I can only hypothesize that the American gunslinger (Biden) has already drawn his weapons and threw them at his opponent, knocking him out.
Or Bidens’s opponent is on the ground, laughing…
Or Biden’s opponent was already dead or unconscious when Biden happened upon him…
Or Hagen just thought he’d paint us a pretty picture to keep us entertained…
Or “thetroms” is actually encapsulating the situation with “??”…
Well, the FIRST problem with this cartoon is Mr. Handelsman’s depiction of the M.A.G.A. Republican (red hat, though I’ll admit there no identifier on it) reading a newspaper – that’s stretching “artistic license” a bit far, don’t you think?
The second thing wrong is the headline – no reporter worth his or her salt would ever start their article with such an incorrect headline – assuming their targeted “reader” could even do so, it’s already been “proven” that there is NO FACT so obvious that it cannot be ignored by a republican who wishes to ignore that fact; that’s one of the primary characteristics that makes them a “republican” in the first place.
I’ve never held that abortion should be allowed “until birth”, Rosie, and I think, if you’d care to investigate, all references to “until birth” come from RIGHT-WING MEDIA as that’s NEVER BEEN a policy of the democratic party – ever!
I support logical restrictions based on viability of the fetus, and will once again, bring up the fact that the majority of Americans believe that the abortion decision should be made by the woman and her doctor.
Roe vs Wade allowed states to regulate the decision, somewhat. And, interestingly, the origin of the cartoon is totally beside the point – I was speaking of the fact that our “representatives”, if they were totally representing us, would produce legislation to reflect that support – if you don’t want to address abortion, how about “gun control”? 64% of Americans support stricter gun laws, so why aren’t our representatives addressing THAT?
Bottom line here, Rosie, is that our federal governmental representatives DO NOT represent the majority of Americans, and probably never have – and, in my opinion, probably should
Appreciate you “letting me off the hook”, so to speak, and I suppose you’re right – as long as the shelters they’re being “returned to” are strictly “no kill” shelters – I guess it just “frosts” me that people can be so shallow.
I have three Siberian Huskies – two “rescues” and one we bought from a breeder. The two “rescues” bounce up and down before EVERY MEAL (they all get fed twice a day). The “purchased” dog does the same dance BUT he sometimes won’t eat after the bowl is down, though he scarfs up dental bones and other dog treats, and, after skipping a meal or two he dives right in again – I tell my wife he just not hungry, but every once in a while, she takes him into the Vet, where they NEVER find anything wrong except that her purse is too heavy.
You are correct, Rosie, we are a republic and we are supposed to be “represented” by our elected representatives, and for example, since 61% of Americans say that abortion should be legal, so then obviously it SHOULD BE LEGAL!
The very fact that over half of Americans think ONE WAY and their so called “representatives” vote the other way in many more ways than JUST abortion is pointing to our basic dissonance in the political field which we need to correct.
It’s not terribly surprising the warm words of 20 years ago – at the time we still had hopes that Vlad would follow on with the democratic revisions being implemented in the Russian Republic at the time – all this took place before Putin decided to make himself “President-for-Life”
Putin and Peter do have one thing in common – they’re both Russian – the comparison starts to differ after that…
Most dogs, if not approached in a threatening manner, are really easy to approach – they innately “trust” humans and actually seem to “need” socializing with humans. The closeness of your sister probably calmed the dog’s fears. Humans, on the other hand seldom approach dogs with such open hearts.
The iron-clad rule I live by is, "Once you commit yourself to an animal – even if you plan on eating it, later, the animal in your “care” should be treated humanely and kept sheltered and comfortable, even if it means YOU aren’t, necessarily.The commitment to “care” lasts for the life of the animal, not just until you get “tired” of caring for them.
Sorry for getting on my “soapbox” to you – I’m just annoyed with humans at the moment, having just read about people who “adopted” pets to keep them company during the pandemic and who turned them back to the shelter when they went back to work. People just keep finding new ways to prove just how pathetic they are.
True, Gamma – it’s a twisted reference to how female dogs will defend their young – my apologies to female dogs (and most other animals, as well) world-wide.
