    Thinking is so much easier when you let someone else do it for you.

    They’re red-hatless because they already thought that through and discarded it as a bad idea.

    Stop with the lemming jokes. As the world now knows, they don’t jump to their deaths. They were chased off that cliff by Disney cameramen.

    A lot of people don’t really think, they react to external stimuli.

    Why are some people complaining about lemming jokes, as if there hadn’t been anything else for a long time. The last strip featuring lemmings was on April 5.

    Encouraging, seems as if some people might be considering “policies” rather than “person” as the criteria for thinking.

    No lemmings were hurt in the creation of this comic strip.

    Pig is obviously speaking of liberals in the first panel. But in the second the little lemming would not actually respond with “jump off a cliff”, unfortunately, but blame it on Climate Change and Donald Trump and go to Starbucks and text on his cell phone about the good ol’ days when they had pumpkin spice and creme brûlée lattes.

    They should be blocking freeways and carrying Free Palestine signs, because that’s what lemmings do

    Yes thinking is a good thing, pity the sheeple on the left still march to the drumbeat of the Deep State, no matter the tons of evidence the leftist gurus have given the world. Destroy democracy in order to restore democracy is what the leftist have been shoving in your face since 1993 and 900plus personal and confidential FBI files were handed to the Clintons in the White House for their copying and use. The motto of the left, “any lie is a good lie if it advances marxism”.

    Lemmings don’t jump off cliffs naturally; only if they are driven by corporations only driven by greed.

    What they don’t show is what happens at first to the one lemming who really thinks outside the box! But stick to it and it turns out for the best in the end.

    This isn’t true. The wiki for the Disney movie White Wilderness covers it in a PC way but they were herded to their deaths for the movie. They either smashed against the rocks below and those that survived were drowned or smashed against the rocks in the churning waters below.

    My students always complained when I asked them to actually think about something. They had an amazing variety of ways to get around it.

    Lemmings are like democrats….let others do the thinking and just follow blindly. It’s like all the idiot communist liberal democrats that post on this strip. They couldn’t decide what shoes to wear if they weren’t told. All they can do is repeat what has been said for the past two years over and over, taking that old communist mantra….“repeat a lie over and over and long enough, idiots will start to believe it”. Works for them and their pea size brains.

    “It may interest you to know that I have made a lifelong study of lemmings, just as you have made a lifelong study of people. Like you, I have found but one thing about my subject which I do not understand.”“And what is that?” asked the lemming.“I don’t understand,” said the scientist, “why you lemmings all rush down to the sea and drown yourselves.”“How curious,” said the lemming. “The one thing I don’t understand is why you human beings don’t.”

    Lemmings was a fun video game decades ago, but the idea behind the game and this comic strip are just a Disney made fantasy.

    Most people are so desperate to be led, they will follow the first person to speak up. And if he leads them over a cliff, that’s OK. At least they a going somewhere.

    I want you to think for yourself. Do the research, and make up your own mind. Here are some sources for you . ((Here is where I give you sources of misinformation and disinformation.))
