First They Came for the Public Bathrooms, Next They’ll Come for Yours!

This cartoon is a little rough. I drew it on a yellow legal pad while waiting for a meeting to start. I got it roughed in then the meeting started and I liked the rough look so I just finished it on the yellow pad. The sketchiness seems appropriate when addressing liberal thinking or attempts thereat.

What I find “breathtaking” is the fact that we are trying to prevent Global Warming while the World is falling apart. While Russia is doing who knows what…Islamic State is figuring out how to cut our collective throats while we sleep…water in Flint is undrinkable…Obama is eyeing a third term …(I made that one up, but you felt a chill because it is entirely within the reality of the Bizarro world he has created)…a congenital liar who will resort to anything to obtain power is on the cusp of winning the democratic nomination…because she’s a “woman” (whatever that means, since we can no longer rely on biological birth gender assignment) …and all the other phony jacked-up illusory issues we face today…we are sitting around contemplating our belly buttons and wondering how our troglodyte parents simply accepted their birth gender (and those accompanying “racist” “sexist” gender roles) while never once angrily asking why Aunt Martha just went along with things and baked great cookies every time we visited her. The fact that liberal/commie/socialist/Nazi pukes cannot figure out which bathroom is more suitable for easing their primordial urges doesn’t astonish me. They are innately stupid and blinded by their need to feel morally superior to others who don’t slavishly adhere to the most current faux issues/idiocy. They cannot help themselves. What amazes me is the way such stupidity and arrogance go unchallenged by the folks among us who have jobs, pay exorbitant taxes and think their fellow citizens have a right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. I do not espouse violence, but remember what T. Jefferson said about Revolution.

And did you notice what Camille Paglia said recently about gender stuff? She (not exactly a stalwart conservative thinker) pointed out that gender “reassignment?” may be problematic because every one of a person’s trillions of body tissue cells contains a DNA coded gender designation. Arguing with each one of those trillions of DNA thingies embedded in that six foot long strand in the nucleus of each cell in your body could be tricky.  Ms. Paglia is a flaming Marxist liberal…I think. I never hear of her except when she comes up with some little item that flies in the face of liberal/commie/Nazi/socialist dogma. She is different form the standard lock-step liberals. She thinks. Very dangerous.

I noticed a story recently about the death bed experiences of Lenin and Stalin. Deathbeds are interesting places because all the sham is stripped away. It was said that Lenin’s dying screams reverberated through the Kremlin. Svetlana said her father was cursing and shaking his fist at God at the very moment he slumped in death. Why would Stalin, who studied for the priesthood, having memorized most of the New Testament, spend any time threatening and cursing a Person he had spent most of his life denying? Strange, right?

I am an attorney in Las Vegas who has always wanted to draw political cartoons, partly because I like drawing, but mostly because I enjoy ridiculing pompous know-nothings. Verbally debating them gets nowhere. They don't know they're beaten. But poking fun at them in a drawing leaves them without recourse or rebuttal. What can they do...? Call me names, whine, cuss me ... or maybe draw a witty riposte? Unlikely.
