For help on how to follow a comic title,
Cute cartoon, Lisa. Fascinating how the speech censors pile up here. They don’t seem to realize that it is their bullying that got President Trump elected in the first place.
Trump must love the cancel culture. They do more for keeping him in the public eye and mind than he could hope to do by himself. It would be a hilarious twist if they were his paid shills.
Thank you for that polite clarification.
We speak and associate with pretty much everybody, regardless of race or creed, so we know numerous Democrats who are opposed to abortion. Yes, they are often religious people, but many humans are!
There are Democrats a few blocks from here who have made a “Let’s go….” sign and placed it prominently in their front yard! That one shocked us a bit. Yes, they are religious Democrats, but then, there are many religious people, regardless of party. It’s human.
We also know Republicans who favor abortion.
So, we try to ignore the labels and get at what people think and why. The people around us who think as they do because their party tells them what to think do not make for much discussion, and we are not really into name-calling, so we leave them in peace, and all get along.
People are what they are. Stigmatizing and de-humanizing them for disagreeing may be very human, but it is not very productive of peaceful cooperation.
Surely you have noticed that states with laws restricting abortion often include the caveats except in cases of rape or danger to the mother’s life.
I am not aware of a federal law restricting abortion. Those tend to be state laws.
The egg cell is the big one, provided by the mother. The sperm cell is the little add-on that makes the resultant egg diploid. Cell machinery like mitochondria come from Mom.
BTW, the ‘Moral Majority’ does not usually include agnostics like us. Actually, being an agnostic means you have to consider and choose your values yourself, rather than simply having them imposed upon you by story-tellers of various persuasions.
How did you arrive at your polite ‘GQP’ treatment of everyone who is not in lock-step with your group?(Humans form groups…)It seems mostly calculated to make enemies, and ensure people who do not already agree with you never will.
Why would you say “all tax cuts for the rich (AND the resultant massive deficit increase) are totally justified”?
I certainly didn’t.
I tried to enlighten you to the fact that just because a wealthy person says they support the poor at a wine-and-cheese party with their friends and some press agents, it doesn’t mean they will give any significant part of their wealth to the poor.
You seem to have missed that Democrats have at least as many people who talk Caring while doing Self as any other party. They are all humans.
Your devotion to your masters is laudable, if perhaps a bit misplaced.
BTW, it is people like YOU who got Trump elected. It was a backlash to your sneering, snotty remarks. The sad part is, you think verbal abuse makes you look clever, and your masters encourage you.
How will you feel if you get him elected again?
Go in peace.
Let’s see- the arguments we are seeing include rape, foolishness, change of heart, and the stony unwillingness of liberal voters to support unwanted children.
I am especially amused by the argument “Do Republican/conservatives comprehend that by banning abortion minorities and people of color would soon become majorities and outnumber them?” It shows clearly how the elitist liberals really think.
We hear constantly here about “rich Republicans”. It is refreshing to hear “rich Democrats” expressing their true reason for encouraging abortions. Usually, I only hear such honesty in private conversations.
No, we do not support abortion-on-demand. Yes, we do support abortion to save the life of the mother, or to save a woman who has had someone’s semen forced into her.
BTW, ‘people of color’ will soon be the majority anyway. Will the new ‘white minority’ get preference in the granting of federal contracts, along with the other minorities, like native americans, jews, asians and women? (No, women are not really a minority.)
Maybe we should all just try to get along, and ignore the blaring alarmist divisive posts of the MDM (Money Driven Media).
Peace, Sisters and Brothers.
BTW, feel free to use ‘MDM’ whenever and wherever you like. :)
You mean you haven’t noticed any rich Democrats supporting ways to stay rich and pay less taxes?
How many rich people of any self-declared political persuasion do you know who intentionally give all they have to the poor and go among them preaching love for everyone?
Surely you noticed that almost everyone is OK with terminating a pregnancy forced on a woman by rape.
Killing the unborn and killing the elderly and ailing (euthanasia) are mostly pushed by self-identified liberals these days, but it is worth noting that Adolf Hitler also favored ending a ‘life not worth living’, and went on to add more lives to the list, and proceeded to end them, whether they approved his decision or not. This is sometimes called ‘the slippery slope’, and caring people might guard themselves from sliding down it…
And even though we disagree with you, we support your right to be wrong! :)
Thank you, all veterans, for your service, even if you are ‘white’.
OK, now for the physics/optics lecture:
For eyes to see, the retina must absorb light. If those eyes see in our visible spectrum, then, at a minimum, the retinas must still be visible. You may have noticed this about some otherwise transparent species. The retinas of the eyes are visible.
You could be transparent and still ‘see’, if your vision worked in a range of the electromagnetic spectrum outside the range of human vision.
BTW, to be truly invisible, not only would you have to not absorb any part of the visible spectrum, but you would also need to have the same index of refraction as the medium (like the air around you) in which you were hiding. Otherwise, the interface between you and the air could still result in reflected light, just like light reflected off of water or clear glass, making your presence known.
So, Calvin’s invisibility is ‘all in his head’, and Mom has no trouble seeing him, clothes or no clothes.
And still the comic is delightfully comical! :)
We don’t know if Calvin was naked yesterday, so we don’t know if his clothes were invisible… but one or two of our more-than-ten-kids were known to shuck their clothes when they were little once they got outside on a warm, sunny day.
