Today's Toons 1/21/19

In Case You Missed It Dept.:

President Trump arrived at the Mexico border in South Texas and gave a pep talk to Border Patrol agents and he lobbied for a wall. Immigration is a hot-button issue. As for me, I am sick and tired of Canadians coming down to this country and taking jobs away from our Guatemalans.

President Trump in Texas said he has the right to declare an emergency to fund the wall with Pentagon money and end the government shutdown. It's become the second-longest in U.S. history. The longest government shutdown was four years, back when Jimmy Carter was president.

Democratic and Republican lawmakers traded charges in dueling press conferences after the White House compromise talks failed. It begs the question. Between all the shouting and name calling and finger-wagging in DC, how can anyone tell that the government is shut down?

The Hollywood Reporter reported Friday movie stars and TV stars were mobilizing in protest of President Trump's partial government shutdown until the House Democrats agree to a border barrier. Michael Moore is planning to go on a fourteen-minute hunger strike. He'll never make it.

President Trump threatened to declare a national emergency and pay for the border wall out of Pentagon funds or emergency disaster relief funds. This prompted an outcry from the Pentagon and Puerto Rico. Suppose we build the wall on the Mexican side of the border and call it foreign aid?

The U.S. Senate approved a bill Tuesday that will provide back pay to federal workers who have been furloughed due to the shutdown. It only fueled their outrage. Only government workers would complain about not going to work when they're going to wind up getting paid for not working anyway.

Senator Elizabeth Warren campaigning for president in Iowa Friday refused to talk about her absence of Cherokee blood, which she once claimed to get professorships and sell cookbooks. Her opponents need to lay off the silly jokes about it. Liz Warren's Indian name is NOT Grey Beaver.

Hawaii Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard announced Friday that she will run for the presidency and launched a fundraising campaign. Tulsi is respected as a tough customer. President Trump graciously welcomed her to the race, adding that if elected she'd be our first president born in Hawaii.

House freshman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez continued taking selfies inside the U.S. Capitol and ripping older Democratic leaders while proposing a seventy-percent income tax on the rich. Due to PC you are no longer allowed to call a moron a moron. You have to call her Congresswoman AOC.

House and Senate Democrats ratcheted up pressure on Trump to re-open the government this week. They believe polls saying the public is fervently on their side. To be honest, I have the same reaction to the government shutdown I had when I heard that Radio Shack was going out of business.

The FBI probed Trump for espionage after he fired Comey and met with Putin. The feds think he's too stupid to be president yet somehow he's brilliant enough to steal an election. If Trump is a Russian agent because he met with Putin, then I'm a Yankee spy because I drank like General Grant. 

The New York Times admitted it's biased against President Trump but added that they're right to be biased. They've gotten a little sloppy. The Times accidentally ran a photo of Hillary shaking hands with Trump before a 2016 debate, proving she met with a Russian agent during the campaign.

Democratic presidential candidate Julian Castro was buoyed by Obama's call on Monday for the party to promote the young. He's a committed progressive. In order to position himself to the left of Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders, Castro may have to grow a beard, even if it costs him Florida.

Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez aired a video of her Democratic Socialist proposals to overhaul America. She believes that the country has a lot of problems, and with socialism, we can turn it around three-hundred-sixty degrees. She has a plan to make the Electoral College tuition-free.

Computer issues, one of the three certainties of life. The other two being death and taxes.

Thank you Pookie

Thank you Pookie

My pleasure, as ever, Verga!

No good news here yet. Still can't get access to the (old) mailbox where today's & tomorrow's threads were stored, but if still not fixed by this afternoon I may be able to put together what I've saved over the last day & a half and post something...
