    Yeah, but pseudo-intellectual snobbery NEVER gets old.

    (I love this one, Zack.)

    This got me recalling the song from Zagar and Evans, In the Year 2525

    As it happens, back in the ’80s and ’90’s, I was EXPECTING these Lane-type people to eventually consider the Constitution and freedom to be “…so yesterday”.

    ‘Sheeple’ and those who enable tyrants (voters for Pelosi, Boxer, Reid, Coon, et al) are so damn common – our founders must be spinning in their graves-!

    The key to this cartoon is the typical focus on change. Change the way we see ourselves as a people. Change how we are proud of our accomplishments. Change how we view our founding fathers…. Remember they where Racist white guys…… Change how we celebrate thanksgiving…. A day to remember the slaughter of thousands of native Americans. (Yes I have had this very argument with my che guevara worshiping sister-n-law.)

  1. Jenn: Thanks. They’re a maddening bunch, alright– never retreating from their denigrate-Tradition down-slide no matter how the posters on the wall may change. They’ve almost made a Tradition of denigrating Tradition.

    Steve: I should have put a Zagar and Evans poster on the wall in the ’60s’ segment.

    Prescient of you to see the “Oh gawd– not ‘The Constitution’ again” attitude coming down the pike.

    ikabod: Enough packed in that comment for at least a couple new ‘toons.

    Sorry you had to deal with a sister-in-law of this sort. More sorry still for her husband.

  2. one can argue that it can go both ways

    Yeah, everything was fine until I broke the news that che was a sadistic coward. Obviously, I was “lying”. Her loving description of the man was nothing less than a lovable little revolutionary all wrapped up and a delicious chocolaty goodness, with a sweet gooey center. Sure he “may” have “had” people “eliminated”. But they had it coming! They where the rich ruling class! Oppressors! Then the inevitable hand washing with: “well Nixon/Bush/Reagan/Haliburon/Blackwater killed thousands, blah, blah, Blah…. ”

    Every Year….

    In the ’60’s, Alex has the old, traditional pipe…
    Perhaps the next time frame pic, he will have his glass or ceramic pot pipe,…?

    Perhaps we will save Alex toking on his crack pipe while watching 2012 election returns…(lol)
    [ while Devon and Allison are chasing down Vicodin with martini’s ]

    Speaking of pot – inasmuch as Californians reelected Babs Boxer, ALL their incumbent Demorats, and elected that old re-tread, Jerry Brown… it seems strange they did not approve that pot legalization ballot measure. Go figure~

    Oh Steve. My beloved state has fallen into the abyss. One of the main reasons for the PotProp fail. Was the growers, fear of losing millions in $$. Humboldt County the states foremost pot growing region was dead set against its passage. See keep it “illegal”, price stays high. Make it legal tax it…… Babara Boxer is a part of this state like a thick blanket of smog sitting in the LA basin. I have never voted for her. Why she continues to be re-elected regardless of the fact that she has done nothing for the state. Is beyond me. Perhaps it’s the “couldn’t do much worse” meme is fundamental to her staying power. As for Brown….. We are paying for the absolute failure of the California School system. Who seem to have voted for him simply because the concept of electing a business woman is somehow immoral.We thought Grey Davis was bad, mortgaging our kids future with unsustainable union pensions and billions being siphoned off for the support of illegal aliens entering the state. We will pay dearly for this. Through higher taxes and the eventual repeal of prop. 13, and the elimination of the 2/3rds majority to pass any bill in the state legislator. Those protections are now gone. If it wasn’t for the fact that I just recently got a job……. I was looking at Texas as a possible relocation site. Either way my continual stay here in my beloved state of California is becoming limited.

    ikabod – you sound depressed,… and you have my condolences!
    There was the movie, Escape from New York – now, we need a few million well-off folks and industrious citizens to ‘Escape from California’… whereby their tax collections would nose-dive.
    The illegal-amigos and street panhandlers are not going to offer anything for the California treasury.

    If not New Jersey & New York (BTW – each are losing two congressional seats!) ‘taxing & spending & regulating’ their citizens into servitude, California is closing fast.

    Funny you should mention Texas… two of my friends and I have spoken of looking for a career change to there too… and further, Texas is gaining two congressional seats !

    I had read a sombering op-ed through drudgereport today. In it described the decline and fall of the American economy. How it happened and continued warnings of allowing it to continue. Entitlements as France are finding out will at some point wreck the economy to the point of no return. No form of taxation and feel-good social programs are going to solve the current economic problems we face. Yet, socialist around the world somehow beleive that this is exactly the sort of thing we need to bring us out of this slump. Employment is a right! Health care is a right! Pensions are a right! Yet at some point the money from the so-called rich runs out. Then what? California, has now invested in a type of entitlist goverment theory. Whereas as long as their are a few rich folks running around paying their fair share of taxes, its all going to work out. Its not, it hasn’t and its going to get worse. I hope to be out ot the state the day California govener Jerry Brown asks a sitting democrat president for a hand out to pay for the crap shoot our voters rolled in 2010. The so-called green revolution has been going on now for about 30 years now. Wind farms are NOT generating the returns they had hoped. We stopped building new Nuke plants. The best thing we have going now is an electric car that still is too expensive for the everyman to afford. My fear is that at some point we are going to be living not only the movie excape from California but Soylent Green as well. One thing is for sure. The neo-libs in the california legislator are going to have free reign voting in fee’s, taxes (Jerry Browns promise “no new taxes without voter approval” is BS) that are going to rape the middle class. As I said no longer will there be a 2/3rd majority. The conservatives will be extinguished a party force next year. So I cannot rely on them to do anything that will stop the financial death of the state. We’re screwed all the way, laughing to the unemployment and goverment run food service lines.

    If there are any neo-libs out there that can refute or show me that the hi taxation, so-called green jobs, unhindered immigration, and the further abolishment of manufacturing in this state is somehow a good thing please, I would like to hear your side of the story. However, what I dont want to see is the same old well the greedy Republicans did this…… Its YOUR state now.

  3. You certainly deserve a round of applause for your post and more specifically, your blog in general. Very high quality material.
