For help on how to follow a comic title,
Apparently the Russiagaters still don’t realize what a disaster Russiagate is. The Democrats could have spent the last two years putting forward a positive program. Or, failing that, they could have attacked Trump on hundreds of factual, verifiable points. Instead, we got idpol, conspiracy theories, neocon fantasies of empire, and McCarthyism. A year and a half is a long time in politics, but as things stand, It sure looks like they’ve blown 2020. And yet we’re still getting more of the same.
The first job of a portrait painter is to figure out how the subject wants to look; then, paint that.
War heroes are not a particular kind of person. War heroes do not create themselves. They are created by people who want to have war heroes. This is probably an atavism going back to prehistory, when humans roamed around in small bands beating large animals and each other over the head with clubs. In order to organize such a band, apparently an alpha male is usually necessary so one must be found, for better or worse. Today, we’re still not out of the primeval woods, mentally speaking. Only our weapons have improved.
As for the misogynists here, if it weren’t for mothers, you wouldn’t exist; but everybody makes mistakes.
When I was in grade school I was taught to read with considerable speed and comprehension, maybe 1000 words per minute if it was plain narrative. (It’s a learned skill.) Hence as a big teenager I got through War and Peace and The Brothers Karamazov in a couple of weeks each when I was stuck out in the woods one summer, plus some other fat, soggy American novels of the midcentury. I love Moby Dick; I’m surprised anyone thinks it’s boring. Ulysses seemed a bit overwrought to me so I started jumping around looking for the good parts. If I wanted a good long read I would get into The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire again, but the times it describes are pretty depressing, too much like our own. It’s too bad most people aren’t taught how to read fast any more.
Hence the name of the planet.
You have to watch that coughing, to say nothing of consorting with large apes.
She seems to actually be an exhibitionist.
The Democrats have the rather serious fault of doing nothing.
For ‘liberals’, I think the mirror needs to show that they are as blind to the class war as the race war is to ‘conservatives’. But, you know, since they’re all blind, when they look in the mirror they don’t see anything.
If you do nothing else today, learn the Constitutional definition of treason. I would like to start seeing better propaganda than I’ve been getting in the last several years.
