Because the last one has aged off the page, and I can't find it. Here, Brand New for 2018.

Nitram, slightly high on cough syrup: Do you know you're beautiful?
Me: Nope, that's why I have you around to tell me.
Nitram: You -are- beautiful. Anyone tries to tell you otherwise kill them.

Oh, it's been around two whole days and nobody commented yet?

#first! :mrgreen:

Ok, as you can see from my admissions to the political cartoon thread, I'm really not a "yuge" fan of Dumpin' Donald, and if I could have a wish for him, it would be that "liar, liar, pants on fire" would apply to him and his inner crowd of circle jerkers.

We have some political cartoons in Norway as well, but I doubt most of you guys knows about the controversy around Sylvi Listhaug, or are even aware she exists, so I haven't bothered to post cartoons from local politics.

Sorta a cartoon?

I think most of the EU countries have got it kinda right. You can have private capitalism, but keep it in check by regulations, so that it doesn't go wild. Government should be a kind of socialist democracy that takes the worst of inequalities and kinda spread it around the population, allowing for single payer health care, social security and other common goods.

Pure capitalism, aka GOP greed, is not good. Pure socialism doesn't work quite well either. Take the best of both worlds.

Democratic socialism, and the national capitalism as advocated by Edward Bellamy.

Wow, Shadow, that reminded me of the final scenes in the movie Network.
"Beware the Beast, Man, for he is the Devil's pawn. Alone amongst God's primates, he kills for sport, for lust, for greed. Yea, he will murder his brother to possess his brother's land. Let him not breed in great numbers, for he will make a desert of his home and yours. Shun him, drive him back into his jungle lair, for he is the harbinger of Death.."
