    This is nonsense. The counter Earth never got smacked by an asteroid; some lizards run the joint. They even visit us in latex human suits like Ted Cruz and infect with halfwit ideas to keep us down and away from them.

    Hits the nail on the head.

    Hits the nail on the head six times in succession.

    Except for the individual actions leading to likely death (i.e car crashes, and disease), C. E. USA doesn’t look as backward as the “real” thing.

    I’m all about freedom! MY freedom! Yours – not so much. So get infected by my COVID because putting a mask on hurts my feelings and makes me fill my diaper!

    Ah, a made up world of total denial. A lot like much of current America and the rest of the 1st world. Denial of reality and history that excuses those who deny it to simply go ahead and repeat the mistakes, and then to support leaders who say things like “I don’t take responsibility at all.” Sounds pretty sweet but that’s exactly the way Hitler and Goebbels sold the Nazi Big Lie to Germany

    It’s the way you get a world filled with the likes of McConnell, Boebert, Sinema, Zuckerberg, Cruz, Manchin, Taylor Greene, the Teflon president, and so many others who will deny/have denied there is anything wrong and if there is, why then it’s certainly not their fault no matter what they actually said, did, and voted for/against in the past to make it happen. No accountability. No concern for others. No empathy. No responsibility.

    The worst world of the first world.

    America doesn’t lack for intelligence — but are wholly wanting in common-sense.

    MY only question is why hasn’t Ruben won one of those Pulitzer thingies?

    The only way the horse de-wormer story could be better is if the drug had to be administered anally.

    I wanted to start writing a blog, “On My Planet…” I think Ruben is beating me to it.

    got to thinking (hate when that happens so early in the morning….), in panel 3, one person actually points out that they are gay, and another says “dagnabbit” as if he’s disappointed. In our reality, if someone has to look it up, they’re probably “agin” it and it is or will become a law. Can’t have anyone being offended.

    And in the 4th Panel, that certainly is a difference from OUR planet where the Cons will LOVE a child from conception until the moment of birth, and then totally ignore them from birth until they turn 18, and they are old enough to be conscripted into becoming cannon fodder in ANOTHER Corporate-Sponsored War…then they love them again.

    Ruben has accurately depicted the monstrous socialist hell that would obtain, would the Democrats pass their evil agenda.

    Fortunately, there’s no danger of that.

    Is Counter-Earth flat, too?

    Of course there’s no second Earth. Clearly, Counter-Earth must be in another dimension.

    Actually there was a short-lived comic strip mid-50’s, “Twin Earths”. No political commentary. Just some useless trivia…

    So Ruben is in favor of all those other laws too? Because that’s inadvertently what he implied.
