DON'T GO THERE
Why would you pinhead tea baggers want to bring up the President and Putin? You think Vlad is acting like a leader for invading Crimea? You think leadership is invading another country on trumped up charges? To be fair, I suppose it would be impossible for you to reach any other conclusion when operating from an intellectual position of cynical ignorance.
At least President Obama didn't meet Putin and say, ""I looked the man in the eye. I found him to be very straightforward and trustworthy….I was able to get a sense of his soul." (George W. Bush, after meeting Putin, June 16, 2001.) And how did our former President react when Putin invaded Georgia? Well, there wasn't much he could do outside of talking tough and threatening sanctions.
Ukraine, however, is different, and Obama would be wise to take the tact of 'Don't just do something, sit there.'
When markets opened on monday morning the Russian stock indexes fell by more than 10%. In one day $60 billion vanished which is more than Putin spent preparing Sochi for the Winter Olympics. Surveys designed to measure Russian support for the invasion actually showed over 70% are opposed. The Ruble dropped against the dollar to its lowest point in history and the Russian central bank spent $10 billion on the foreign exchange markets trying to prop it up. The Russian economy is stagnant and, according to Timothy Ash, head of emerging market research at Standard Bank, "This latest military adventure will increase capital flight, weaken Russian asset prices, and slow investment activity and growth. Western financial sanctions on Russia will hurt further," Ash told the Wall Street Journal.
So go ahead pinheads, keep admiring Putin and bashing Obama. You clowns will go to any length to criticize this American President, even when it looks like treason.
EMBRACE THE K.I.S.S. PRINCIPLE
Do unto others as you would have others do unto you.
Gluteus Maximus preached, "Backwater.....once again your stupidity shines bright. Christianity requires an INDIVIDUAL decision to become a Christian and follow the teachings of Jesus Christ, the Savior.........the door is always open to each INDIVIDUAL and there is absolutely no need for big guvment especially one run by a bunch of secular humanist pagan Democrats."
But apparently you believe there IS a need for a 'big guvment' run by fundamentalist self-described christian republicans to discriminate against anyone they 'believe' to be a sinner. The law may have been vetoed in Arizona, but republican legislatures around the country are trying to enact the same hate-based laws disguised as religious liberty. Imagine! Using religious justification to cast stones! What a crock!
Max, you're as big a hypocrite as those fundamentalist republican lawmakers, and I welcome your scorn. I know you're not all completely ignorant; you all know a great deal about hatred.
MUST BE MAGIC
JT, how do you manage to type so much and say so little?
WHAT DO YOU BELIEVE?
Poor Zab. I NEVER said Christ was a crackpot. I may have said some people who claim to be Christians are looney-toons, some people who believe their own Biblical interpretation is gospel are crackpots, and some people who think the Bible is a science textbook are a few fries short of a happy meal.
Zab stumbled on: "Do you mean the rich like the Obamas, Pelosi, Soros, Clintons, Gore, Kennedys, Kerry, or are you just referring to those who actually earn their money in the private sector?"
I don't know, Zab. I was quoting scripture. What do YOU believe?
You think everyone who inherits wealth works hard?
SACRED CLASS WARFARE
If Jesus came back today he'd be saddened at how the rich are behaving. He wanted rich people to be, well, more Christ-like.
Luke 6:20-21 'Blessed are you who are poor, for yours is the kingdom of God.
Mark 10:21-22 "You lack one thing; go, sell what you own, and give the money to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; then come, follow me."
Mark 10:25, "It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God."
Sounds like socialist.
BUSH WAS RIGHT
When he said there were WMD in Iraq. Right?
THERE ARE LIES, DAMN LIES, AND FOX POLL NUMBERS
YouGuv recently surveyed both Romney and Obama voters and found 90% of Romney voters said they would vote for him again. 79% said they still back the President and10% said they would NOT vote for Obama again. Of 35 voters in THAT group, 25 said they regretted voting for Obama.
THE FOX HEADLINE: "71% of Obama voters regret it."
As the for you cute little pin head tea baggers, well, keep studying your bibles. Keep believing the earth is 4,000 years old and the polar ice cap is NOT melting and political science is truer than real science and people are poor because they're lazy and women can't get abortions even if the father is a rapist or grandpa or both.
And please oh please nominate one of the cuckoo birds for 2016. Please!
P.S. Hey Ken, the genius creator of this cartoon is Clay Bennett, but thanks for asking.
IT'S A MARKETING OPPORTUNITY
I don't care what Washington calls the team, but Dan Snyder is a smart businessman. The jury is out on his ability to run an NFL franchise, but he's not a billionaire by luck.
Changing the name would be a financial windfall and here's how Snyder could do it. Change the name but keep the team colors. Have the team play half of its home and away games with the new uniform and half with the current uniform. He could call them 'classics' or 'throwbacks.' All of the loyal 'Redskins' fans would go right out and buy the new jerseys, caps, coffee mugs, jackets, etc. etc. etc. That's the main reason NFL teams change their uniforms from time to time and also why they play some of their games with 'throwbacks.'
NFL owners don't care about political correctness, they are only interested in pleasing their fans. They don't want to alienate customers, and if they can do that and make millions through NFL properties, well, all the better.
Why isn't Tennessee the Titans and not the Hillbillies or Yahoos or Rednecks?
A ROSE BY ANY OTHER NAME...
HILLBILLIES AND YAHOOS, HILLBILLIES AND YAHOOS, HILLBILLIES AND YAHOOS, HILLBILLIES AND YAHOOS, HILLBILLIES AND YAHOOS, HILLBILLIES AND YAHOOS, HILLBILLIES AND YAHOOS, HILLBILLIES AND YAHOOS, HILLBILLIES AND YAHOOS,
If the word 'Redskin' is okay, go up to a Native American and call him that.
