A quiet, fireside family evening. A son visits his family. Hefty silence reigns.
Great one, this! I can actually feel the tension in that room.
And I love the skull and crossbones, mounted on the wall over Babs’ head.
Oliphant had a blast with the chimp. Even the dog doesn’t like him.
His Reagan ed. cartoons were some of his best.
Why do I have the feeling Dubya never wants to ever be left alone with Jeb?
Next, those ‘injuns’ will probably rob a ‘paleface’ grave and see how YOU like it.
They say that most presidents grow in office. W shrank!
Did anyone ever notice that wreckage starts with “W”? footnote 1. here, that was the title of a book .
Hate and confusions still reigns among those whos’ celebration has been dampened….
Mabe Punk got the day off?
Didn’t care for the company?
LLR, I don’t think Punk is in this one; maybe because the little guy in the chair is a p—
Moonbat editorial cartoonist Pat Oliphant depicts GW Bush as a monkey…oh my goodness!!!!Where’s the outrage that the left had over the NY Posts “racist” cartoon? Oh that’s different. I hope Oliracist does another one on Condi Rice.
W is not pictured as a monkey but as a teeny weeny little man.
Oh Boy “moonbat” intellect again.
What’s a moonbat ( I never read THE WATCHMEN )??
According to Wikipedia, a moonbat is the liberal equivalent of a wingnut.
frank14, how do you get monkey out of this?
Re: “moonbat”–for those of us who read “This Modern World” the definition of moonbat comes from the characters Conservative Jones and Moonbat McWacky. See wikipedia for details:
Another Top Ten for Mr. O!
“moonbat” for what ever it’s meaning was every third or fourth word out of StewieZ’s mouth. He never did clarify himself even though there were numerous challenges.
You feed HUMAN bones to your dog, oldlego?
Okayyyy…but I wouldn’t want to be in your shoes when the word gets around your neighborhood.
I still think Punk doesn’t appear in this one because the little guy in the chair is the punk
Moonbat is like any other wingnut word… it means whatever you want whenever you want.
That explains a lot lalas.
Actually, Pat, since the rich are about to be taxed until they,too, are poor, I think that the Bushes would all be on a plane to another country. Why stay here, if you can leave? Better returns on your money somewhere else.
Moonbat is a neo-con expression that means, “Waaaaaaaah! Obama and the Dems won, that’s not faiiiiiirrrrrr! WAAAAAAAAAHHHHHH!!!!!”
teaguemj, that is disingenuous. The rich will simply return to the level they were taxed at before. That level, in turn, is lower than earlier days (say, Eisenhower’s era). You didn’t see the rich running away or refusing to invest because they weren’t making enough money. The problem is, the rich need an attitude adjustment. They need to get back to old time values when it wasn’t all about having more more more but when it was all about being part of the community and making the world a better place to live.
You admit that the Rich don’t care about America, only their bucks?
And btw…they’re doing that anyway, running business out of PO Boxes in the Caymans and Bermuda to avoid paying ANY taxes.
. Why stay here, if you can leave? Better returns on your money somewhere else.
Hey teag, you said it, so why are you still here? ? ?
, Really why?
Teague – taxes are on profits… if you don’t make profits you become poor. If you are being taxed on profits that means you ARE MAKING A PROFIT. Dumb@ss.
lalas, but maybe not enough of a profit-
DHLeaky- I ain’t rich enough!
Simon Jester- Of course the rich don’t care! Are you for real?
cdward-Your sentiments are admirable, and I hope that occurs! However, I am not holding my breath.
teague….you said it, I didn’t
What else would you call someone who takes his money out of his country in a time of crisis, only because HIS return isn’t big enough.
Humph - “Wreckage Starts with W” is a collection of Danziger cartoons.
teaguemj - the US already has one of the lowest tax rates on the rich in the world – certainly in the industrialized world. Reagan took it below most, and Bush II lowered it significantly further and removed taxes on inheritance as well.
So “taxing the rich until they’re poor” is nonsense. It’s merely asking them to contribute a little more of their surplus, not even comparable to civilized people elsewhere, still low, but somewhat higher than under Bush.
teaguemj, if I read your comment correctly, that means the rich can not be trusted to do the right thing, to act with a community oriented spirit. In that case, they ought to be a little more regulated, no?
motive, Thanks. I ordered the book for my Mother a couple of years ago but had forgotten who the artists was.
And even with those low tax rates, we still have businesses moving their addresses to a PO Box in the Caymans to avoid paying ANY taxes.
( How about the way Halliburton moved to Dubai for the same purpose? )
That’s one loophole I hope gets closed real quick.
The USA provides corporations to have a safe environment to conduct business. For that reason, and if they are citizens of this country, they should give their fair share in taxes, for the good of all our citizens.
SimonJ, I’d like Halliburton to have to give a good portion of it back … won’t happen, of course, and, two, I hope somebody in the IRS and Justice Dept is watching Cheney’s finances really closely to uncover his payback which he’ll get in a non-straight-forward way, I’m sure
BCS, what I’d like to see is a government audit of Halliburton’s books, and prosecution of their execs for any fraud on their part.
Any chance that might happen, ya think?
SimonJ, rent the documentary “Iraq for Sale.” They already have evidence of fraud. Some of the footage from the film still stays with me … a convoy of empty trucks making deliveries on dangerous roads so the private contractor can charge for the trips on a cost-plus basis. It’s truly mind-boggling. War-profiteering should be a crime and that should make Cheney the first to be charged since he set it up, and Bush too since he went along with it.
I highly recommend the documentary.
I’ll have to keep vid that in mind, BCS
But here’s the thing that really kills me:
The same righties who now scream bloody murder about all the ‘pork’ in the stimulus bill never raised a peep over all those no-bid contracts the Bushies handed out to Halliburton etc.
In fact, they even defended them.
Their favorite method was th’ ol’ straw man play: “All right libs, tell me, who ELSE could do that job?”
