Benefit cutback angers veterans
Veterans consider their federal benefits their just-deserved
payback for risking their lives for their country. Now some think the
government is reneging on the deal.
Bush to Slash Veterans Benefits
... about 4,000 of the estimated 173,000 veterans
nationwide who would be excluded from care live in Ohio.
Absent docs make vets wait for care
The American Legion's national
commander visited a veterans clinic last month only to find 47 patients
waiting for treatment with no doctors to see them...
Today's cartoon was inspired by Bush stabbing veterans in the back while he parades himself as a costumed warrior. How could we as Americans take away any promised benefits from even ONE of our veterans? Where's the outrage?

SOME VIEWER SUGGESTIONS for Terror Alert Girl of the Month:
Laura Bush used your tax dollars
to purchase this $4000+ purse
The Reliable Source
Gee, 95% of Americans haven't even seen a
purse that costs $4000. I wonder what our troops in Iraq would think about
this story? Or how about the veterans that recently lost their health care?

Sentence Overturned Because Jury Used Bible

With your talent you should do a cartoon that
says "The REAL axels of evil" with Dubya and all his henchmen riding in a Hummer
H2 with a huge cow skull on the hood. It would also be funny if he was leaving
flaming tire marks on the Bill of Rights.
Thanks for writing. That is an excellent cartoon idea!
you people suck
Aww, tell us how you really feel.
Like the site. You might want to note, though,
that the date on the Ivins column is off by a couple months. I think it should
be 5-24-03, not 3-24-03.
Good catch Phil -- thanks. But the typo was Bill Clintons fault don't you know.
Love your site....I think I came across it
while I was reading Buzzflash. Where are you in Florida...I moved back here
again in July....I am a native who left 30 years ago....now I am back and hate
this state.....what did Jeb do????
Anyway you have been added to my favorites list....and I will let my friends know about your site.
Thanks for the laughs
Thanks for writing Maria. I live in the Florida Panhandle--a.k.a. Republican Redneck Riviera

Bill Bennett releases new book
Beware Bush mandate in '04
Chicago Sun Times, IL - May 25, 2003
... 'Remember 9/11!'' will be enough to win an election. What odds would Bill Bennett
give that the terror alert will be on ''high'' on Election Day 2004? ...

Sure, Mike. We will post this.
We are all about laughter. I am sure many of our readers will get a great
kick out of this.
There is an old
saying that the person who defines the terms will almost always win the
debate. By allowing the Dubya crew to define chemical and biological weapons
as WMDs, the Democrats have virtually handed the Republicans the victory.
Any student of military history knows that neither chemical nor biological
weapons are WMDs, nor are they particularly useful weapons of any kind. They
are messy, difficult to deliver, and uncertain in their effects. For example
many kinds of chemical weapons were used, both by passive release from
canisters and artillery shells in World War I. However, their effects on the
outcome of any of the battles in which they were used were marginal at best.
But that was long ago, one might say. Ok, then lets look at the sarin nerve
gas attack on the Tokyo underground a few years ago. The attack took place
in what should have arguably been the ideal site for a gas attack. An
enclosed area with a high density of people with marginal air circulation at
best. Even so, only 7 people were killed and 400 people made sick. More
people die in the U.S. by hand-guns each day. Should we then label hand-guns
as WMD? No, the only true WMDs are nuclear weapons. Yet, the one member of
the 'Axis of Evil' that does have nukes and has threatened to use them,
North Korea, does not seem to bother the Dubya administration at all. The
time has come
Just my two cents.
We have some fantastic readers
and you are a shining star.
