Latest Iraq Success Story

Cartoonist Tom Toles perfectly captures the latest Iraq fiasco. This is a joint Bush-Obama debacle – and proof that neither party can be trusted to intelligently intervene in the Middle East. But the pro-Iraq war crowd is still yelping for the U.S. to “fix” Syria….

Cartoon Captures Journalists’ Hard Life

Maybe it  has been too long since I wrote about the Postal Service and their durn monopoly. On the other hand, there is the Code of Honor – as captured by the iconic title of the 1979 book on the Washington press corps – Drunk Before Noon. For better or worse,  I’ve never been inclined to start the […]

Obama’s “war” against ISIS has as much chance of succeeding as he has of finding unicorns to join his anti-ISIS “coalition.” Washington Post cartoonist Tom Toles beautifully captures the absurd premise underlying Obama’s latest war.   Perhaps most of the members of the House of Representatives who voted to support the “war” yesterday are simply clueless about the […]

Why TSA Screeners Hate Me: Mystery Solved

I have always wondered why TSA screeners seem to target me (especially after I cuss ’em a bit).  Now I realize that I have to buy new luggage to allay Official Fears.  OK, maybe I could also try to stop radiating sedition. But that is practically the only redeeming fun when flying nowadays. Admittedly, I have had […]

Great Cartoon on our Obscene Surveillance State

This great cartoon from Tom Toles this morn almost compensated for all the idiotic editorials the Washington Post publishes on Syria and other subjects. The only thing the cartoon was missing was a couple of deranged TSA agents descending on the spectator to force him to produce a DNA sample. Scott Adams has done a […]
