What Would Charles Ramsey do, Bruh? – Political Cartoon by J.D. Crowe, Mobile Register – 05/09/2013
A whole lotta cartoons tonight! Have a lovely evening, and of course this is an open thread….
Oh wow, I love that Charles Ramsey cartoon! Thanks, JJ.
You really outdid yourself tonight. I made that comment after looking at the bottom cartoon, but they are all great! I’m so glad the cartoonists can figure out ways to make fun of the military situation without being offensive to women!
My thoughts also. JJ continues to round up the best of ’em.
Glad you liked them, there were some cartoons that were not so great, I can assure you. LOL
Oh wow, I saw a great movie tonight on TCM, called The Horn Blows at Midnight it was so cute. Jack Benny…and some fantastic character actors…directed by Raoul Walsh.
I have never seen it before. If you missed it, keep an eye out for it when and if it plays again. What a laugh.
Benny used to joke about that movie all the time on his radio/TV show. I saw it once years ago.
Some of those one liners where great, and the timing was perfect.
NYT editorial on “Republicans’ Benghazi Obsession”
They are fund raising off of Benghazi like there is no tomorrow. It must be great rube bait.
More strange stuff about that paramedic in Texas who was arrested with explosives.
Yeah that is strange, looks like it could be a bunch of different kind of things:
As far as the “brother” is concerned…maybe Reed is thinking of the other firefighter who died, and who’s last name was also “Reed” as a:
A close brother friend as in fire fighter brotherhood thing.
A “single white female” thing, remember that movie? http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0105414/plotsummary?ref_=tt_ov_pl
A “Brokeback Mountain” thing, I know you all remember that movie.
A “Manti Te’o” thing, but with a brother and not a girlfriend.
But when you read some of the stuff he was saying in the eulogy, about when they were kids, that is just plain freaky…as far is the pipe bomb goes…perhaps this latest twist in the investigation is:
He is a serial arsonist that began fires just so that he could put them out as part of the volunteer fire dept.
He was a guy who liked to blow things up, like cans of cheez wiz and such (see comments in that link you put in your comment bb), and he was the one behind all those thefts at the plant, and he accidentally started the fire while stealing more fertilizer for his latest hobby bomb.
He is genuine nutcase who may have previously blown things up, and sometimes freaked people out by acting strange, yet had nothing to do with this particular fire and explosion and has unfortunately found himself in too deep in coincidences.
He is a planted distraction to take heat away from lack of oversight in Gov. regulations.
He is not only a volunteer firefighter, but he also volunteers as an Elvis impersonator at the West nursing home on weekends and every other Wednesday. His other hobbies besides explosives includes chemical analysis and martial arts.
I’d like to hear what his wife has to say, if and when she say anything.
Yeah, I know.
Y’all know I was kidding.
It is serious, there is something wrong with that man. I just hope that he does not become a patsy, and the investigation does not ignore the owners or the lack of regulations and just focus on Reed alone.
Go read that article the “brother’s” family says the guy wasn’t even friends with their dead relative and they accused the guy with the explosives of stealing things from the dead guy’s property.
I know the thing is terrible, and he give a eulogy saying they were brothers and telling stories about when they were kids…about shooting cans of cheez wiz with bb guns?
You know how I am, I joke about bad things when I can. It is the way we handled things when I worked at a family law practice and we would have to deal with some pretty sick awful stuff.
If you think that comment I made is over the top, get rid of it BB. It was just trying to make light of something, after all this horror coming out of Cleveland. (what those women have gone through.)

I don’t know what comment you mean, JJ. I haven’t seen anything “over the top.”
Eh, it seems like so many “crazy” people in the news lately. (I don’t mean people like Castro…I am talking the Ricin story or this Reed dude.)
More than passing strange for sure. That’s really weird.
JJ, these are all great cartoons……I love it when C-day comes around.
I love C-day too Frannie
JJ, We all love C-day!!!

I will be making my spaghetti and meatballs on Sat., which is a all day thing…12 pounds of meat this time, that a lot of meatballs.
So, you all have a good Saturday…See ya Sunday Morning.
Don’t work too hard, JJ!
I feel like the man in those dunkin donut commercials…time to make the meatballs.
Funny thing, everyone gets so excited when the big day comes. You should see how the family hovers and then swarms when I say come get it. Ooof! Especially my brother Denny. His spider senses always know just when his big meatball sandwich is ready. Y’all have a good day. The garlic is just starting to roast up fine, and I need to start working on the onions.
