“Ackquille Pollard, who performs under the name Bobby Shmurda, was ordered held on $2 million bail at a hearing in state Supreme Court in Manhattan. His attorney, Howard Greenberg, failed to convince a judge that his client should be released without bail because he was framed and had no reason to run” (abcnews.com).
I don’t know what Shmurda was doing, but I’ve watched his videos. I am not a fan of his misogyny and misanthropy, but he is an interesting figure. His music and other gangster rappers remind me of the popularization and often celebration of the wild west gang warfare.
Drawing his picture was not to hard, except for his hat. Since the hat was a bit oversized, it was hard to depict without reducing the size of Shmurda’s face which I was not willing to do.
The point of this comic not to mock Kim Jong Un (he does that himself with his hair cut). He did issue a statement about how evil America is by torturing people. He obviously is a great fan of Dianne Feinstein.
No. The point of this comic is to show I can do my comics even if my scanner is dying. It will prolly be harder. Who knows? I did this comic in under five minutes and it looks not too bad.
I hate torture. I know the safety of the US is important. I know people were angry about 911 and were afraid, but torture is wrong and no one should be in the business of defending it.
However, I do not think Feinstein released her report because of timeliness or completed research. I think she released the report because the Republicans were coming to power and she wanted the work of the last few years to come to light. She was afraid of the political process rather than the righteousness of her cause.
I like Rachel Maddow. She is one of the few intelligent people on either MSNBC or FOX News (I include Fox because it, like MSNBC, constitutes the extremist press). I don’t always agree with her, but on occasion she tells the truth. In her snark filled voice one can hear the whispering of truth in the following video posted to Real Clear Politics: The press got direct instructions from Obama today.
I just voted at the charter elementary school down the road. I voted for some Democrats and some Republicans. No Libertarians for the first time. Or Socialists. The big thing to on election day is vote. As a political cartoonist, it would be hypocritical if I did not go out and vote. I hope everyone else does as well. If you don’t vote, then don’t complain about politics. Keep your trap shut and go back to video games, social media and sports.
