    Hoo, boy, the anti-environment righties are not going to like this one little bit.

    So, you’re saying that when humans move into wilderness we do the same to their habitat?

    I don’t know how far out Rueben writes these weekly strips, but I don’t think environmentalism is the top story this week. I guess he’s going to keep putting his head in the sand (or snow where he’s at). HELLO, Christmas day bomb attempt by religious nut jobs! C’mon atheist lefty, show me you’ve got a pair! I’ll give you another pass but I expect something about terrorists by next week Rueben. C’mon, it’s a leftist government they are attacking now!

    I’m pretty sure this is a rerun. I recall reading it a couple of years ago.

    Unfortunately, he doesn’t include a date with the copyright (which kind of negates the point), so it’s hard to say.

    Uh, Harley, I think you misread the cartoon by 180 degrees.

    Underlying this cartoon is the typical enviro-mental assumption that humans do not deserve to live. But the Greenies and their Leftist ancestors have always thought that.

    (This might make me seem like one of them thar “anti-environment righties” to Anthony, but I suspect that Verbusen is both a righty and anti-atheist, so s/he’d not want to associate with a dedicated atheist like me. Debate amongst yourselves.)

    It is a reasonable turn about, and fair play.

    There are atheist groups and meetings, Jtpozenel, but they’re often not very successful, simply because unlike church-goers, atheists don’t need a weekly recharge to keep their beliefs alive.

    Ted Rall did a strip a while back which, among other things, compared people who don’t believe in God (or gods) to people who don’t like golf. Why would they need meetings? Why do we even need a word to describe them? (Or in this case, “us”, because I believe in no gods either.)

    If atheists get together and all they have in common is that they don’t believe in God (or gods), the meeting breaks up pretty soon, like a group which gathers around a television weekly to Not Watch Golf.

    Thanks for the telling glimpses of mass psychosis.

    Bolling is a genius. This cartoon perfectly describes in a few words why people need to be restricted to clearly defined zones.

    Some of the comments on this comic also clearly show why the herd needs to be thinned.
