      Well, you truly are a petal!! Thanks a bazillion Amk, huuuuuuugely appreciated! As usual, WP acted up and placed your post at the time it was created rather than on top, so: fixed! Thanks soooooo much again!

      You are a Sweatheart and so thoughtful of Chipsticks and NW AMK this morning. 😚 🦃 😚 I know I am thankful for you. But I do miss you on Twitter. Are you hiding your Twitter handle? 🤔 🙄 How will you top your thoughtfulness for Christmas? ❣ Toys and more toys for Danny boy? 😉 🎄 But NW deserves something special too! 🤑
      I could not sleep 3:54am MST if you are wondering why I was on my iPad. Haveing rumbles in my tummy. 😟 😕
      Didn’t feel like ‘talking’ or ‘writing’ Hello at the time. But your thoughtfulness should be encouraged! 😻

      Didn’t the Rolling Stones have a song about this kind of, um, thing, whatever it is, ain’t human, but wears human form. “Please allow me to introduce myself, I’m a man of wealth and taste…” etc. And now I shall resume my silence and no clicks whatsoever it.

    Good morning, amk. Looks like it’s just you and me. Love these toons. As usual, they are perfect!!! Thank you. 🙂 🙂

    BTW, I am sledom up this early on Saturday. We had some issues with our security system around 6:00. Couldn’t go back to sleep so just got up. Good day to you and thanks again!

    AMK, these toons are phenomenal and frighteningly on point. Thank you for assembling them and for giving Chips a morning break. What an image the US must be projecting to the world at this point. On the one hand, we have a brilliant, cultured president with a nuanced understanding of international relations and on the other we have leading presidential candidates with the nuance and understanding of ravening beasts. I don’t imagine most Americans even realize what’s happening in this country. They’re too distracted by the minutia of bargain shopping for the holidays.

        In contrast to the beasts running amok in the Republican party, Hillz will seem like a beacon of sanity when the time comes. Neither she, nor anyone on this earth will match PBO, but she won’t be an out and out hate spewing disgrace like those other side. Husband and I were trying to imagine Trump representing the US at an international event and the images were horrific.

          jackie, The “representing the US at an international event” is the thing I have been saying repeatedly. Yes, horrific image. And it’s not just him. It’s ANY of the GOP……..each and every one is a first-rate clown. Yes, we are beyond spoiled, but I cannot imagine one of them representing us on the world stage.

          Thanks amk, for the early toons!

          Always imagine that late November means cozy weather (everywhere except coastal Phoenix, aka Los Angeles area — it’s finally cooled off and recent days have been crisp with lows in the 40s), but it’s still bright sunshine — really pining for cloudy weather along about now), good for chilling out with the TOD family.

          My belief is that Trump has ZERO chance of being the GOP nominee, he’s only gotten as far as he has by basking in all the attention — neither he nor his supporters are serious (IMHO).

          And MSM stoke the fire because it gives them something to do other than real reporting.

          However, this does ring true:

            Sadly, Arapaho, it isn’t limited to Trump. There is not one of the R presidential candidates who isn’t a fascist at heart, although Cruz is actually something more insidious.

            I still cannot help but feel, deep down, that the ‘Clinton Machine’ has put their buddy Donal up to this, in a massive and desperate attempt to make her look SO GOOD, even repubs will want to vote her in. I will hold my thoughts on this until the truth is revealed, which it always is, in the end.

              GM MP.

              Sorry to hear about your daughter’s stunning medical situation, surprising at such a young age.

              Agree with others earlier this week that your daughter has an inspirational outlook, what a gift to you and the world.

              On topic, I’m nervous about HRC as Dem nominee… those old enough to remember the 1990s as adults have Clinton/Bush fatigue, and most are ill-informed, so may vote GOP as a rebuke to her.

              We’ll really need to rely on younger voters who may be stoked by “the first female President,” and ALL Dems to spare our country the disaster a GOP President (with GOP House, perhaps Senate [?]) would be.

              As we approach 2020, it’s vitally important to leverage the progress our beloved Barack Obama has painstakingly accomplished without being distracted by obstruction, blind hatred and the GOP propaganda machine known as the MSM.

              There is so much at stake in 2016 for the US and the world — do we regress to the petroleum-based dependency of the 1950s and sink deeper in debt by launching more land wars in Asia, or do we gladly move into the 21st century?

      i post yesterday that the PA GOP has invited Trump to speak at its State Conference

        November 28, 2015 at 9:25 am

        Well, Pf, let them be associated with Trump and they will push every Latino vote in the state to the Democratic side. The GOP is playing with fire here and they’re too stupid to know it.

        • November 28, 2015 at 9:50 am

          they have found that racism wins for them..it always has…hope and inspirations wins for us…it is such an amazing thing…Jackie…i remember those long lines in 2012..folks were determined to vote…they were inspired to vote for the President…i hope that we have such inspiration and hope for our DEM Candidate..

      There is nothing in the animal kingdom deserving of being on comparison to these non-humans. I know what you mean, tho, JG, we tend to make a correlation in an effort to recognize they are certainly not human. Animals merely do what God created them to do, they do not manipulate or hate. The predators in the animal kingdom only take what they need to survive. This lot, well, you know all that.

    Wonderful cartoons..sad and true. Whenever I see one of those loons with a “Take Our Country Back”: signs, I want to scream..”back to what?” Hopefully they will soon be so off the wall that people will begin pulling back from the lunacy.

    random thing…just discovering this guy in minneapolis who has a radio show/podcast:

    really goes after republicans and haven’t seen any white progressive obama snideness so far. the republican message machine (aka “the news”) is 24/7 propaganda now, so any voice going against that needs to be amplified as much as possible.

      4more, I listen to him almost every morning. I listen on my iPhone. He is pretty good and can really rant. He is on the Progressive station AM950 Minneapolis, same one Al Franken used to be on.
      Good morning everyone and a GREAT TOONE round up this morning amk.

      • November 28, 2015 at 10:35 am

        that’s good you have an option like him in your local media lineup. the national media has become such a republican propaganda machine that is almost feels strange when you hear any actual liberal on-air anymore, or at least one that doesn’t at the same time go on about how “obama isn’t doing enough, fast enough!” i haven’t seen any of that so far from matt mcneil, which is refreshing.

    I saw one of the black ministers who suppose to meet with Donald Trump, some female who had the never to say that we need leadership that will bring us together. After hearing that I turn the channel. If she think some racists, sexists, lying loud mouth bully can bring this country together, that making fun of a disable man is showing leadership, then that tells me all I need to know about her.

    Update from my daughter, who finally was released late yesterday evening. What a week, please, no more.

    “Twitch and I are going home!
    After 4 days, the diagnosis was a narrowing of the artery in my caudate nucleus – very deep in my brain, the part that controls voluntary movement.
    The culprit, believe it or not – birth control! It naturally contains hormones that can cause this type of clotting, and side-effects. Strokes are not a common side-effect in young, healthy women, but far from impossible.
    I’ll be on a few meds for a bit, but there is a potential for a full recovery, and in a little while, I can still scuba dive! And most thankfully, my brain is as sharp as ever.
    Thank you again to all of my friends, happy, clients, and loved ones, I could not have imagined the outpourung of love I received from around the world over the past week.
    Huge thanks to both this beautiful lady Erin Gimber, and my incredible boyfriend Keith McBride, your love and smiles meant so much.
    Next time I’m in a hospital, I plan to be here helping, and hopefully encouraging others.”

    My thanks to all who walked the distance with me, we always need to love and support of those who care for us. ❤

    (She had posted a photo as well, which I cannot bring over, so sorry, it's a pretty shot!)

    Michael Dyson will go to any length to try to be relevant to whom??..i am not sure..he wrote a new hit piece on PBO entitled YES She Can! claiming Hillary Clinton will do more for Blk folks than the PBO did……Dyson…a modern day Hse Negro

    • November 28, 2015 at 11:28 am

      I don’t even waste my time with Michael Dyson. What is it that these people like Dyson expect the black President to do for black folks? Please tell me.

    Where is rikyrah this morning?
    I just saw on ABC video, the funeral for the 9 year old boy executed in retaliation. The hearst was some kind of pimp mobile and the color of the casket was bright red. What message is that sending? To me, the first thought I had was – “red”, the color of a gang. If that thought crossed my mind, what thought do you think the rival gang is thinking?

    How does it end? When do we stop killing one another? Aren’t the white cops killing enough of us?

    I’m sorry I saw that this morning. I will not be able to get it out of my mind.
