Have we already seceded?

Dear Washington D.C.,

Are you ok? We haven't heard from you in a while.

You've been spending a lot of time over at Mainstream Media's house, and you frankly never call or text. Hell, you could just open a window and look out, but you seem to have installed security filters on those.

Look, I know you're really Gung Ho about this new WAR(tm) you want us all to buy into, but I need to ask you a serious question here.

Hillary Is Tobacco, Stein is Pot

Inspired by Bernie today... so I decided that it would be fun to think about the political parties and their various characteristics. I finally realized that they all have effects and general ways they make people react. Yes, they affect some people differently than others, but in the end, they all aim to alter your behavior and outlook.

Cartoon: Les Beastiables -- Presidential Candidate and Senator Marco Rubioceros!

Les Beastiables ("Les Bez"): Beasties say the darnedest things!

Today's Beastiable is Senator Marco Rubio. He has said several beastly things, yet is considered a front runner for the Republican nomination for President. Thus he has earned his turn as one of Les Beastiables.

Marco Rubio has an out-of-character aversion to marijuana; because of prison company donations?

NOTE FOR NEW READERS: This series features a new Les Beastiables cartoon here on caucus99percent every Friday afternoon/evening. We indulge in a little Franglish because the French are tres classy. But I digresse.
