This is America by Conservatoons This is America by Conservatoons
Obviously inspired by the "300" and absolutely how I feel about BO and his destructive vision.

I like the idea here but not he execution so much. I think it would be better if done in a comic book style.

I'm assuming you saw this then: www.youtube.com/watch?v=tGk5io…

Apart from the obvious conspiracy theory element to it, it's a pretty rock-solid explanation for economics.

I like how you ignore the fact that it was America who voted him into office. I guess democracy only applies to democrats.

A Republic is not perfect.  Obama's election victory and failed presidency has certainly demonstrated that.   It makes this toon even more apropos.

And George Bush was so much better. Also remember it was republicans who shut the government down out of spite and then tried to blame Obama because they lack the balls to stand up and say "We believe Obama Care is so bad that we are willing to put thousands of people out of work and risk lossing are jobs too stop it." If they did that then maybe I could respect them even if I didn't agree with them.

He was.  And that is not saying much.   In fact, Carter was better.

Obamacare is a tax  i.e. it forces young to buy insurance they otherwise would prob not need or buy.   It is an unsustainable model of redistribution.

No, our current health care is a model of unsustainable redistribution since without ObamaCare increasing the number of people who use Medicare and making sure that those who do not use health insurance pay a penalty, the cost of those people going to the emergency room would keep being placed on the backs of tax payers. And don't give me that crap about people not needing health insurance, everyone will eventually need to see a doctor once in their lives.    

Also George Bush was the retarded love child between a monkey an a conservative.

The 1 bright spot in the debate is that his supporters will have their health "insurance" costs (taxes) raised the most.

Things Obama has expressed:

-We should be tougher on kids about staying in school and working hard.

-America can't solve other country's problems.

-He has absolutely zero interest in taking away anybody's guns, only cracking down on military assault rifles (which I do not want ANYONE owning in the same city as me, and neither should you)

I could go on and on with things about him that conservatives ought to be pleased with. What reasons do you have for hating him completely?

I love assault rifles. Of course the meaning "assault rifle" basically means "scary" in legal jargon.

All libs want guns banned. It is taken as fact at the UN that any civilized nation bans guns. This from an org with many totalitarian regimes.

I'm pub my weltanshauung shortly and you can see how BO & I differ.

Saying "all libs want to ban guns" is as idiotic as me saying "all conservatives hate black people." I hate guns, but wouldn't take away anybody's right to protect themselves with them.

There is simply never any reason why you should be allowed to own one that can penetrate a wall or shoot dozens of bullets a second. Why would you need an assault rifle to protect yourself from a mugger? Even if THEY have one, a simple handgun gives you exactly the same chance of stopping them in their tracks.

Handguns can't stop a bear.

But a shotgun can, and that's not an assault weapon.

You know what else can protect you from bear attacks?

Not fucking around in bear territory.

Well, bear territory isn't fenced in ya'know, and they dont post signs every two feet saying, "Do not pass or a bear will maul your ass." And bears don't stay withing a specific territory. >_>

Shotguns = Limited range, too. Rifles have a longer range.

You don't get out much, do you?

:iconscythemantis:
scythemantis Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
And you have completely backwards priorities, don't you?

Have you any idea how rarely people are attacked and killed by large animals in general, let alone specifically bears? Most animal attacks are by dogs and most animal-related deaths are from venom.

I can't believe you brought up BEARS as an argument for owning assault weapons at all. That's the kind of argument I'd expect in a cartoon as an outrageous parody of logic. There haven't been enough bear-related deaths in all of history to justify giving the average American access to that much firepower.

:iconcircus-tiger:
Circus-Tiger Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2009   Traditional Artist
I brought up bears because that is what assault rifles are mainly used for. That, and lions, elk, and other such large game.

Of course large game attacks that result in a kill are frequent, but most people up in the north-west states probably don't want to take any chances, hmm?

Oh, and handguns won't do any good against a gun with a high rate of fire unless you have perfect aim and the quickest finger known to man. Even then one shot wouldn't do it.

Now, I assume you couldn't understand that I was joking in a way. I did not feel like getting into a full-out-fucking-debate over such a matter. Great. Now, I am tired and do not feel like arguing when you couldn't tell I wasn't specifically saying just bears attack. I thought the humour would be lost if I typed out every animal that would need a high-powered weapon to defend against.
