Mr. Bowman, sagacious missive. Majority of America's problems are promulgated by the complete laziness (physically and mentally) of its citizens. We do not want to think or workout. Let the government do it for us.

Love your writing, Joel. When the experts start selling the idea that nuclear winter will offset global warming, I guess we’ll know we’ve reached peak bullshit.

Your reference to Francis’ email was an oasis of humor in the desert of my indignation: “…those well-known, alt-right conspiracy cauldrons; Harvard, Stanford and Oxford universities…”

I almost shat myself laughing.

And re: the biology question in the Supreme Court hearings…I don’t need a degree in zoology to recognize a Lion or tiger. It’s sort of obvious, eh?

Anyway, keep up the good work.

A brilliant summation of the thought orthodoxy that is a plague upon our body politic. Fantastic job Joel!

I liked the whole piece! Great writing! Great Cartoon! Two hundred private jets attending a meeting to put the clamp on the guy driving the 'Gas guzzling Humvee'. Just saying! Florida Jimmy living in Paradise, with Alligators (good eating), Bears (good eating), Coyotes (not so good), and Monkeys (a nuisance). Nice weather. No earthquakes, but some sink holes. Wonderful fun-loving people, except some of the visitors.

Nice high-speed drive down the road in Seshtown. I enjoyed the stream-of-consciousness flow of this one, including your entertaining drive-by shootings. All of the victims deserved what they got.

I have no idea if it was the last glass of high altitude malbec or just the high altitue itself but this epistle was a jolly fine read - Thanks

I have been beginning to think that there is noone left to listen to the experts because everyone appears to be an expert these days. If you want to follow an idea, no matter how hairbrained, you can always find an expert to back you up. Where on earth have these experts been hiding ?

Covid certainly has a lot to answer for.

I'm just a guy and somehow I know the difference between a woman a man or a want to be female . Now our fearless leaders are going to vote for a woman (?) who does not know what makes up a woman? Unbelievable.

Great article. Much like “inflate or die” it’s also become “lie or die”. The lies have to grow to cover the previous policies that didn’t work.

And now that November is around the corner, pay no attention to the two previous years. Now we will be hearing about how our "masters" saved us from doom and gloom and reopened schools and the economy.

Great piece! What’s most worrying is that these experts control the narrative & have brainwashed the masses who are now being herded like sheep off a cliff.

I'm not thinking most of the public is buying the expert opinions of the unnamed scientist on every subject anymore. Nor are they believing elections are not rigged, if not, the process of who runs for office in a two party system is rigged. Vote for this one or that, they'll finally get you that 40 acres an a mule.

It's all one big distraction, a sleight of hand, look over there don't look here. All this b.s. is churned out by the machine to take our minds off of what's really important in life.

A good patriot always has tar simmering next to a bucket of feathers, and a wooden rail. Sadly we can't see through the experts in the forest to focus on the foreign king and his minions.

The Russians aren't coming the commies are in the White House.

Joel another ripper .. wondering if there was anyone who did not get a gurnsey in creating the social f***up that you call western civilization today .. most of my friends in India near/far east etc are so busy buying stuff in plastic bags they haven't got a clue about any of these supposed human issues .. they're just try to survive another day regardless of what their govts say or promise .. only self righteous idiots of what ever political religious faith seek to EN-force their views on others (Putin versus Ukraine) and may the victors not migrate to our/your neighborhood .. might still makes right no matter how much gold/silver/cash you have it's still about kill or be killed .. ask Bill who really killed Carlos and why?

yep the old Able/Cain legacy still enjoys lot of popularity amongst the human species ..
