Helpless?

[this story is from The Onion, but it hardly seems satirical.] ‘No Way To Prevent This,’ Says Only Nation Where This Regularly Happens ROSEBURG, OR—In the hours following a violent rampage in southwestern Oregon in which a lone attacker killed nine individuals and seriously injured seven others, citizens living in the only country where this […]

Stuff Happens!

The news today is that Jeb Bush doesn’t even seem to be trying to run for president. When asked about the latest (45th this year, and counting) school shooting, he replied: We’re in a difficult time in our country and I don’t think more government is necessarily the answer to this, I think we need […]

Gun Dialog?

© Tom Tomorrow Why is it that we keep having the same stupid conversation over and over again? Is there no room for compromise? I believe that the second amendment does give people the right to own guns. But no right is absolute. The right to free speech does not give people the right to […]

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 […]
