McCoy is no Schulz
The comic got me discombobulated. Where do I go to get recombobulated?
And just what is “combobulation,” anyway?
It’s not???? Marxist pig!
How? Withhold num-nums.
When? The next time he is horny.
It is precisely because no two women are alike that drives men to act as if they are. Either that, or ignore them completely … which drives the women nuts.
If there were no comments, it might make some people think the strip was not interesting or popular, even if the strip is actually quite brilliant.
If you want an example, check out The Other End by Neil Kohney. Brilliant strip, small following, at most 3 comments, most often none.
Proof that you don’t have to think alike to love each other. And Matalin must really love Carville, because that dude is annoying as hell.
In any competitive system you will find those who kowtow to players who have perpetual competitive advantage (the rich, as well as those who are extremely well qualified for the competition), who have disdain for those who are non-competitive (the chronically disadvantaged), and who fear/hate those who are perceived to be in direct competition – particularly those with whom one has little in common.
When they see people who are markedly different from them securing desirable positions, they tend to feel that the system is malfunctioning, since it’s not them, themselves, securing those positions.
The fear/hate white nationalists express towards “outsiders” who get great jobs in the U.S. is a result of the fact that those bigots overlook the fact that there are not enough skilled U.S. citizens to fill the need, so businesses have to bring in talent. It is easier to complain about the system than it is to strive to be competitive – this is maybe the ultimate legacy of the unionist movement in the United States … qualifications be damned, the guy who pays his dues for the longest time should get the job, and each guy’s job needs to be protected, even if the guy is incompetent.
Property as an artificial construct. Who’d’a thunk Bucky was a Marxist?
