Stage Four restrictions return to Austin, thanks dickheads!

Austin has a pretty good vaccination rate but remember, we’re surrounded by Texas. This is a land filled with Ammosexuals, Neo-Confederates, Bigots and morons unaware their protests of “nobody helped me when I was on food stamps!” is a contradiction. … Continue reading

1996: The Daily Show launches

Damn! Time flies too quickly at my age. I’m glad this outlasted South Park and probably will. It wasn’t necessarily Comedy Central’s first attempt at current events-based comedy. Bill Maher’s Politically Incorrect didn’t survive ABC’s cowardice and Maher’s love of his own … Continue reading

Perception then and now

The person who modified this cartoon to fit today’s dilemma was being too generous with the MAGAt’s answer. Given how blindly loyal and stupid they are, the MAGAT’s reply shouldn’t even be a number, it would more likely be “Jesus” … Continue reading

CV-19 outbreaks spiking in Moron Zones

Yet another news dump from the No Shit! Department. The Delta Variant is flourishing in the pockets of the US where the vaccination rate is low. You know, MAGAtland, which is filled with the “real” Amerikans, the kind who believe their dumb … Continue reading

Texas Democrats tell GOP to suck it! 2021 edition

Last week, Governor Shitbag who only represents Whites making over six digits and are loyal to the Confederacy, called the expected “special session” to put forth the GOP’s voting reforms. There was a slim chance Texas could’ve gone for Grampa’ Brunch … Continue reading

A Prius that’s acceptable in Red Texas

Since Toyota got outed for supporting Neo-Confederate and MAGAt Republicans, they claim they’ll stop giving those assholes money but they will still cater to that crowd with a hybrid vehicle. It satisfies a certain Republican who sort of cares about … Continue reading

‘Merica! turns 245, will it see 250?

 These Irish comedians are painfully on the nose about ‘Merica these days. Meanwhile, I hope to get my own copy of Team America since Alamo isn’t allowed to show it anymore for fear of North Korea’s wrath. I guess we … Continue reading

Rot in Hell Donald Rumsfeld

He was one of the architects of the continued mess America is in. Still waiting for those Arabs to welcome us as liberators while they kill our soldiers with mines and bullets. Rummy helped pump up the lie about Iraq … Continue reading

Sadly, under 40% of Texas is vaccinated

This illustration works in a couple different ways. How stupid the “natural immunity” crowd is, proving that Dr. Toupée Paul went into politics in Kentucky because he is a shitty doctor. He makes Dr. Nicke Riviera a Nobel winner. The … Continue reading

Texas, the land where the Confederacy remains in power

My adopted state had been making news in a negative way as it often does. As the saying goes, Austin is a great city that’s unfortunately surrounded by Texas. Anyway, all of the statewide offices are held by Republicans and … Continue reading

NIMBY forces won

Before I left for vacation, we had an election on a series of propositions (aka governments not doing their job by blaming the electorate) and I wasn’t allowed to vote in anything because I live in unincorporated Pflugerville. The big … Continue reading

1996: Australia’s enough is enough moment

I’ve forgotten how many shooting sprees the US has had just this year but 25 years ago, the Aussies had what was their worst on the Island of Tasmania. After that, they reformed their gun laws and now being gunned … Continue reading

RIP Walter Mondale

I’m glad to see that most of the stories about the former veep’s passing focused on how he changed the role instead of the alleged trouncing he received from St. Reagan in 1984. This is what I hope he will also … Continue reading

Republicans send experts to the Border

A gaggle of Republicans chose to visit the Border (aka US-Mexico) for some “fact-finding” missions. They’re about several decades behind on giving a crap but hey, there’s a Dem in the White House so it has always been Grampa’ Brunch’s … Continue reading

Homeless camp catches fire on I-35

It happened this morning way down on the south side of the city, but tents under Austin’s major overpasses (35, MoPac and 183) are a common site since we have a lack of affordable housing. Demand is outstripping the supply … Continue reading
