    The curvature of the skylight would disperse not concentrate the sunlight. The rays are correct; the effect is wrong.

    Factually challenged comic.

    Henry, you nailed it. Best cartoon you’ve ever done!

    I’ve got no information source for some of these comments. How do we know, logicalone, that there are 34 million blank ID cards for ILLEGALS? Specifically 34 million? Just for illegals? How would you know?

    And, Lisa, who is going to need executive amnesty? I don’t understand your point.

    I voted yesterday. Big turnout. Mostly older and very white. Democrats have no chance if Hispanics and African Americans don’t or can’t vote. But if they do vote — and win — isn’t that what our democracy is all about?

    Well, no. The web site for insurance enrollment didn’t work. Fiscally, in the first term, we did NOT have a depression. Internationally, we no longer have the burden of an Iraq-war-forever and Iran is at the table. Dare we hope for Palestinian-Israeli settlement?

    What bothers me is the number who hoped for a failed presidency and worked very hard to make it happen.

    Okay, I may be blind. I could be called brain-dead. I don’t go by cults of personality or any other cult and am certainly not an ozombie. But I do care about the unemployed and people who can’t afford medical insurance. Not to mention the truly dead and maimed brave soldiers fighting the fool’s errand (Cheney-Bush’s) in Iraq.

    The Obama presidency will be judged some years from now, but my view is it will be measured by its successes in spite of virulent opposition.

    Nothing is more irritating than a millionaire whining about taxes. Be happy. Your millions are yours because of our protections and opportunities. Most — MOST — millionaires ‘earned’ their obscene wealth through inheritance.

    “Born on third base and thought they had hit a triple,” to use Molly Ivins’ adage.

    Ms MacKenzie didn’t do much to ‘earn’ her $370 million. Taxes are the least of her problems.

    Cons should get off the ACA kick. Obamacare — or, what i call “Romneycare for America” — is an imperfect plan. Mostly because Republican Senators had filibuster power. But it’s a whole lot better than what we had before Obamacare — which I call “Take Your Chances, Mac.” At its best Obamacare takes Medicare Advantage customers off welfare. Makes them pay for what they get.

    Bear in mind that some in California want a pony so they can butcher it and eat it, because they’re starving.

    Such a merry Christmas theme, Lisa.

    As usual Lisa got it exactly wrong. Missed by a mile. Obama has offered to cut defense spending, spending on subsidies for oil and gas companies (billion dollar companies), health care — pharma companies making trillions in overpriced drugs. The House and Boehner want really big (unspecified) cuts which can only be in Medicare, Social Security, Medicaid, Veteran benefits, pensions, aid to the already strapped states, etc. Disastrous for the economy.Don’t talk about cuts generically. Talk specifically. Do you want to cut spending for the most vulnerable citizens? Or do you want to cut welfare for the wealthy? I’m with Obama.
