Rick, you need to do some

Rick, you need to do some research before you do your artwork. Pineapple grenades are not used anymore. And stop drawing terrorists with a big nose! I find it anti-semitic!

The nose has to balance out

The nose has to balance out the ears.....wouldn't look right with a tiny nose.

Rick you should have had Michael Steele somewhere in this metaphor.

Great, implying all Muslims

Great, implying all Muslims are terrorists. Not some of your better work, Rick. At least be honest. The NASA tie in is humorous though.

Jake, this photo only applies

Jake, this photo only applies to big-nosed Muslims living in caves using obsolete pineapple grenades, not to non-terrorist Muslims.
Oh wait, it's not a photo, it's a cartoon.

A cartoon?!?! Wow, what a

A cartoon?!?! Wow, what a concept. Using exaggerated satire to make a point. Brilliant!!
One should be careful, though. Many can be tricked by this style of commentary.

And Rick since it's not a

And Rick since it's not a photo but a cartoon, that's probably why you get 2nd and 3rd place STATE awards. Keep up the great cartoons, here's hoping you place first in any category next year.

It is sometimes surreal that

It is sometimes surreal that this administration continues to do things that are so against what most people feel is normal. Like waking up from a really bad dream and finding out that it wasn't a dream after all, but reality. I am old enough to remember when President Kennedy told all Americans that NASA would put a man on the moon in our lifetime, and how proud that made us feel. How proud we were to be Americans then. Now all I feel is profound sadness as this once proud, most advanced and elite of all American agencies is now reduced to nothing more than than an arm of uncle's public relations machine, working as hard as they can to now make muslims feel better about themselves? I am sickened daily by the continued trashing of our nation, which has now become a global laughingstock, by the antics of this out of control administration, led by a clown who is hell-bent on destroying most things that all Americans cherish the most. The DOJ is already beyond hope and totally corrupt. The NLRB is totally in union control, and there are more. The most recent is NASA, but this clown is far from finished. Our only hope is to neuter him at the polls in November. I only hope it's not too late.

I hope mass disillusionment

I hope mass disillusionment has taken over. However, there are still some who believe that the current administration is going to upgrade their Cadillac and pass out free coupons for Caviar, since food stamps have already afforded them every other fine food that food stamps can purchase.

Equating all of the Muslim
Unpublished

Equating all of the Muslim world with terrorists is just bigotry.

Grouse and Jake, this isn't a

Grouse and Jake, this isn't a drawing of a mosque but rather its a drawing of a cave with two terrorists hiding out in it. Most people can easily spot the difference and its meaning.

Who equated all Muslims with

Who equated all Muslims with terrorism? I didn't see that anywhere in the cartoon....I saw TWO people in the cartoon. Sounds like you are jumping to conclusions......or are you denying that ANY Muslims are terrorists? In the name of political correctness, can we no longer satirize those who are?

How does a cartoon of two

How does a cartoon of two imply that all Muslims are terrorists? We do know that reportedly some actual terrorists were/are living in caves.

I concur, Miss Hap.

Hey Rick, we've pretty much

Hey Rick, we've pretty much used up this cartoon and are ready for a new one.
We're all getting a little antsy and I wanted to give you a boost to get out a new toon for us to play with. Hint hint hint.
