For the most part I appreciate the Dr. Footsie cartoons, subject matter and presentation, but I think VNS should get away from the toilet humor. There are too many other ways your cartoonist to stay on the ‘edge’ of major issues without resorting to ‘fecal funnies.’

Not yet sworn in, Virginia’s new governor has solemnly declared the big myth in education. Some would call it the Big Lie. Cynics would call it the big joke.
Try to find students who have memorized anything at all. This is not easy to do. As American test scores remain mediocre in international tests, we are being kicked around by foreign students who know something we don’t: facts.
According to McAuliffe’s view, children in American public schools are effectively chained to their desks and whipped until they know such useless trivia as, well, anything.
This view, which happens to be the official view of the far-left Education Establishment, is detached from reality. Just watch Jay Leno looking for someone who knows where the pilgrims came from, when the Civil War occurred, etc. Leno, whose program is produced in Hollywood on our West Coast, asked a woman what body of water lies to the west of California. She couldn’t recall. College teachers are reporting that freshmen show up in their classes not knowing what six-times-seven is.According to HuffingtonPost: “37% of Americans unable to locate America on map of America.”
Here is a simple question everyone is avoiding but the answer is obvious: How stupid are the American people?
On October 30, 2008 Barack Obama said, "We are five days from fundamentally transforming the United States of America." And so the stupidest people in the world (oops! I gave away the answer) voted for a man who said he was effectively going to throw away the United States of America and replace it with......what? He didn't say. Well, how stupid is that? Think about it. On July four, 1776 the Representatives of the United States of America declared the intentions of the people to fundamentally transform the British Colonies in North America.

So this lone jihadist begins to run his mouth about sacrificing himself for his allotment of 40 virgins. The story indicates that somebody called the FBI. See: http://www.jihadwatch.org/2013/12/kansas-muslim-arrested-planned-jihad-martyrdom-suicide-attack-at-mid-continental-airport.html
The story doesn't say where he got his explosives or who helped him in his jihad. It can't be that his buddies at his local mosque are involved in some way? No, absolutely not! No way! Forget that I even mentioned it at all. What was I thinking? "Islam is the religion of peace." George W. Bush said it and I believe it! :-(

As America stands upon a great and dangerous precipice, millions of Americans involve themselves battling against an ever emerging Tyranny.
We skirmish on so many fronts that even though our numbers are legion, our efforts are minimized in their effectiveness by the nature of the division intentionally created by those who wage war against our liberty.
As I have prayed for our great nation I believe God has shown me a ‘silver bullet’ by which We the People can and must reclaim control over EVERY renegade and corrupt President, Congressman, Senator, State Delegate, Judge, Sheriff, etc..
In fact, this concept will affect every Constitutional office holder and restore said Constitution to its rightful place as Supreme Law of the Land.
