It's hard to believe that in 2013 women are still struggling to control their own bodies and reproductive health.

Of course we know that Obama caused the blackout. The Republicans are having a field day with that one. With all the rich people there, couldn't some of them have just snapped their fingers, and come up with some generators?

Good to see you back, T.C. I was wondering if you were sick. Take care!

Woo - Hoo- my best time - 3:03!

So Barack got a gun, shot some CLAY skeet and the NRA are pissed. By the way, let me be the first to announce that the back ground is Kenya, Obama's real home. We some Wackos filters for anyone that gets inside the belt way.

Again - Welcome back TomCat, I hope you found the notes from many that were concerned about you and your health.

Glad you're back Tom!:) OMG! The Obama cartoon reminded me of Blazing Saddles, he's their worst nightmare: A black man with a gun!

Is good to see you back Tom. Yippee! I agree Judy, 40 years later and we are still fighting the same old crap.

Puzzle 4:14 I was sleeping like a log so couldn't catch Patty.

MoveOn Yup, the fight is still going on. There are 3 Conservative MPs in the Canadian House of Commons (I think from the Atlantic region) who recently asked the RCMP to investigate illegal abortions. The Rt disHonourable PM Twit, Stephen Harper, has categorically said he has no intention to open up the abortion debate (although I don't trust him). This anti women crap is contagious!

I think that if the Republican/Teabaggers ever tried to take away a woman's right to vote . . . well there is this little saying from British playwrite William Congreve in 1697 . . . "Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned." When 51% of the population is female, I think that a snowball has a better chance of surviving hell than the Republican/Teabaggers have of surviving women scorned!

Daily Caller I think there is a new form of dementia being added to the medical texts. It is called Ron Paulism and it is a subset of InsaiTea.

MSNBC And Diane O on Care2 tried to tell me that conspiracy theories are a product of the left. This bs of 34 minutes of blackout is just that . . . bull shit! We could look at it this way, it meant that there was 24 minutes of "Jobs, Jobs, Jobs" available. It is about perspective but the Republican/Teabaggers really need to quit distracting and obstructing and get on with their jobs . . . after all, they are being paid by the people.

Cartoon No kidding! What a bunch of lameasses!

Welcome back TC! Just be kind to yourself and ease back in.

Tom, So glad you are feeling better. As usual, love the cartoon, you can see nothing has changed while you were gone, the repubs are still acting like children and can't figure out why they lost.

I have a correction for that cartoon: "for white MEN only." Other than that, it's dead-on.

Glad you're back, TomCat.

I defer to Dianna.
