No One Expects the Panda Kindergarten!

Certainly not the Arizona GQP!

It’s not an audit, it’s a “Fraudit”!!!!!

WHAT COULD POSSIBLY GO WRONG!?!?!?!?!?!

It’s getting harder to keep the faith, but keep the faith we must! Meanwhile, I’m sure things are getting sorted out at the Panda House…is PPJ real, or a collective figment of everyone’s imagination, what with Pinky being a teenager still and living at home with her family.

Hypocrisy Unlimited

I had so hoped that once President Biden (No Quotation Marks Needed!) took office, I could stop hearing or thinking about politics, but no…alas, the hypocritical hits just keep on coming!

Sigh…

Meanwhile, the former guy is doing stand-up of his greatest hits, (“the election was stolen”, “I’ll be coming back into power” “The Democrats are destroying democracy”) at any wedding held at his club where they don’t have the sense to lock the doors after all the guests have arrived. There is probably a ‘toon there, although I’m not sure I have the stomach to stand drawing him again.

Back to the Panda House on Thursday! Huzzah!

Be the Bear!

May the Fourth Be With You!

Nixon’s Ghost STILL Won’t Go Away!

I promise there will be more cute panda ‘toons, coming soon. As the ghost of the former guy (this seems to be how he is referred to on Twidder, so as not to give any searchable items) just won’t go away, we have a few last things to get out of our system!  At least ZooNooZ did not cover #FascistFest®️! No one would volunteer to go to it, so you’ll have to find info on that elsewhere.

Meanwhile, Bob continues to be surprised…

Nixon’s ghost just won’t go away!

Be the bear!

Don’t forget! For the month of March (while we are in the Panda Season of Love) every felty order will receive a free roll of Panda Season of Love Washi tape! Decorating fun!

Can we agree that Minch McTurtle is a jerk?

So many dolts, so little time! It is hard to imagine how the junior senator from Texas thought it was in ANY way appropriate to go jetting off to Cancun while most of his state was
A) freezing
B) without electricity or natural gas
C) without water, drinkable or otherwise.

His pathetic excuse of an apology tour on right wing propaganda “news” shows, demonstrates just how completely clueless he is. And this on the heels of his aiding and abetting The Big Lie, which contributed to Mittens attempt at armed insurrection. I’m sure there will have to be a ‘toon about this, but meanwhile…

Minch McTurtle attempts to have it both ways…

Two headed, two faced…why is he still here?

Sigh…

I’m glad most of my Texas friends have checked in to let me know there are okay. Please feel free to chime in in the comments. I know that there are more of you out there in Pandyland.

Be the Bear!

NOOZFLASH!!! Frank says this was definitely NOT HIM!!!!

All’s Well That Ends?

While we have a new President (no quotation marks needed!) I’m afraid we have not seen the last of Mittens. How can we miss you if you won’t go away? I’m tempted to run a post of Mittens’ greatest hits, but, well, he doesn’t have any!

There is news on the Panda Chronicles Collection front! I am hard at work on Book 9, and hope to have it in shape to submit to my self publishing vehicle in another week or so. Stay tuned!

And now, here is a little assortment for our Sunday ‘toon fest, of February ‘toons through the years!

Ever wondered where all these pandas came from?

How splendiferous is chocolate? Let me count the ways

What do you mean by “was?”

The Life of PIE….get it? *chortle chortle*

Bao Bao is unhappy

Could Mama Mei Xiang really be contemplating letting Pinky loose on the pandy kindy?

Have you heard? the real Pinky is now a mommy! 

You know we’re just kidding about this, right?

it’s the panda, the panda season of love!

Summit

“Why can’t my children be as well behaved as Lun Lun’s,” mused Mei Xiang

In fact, not only was as bad as we thought it would be, it was worse.

Wee are pandas too!!!!

WEll, it COULD have been a hunt of Mittens Jr.!

I hope you enjoyed this trip down memory lane! Stay ‘tooned for more new ‘toons this week!

Be the Bear!

A New Day Has Dawned

Morning has broken.
T*ump has left the building

WE HAVE A PRESIDENT (No * or ” ” needed!)

You may or may not have voted for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, but they are our new President and Vice President. I think they are people of integrity, that they will work hard to fix the things T*ump broke, and things that were broken before he got there. They will not be successful with everything, but they will give it their best effort.

Many of us (like me) will be traumatized for a while. We came so close to losing our democracy and I am really glad that we didn’t! President Biden has put some really smart and dedicated people in charge of getting the pandemic under control, and while we have some hard times ahed, I believe that they will be able to get it under control if we all do our part.

Meanwhile, we can say a not very fond “Buh BYE” to the  man who would have liked to be king…

Mittens has left the building.

For those who are interested, my felty Fight Bunny has been claimed, but their project has a bit more to go before the reach their funding goal. Check out The Effervescent Adventures of Fight Bunny and make a pledge, for a book (digital or otherwise) and mebbee a Fight Bunny pin!

We are the Pandas!

I’d Like You to do us a Favor, Though…

It’s been a long day, filled with revelations, most of which are enough to keep me staring at the ceiling all night.

So I will just leave this here, and perhaps pontificate another day.

Remember a week ago when THIS was the biggest crime he had committed so far?

Stay strong
Stay Safe
Stay Brave

In my lifetime…

More thoughts on where we are….

In my lifetime, I never thought I’d see an armed attempt at a takeover in our nation’s Capitol. I never thought I would see elected representatives in the government excusing an outgoing “president’s” attempt to stay in power at any cost. That no members on Congress died is a small miracle. But still 5 lives were lost, one a member of the Capitol Police force defending the Congress.

When HWMNBN first announced his candidacy 6 years earlier, using racist, authoritarian language, I wanted to believe what he said would immediately disqualify him. I wanted to believe he had no chance of winning the nomination over far more seasoned Republicans.

But on that day, a small, smoldering fire of apprehension started within me.

I wanted to believe he could not get nominated but he did. I wanted to believe he could not be elected, but he was.

At every step, he crossed another line. At every outrage, every attack on democracy and human decency, people in power let it go. “Let him have this small victory. What harm could it do to humor him?” But like a wildfire that grows exponentially each minute you fail to put out the flames, he grew larger and more difficult to contain.

There is not enough space here to list all of his outrages. Other people have done it far better than I could. (See Amy Siskind’s The Weekly List or Heather Cox Richardson’s interview with Bill Moyer)  But in the last seven days, he has both made a phone call to the GA Secretary of State which could certainly be considered extortion, and incited an armed assault on the Capitol where the entire Congress and the Vice President were convened to certify the vote of the Electoral College. Actually, those 2 events took place within 4 days.

We are seeing history in the making and quite frankly, I’m not sure how this is going to turn out.

It depends on how deep the rot goes, I guess. I believe in the goodness and dedication and competence of our incoming president Joe Biden and VP Kamala Harris. They are already compiling their team of experienced, competent, dedicated cabinet and staff. If they are not prevented from taking office, I believe with a lot of hard work, they can turn things around and get the country working again.

The death toll from COVID19 is about to reach 400,000. That is more than the population of all Whidbey Island and the San Juans. Barely a year ago, HWMNBN was impeached for the first time, and when COVID19 reared it’s ugly head.

There can be no healing without accountability. Those who knew better, who amplified the Big Lie about the outcome of this election must be called to account. Whether he is removed by the 25th Amendment, Impeachment, or resignation, The Big Liar must go. 10 days IS too long to leave him with the means for more destruction.

I was in college when Richard Nixon resigned. It was a little scary and a little thrilling. I watched it on television. This week, where we don’t know if there will be the will to demand accountability, is far more terrifying.

Love to you all.

The Ghost of Richard Nixon has some thoughts:

Can’t ghosts have opinions too?

“And they called ME a crook!”

If Pinky wins the 2020 election, can we have panda-gate?

Um…

All together now!

“crime” is not a verb

Won’t he just go away?

Be brave pandas!

What a Difference a Day Makes

What is that I see out of the corner of my eye? Is that a ray of hope?

Thank you Stacey Abrams, for all of your very hard work over the last decade, to bring more fairness to voting, both in Georgia, and in the country. You bring us hope for the future. we will try to live up to your example. (Written late Tuesday, before the Wednesday debacle in DC)

But now…we are not quite rid of Mittens yet, are we?*

We shall overcome!

Panda on!

*You Broke it You Bought It

I add this in the wee hours of Thursday, It has been a hell of a day in DC. Our nation’s Capitol, attacked by thugs, deliberately urged on not only at tRUmp’s hate rally this morning, but since before the election, as he told his most virulent supporters not to stand down, but to “stand back and stand by.”

This was no peaceful protest. This was a riot, instigated by the person who would demand our loyalty, allegiance, who would claim for his own all the resources of this country.

Over 350,000 people have died from a pandemic that was in his power to halt. But he chose his own interests (so he thought) over the health and safety of this country’s people. His vile minions broke into the halls of Congress, took selfies in offices that they broke into and ransacked. The defiled our institutions. This was no peaceful sit in. This was a lawless mob.

I am beyond despair, beyond anger. With each beacon of hope-this week from the election of Jon Ossoff and rReverend Raphael Warnock-comes the corresponding backlash of evil toxicity from Donald J Trump. To the Senators and House members who have chosen to follow him down this road of false narratives, I have nothing but contempt. The stain of their rejection of the oath they swore to the Constitution should follow them for the rest of their life. There should be no redemption for them.

I fear for my friends in the DC area. Please stay safe. I have to believe we will get through this, but we will be ever changed, and our country’s reputation will forever be tarnished by these events.
