Maybe you should include some democracts in that image. Especially Hillary and her billion dollar health care plan or the recent health care plan passed by congress and vetoed by the President which would have provided health care coverage for children up to 80,000.

HereĀ“s what we are going to do, I'm going to say that you already used this idea back in the 80's with Reagan... and you are going to forgive me for being such a hardcore Borgman fan...

A refinement of trickle-down economics. Now they just let the debt trickle-down through nine or ten generations. If Al-Qaeda doesn't kill us, the debt will.

Way to go Jim I knew you would find away to say "I hate Bush!" in a new old way. Keep up the good work and maybe the Dems in office might not vote for the next bill that ask for spending on this stupid war!!! By the way is it a war since the Congress did not declare war?

Hey Jim,
My wife and I just had our first child. She's almost 3 months now, so this sort of thing has really been on my mind lately. Thanks for putting it so succinctly. I'm going to print it out to put in her baby book!

I refuse to be lectured by someone who plagiarizes someone elses work... Jeff MacNelly did this EXACT cartoon in the early 80s. (I'd post the pic, but I'd have to scan it in). Hey Jim -- fess up or lose credibility forever. (If you were a journalist stealing an editorial, you'd be fired). If I find a way to post the original, I will.

Sorry, but funny cartoons never go out of style. NEVER. At least he doesn't label his characters like L.D. used to.

Hey Mr. Crate, the cartoon you are talking about it's a Borgman cartoon, you'll find it in Jim's "The great comunicator" book, if he wanted to reuse HIS idea it's his problem, but is not someone else's cartoon.

TO LEE: Congratulations on your baby daughter. My advice to you is start saving for her education.

Then, pray hard that Republians stay in office and hopefully regain control of the congress.

There is much to be done. We will have to deal with Iran at some point in time.

I feel that Hillary lacks the understand of a strong and effective CIA. The CIA can be instrumental in the overthrow of the Venezualian government thus getting rid of that evil socialist.

At some point we need to get to ANWAR and begin oil exploration.

World peace through cheap oil will change things and your daughter will have a good and productive life.

Sixty years from now when she is 60 she will be retired and because of her hard work she will be planning her many travels of the world. She will laugh at the concept of "carbon footprint" because at some point in her young life the normal people will regain control of things.

Nice to see proper grammar return, but the nonsense still flows! Time for more reality checks . . .

"Pray hard that Republicans stay in office and hopefully regain control of the congress." Apparently someone's been in a coma for the last eight years, and still thinks Republicans are a viable party. Maybe when the corruption and the religious right are purged, but until then . . .

If we must eventually "deal with Iran," it'd better be with people who actually know diplomacy, not the kind who would get us into another Iraq fiasco . . .

Use the CIA to usurp the democratically elected Hugo Chavez?! How 1950's! (shades of Guatemala and Chile) Sorry, we are beyond that kind of thuggery; just boycott Citgo if you must . . .

ANWAR will continue to be an untouched land; recent oil spills from horribly maintained BP pipelines have shown any further encroachment there is not to be trusted, certainly not worth about six month's worth of oil.

Here's a better idea than "cheap oil": start a new Manhattan Project to find a reliable alternative, making oil irrelevant.

Maybe in the next 60 years, people will have made the right decisions; maybe coastal cities won't be underwater; maybe glaciers will no longer be receding at alarming rates; maybe Category 5 cyclones and other extreme weather won't be the norm; maybe the deniers will still be crowing in some dark corner, ignored and desperate for more attention, while the rest of the world moves on.

Looks like another "Phony" soldier is speaking out against the war in Iraq!

From: http://www.cnn.com/2007/POLITICS/10/13/iraq.sanchez/index.html

"Retired Lt. Gen. Ricardo Sanchez, coalition commander in 2003 and 2004, called the Iraq war "a nightmare with no end in sight," for which he said the Bush administration, the State Department and Congress all share blame."

I hope Mr. Grate posts the MacNelly cartoon. I'll bet the cartoon was in reference to the Reagan administration. MacNelly drew brilliant cartoons critical of both Carter and Reagan during my years in high school and in college while living in Montana.

CHECK OUT PETER BRONSON'S SUNDAY ARTICLE: PEACE PRIZE FOR GORE'S 'TRUTH' IS LIKE LITERATURE PRIZE FOR COMIC BOOK.

Brilliant Bronson exposes the fact that a British court ruled Gore's film is "alarmist and exaggerated and must have warnings to point NINE SCIENTIFIC ERRORS.

This nonsense has nothing to do with the environment. This is a ploy for government to get control over behavior, private property and private assets.

Jim you are right on with this cartoon...but you'd be even more right if you added somehow all the pork and waste that come sout every year in the budget.

Doesn't matter if its republicans or democrats in charge. They will continue to watse tax money as long as thee is air to breathe.

Hmmm, never mind that the award was for his efforts over the last years to spread Global Climate Change awareness, with An Inconvenient Truth the frosting on the cake; it seems some third rate hack, and "a British Court" trump most of the world's climate scientists, and the reality around us . . . well, in some bizarro world . . .

To Reality Check:

President George H.W. Bush was absolutely correct when he refered to Mr. Gore as "Ozone man".

 
at 10/17/07, 11:17 PM Anonymous Reality Check said...

Ah yes, that's yet another reason Daddy Bush lost that election: bowing to the far right, and saying ridiculous stuff like that!

they sort of look like the original signers of the declaration of independence, don't they?
