1. If I could do art, I'd draw a toon that had a miner or construction
worker all dirty and sweating, and say "This man's labor should be taxed" and then show some jerk-off fundie preacher driving around in his air-conditioned mercedes, and say "But not this man's".

5. Art for assholes. Lesson one: How to draw a strawman.

Aren't you sick of hateful repugs characterizing your local schools this way?

6. It's asolutely right!
Of course I want education tax dollars spent where they're NEEDED!

The panel on the right demonstrates no need for additional funding other than their floor seems to be slanting to the right (go figure!) They seem to be doing fine without public money. :)

9. I was gonna post that too. The idiot actually makes a GREAT point
against vouchers. The most disturbing thing is instead of ADDING a cross to indicate the scene on the right was a faith-based school, he REPLACED George Washington entirely!! Shows their true agenda in my opinion.

8. When I finally have my stroke,
Edited on Sun Jul-18-04 11:24 PM by gauguin57
it will be because I've just read Mallard Fillmore. That goddamned duck pisses me off to the point where I become irrational. I let that stupid cartoon just GET UNDER MY SKIN! Makes me mad at myself.

In the above cartoon, the artist forgot to depict the NARROWING OF THE MINDS of the kids in the madrassa -- 'scuse me -- Fundie school on the right. Don't bother drawing any of the extensive fossil evidence supporting the theory of evolution on the blackboard on the right ... not on their agenda. Draw the little fairy tale that is Adam and Eve and the Snake and the Apple, and tell them it's fact.

And ANOTHER thing ... if there's chaos in the school on the left, it's because of Bush's goddamned TAX CUTS FOR THE WEALTHY and Bush's goddamned LIE OF AN IRAQ WAR ... etc. etc. He's left EVERY child behind. Grrrrrr!

18. As Malloy says...
...That would be the 'talking snake theory' of creation.

12. Yet ANOTHER THING
I'm really pissed off now.

Most of the adults in my family have been teachers. Looking again at the unengaged person at the teacher's desk on the left makes me insane. My family members have WORKED THEIR BUTTS OFF for YEARS to educate children in their public schools. Stressed themselves into compromised immune systems because they care so much about doing a good job for those kids.

Yes, there are substandard professionals in every job, including teaching. But GIVE ME A BREAK with the public-school teacher ignoring the children and reading a magazine.

13. Effin' racist cartoonist still puts a WHITE woman in charge
True Christianity is for whites only. People of color need not apply, except for jobs requiring entrance through the back door.

And of course I'm angry at the depiction of the public school teacher not even paying attention to the class. That's total bullsh*t!!

14. Ehhh... still not as bad as Mallard Fillmore.
I can't stand that fucking duck. ;)

I mean, it's not even funny, and it doesn't make a point. It's just the same formulaic crap about the main character making a comment, Generic Liberal 1, 2, or 3 (who wear bow ties for some stupid fucking reason, even though I'm hard pressed to find a liberal who wears one, even though Tucker fucking Carlson does) makes a ludicrous strawman statement, smarminess ensues.

I'm a product of the public education system, and I'm doing pretty well, I think.

16. Check out Michael Ramirez sometime
That's proof enough that the L.A. Times isn't a "liberal" paper.
