, which debt he proposes to pay off with your money. G. Gordon Liddy
I believe that every individual is naturally entitled to do as he pleases with himself and the fruits of his labor, so far as it in no way interferes with any other men’s rights. Abraham Lincoln
It is dangerous to be right when the government is wrong. Voltaire
Yup, that’s the kind of ignorami who voted for POS. Too bad the rest of us have to suffer along!
Our elections allow “winners” who don’t represent a majority consensus, discourage candidates of alternative views to be represented, and encourage campaigns that disparage other candidates and ideas. Ranked Choice Voting (see www.FairVote.com ) at all levels of government is a reform that encourage a wider range of candidates and ideas, more civil debates, higher voter turn-outs. RCV envigorates democracy. Check it out, then try it out in your community, and push for the reform for state and national elections!
Always Remember:VOTE for the LESSER of TWO evils!(Whatever that is)
Just for a laugh, do a web search for “antifa chicago hitler shad daley”.
If you are a leftist, skip this one. No need to get mad, bro…
If you are on the right, or just not a radical leftist, it is a priceless bit of comedy.
Could any of you enlightened folks please define the Alt-Right for me? I am a conservative and I hate Nazis, bigotry, and racism. I have Muslim friends, gay friends. I have even have Liberals as friends Including at least three of my seven children. I just grow tired of these liberal talking points. Please share your vast knowledge of all things in detail and stop throwing barbs that are meant for people who feel like you. Factually convince me why I am on the wrong side.
Boy oh Boy – all of these denigrating, condescending, and arrogant comments from the left.
Its what got president Trump elected – that bombastic buffoon is president because of you.
Of course it’s in my ‘best interest’ to have government taking more control over our lives.
Well it seems that any male candidate looked better than a woman to folks in the right places. I’m just enjoying watching these folks get what they were promised starting with “repeal and replace” and “tax cuts.” AND, just remember that if we had managed to get Hillary as prez, we wouldn’t even be having that conversation.
Oh for Fuks sake will you liberals ever get over it. We had 8 years of your goddess. Got sick of your liberal BS and voted for commen sense. I know that part goes over know gets liberal bias head.
