Aiming To Please

just shoot meI wrote today's cartoon after reading about the man in Liege, Belgium who went berserk and killed five people, injuring 132 others (at last count).

My knee-jerk reaction is, of course, "Take ALL the guns!", but I realize that most gun owners are sensible humans and that the only ones they'll ever kill are themselves or friends and family.

Statistically speaking, of course.

As today's cartoon points out there are many worse things you can do than buy a gun, one of which is to buy a t-shirt like the one above. Honestly, is there any better way to tell a bad guy to "Shoot Me First"?

Stay safe out there.


And now our "Chart of the Day":

The Gingrich tax plan is a total give-away to the rich and would result in trillion-dollar deficits. But that's the Republican way.



Republican Job Creation Update

john boehner"We're going to have a relentless focus on creating jobs." - John Boehner, February 10, 2011.

The following is #121 in a list of Republican job creation activities since they gained control of the House in 2011. None, sad to say, have yet to result in one, single new job.

(121) 12-14-2011: The House spent the day passing a payroll tax-cut extension bill which, because it's packed to the gills with poison pills, has no chance of escaping the Senate alive. The little bastards knew it and passed the bill anyway just so they can say the Democrats vetoed a payroll tax-cut bill.

NOTE: As a result of an unexpected wave of enthusiasm the Republican Job Creation update now has its own web site. It will remain on the RP but a web site of its own will raise its visibility on the 'net as we progress towards the critical 2012 elections. And I thank you for your support.

Today's Google Chow.

Gun shop clerk: I dunno, mister. You got a strange look in your eye. I don't think I should sell this to you.

Man: Peculiar? Maybe.
To be honest, there’s something I must do tonight, something... unpleasant. But time is short, old man, and I don’t care what you think. I only want what is mine by law.
