I refer you to the second season episode, "The Omega Glory" from TOS and "In a Mirror Darkly, part II" from ENT.

And it will be a cold day in Hell before I would reference anything in ENT.

"The Omega Glory" is shit. It's like a Rush song - it tries to be deep and meaningful but it ends up being juvenile, whereas an episode like "Catspaw" is like a Ramones song - it's fun and silly and doesn't try for anything more than that.

Great analogy there.

I still like Rush, though the "Omega Glory" not so much.

I thought it said, " We welcome our Capitalist running dog, Jewish patrons to our December 25th buffet." but I guess my Chinese is rusty.

I dont know where the fuck you get that, it never was meant to be fucking deep. The basis was the Captain gone bad vs. good Captain. How the fuck is that not cool?

Obama: We need to raise taxes on the rich!
Republicans: Fine, we'll raise taxes on those making $400,000 and more.
Obama: Agreed!

Obama and Republicans: What do we need to do about this next issue?
Obama: We need to raise taxes on the rich!
Republicans: Not this shit again.

Compromise does not mean raising taxes for every problem.

If the only solution to the problem is to gut Medicare and Social Security then raising taxes will win every time.

Re: The Random Political Cartoon Thread

cut does not equal gut. But cut something. Anything. The sequester seems to be the only way not to have an automatic increase of 7% and calling it "no increase in the budget" thanks to baseline budgeting.
