Just discovered this comic and I LOVE it. Subscribing now!
Discovering this strip has made my day! It’s so accurate – except for the politeness. I can’t imagine any of our cats saying “Sir” or “Ma’am” unless he/she was making a very snarky remark.
I’m also happy to see someone else use the term “grand cat” because it’s good to know I’m not the only one who has grand cats instead of grand children!
I have to go tell my cat-loving friends about this comic strip!
Human drama is overrated. Adventure is okay – without mustard.
I agree that the NSA spying is unconstitutional – at least, it was, before the misguided legislation passed in reaction to the September 11 attacks.
Sadly, the U.S. “PATRIOT” Act effectively stripped us of many of our constitutional rights, especially civil rights. When it was being considered in Congress, I contacted my senators & told their polite (but condescending) staff that it was a heinous piece of legislation that did not belong in this country.
No one I spoke with could give me a definitive answer re: whether their bosses had actually READ the damned thing. In the aftermath, some senators actually tried to wriggle out of the responsibility of passing the act by saying they hadn’t read it & therefore shouldn’t be held responsible. (?!) Hell, I read the damned thing – what possible excuse could our elected representatives have for NOT reading it?
Thanks to GW Bush, our Supreme Court has changed from the most respected court in the land to our own little presidential back-up singers: The Supremes, who do not legitimately interpret the Constitution according to precedent. The Chief Justice is Supremely Unqualified and rules according to his personal and religious beliefs. We can only hope that some of the worst on that panel will retire or pass on to debate very important issues with the Supreme Being – long before a Republican is elected as President again.
What fun! I’m adding this strip to my favorites list, so I’ll receive it every day. Woo-hoo!
I’ve never been fond of emoticons (or really understood them, for that matter), but if one existed for “standing ovation,” I’d be using it right HERE to comment on this strip. Regardless of the format, it takes personal courage to speak out publicly. Nicely done.
“Coating it with steak sauce? Using it to clean out my ears?”
GRAND FUN! I love this strip! I’m excited that I’ve set it up to receive it every day!

The fact that the speaker of the house doesn’t have a bleeep is irrelevant to anyone except a SEXIST. The fact that the President of the US is black is irrelevant to anyone except a RACIST. Neither has anything to do with job description or performance. The fact that you think a female or a black man in office is such a big, hairy deal speaks volumes. We don’t need a photo to know that you’re a white guy.

Let me extend this question to everyone who’s groaning about the state of the country:
Where were you during the eight years of GW Bush’s presidency, when he took the country’s budget into triple-digit deficit, took us into an illegal war, and shredded our civil rights via the patriot act, and cut services to the military, as well as citizens? Did you vote for him? Did you even vote at all?
Because if you did vote for him, you share responsibility for this mess. If you didn’t bother to vote at all, then don’t complain.
The American public should be insulted that politicians think they’re so stupid that they can’t remember what happened 8-10 years ago.
Just another reason that organized religion can be so dangerous. Personally, I prefer personal (or “free-range”) religion, where everything is between the individual and the deity, without any middlemen or sidekicks/henchmen. The idea of a “religious” group persecuting people because they don’t share that group’s particular views is both distressing and revealing.

The name of the book is “THE BUSINESS PLAN,” originally published in the 1930s. It’s still available; in fact, you can even get used copies over at Amazon.com for very little. I highly recommend General Smedley’s book - he was the most highly decorated officer ever, and his book was a factual account, not fiction. I think it should be required reading in every school in America.
