  1. Now be honest—what kid wouldn’t prefer Jason’s version? Looks like Frank Gehry on an acid trip.

    Nice to see Diversity’s face caught in an unguarded moment.

    @ Marbles; Actually, Gehrys architecture is already twisted and ridiculous… without drugs~
    The “kids” you refer to as liking that drug-induced wreck are a select few — they grow up, walking a path in life very different than the youngster who grows up in very rural small town, goes to the University of Idaho, marries their high school sweetheart, has several children, steps forward into local town & school board issues, becomes the local city mayor, then answers a call to higher office – carrying approval ratings of 82% as Governor of their state – taking down ‘establishment’ party types from the ‘old boys club’.

    Your Frank Gehry acid trip ‘kids’ grow up entirely different – they are carried through a ‘pedigree’ schooling, often at ivy league schools – some become the president of their schools prestigious Law Review because of the pressure to have a first minority president – not because their record merits it. Their path to state and federal Senate positions is bulldozed clear for them… and upon being seated as Senator in D.C., their wives get a cushy $317,000 /yr “no show” job on a hospital board.

    These acid trip hospital designer kids also become expert in employing Saul Alinsky tactics on their political opponents – they never realize the extreme scrutiny and ridicule they and their MSM cohorts inflicts on the conservative politician who graduated from a college in Idaho…

    So now we have such a “kid” as President – instead of acid, he loved cocaine and pot. He has written two autobiographies before age 47 (no hubris there, right?), and that hospital model that Zack drew, is going to look better than our economy when Obama leaves the Whitehouse… to begin his $500,000 per speech, speaking tours. He will no doubt set up his library foundation where his wife and daughters will each have large six-figure salaries as exclusive board officers (per the example of the Clinton library & massage parlor).

    If you thought inflation was bad in the ’70s, you ‘ain’t seen nothing yet’…
    When all the terrible damage to our economy, national security posture, and international relations becomes more evident, if you do not follow the speaking point that; “…it was Bushes fault-!” , then you will be branded as a “…racist” – plain & simple… and easily predictable.

  2. Way to project an HD IMAX megaplex image onto an iPhone screen, Steve.

    Although it’s very hard to make out when it’s so condensed, I’m able to determine that it’s a highly sensationalized, greatly melodramatized political parable.

    I’ve also heard that it’s been largely panned by critics for having an unrealistic plot and stock characters.

    “to project an HD IMAX megaplex image onto an iPhone screen”?

    Don’t you mean, “to make a mountain out of a mole-hill”?

    Actually geeknerd, what Marbles is making abundantly clear is that anything that is more than a few hours old, and cannot fit within his iphone screen, is irrelevant… (it simplifies his life).

    He self describes his wireless pop-culture generation version of; “…when I make up my mind, don’t bother me with facts”…

    These are the ideal ‘sheeple’ that the Rahm Emanuel campaign strategy used successfully to get Obama elected.

  3. @ geeknerd:

    Although making a mountain out of a molehill would also certainly apply, what I actually meant was that Mister Steve has the rather ticklish habit of coming across the tiniest piece of something and using it to fashion a gargantuan hypothesis—often regarding people’s character, motivations, family background, social standing, life experiences, etc. That this has already been done twice in this young thread is hardly unusual.
    While I won’t venture to theorize what sort of politics Mr. Sherlock Holmes would have believed in had he been a 21st-century American, I will venture that he was able to do this kind of hypothesizing with a much higher degree of accuracy than has been demonstrated here.

    The point of the cartoon is obvious. HCR was passed on this premise. Pass a bill ANY bill that is remotely associated with health care. They did it. Now we’re going to spend billions to “fix it”. During one of the most financially critical time in our nations history, the dear leader and his friends crap another social program out of their collective asses. It was sold to us as cheaper, better. Is that what we got? Unemployment? Jobs? F$%k that! I’m certainly not an economist…. Was the sacrifice for job growth worth this? I was out of work for 6 months (I know in the grand scheme of things thats nothing, still with ONE bread winner……). I’m not saying that Obama simply has to throw a switch and all the jobs are created. Yet if Bush is blamed for throwing the switch to loose jobs…. it only makes sense then to concentrate the brainpower on job creation or at least the climate that produces jobs.

  4. How does one license your cartoons for use on one’s blog?

  5. LOL.

    Not exactly what the picture on the box looked like, eh?

    Somehow this seems oddly familiar. Life is sorta like that, especially with….well…government boxes.

    Hey, well done! Led here by the interview on Frontpage.
    However, please let me turn the music off when I visit…

  6. Thanks Wakefield for coming by; are you here to help us put My Little Healthcare Center together better?

    Dan: I am thinking of discontinuing the music, since many like it but some don’t at all and I’m sure the many who do would be quite okay without it. Will try one more time to get my webmaster to create a Volume option but owing to the fact that the site comes to him second hand from an earlier webmaster there are some things out of our control. A complete absence of music may be the way I go for now…

  7. are you here to help us put My Little Healthcare Center together better?

    Well, we might be better off starting with brand new pieces from a brand new box!

    Thanks Zack. I do prefer the silence.
    BTW when will the book be available?
    I’ve got a liberal sister who needs one badly…

  8. Dan: Publisher now says second week of December with a Place Immediate Order option available through my website. Am keeping my fingers crossed but they’ve been wrong before. Thanks much for your patience.
