Regular readers know that I like to mock big government and the hacks who are drawn to politics.

This explains why I’ve always enjoyed cartoons that portray the state as a blundering, often-malicious, overweight nitwit. You can see some of my favorite examples here,here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, and here.

I have espoused that everything from Islam to the federal government are vulnerable to ridicule.

I was wrong. While I enjoy seeing the idiotic lampooned as much as the next guy, I have since ascertained they are innoculated in some strange way from ever feeling the effects of ridicule.

It doesn’t lead to self examination, introspection, change of heart, even to any sense of doubt.

Immune. They are going to f*** us until we are dead and they will never stop. Not ever. There will be no come to Jesus awakening. These people are already dead to any sense of shame. They are the real “Walking Dead” among us.

Nothing there. Empty space. A vacuum. Michael Moores from a replicating machine. Lacking an original thought their entire lives.

Crap in, Crap out.

The cancer doesn’t care if it kills the patient. The parasites don’t care if they kill their host. Results don’t matter.
