14. Yup- that's the name.

I know a woman who looks exactly like her and I don't much like that woman.
So my subconscious allows me to forget the name and her look alike.

6. A patch of Land is only good if it will grow food

Otherwise, one might as well eat the seeds.

Look to Indian Reservations as an example.

13. You are so very very correct. And you are making me sad.

Once I saw those reservations and the gray mounds of flyaway dust they have to call their land I understood and grieved.

Here I posted something I thought was a fly-away funny that may just drop off and be not much noted, and came back to 60 recommendations.
That was a real surprise.

25. Perhaps that;s what the PTB wants.

It would be a cynical way to destroy the Country, but throwing people onto the streets, armed, with nothing to lose.......

That would do it.

Then they can pick up what's left after the smoke clears and call it Urban Renewal.

You chose the best cartoon of the 2000's so far.

Hey, climate change and the ability to swim should be in her next toon.

11. Population Control

Without a good preventative health care system, America will be devastated by the next pandemic.

Small virulent groups would be identified only if they have medical access.

Of course the asshats in congress never studied history.

Being rich will not protect them.

12. Maxine makes me think of Margaret and Helen

Here is part of their blog entry on guns:
Why Bother With Books? School Lockers Really Should Become Gun Lockers
HELEN:
Margaret, when someone comes at you with a gun, respond with a gun. And when someone comes at you with a bigger gun, don’t mess around – trade up to a semi-automatic assault rifle with a hi-capcity clip. Fight violence with more violence. That’s cleary the only way to respond to the horror in Connecticut… if you’re a dipshit from the NRA.

Are they bullshitting us? Some peckerwood named Wayne LaPierre at the National Rifle Association announced that the NRA would form the National School Shield Emergency Response Program. And by that he means “armed security” at every school. I don’t know Margaret, NSSERP doesn’t roll off the tongue as easily as NRA. This from the people who came up with “Trigger the Vote” as a voter registration slogan for the last election. I guess I expected better.

<SNIP>

MARGARET:
Helen, dear, did you know you can buy a Smith & Wesson M&P 15-22 designed and built as a true .22 LR semi-auto from the ground up, with all the standard operating features and accessory specifications of a modern-version centerfire M&P15 rifle in various colors including “Pink and Platinum”? It could match my outfit. I hear they’ll even throw in a few hi-capacity magazines for free. Honey, you just can’t separate a discussion on gun control from one on mental illness. They kind of go hand in hand. LaPierre is just one more asshat to add to our list of many.

But all you'll get out of conservatives is an earful about their terrible worry over the deficit.
