Independence…or Else

I told you a rant was coming…

This has been a really hard week to wrap my head around. First the disastrous commentary on Biden’s debate performance. Granted, the debate was pretty terrible. Biden’s low energy and general demeanor was not ideal. But neither was TFG’s non- stop firehose of lies.

It’s disgusting that the media, particularly the NYT and the pundit class were all baying for Biden’s blood, and at the same time ignoring and minimizing his busy schedule and strong, stirring speeches at these events (G-7! D-Day! Major fundraisers in NY and CA! President stuff!) and completely ignoring the lies of a 34 times convicted felon who lies more than he breathes.

The only newspaper that had the guts to say, “Hey, maybe the guy who has been convicted of 34 felonies, stole national nuclear secrets and tried to over throw an election…maybe HE should step down,” was the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Honestly, I don’t know if he should step down or not. Only Joe Biden knows, and an overwhelming number of primary contest voters voted for him. I can’t imagine the chaos it would cause if he did. I’m against anything that hands the election to You Know Who. If you haven’t read about the Heritage Foundation’s Project 2025, you should at least read some summaries. For starters, they want to replace career civil servants with TFG loyalists. They want a national abortion ban, gutting of all regulations and the agencies that regulate them. You like clean air? too bad. We can’t tell polluting corporations what to do. You think there should be public education? Nope. That’s out. Medicare, medicaid, Social Security: they’re all on the chopping block. But don’t worry. You won’t live long enough to need elder care.

And then there is the “Supreme” Court…

What. The. Actual. Fuck.

On this, the day that the Declaration of Independence was signed, the document that said all men (well, white men, no women or POC need apply) are created equal and no one is above the fucking law, well…the Heritage Foundation Federalist Society Justices, just said, “New phone, who dis?”

In essence they put themselves above the law, as what they laid out seems to have been, “well, we’ll tell you if we think the president has immunity for this or that act, or not.” They opened the door to lawless corruption from the White House, and no way to rein it in. I’m not a historian, but I’ve listened to enough historians in the last several days to know that wasn’t what the authors of the Constitution intended.

I don’t mean to rain on anyone’s parade or picnic (pass the marshymallows!) I just had to get this out of my head. In the meantime…

Here are some pandas!

The only way out is through, and the only way through is to vote like everyone’s life depends on it. They want us to be demoralized and stay home. Don’t fall for it.

Be the BEAR!
Bob T Vote Blue all the way up and down the ballot Panda

    Little pookie holding on in the last panel is so touching. Also, I LOVE your “rant” and the ‘toon.

      Thank you! Pookie was having a hard time reaching the counter because Six and Sebben were in the way. Glad you liked my rant. It felt good!

    What?? Pinky says no poofing? I say the more poofing the better! If only.
    So should we read anything into Bubba not being in the last frame? Did he slip out to go save the world? Yay Bubba! (Yes, reality is a bit too much for me these days.)

      He’s not there? Oops. I just forgot to put him in! It’s hard to get all the pandas in, so no inference should be made from the absence of Bubba! I’m pretty sure PPJ didn’t poof him.

    You have just said everything that’s been going through my head for the last, well forever. What are we doing? What have we become? All I can think of is that horrible excuse for a human being saying,” I love the uneducated.” I am sure he along with all his treasonous cronies do in fact, “love the uneducated.”
    And sadder to me is that the Dems will NEVER seize upon this new ruling. With the stroke of a pen, Joe could put an end to everything. But morals and basic humanity keep him from doing just that.
    Vote blue up and down the ballot this November and maybe, just maybe, we can be rid of this stain upon humanity once and for all.

      It’s kind of amazing that some people would rather have the guy who says “everything I do is legal if I do it” instead of the guy that is offered the ultimate power and says that would be wrong.TFG lies every time he opens his mouth. We truly must vote Blue if we are to save our democracy.
      I’m just gonna keep drawing pandas and saying what I think till they come to take me away.

    Our lives DO depend on it! Can’t we just get Frank and Mikey on the case? Thye must know a lot of out-of-work scary-looking bears to help us out by getting people to listen.

    You read my mind. Thank you for your rant. I have been watching a lot of panda videos lately and they always make me smile!

    I’m team Josie. I hope she finds the deadbeat dad and totally nails him! In the interim I hope we can forget Joe had a bad night and allow him the grace of being human.

    1. Panda in Chief Post author

      It’s going to be a rough few weeks. I trust Joe Biden to know if he can see this through. whatever he decides, we must vote blue!
      As far as Josie goes, I hope Otis has some good hiding places.
