Senator Warren isn't running for president (unless she is.)
What could go wrong with the new environmental deal?
Meanwhile, at the APEC summit...
And now…. the REAL Cartoon of the Day!

Have a nice day!
“Democracy extends the sphere of individual freedom, socialism restricts it. Democracy attaches all possible value to each man; socialism makes each man a mere agent, a mere number. Democracy and socialism have nothing in common but one word: equality. But notice the difference: while democracy seeks equality in liberty, socialism seeks equality in restraint and servitude.” ― Alexis de Tocqueville
The only socialism is in your twisted mind. Your avatar gives away your ignorance. By the way, there is a name for people like you, FASCIST
I would name him clueless.
Good morning Mr Obozo, in the 1830 when De Tocqueville was in America slavery was in full force, was that equality, liberty or what. Mr De Tocqueville did have some unkind word about slavery in america, however he supported France invasion of Algeria. The issue might be equality, liberty and JUSTICE for all human. There is nothing magic about socialism or any other form of government China in Tibet Britain in India the U S and France in Vietnam.
Bozo likes to think he is displaying some form of high intelligence by using some quote he gest of some website. He often uses quotes of people who were diametrically opposed to his simplistic and biased veiws, like Orwell, Jefferson and others. He also copies a cartoon from the Disqus website to show his very narrow point of view. After he finishes his daily cartoon he shows it to mommy who pats him on his head and tells him to go back to his room while she takes another shot (oh I mean dose of her special medication).
Vern buddy… you still stuck on that slavery issue? It’s time you give it up, dude. That’s like 150 years ago. Get over it. And there is something magic about socialism: everywhere it’s tried, it fails…. like magic!
Have a nice day, Vern!
“I am afraid that there is a certain class of race-problem solvers who don’t want the patient to get well, because as long as the disease holds out they have not only an easy means of making a living, but also an easy medium through which to make themselves prominent before the public.” – Booker T. Washington
So its OK to bring up quotes form 190 yrs by DE TOCQUEVILLE, but not facts about 150 yrs ago. You could at least commented on Algeria The only people who quote Booker T are white right winger. Because the knee grows before his death in 1915, was doing so great, I heard there might have been a black prez back then, we were voting in them good conservative red state, it people like Obama and Jessie Jackson lying about Jim Crow, and that lying Rosa Park. That why you would bring up a hateful ni$$er like booker t.
Vern… quotes of wisdom, be they from yesterday or 500 years ago, are still quotes of wisdom. Slavery was an event, a circumstance, that has been long ago recognized for the scourge against humanity that it is. And it has been eliminated in America. And…. pssssst…. ssshhhhh…. dont tell anyone Vern…… but every other country in the history of earth had slavery, too. Ssshhhhhh…. don’t tell anyone… we like them hating America only and the other countries can’t afford to have Al not so Sharpton and Jesse Jerkson make race hustling an industry in their countries.
WOW Vern!!!!! Calling Booker T Washington a “hateful ni$$er” really shows what a chip you’ve got on your shoulder. No wonder you’re all about slavery and race issues. You need to chill out, bro. Get over it. Slavery has been gone a long long time. And by the way, it was Republicans that ended it and led the Civil Rights movement against the DemonRATS who formed the KKK.
Have a nice day, Vern!
“Everybody has asked the question. . .”What shall we do with the Negro?” I have had but one answer from the beginning. Do nothing with us! Your doing with us has already played the mischief with us. Do nothing with us! If the apples will not remain on the tree of their own strength, if they are worm eaten at the core, if they are early ripe and disposed to fall, let them fall! I am not for tying or fastening them on the tree in any way, except by nature’s plan, and if they will not stay there, let them fall. And if the Negro cannot stand on his own legs, let him fall also. All I ask is, give him a chance to stand on his own legs! Let him alone!” — Frederick Douglass
There are alot of countries where socialism is not only surviving but thriving. And the people living in those countries, for the most part are happy they’ve got it.
Grammy… there are no countries where socialism is thriving, only countries that are going broke at varying rates.
“Socialism is a philosophy of failure,
the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy,
its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery..”
— Winston Churchill
Replying to ObozoMustGo –
YOU ARE TRULY HILARIOUS!!!! I CAN ALWAYS COUNT ON YOU FOR SOME SELF-PROCLAIMED, (FAUX), INTELLECTUAL ENLIGHTENMENT.
However, your attention span seems to be lacking. The Cartoon is about the NHL lockout.
Have a nice day.
Are you getting desperate to find places to use your cartoons and quotes, OMG? I’m pretty sure de Tocqueville never played hockey. He probably wouldn’t approve of hockey. It’s a team sport as I’m sure you know since your boys play it. If one gets too free with their individualism, they will most likely be sitting on the bench.
Hey Metro! You know that no one is happier about the NHL lockout being over than me. However, knowing the content of this site, I’d say that my Cartoon of the Day is much more in line with The Memo narrative than is Danziger’s. He’s the one out of line here, not me. I was just refocusing the discussion to the important, that’s all. As to too much individualism in hockey……. that depends how much that individual can score, now doesn’t it?
Have nice day, Metro!
“The most terrifying words in the English language are: I’m from the government and I’m here to help.” – Ronald Reagan
Yes, if one can score lots of goals there is more forgiveness for being too individual. And fight. Fighting is important, too, if one is going to move on up the ladder to hockey greatness. I tried to play hockey. I had the fighting down, but skating was a problem, and there was no position for a bad-skating fighter. Besides, I enjoyed scoring off the ice more. Like with a cheerleader . . . or a cute little clarinet player or . . . .
You still didn’t say whether de Tocqueville played hockey or not. Now there’s an idea for you next essay: “What if de Tocqueville Played Hockey?”
Have a nice day, OMG
Compaired to Shrub Bush, Obama is exponentially better.
The problem is the RepubliSKUNKS and the Transylvania tea baggers in congress.
One glaring flaw in your cartoon, Bozo. It is the Republicans who are pushing us over a fiscal cliff. Their insistence upon doing the absolutely wrong thing economically will put us into a deeper recession. It has been proven over and over again that the time for austerity in government is during boom times and that government austerity programs during bad times merely exacerbates the problem. Prime examples were 1937 when we were well on the way to a robust economy and the flat earthers convinced FDR to do something about deficits and threw us into a recession. FDR did immediately reverse course and through massive deficit spending was able to double our economy and halve our unemployment rate by 1940. In this century one merely has to look at what has happened to Euro countries who have adopted austerity programs and the disastrous results to their economy.
Ralphie… how are you? You and I have had these discussions before. You know that Keynesian economics has been completely debunked and is proven to be a fantasy. You’ve simply been sold the snake oil by clever politicians telling you that they can spend your money better than you can. In fact, all deficit spending is about is spending the citizens future money. It’s patently false to believe that a government, which only consumes and does not produce, can spend citizens’ future earnings today and continue to grow the economy. Economic growth comes ONLY from increases in productivity in the private sector. The more resources government takes from the private sector, the less the private sector has to invest and create, the slower the economic growth. Keynesian fantasy is only attractive to politicians because it gives them a way to fool you into agreement that they can put the country in debt endlessly so that they can buy votes to keep themselves in power. Our debt already exceeds our GDP and is growing at a faster rate than the GDP. For you to even think that blowing more future earnings in advance of their being earned is a way to grow the economy only indicates, Ralphie, that your mind is clouded and eff’d up.
FDR was one of the worst presidents ever, even worse than Hoover who was a “progressive”. We already discussed this. The so-called Great Depression would have been over in the early to mid-30’s had FDR taken the hands off, slash taxes approach. But then again, he had other things in mind like the introduction of socialism to America and exploding the size of government. FDR was a colassal disaster for America. He actually had a chance to listed to Hayek and not Keynes, but he chose Keynes because it gave him a built in excuse to expand federal government control. FDR is the spawn of the devil. Obozo is that spawn all grown up.
Nice try on the “froward” switcheroo, but too bad, Ralphie. “Forward” used in the context of a political theme, is strictly a communist/socialist slogan. In fact, Forward was the name of the socialist party publications in the USSR. It is no accident that Obozo chose “Forward” as his campaign slogan. It was very intentional and he knows it. The useful idiots and morons that voted for him had no clue what they were voting for.
“When everybody owns something, nobody owns it, and nobody has a direct interest in maintaining or improving its condition. That is why buildings in the Soviet Union — like public housing in the United States — look decrepit within a year or two of their construction.” Milton Friedman – Free to Choose: A Personal Statement.
As usual, Bozo, you keep on spouting the completely dis-proven “facts” as spouted by those who are ‘agin’ all gov’t spending other than for bloated contracts that make Republican supporters even richer while conveniently ignoring the truth. FDR had our economy turned around and then he listened to the same ignorant prattling that you do and decided to do something about the deficit and immediately sent us back into a deep recession. As soon as FDR went back to the only sensible thing to do, massive govt spending, the economy rebounded. In this century the countries in Europe who have adopted the Republican agenda and gone to a government of austerity are now in terrible economic trouble. Even your paragons of austerity in government spending and fellow detractors of Keynesian economics have suddenly started screaming that the “fiscal cliff” shall throw US economy into a deep recession and their statements show that in their heart of hearts they know that Keynesian Theory is the truth. An economy shall not improve until the citizens have money to spend. If the money wasted on BofA, AIG, etc. had been used to temporally double unemployment and SS payments the economy would have immediately boomed from the sudden influx of money into the market place. Giving money to the wealthy and big business merely increases their cash reserves and does little or nothing at all to promote a healthy economy.
Evidently you slept through the history class covering US Communist Party use of the slogan “Froward”. Admittedly, I only remember it because it is a word that one normally does not encounter and I thought our teacher made it up. You have to remember that I went to school in an area that was so conservative that they shut everything down and had a huge celebration when FDR died and many decades later they considered Goldwater a Leftist.
Ralphie… Keynesian theory has been proven false time and again. It it ever had a shot at having ANY impact, it would be following a period in which the government was running a surplus. It certainly does not hold true that massive deficit spending, that is borrowing from the future for today’s spending, can have any effect in an economy that GDP is already dwarfed by total national debt. For anyone to believe such nonsense, they have to be either totally stupid or think that we can spend our way into prosperity by going further into debt.
I don’t understand how you cannot understand this basic point Ralph. Look at it this way. We are now about $16.5 TRILLION in debt (on the books). If your theory was true, that massive deficit spending grows the economy, then why isn’t our economy twice or three times as large as it is now with the largest and most massive deficit spending the earth has ever known? You see, the evidence of the failure of your very prescription is smacking you in the face so hard and you are clueless about it. But you are a typical leftist freak, Ralphie. Just like all those before you, the prescription for curing a bad situation to leftists is more of the same that got us in the bad situation. Like I have said before, liberalism is the disease that presents itself as it’s own cure.
One other point… austerity is working just find in those countries of Europe going through it. It’s just that the mendicants don’t like the fact that their freebies are being cut off. Their situations are further exacerbated by the fact that none of those countries can print their own currencies and instead must adhere to the standards that the EU is placing on them. After all, why should the German taxpayer be on the hook for the Greek worker’s retirement at age 52? They shouldn’t. So if Greece wants to finance their government with German citizen’s labor, they’re gonna have to suck it up and be responsible. Austerity ALWAYS works because, as much as you leftist freaks love to create words to demonize what you don’t like, austerity actually means fiscal responsibility, a concept you leftist freaks are totally unfamiliar with. The people will figure out soon enough that if they shall not work, neither shall they eat.
FDR never had the economy turned around. Don’t be such a fool to believe that nonsense. The facts do not bear it out. In fact, what’s funny is that there are so many stupid people who think that a president has control over the economy to the degree that they think he does. The government can only screw up the economy be becoming more involved in it. They cannot “fix” it. The economy that is most free is the best economy. I know you don’t believe this because you’re a socialist, Ralphie, but it it’s true.
If Keynesian fantasy was true, then why doesn’t the government just give us all $10 MILLION and then the economy would really do well?
One other point… I supported NO bailouts. But your boy Obozo did. Guess knowing that makes you support the bailouts now, eh Ralphie?
And Ralphie, froward means difficult to deal with. The word has no real political history. Your aged mind is playing tricks on you. FORWARD is a communist concept adopted by Stalin and the socialist party in USSR and elsewhere. And adopted, of course, by Obozo who knew exactly what he was doing in picking that phrase as his campaign slogan. In fact, he did it because he’s so brazen and cock sure of himself that most Americans are too stupid to figure it out that he knew he’d get away with it. And he was right. You see, one of the things that Obozo is a master of is doing something while he’s calling the other side crazy and extreme for saying he’s doing what he’s doing as if he’s not. Use of the slogan Forward was just another example of that.
“The Great Depression, like most other periods of severe unemployment, was produced by government mismanagement rather than by any inherent instability of the private economy.” – Milton Friedman, Capitalism and Freedom
Who still cares?
Forget Obozo, Hockey is on strike? Who knew?
How many ppl are tired of BOZO’s real cartoons?
