Political Cartoonage

Thanks to the mods for starting this forum!  I like politics in small doses, but I also like them contained.

I've been thinking for some time we need a thread for political cartooning.  I'm not fussy about party - anything that makes a point, I believe it's fair game.

I'll start off with this one:

This 1916 political cartoon appeared as the nation debated new restrictions on immigration. (source: Library of Congress)

The leading Republican candidate is advocating a religious test.  I feel like jumping into this cartoon, announcing to the class ...   "Stand Back, I'm going to try SCIENCE"

I give up, I can't edit out the duplicate image (below)...I blame Trump.

@ALM7  Both so appropriate!

I had an image that wouldn't die a couple months ago.  I tried everything - cleared my cache, rebooted, deleted and re-deleted.  I finally had to beg Curious to use her magical powers - I couldn't beat the glitch.

Don't know how many people remember the famous Bloom County - but Berke Breathed is sharing his wizardry on FB these days.  I love that he can comment almost in real time name.

(And boy, does he.)

Funny! I like them politics contained, too.

But I also like talking about them, so, hurray! Politics forum!

Political cartoons are a great way to express views (meaningful, ironic, humorous, etc) of politics in a funny way. And some people post the funnest such. I've seen some comics & posts that are right on point. I thought the readers of Free Jinger would like these.

PS - Please share other political cartoons and funny posts you find on this tread. Everybody could use a laugh. Especially this political cycle! 

I just saw another thread like this one. Can the mods please combine.

      Now thats the cats out of the bag, it feels nice to finally talk about it.
      Mr. Dilly and I are excited, definitely alot of nerves during the first trimester. Had the worst morning sickness, finally getting appetite back and I've been craving spinach dip and refried beans.

      Are you an I Love Lucy fan?
      My two favorite episodes are "The Freezer" and "Lucy Does a TV Commercial."

      My mother's family's farm (in northern California) was the stable touchstone of my childhood, the place we went for many holidays & most summers, if only for a week or two at a time. My mother was a travel enthusiast, my father was in the military, my younger sister & I grew up in the back of a car. Been in every state in the union except maybe North Dakota, spent three months in Europe, three months in Mexico -- all before I was a teen. I realized, as an adult, I don't actually like traveling. It makes me anxious. My mother kept traveling up until shortly before she died.

      This place is much nicer when there aren’t drunk douche nozzles trying to start WWIII with my sister. 

      Last time I was here I brought my sister. There was a drunk douche cannon holding court here. He and my sister took mutual exeception to each other. Well he first then my sister responded.
      We got out of there before he got even dumber since there’s another brewery across the street.  Drunk fucker didn’t follow us and I think some flashing lights a few minutes later were for him.

      On the one hand, my mother did her best to raise my sibling & I secular & liberal/leftish, but on the other hand she regularly shipped me off to stay with her fundie farmwife mother for months at a time. I prolly spent at least a coupla years of my childhood out on that farm where my grandmother did her darnedest to convert me to all the regressive things (hilariously, all it did was push me further into the peacenik thing). I've got a lot more to say about my maternal grama, fwiw.

      I want to paint my hallway bright orange, my sons room bright sea green, and then the dilemma: What color for the laundry?

      Since April we have been looking for a house that has at least one bedroom on the main floor in one of several neighborhoods that are not too far (half hour or less) from our doctors and our kids.  We keep escalating what we are willing to pay.  We keep relaxing the “must haves” — but every house we have wanted has either gone under contract before we even saw it, or gone under contract as we were in the process of offering for it.  It is very discouraging.  I feel that I am living in limbo ever since the pandemic.
