SallyT On December - 30 - 2012



Well, here we are at the end of 2012.  The world didn’t end. President Obama won re-election.  Congress hasn’t done much.  We are still at the fiscal cliff, not over, under, or around it.  So, as we take down the decorations, return gifts, face the bills, wait to see if congress can reach an agreement that we can live with, hope for peace in the Middle East and world wide, and work to control gun violence, how about we take a moment to find a smile.  Lets toast in 2013 with laughter, hope, and cheer.  I wish you all a safe, joyous, and Happy New Year!   ENJOY!

Retired, not by choice but the body said sit down! Married with two grown daughters and 3 grandchildren. Best friend is Mansion, my great dane. Love to laugh, love to make someone laugh, love to make new friends. I think I am a lot of fun but you can be the judge of that.

    Hi Sally – back from holiday, and thank you as always for a GREAT compilation of contributions. No one is my “fave” since they ALL are grand, and where you find them remains an impressive mystery to me.

    Happy New Year – keep those cartoons rolling. I now read my local paper, the NYT, and you. Without YOU, the Sunday no longer is complete! THANK YOU!

      Without you and your kind words and of course your knowledge my days are not complete. Hope you had a great holiday and the beginning of the new year has been enjoyable. Here’s to the days ahead and our time together as friends! :)

  2. Another great line up Sally. I especially like the guy at the returns desk, returning Congress, and the caption, “It doesn’t work.” Ain’t that the truth! :(

    Okay, Sally, this week I have a hands-down favorite! It’s the four branches of government. For the life of me, I cannot understand how one little poopyhead like grover norquist can hold so much power over our government.

    The rest of the cartoons were great; it’s just that grover’s hold on republicans/tpartiers has been a “pet peeve” of mine for quite some time. Not just in this election cycle, either. I will never understand how republicans can feign outrage over Bill Clinton getting a b.j. in the Oval Office; yet brag about their pledge to an unelected idiot. An unelected idiot who is married to one of “them American-hating muslims” nevertheless.

    Anyway, thanks for another great job, and taking the time to find all of these gems.

    I hope your New Year is everything you want it to be, and even more. I look forward to continuing to read your weekly Sunday Funnies, as well as “chatting” with you on Friday nights.

      After I read Sally’s reply, and then re-read my post, I feel I must add a clarification regarding my comment on norquist’s wife being one of “them American-hating Muslims.” I hope I didn’t leave the impression that I feel it’s wrong for norquist to be married to a muslim. I put the part about muslims in quotes, because I think it’s something a t/partier might say; therefore I can’t understand their allegiance to a man who is married to someone that t/partiers hate just because she is a muslim.

      Anyway, just wanted to clarify that I don’t hate muslims. I hate muslim extremists, just as I hate all extremists, no matter what their religion, or political party.

      Glenn, I am glad you found a favorite among them and yes, I agree that Norquist is an idiot! Little twerp!

      You have a great and safe New Years and I will see you on here next year!

      Thank you for taking the time to tell me you enjoyed the funnies. Means a lot to me!
