Cartoon of the Day – Speech


[Steve Kelley – GoComics]

I really don’t have a problem with Obama accepting $400,000 — or any amount of money — for a speech. I have a problem with anyone that would want to pay him $400,000 — or any amount of money — to hear him speak.

Cartoon of the Day – Silent


[Glenn McCoy – GoComics]

“Liberals claim to want to give a hearing to other views, but then are shocked and offended to discover that there are other views.” — William F. Buckley, Jr.

Yes, I’ve shared that quote many times. And will many many more. I mean, you can’t really improve on that, can you?

Wednesday Night Open Thread

I’ve always enjoyed going to the movies. Well, not so much anymore, because it’s expensive. Still, there is something to be said with going out to the movies and watching something really entertaining on a big screen.

I have several hundred movies available for streaming, or ripped from DVD onto a local server, meaning that I don’t need to go out to the movies. I can watch a movie any time I want.

It’s the middle of the week, and it’s Wednesday Night Open Thread time. What’s on your mind? Got a topic to discuss? The floor is wide open.

Cartoon of the Day – Shutdown


[Jerry Holbert – GoComics]

Oh, if only.

Of course, the government won’t really shut down. They’ll keep “essential services” running. Which means that government had services that aren’t essential. Which government shouldn’t be doing anyway.

Tuesday Night Open Thread

I had the chance to babysit for the youngest grandson this weekend. Twice.

One of the things he likes to do is watch Finding Dory. He calls it Fish, probably because he’s 20 months old. “Papa, I wan’ watch Fish.”

So, we got to watch Fish, um, Finding Dory.

It’s Tuesday Night Open Thread! What’s on your mind? What do you want to share? Or get off your chest? Got a joke? Just something to say? Now’s the time.

Monday Night Open Thread

It’s Monday night! Don’t look at that like it’s a bad thing. You see, that Monday at work? It’s over. Behind you. Done. In the past.

Oh, and in less than 96 hours, it’ll be Friday night and the beginning of the weekend.

So, it’s a mix of happy and sad. And that made me think of this:

[The YouTube]

The topic, or topics, discussed tonight are entirely up to you. Tell a joke, make up a lie, share your darkest secret, whatever you like. It’s Monday Night Open Thread.

Cartoon of the Day – Pedestal


[Michael P. Ramirez]

The hypocrisy of the left … well, I was going to say it never ceases to amaze me. But, I’ve seen it so much and for so long that I’m not amazed by the everyday ordinary.

Sunday Night Open Thread

Yes, it’s still an Open Thread. That usually means fun discussions, silly jokes, and a general good time.

Beth Cleaver is on my mind, though. She lost her latest battle with cancer yesterday. Some of you may remember her old blog, “My Vast Right Wing Conspiracy.” Some of you may have followed her when she moved to The Facebook. Of course, some of you may never have followed her at all.

Briefly, and quite insufficiently, she was a loving mother, an Air Force veteran, and a patriot. Each of those is more than many people ever are or were. She was all that and much more.

Yes, it’s Open Thread. And yes, that’s usually happy stuff. So let’s keep it happy. If you knew or followed Beth, and you have some fun or funny stories to share, please do. Try keeping it PG-13, as she had a mouth on her.

If you didn’t, but have a fun story to share about a friend you’ve lost, please do.

And, of course, if you just want to have some other fun, feel free. We could all use a laugh right about now.

So, who wants to start?

Saturday Night Open Thread

Hey, tonight’s the night of the lottery drawing, isn’t it? What’s it up to? Eh, doesn’t matter.

You know, some people don’t play the lottery until it gets up to $200-million or more. I suppose they don’t want to waste their time on a measly $10-million chump change, right?

Still, if you played the lottery, you’ll be watching the drawing to see if you won, right? Good luck with that.

[The YouTube]

Now for the nightly IMAO lottery. It’s Saturday Night Open Thread! Yay! That means it’s totally random what you’ll read here, because other readers, some funnier than you, will type something on to their computer machine and it’ll magically appear here for you to laugh at. Then others will type something, maybe on the same topic, maybe on some other topic, and it’ll be funny, and everyone will laugh. Then you get to type something and maybe they’ll laugh at it. Maybe they’ll laugh at what you wrote. Who knows? Better odds than the lottery.

So, tell a joke, post a link, say what’s on your mind.

Friday Night Open Thread

It’s the weekend! Happy dance!

Of course, weekends means sports. Well, there are some sports that play through the week. I mean, there’s baseball, right? Great sport. My team sucks.

Still, we like sports.

[The YouTube]

It’s Friday Night Open Thread. That means you don’t have to talk about sports. You pick the topic. Or topics. Lots and lots of topics. But you can talk about sports if you want. Or tell a joke. Or share a link. Or anything.

Thursday Night Open Thread

I was going to write something, but I haven’t finished watching all the new episodes of MST3K. Yeah, I had to subscribe to The Netflix to watch them. So, I’m kinda on a schedule.

If you want to watch it, too, just fire up The Netflix, then log on The Twitter and be sure to tell everything that happens. Don’t worry about spoilers; they’ll get over it.

[The YouTube]

Or… you could post a link to something you want to share, tell a joke, comment on something, whatever’s on your mind. It’s Thursday Night Open Thread.

Cartoon of the Day – Unlocked


[Gary Varvel – GoComics]

Don’t misunderstand me. I don’t think a military should go unchecked. It was designed by the Constitution to always be under civilian control. However, I don’t think the military should have unreasonable restrictions upon them. If we aren’t going to let our military fight a war with everything it’s got, we shouldn’t fight the war.

Military force is an extreme measure that should be used in extreme circumstances only. But, if circumstances necessitate its use, it should be used to utterly defeat the enemy. War is hell. It should be hell. As such, we should try everything we can to avoid it. But, if we have to fight a war, we should rain such hell down upon the enemy so that the next potential enemy will do everything they can to avoid a war with us.
