Long time, no post. So …
Toonists are braver than the f**king msm
Terrific toons. So much truth. Thanks, AMC.
Think we’re alone here, AMC.
i am here too.
The utter callousness of the GOP makes it so hard to laugh at these cartoons because the gory ones are no different from the reality we are seeing. I’m livid
Yes, I am Ghanaian, living part in the US and working in the Africa region. Love your writing. But as mentioned earlier I can’t keep up with the meaty stuff that is provided in this great community. I might have to cut other things in life to dedicate a 3 hour daily visit to TOD. Very impressive talents; poems, songs, policy analysis, politics, soccer …. thanks for sharing your thoughts and knowledge, they matter!
Thanks for the cartoons AMK. They are all terrific.

Old saying: There’s humor in tragedy. Glad you posted these, amk, because it helps us keep our sanity! (Somewhat.)
Thanks for the toons amk!
Great toons, AMK! I have been in an out last few weeks…..so I hope all is well on the homefront? Take care regardless
GOP obsessions to sabotage #Obamacare (23% approve in Pew) and shutdown govt to defund it (27% approve in WaPo/ABC) had brutal polling week— Jordan Burke (@Jordan44) September 20, 2013

This is really disgusting and depressing.
Seen on C-SPAN: House votes to Fund Government until December 15; defund Health Care Law, 230-189. http://t.co/DUTdo1B7iN— CSPAN (@cspan) September 20, 2013
They cheer while dooming millions to a fate of poverty and lack of healthcare because FREEDOM!
Who were the two Democrats who voted for this nonsense? And why were there 14 congress people who didn’t vote? Isn’t funding the government and caring for the health of the citizens in their job description? What could be more important?!
You are so right about the bravery of the cartoonists.
Thanks for the afternoon toons.

Who seriously Loves YOU, America?
The 1st Toon and the 4th Toon are my absolute Favs up thread.
Fantastic Toons, Amk.
Mine is the first one.
Went back a 4th time and number 5 is now added to my list. It replaced number 4 from a 2nd Fav. Number 4 is now at number 3.
The Cartoonists were just fantastic. Their art is on point.
Welcome back, amk! If stupid can be indentified in a persons’ face, I’d reckon that Ed Henry guy would be the poster boy for stupid. He looks pretty well-fed also, as if he doesn’t need to worry about qualifying for food stamps. I’m outta here. Thank you, everyone. Let’s do the best we can today. Big hugs all around. Oh, and a link to UN working on policies for correcting violence against women. http://ow.ly/oPvk9
He looks constipated, imho.

Fannnnnnnnnnnnnntastic Tunes …right on the money!….
I am not fans of anyone at Fox…..so I am not going to post the video or the article.
But per TPM, HP, etc, O’Reilly called the actions of his Troop in Party Unison, TBGOPers desire to insist on defunding the Fed gov’t as Fanaticism.
O’Reilly and Fox built the TBGOPers. They could have stopped their lunacy many years ago. They didn’t for Money and profits were too great of a deal to pass up.
There really are no words. I was going to write something like “karma … ” – but short of wishing all of ‘em some bad luck, which I refuse to allow myself to do, there are no words.
and now the TP/GOP is like a snowball rolling down the hill…picking up speed…destined to crush everything in its path…i hope our Democracy will survive the crash at the bottom…
O’Reilly’s words no doubt echo the sentiments of the Wall Street types. The GOP’s civil war is about to get serious. Let Boner and his crew put on a brave/happy face for the MSM cameras, they know their end is near. It is never good when the “tail wags the dog”, as the GOP will soon find out.
The House GOP budget chief, Rep. Paul Ryan (Wis.), said the package should include instructions for entitlement reform.
“We think that’s going to be a big part of debt limit: mandatory savings, tax reform, entitlement reform,” he told reporters. “There are no savings from tax reform. That’s revenue neutral. You get savings from entitlement reform.”
“It’s basically going to be like a budget,” he added, “where we’re going to have instructions, and we’re going to have a lot of entitlement reform in there.”
We have 2/3 rds of the Government. Why should we allow them to implement what they want?
They’ve blocked everything we want, it’s our turn.
His thinking is why he is currently Vice President, right?
I got a contribution plea in the mail today from Paul Ryan. I am in Oregon and a Democrat so how did that happen? I sealed the envelope with nothing in it and plan to send it back to them in order to cost them the postage.
I called my rep. yesterday and today to express my outrage at his vote to defund the Affordable Care Act. I have also sent e-mails to his office as has my husband. I am so furious at the republicans actions. These people are disgusting. I admire the president for continuing to move forward. I really am beside myself with anger right now.
In my mind, and I’m not kidding, I sometimes picture the U.S. National Guard going into the halls of Congress and dragging out all the Republicans. I hear some of the privatized prisons are nice.
Well I dunno about Congress, but they sure need some up in Chicago right about now.
I’m beyond outrage right now Diane. I’m numb. I just wanna get on to the election so we can shove those fuckers out the door.
Hi! Birthday Lady.
I was about to post a Billy Joel: Always A woman To Me, on your birthday Tribute as a salute to your B-Day……but backed down for one reason only……..She changes her….. mind portion.
Happy Belated Birthday Dudette.
Thank you Nena. I do change my mind now and then.
I like Billy myself, but Chips cannot stand the man.[Wish I knew why] Anyway, I’d advise against posting him here, lest you feel the wrath of the Blog Queen.
Hey, this isn’t a dictatorship. Someone wants to post a Billy Joel? Go ahead. I’ll take care of Chips. (Hopefully she isn’t reading this.)
I hear you, Lady Dudette.
Japa21 bts have power.
Nobody’s Fool is a song that I like very much so I will leave it there
She will, oh yes she will.
Well go ahead on with ya bad self, japa.
I’ll be right over here in the corner watching the fireworks. Oh, I’d better grab some popcorn too.
… and I don’t give a rat’s ass about those two spitwads fake Democrats who represent red districts!
Fuck ‘em! They might was well be damned Republicans!
I agree, but in this part of NJ the dems roll over and never put up anyone who can beat this cretin.

House Republicans Line Up for Free Annual Physicals Before Defunding Obamacare newyorker.com/online/blogs/b… via @NewYorker http://t.co/UdBecncYSC— The Lovely Plains (@DaRiverZkind) September 20, 2013
You have got to be kidding me.
Oh, okay, just noticed it’s from Andy Borowitz. I swear things are so haywire, that it could have been true.
LOL I hope I didn’t cause a blood pressure spike, JB. I figured I would by-line it to: via @newyorker, since this was a toons post. My apologizes madame… was channeling my inner, VC!
Ha! I tweeted a nasty tweet to Jordan and Cantor off of that. Deleted it since, but it’s archived somewhere.
I still think they’re balls of snot, but cuz they’re hypocrits in general.
No, it’s all good, LP! Plus, I think we all occasionally “channel our inner VC,” and I get that, too.
Whoa. Pres. Obama’s on the teevee right now. LIFE IS GOOD, ’cause look who our President is!
You will notice, LP, that the glaring omission here is about Cantor’s mental health. Apparently his heart muscle beats but he’s missing everything that makes a decent person a full human being–true heart, fellow feeling and the ability to talk with, not at, other people.
@DWStweets Sorry I missed you but I never watch Obama-bashing @mitchellreports. Glad you got your message across to anyone who still does.— (@JOBoomr) September 20, 2013
@TPM @sherifffruitfly I guess Chuck Todd thinks it's the WH's duty to have correctly identified the shooter.— (@aspirational12) September 20, 2013
Chuck Todd and his ilk demonstrate a total lack of respect for their “audience”. This is a common view among propagandists.
New post. POTUS is about to speak.
Can someone explain what happens after the Senate shoots down the House version of the food stamp funding and/or the White House
vetoes it? Does the food stamp program stop from lack of funding? Is there a backstop built in somewhere? Aside from all the idiotic Republican game playing,there are real lives at stake here. People will go hungry, children will have health issues, and American families will suffer real hardships. I wish every single Congressman who voted for cutting food stamps would have to go to a needy family and tell them–in front of the children–that they voted to let them starve. Then let them spend one week on food stamps, let them feel the hunger pangs, the humiliation in the grocery store, the sense of fear and defeat. Let them lie awake at night because they’re still hungry. Let them look at the suffering in the eyes of their children–not some creatures of their imagination. Let them feel every pain and indignity they’re inflicting on other people. Then let’s take another vote.
Republicans wanted to let the auto industry fail. Here's why elections matter. #ThanksObama http://t.co/DFtligj0cz— D Wasserman Schultz (@DWStweets) September 20, 2013
