For help on how to follow a comic title,
cdward, Letting the people keep THEIR money (tax cuts) is not promising ice cream.
Well stated bueller.
Negative comments cdward? No, this is not just about the Nazi regime although that is the one that Martin Niemöller struggled against and suffered under. The Obama administration is singling out, attacking and, attempting to sensor a major media outlet just for telling an opposing view. These are the traits of Tyranny. What if the Bush administration had shut down the press corps and allowed access to Fox News alone. I can only imagine the fevered pitch of the leftist caterwauling.
Right to privacy motivemagus? Has Roe v. Wade been repealed? You want to talk about the right to privacy? Why is it the governments business how much or little my annual income is? Want to know how much the Patriot Act effected my life - a big fat ZERO. I sincerely doubt that you had any “men in black” posted across the street from your residence either.
There ya go. Just blame some faceless industry for bad parenting.
Ironically this just showed up in my in-box tonight.
THE COW AND THE ICE CREAM
ONE OF THE BEST EXPLANATIONS
OF WHY OBAMA WON THE ELECTION
From a teacher in the Nashville area
“We are worried about ‘the cow’ when it is all about the ‘Ice Cream.’
The most eye-opening civics lesson I ever had was while teaching third grade this year…
The presidential election was heating up and some of the children showed an interest.
I decided we would have an election for a class president. We would choose our nominees. They would make a campaign speech and the class would vote.
To simplify the process, candidates were nominated by other class members. We discussed what kinds of characteristics these students should have.
We got many nominations and from those, Jamie and Olivia were picked to run for the top spot. The class had done a great job in their selections. Both candidates were good kids.
I thought Jamie might have an advantage because he got lots of parental support. I had never seen Olivia’s mother.
The day arrived when they were to make their speeches. Jamie went first. He had specific ideas about how to make our class a better place. He ended by promising to do his very best. Everyone applauded and he sat down.
Now is was Olivia’s turn to speak. Her speech was concise. She said, “If you will vote for me, I will give you ice cream.” She sat down. The class went wild. “Yes! Yes! We want ice cream.”
She surely would say more. She did not have to. A discussion followed. How did she plan to pay for the ice cream? She wasn’t sure. Would her parents buy it or would the class pay for it. She didn’t know. The class really didn’t care. All they were thinking about was ice cream.
Jamie was forgotten. Olivia won by a landslide.
Every time Barack Obama opened his mouth he offered ice cream and 52 percent of the people reacted like nine year olds.
They want ice cream. The other 48 percent know they’re going to have to feed the cow and clean up the mess.
What the ‘toon doesn’t mention is that the “homeless” person used to work for the boat manufacturer.
… just stupid.
This will not end well. They will all be running for congress (shudder).
Well scottfreitas, did your vulgarity gain you any ground?
motivemagus, you really don’t think it can happen here, do you?
When the Nazis came for the communists,
I remained silent;
I was not a communist.
When they locked up the social democrats,
I remained silent;
I was not a social democrat.
When they came for the trade unionists,
I did not speak out;
I was not a trade unionist.
When they came for the Jews,
I remained silent;
I wasn’t a Jew.
When they came for me,
there was no one left to speak out.
