Those damned taxes

What's Mallard raving about today?

Teachers, taxes.

Hi, it's me Mr. Secretary of Defense. Support the Iraq War. Pay your taxes and shut up.

Hi, it's me Mr. Secretary of Homeland Security. Support warrantless wiretapping of your phone. Pay your taxes and shut up.

Hi, it's me Mr. Attorney General. Support turning the Justice Department into the law enforcement arm of the Republican Party. Pay your taxes and shut up.

Sorry, Mallard. You don't get to agree with the way every tax dollar gets spent. Welcome to the Social Contract.

Knew this teacher-bashing horseshit eventually had to get into Tinny's beloved My Tax Dollars Were Stolen From Me To Pay For This ?!?!? But It Doesn't Benefit Me Directly!!! Not Fair!!! stupidity.

Surprised it took so long, that's all.

Pardon my French, by the way.

It takes some unmitigated gall to characterize the past several days' slanderous teacher-bashing as constructive "criticism"--which is what Tinny's ALSO trying to do with this strip.

Libelous, Billy, not slanderous. Remember, slander is spoken.

Your French doesn't need pardoning, though: calling a Mallard strip "horseshit" is simply stating objective fact.

Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for Bruce Tinsley.
