Hadn't seen a thread for this.  Thought it would be fun to make one where we can share stuff for a good laugh. 
 
I was going to share one from the New Yorker titled "Ecosa Nostra"   It shows two mobsters, one digging a grave and the other holding two bags with body parts hanging out of it.  The caption reads "Instead of plastic garbage bags, I though we could try these earth-friendly canvas totes."  Unfortunately, the magazine does not allow links to their cartoon bank as they sell reproductions.
 
So here's a good recent one from one of my favorite political cartoonists:

This is from a liberal blog called Bartcop.  He links to a lot of funny cartoons and things.
Updates daily more or less.

If these cartoons could be a bit more "international" like the Al Gore's for instance, people should come more frequently, no? Smile

Castro is sort of the Dick Clark of world leaders.  Interesting, cheeses me off the New Yorker doesn't allow you to link to items in their cartoon base.  They had a cover recently of Ahmadinejad (think I spelled that right) in a toilet stall with some guy in the opposite one trying to play footsies with him. LOL

 This guy puts out stuff daily.  Found him in a liberal monthly humor paper called the Funny Times.  Really good if you're looking for a non-politcal laugh.

I can't find it anywhere, but I saw a great one in the OpEd section of my newspaper not too long ago. It said "Giuliani's clock is always at 9:11" and it showed his face in the middle of the clock with his arms at the respective time.


And on a different note,

Luckovitch is a local hero, political cartoon wise, to a few of us around here.

Sorry about that, I am trying to post more worldly applicable cartoons.

During hurricane Katrina, Bush said the head of the Federal Emergency Management department was doing a hecukva (translate great) job and you probably know how well things turned out for New Orleans.

I don't seem to be able to upload it (please explain if y'all know how to do it from one's "my pictures folder".) So here is my best description:
The facade is a building front with "Mental Health Facilities" written on its' front signage. This is  a Potemkin village visual , with the actual building behind this fake front labeled  " JAIL".
For those of you who have read "

Crazy: A Father's Search Through America's Mental Health Madness", written by Pete Early, you know what this means.

For those who don't , think about it. you don't get elected by proclaiming the number of mentally ill you have helped, but it never hurts to state how many people have been put behind bars during your term.

P.S. It's a picture I got from our Local Moncton Times & Transcript.
P.P.S.  For those who care to know more - I am Bi-Polar II. I am O.K., 'cause I take my meds. My wife's uncle, however, sleeps in a storage facility. He is off his meds, does not know better. He thinks the world is out to get him, and thus, has lost his monthly stipend, his truck (his license is suspended, but he doesn't understand why), an apartment he had, that was subsidized, and for the rest of us, his dignity; but he does not know this last part.
So even, in Canada, with its' socialized medicine, we end up with a formerly productive member of society (he used to have his own plumbing company) living in a concrete  cage with his remaining belongings.

P.P.P.S.  with an added please  - whatever your country, region , state or province; please consider the relative cost (hey, why should I not base my plea on the basest of motives - All Hail Mammon), press your government to take care of those who can't take care of themselves. Their rights are important, but their quality of life should trump their usually addled choices. Or better yet, do you really want to wait until one of them breaks down and then breaks into your house (this is not a threat, a possibility only. But basing reactions on Fear mongering has never been proven unproductive; for which I apologize ahead of time).
We're all in this together, eh. We're all in this together , eh.(emphasis)  Even those who don't have it all together.
