Thats horrible. Totally not the in the spirit of the yellow ribbon campaign and not at all want the Maupin family stands for.

There are certain things you should let stand for what they stand for, and this is one of those.

We all get the point, you are a liberal who thinks that war is wrong.

Thanks so much for finishing this one.

It's "liberal" to look forward to the day the soldiers all come home? I thought everybody looked forward to their homecoming.

Okay, I thought that the yellow ribbon campaign stood for the safe return home of our soldiers?

And Jim, you are correct. It's not a liberal to look forward to the soldiers coming home. It's a HUMAN thing to do.

I'm not a liberal but this war and this President is WRONG.
Being a conservative doesn't mean "go along with the program".

Why is this a liberal or conservative thread?

Unlike in Vietnam, the American people are united in their support of our soldiers. Some show their support by lobbying for the logistics to successfully continue fighting. Some show their support by wanting the troops home sooner.

But the yellow ribbon, at least to me, is a show of support wishing that ALL of our troops will come home eventually.

I think the cartoon is a masterpiece.

beware, jim. this is how i read it:
yellow ribbon = support the troops. the dad is obviously thinking about taking down the ribbon. instead, he wistfully thinks of a day when they ALL come home. well if you're saying matt "went home," then the cartoon reads that we should support our troops until they're all dead.

Oy vey.

Clearly, the ribbon says "Matt" on it. So one can assume it was tied on there for him.

interesting that nobody commented on the fact that the ribbon has been there so long, its cutting into the tree.

Anonymous 8:49 what the hell was that? How do you get wanting them all to come home Dead???

The yellow ribbon campaign was started to keep Matt in our thoughts and prayers until he came home alive and well, along with all our other service members serving our country. After a time I think it became apparent that Matt wasn't coming come alive, we just wanted him home; period.

We have that now, we have closure and the yellow ribbons remain in honor of those still serving so that they may at least come home safe and alive.

The 'pinched' tree merely illustrates how long we have waited and hoped for Matt and now we will continue to wait for and support his fellow soldiers until their safe return home.

I don't often agree with Jim's political views, but I was touched by this drawing.

I'm glad you found a way to use this drawing.

Very touching

Think Calling them liberal,covers the truth.This is a corporation war for oil. The troops enlisted in the foreign legion,the yellow ribbon gave the corporation cover. I want the troops home. Not B S
