La vengeance se mange très-bien froide

From the Department of No Good Deed Goes Unpunished:

After President Obama declared much of the South a disaster zone after tornadoes killed close to 300 people, Texas Gov. Good Hair Perry stamped his foot, demanded federal assistance for parts of Texas fighting wildfires and wailed, “Why are you taking care of Alabama? Why are you taking care of other states and for some reason or another, the letter didn’t get lost in the mail.”

Guess it’s not just the big guy in the sky who’s ignoring little Ricky.

This shows a shocking dependence on big government.

Good thing the GOP attached that secession amendment to the budget bill.

Let thy God and private charity take care of it.

what a sponge. complaining about folks jumping in front of him in the sponge line. what happened to the rugged individualists proving that every man is indeed an island?

@redmanlaw: i just saw your post about sgt fury and the howling commandos. glad to see they survived the big one. where do you come by all this knowledge? how can i get caught up and follow along? i’ll bet my mom saved all my comic books from back in the day. can i sell them for enough money to buy food and gasoline?

@redmanlaw: Right. And not Blue State tax dollars.

@jwmcsame: I read a shitload of comics when I was a kid, going back to when they were 12 cents each in the early to mid-70s. Sgt. Fury, Sgt. Rock, Captain America, Captain Marvel, Marv-ell, the Skrulls, Legion of Super Heroes, the DC Universe, the Marvel Universe, Richie Rich, Jonah Hex, everything. (We didn’t have a TV back then). Every once in a while my brothers and I would load up an armload and go see other guys at our village who read comics and do some trading.

Even after I quit buying them when they got so expensive, I kept up with comics in the news. Mrs. RML’s cousin turned me on to Wizard magazine so I could keep track of what was going on. I read it faithfully for more than 10 years until its demise late last year. But, best of all, the Santa Fe public library buys “graphic novels” that are basically several issues of a story line under one cover, so I got to read the Death of Captain America, the DC Kingdom Come JLA series, All Star Superman, the Dark Knight books and a ton of others for free. It’s what I get when I don’t feel like reading anything else. When I saw the second and third X-Men movies (for which a high school friend’s sister did the costumes) I was all “Whoa – the Dark Phoenix story!”.

@redmanlaw: My first experience with budgeting was when comics went up to 15 cents.

@redmanlaw: i hear you. i read justice league of america also. and the oldest comic i have is batman for 12 cents. most others, 15 cents to a quarter. i’ll bet comics are more than a buck now.

on another note i just read this about why gas prices are so high. it is what i’ve been yelling into deaf ears since 2004. bernie sanders is the man. read his letter. i can’t wait to buy an electric car (other than the overpriced volt) and drive by the gas pumps yelling “suckers” at the top of my lungs at all the SUVs there filling up.

@SanFranLefty: Hey yourself. I’ve been lurk mode while I deal with some basically good but demanding stuff. I hope to resurface more regularly in the not-to-distant future.

@Walking Still: Well, when you resurface, let’s do something in June or July. I’m changing jobs and Mr SFL and I are getting lost in the South Pacific for a few weeks this month.
