Heimlich and Harpies

Both AOC and Claytoonz … right on target AGAIN!! … “No, I don’t really think Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a harpy. I just liked that title for the blog. I’m a huge fan of hers.”



No, I don’t really think Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a harpy. I just liked that title for the blog. I’m a huge fan of hers.

This is the AOC dress idea I almost passed over. I didn’t need to do another cartoon on this issue, but I really liked this idea. Still, I was aiming to cover a different subject but I fell back on this one because I went to bed last night without a new cartoon idea. I had an allergic reaction to something while taking a walk through the college campus. I came home, took some generic Benadryl, and crashed around 9:00 PM.

I’m still kinda in the generic Benadryl haze so you’re not getting a real blog from me today. Yeah, I’m fine. No worries. I’ll rebound and come out swinging tomorrow.

Happy Birthday to Stephen King!

One of my favorite writers … and now a favorite human being!! Happy birthday, Mr. King!!

charles french words reading and writing


I want to wish a happy birthday to one of the great American writers–Stephen King! 

Stephen King is not only a prolific writer, having created 63 works of fiction and 5 of nonfiction, all of which have become best seller, but also he is finally being recognized as one of the great American writers.

Stephen King, one of the most important and best American writers, continues to receive acknowledgement of his work on extremely visible and important stages.  On September 10, 2015 President Obama presented Mr. King with a National Medal in the Arts.



Mr. King also was garnered the 2003 lifetime achievement award from the National Book Awards.

I am both a beginning novelist and an experienced educator, with a Ph.D. in English Literature. I am not saying that to be an egoist; rather, I want to show that there are those in the academic world who consider…

Republican Fashionistas




Here’s your cartoon for this week’sCNN Opinion newsletter. Pleasesign up to get these in your inbox every Sunday.

I did a cartoon last week on AOC and her Met Gala dress. It was the same concept as this one, with a different message on a dress. I didn’t even think about what other cartoonists were doing on it, but the next day, I saw at least three (thanks to Mike Peterson’s “Cartoon of the Day” always featured at the Daily Cartoonist). And I didn’t care. I’m usually bothered when I do the same concept as other cartoonists, but I felt I did it differently enough. In fact, there were comments at GoComics at how I “schooled” the conversatives on how to do it. Ha.

So yeah, I used the concept again here, but I felt it was different enough. I stand by it. Now, I…

IOTD …. “🗽 ‘Images of the Day, Unbelievable Edition – Give Me Your Tired, Your Poor’ 🗽 …. “!!

~~September 21, 2021~~


How many times was I taught that this was the American way?

Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore.”


The America I was taught about, the America I knew, the America I thought I loved has NEVER been the America that was etched in my mind and heart.

“Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”



I never thought I’d see this in my lifetime! I never thought I’d see ‘family separation’ either. There has been no change from when my eyes were really opened to this reality to the present moment.

In a nutshell, the USA messes up countries in Central and South America and in the Caribbean, setting them to fail and fall into disrepair and despair, while they ransact the people’s resources, set up puppet, corrupt goverments and more … and then refuse to deal with the product and results of their actions.

You can see this over and over and over again!

Think: Hawaii, the 5 territories (a.k.a. colonies – Puerto Rico), Central and South America, Iraq, Afghanistan … to name a few.

Hence, this is what we now see as another crisis.

Is there any change from the previous admin? Think about it.


I don’t know what the answer is …. yet I do know this isn’t the answer!!

Gabba Gabba Haiti

This is breaking my heart!! I know about Haiti – they’re my neighbors in Puerto Rico!! … “Biden is exporting these people back to Haiti under a Trump policy. Yes, a policy written by Stephen Miller. And Haiti, expecting at least 14,000, says they can’t take all of them at once. This is a poverty-ravaged nation that’s still recovering from an earthquake from a decade ago. Haiti has no place to put these immigrants being deported by Biden.”



Thousands of Haitians have come to the United States border seeking a better life for themselves and their children. They heard it was easier to cross the border now that Joe Biden is president and the racist guy was thrown out of office after being defeated in the 2020 presidential election. They were wrong.

Yes, the new guy is much better than the previous guy, but the new guy is still using policies enacted by the old guy. The United States of America should not be implementing a policy crafted by the xenophobic Stephen Baby Goebbels Miller. Policies like that should be trashed and sent to the worst place in the world, which is probably Haiti..or Indiana. Instead, we are sending the Haitians at our border back to Haiti.

Sure, they’re from Haiti but most of them haven’t been in Haiti for over a decade. I’m from Louisiana (mostly) and…

Tuesday Thoughts …. “🌻 ‘May Your Words Be Long-Lasting Words’ 🌻 …. “!!

~~September 21, 2021~~


The power of words can’t ever be denied.

We have in our words the power for many things. The power is daunting and unwavering. We must chose correctly and use them carefully. They can build up, they can tear down, they can hurt, they can leave permanent damage, they can heal, they can lead to war, they can lead to peace. .

Use words wisely!!
