The Week’s Best Cartoons 11/21

I thought a bit of humour might be in order this afternoon, so I’m sharing with you TokyoSand’s weekly assortment of the best political cartoons from the past week.  They say a picture is worth a thousand words, and the political cartoonists surely prove that.  I do find, though, that I don’t find as much humour in them these days as I once did.  Hopefully, a year from now we will be shed of both the diseases that are crippling the nation … the pandemic and Donald Trump … and then we can once again look outward and see what’s happening in the rest of the world, can laugh over the little faux pas that make the news. 

Anyway … thank you TS for doing such a great job finding the best of the best!

    • Oh, absolutely so! It’s funny, but … you tell people to do something, and they will trip over themselves trying NOT to do it, but if you tell them they really shouldn’t do something, they will do it or die trying.

      • There was this comment by Tacitus on the Roman Empire, along the lines of:
        ‘They make a wasteland and call it peace’
        With the Libertarians and Alt-Right (and quite a few parts of the Left too) This can be transposed as follows:
        ‘They make a choice based on ignorance, prejudice and fear and call it Freedom’

            • Truer words were never spoken. I’ve long preached that with every right comes responsibility. And, I also believe that my right ends at the point where it infringes on yours. Sadly, most people today seem to have forgotten those things.

              • Too true.
                I am as bad as the rest; but fortunately I never went into politics.
                Anyone who goes around saying in an only half joking way ‘The trouble with Stalin was he over-thought the problem’ is not someone you would even want in charge of small town council’s ‘Department for Stacking Old Cardboard Boxes Neatly’

                • Ha ha … you make me laugh, Roger! Oh … did I tell you about Boo? He got sick a couple of weeks ago and had to spend two nights in the kitty hospital. Turned out to be a gall bladder infection and dehydration. He is all better now, ornery as ever, but guess what his 2-night hospital visit cost? $3,027! He is now officially the most expensive cat we ever had! We had another once, Whiskey, who caught pneumonia and it cost around $1,500 to cure him, but that was back in the 1980s, so adjusted for inflation it’s probably a tie. Sadly, a week after getting out of the hospital, Whiskey got hit by a car and killed. Sigh.

    • Thank you so much for the re-blog, Sherrie! I appreciate it. Glad you liked the ‘toons. Yes, no party will ever be without some disagreement, but it is my hope that they will pull together in order to begin healing this nation, and repairing some of the damage the buffoon has caused over the past four years.

    • My sympathies. In the UK we have the Labour Party in which to stop ‘other groups’ in the party ruining the nation with their wrong policies they are united in making the Labour Party as a whole unelectable as a governing party.
      Without The Labour Party Boris Johnson would never have become Prime Minister
