Lazy and Bored Government Employees

When you think about it…being bored isn’t so bad.

It means you don’t have to worry about gettin’ fired, beat up, yelled at, laid off, shot at or making pay-roll.

On the other hand, it also usually means you have to sit around in the company of a bunch of nameless, faceless, shiftless, sycophantic, self-aggrandizing, back-side-kissin’ dorks. After you’ve been around guys like that for a while they will bore you beyond your wildest dreams.

I’m sure that long exposure to these sort of people is a primary cause of postal-shooting sprees. That and psychotropic medications. The conventional wisdom was once that such shooters were family sorts who also believed both the Second Amendment and the Bible should be taken literally. Guys who believed (horrors!) babies should be born and loved instead of sliced and diced while in the womb.

You know, Tea Party types.

Wait a minute!  I got this all mixed up. Now I remember…I got bored yesterday and without thinking I watched big Media TV for about five minutes.  And that’s where I got those ideas about Tea Partiers. Weird.

It’s all coming back to me now. Tea Party guys are never the shooters. Now I recall. The shooters are always on psychotropic medications …and registered Democrats.

Stephen Bowers

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.
