Homeland Security Funnies!

The Do-Something Congress
I can't remember where I got this. I just cleaned it up a little.

Yeah, it seems like conservatives generally have a difficulty grasping the idea that even the presumably guilty have due process rights, the right to trial of their peers, etc.

My favorite discussion is a discussion with a conservative about the death penalty. When you demonstrate with statistics that it has zero deterrent value (showing, for instance, that there's actually higher murder rates in states that frequently use the death penalty), they respond that it would work "if they just executed people right away, without all those appeals and shit..." And of course it turns out that just in Illinois, we had dozens of people mistakenly on death row, even after trials and the long and tortorous appeals process.

Well, gee, just don't do anything unpatriotic and then you don't have to worry about the government accusing you of being unpatriotic.

"We should have done our thinking and praying before this happened."

Looks like it is out of Treasure Chest' anti-communism comic.

I had a dream one time that the government grabbed up all the malcontents and put us all together somewhere, thinking we would be punished, but instead formed a great country. In the end of my dream, people were fleeing from Jebusland to our little jail to be free again.

Weird, non?

Johnny Yen: Yes! Keith Olbermann always talks about two pundits sitting down as discussing the concept of gravity. One guy believes in it, the other doesn't. Fair and balanced! You decide!

Jon the Intergalactic Gladiator: As you are from another planet, you don't realize the doublethink that goes on in this place!

Sleestak: Boy, you sure know your stuff! I found this in seconds with your keywords. I've even posted the comic that you have quoted before, "We should have done our thinking and praying before this happened."

The original comic looked like this. I just straightened it, and greyed-out the text that had been added so that it did not stand out stark black. I wish I knew what that font they used for the added text was!

Tengrain: My initial reaction to your dream was, "Australia!" That is an interesting dream. It sounds like it would make a good story or comic book!

Except I'm not from another planet, I just work on another planet. ;-)
