Looking for a specific Rage Comic and/or Rant and can't find it?

And Then They Woke Up.

the patriot actAs though reports of a police force that is randomly brutalizing the American populace isn't a big enough clue, it's true to say that the Patriot Act has virtually eliminated the Bill of Rights.

And before some wise-acre Libertarian makes the claim that their IS no Social Security trust fund you might want to read this first.


Today's comic (Apologies to Eric "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" Carle) actually came to me in a dream last night, but little did I suspect that it would turn out to be a mini-nightmare as this was a lot of pages to assemble. I hope you enjoy it. (Note: At the urging of readers I made the "Next" button a tad more prominent.)

For some time I've been telling myself that I would stick to a schedule of blasphemous comics on Mondays, political comics on Wednesdays, and pot-luck gags on Fridays, but it's never really worked out that way. Some interesting news event, like mass slaughter, always seem to pop up and divert my concentration.

So here's the new plan: Like it or not I'm going full-throttle with political-based material all the way to November 6th. My humble little strip doesn't honestly hold that much sway in public opinion but I figger every little bit helps.

And away we go.


are you registered to vote?Will you be voting absentee this November but don't know what to do about it?

Then check out the Long Distance Voter. Not only can you register to vote, and verify your registration, you can also request an absentee ballot.

Oh, That Mitt.

ithes millions to sky wizardMitt Romney tells 533 lies in 30 weeks. Care to read them all?


itt has been using the slogan "Keep America American" for the past year or so. It also happens to be an old KKK slogan. I wish I were kidding.


Mittens was down in Louisiana surveying the damage of Hurricane Isaac and insulting the homeless. At one point he asked Governor Jindal "Where did the water come from?" I wish I were kidding.


What did the Wall Street Journal think of Mr. Romney's acceptance speech? "Too vague." From the article: "The WSJ warned that if Romney doesn't define his own policies, Democrats will do it for him."


Romney's veep, Paul Ryan, boasted he ran a marathon in under three hours. Not even close. This guy will lie about anything.


During his speech Mitt Romney beat the drums for war against Iran (War is very profitable for corporations and other heartless entities) yet he didn't mention the soldiers still fighting in Afghanistan. Shame on ya, Mitt. Shame on ya indeed.


Quote For The Day

"Am I better off than four years ago? You mean besides when we were in midst of global economic crisis, economy in free-fall, and the world was teetering on the edge of global Depression? Well, then, yeah." - Josh Marshall

President Obama's Top 50 Accomplishments

Number 35: Let Space Shuttle Die and Killed Planned Moon Mission

barack obama's top 50 accomplishmentsAllowed the expensive ($1 billion per launch), badly designed, dangerous shuttle program to make its final launch on July 8, 2011. Cut off funding for even more bloated and problem-plagued Bush-era Constellation program to build moon base in favor of support for private-sector low-earth orbit ventures, research on new rocket technologies for long-distance manned flight missions, and unmanned space exploration, including the largest interplanetary rover ever launched, which will investigate Mars’s potential to support life.

For the full list of his 50 finest achievements read the Washington Monthly story.

Today's Google Chow.

Once upon a time a little Conservative was born, and it was very power hungry, so it ate the Constitution.
But it got a stomach ache so it fed on a big tax cut, and it felt much better. But he was still power hungry.
So he ate all the media. But he was still power hungry
So he ate a president. But he was still power hungry
So he ate an election. But he was still power hungry
So he ate the Fourth Amendment.
...and the Fifth Amendment.
...and the Sixth Amendment.
...and the Seventh Amendment.
...and the Eighth Amendment.
...and the Ninth Amendment.
...and the Tenth Amendment.
...and the Thirteenth Amendment.
Bill of Rights. (enumerate them, freedom of assembly, etc.) But he was still power hungry
So he ate all the small home-owners. But he was still power hungry
So he ate the democratic process.
By now the little Conservative was a very big Conservative, but he was still power hungry.
So he looked around and found the only thing big enough for it to eat. Social Security trust fund.
And when at last every penny has been consumed he will turn his vast, swollen belly to the sun and dream that he is a beautiful butterfly.
Until he remembers he has yet to kill the minimum wage, abolish the EPA, or end the food stamp program.
The End.
