Eyes Open

A reader sent this idea, just what I needed as I continue to try to battle off this bug. Thanks, Ron!

In addition to an ultra sound the mother should be required to give a name to the fetus before the abortion. Thus, when she arrives at the abortion clinic, she can announce that "I'm here to terminate little Timothy"

Better yet let's name every sperm.

2:38 anon--Your suggestion may be a good one, but it could backfire. The abortion rate would skyrocket if all those fetuses were named George Bush.

But yet we could name them all Bill Clinton and people would do nothing, change nothing, and be a dran on socity and THE CHILD would be born.
Yea Bill Clinton would be better!

Yes I forgot the E in society, at least I own up to my mistakes not lie about them in a court of law

Well, considering this cartoon wasn't a shot at any individual, this discussion sure took a turn for the worse. It confuses me though why conservatives think that by saying "But Clinton ....." whenever someone mentions George Bush that somehow it makes it OK. Its as if they can't defend Bush so they have to point out mistakes by other people to feel better about the situation.

Randy, no one is going to form a lynch mob over you misspelling a word. But its good to see that you are so worried about your spelling.

Its also good to see that you can so vividly recall mistakes by the former president from 10 years ago. I hope you are just as willing to recall mistakes by this president 10 years from now. But my guess is that you will still be saying "But Clinton..."

This is the first cartoon in a while that caused coffee to hit my computer monitor!

As a parent of four teenagers, I find this cartoon to be WAY too true to life and incredibly hilariouos. Keep up the great work.

With out going back and forth with you about Clinton or Bush I have decided to use the same lines that most Dems use when faced with a problem. Blame it on BUSH, whether it is, housing, the poor, the bad people all around the world, or a stain in the laundry. Blame it on Bush. I, cannot see why every time an issue comes up it is Bush’s fault? For example, this topic, it is not on a national level it's local but guess what whose fault is it? Let’s take a shot a Bush, by naming all the kids Bush and then we would want to kill them all. Funny could not see that one coming. That right Bush’s fault again, ask Jim he finds away to keep saying Bush is an A-hole in every cartoon. Then people blog about he is an A-hole, and everyone's going to DIE because there is a republican in the White House. What has the Dems done since they took over Congress? They promised to stand up to him, get our troops home, all they have done is passed a bunch of useless no confident votes to make is seem like they are doing something when they have done nothing. Since Dems make slipper slope arguments, I decided that if the conversation goes that way I will address it in that way. So John if someone wants to go down a slippery slope then I am going to grease it so that we all get down faster. Far Left and Far Right are both idiots, but hell that's okay because we would not be typing if not. Ten years from now I will not be saying, but Clinton, unless it is Hillary (see Jims other cartoon.) But what I don't understand is how everything- no matter what it's the Bush administration? I personally think Clinton was not much of a president; he stayed out of the way. Until he lied in a court of law. That is why I do not like him. I do know one thing; I do know is the hate that you feel in your heart for BUSH. Conservatism knows that feeling, we felt it for 8 years we he was in office. (I did good there Jon, I did not say his name you know...Clinton s name..Damn it!)

I would like to thank you for placing words in my mouth. I am very happy that you think you can read my mind and assume what I think.

At no time did I claim Bush to be the worst president ever. I am not a subscriber to the "Bush Derangement Syndrome" that a large portion of Dems do. I didn't praise Clinton either, stating that he too made mistakes.

You are right though, the Dems who were elected to Congress have essentially done nothing. Before the election they said they would do something, but after the election they have failed to deliver on their promises. It really makes me question whether or not they actually meant what they said and just have no backbone to actually do it, or if they were just playing the system. Either way they are not what I would consider to be a leader, just more politicians in it to benefit themselves. Neither side is innocent of that, and as a young voter it makes me very unhappy.

And for the record, I don't hate bush as you assume that I do. I feel that his heart is in the right place most of the time. I just disagree with the way the administration (see, more than just Bush) has run the government.

I have lost all respect for Jim after this cartoon. The contempt he shows for the dignity of human life is appalling. I can't believe there wasn't more of an outrage over this work of garbage. Perhaps sensible Enquirer subscribers have already tuned out your drivel, Jim, but that doesn't make it any less sickening.

Maybe we should abort every form of life that causes a nuisance for cranky middle-aged "artists" like yourself. Maybe the fast-food clerk that screws up the order, the elderly man that can't control his body, and the rude mother-in-law...maybe they should be put out - for the sake of our OWN misery.

Though if we are going to go that route...I know one vile Enquirer cartoonist that has been bothering me for years.

The utilitarian view of life you hold, Jim, is the same bankrupt moral philosophy the Nazi's used during the Holocaust: if these Jewish lives aren't valuable to us, what good are they?

Ohio aborts babies so they can keep the money going for the old folks (Ohio is a nursing home)
