    Yup, and here’s one more post to keep the very malevolent, demented and/or ignorant troll(s) who haunt this comic (even though we’re all “commies” here) from appearing at the top of the comments.

    And the Faux Newsies and many of their ilk enjoy the tons of money they also get from spreading the lies and distortions which make the unwary “base” angry at the wrong people.

    “The whole country was the victim when he won.” This.

    It doesn’t matter what the trolls say. He knowingly covered up something that could (would) have cost him the 2016 election.

    No appeal on a legal technicality can erase the scope of facts presented to the jury. The evidence was/is obvious and overwhelming.

    That’s so clear to anyone paying attention, even without Michael Cohen – but the jury was there near him when he was on the stand, including under withering cross examination, and got the chance to judge his personal credibility – at least as to his testimony – one of the basic purposes and benefits of having a jury present to see and hear the witnesses at a criminal trial in our legal system.

    The convicted felon here tried to hide an extra-marital affair from the public and his wife using hush money and tried to disguise the act and payments in official records. Why can’t the cultists just wake up and see they’ve been had by that man?

    But, but, but, but – nothing and no one else.

    That the feds can’t/couldn’t/won’t/wouldn’t prosecute him immediately for the same crime is an example of what is wrong in our national popular/financial/legal culture and the far too common misunderstanding of how equal application of the rule of law (including, duh, enforcing honesty in official economic filings) is basic and essential to democracy.

    Simple solution: stop watching (so much) television. Try a book. No ads in most of them. Just avoid books by or about people you see on your TV.

    “Back before the internet…” You are so right.

    For anyone alive today, there were always those radio nutjobs on some channel out there somewhere in our big continent, from the 1930s right up to and beyond the great gasbag, Limbaugh.

    And the internet began to spew things in a much more concentrated and public way as its everyday presence grew throughout the ’90s and aftrer.

    But humanity did not accurately anticipate or prepare for, and is still drowning in, the tsunami of collective nutjobbery that has poured out with the introduction of the “smart” phone 15-20 years ago.

    Twitter was always really just a phone thing and in 2015-16, the first time it was widespread enough to do it (together with some other established social media giants), it elected a president who campaigned through his phone.

    In my (probably faulty) recollection, Wang was a (or possibly the) leader in early smaller office systems (at least in the US), especially word processing (character based interface!), for at least a year or two in the later 1970s (not sure of the exact years, or even if it’s the same Wang company, but no doubt a person could look that all up online if they wanted to).

    While I think Wang was very innovative when it started, its new, smaller, but still centralized (and still not cheap) office system got totally overrun by the extremely rapid growth during that same time of increasingly cheaper microprocessors and the personal (desktop) computer model. Huge important software growth followed the hardware, including perhaps the most important new thing, the graphic interface (see XeroxPARC), with easier, individually managed, input/output, including networking. Systems like Wang’s (at the time) were left in the dust.

    Those were exciting times for young computer nerds, when there was plenty of room for customization of everything and “hacker” had a mostly positive meaning.

    Ask your AI to generate the sound for you.

    Now do one for the other guy. To be even remotely accurate and lifelike, what comes out of the phone will have to be mostly incoherent (if dangerous) self-centered drivel.

    Brilliant mouth art but, IMHO, there definitely should have been layers separated by fillings in that cake. C’mon, Nancy!
