People in places like Syria, Yemen, Myanmar, Belarus, North Korea, Russia, China know what the term “government oppression” actually means.
Overweight Americans bellowing about wearing a mask and being vaccinated with the most effective vaccines in the world when others around the world cannot get either are nothing but an international embarrassment.
i’d like to get the vaccine to prevent contagion from morons like varvel…
let’s ban opspecial!
Too bad there wasn’t a vaccine to make you smarter. If this guy was real, chances are good he’d be an addition to SorryAntivaxxer.com
Well buddy that is going to be a tough one. There is no vaccine against oppressing governments or idiots in charge like Biden.
Great ‘toon! The Libs love their mandates. Let’s go, Brandon!
You have every right to die, but not to take others with you.
Define oppression. Is it when I do it, or when YOU do it?
That would mean allowing every American the right to vote. Something Republicans and the right-wing absolutely hate.
Oppressive government as in the fascism Trump embodies or the socialism embodied in Scandinavian countries? Not a hard choice.
Pro Covid DA in CA, an up and comer Republican just dropped dead of Covid. She was against Govt. Oppression, of course. I feel so owned:-)
Well.. it’s a start. Only a short while ago the request would have been for a gun
You can’t have it both ways being anti-vax and anti-choice and claim government oppression.
Easy-peasy: Vote Democratic!
Somehow I don’t think Varvie will get the point.
It’ the 6th of January and Gary suddenly developed amnesia.
Become a Liberal. Our Liberal Founders knew the ’cure for oppressive government. Independence. The conservatives back then opposed our independence.
It’s called voting Democrat.
Depending on what side of the fence you sit, this toon could be taken either way. When I first read the blurb I thought the guy was talking about government voter suppression, not vaccine mandates.
As pointed out above the vaccine is called “Voting”. However it requires: Free and fair elections, that you have faith in the outcome of the vote, that you do not commit insurrection because your feelings are hurt, that people in power are held accountable for their actions- even if that sometimes hurts “your side”.
Short version- the price is higher than you are willing to pay Gary.
Feeling oppressed? Get a medical alert card that tells the world that in case of Covid they should leave you at home so your family can lay hands on you, and feed you horse dewormer. If that doesn’t work they can inter you in the backyard
YES i would like a Government Funded Vaccine
Staffed by Government Funded professionals
to PROTECT me from Government overreach
…..Go ahead and Bill My Medicare.
Varvel will be calling seat belts and stop signs “Government Oppression” next. Along with masks and vaccines they protect people’s lives!
We have that vaccine. It’s called “voting” or “the franchise”. It’s very important that all eligible citizens make use of it, and it doesn’t work at all well when you withhold it from people who want to get it.
Then don’t vote Republican.
No one is oppressing you. Don’t take the vaccine; it’s your choice. But others may choose to exclude you from school, work, entertainment venues, restaurants, bars, other businesses….
Gary, this is what you are asking for:
If you don’t want government oppression then stop spreading misinformation.
OMG do they really believe this is Govt. oppression???!!! I don’t think anybody has “dissappeared” because they refused the vaccine. Stop acting like children scared of a needle.
Using the mandate is like a leader who uses a whip from behind to get them in line. Better: offer some thing like a what is offered by some places. A credit in the store when you get the flu shot. I know if the government offered it Republicans (and some others) would be screaming about it growing the debt.
The needle tears a hole The old familiar sting Try to kill it all away
Lookit, get the d@mn vaccine, and get this crap behind us.
Your wrongheaded political tantrum prolongs the agony for all of us.
We HAVE a vaccine for government oppression. It’s the ballot box. And of course, that requires the use of that potato between your ears, assuming you can get it started and pointed at reality, something that seems ever less likely for the folks on the extreme right such as Varvel.
When I read this I had forgotten I was jumping to Varvel. I thought it was sarcasm and pretty funny… but he’s serious??? Poor baby, “government oppression”. /s
If you want protection from government oppression, vote Democrat.

And the woman behind the counter says, “As soon as you show me proof of your funeral arrangements”.
Varvel, the only way to eradicate Covid is for everyone in the world to get vaccinated, keep getting boosters when required for several decades.
Small Pox and Polio did not go away over night. Vaccines don’t always keep you from getting the disease, but unless you are very old and or with other health issues, it will keep you from getting seriously ill. Eventually, with people around the world following a vaccine regament we could eliminate Covid19, but it won’t happen overnight.
Small Pox had been around for well over 3,000 years. No one ever developed herd immunity. Eventually, vaccines eradicated it. In the meantime vaccines ensured fewer people got seriously ill or had serious complications like blindness.
Gary, as usual, you are making it more complicated than it needs to be. If you get the vaccine, it won’t mean you won’t get Covid. But it will protect you from falling seriously ill as a result. I for one am done with freaking out over the anti vaxxers and/or hesitants because that’s what gives them power. They will either get their jabs or fall seriously ill and the rest of us who are doing the right thing will get ourselves to the other side with or without them.
If only there were one….
