  1. Thank God the government, in their wisdom, threw all those investigative resources at things like internet poker & gold backed currencies instead of the real criminals. Sigh…

  2. You Reasoinoids are a hypocritical and pretty repulsive bunch. All that you’ve got on the enormous corporate welfare is a few jokes and a few quotes from other pundits. For advocates of Universal Healthcare you have almost endless scorn and indignation but for the government misusing taxpayer’s Hundreds of Billions of dollars so as to allow you to keep your Upper Middle Class lifestyle you have nothing to offer but a few halfhearted, sleepy, the-ideology-demands-I-pretend-to-protect-this, disapprovals.

    Millions of your fellow citizens – people you see every day as you go about your lives – struggle awesomely in slavish poverty without recourse to a dentist or a doctor and your conscience has you loudly demanding that they remain that way, but when your OWN way of life is under serious assault, you stay very quiet and very still and hope that no one will notice you silently, mealy-mouthed, hoping the government will do whatever it takes to keep the market from tanking, and your own lifestyle with it.

    I fully expect some of the dumber members here to point to the few, half-hearted, articles opposing the bailouts and claim that I’m therefore insane. The dumb are always with us.

  3. struggle awesomely in slavish poverty

    That somehow sounds like a good thing.

  4. Made some improvements, Bok, because you you don’t explain things enough.

  5. I fully expect some of the dumber members here to point to the few, half-hearted, articles opposing the bailouts and claim that I’m therefore insane

    Dude, pointing out that you are insane requires nothing other than pointing to your posts. Nothing else required. Make sure you take your Seroquel.

  6. Not bad, Jim Bob, but they’re not “sacks of money”; Uncle Sam is smuggling out those unworthy recipients of taxpayer largesse.

  7. I vote lithium!

    Lithium isn’t an anti-psychotic.

  8. I say we just let mnuez loose every Friday morning instead of Bok.

  9. I say we just let mnuez loose every Friday morning instead of Bok.

    It would be like letting a chimp loose in an art classroom. I dig it!

  10. If Uncle Sam is taking those (heavily weighted) Fannie and Freddie sacks out into the river to throw them in, then I’ll laugh.

    But I don’t think that’s it.

  11. Holy shit, go to the blog linked in mnuez’s handle. Man, did I make the right call on the Seroquel.

  12. mnuez is right.

    I’m a sham! SHAM!

    wait… what?

  13. The dumb are always with us.

    Every few days, I’m reminded of Leibniz: this is truly the best of all possible worlds.

  14. Uh, since the feds are in the process of creating a “recovery fund” to help every bank that made bad loans, this cartoon is already out of date.

  15. My God. Tulpa’s right. It’s funny to see the left (and the neocon right) intellectually gyrating as libertarians are proved right. Hell, McCain just bleated about “a strong dollar,”

    HA!!!

    As if he (or Obama) could do jackshit about monetary policy going in the toilet given BS like:

    http://www.webofdebt.com/articles/its_the_derivatives.php

    Again, HA!!!

  16. See, I’m starting to think that the “funny” comes in for the writers of the blog, who enjoy reading our comments about how much these cartoons *suck ass*. Jesus guys, what did I ever do to you?

  17. The optimist says this is the best of all possible worlds. The pessimist agrees.

  18. Holy shit, go to the blog linked in mnuez’s handle.

    My eyes!

  19. I don’t know whether to laugh or cry.

  20. Do both, Warren! You can scare your co-workers!

  21. Holy shit, go to the blog linked in mnuez’s handle.

    FTW! That was wildly enjoyable. I think it broke my brain, but holy Christ, it was funny.

    I don’t know whether to laugh or cry.

    Warren, if you’re brave enough to scroll down, there are poems! You’ll definitely laugh.

  22. Uncle Sam will soon be feeling better, what with Freddie giving him head.

  23. That was wildly enjoyable. I think it broke my brain, but holy Christ, it was funny.

    The last post was from December. I wish he’d post more. I need something to laugh at today.

  24. FTW!

    The conservative! The racist! The arrogant SOB! The depressive! What’s not to like?

  25. It’s a genre I like to call ramblecrazy.

  26. I wish he’d post more. I need something to laugh at today.

    Me too! If he’s reading this thread, maybe he’ll be encouraged. It’s nice to feel I’ve done my part.

    It’s a genre I like to call ramblecrazy.

    Lots of ramblecrazy is too monotonous (‘I hate teh gayz, teh Jooz, teh Mexicans’, etc). This in particular hit the right blend of sincerity, a staggering lack of self-awareness, and the random. Fun!

  27. Despair.com has a good poster on this situation.

  28. This drive-by poster mnuez says he was an A+ student. Yeah, he gets high marks in stupidity.

    Empty barrels make the most noise.

  29. Egads! Did you happend to read the comments (also mostly posted by mnuez) to the 12/22 post in mnuez’s blog?! How can someone use SO many words to say so very litte? This is the best link I’ve followed since the LEO blog!
