  1. Damn! Every single one of them roared truth!

  2. e platypus onion says:

    Being the designated whitey didn’t help Viola Liuzzo with the Klan or FBI.

  3. Cartoon #3 is why the rest of the ACC was happy that the University of Maryland packed up and moved on to annoy some other conference.

  4. e platypus onion says:

    forgot the article for my above comment.

    e platypus onion, it’s all too unfortunately true that any excuse will do to trip a wing nut’s trigger. In their pea/pee brains, riding while black is trouble. Car full of teens of mixed race is double uppity trouble in the narrow confines of their rock laden craniums. Hate is bad enough, but this full blown irrational rage is dangerous. Now the same idiot Oath Keeper Klansmen that protected Cliven the Welfare Cowboy from those nasty LE types are threatening to go to Ferguson to protect that same LE. “Good” cops know who to detain, “bad” cops have some silly notion the laws should apply to all equally in Wally Wingnut’s White-bread World.

    Viola Liuzzo. I hadn’t thought of her in a long time. Thanks, EPO, for reminding us.

    And all of the cartoons brought back memories of the riots and burning and killing in the mid-60s. I remember I was in the hospital in Huntington, Long Island, after having our first baby. The TV news was on and I saw National Guardsmen firing into an apartment in East Orange, New Jersey, where we had friends living. I called her up, said what’s going on? She said they couldn’t leave the building. Her husband would sneak out at night to get bread and milk. They were a grand family. I’ve always wondered what happened to them.

  8. Its not just the cops who now look like the army with armored personnel carriers and so on. Here we are with the most militarized citizenry in the world. I hear every day about people buying up as many weapons as they can carry and then some. It might help my blood pressure to know just how many of us are NOT doing that!

  9. We used to have a .22 and a shotgun on the ranch. I don’t know what we did with them. I’m writing a silly story about a little town where an old man brings a tank home to protect everyone. We can use our skills like JJ does to point out how useless guns are for the most part. I think the tanks and other military vehicles are losing favor when folks are finding out what the upkeep is on them.

  10. I have a .22. (Actually I have two–a rifle–the varmint gun–and a pistol, which is ideal for offing the lamb you’re about to cut up into various lamb cuts for future use and for deterring other persons’ loose dogs that run on our land and then threaten me. This has happened, and people not far away have been killed by loose dogs while on their own land.)

    This is old-fashioned gun ownership. A purpose that does not involve harming people or their property, and an owner who does not sleep with it under the pillow or leave it around for kids to get into. Should we get wild hogs on the place, I will upgrade to something larger because a .22 only annoys a wild hog and that’s not what you want when you’re building fence or censusing birds or hand-harvesting a rare grass to propagate it, and come across a sounder of hogs. (Note: hogs are not native wildlife. We manage for native wildlife. Dogs, cats, and hogs are non-native invasive species that do damage.)

    Guns are not “useless”–they are a valuable tool in land management when used for the right thing. They do require training, skill, and discipline to be used safely. They’re not the right tool for every situation. They’re absolutely the wrong way to settle a disagreement with members of your own species. They’re the wrong way to feel “safe” because you’ve got them. But they’re exactly the right way to manage over population of white-tail deer where the deer are on the edge of starvation and degrading their own habitat, or to kill those large farm animals you intend to eat: it’s quick and less stress on the animal than being hauled to a slaughterhouse. A .22 fired into the ground will send most loose dogs running away fast.

    Marge Wood-Fake Noise (DDBS) would prolly buy your book and report it as truth that Obama has got American’s scared of losing their guns and must go to great lengths to protect themselves from the Muslim Usurper.

    Armored vehicles are so……..yesterday. Drones are the thing to buy and arm with cameras and missiles.

  14. e platypus onion says:

    Time for whitey wingnut to hit the streets and riot because……?

  15. I grew up on a farm with guns. We had a. 22 for gophers, jack rabbits and other small varmints. We had a little .410 shotgun and a .12 gauge shotgun. We used them to hunt various birds, especially pheasants. Eventually we got a .243 rifle to hunt deer. My parents were exceedingly strict about firearms safety and care and we never had any incidents. There was never even a thought about using any of them on people.

    When I shopped for my current firearm, a handgun, I was astonished and even frightened by the comments of the sales people. At the 4 different stores I told them I wanted it for target shooting. Every damn time the guy said, “Now this will stop a man.” WTF! One guy told me I should talk to the Sisters of the Second Amendment about my rights. I almost yelled, “I don’t want to shoot PEOPLE. I want to shoot paper targets!”

    Those gun nuts are Nuts! And paranoid. Jeez.
