I had someone put my cartoon idea to print. We need more political cartoons these days to drive points home.

This Week Host George Stephanoplous later asked White House press secretary Josh Earnest to respond to Pence's claim: 'Josh, you just heard the governor say right there this is the same law, he says, that Barack Obama voted for as a state senator back in Illinois.'
Earnest didn't dispute the Indiana governor's statement. 'Look, if you have to go back two decades to try to justify something that you're doing today, it may raise some question about the wisdom of what you're doing,' Earnest said." - Oh Dear, the Liberal Hysteria over Indiana's Religious Freedom Act Has Begun - TownHall.com - March 30, 2015
"Less than 3 percent of the U.S. population identify themselves as gay, lesbian or bisexual, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported Tuesday in the first large-scale government survey measuring Americans’ sexual orientation.
The National Health Interview Survey, which is the government’s premier tool for annually assessing Americans’ health and behaviors, found that 1.6 percent of adults self-identify as gay or lesbian, and 0.7 percent consider themselves bisexual. The overwhelming majority of adults, 96.6 percent, labeled themselves as straight in the 2013 survey." - Health Survey Gives Its First Large Scale Data On Gay Bisexual Population - The Washington Post - July 15, 2014
"Ah, this is tired. Barack Obama voted for the same type of legislation as a STATE SENATOR. Bill Clinton signed similar legislation into law as POTUS. Tim Cook is playing loose with the facts. Perhaps doesn't even know the law passed - just playing by the stereotypical fashion being peddled. Democrats are not honest. They lie often. This is not an endorsement of the law, just know full well the reaction provided by Mr. Cook is demonstrably over the top political slant. Not helping anyone."

This is the sick moment Islamic State butchers pushed a man off the top of a building - because they believed he was gay. The blind-folded man was held at the top of the tall block in Raqqa, Syria, while his captors took pictures of his final moments on mobile phones. - ISIS: Twisted Militants Throw Gay Man Off of Building - U.K. Daily Mail March 4, 2015

"In a display of colossal disrespect for his $111,000-a-year maintenance planner position at the Public Utilities Commission, an adult man frequently urinated in a reservoir that is a source of drinking water for 2.5 million customers in the Bay Area. The Chronicle has word that the culprit named Martin Sanchez will likely be suspended without pay for five days as a result of the behavior that he was called out for in anonymous complaints" - SF Water Manager Peed In Reservoir At Work And Won't Be Fired - SF Examiner - February 9, 2015The city government of San Francisco completely failed to run an adequate marketing campaign to get its residents to curb their water usage. Why? Likely so it could implement its preferred plan to cause major construction projects to extract water from newly built polluted groundwater wells in the city. Yet the problem still remains because this response is really just a temporary band aid since groundwater will eventually run out.
California is still in the throes of an epic drought. But Bay Area water users are running taps, using hoses and watering gardens as usual, prompting warnings that The City is edging closer to mandatory water rationing in the coming months. Water use by Bay Area homes and businesses is at or above normal levels this year despite the ongoing dry spell and pleas from officials to conserve water, according to San Francisco Public Utilities Commission records. Water Use Continues As Normal Despite California Drought - SF Examiner - May 19, 2014It's duly noted there's no choice in the city's 311 App to address water abuse complaints. The government's visionless and so willing to pollute the drinking water rather than implement water conservation and long term solutions. For instance, there was a profound lack of vision to ignore repairing the Hetch Hetchy water tunnel that's on the verge of catastrophic collapse.
Mountain Tunnel, a key part of the Hetch Hetchy water system - which supplies 2.6 million Bay Area residences and businesses - is at risk of a "catastrophic collapse" and will cost more than $100 million to repair or up to $630 million to replace, according to the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission. City officials have known for 25 years that significant work is needed on the 19-mile-long tunnel just outside Yosemite National Park in a steep, hard-to-access wilderness area. They considered making it part of the PUC's decade-old, $4.6 billion water system improvement program, which is now more than 80 percent complete. But ultimately, the 89-year-old connector was left out of the rebuild, which focused on upgrading Bay Area water facilities that could fail in an earthquake. - Hetch Hetchy Water Tunnel in Danger of 'Catastrophic Collapse' - SFGate August, 2014
