Coup Or Not A Coup

If it looks like a coup, and quacks like a coup, there's a good chance it may be a coup.  All that optimistic Arab Spring democracy stuff is getting more and more complicated with each passing day.

Prop 8 Personal Injury


The Supreme Court ruled that the sponsors of Prop. 8 didn't have standing because they hadn't been harmed by same sex marriage in California.  I think some of those sponsors and their supporters would beg to differ.  Turns out it's very difficult to prove that you've been harmed by someone else getting married.  Go figure.
 
I've been doing cartoons about same sex marriage and gay rights since way back in the early nineties while I was living in Colorado in the days of Amendment 2.  I'm looking forward to cartoons about civil rights for same sex couples being a thing of the past.  I can't remember ever doing a cartoon that dealt with battles around miscegenation, except in relation to current battles over same sex marriage.
 
I guess I just couldn't resist kicking some of these guys while they're down.  Not to mention the fact I couldn't resist pointing out the silliness of an unmarried Catholic Cardinal heading the "Subcommittee for the Promotion and Defense of Marriage" warning of the evils of gay marriage, all while the news broke that he stashed Church money (in a cemetery fund, no less!) so sex abuse victims wouldn't have access to the cash.  Who comes up with this stuff?!

Wiretapping Saves



I hope you watch the cartoon before reading this blog post, or at least take this as your spoiler alert.  While awaiting the loads of important Supreme Court rulings this week (apparently, even Supreme Court justices wait until the very last possible second to do something, just like most of us), I decided to take one more look at the Snowden story.
 
This cartoon is an extension of an earlier blog post where I thought about my own metadata and how bad it could look to an NSA snooping program.  Rather than focus on myself, howabout we look at our pal Jesus' metadata?  Doesn't look good for the ol' Son of God.  He definitely hung with the wrong crowd and did some suspicious communicating.
 
Another worry with the NSA data-vacuuming programs is that there will be so much data, it will distract from real threats discovered the old-fashioned way.  Like, say, the Russians telling you to watch out for these guys!
 
Enjoy the cartoon, and be sure to comment, share and let me know what you think.
