We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Those of you who occasionally drop by Theo's are aware of this guy, but I haven't seen any of his stuff elsewhere. Some of it's simply brilliant, some wittier than hell, and some just laugh-out-loud funny.
The author is Stilton Jarlsberg, his Hope 'n Change site is here.
And there's more to it than just cartoons. He also blogs with each cartoon, often including a clever photochopped pic at the end. There are a couple down below.
Just as impressively, he doesn't stick with the easy stuff, like economics, jobs, latest gaffes, etc. He's not afraid to tackle the 'delicate' issues of our time.
Such as runaway environmentalism:
Muslim dining habits:
As might be obvious, his blogs have a strong conservative bent and he doesn't mince words. Comments are allowed and it seems like a fun bunch.
Chris Muir over at Day By Day usually gets the plaudits as the chief conservative cartoonist because he's been around for so long, but, as far as I'm concerned, Stilton's at the top of the heap today.
I'm putting everything in the "So far, so good" category. I know two other people who have had operations in the past few months, and both of them got infections. Me, I go to Mexico and don't get an infection. What a topsy-turvy world!
Car insurance is going up, rent is going up, food prices are going up, gas prices are up, health insurance premiums are up, my dogs are demanding more treats. Sure am glad inflation is so low or I'd really be in trouble.
Having long learned not to be sipping any coffee while reading a Doc Murky post, I was fully prepared when I got to the Harry Reid cartoon. Otherwise, I would have ruined a prefectly good keyboard for sure. Damn, that was funny. That last one also might have been a keyboard-ruining moment, not to mention pretty brazen in this hyper-sensitive day. Ol' Stilty has got some serious brass ones.
heck no, it was $50 from brobro sent to the address in Key Largo I think it was.....you emailed me your address.....or someone did....friends of doc I think.....I don't do paypal or send checks.....I think your address is still in the cache. Maybe one of your friends has sticky fingers.
Ah, then 'brobro' rings a bell. I have to apologize, I've been kind of spacey recently from the pain meds, so I don't remember exactly. Do you have online banking? You could see if it's been deposited. Again, I'm very sorry, but I should be off the meds soon.
