Wednesday Hump Day #tRump Day Cartoon Day


Yeah, what the hell…lets just dive in!

Luchovich is a master.

Here is the link for that top cartoon which Luckovich titled “Flammable.”

11/23 Mike Luckovich: Ask not… | Mike Luckovich

 

On to Bagley…if you aren’t following his twitter feed, you should.

He is one of those political cartoonist who makes a statement with every word he tweets.

Did you all see the “official” photo from last night’s dinner date between tRump and Romney…I guess it was the one that tRump approved for publishing:

This is all I have for you today.

My mother has just been diagnosed with malignant ovarian cancer. We don’t know what stage it is in…or what treatment, if any…is available. As you can imagine things are fucking hell at home. She sees the specialist, a gynecologist oncologist on the 12th.

Anyway, going forward… my Wednesday threads will be a round-up of political cartoons. This has always been one of my favorite post to put up…they are quick and fun, and still substantial because I think political editorial cartoons are so essential in this political climate. Especially now that tRump is in and any chance of the media or press holding him accountable for his actions is out.

This is an open thread.

    It looks like the Bagley cartoons are not working…I am fixing those/reformatting those.

  2. Enheduanna says:

    JJ – I’m sorry to hear about your mother. My mom is scheduled for a hysterectomy Dec. 6 for uterine cancer – but they caught it early and this operation will take care of it. She is 86, though, so the operation itself is scary for me.

    Mom keeps telling us if anything goes wrong to file with the class-action suit against talcum powder companies. She used it liberally and now it is linked to ovarian cancer anyway.

    I am hoping for the best for both you and your Mom.

    • janicen says:

      I’m very sorry, Enh. Surgery at any age is full of risks but at 86 it must be even more frightening. Hoping for a good outcome. Hugs.

    • joanelle says:

      Wow, at 86, your mom shouldn’t have to deal with that Enh – you’re both in my thoughts – hugs

    • Fannie says:

      Hoping for the best with your Mom and her up coming hysterectomy. It’s tough at that age, hang in there.

  3. Sweet Sue says:

    I’m so sorry to hear about your mom’s diagnosis, Mink, and hope that she will have a successful treatment and a full recovery.
    2016 can fuck right off.

  4. Riverbird says:

    I’m so sorry about your mother. Also sorry she has to wait until the 12th to see a specialist.

  9. teele says:

    I am sorry to hear about your mother’s illness, and will keep you both in my thoughts.

  10. janicen says:

    Some good news in politics, Nancy Pelosi won the fight for Dem leadership. So much for the Bernie bro insurgency. She crushed the dude, 2 to 1.

  11. bostonboomer says:

    I’m so sorry about your mom, JJ. Your family has been through so much. It’s just not fair. Love you.

  12. bostonboomer says:

    The cartoons are all great, but my favorite is the one with the cuckoo coming out of #tRump’s head.

    • joanelle says:

      Gee, BB, didn’t you know that’s where they live and breed?

      JJ, that really s__ks – can you feel my hug? Hold tight, know we are all aligned good thoughts with you and your family.

  13. Pat Johnson says:

    Love you, JJ. As you can tell your “cyber buddies” are here for you.

  14. NW Luna says:

    JJ, gentle hugs for you.

  15. Fannie says:

    Oh no JJ……..I hope for a speedy recovery for your Mom, and know you will be there every step of the way with her doctors! Don’t let it take a toll on you, we are with you in spirit and love.

  16. Fannie says:

    Good news, Roy Cooper is the governor of North Carolina.

  17. Minkoff Minx says:

    Thank you all for your thoughts and words. I haven’t been online much. I don’t think I will be until we have a better understanding of what is going on. Love you all so much.

    • Beata says:

      I will be keeping your mother and your entire family in my thoughts, JJ. The specialist will certainly be able to give you more information. After seeing the specialist, get an additional opinion if necessary. Go to a major hospital for it.

      I don’t know the details surrounding your mother’s diagnosis but false positive results are quite possible when testing for ovarian cancer. The common symptoms can be the caused by a variety of other physical problems.

      I had a diagnosis of ovarian cancer in 2008. After having transvaginal ultrasounds, the CA-125 test and a biopsy, the results of the tests were “inconclusive”. But “just in case”, a total hysterectomy was advised along with other treatment. I refused, but here I am, still alive.

      There is always hope. xoxo

      • NW Luna says:

        Even in 2008 you were advised to have a total hystx for inconclusive results? Horrible. And somehow I doubt total removal would have been advised for a man with “inconclusive” testicular cancer findings.
