Forever and a Memorial Day

I apologize for no cartoon last Friday (May 24) but Memorial holiday weekend doin's intruded.


Here's the thing about "forever chemicals"... they're in our blood, they're potentially lethal and there's nothing we can do about it. Go read about them now, just so you'll understand the many devils in the details.

Yes, the manufacturers, mainly 3M, are finally, after forty years, admitting culpability and vow to make amends but the product is so deeply ingrained in our culture (It's in your dental floss, my dear dudes and dudettes, and the military depends on it for a variety of destructive purposes) that the best we can expect is a little molecular hanky-poo. No more PFAS's, for example, but plenty of brand new PF(insert random letter here)S's along with many future new and exciting side-effects to discover.


Here's an opinion I'm sure will arouse no controversy...

Memorial Day should only honor those American soldiers who died in wars between 1863 and 1973 because those young men had no choice but to fight for (insert socially-acceptable reason here). After 1973 the U.S. military became an all-volunteer affair so those enlistees were mercenaries who knew what they were getting into and did it willingly, for a paycheck, and maybe a college education. Without or without all of their original limbs.

Furthermore, to be honest, most major U.S. conflicts after that
were resource wars (Vietnam was an oil war, too) so poisoning the environment of our new adversaries with depleted uranium slugs just so we can keep the Saudis happy and to save the American driver a few cents on a gallon of gas isn't something we should celebrate.

Leftacious News for May 27, 2024

Trump got his ass booed mercilessly at the Libertarian convention.

Trump has told wealthy donors that he will crush pro-Palestine protests in this country.

Oh, look... the number of abortions in the country have increased since the Supreme Court overtunred Roe.

Seven things Black Americans should never forget about Trump.

There is honest fear among swing-state voters that Trump would refuse to ever leave office.

If you need a break from the insanity that swirls around us
then enjoy the fuzzy love of The Project:

the infinite cat project

Attention, ladies! Even though everyone's body now contains cancer-causing 'forever chemicals' there's a simple way to remove them… have children.
You see, during gestation you off-load large amounts of those chemicals, called PFAS, from your system into those of your newborn. (I am not making this up)
So the more babies you have the fewer chemicals in your body! Ain't science amazing!
GOP: And that's why you should THANK the Republican Party for eliminating abortion and, eventually, contraceptives.
Lady in bonnet: But what about the babies?
Quiet, you!!
