"Won't Someone Think of the Frozen Embryos" Funnies

Too senile to be prosecuted for mishandling classified documents. Just-right senile to continue as/be re-elected president.
Or the shoe salesman. It's the economy stupids, and they keep saying how great it is.

Sunday 'Same Song and Dance' Funnies

And some of you think it's going to be different -- as in 'better' or 'worse' -- by re-electing one of these two Bozos.   No.  Hard pass.  Elect a clown, get a circus.  Or in this case, a shitshow (act two).

Senior Moments Funnies

As previously mentioned, I've seen this one. And it's not worth rewatching.

Our Caucasian forebearers also suffer under the same gerontocracy/oligarchy/plutocracy. Just don't call it a democracy, here or there. The people know better.
Dementia doesn't seem to be the main problem with our judicial branch.
In light of the nation's mostly-inaccessible mental health resources, poor Elmo was conscripted into therapist duty. Another overworked and underpaid laborer in the Land of the Free.
Enjoy the game today (no, not that one).

'The Abyss Gazas Back' Toons

“Whoever fights with monsters should see to it that he does not become a monster in the process. And when you gaze long into an abyss, the abyss also gazes into you.” — Friedrich Nietzche

We’ve been volunteering to fight monsters since the days when (William) McKinley -- with the encouragement of Joseph Pulitzer and W. R. Hearst -- began railing against Spain for its treatment of Cuba.

Possibly earlier, if you count our crusade to help liberate the Tejanos and a whole bunch of other people from Mexico.
"If all options are on the table then why is bombing the option that's always chosen?" - W.J. Astore

I like the joke that’s making the rounds that no matter who Americans vote for as president, they get John McCain, which is a shorthand way of saying that the National Security State is the unofficial fourth and most powerful branch of the US government. Or if you prefer, the MICIMATT (the military-industrial-congressional-intelligence-media-academe-think-tank complex).

Speaking of the media, you can always count on US media talking heads issuing resounding hosannas to the highest whenever a US president bombs a foreign country. Remember when reporters gushed that Donald Trump had finally become a real president in 2017 when he bombed Syria? Trump, who expressed contempt for McCain, finally became him -- and earned the MICIMATT’s approval -- when he started launching missiles to kill foreigners.

Nine more months of Red MAGA and Blue MAGA screeching at each other.  And at all of us who just don't want to play in their litterbox any longer.
Has the civil war/Texas secession in Eagle Pass come to a full rolling boil yet?  I am not closely watching that simmering pot.
Yes, we're strange.  Whaddaya gonna do?
