Silly thing ran just as well in both directions.
If they told you that it ran just as well in both directions, does that mean that you were fore warned?

A joke thread, it's just that pretty much all politics these days is a joke.

And the *real* problem is that so many undereducated and/or ignorant people so completely misunderstand the notion of "freedom" as it applies in a modern democratic State.

The problem with "American freedom" is that it means different things to different people.

In the case of this cartoon, the 'freedom claimer' (clearly rolling off the protests against lockdowns in some places in US by some people) sought to maintain their 'individual freedom' to do and go wherever they chose, and in doing so, transmitted corona virus and thereby infected 'all those others'.

This is irony,a well known form of humorous expression.

The humour is in the blatant self-interest (and concomittant communal disregard) in which the irony lies. The humour rests in the fact that the 'freedom claimer' also died.

As the old adage states so well: be careful what you wish for, it might not be what you need.

Or - and perhaps more to the point - might not be what you thought you were demanding or wishing for.

The only difference is in the number of people getting screwed.

Methinks you believe that anyone that doesn't agree with you is a Socialist, wherein I would suggest that the bulk of the membership here are just social.

Interesting.... but you define yourself as ďblue-blood AmericanĒ, that makes you some sort of elitist? Funny.
