NFL Violence is Bad but Government Violence is Apparently Okay

Americans really have an odd sense of proportion when it comes to deciding what outrages them. Several instances of violence in the homes of NFL players… disgusting. Legions of instances of violence perpetrated by the government (or at the very least the government is accomplice to it) and people barely even notice.

Sad and disgusting.

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.
