The Party of Lincoln

© Pat Bagley That’s right, Rick Perry thinks that the proper response to the theatre shooting spree that left three people dead (including the shooter) and 11 injured is to have more guns in theatres. What would Lincoln think about that?

Invasion of the Brain Snatchers

Jade Helm 15 is underway in Texas, and unfortunately there is no invasion in sight. Fooled them again, didn’t we?

Fact Checking Satire?

Here’s a new one for me. PolitiFact Texas has done a fact check on some satire by Andy Borowitz. Quotes from Borowitz have appeared in this blog, but he normally writes satire in a humor column for the The New Yorker. Borowitz recently posted on Facebook “Texas is now our most pro-life state, with just […]

Not Just a River in Egypt

© Tom Tomorrow I believe that the second amendment does give people the right to own guns. It just seems to me that there should be some way to close all the stupid loopholes that allow people to buy guns with no background check. I’d even be in favor of requiring people to pass some […]

The Week in Review

© Tom Tomorrow Who could have predicted that the week when I went out of town could have produced so much irony in my absence! My only question is, should I go on vacation more often?

Existing While Black

© Ruben Bolling While this comic might take some liberties for comic effect, it is scary how many people view behaviors far differently depending on the skin color of the person doing the behavior. Even people who aren’t particularly racist. For example, if you saw a black person carrying a hunting rifle around in an […]

Carried Away

The book “My Parents Open Carry” is about a 13-year-old and her parents “as they spend a typical Saturday running errands and having fun together. What’s not so typical is that Brenna’s parents lawfully open carry handguns for self-defense.” But the best part are the quotes from editorial reviews, like: “I’m going to read it […]

Guns N Roses

US District Judge Myron Thompson ruled yesterday that a 2013 Alabama state abortion clinic law is unconstitutional. Thompson ruled that the law’s requirement that abortion doctors have admitting privileges at hospitals in the same metropolitan area where they do abortions is an undue burden on womens’ right to abortions, because it would force the closing […]

Guns and Roses

I believe the US Constitution guarantees the right to own guns, but it definitely does not guarantee the right to incite violence. And that is the problem with the pro-gun industry in this country. They are using fear and lies to satisfy their own greed. The NRA used to be about hunting, but their original […]

The Search for Sanity … Out There!

© Tom Tomorrow The “journalist” in the last panel is David Gregory from “Meet the Press”. Who during a heated exchange did indeed ask Greenwald why he shouldn’t be charged with a felony. Gregory claimed that Greenwald “aided and abetted Snowden, even in his current movements”. Gregory seems to think it is the job of […]

The Limits of Surveillance

We Have Nothing To Fear Except Failure

© Tom Tomorrow The last week or so was a heck of a fail. The Media is at the top of my list, who seem to have changed from making fun of blogs and other social media, to just repeating stuff they find on the internet verbatim with no fact checking what-so-ever. And how tone […]

The Slippery Slope of Socialism

© Ruben Bolling I love this comic. Even though I believe in the right to bear arms, I also believe that we really need some laws that promote gun safety. But gun fanatics oppose pretty much any regulation of guns. I think in the long run, this radical stance will backfire on them.

Have Republicans Lost the Culture Wars?

For years, Republicans have energized their base by backing hot-button social and class issues like gay marriage, immigration, gun control, and abortion. So it is interesting to realize how much public opinion has changed on these issues. Is it in spite of Republican opposition and pandering, or perhaps because of it? Welcome to the new […]
