That damned Vacation

What's Mallard raving about today?

I am on vacation and have no idea...have fun in the comments!

Yeah, we could make 'em illegal, but then Batshit and Mallard would be bawling up a storm about that.

Tinsley, I don't know if you're pro-poisoning-oneself because of Ayn Rand, because you're a paid shill for Big Tobacco, or simply because you're a sociopathic teabagger arsehole, but either way you can smoke my dick.

My local MF paper ran this strip yesterday. Soon, I'll see if that means they ran yesterday's actual strip today.

Artistic mediocrity has broken the time-space continuum!

Mallard Fillmore, going to bat for cigarette smokers. Fuck the old, the poor, and the preschooler, but if you love cigarettes Mallard Fillmore has got your back! Bruce is speaking truth to power! Speaking for those poor powerless tobacco companies against those fascist bastards in the FDA, the assholes who want to save people's lives and stuff!

Bruce Tinsley, I know I've said it before, but you are an epic douchebag.

Where's the revenue in making something illegal? Gee, I don't know, maybe in fines? Jack-Ass.

As a smoker, I know i feel better that a fucking cartoon duck is defending cheap cigarettes. Except I don't because taxes pay for things that are important, like health care and roads.

So I take it that Mallard Fillmore is in favor of legalizing marijuana so that we can collect revenue from taxing it as well. And also in favor of decriminalization of other drugs seeing as he's against wasteful government waste. And I'm sure that, being an antigovernment libertarian, he's also in favor of gay marriage, against anti-sodomy laws, and supports legalization of prostitution and gambling.

Off-topic: Turns out the lunatic who has killed almost a hundred people in Norway is a neo-Nazi who was once banned from a rabidly anti-Islam forum for being too extreme.

As is their habit, the wrong-wing bloggers over here have switched gears from "Must have been a Muslim! I saw this coming!" to "Obviously a plant--probably with the help of George Soros!--to make us look stupid!"

...As if bigots need help looking stupid.

So add that to the list of topics Batshit won't be covering any time soon:

-- The Rupert Murdoch hacking scandal (although Batshit MIGHT join scumbag swine like Nate Beeler in desperately attempting to conflate "spying on citizens and using hacked private info to control politicians, police, and media" with Wikileaks' "revealing embarrassing political info without personal gain and at great risk");

-- Revisiting the whole "Stop Checking White People At Airports!" routine (even if Batshit might have already crapped out an anti-Muslim strip last night in self-righteous, booze-fueled fury);

-- Teabaggers ("official" Tea Party 'baggers, I might add) assaulting and threatening people at a picnic (apparently emboldened by this being the rare occasion when they actually outnumbered their opponents).

Truth to power, Tinsley. You either speak it or you don't.

Tinsley's just coming from the principled position that it's unconstitutional for the government to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for common defense, promote the general Welfare, or secure the Blessings of Liberty to anybody.

The FDA does not set tax rates.

Tax rates are set by the democratically elected representatives of We The People, in Congress (and also at the state level).

Why does Brewsky hate democracy?

A $300 tax on a pack of cigarettes that's six feet tall by three feet wide by one foot deep? Sounds like a bargain to me -- certainly less by volume than the current taxes on normal-sized cigarettes in many jurisdictions.

It's also worth pointing out that the FDA has no authority to itself levy taxes on tobacco purchases, through the FSPTCA of 2009 nor any other law.
