Yes, @leftcoastmountains, that’s it. Just imagine him dirtier and with blood on his beak, and that’s my baby boy.

Rats are wonderful pets! I had a couple when I was younger. Wish I could have one now, but the cat and the crazy caique (not to mention the husband) would not be pleased.
Barr channels god for evil
May he rot in hell
White smoke from white house
Fundies pray to a false god
All hail Pope Trump

These people are so far removed from actual Christianity (ie, the new testament) that if the historical Jesus miraculously appeared at this rally, at best they’d claim it to be a hoax. More likely, they’d lynch him.
And 50,000? Yeah, right. Talk about hoaxes.
Always so glad to see the David Rowe cartoons here. I sure wish I knew enough about Australian politics to understand more of his non-Trump cartoons.

I’ve been sponsoring this little hero for a couple of years now. I couldn’t be prouder. 😉
A landmine detection rat has been awarded a gold medal for his “lifesaving bravery and devotion to duty”.

alcina replied to the topic 'Why bother?' Pelosi repeats Biden should skip debates in the forum President 2 days ago
Next time I get a call from some DNC shill asking if I plan to vote, I’ll just say, “To quote the venerable Nancy Pelosi, why bother?”
Good point, @ohiobarbarian.
Of course, back then, the Loyalists were very much reliant on First Nations warriors (much less so than on the French) to beat back the traitors. From what I’ve heard lately, any similar cooperation would require some pretty serious concessions from the Canadian government. But our current government is just as…[Read more]

I’ve been seeing so many comments online about how police brutality is “suddenly” out of control, a few “bad apples” have spoiled the bunch, if only the “good cops” would do something, etc. And I wondered if Frank Serpico had any thoughts about this. I’m assuming most of the people my age here are familiar with Mr Serpico; but I’ve posted a few…[Read more]
I know quite a few people in Canada who say they’re ready to take up arms against a US invasion. And they’re not joking. Even many of the right-winger-US-apologists here want to keep our border closed. When the US runs out of clean water and arable land, Canada’s gonna be looking awfully sweet and unprotected. If only we hadn’t…[Read more]

They think age is the issue? Yeah, that’s the problem with Feinstein. She’s too old to fight against authoritarianism. I wonder what her excuse was for the last, hmmm, 30 years. FFS.

alcina replied to the topic Americans Overseas Say Trying To Vote In This Year’s Election Is A “Massive Shitshow” in the forum General Discussion 4 days ago
The US is, I think, the only major “democracy” that doesn’t have federal oversight of elections. As a result, the ease or difficulty in voting overseas varies depending on one’s last US residency. My last US address was in Seattle, and I’ve been able to vote by email or mail in every election. I choose email (yes, despite the lack of security),…[Read more]

If their expectations are met, and there is mass rioting, we will also likely see “justifiable” mass murder by the militarized police. The PTB in Kentucky have been trying since probably the end of slavery to figure out how to incarcerate (legally enslave) or eliminate African Americans. In the last election, eg, they had one single polling place…[Read more]

I imagine Barr will say it’s not expressly prohibited by the constitution, and the new-and-not-improved SC will back him up. But no worries. The DNC will take that golden opportunity to foist another high-profile loser on the people.
Every time I encounter the delusional crap from Trump-humping end-timers (including, sadly, my brother), I’m reminded of two bible passages:
“For false messiahs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect.”
For such men are false apostles, deceitful…[Read more]
