Flashback to '99: Janet Reno . . . Smokin'!

Click on image for larger version

You may remember the Justice Department's 1999 high-publicity suit against "Big Tobacco." The suit irked me on several different levels:

1. Tobacco companies are selling a legal product to willing customers. Every cigarette box clearly proclaims the dangers that await those who smoke its contents, so customers were taking a calculated risk. Leave the tobacco companies alone.

2. Tobacco use is known to be extremely dangerous. Why has the federal government been taking my money in order to pay for the medical expenses of people who knowingly threw their good health down the tubes?

3. If, indeed, the government has been wasting my money paying for the health care of self-abusers, and if, indeed, the government is going to waste more of my money by unjustly targeting the tobacco companies in a lawsuit to recover some of the money (my money!) which it initially wasted on health care, why won't I ever see a penny of the damages?

Catholic World Youth Day 2005: Cologne, Germany

As over 1 million youth gathered yesterday to join Pope Benedict XVI in offering the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, I thought of this verse from Psalm 65:

"O God of our salvation,
who art the hope of all the ends

of the earth,

and of the farthest seas."

Despite the fact that it's a little risque, this is one of my favorite "old" cartoons (drawn when I was 24). I hope America never has to endure such White House sleaze again, but it sure made for good cartooning!

NARAL Commercial: The Other Side

Click on image for larger version.

The text of the actual NARAL commercial (from the excellent review by the Annenberg Center:

: Seven years ago, a bomb destroyed a women's health clinic in Birmingham, Alabama.

Emily Lyons: When a bomb ripped through my clinic, I almost lost my life.

Announcer: Supreme Court nominee John Roberts filed court briefs supporting violent fringe groups and a convicted clinic bomber.

Emily Lyons: I'm determined to stop this violence so I'm speaking out.

Announcer: Call your Senators. Tell them to oppose John Roberts. America can't afford a Justice whose ideology leads him to excuse violence against other Americans.

Flashback to '98: The Narrow Gates to Misfortune

This cartoon, drawn in 1998, expresses my free market sympathies. The feds want your business to do well, but not too well. Microsoft is a prime example of that. What greater American success story is there? Bill Gates' little company has literally transformed the world and created heretofore unimagined opportunities for millions, yet he is constantly vilified by leftists and scrutinized by the government. I remain basically anti-anti-trust.
