2020 in a nutshell!
I’ll make it political. Looks like the trump administration.
Trump says we are finally turning the corner on the pandemic. He uses the exact same language as Herbert Hoover, who for three years after his policies (combined with his Republican predecessors Harding and Coolidge) collapsed the economy in typical Republican outcomes) kept saying, “Prosperity is just around the corner.” Literally the exact same language.
Trump has been saying the same thing since March. Well, at least to the public. To Bob Woodward, he admitted back in JANUARY that he knew the new coronavirus was transmitted airborne and was FIVE TIMES more deadly than even the “most strenuous” flus. To insider traders among his closest Wall $treet donors, he gave inside information about the financial impacts they could use to sell of stocks that were at risk and buy into industries (like hand sanitizer and paper towels) that would become more profitable.
Trump was saying it would be over before Easter, or “in a few days” or “it will go to zero” it will be “like a miracle” but all the time he was lying and he knew it. He was playing golf and holding rallies, putting the supporters he calls “disgusting people” at risk of their lives, but DID NOTHING because he did not want to threaten the election or the economy, but instead drove both over that cliff in Wiley’s drawing.
In Doctor Who… they had a GPS system known as ATMOS. The villain kept getting rid of people by having the system dive them off a cliff, into the river, or just lock them in the garage and make exhaust. The way SF likes to pick on all of this… maybe we should take note of any chance that the AI will think the world would be better off without us.
This will be a real test for the airbags.
The sign should say GOP, not GPS.
More truth in cartoon form.
Are Thelma and Louise aboard? And the Orange Plague?
On November 3rd let really turn the corner. VOTE like your life depends on it. Because it does
Trump Disciples are incapable of making any connection between this cartoon and Their Messiah’s repeated pronouncements that “we have turned the corner on the coronavirus”.
They have also never figured out that they are the ones who make up the group of “those disgusting people” that trump is relieved that he no longer has to shake hands with.
Will Trump will fire Bill Barr and appoint Rudy as ‘acting’ Attorney General?
He’s got only two weeks before the election.
I can see clearly now, the ground is gone…
Down is a direction!
Ha’Pence is driving and Buttercup is translating the gps, which is tuned off earth.
GPS or GOP?
I was in the wilds of Scotland on a motorcycle with another guy following on his. There are NO SIGNS there. I stopped on the road and my friend did too. He asked why did I stop? I said where is the road? It was a switchback, if I had gone 400 ft further, I would have dropped 100 ft off a cliff!!!
We have turned the corner. We just took a left when we should have taken a right. Things are getting worse – if there is any truth in numbers.
I wonder what a driverless car will do when the GPS does that kind of thing.
I blame Mitch and the GOP Senate for letting their wild dog run loose instead of chaining him to a tree in the back yard.
Trust, but verify. Good words to live by. And stay alive by.
on target – clever – you don’t even have to say who’s driving!
Someone thinks we’ve “turned the corner”. I think “someone’s” gone round the bend.
He keeps pressing for “Herd immunity” which so far has proven very elusive in both Sweden and Spain and certainly in the United States.
Our no fault political system be it right, center or left.
My 10 year old granddaughter asked what it was, when I pulled a street map out of the glove compartment. On a related note, when I overheard a 20 year old say before the internet people never know what restaurants were in the town – and I mentioned the Yellow Pages – she stared back cluelessly.
So much for taking a break from depressing current events.
I’ve read stories of trucks hitting low-clearance bridges on parkways, because they were mindlessly following the GPS. Which really makes me wonder about their brains.
Unfortunately, we’re all in the car with him
Hopefully DDWiz is on the Biden debate prep team.
The Trump’s GPS ( Gormless Propaganda Speak ) have been “turning the corner” all year – driving the rest of us right ’round the bend!
Folks, if you look out your left window at the roadway point we exited, just around the bend where we started this downward flight you will see Dr. Fauci at the guardrail shaking his head and holding a sign that says “another White House event that will not end well”.
The administration could not bring themselves to make a left turn and drove the country off the covid cliff.
be glad when Nov 3 is over. i hope.
To the bowels of hell?
Well said, Wiley.
and it’s time to get him out of the drivers seat and behind some bars where he belongs
“I don’t think the road-sign knows…”
GPS: “New direction – turn UP before you reach the bottom.”
Was that Mr. Bond’s Aston Martin?
Wait for one second:
If they “turned the corner” as the GPS said, they must have been coming from the left.
DD Wiz, thank you.
Are we there yet, Are we? Are we? not even f****n close….
Reminds me of trying to get home from Salem Oregon after viewing the total eclipse of the sun using Google’s GPS. Only problem, everybody else was following the same directions. Should have stayed on I-5 North instead of driving all over three counties for hours to “Save three minutes by turning right in 500 feet.”
