On The Wagon

One of my readers, Julie S., has pleaded with me to stop with all the trump cartoons. She likes my work but says, " I would like to laugh at something else and take my mind off it..." I know I can cut down. I quit drinking alcohol in January; I can certainly cut back on trumpohol. Starting with this cartoon, I'll do one trump cartoon a week maybe before dinner. I'll only hate trump at parties. I'll be a social trump hater. I'll have to stop watching 24-7 cable news. That's all they talk about. It's at the point now where I wonder what they'll do after he's gone, which won't be that long. I, however, am not waiting. This is a good time to start weaning myself from the fun of trump bashing,

trump's Losing It

Movie Buffs, if you don't know what movie this is from, go to IMDB and check out the quote. I'll give you a hint; it was one of Humphrey Bogart's most famous roles. As a matter of fact, when you read the speech balloon, read it in Humphrey Bogart's voice.

Typical trump

For today's cartoon, I asked myself, ya' know, if I were on that Senate panel, the first question I'd ask is...and there's my cartoon. Fake President trump likes to pick people who are loyal to him. That's the only qualification, loyalty. Will he return it? Hell no, he throws people under the bus at the first sign of trouble. His picks have nothing to do with experience, character, competency or qualifications. Fake President, you ask? Then who's running the government? I'll tell you who. Career public servants. I spent last weekend in Arlington, VA, and you can feel it in the air. Driving on the Beltway (The National Parking Lot) or tooling along downtown on I-695 with the Washington Monume

Jesus Saves

....but Moses scores on the rebound. Old joke, but I like it. I was an evangelical Christian briefly when I was eleven years old. It lasted about a year until my father took me to a Methodist minister to de-program me. You can read about it in my memoir, "Trackrat: Memoir of a Fan" available on Amazon.com. I'm still a Christian though and I have one word to describe today's evangelicals: shameful. They should be ashamed of their support for trump. trump is their anti-Christ and they don't see it, which is exactly how their literalist interpretation of the Bible describes the anti-Christ in their version of "final days" in the book of Revelation. They blindly support the anti-Christ trump bec

Hannity Insanity

I quit watching Faux Snooze Channel because Shepard Smith and Brett Baier are only on a couple of hours a day. Because Juan Williams seems so very lonely at that table and the curvy couch crowd in the morning makes me want to flip to the Weather Channel. In short, I have to be careful about how I spend my increasingly valuable time. I'm not going to live forever and life is too short to waste it on Faux Snooze. Curious thing though, Faux Snooze likes to criticize "the media." In other words, it's admitting that it's not part of the media. It's admitting that it's the propaganda arm of the extreme conservative, alt-right, political bowel movement known as the GOP. The "P" stands for "poop" (o

Time Bomb

I hope trump fires Rod Rosenstein and everybody he can in the DOJ. And I hope he does it long before November. It's all happening the way I predicted, the destruction of the Republican Party. A party that has evolved from sound principles but now is built on racism, misogyny, homophobia, xenophobia and religious extremism. It cannot survive modern America. It’s happening in the manner I said, that the GOP would have to destroy America first, but in the end, our system will save us. The Republicans are doing their best trying to destroy America either by their actions or by their inactions and voters are noticing. Extremists who watch only Faux Snooze Channel aren't noticing because they onl

Priva$y

I'm a solution guy. When I see a problem, I look for a solution. It's kind of a man thing, but many women do it too. Many problems have no solution so when one is obvious I have to jump on it. Here's the solution to privacy on Facebook. Pay us. That's right, Mark Zuckerberg (I love saying "Zuckerberg".) If Facebook wants our personal info, you'll have to pay us. You're selling the info to others, so mark it up like any wholesale/retail operation. How much? That's negotiable. Buy our information at wholesale, mark it up, sell it to whomever; it's a win win. Just remember one thing. We're not cheap.

President Spanky

Stormy Daniels's lawyer, Michael Avenatti, said trump's latest legal foot-in-mouth is a "gift from heaven." I have to say that trump himself is a gift from heaven certainly for journalists all over the world. The most grateful journalists are my brothers and sisters in the editorial cartoon game. A member of my family (who shall remain anonymous) said he voted for trump because the Republicans and Democrats were so screwed up, a really horrible failing loser of a president would force them to work together. That may happen yet if there's anything left of the GOP after the mid-term elections.

Another Stupid Move

OK, trumpanzees, are you still having fun? And he's just getting started with his trade war with China and Wall St. stock manipulation against Amazon. Of course he's using his standard not-so-secret weapon of ignorance and stupidity. Still support him? Wait till you soybean farmers who voted for him watch your crops rot in the field for lack of a Chinese market. And you manufacturers, will you be taking back that raise you gave your peeps last year? The Oval Office oaf is putting the booming economy in peril. But, hey, don't take my word for it. I'm just another trump-hater. You trumpanzees know the truth, the one truth, the absolute truth of trump's Tweets. Fox Snooze, TV Roseanne, not-so

Coffee Cancer?

Every tinhorn, fly-by-night, so-called laboratory with a pair of test tubes has been trying to pin cancer on my favorite drink for decades. Now, some tinhorn, fly-by-night, so-called laboratory out in California has convinced a judge to require warning labels on the cups. One scientific website I visited called the science behind it "murky" at best. Whoa, wait a minute. I sound like a trumpanzee railing about climate change. I better have an iced, half caff, ristretto, venti, 4-pump, sugar free, cinnamon, dolce soy skinny latte and sit down.
