May Flowers

Okay, so maybe you wouldn’t recognise the official Massachusetts state flower, above, on sight. That’s okay, since I probably wouldn’t either.

Where I live, the springtime weather is starting to moderate from rain showers to milder, sunnier days now, which makes it easier to be upbeat…

All right, so the weather’s better, but the climate in our nation’s capital really hasn’t changed at all…

C-Q5OvCXgAAzy2j

If we find ourselves feeling better, does that affect reality?…

ds295

Of course, some people just never abandon their already established points of view. That’s when the debates really begin!..

Therefore: thanks to the various artists whose art really makes this humble blog what it is (besides merely humble.)

It’s sobering to think that without their contributions, these sentences and paragraphs wouldn’t make much sense all by themselves.

Until next time, please be safe and may the LORD bless you all, wherever you are!

And here’s another picture of a Mayflower for all you garden enthusiasts..

April Showers

Hello! Let’s waste no time!…

Say, do you know what? That’s okay, neither do I. I hear that’s pretty common nowadays…

When people start to question your judgement, that’s when you need to reframe the question to your own advantage!..

How often do you contemplate the nature of existence?

Why not sit back and try to take the long view?..

Tax Day + Earth Day = Tearthax Day

It’s all about transparency and accountability.

For the first time in more than two generations, the United States is governed by a President whose financial life remains stubbornly shrouded in secrecy.

His environmental policy harkens back to the rapacious avarice of the so-called “robber barons” of the 19th century.

And a significant number of Americans seem to be okay with that.

Or at least they will be until their own finances are in ruins and almost everything they eat, drink or breathe is toxic.

Of course, in the end, the irony is that the ultra-wealthy will end up trapped by their own heedless avarice, imprisoned in a tightly circumscribed bubble that becomes their permanent and eternal habitat.

Of course, eventually the walls are breached, their sole comfort being that they will be the last to go. There will be none left to mourn or bury or remember them.

But they will have lasted the longest.

Well, THAT was certainly depressing! Time for some comic relief, I think!

Okaaayy, let’s try again shall we?…

An Homage to Spring

Here, directly above the headline, you see a recent picture of my former hometown (Pittsburgh, PA) taken early this spring. Of course, spring not only means budding flowers and plants, it also means the lawn begins to grow again, too..

There’s nothing like the return of warm weather to inspire the wanderlust that makes one itching to travel!…

Here’s a handy infographic that demonstrates how this President spends more time playing golf than Dubya spent clearing brush down in Texas…

Without Rick Stevens’ “Diesel Sweeties”, we’d have to rely exclusively on Tom Tomorrow and “This Modern World.”

Whatever else may happen, human nature remains a constant…

Too Good To Wait: “Trump’s Legion of Doom!”

It’s been awhile since Jon Rosenberg’s work last graced this humble blog. As soon as I saw this latest art, I felt compelled to share it as soon as possible!…

Thanks again to Jon Rosenberg, from whose mind this cartoon springs. See all his work at http://www.thenib.com! He deserves your support!

And, as always, thanks to you for visiting this humble blog!

More Political Content, Good Grief!

Gosh! Let’s get down to it shall we, boys and girls?

Golly, we sure thank all those talented artists at http://www.thenib.com! Like Jen Sorensen, for example!…

Gee whiz, let’s see what Rick Stevens‘ “Diesel Sweeties” have been getting up to!…

Happy Easter! Happy Passover!

Belated Happy Vernal Equinox, unless you’re in the Southern Hemisphere, in which case, Belated Happy Autumnal Equinox!

There! I’m pretty sure that should cover just about everybody!

Cats, Creativity & Caricature!

Let us take a moment to compose our thoughts…

There, that ought to do it.

We begin this latest installment with dependable Rick Stevens’ “Diesel Sweeties...

Our pixelated pundit likes to tackle the topic of creativity…

ds278

Do you think he has a feline companion (or two) in his life? He certainly seems to relate to them well! I don’t recall ever having seen a dog in any of his work…

ds280

We haven’t seen much of Don Asmussen‘s work recently.

Please permit me to remedy that inadvertent oversight…

Please be of good cheer! These samples of feline admiration, creativity and caricature are here for your enjoyment thanks in large measure to the permissions of the respective artists!

ds258

As always, I also thank you, the readers who visit this humble blog.

Several weeks back, while pondering where our readers come from, I noted that almost all of our readers hail from the Northern Hemisphere.

Well, a few folks must have taken notice! Since that time, our Readership Research Department informs me we’ve since seen a significant upswing in readers from South Africa!

It would seem word really does travel across the Internet!

Isn’t modern technology wonderful? Seriously, right now I am SO filled with wonder!…

Among other things…

See you again soon!

Ode to an Odd Spring

It’s been practically two months since the Trump inauguration. The standing of the United States has dropped steeply and swiftly.

The news has been filled with details of a White House in chaos and a President whose lack of engagement rivals that of Louis the XVI.

He has wasted no time betraying the desperate working poor who helped to elect him and his administration spends most of its time denying reality.

Appointees are selected seemingly without concern for their backgrounds or their fitness or their competency.

Can you tell I’m a little depressed over this?

Let’s cheer ourselves up with Tom Tomorrow

Of course, when it comes to escapism via mayhem, Rick Stevens is usually a trustworthy refuge…

Let’s hear from Matt Lubchansky, who comments on the current U-S Attorney General, Jeff Sessions…

don-t-fear-the-reefer-1-628

Okay, I admit it, I’m still pretty bummed out here.

But the world is not without hope!

Children are still being born and still being loved and still love. The days are now longer than the nights and will continue that way for about 6 more months.

And with every misguided and misanthropic step he takes, the 45th President of the United States cements his destiny as a one-term president.

Once his political base wakes up to their harsh new reality, his fate is sealed.

Now, could we please lighten up the mood a little around here?…

RSDS: Cats Can Be Stubborn!

And so can people!

First up, Rick Stevens and “Diesel Sweeties”:

ds252

Of course, there’s a reason both species have a reputation for being stubborn:

ds253

Okay, so much for felines and their companions, let’s move on to something almost as universal, courtesy of contributor Matt Lubchansky:

Some of the folks who actually return to this humble blog voluntarily may be wondering why we haven’t gotten around to something by Tom Tomorrow..

Well, to them I say:

And, in closing, please return soon!

Remember, the CIA, the NSA, the FBI, the RCMP, the White House, MI-5, #10 Downing Street, the Kremlin and probably the Salvation Army as well already know you’ve visited this humble (and inoffensive) blog.

Good luck!

Marching Along to a Demented Drummer

The last several days have seen a bounty of great art surface…

Let’s begin with Scott Bateman:

Joey Allison Sayers decides to deliver a rendition that touches on at least one additional topic:
