The Treasonous Plot To Repeal & Replace Will Ram The Equivalent Of An "Invisible" Middle Digit Up The Anus Of Every Man, Woman, And Child In The USA If Market Forces Operate According To The Feverish Schemes Of The Traitors

No rest for the weary though; even though it’s the weekend I have to get right back to work getting ahead on the weekly strip because my trip to the Galway Arts Festival is coming up in about a week and a half. I’ll be speaking on the afternoon of July 22 if anyone on this list happens to be in Ireland. I got a nice full-page article in the Irish Times last week in anticipation of the gig; see if you can guess which subhed particularly delighted me.

Until next week ...

Dan (aka Tom)

And this blogger is grateful that Tom/Dan did not focus on the G20 meeting that swallowed up the media last week and focused instead on the health care melodrama with a critique of the Traitors' plot to destroy our health care system with the tired and shabby nostrum of the "free market." Which was a cue for Tom/Dan to bring back "The Invisible Hand Of The Market" wearing a head mirror, a stethoscope, and a white jacket to babble market nonsense to an obviously ill patient. If this is (fair & balanced) quackery, so be it.
