Six Million Trayvons

gone fishingYes, I know the premise of this cartoon takes the idea of the slaughter of innocents to absurd lengths. I mean, how could any court be so blase about murder? Yet over 100,000 innocent men, women, and children died as a result of the American invasion of Iraq. Some even estimate as many as one million people died in Iraq and Afghanistan, combined, since 2003. And to what end?

Yet no one was punished. There are no war criminals in this country. George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, and Donald Rumsfeld had no idea their information was faulty and so they walk free (though not abroad). As far as American jurisprudence is concerned there is no difference between "preemptive strikes" and "stand your ground".

There is a free lunch in this country. Just remember to leave no witnesses.



Note 1: Oh, look. The police drowned a guy. And murdered a guy.

Note 2: Like a good horror story? Well, then just read what Random House did to THIS guy.

Note 3: People in Sweden, the Netherlands, and Finland pay on average less than $130 a year for cell phone service. Americans pay $635.85 a year. What do American telecoms do with this mountain of money? The buy out the competition.

Note 4: How many calories daily would Americans have to eliminate from their diet to reduce obesity rates? Just 64.

Note 5: It's difficult being an atheist sometimes. I miss out on all the wonderful social rituals.

Defendent: I knew they were dangerous, your honor, because they were all wearing this same strange headgear. I was keeping an eye on them but they snuck up behind me and punched me in the nose. Then they beat my head against the ground. I had no choice but to stand my ground and shoot them.

Judge: All six million of them?

Defendent: As God is my only witness.

Judge: Works for me. Case dismissed. Lunch, anyone?
