Which AIPAC/MIC/pharma/bank bought politician are you going to vote for? Don’t be surprised when nothing changes.

Voting is like driving with a toy steering wheel.

The result was a larger image that made in more viewable. At least this worked for me.

@humphrey @humphrey Her mission is to stir up shit, get people killed, then laugh about it.
I had friends go to Argentina/Chile/ Easter Island with me. They proudly wore their "I'm with Her" tee shirts. I was embarrassed to hang with them when they had them on.

heh, that cartoonist has a deeply twisted mind. not that there's anything wrong with that.

i saw a bunch of recognizable miscreants, his representation of hillary was probably the most realistically frightening of all of them.

I'm not sure whether to recommend that others enlarge the image to see the two together or not ; ).

Bob's an excellent cartoonist.

I had so many good times in Lafayette. 40 yrs ago, it nothing to drive 3 and a half hours to get to the horse race track, then drift to a bar for the music, then drive back home.
That would be a bit much now, and would require an overnight at a motel, but the music makes ya want to go for it!
To experience that music live, to get up in some line dance with strangers who instantly become your friends, is an experience you wouldn't trade for a million bucks.
I hope your holiday weekend was great!

the bluegrass was great. i saw peter rowan, molly tuttle, del mccoury and sam bush all in one long afternoon late into the evening. i am here but i'm still not completely back, if you know what i mean. i got a lot of sun, had a lot of fun and now i've got a lot of sleep and chores to catch up on.

glad to hear you guys had a great time at the zydeco!

have a great evening!

...after some late night web-surfing:

If nothing else can assuage some of the fear of death, the below advice from physicist Aaron Freemen via NPR should do it:

You want a physicist to speak at your funeral. You want the physicist to talk to your grieving family about the conservation of energy, so they will understand that your energy has not died. You want the physicist to remind your sobbing mother about the first law of thermodynamics; that no energy gets created in the universe, and none is destroyed.

You want your mother to know that all your energy, every vibration, every Btu of heat, every wave of every particle that was her beloved child remains with her in this world. You want the physicist to tell your weeping father that amid energies of the cosmos, you gave as good as you got.

And at one point you'd hope that the physicist would step down from the pulpit and walk to your brokenhearted spouse there in the pew and tell him that all the photons that ever bounced off your face, all the particles whose paths were interrupted by your smile, by the touch of your hair, hundreds of trillions of particles, have raced off like children, their ways forever changed by you.

And as your widow rocks in the arms of a loving family, may the physicist let her know that all the photons that bounced from you were gathered in the particle detectors that are her eyes, that those photons created within her constellations of electromagnetically charged neurons whose energy will go on forever.

You can hope your family will examine the evidence and satisfy themselves that the science is sound and that they'll be comforted to know your energy's still around. According to the law of the conservation of energy, not a bit of you is gone; you're just less orderly.

of a closed system remains constant; alternatively, the total energy of an isolated system remains constant. The application of this law to the entire universe is questionable, as is the application to the solar system.

The law is generally interpreted as holding that one form of energy can be converted to another, but that energy can neither be created nor destroyed. Left out of this simplified definition is that matter may be converted to energy, and, arguably, vice-versa.

be well and have a good one

@humphrey

one particular claim of his kind of leapt out at me, that is that ukraine has no internationally recognized borders. that seems an extraordinary claim given that there must have been some process and agreement when ukraine seceded from russia in 1991. i don't have proof one way or the other, but the claim seems shaky to me.
