We’re getting a little tired of this, John Boy.

Once again, the government is being held hostage by House Republicans, led by the orange crybaby, John Boehner. Man, he pulls this stunt more often than a teenager pulls his boner on the internet. Only Boehner’s boner is that you can balance a budget without raising revenue.

The Republicans keep trying to get people to fix this phony debt crisis. Phony because they won’t allow the one thing that can really affect debt. Srsly, I’d never ask HIM to help balance my home budget. “What are THESE items, food, clothing, home…you don’t need more than that McDonald’s salary–just trim those down a bit and you’ll be doing fine. Increase the guns and ammo expenditures, you never know when you’ll have to barge in somewhere and stand your ground.”

Speaking of which, there’s another stand your ground case in Florida, a man opening fire on a carload of teenagers because they wouldn’t turn down their music. Do you start to think that some people have no idea that “stand your ground” doesn’t involve running out and shooting anyone who disagrees with you?

Enough said.

Vote Early, Vote Often, but VOTE!

  • Need I say WHICH legislatures?

It’s going to be a tougher election than it should be. Tough voter ID laws have been enacted in far too many states specifically designed to make it tough for “brown” people, poor people and college students to vote. Two important states, Ohio and Florida, have precipitously cut back their early voting hours. And the United States is still filled with idiots who think Barack Obama is an atheist Muslim born in Kenya.

Mitt Romney SHOULD lose. After all, his entire plan for the country is to bankrupt it and all citizens with incomes less than a million a year and then sell it off to China. That’s his M.O. You’d think people would have caught on to it. Certainly not the Fox News-watching crowd–you know, the ones who didn’t know how big Hurricane Sandy had gotten and when they DID hear, thought: “Good–it’s time for them America-hating New Yorkers to suffer like the rest of us.”

Chris Christie got thrown under the bus for actually deigning to appear with President Obama as they toured the devastation in New Jersey. The GOP better hope the bus doesn’t overturn–Christie is a big bump in the road.

So on Tuesday, as one commentator said, America gets the choice of turning back the clock–by fifty years. Let’s hope that we as a nation are not THAT INSANE. You liberals thinking you won’t vote because you are mad at Obama for not closing Gitmo, not getting universal health and waging war by remote control–think of the alternative. Now go out and vote.

THIS WEEK, yours truly will be in the Artists Alley at ANIMEUSA in Washington DC. Anyone who is an animefan and is going to the con, please drop by my table! I’ll also be giving panels on inking your comics and how to plan your manga. And, in connection with this, I inaugurate my new Facebook Fanpage. LIKE it and get news about my other artworks as they are produced and get progress reports on my graphic novel HANAKO-SAN, now being storyboarded.

Have a good week and VOTE. See you soon.

Please to remember the 5th of November, gunpowder treason and plot,
I see no reason why gunpowder treason ever should be forgot…

A penny for the old Guy!
