A Few Friday ‘Toons …

I am trying to calm down before I write about yesterday’s “political earthquake”, as CNN refers to it, in Tennessee.  I will have a post about that this afternoon, unless something even more devastating to our nation happens before then, which is unimaginable.  In the meantime, since I spent about two hours working on taxes, I am pretty much brain-dead, so I thought I’d give you the political cartoons I’ve been collecting over the past few days!

  1. I can’t help but wonder how the gun supporters find it so easy to explain some of the discrepancies in their defense vs. the obvious truth (as depicted in some of the ‘toons).

  2. I’m English and for five years I followed American Politics before Trump came to power until he caused the storming of Capital Hill and the death of a man doing his job. I knew nothing about how American Politics worked or how you voted for your leader. It was a real eye-opener. How Trump made it into the White House is beyond my understanding. As for Guns, it’s beyond words. If America bordered Russia like Ukraine then I can understand its need for arming itself, but the only people dying is fellow Americans.
    As for banning books, well when as books killed people?

    • U.S. politics has never been easy to understand, even for those of us who live here, but it became even more convoluted in 2017 when Donald Trump took office. He lost the vote, but won by a quirk in the Constitution called the Electoral College. Sadly, this quirk enables states to dilute the votes of the poor and minorities, sometimes giving the candidate with fewer votes, the win. Our gun culture is, indeed, mind-boggling even to those of us who live here. The framers of the Constitution would never have included the 2nd Amendment if they had been able to see into the future, to see how it would be misinterpreted and abused. I often say that the biggest threat we face does NOT come from other countries, but comes from the idiots within. Sigh. No, you’re right … books are the key to opening minds, to educating people … and that is precisely why some in this country feel threatened by books. Welcome, and thank you for reading and commenting! I hope you’ll visit again soon!
