Cartoon About Death Is Missing Something...
The Looking Spoon ^ | 9-16-11 | Jared H. McAndersen

Posted on 09/16/2011 10:37:47 AM PDT by The Looking Spoon

Since it's trying to place a sense of value for one tragedy over another I'm not much of a fan of the point this cartoon is trying to make.



I also think it's missing a panel...

Thing is, the starving third world children could be saved through the usage of DDT and drought resistant cereal grains.

Folks fail to recognize that the poverty in the world is due to gov’t oppression, NOT an inability to produce sufficient food.

40,000 people have been killed by blonde hotdogs?

Blonde drivers on cell phones, maybe.

In order to obviate possible dangerous confusion, it requires a seperate remote.

Right here you go!

And the poverty of the soul....envy and pride which create this need to have power over others and prove one’s superiority through wealth, power, materialism, to validate one’s worth, since God does not supply it and people and possessions are always transitory and can not fill the chasm for long.

That human need to fill the void left by no God, reduces man to inhumanity towards others........ which always results eventually in a final solution. Lots of examples throughout history of godless people killing and torturing to give them the orgasm and feelings that they are alive and powerful and worth something and have power over death....they try to make themselves gods.

A little moral equivalence?

Buildings don’t kill people. Starving children don’t kill people.

Muslim terrorists blow up buildings; Muslim warlords cause famines; Muslims want nuclear weapons.

Thing is, the starving third world children could be saved through the usage of DDT and drought resistant cereal grains.

Don't believe that DDT is some kind of miracle. It was never banned in South Africa, India, Pakistan and a few other places. In all of them, it's almost completely useless now because of the emergence of resistant mosquitoes.

Thanks, Null. Your screen name should be “Compassionate”. You are rare.

There is no way that there is 41,975,000 abortions per year.

What is missing in your cartoon is facts.

The point isn’t DDT but what its banishment represents. Politically correct but nebulous pseudo scientific studies carry more weight than human lives and living conditions.

I’m certain modifications could have been discovered over the last 30 years to stay ahead of mosquito changes had DDT not been banned.
