Day-by-Day

Folks will notice that I have a link to Chris Muir's "Day-by-Day" cartoon over on the left -- it was one of the first group of links I bribed a nephew into adding.

Today's cartoon is an example of why I linked to him.

I have no idea why that cartoon made me blow a mug of Assam Estates tea through my sinuses, but I'm thinking that Mr. Muir might be owing me a new keyboard.

Go forth. Enjoy.

At least it was good tea.

I owe your nephew one.

Unfortunately while "we" get it, the real people who need to never will. I work in a VA Hospital, and have seen several of the kids come back through. Some have problems adjusting but the most silently continue to silently soldier on.It breaks the heart to see they disconnect between them and the political types and the moonbats.

My opinion... Chris Muir tells it like it is. Thing is, humor shows up in a lot of places you wouldn't expect it to be. And the more things change, the more they stay the same.

I always recall what my Granddaddy and several of my friends said about WW2... "I'd rather have fought 'em over there than to have to fight 'em here." Same goes for the radical islamists we're seeing now.

I had a good belly laugh, too! Sent it to a few friends. Hope they enjoy & meditate.

Thing is, Westerners seldom realize how fragile true freedom is. They have yet to learn the lessons of Heraclios and his successors in the Roman Empire of the East. Spartans fighting off the Persians will go completely over most movie-goers' heads.

Perhaps one day, before it's too late...

History cannot be taught in class. History must be learned in life.

I saw 300 this weekend and it hit me hard - same struggle, really. It was a hard movie for the mom of a man in the sandbox to watch.

"With your shield or on it," is still the word, though. I wouldn't want him home at the price of his honor. I think that's the difference between me and the 'moonbat moms'. I was willing to make the sacrific myself, so am/was willing for my son and husband to put themselves on the line as well.

Semper Fi.

Now I see why mankind never learns from history! I never thought of it that way before... now I learnt something today.

I've been a fan since I first discovered "Day by Day" a few years ago, to the point where every once in a while I go back to day one and read it all through again. Well done Chris, keep it up, you're still making "Doonesbury" look "sooo twentieth century".
