Send in the Clowns~!

trump cartoon 10

A very good friend came to visit us and I took some time off from blogging. I just didn’t want to waste my time in front of the computer, when we had a full schedule and such a great time. Blogging has become a part in my life, but I don’t want it to dictate my life, because that would take the fun out of it. 

Blogging is really fun for me and I want to continue to spread the joy, but a little bit different than before.

As much as I tried to be non-political on my blog, it’s just not happening. It’s like Ron White once said: “I have the right to remain silent… but I don’t have the ability.” Left and right there are donkeys and elephants campaigning and for the first time ever, since I am allowed to vote, I don’t know where I belong. I mean I know where my principles and believes are, but I just don’t see anyone on the horizon who can get me excited, or who would deserve my vote.

I don’t believe anymore, I guess that’s what it all comes down to and I know, I am not the only one. I feel that a big majority in this country is disappointed in both parties. “Sick and tired” of the same old, that’s at least how I feel.

Many of us call it the clown mobile when we talk about some of the candidates and I wish I could laugh about it. Many things they say or stand for make me pretend to throw up in my imaginary bucket, that’s hidden under my desk.

So, we have a little bit more than one year of campaign torture to endure, until they Presidential election and there is no way I can hold back my opinion for that long…so screw it, now I am getting involved and will have some fun by doing so.

I have been a good ole Ladybug for over a year, now it’s time to spread my wings and make some turbulence :-).

I love political cartoons and caricature and I found a few good ones that I would like to share. Today I would like to start with my friends the elephants, just because they are just an easy target to begin with; here are some of this year’s best cartoons so far:

  1. This is serious clowning indeed. It has us non-Americans worried too. I mean who will be next? Bernie Sanders would get my vote, but then here in the UK I’ve just voted for Jeremy Corbyn as the new Labour Party leader. With that in mind, I am getting more than a little irritated that the words ‘left wing’ and ‘socialist’ are used like insults, when the people they are slung at only want fair play for all. One wonders when concern for humanity became something to fear and ridicule. Love the cartoons 🙂

    • Sadly the one who should run for President doesn’t. I don’t see anybody on the horizon who I will vote for. Bernie Sanders, or Clinton are the choice I would have to make to vote for the lesser evil…if that makes sense.

  2. Sadly, it is a case of “Send in the clowns” for the most part. What everyone seems to be forgetting is that we are electing a President of the United States, some one who needs to have the knowledge of how the world is turning and how to handle the main players of other countries We need an intelligent person who is cognizant of the important issues and able to negotiate wisely with experience in that area.

    • I will end up having a concussion from shaking my head. I wish someone could explain to me what we have become. I mean is this for real??? I know it is real, but then it’s hard to believe. I mean the world is laughing about us…is that what they all have in mind?
      It’s comical and so sad.

      • The world laughed at us with Bush. I was working overseas, and the people looked upon me with pity that I had such a president. I think we have spawned a generation that is consumed with getting as much as they can for themselves and to hell with their constituents. To me, they’re like a bunch of little boys playing King of the Hill.Unfortunately, it is our country they are playing with.
