Cartoon Saturday


Oy. Just, oy.

As you know, I usually start Cartoon Saturday off with a summary of the week's bad news. This week, the news is so dispiriting that I can't bring myself to talk about it, so let's just get to the cartoons. As I continue with the level of anger and elevated blood pressure brought on by the actions of our government, I offer a collection of cartoons about ... government.

An interesting way to look at who merits which rights ...


Yes, I do believe that's how it looks when we equate limitless campaign contributions to Constitutionally-protected free speech ...


Yep ...


True ...


It's easy to blame things on the "shadow government" or the "deep state" when you can't get anything done on your own ...


They're very busy, raising money for re-election ...


How it really works ...


How it really works, continued ...


I think we ought to go ahead and officially rename them ...


True ...


And there you have it - this week's collection of cartoons dedicated to excellence stupidity in government.

We're down to the last few days of the visit of our friends Alois and Steffi from Germany, and so we'll be spending the weekend hitting some of the interesting sites we haven't visited yet. The weather is a bit less miserably hot and humid, but rain threatens throughout, so we'll just have to see how it goes.

Have a good day and a great weekend. More thoughts tomorrow.

Ugh!
Cartoon Saturday is supposed to lift my spirits.
Unfortunately there is nothing funny about our government.

I like the automatic congressman one. It's true, unfortunately.

That's definitely the vetting process for this administration.

I wonder how many of our Founding Fathers wore wigs so that there descendants would be freaked out by them doing so.

Does anyone refer to the Constitutional Convention as the Drag Queen Convention?

Bilbo, this week was just what the doctor/editor ordered for these should be unbelievable times. Thanks!
