Ben is a great example of why America's mental health care system is in crisis.

Well, someone has to protect that poor man against the siren call of the dark meat...

Garrison is a turdbaby. The only thing he's got going for him is he can draw scenery better than Bil Keane could.

I can understand the argument from a financial standpoint about "free stuff" but why is equality scary?

"Equality" means equal rights for everyone, including those people.

Because mediocre white men will no longer be able to play the game of life on easy.

We should we give minorities equality?!? Do they think they're better than us?

Equality is a privilege, not a right.

In the Odyssey, if I remember correctly, Odysseus had his crew tie him to the mast so he could hear the siren's song.

This means, that whoever is tied to that last, in this case, the Millenials, is ultimately in charge.

I realize that Ben always makes Trump look like a studly Adonis in his drawings rather than cartoonish fat blob of shiat that he actually looks like in real life, but this time he's also kinda given the same treatment to Kamala Harris (though not as extreme, obviously). Tulsi Gabbard and AOC aren't drawn all that much more seductively than they actually look in real life, but I'll bet Kamala Harris wishes she looked like that in a bikini!  Hell, she might consider framing this one.

And BTW, that so-called "millennial" tied to the mast looks to be about 50 years old. And why is Cap'n Combover there tying his passenger up like a goddamn prisoner?  Is he going to make the guy walk the plank next?

He's supposed to look Jewish.  Most of Garrison's generic societal dangers are either black or Jewish.  Donald is tying him to the mast for his own protection, because everyone knows Millennials are children that should be protected from themselves before they drag us all down with them.

God, I farking hate this guy.

For someone whose entire career is myth making, you'd think Garrison would be more familiar with the myth of the Sirens and Odysseus.  If Trump is the Captain of the ship of state he depicts, he'd be the one tied to he mast and tempted by the Siren's song as has been mentioned above.  But Garrison's errors don't stop there- a sailing ship's helm isn't near the bow of the ship, it's aft or almost amidship where it's easier and uses less material to rig it to the rudder it's designed to control.   A ship's Captain in the age of sail would always wear his uniform hat whenever he was on deck but Captain Comb Over is uncovered. Garrison has drawn a ship without gunwales and placed a balustrade where the gunwales should be. The deck planking runs parallel with the beam of the ship rather than the keel. etc, etc.

I'm a lubber from Nebraska FFS and even I noticed that shiat.

In their warped little minds, sex is a privilege for straight (white) men to enjoy, and they enjoy it best with a powerless underclass.

They don't want sex with a willing, informed, consenting partner.  They want sex with someone when they have every advantage and the other person has none.  They want sex anonymously.  They want sex with no possibility of reprisal if there's infection or pregnancy afterward.  They want sex with someone who can't complain, can't go to the police, can't go to the newspapers.  And most of all, they want the rush of power that all of that brings.

They don't care if same-sex marriage is made illegal or 'sodomy' is a federal crime again.  They can always get theirs.  And as long as they can get theirs, it's not a problem.

Dunno, but I'd stuff a banana in AOC's underpants, if you know what I mean and I think you do.

This.  I think he is confused with a harpy.  Siren's are not winged.

Yeah, that yacht builder was able to hire dozens of workers and employ them at a fair compensation for a long period. Their families enjoyed financial stability and less stress. That's how capitalism works.

Wait...you say that since Trump is President and that boat was paid for by the government?  With my tax dollars redistributing my wealth to the yacht builder? WTF! This is socialism at it's worst!

I'm glad somebody else noticed that too. Apparently, Ben Garrison has never actually seen a woman in bikini bottom in real life. Nor has he seen a grass skirt worn.

Try as I might, I can't find it in my heart to hate Ben Garrison. If anything, it's a mixture of amusement, befuddlement, and pity. He's just a two-bit artist screaming impotently into the void, and the people who seem to take notice to him the most often are people like us, who rightfully mock him. He harkens me back to a more innocent time when alt-right weirdos were just a bunch of losers on the internet who-despite their inherent awfulnes-were ultimately harmless in their patheticness.

Nah, I don't hate Ben Garrison. . . I hate Trump though, 'cause he effectively legitimized these losers.

Mythologically they were a blend of human and bird.  There's a popular misconception that they were mermaids, probably because the encounter with Odysseus takes place at sea

Captain Donnie is actually going to dump the American hostage on Bankruptcy Island.

No doubt that while penning "The Sirens" Garrison had to get up from his drawing desk a few times and fight through his self-loathing by using his tears as lubricant to fap.

Garrison is actually in that picture. He's down in the poop deck.

I thought the boat was named the Millennial...

I console myself in my wrongness with the knowledge that me being wrong is simply a moment of learning unlike Ben Garrison's being kicked out of the furry porn industry for life...

Because it gives Ben those funny feelings down in his no-no spot.

Trump can't even drive a golf cart, much less manage a ship.

RTOGUY: I can understand the argument from a financial standpoint about "free stuff" but why is equality scary?


When right-wingers hear a left-winger talk about "equality", they assume that that left-winger means equality of income. The right wing authors train them this way. What you mean by "equality" a right winger would call "equal rights" so as to be more specific.
Although it shouldn't be denied that, historically, some left wing people really did call for equality of income.

If we're not going there, where are we going?

What is Trump's plan for moving forward?

His work is really funny, though.
