    — yep, we won’t start any wars over it or initiate any armed rebellion but, hey, if they don’t want us, we’ll make the most of it. (chortling with glee)

    — take a deep breath, Zom.

    It’s a cartoon. Don’t take everything too literally.

    In any case, there is a ginormous difference between starting a war — armed rebellion against the United States for the purpose of preserving slavery — and humbly accepting that you have been kicked out of the country (the wall in the ’toon is not built by those being kicked out but by the kicker-outer) and, in the process, preserving a haven of democracy and true liberty as the dictator that kicked you out trashes the Constitution, suppresses elections, and destroys personal freedoms for individuals but lets corporations run roughshod over the rights of workers, consumers and our shared environment.

    One is an active act of armed rebellion. One is contrite acceptance of someone else’s decision.

    Oh, and in the process, the poor red “welfare” states (states decimated by failed Republican economic disasters that TAKE more money from Washington than they pay) lose all the money they take from blue “donor” states (of which prosperous California is the largest) that pay more money to Washington than what we receive).

    Trump build a wall to kick California out of the Union?

    Hey, I’m in California. Sure, we can secede, Trump won’t even wage a Civil War to save the Union (because he can easily win the Electoral College without us and he will be as glad to get rid of us as we are to be rid of him) and we become the fifth largest economy in the world and the rest of you can have Trump all to yourselves!

    Hey, maybe we can get blue states Washington, Oregon and Hawaii to go with us (and after the election, Nevada has a blue governor and both house of the legislature, so, welcome aboard). We could call the new nation “Pacifica.”

    @duckerd33 demonstrates appalling lack of facts and historical knowledge.

    Obama did not give Iran any money. That was Trump.

    Obama returned their own seized assets in exchange for massive concessions on nuclear development that included unprecedented and intrusive inspections and monitoring.

    In contrast, Trump killed the seven-nation (U.S., Iran, U.K., France, Germany, Russia, China) super-deal that Iran was complying fully with, and then, trying to get his own deal, failed, and offered Iran a $15 billion bribe — this time not their own money, but U.S. taxpayer money.

    But that’s how the Trumpers are. They accuse everyone else of their own worst crimes.

    And seriously? If Liberals were in charge we would still be British?

    Bwa-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha! The ignorance astounds!

    The Founders were the LIBERALS. The Americans who resisted independence and wanted to stay loyal to the British were known as TORIES — the nickname of the CONSERVATIVE PARTY in Britain, still to this day!

    — you are right. Contrary to the alternative “reality” of @Jim2065’s fact averse mythology, to the extent that the U.S. has become more energy independent, and it has (though we are not completely independent), Trump did nothing to contribute to that — that was Obama. But as usual, for every accomplishment of Obama, Trump either wants to reverse and destroy it (like clean air standards or the Iran treaty) or take credit for it (like the Obama economic recovery or reducing our dependence on foreign oil), just like he tries to take credit for being rich because he happened to be born to a very wealthy (racist) developer despite his own dismal record of business failures.

    And to repeat, the ones who are energy independent are those like my wife and me who plug our electric cars into our solar panels and don’t worry if Trump’s foreign blunders cause gas prices to jump.

    — I guess the only way we can evaluate @BeniHanna6’s assertions would be to have a full, UNRESTRICTED and thorough investigation, without time limits or interference from the White House this time.

    I’m sure @BeniHanna6 wouldn’t possibly object to that, now./s

    — not sure why you responded to @ms-ss that way. Did you mean to respond to someone else? Her reply to me was very supportive, consistent with previous comments, not attacking the messenger. She seemed to be very much in agreement with the messenger, which I appreciated.

  8. about 17 hours ago on Lisa Benson

    — complete reality reversal. Trump is the one now offering Iran an actual bribe of $15 billion if they will please, please, please come back to the negotiating table so he can try to put the pieces back together and try to get something 1/10 as good as the SEVEN-NATION (U.S., Iran, U.K., Germany, Frances, Russia, China) agreement.

    And no, just please stop repeating the LIE about Obama giving money to the Iranians. He did not. Iranian assets were frozen due to the embargo and, in exchange for agreeing to a nuclear ban with rigorous verification, the embargo would be gradually lifted, starting with a RETURN TO IRAN OF ITS OWN ASSETS. Sheesh.

    As for energy independence, Obama is the one who built up domestic resources, including renewables, that enabled us to become more independent than we had ever been.

    And as for REAL energy independence, my wife and I plug our two electric cars into our solar panels, and then smile and wave as we drive past the guy changing the price signs on the gas station so YOU can pay for Trump’s next war to enrich oil companies.

    And you dodged the main point of the comment you claim to be responding to: Why is it America’s job to respond to an attack on a country that provided 15 of the 19 hijackers of 9/11 (and virtually 100% of their funding) and murdered an American journalist after they have purchased plenty of their own weapons … from us?

    — thank you for the kind words. I enjoy reading the comics and commenting on some of them. But I am also on a lot of other places. I will be actively involved in campaigning in the upcoming presidential (and down ballot) races for 2020.

    Mostly I will be concentrating on the campaign for Elizabeth Warren. For starters, I have uploaded a new web page to my web site explaining why I believe Warren is the MOST QUALIFIED and the MOST ELECTABLE candidate (including addressing the usual objections such as “too extreme” or “not ready for a woman”):

    @Jmays831 — humans definitely have more than our share of hubris, but the best example of that is to think that you can pump billions of tons of industrial carbon and carbon used for fuel, from every corner of every continent on earth 24/7/365 for 150 years and think that you won’t have an effect on the climate.

    And who the heck are you to think that you know more than the scientists, who are in virtual 100% consensus agreement (by those not funded by Big Carbon) that human activity is driving the current changes in climate?

    If you want authoritative sources (beyond the internal memos provided to you by @OldCoal proving that even ExxonMobil scientists secretly also knew the reality), do a search on Google Scholar (not regular Google) which constrains the results to academic journals (real science).

    Suggested search terms: “climate change” anthropogenic

    https://scholar.google.com/schhp?hl=en&as_sdt=0,3

    In any case, the worst that can happen if virtually 100% of scientists are wrong and we move to cleaner energy sources, is we end up with cleaner air and water. And if the virtually unanimous consensus of real scientists turns out to be right, and we ignore them, we destroy the planet and usher in the next mass extinction.
