Oh for goodness sake, Bones, there are a crud load of rich white men around. Me? I'm voting for my current president and pray that the idiots in the U.S. give him a Democratic House and Senate so he can get some work accomplished. Methinks that he will go down in history as one of the best presidents we've ever had. Yeah, I'm a PROGRESSIVE LIBERAL and damned proud of it.
And I am sure that Beverly voted for Carter and thinks he was one of the greatest the US has ever had, and that the work he has done since leaving the white house is wonderful too.
Good for you Beverly. Obama has done enough harm already. And how wonderfully he supports our allies, like the UK, Israel and Poland. Those of us that pay taxes can't make enough money any longer to support all you and Obama's corrupt friends. Obama has far surpassed Carter as the worst president. He will not win another term.
Why in the world would anyone shout and be proud of being a progressive liberal? I guess I shouldn't talk after all I used to be one. Of course that all changed when that jerk Carter (the peanut farmer) was elected.
Sadly, there are still a lot of Jews who will not vote for a Republican (to paraphrase Psalm 137, "or my right hand will wither"). I recommend Norman Podhoretz's book "Why are Jews Libersls?" Long after we should have moved on from our enslavement to the Democratic Party, many of us still think of them as the party of the "little guy" and the Republicans as the "rich guys." This in spite of the fact that the well-meaning policies the Democrats proposed are not working as well as they were before, but the Democrats scare us with the threat of rolling back hard-earned gains. No chance of that; most people know that things are for the better from the 1960's, yet this irresponsible rhetoric from the Democrats still occurs 50 years later.The fact is that anyone who runs for president is subject to the same scrutiny regardless of his or her race, religion, or gender. To believe otherwise is to infantilize the minorities and women who have achieved what they have. The so-called "progressive liberals" need to realize this. They are doing those they support no favors by claiming that America is stuck in a past that conservatives and everyone else acknowledges is history. (No, society is not perfect, but it never will be, so we need to do the best we can.)This is one reason I try to stay independent. I don't want to be tied to one party or the other. Unfortunately, I may be able to say that the Democrats left me, which is why I may be voting Republican more. In general, though, we should be independent and have both parties earn our votes.
Wasn't it Fidel Castro (you know, that deep deep commie from Cuba) who said that Obama is a fool for thinking that Socialism and Communism are good? I believe that he also said that if you aren't a sociallist when you're young, you have no heart,,, if you stay a sociallist when you get older,,, you have no sence,,,,
The was Churchill, I fhink, Michael. Considering how heartless socialists seem to be, adopting policies that have harmful effects and do the reverse of what the socialists claim to want, I think that part about having no heart if you're not a socialist at 20 is a crock.As for Beverly, just another rube. It was clear from the get-go that 1) Obama would be out of his depth as President, and 2) that the policies he and his buddies proposed were stupidly bad. The only good thing one can say about Obama is that in many respects, and contrary to his irresponsible campaign promises, he has continued the wartime policies of the Bush Administration. Other than that it has been one long string of failures, made more egregiouos by the fact that the failures were entirely predictable.
I don't like either candidate! I didn't like either candidate in 2008, but if I must be made a fool of again, let it be by a different person than the one whom currently is doing so. I didn't vote for Obama or McClain, I wrote in my own choice, the one we really need here in America - Jesus Christ! I'm neither Democrat or Republican. I'm an independent thinker and voter.Ms Anderson

I started Dry Bones in Jan 1973. Since then I've been known as "Bones" to friends and colleagues. This is the first time I've ever shared the "stories behind the cartoons." Enjoy.
