The doctor said this would relieve my constipation. But I still don’t understand the part about the sticks.
Food stamps are part of the budget of the U.S. Department of Agriculture. They are just one more way that corporate agriculture is supported by taxpayers. If food stamps were issued through any welfare agency, I’m afraid they would have been zeroed out a long time ago. I wonder how many families could be fed by the money paid directly to corporate farms as a result of the “subsidy” provided because of the tariffs?
I’m goin’ to Lou’siana with a . . .damn! Where is my banjo? And what happened to my clothes?
“Oh pshaw!” (Or is it ‘pashaw’? I’ve never had to spell it before! But I can recognize the hand gesture when I see it!)
And I thought you would forget! Silly me~
Well done, Brian. No one ever tells this story. Another little interesting sidelight is wondering whether Chief Justice Marshall should have recused himself. Having said all of that, the opinion was a masterful check on the power of both Congress and the Executive.
So predictable! The heat is on, so let’s change the subject and blame Congress. Except we don’t blame the Congress that was responsible—the one that gave us “tax reform” and made it impossible to pay the bills. No—that would be cutting too close to the bone. Blame a generic Congress! Because a predictable cartoon like this one distracts some folks from the horror show in the White House, and gives that crazy brother-in-law some talking points at Thanksgiving! So—for this contribution to the general sense of hopelessness that has gripped the country since the Russian sponsored election of 2016—a heartfelt thanks! You go, girl!
This cartoonist has no shame.

I repeat: this guy is the best political cartoonist working today. The ghost of Thomas Nast is smiling when this guy puts pen to paper.
