For help on how to follow a comic title,
“The older I get, the better I was.”
Didn’t anyone notice that the genie is out of the bottle? And is making his escape?
“The United States is one of the most generous countries in the world.” – How’s that for “Lib” guilt?
“Lib guilt” at the Vatican - I guess they did apologize to Galileo…
Innovation v Stagnation?!!? really?? How convenient to have a victim to blame…
Re: “Prove it …” - two words: United Fruit.
The situation depicted in this toon is inherently unstable - sooner than later, I think, in several regions.
^ I think the bait is the use of the Euro as a preferred currency reserve (attractive compared to USD and USD securities) - the trap is the increased leverage that could be then exerted, say, on Russian energy supply.
Just a guess - I’m surely no economist.
Heartfelt thanks to omQ R for elucidating the context of the cartoon.
Many of us visit these pages to garner a greater understanding of the world around us and to exchange rational views of current events.
Unfortunately, trolls have become a fact of life - would they had remained only myth.
^ I’m not sure, either.

just keep in mind that the opposite of gravity is levity…
That “… gal in George [sic] …” was named Meredith Hope Emerson.
Nowhere in the extensive local coverage this crime received is there any indication that the perp, Gary Michael Hilton, “… admitted to stalking her in the park because he knew she would not be armed there.” as you claim.
In fact, Dawson County (Georgia) District Attorney Lee Darragh stated at Hilton’s sentencing that “he chose her because she was a female alone. It was his sole purpose to acquire her (bank) cards and her PIN numbers.”
check out the story here:
Can you show me any documentation to support your claim that this whacko Hilton ever, to anyone anywhere at any time, stated that he targeted Ms.Emerson because she would not be armed at the location of her abduction?
Why is this important? Maybe because using the victim of a particularly repugnant crime to make a specious argument (and in such a glib manner) is itself repugnant.
Dtroutma - thanks for your comment - spot on.
PKSr: I read the filings as posted on your ref - talk about a frivolous lawsuit! Pls check this : http://www.factcheck.org/elections-2008/born_in_the_usa.html
Love the blackboard’s comments - it appears to be an interactive model complete with irony module, unlike the driven Bush …
