Weekend Update 11/18/2017: More pictures, more words

I keep saving various images to possibly use to illustrate a Friday Five post or a political commentary, then wind up using only a fraction of them. So, here are a few of those memes and graphics you may find amusing, enlightening, or thought-provoking:

“There's something really askew with this country's values. Health Care is considered a privilege; owning more mass murder weapons that serve no non-murderous function is considered a right.”

“It's not politics to say you're not a nazi.”

“If we could empty America's jails and prisons of pot smokers, there'd be plenty of room to start jailing real criminals, like bankers and politicians.”

“Police are more likely to be killed in homicides in states with more guns.”

“An assassin is really just a serial killer who takes request.” “Excuse you, they take commissions.” “Hey, man, can you kill this guy?” “All right, that will be $10,000.” “Ugh! Can't you just do it for the exposure? Whatever. You suck at murder anyway.”

About fontfolly

I've loved reading for as long as I can remember. I write fantasy, science fiction, mystery, and nonfiction. I publish an anthropomorphic sci-fi/space opera literary fanzine. I attend and work on the staff for several anthropormorphics, anime, and science fiction conventions. I live in Seattle with my wonderful husband, still completely amazed that he puts up with me at all.

    FYI, the comic is by Robot Hugs: http://www.robot-hugs.com/helpful-advice/

    It would be nice to credit the artist and link to the original instead of showing this version, which somebody has cropped to remove RH’s name and copyright statement.
