@Soosie 

Just for the record, I’m not okay with it as I understand the courtesy to be maintained on this Online site. 

Where are the limits whether it is a drawn cartoon, or an animated cartoon or clip...how much blood and gore are the limit? Shootings, stabbings, decapitation?

I do find it preferable to not beat dead horses, whip dogs, or skin cats!

Perhaps that is just what I think.

@williamb39198...........I already told you that, but once again..........it gives posters here something to write about. Yours is a far reach when you bring a cartoon drawn animal into it and worry about someone mistreating it. It is not a REAL animal. Someone drew it. Are you OK with that? Hope so. I think this one has provided all that can be done with it. Don't worry, when I have time I will hunt another.

@Soosie 

What good deed was performed? Apparently none if one is a horse!

Okay, so what was the purpose, even in cartoon form of showing a bloody form of an animal beaten to death?

You stated that it has served it’s purpose, what might that be?

Went back to check the cartoon...

So what is the limit of blood and gore in cartoons? And what is the limit of showing abuse of a person or animal?

Or are there limits? I don’t care for it nor think that it should be part of our discussions.

Seems that we get called on use of words, would the same rules apply to graphics? Would seem so. Anyone?

Maybe we could get some thoughts on this?.......................................Yes indeed, If posters go this direction, the cartoon should be good for another day or two and serve its purpose. I saw that some had to go to writing about Trumps' mice and I wanted to try to do a good deed by giving a few other topics. Guess no good deed goes unpunished.

The Mueller investigation has produced multiple indictments and some are going to prison. The Mueller investigation isn't two years old yet.

 

Seven Republican investigations and an FBI investigation over the course of years and no indictments.  Now the Far Right wants to investigate her again.

 

How long with the Radical Right beat that Dead Horse?


Seems Republicans have a serious problem with metaphores.

Lil donny calls 'WITCH HUNT" but the REASON intelligent people say that is THERE ARE NO WITCHES, hence the "hunt" is doomed to failure. Instead of failure, Mueller has gotten grand juries to hand down nearly 40 felony indictments and 6 of donny's top aides are going to JAIL.

 

Now GOPers have been told to try a new slogan "beat a dead horse". Again intelligent people use this to indicate the action in question cannot produce the desired result - the dead horse will not get up. But again reasonable observers must point out to the GOPers the Mueller investigation and numerous other inquiries into the actions of lil donny, his family and his organization (presumably the "dead horse") continue to produce indictments and convictions.

 

If Republicans ask how long someone can "beat a dead horse" they should be answered with another question: How long can you shout: BENGHAZI BENGHAZI BENGHAZI Seems the answer to that question is "as long as they have breath in their bodies." and the fact the entire Benghazi attack took place over 95 minutes will not matter to the dedicated Hillary Hater.


Seems some dems have a problem with the plural form of metaphor.

Maybe if the press had done more reporting on what a sleezeball this guy (Trump) is, maybe we all wouldn't be in this mess now! It's one thing for members of the two major political parties to disagree on issues; but quite another  to have such a slimeball bozo as this guy as our "leader"!

 

How 'bout that FAKE scam "Real Estate" school that Trump was running only a few years ago and now he has to pony up some cash to the people who sued him over this SCAM. That was not 45 years ago, only within the past few years.l Do we want a CROOK for president? I don't myself!

Why? Business actions 45 years ago are unrelated to the job of the President.


 


How does working in the real estate industry relate to the Presidency? The problem is that we are too used to career pols.

trump was a real estate scammer, slimeball, and crook for 45 years.

Now he's a treasonous operative/agent for Putin.

Still think he should be thrown under the jail,,,

A much better question is how long will Trump Cult members continue to bury their heads in the sand, while many key people around the president are indicted and/or convicted of felonies?

**************************************************

Image result for cartoon of trump supporters heads buried in sand

A visual.

The answer:  They'll keep their heads buried in the sand until they either suffocate from their own bull-headness or Trump's policies start to kick them in their own butts.

well, I don't 'bout you, RK, but I don't want a CROOK in the White House either!

To me, that is a pretty basic test.

 

But I guess that doesn't matter to you. Sad!
