I have so many things to be thankful for today and all the rest of my days. Life isn’t always perfect and I can, and do, complain with the best of the complainers – but – I also know I am fortuniate beyond my deserving to have been born and lived my life in this country. With it’s flaws, and what country doesn’t have some, it is still, in my opinion, the greatest place on earth to live. And I am thankful that I do.
I am thankful beyond telling for friends and family who love me beyond my deserving. I am always thankful for that and also amazed.
I am also thankful for 2 small things. Things that make me happy. One of them is cheesecake and the other is cartoons. Political cartoons. Conservative political cartoons. Although during the Holidays the line is often blurred between liberal and conservative cartoonists somewhat. Some of those on the left come up with some delightful Holiday cartoons. I’m thankful for that because I really don’t like thinking they are evil all the way through.
Below are few that I enjoyed this morning.
Rick McKee, with whom I often disagree, reminds us once again that we are one made up of many. Those who insist on dividing us into easy controlled little tribes are not our friends.
I don’t often agree with Bill Day but this is an amusing and perfect example of why I sometimes do.
Jeff Koterba and the reality of the times in which we live.
This wonderful Paul Fell cartoon should become a classic!
Joe Heller always has terrific holiday cartoons. This one is no exception.
Henry Payne has been a favorite of mine for a long time. This silly cartoon is one of the reasons. I love his often skewed look at life. Perhaps because I share it.
Another great cartoon from the always brilliant Michael Ramirez.
I love taking potshots at Elizabeth Warren whom I find repulsive and this superb Pat Cross cartoon does it so well I don’t feel the need to do it myself. Thanks Pat!
No collection of cartoons featuring turkeys would be complete without Adam “Shifty” Schiff. Steve Kelly did it admirably in this cartoon.
Last but far from least is this great Gary Varvel cartoon. The man is is a genius and his cartoons a delight!
