That damned Santa

What's Mallard raving about today?

Santa, Congress, President Obama.

Ha! Ha! Ha!

See, instead of only giving gifts to Big Business and the Very Wealthy, Santa brings gifts to everyone.

So, of course, Mallard hates him.

So...ok apparently Mallard figures that the government and president are giving away to everyone...Except if we go by the usual Santa myth apparently they are only giving to those on the 'nice' list.

So Mallard is complaining that the government is giving to its citizens? Then what are tax cuts? This is a very badly designed setup.

Santa Claus a dirty, flithy socialist.

As the annual War On Christmas Season bears down upon us, I thought I'd share this li'l nuuget:

Russell Wiseman, the Mayor of Arlington, TN, posted this on Facebook:

"Ok, so, this is total crap, we sit the kids down to watch ‘The Charlie Brown Christmas Special’ and our muslim president is there, what a load...try to convince me that wasn’t done on purpose. Ask the man if he believes that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and he will give you a 10 minute disertation (sic) about it...when the answer should simply be ‘yes’…."


"you know, our forefathers had it written in the original Constitution that ONLY property owners could vote, if that has stayed in there, things would be different..."

Congratulations, Russell Wiseman!
You are
the ironically-named mayor of the week!

(And congratulations to you, Bruce Tinsley! In spite of your own burgeoning irrelevance, the neocon brand of ignorance and sheer stupidity continues to grow like a tumor in the nation's brain!)

How is the govt like Santa? The only presents I've seen are to Wall Street firms and car companies. And I wouldn't place them in my "nice" list.

I'm impressed by the drawing in this one, because Santa's feet aren't pointing at a 30 degree sideways angle like Mallard's always does.

Now, remember, kids! Unca Brucie says don't be nice and generous to other people, because you'll put Santa out of a job. You don't want Santa to be sad, do you? Now pour Unca Brucie another glass of his special yummy juice and roll around on the dusty floor a while.

And ignore that guy over there touching his bathing suit area and muttering "mmmm, mmmm, mmmm." He doesn't have a name, anyway.

Let me get this straight.

Tinz complains when the government gives to its people.

He complains when it takes from its people.

And he complains when it does nothing.

Is there any sunshine in your world, Bruce?

Iron D -

You don't understand. Taxation is guvvamint STEALING from the people so tax cuts are all good, all the time.

Nick -

No, there isn't. Only shit-colored light filters through the bottom of a bourbon bottle.

Is Bruce capable of drawing any full human figure without them looking like they've passed out on the floor? Or do his years of personal research indicate that this is how everyone ends up around 10PM?

Tinsley, note that there were no clicks on the outrage button--your ideas are so offensive and stupid, this incredibly offensive seems nice by comparison to them. I know you clicked on I agree, and, I suspect, pity, so that does not count.

Nick, Tinsley's ray of sunshine is the hope that he will, one day, go Galt. He does not realize that he and all of the other rich assholes would, having spent their lives in luxury, without having to work, die within days.

Word verification: Ungan, gan is a state of perfection, Tinsley's ideas of a perfect society is the ungan.

The Spirit of Christmas (who later merged with today's Santa Claus) in Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol" terrorized a member of the economic aristocracy into giving the working man, Bob Cratchet, a decent meal for his family and good health care for his child, Tiny Tim, with no exemption for preexisting conditions.

If Congress and Obama can do as much, I'll gladly skip my Christmas presents.
