  1. Evening all! Hey, did you see there was another shooting today:
    North Carolina Walmart Shooting: 4 Shot At Law Firm, Store In Greenville

    Suspect shot, victims injured after mass shooting – WNCT

    The cops shot the suspect in the leg and shoulder. He is alive, funny innit? (I am being snarky about this situation when an unarmed man in a small apartment is killed by FBI agents in Orlando…)

    • ecocatwoman says:

      Yes, but don’t you know it’s the guys with guns who are The Good Guys. Can’t trust an unarmed man, ’cause you never know what he might do.

      Loved the Hazard of Offering Arms & the last one, Transport of Women by hair.Act. Great roundup JJ. If it all weren’t so sad but true I might be able to laugh. I was thinking earlier this week whether or not anyone remembers what America was like before 9/11. Muslims weren’t attacked, nor were mosques. Women were nearly treated like 100% human. Hispanics weren’t talked about as if they were bugs to eradicate. And there were actually some reasonable Republicans. 12 years later & we seem closer to Nazi Germany than a fair, democratic country. What a slippery slope we are sliding down.

      • I’m not sure that closer to Nazi Germany than a fair, democratic country. but we are on that slippery slope and where fair, and we are sliding and not in the right direction.

      • Mr. Mike says:

        You forget the internment of American citizens of Japanese decent at the onset of WWII. While the German-American were allowed to roam free. Seems we aren’t as enlightened as we like to think.

    Great cartoons, as always! I like the Paul Fell one with the elephant torturing a woman and a Hispanic man–and wanting them to like him.

  3. BB, this one will make you laugh, since it is something you made a connection to last week:

    Not Dick Cheney by Political Cartoonist Chip Bok

  4. Fannie says:

    Gonna go with Brazil, 60,000 – democracy, can’t get enough. Oh, and Paula’s smothered fluffy white rice.

    Really funny cartoons tonight!

    Texas Tribune: Red State, Purple Legislation

    Texas Democrats exercised considerable influence over the legislative process during the 2013 regular session this spring, in contrast with their relative impotence last fall. While the November election results were unequivocally red — Democrats won a mere 12 of 31 senators and 55 of 150 representatives — the legislation passed during the session was decidedly purple.

    This hasn’t been a particularly bad legislative session thus far but the rules change and I expect the Special Session to be a hot mess.

    Here Is The Criminal Complaint Charging Edward Snowden Of Violating The Espionage Act

    Federal prosecutors secretly charged former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden with three felonies last week, according to a criminal complaint that was unsealed late Friday evening.

    Snowden was charged with three felonies that each carry a maximum of 10 years in prison: Theft of government property, unauthorized communication of national defense information, and willful communication of classified communications intelligence information to an unauthorized person.

    The charges were filed in federal court in Alexandria, Va., on June 14. An accompanying affidavit to the complaint remains sealed.

    According to earlier reports, the Justice Department is seeking for Snowden to be extradited from Hong Kong. The Justice Department didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment. …

  7. Great cartoons. Too bad cartooning doesn’t pay anymore.
