A Picture Says a Thousand Words …. “🇺🇸 This One, a Cartoon, screams, #77 …. Honoring What? 🇺🇸 …. “!!


~~August 29, 2017~~

Just after midnight on Sunday night, August 26, the flag flying above the White House was hoisted back to full staff.

Earlier Monday, the White House flag had returned to its regular position even as other flags around Washington – including at the US Capitol – remained in the half-staff mourning position.
But on Monday afternoon, August 27, the White House once again lowered the flag to half-staff and Trump, in his statement said he “signed a proclamation to fly the flag of the United States at half-staff until the day of his interment.”

Drumpf has been mocked for forgetting the colors of the American flag during a visit to a children’s hospital this weekend.

In pictures posted by Mr. Azar on Twitter, Drumpf fills in one of the stripes on the star-spangled banner with a blue felt-tip pen.

JOHN SIDNEY MCCAIN, III …. “🇺🇸 Prognosticate a Week or Two Into the Future …. No Doubt 🇺🇸 …. “!!

PLEASE, TAKE A MOMENT TO READ THIS IN FULL

~JOHN SIDNEY MCCAIN, III~

John Sidney McCain III (August 29, 1936 – August 25, 2018) was an American politician and naval officer who served as a United States Senator from Arizona from 1987 until his death. He previously served two terms in the United States House of Representatives

… if only for this, I will keep the good memories and toss the bad ones!!

I found this statement on Facebook yesterday as I was looking at the many postings about Sen. John McCain’s demise.

We know that there was a feud between these two ‘officials’.

There’s one right side and one correct side to this feud.

I know which one I side with.

“Bear with me as I prognosticate a week or two into the future.

John McCain’s body has lain in state at both the Capitol Rotunda and in Phoenix, and now it’s the day of his funeral. Every broadcast channel and every cable news network will be covering it as the dignitaries file in. Cindy McCain, their daughters, even John McCain’s 106 year old mother are already seated.

There’s McCain’s friend and fellow Vietnam Veteran, ex SecState and near-running mate, John Kerry. Lindsey Graham, of course. All the other current and past Senators and House members. Sarah and Todd Palin will be there, Joe Lieberman.

Then the top military brass.

Fellow vets from his time in the Navy. Then the current and former heads of the FBI, CIA, NSA. Haspel, Hayden, Panetta, Petraeus, Brennan, Pompeo, Tenet, Webster, Gates, Woolsey, Deutch, Goss, Wray, Comey, Mueller, etc.

Rot

Then in March the diplomats. Tillerson, Albright, Kissinger, Baker, Powell, Rice. Then the foreign heads of state. Prime Minister Trudeau. Chancellor Merkel. Prime Minister May. President Macron. President Peña Nieto.

In come the past Executives, Bush 41 (maybe), Dan Quayle, Bill & Hillary Clinton. Probably Chelsea too. Al Gore. Bush 43, Laura and their daughters. Dick Cheney. Joe Biden. The crowd is hushed as Barack and Michelle Obama are seated.

Obamas

The service is absolutely PACKED.

Love him or hate him, everyone who’s anyone in Politik Americana is there to pay their last respects to the “Maverick.” Well, almost everyone.

BLineWH

Meanwhile, back at the White House …

Donald Trump won’t be at the funeral. John McCain left a specific request: He asked for George W. Bush and Barack Obama to eulogize him – and that Donald Trump, current president of these United States, from his own party yet  – NOT attend his funeral.

As far as I know, this is an absolute first in history. And just about as stinging a rebuke as anything I can conceive of. Donald Trump, whose number one drive in life is to be the center of attention whenever possible, will be confined to watching it on television along with the rest of us commoners. He won’t be sitting in the pews alongside his favorite sycophants, Mike Pence, Rand Paul and Devin Nunes, taking in that rarified air, being a part of history.

And the worst part for poor Donald? There’s that loser, Barack Obama, eulogizing McCain … a role traditionally reserved for the *sitting* POTUS. Hey! Aren’t I the POTUS? And OMG! Hillary Clinton is there too! What about her emails!? So unfair!

All this is being broadcast to his base by Fox News, as Donald pops open another Diet Coke and yells obscenities at Melania. Oh, the humanity! Whatever did he do to deserve such an indignity?

How about what DIDN’T he do to deserve it?

Okay, so I’m putting the cart before the horse here. But other than Obama’s roast of Trump at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner seven years ago, I don’t think anything anyone has ever done to Trump will infuriate him as much as this.

DTV

Leaving instructions to bar Trump from his funeral is no mere “slight.” This is a personal, calculated statement by a dying man. John McCain, with whom I agreed maybe 10% of the time, really trumped Trump with this one. He won’t show his fury of course, at least not overtly. But he won’t be able to resist expressing it in other ways. By his tweets shalt thou know his wrath.

Well played, Senator. Very well played.

On behalf of a grateful nation, thank you for your service. And for sticking it to this narcissistic fascist for all the world to see, one final and historic time.”

Let the cartoon speak for itself.

As of yesterday, when he cast a procedural vote, my respect for ‘The Maverick‘ has hit a new low.

If John McCain were uninsured, his surgery could have cost $76,000
That means that if McCain happened to be one of his uninsured or under-insured constituents, and not a Senator with his healthcare subsidized by American taxpayers, he might have had to shell out some $76,000 for his surgery – more than the average annual household income in America.

Why did the chicken cross the road? …. “Unlikely but interesting answers”!!


Ch8

~~August 17, 2015~~ 

SO, WHY DID THE CHICKEN CROSS THE ROAD?

Why did the chicken cross the road?” is a common riddle joke. The answer or punch line is: “To get to the other side.”

The riddle is an example of anti-humor, in that the curious setup of the joke leads the listener to expect a traditional punchline, but they are instead given a simple statement of fact. “Why did the chicken cross the road?” has become largely iconic as an exemplary generic joke to which most people know the answer, and has been repeated and changed numerous times.

SARAH PALIN

The chicken crossed the road because, gosh-darn it, he’s a maverick!

BARACK OBAMA

Let me be perfectly clear, if the chickens like their eggs they can keep their eggs. No chicken will be required to cross the road to surrender her eggs. Period.

JOHN McCAIN

My friends, the chicken crossed the road because he recognized the need to engage in cooperation and dialogue with all the chickens on the other side of the road.

HILLARY CLINTON

What difference at this point does it make why the chicken crossed the road?

GEORGE W. BUSH

We don’t really care why the chicken crossed the road. We just want to know if the chicken is on our side of the road or not. The chicken is either with us or against us. There is no middle ground here.

DICK CHENEY

Where’s my gun?

BILL CLINTON

I did not cross the road with that chicken.

AL GORE

I invented the chicken.

JOHN KERRY

Although I voted to let the chicken cross the road, I am now against it! It was the wrong road to cross, and I was misled about the chicken’s intentions. I am not for it now, and will remain against it.

AL SHARPTON

Why are all the chickens white?

DR. PHIL

The problem we have here is that this chicken won’t realize that he must first deal with the problem on this side of the road before it goes after the problem on the other side of the road. What we need to do is help him realize how stupid he is acting by not taking on his current problems before adding any new problems.

Well, I understand that the chicken is having problems, which is why he wants to cross the road so badly. So instead of having the chicken learn from his mistakes and take falls, which is a part of life, I’m going to give this chicken a NEW CAR so that he can just drive across the road and not live his life like the rest of the chickens.

ANDERSON COOPER

We have reason to believe there is a chicken, but we have not yet been allowed to have access to the other side of the road.

NANCY GRACE

That chicken crossed the road because he’s guilty! You can see it in his eyes and the way he walks.

PAT BUCHANAN

To steal the job of a decent, hardworking American.

MARTHA STEWART

No one called me to warn me which way the chicken was going. I had a standing order at the Farmer’s Market to sell my eggs when the price dropped to a certain level. No little bird gave me any insider information.

DR. SEUSS

Did the chicken cross the road? Did he cross it with a toad? Yes, the chicken crossed the road, but why it crossed I’ve not been told.

ERNEST HEMINGWAY

To die in the rain, alone.

GRANDPA

In my day we didn’t ask why the chicken crossed the road. Somebody told us the chicken crossed the road, and that was good enough for us.

BARBARA WALTERS

Isn’t that interesting? In a few moments, we will be listening to the chicken tell, for the first time, the heartwarming story of how it experienced a serious case of molting, and went on to accomplish its lifelong dream of crossing the road.

ARISTOTLE

It is the nature of chickens to cross the road.

BILL GATES

I have just released eChicken2014, which will not only cross roads, but will lay eggs, file your important documents and balance your checkbook. Internet Explorer is an integral part of eChicken2014. This new platform is much more stable and will never reboot.

ALBERT EINSTEIN

Did the chicken really cross the road, or did the road move beneath the chicken?

COLONEL SANDERS

Did I miss one?

THIS IS ONE IS A CARTOON … BUT IT STILL SCREAMS

We are all very much aware of the controversy that has been generated in view of the fact that the “donald” will not curb the avalanche of insults that drip from his surly, arrogant, egocentric mouth.

I’m no McCain fan yet, if anything, I sincerely honor his status as a POW.

I will leave the thoughts to you.

DEFINITION OF POW

A prisoner of war (POW, PoW, PW, P/W, WP, PsW, enemy prisoner of war (EPW) or “missing-captured”) is a person, whether combatant or non-combatant, who is held in custody by a belligerent power during or immediately after an armed conflict.

The earliest recorded usage of the phrase is dated 1660.

Donald Trump attack on John McCain war record is ‘new low in US politics’

Donald Trump attacked the Arizona senator John McCain on Saturday, July 18, for being shot down while a navy pilot during the Vietnam war.

Trump, who has been in a war of words with the 2008 Republican nominee, jibed of McCain:

“He’s not a war hero. He’s a war hero because he was captured?

I like people who weren’t captured.”

McCain was held prisoner by North Vietnam for five and a half years, and repeatedly tortured. Trump received several student deferments from Vietnam while in college. After graduating, he received a medical deferment.

Born and raised by underpaid public school teachers in Sanford, Fla., Andy Marlette graduated from the University of Florida and became staff editorial cartoonist at the Pensacola News Journal in 2007.

Marlette received a priceless editorial cartoon education while living with his uncle and Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist Doug Marlette in Hillsborough, N.C.

Doug’s tragic death in July of 2007 made evermore poignant the elder Marlette’s fierce and faithful devotion to the art form of editorial cartooning as a cornerstone of American free speech. With this in mind, Andy works daily to learn and uphold the disciplines and values passed on to him by his late uncle.
