Cartoon Saturday


And what a week it's been ...

Senator Mitch McConnell cancelled a planned Senate vote on the GOP plan to "remove and replace" Obamacare, figuring that it would be better to wait rather than face a losing vote; in England, tests showed that the cladding panels that contributed to the terrible Grenfell Tower fire were not only highly flammable, but have been used in scores of other buildings across the country, leading to the threat of other such awful conflagrations; the upcoming fraud trial of Martin "Pharma Bro" Shkreli, who became known as "the most hated man in America" after increasing the price of a vital drug by 5,000%, is being complicated by the inability of the court to find prospective jurors who don't already hate him; Donald Trump achieved the near-miraculous feat of earning condemnation by Congressional Republicans when he tweeted grossly insulting and unpresidential comments about MSNBC commentators Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski; and the White House announced that Donald Trump will visit France to take part in Bastille* Day celebrations next month.

This week, in honor of the unfocused anger that seems to drive all our politics and social interactions we are featuring cartoons about anger, rage, and general pissed-offness ...

MAKING PROGRESS!!! ...


I hope the teacher manages to pull it together ...


I think I'd go to the restaurant down the street, instead ...


Don't text while driving, either ...


Essence of old white male anger ...


Ah, yes ... that would be a causative factor ...


That will help, assuming everyone plays along ...


You need to keep the patients apart in order to obtain real improvement ...


The doctor from the second cartoon still isn't back yet ...


When you hire the right person for the job ...


That's it for this edition of Cartoon Saturday ... and if you don't like it, that's just too %#&@! bad, so get stuffed.

Just kidding ...

Have a good day and a great weekend, and stay calm. More thoughts tomorrow, when Poetry Sunday returns.

* Rumors that Attorney General Jeff Sessions will accompany Mr Trump in order to study the Bastille for lessons applicable to US prison policies are, at the moment, unconfirmed.

I've found retirement to be a great anger management tool.
I'm angry much less often now that I don't have to be around other people as much!

Passing up the news is a great anger management tool.

I think the scientists are on to something big. But old white male anger would probably be banned by the Geneva convention.

Too much of what passes for politics just pisses me off.

Posting using all caps does signify either anger or a stuck shift key.

Anger management is all too needed. Great collection!
