That's funny! I don't care who your are, that's funny!
Well done.


Just put a link to your website up on Twitter. You're about to get a bunch of hits and hopefully a bunch of new fans. Wanted them to see your toon for today.


Thank you, sir. Always looking for new eyeballs. Very nice gesture.

We'll see what happens.


That pig looks just like Barney Frank. Coincidence?


Just 4 more years? I'm afraid that "ice age" they were trying to scare us with in the 70s is about to settle in.

“To preserve the independence of the people, we must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt. We must make our election between economy and liberty, or profusion and servitude. Considering the general tendency to multiply offices and dependencies, and to increase expense to the ultimate term of burden which the citizen can bear, may it never be seen here that…government shall itself consume the residue of what it was instituted to guard. To take from one, because it is thought that his own industry and that of his fathers has acquired too much, in order to spare to others who, or whose fathers have not exercised equal industry and skill, is to violate arbitrarily the first principle of association, ‘the guaranty to every one of a free exercise of his industry, and the fruits acquired by it.’” – Thomas Jefferson, Letter to Samuel Kercheval, July 12, 1816

“The mistake is one which was exposed in advance by Montesquieu: ‘As it is a feature of democracies that to all appearance the people does almost exactly as it wishes, men have supposed that democratic governments were the abiding-place of liberty: they confused the power of the people with the liberty of the people.’ This confusion of thought is at the root of modern despotism.” – Bertrand de Jouvenel, On Power
