Cartoon Saturday


The clock is ticking toward the change of administrations ...

The government of Mexico is working on economic contingency plans to cope with trade agreement changes expected once the Trump administration takes office; Iraqi army forces fighting to liberate Mosul from Daesh occupation have discovered hundreds of bodies buried in mass graves; in a horrifying accident, a 23-year-old man fell into a hot spring at Yellowstone National Park and dissolved before he could be rescued; President-elect Trump has paid $25 million to settle a package of lawsuits over his failed "Trump University" project; and famed theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking has estimated that the human race has about 1,000 years to find a new planet to colonize before running the risk of a mass extinction*.

As Donald Trump and his advisors slowly plan the transition to his new administration, it seems appropriate to have a Cartoon Saturday dedicated to cartoons about politics ...

Many schools are having difficulty in explaining the election campaign to their students ...


Now that's a threat ...


The language you use in politics is very important ...


There's always somebody waiting to be offended, and it's not always who you think ...


I have a feeling that a lot of people are going to realize they've been fooled ...


Moonlighting ...


It's the only thing scarier than real climate change ...


Boxing in political terms ...


Speaking with all the authority of someone with a long-dormant degree in Linguistics, I think this is hilarious ...


A good question ...


Well, I hope this helped cheer you up. Heaven knows most of the country needs a little cheering-up.

It looks like it's going to be a chilly and rainy weekend here in NoVa, good weather to work on cleaning the house in preparation for the arrival of our family for the Thanksgiving reunion. Unfortunately, the weekend only lasts two days and my less-than-stellar day-to-day housekeeping skills argue for considerably longer. Oh, well ... as the old Amish adage says, a house should be clean enough to be healthy and dirty enough to be happy. I think I can manage that.

Have a good day and a great weekend, and come back tomorrow for Poetry Sunday. More thoughts then.

Great politician cartoons. The one with the witches was on target.

I'm not sure that these were comforting. Most of them seemed to be more truth than cartoon.
We'll be doing some house prep for Thanksgiving, as well.
Enjoy the weekend.

A little sick humor there!

I can see how drunken sailors would object to that expression.

I was thinking about using the Yellowstone story for a post. But the only thing for a picture was a bubbly little pond.

Who let the rats out?

All were great to read, but my favorite was the Politicians Life in prepositions.

Re: The last cartoon - It's unquestionably "unquestioned answers" that disturbs me more.
