That could easily mean the exact opposite of what it's supposed to mean.

"Civil rights for same-sex couples leads to tyranny!"
Mockery of ideas you don't comprehend or understand is the surest mark of unintelligence.

Even the worst union is better than the best Walmart.

Better phrasing would be, "Political Tyranny leads to Civil Rights for Same Sex couples!"


Either way, it still doesn't make sense.

I think it meant that countries that were very authoritarian eventually gave equality to citizens, but a country that was supposed to be founded on liberty hasn't caught up.
I'd be more sympathetic if people here didn't act like they knew what they were saying when they were saying something very much wrong.

Right.  The point is that we should be doing at least as well, if not better, than the former dictatorships.

Unfortunately, those aspects are often the reasons why he has so many fans.

I think this might have been posted in the thread on the old board but even if that's the case it's good enought to be posted again.

The message is good enough, but I always found Doonesbury a little too heavy-handed for my tastes. Not to mention it strains my suspension of disbelief; it looks "realistic" and yet, if that doctor said that shit IRL, he'd be out on his ass in days.

I don't know why that one bothers me and not any other political cartoon. *shrug*

I actually like it for that. It is unashamed to be liberal and makes its point in a blunt, unambiguous fashion.

Or they say we're misinterpreting his message. I linked that cartoon to a family member I'm pretty sure whacks off to Paul and this was his tweet back.

thats not entirely true, a great misrepresentation
Matthew 22:39 "And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself." God's own "don't be a dick" rule.

Lithp and Vene really need to have some kind of confusing sexual encounter where Vene spends the entire session lovingly insulting Lithp's technique, then cums on his face, ruffles his hair, says, "You're all right, kid!", and then punches him in the nuts.
