Political Cartoons
I am rather a big fan of Clay Bennett and his cartoons. Here are a couple of recent ones I really enjoy.

That first one is really, really funny and sadly true!Weeping

The second is very good.

He draws for the Chattanooga Times Free Press, so you can imagine that he gets a lot of flak from the conservative right for daring to be liberal-minded in a red state. His detractors are always lying in wait for his next cartoon, and have their prepackaged responses ready. This makes it painfully obvious that not only do they not understand words, but they fail to understand pictures.

This was a really obvious one

People were commenting as if Clay was implying that he was speaking out against censorship of his own cartoons. Not realizing that the picture was in support of the #JeSuisCharlie tags going around after the Paris attacks.

The stupidity of the right would be amusing if they didn't vote in such large numbers.

RE: Political Cartoons
I can't think of any political cartoons, or cartoonists that I'd count as being "really good." They're either too on the nose or not interesting.

Dumb jokes on the other hand?

Soulless mutants of muscle and intent. There are billions of us; hardy, smart and dangerous. Shaped by millions of years of death. We are the definitive alpha predator. We build monsters of fire and stone. We bottled the sun. We nailed our god to a stick.

In man's struggle against the world, bet on the man.

Religion is an invasive species upon the tree of liberty in our secular nation. It is trying to strangle our freedoms under its own guise of religious "freedom" where they want the freedom to persecute.

That's what I see anyways.

RE: Political Cartoons
I like the second one about trickle down economics. I find myself disillusioned with American & Canadian politics. Socially I would like to see immigration restricted, multiculturalism and hate speech laws abolished (hate speech only applies to Canada, thankfully America doesn't have that), but economically I support wealth redistribution.

I don't wanna see immigration restricted. It's seems immigrants like to have lots of kids. I'm gonna need those kids to pay for my Canada Pension.
As for multiculturalism, meh. I don't give a shit.
I'm with you on the hate speech. It seems silly to jail people for words.
Can't say much about the redistribution of wealth. Gotta get my Canada Pension.. Smile
You might notice my ideals mostly have to do with what I can get..

Even after Rob Ford? That guy made me a believer.
