“the impact of computer-generated imagery on contemporary art”

I tend to think in picture/imagery and that makes the images I post show what I’m thinking. I’ve always thought that way which explains why I love cartoons so much. That’s not to say I don’t love words. I do and always have. But I am fascinated by how few words the images and cartoons below use and still manage to say so much.
The first is to me, the most important. Because I do not, I cannot, understand why every red-blooded American in this country is not shocked, appalled and outraged by these people.


 While I make no excuses for the failures and foibles of the GOP, this horror is all liberal and Democrat. Both then and now!



Meanwhile, Possible terror in Fresno … but not if you read the Associated Press

A gunman shot and killed three people in Fresno, California. When the alleged shooter was arrested, he told the police that he hated white people, and shouted something else.

Let the Associated Press tell you.

The Associated Press


Fresno police say suspect in triple slaying told them he hates white people, shouted:

“God is great” before killings.

Get that? He shouted “God is great.” Talk about political correctness run amok. The suspect, Kori Ali Muhammad, allegedly shouted “Allahu Akbar” … which, in the proper translation, means “God is greater or greatest.”
If you just see the AP “tweet” you don’t know the truth. The image is a lie.
I also like the image below. Very much. I admit it plays into my bias. I still like it and think it represents a sad truth. Not that all liberals are hypocrites – just most. And when it comes to politics hypocrisy has a home on both sides of the aisle.

Cartoon images are usually meant to mock a certain issue, person or party. There are some very good ones around about the looneytune in North Korea. This one is my particular favorite, which is not surprising since cartoonist Glenn McCoy is one of my favorite cartoonists.


I am particularly addicted to the wonderful “Liberal Logic – 1o1″images. They say so much and the images help the message stay in your mind. I find the one below one of those that sticks in my mind.

Results from the Alabama Special Election are helped along by the image below. Of course the text that follows help round it out so that you understand the issues better. Still I will never look at Joel Ossoff again without seeing “Pajama Boy” .


WATCH: Democrat Ossoff Says Something NUTS After Failing To Win Congressional Seat In GA-6

“Let me tell you this,” said Jon Ossoff to a rally of his supporters late Tuesday night. “There is no doubt that this is already a victory for the ages. That no matter what the outcome is tonight, whether we take it all, or whether we fight on, we have defied the odds, we have shattered expectations.”

 Just for the record, Ossoff had a campaign funded to the tune of $8.3 million, Ossof’s political campaign funding eclipses that of his Republican opponent; Handel raised under $500 thousand. While 95% of Ossoff’s donors are from outside of Georgia, Handel claims  that 90% of her donors are in-state.

“A victory for the ages?” I think not. Even for polical hyperbole that’s way over the top. 

Liberal Logic 101 images are also very good at explaining the gun issue:

See how simple it really is?

And last but far from least I love the way Liberal Logic 101 skewers the media:

    Terrific post, Marge
    Where were the people posing as ISIS?

    • kenoshamarge Says:

      I believe those particular protestors were in California. But they are showing up in their garb all over. I suspect part of the reason is so that no one will be able to prove that many of them are professional p0rotesters and move from one place to another. The “garb” hides them.

      It also, IMO, disgusting that there is not an outcry from coast to coast about these ISIS wannabes.

      • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

        There sure as hell SHOULD be outcry abt this. I cannot believe the Left has gotten so much traction screaming abt the Alt-Right when they are dressing like TERRORISTS. WTH?

        Again, as you noted, it is the MEDIA’S refusal to show these people for who/what they are, and call them out on it.

    The 7 cases Neil Gorsuch will hear during his first week on the Supreme Court

    Following the heated, nuclear, political theater surrounding Justice Neil Gorsuch’s ascension to the Supreme Court, Gorsuch begins his first week on the job. Including a high-profile religious liberty case to be heard on Wednesday, Trump’s first Supreme Court appointee is looking at a week filled to the brim with cases.

    Here’s a preview of the cases Justice Gorsuch will hear this week.

    Case: Trinity Lutheran Church v. Comer

    Summary: This is the most-high profile case of the week. As I explained in greater detail last week, the court will decide whether or not the state of Missouri can deny access to a public playground safety program because an applicant – in this case, Trinity Lutheran – is religious in nature.

    Case: Perry v. Merit Systems Protection Board

    Summary: This case has to deal with where a particular employment dispute should be heard.

    According to The Oyez Project, this dispute began in the mid-2000s when a federal employee, Anthony Perry, with osteoporosis, worked out an informal agreement with his supervisor at the U.S. Census Bureau. This allowed him to take breaks, while making up for lost time.

    Perry was later threatened with removal on allegations that he was stealing time from the government. He worked out a retirement agreement and left his job the following year.

    Afterward, Perry formally contested the accusations and brought his case before the Merit Systems Protection Board, which hears some employment claims from federal workers.

    Perry then appealed the initial ruling of the board, which is what brings him to the Supremes Monday. The case was sent to the U.S. Court of Appeals, rather than district court. Now it’s up to the Supreme Court to decide who hears the appeal.

    Fox News SHAKEUP!! Bolling gets OWN SHOW, ‘The Five’ goes PRIME TIME!

    In the wake of the sooper-yuge news that Bill O’Reilly is leaving Fox News to follow his own career in private sexual harassment, the network is totally shaking up their schedule.

    I am heartened to see that journalism students at UPenn understand the First Amendment:
