What's Mallard raving about today?
1. Brews Tinkley webposts another lazy, one-panel Sunday "comic" complaining about the federal government.2. Senate’s GOP is counting on Obamacare to balance budget3. Discuss!
MOANDAY:"The percentage of people who don't pay taxes because they're too poor to afford food grows, while OH ME! The 2 unwinnable wars and endless defense spending and corporate subsidies and tax breaks for the super rich that I still support--wait, um...POOR PEOPLE NEED TO PAY MORE TAXES THAN I DO! I can can only stretch my Moonie welfare check so far! You think that it's easy working 5 minutes a day?!"Hey, Brucie, did you see today's Broom Hilda? Yeah, you got your "I shouldn't pay no taxes!" ass handed to you by freakin' Broom Hilda.If you hate taxes so much, don't call the fire department or the cops when your house is on fire, call a Libertarian. They'll respond just like you would. By whining about it and doing nothing.
Every year, the wealth in America is concentrated in fewer and fewer householdsBut don't worry: the Aristocracy has propagandists to complain that they pay too much!
Sunday: As far as I can tell, that big belly represents the trillion dollar plus debt from the Bush War, that was never paid for.DW
Yeah, Mallard! Stick it to those lucky duckies who don't earn enough money to pay federal income tax even though they still have to pay every other kind of tax imaginable! Now tell us how they're a bunch of greedy, lazy moochers who don't want to work! That's what Uncle Rush sez, right? And Uncle Rush would know about hard work -- why, he works a whole fifteen hours a week to get his piddling 40 million dollars a year!
TUESDAY:Mallard Fillmore seems awfully trivial, when you consider how important it is to have a working government when a disaster occurs.
Well, golly, Bruce -- clearly, you're not taking enough of that Personal Responsibility™ that the right-wingers are always going on about, because if you were, you'd be rich and tax season wouldn't be so painful for you. Heck, if you were really, REALLY rich (proof that you were taking a whole lot of Personal Responsibility™), you could probably find a way to avoid paying taxes altogether! Because that's your real American Dream, isn't it? Freedom without responsibility?Oh, sorry -- was I giving you a lecture instead of a break? Too bad, so sad.Anyway, if you really hate America that much, it looks like The Citadel is still taking applications.
WINSDAYKudos to Comics Kingdom for ONCE AGAIN rendering their site a complete and utter disaster.Seriously, guys, YOU HAD ONE JOB.
I'm not good at the html thing, but here's a link to a site that's actually working:http://www.arcamax.com/thefunnies/mallardfillmore/Anyway, in today's outing, li'l Rush's dad, Model Minority Man, mentions not having had a raise or vacation in years. However, he'd no doubt regard any suggestion that we should have policies more like in Europe, where they have such things, with horror and revulsion, being the Model Minority that he is.
Little Rush's dad needs a union so he can get a decent contract, with paid vacation and COLA."...The monetary equivalent of a living wage varies according to local conditions, but must include enough to secure the elements of a normal standard of living--a standard high enough to make morality possible, to provide for education and recreation, to care for immature members of the family, to maintain the family during periods of sickness, and to permit of reasonable saving for old age.Hours are excessive if they fail to afford the worker sufficient time to recuperate and return to his work thoroughly refreshed...."--- Theodore Roosevelt, the last populist Republican
TURDSDAYI worry that, no matter how hard I try, I'll never be able to put less effort into commenting on Mallard Fillmore than Bruce Tinsley puts into creating it.
NK's leader is crazy?Wow, that really is cutting-edge humor. How daring! how insightful!!!!!!
CRYDAY:"Life sucks, number 1,224 in a series"
Don't worry, Mallard. You are not alone. Millions of others also hope that the GOP never changes its current focus.Millions of Democrats.
"I worry that, no matter how hard I try, I'll never be able to put less effort into commenting on Mallard Fillmore than Bruce Tinsley puts into creating it."I've thought about it, and I've come to the the conclusion that you'd have to type nothing but "sucks".No, wait, it'd have to be "sux".
Re Saturday: Bruce must be trying out material for his new career as a stand-up comic on airplanes. You know, where the audience can't escape.
