Senior Health Care Solution According to Maxine So you’re a senior citizen and the government says no health care for you, what do you do? Our plan gives anyone 65 years or older a gun and 4 bullets.  You are allowed to shoot 2 senators and 2 representatives.  Of Course, this means you will be […]

After looking at the “humor” section of the archives and finding this post, a reader emailed to reminisce about a very funny Dave Barry column from the 1990s that made fun of bureaucratic stupidity. After a bit of digging, I found a link. Here’s my favorite part of the column, but I encourge you to […]

Click on the box and the image will appear. And if any wordpress experts want to give me advice on getting pictuers to show up without this extra step, let me know. I am completely baffled (my collectivist friends will say that’s a common occurence) why pictures embed properly only 50 percent of the time.

Perfect for next year’s State-of-the-Union address…or just about any other political speech. Not sure why I can’t get the picture to show up (at least on my computer), but you’ll see it if you click on the box. Amusing.

This is supposedly an actual letter to the government. I’m skeptical, but it is rather amusing because it could be true. Dear Sirs, I’m in the process of renewing my passport, and still cannot believe this.  How is it that Radio Shack has my address and telephone number and knows that I bought a TV […]

The English are feeling the pinch in relation to recent terrorist threats and have raised their security level from “Miffed” to “Peeved.” Soon, though, security levels may be raised yet again to “Irritated” or even “A  Bit Cross.” The English have not been “A Bit Cross” since the blitz in 1940 when tea supplies all […]

To be sure, this message also should be delivered to both Bush I and Bush II, Carter, Nixon, LBJ, and 90 percent of House and Senate members.

I don’t have any strong feelings about Obama’s Nobel Prize, though it obviously was an exercise in political correctness by a bunch of pretentious judges who gave the same prize to Arafat, but I did get a chuckle out of this sign. And I definitely don’t subscribe to the sentiments in this photo, but I […]

Having been exposed for engaging in a pervasive pattern of scientific fraud, this his has not been a good couple of days from the global warming alarmists. So this is a perfect time to add some insult to their injury, and a group of Minnesotans (I think that’s what they’re called?) have put together a […]

I don’t know which is scariest. Probably Biden. Maybe Frank.

A cowboy named Bud was overseeing his herd in a remote mountainous pasture in Nevada when suddenly a brand-new BMW advanced toward him out of a cloud of dust. The driver, a man in a Brioni suit, Gucci shoes, RayBan sunglasses and YSL tie, leaned out the window and asked the cowboy, “If I tell […]

This is another one of those a-picture-tells-a-thousand-words images. Reminds me of the old line about Democrats must like poor people because their policies create more of them.

To be fair, this applies to almost all politicians – Republicrats and Demoblicans.

Got this in an email from a Republican pal. No comment is necessary, but I will briefly note that I am not a fan of Bush (I never voted for him, and I’m glad I didn’t). Nonetheless, this is clever.

Time for some political humor. Though some may consider this tragedy rather than comedy since the theme will be the potential contest between Donald Trump and Elizabeth Warren in 2020. But some people are happy about the possible match-up. For instance, both likely candidates are a gold mine for satirists. We’ll start with Elizabeth “Soul […]

In my collection of libertarian humor, my favorite item is probably the video mocking us for reflexive anti-statism. It presumably was put together by a statist, but I’ll be the first to admit that it’s very clever satire. Though if you prefer favorable humor, I very much enjoy Libertarian Jesus (featured here and here) because […]

In this interview with Dana Loesch, I make several points about the Trump budget, including the need to reform means-tested entitlements and Obamacare (with a caveat from my Second Theorem of government), as well as some comments on foreign aid and fake budget cuts. But those are arguments that I make all the time. Today, […]

Back in March, I wrote a 50-day assessment on Trump’s presidency. I listed six questions and mostly concluded that there wasn’t enough information to give accurate answers. In other words, if Trump was a student, he would have received an “I” for incomplete. Now that we’re at the 100-day point, I’m tempted to say that […]

Donald Trump should be an easy target for political humorists, but I’ve mostly been disappointed in the quality of the anti-Trump satire. That may be because comedians think he’s a raging conservative, so their jokes based on that theme strike someone like me (who fears Trump is a big-government populist) as senseless. After all, clever […]

Back in 2010, I shared a cartoon video making a very important point that there’s a big downside when class-warfare politicians abuse and mistreat highly productive taxpayers. Simply stated, the geese with the golden eggs may fly away. And this isn’t just theory. As revealed by IRS data, taxpayer will move across borders to escape […]

One interesting feature of this election is that many voters, grappling with the unpalatable choice of Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, are dealing with the feelings of dismay and despair that libertarians experience almost every election. All I can say is, “welcome to my world.” Though I admit our experiences aren’t the same. Ordinary voters […]

Mocking Europeans

Here’s my collection of European political humor (some of it involving – GASP! – stereotypes): A cartoon involving Greece. This terrorism-alert humor from the U.K. The French get mocked in this cartoon. At the bottom of this post, Americans get the short end of the stick when compared to Europe. Some very funny maps showing […]

It’s difficult to be a libertarian. Politicians and bureaucrats do so many foolish things that you can spending your entire day being outraged. But that’s probably not healthy, so it’s good to keep things in perspective with some political humor. Even if libertarians are the ones being mocked, and that’s the case for my most-viewed […]

Does Donald Trump have a consistent and coherent set of economic policies? He sometimes says things indicating that he understands Washington is a cesspool of waste. But on other occasions, he seems to be singing off the same song sheet as Bernie Sanders. Which is why, when I recently tried to dissect Trumponomics, I admitted […]

Almost everyone in Washington is talking about last night’s GOP debate. I sent out a few tweets as I watched, and my main after-the-fact observation is that there was very little discussion about the ever-growing burden of government spending, which is America’s most pressing economic problem. But I’m a contrarian, so while everyone else is […]

I’ve had several reporters ask me to comment on the philosophical and policy differences between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders. I’m always happy to oblige, yet I don’t think any of them have included my comments in their stories because I always give what seems to be a very unsatisfactory response.  My standard line is […]

It’s amazingly simple to reduce the burden of government spending. Policy makers simply need to impose some modest spending restraint so that government doesn’t grow faster than the economy’s productive sector. In a display of humility that can only be found in Washington, DC, I call this Mitchell’s Golden Rule. And, amazingly, even the International […]

Looking through my archives, Hillary Clinton rarely has been the target of political humor. I did share a quiz last year that definitely had a snarky tone, but the main goal was to expose her extremist views. Similarly, I mocked both her and her husband that same year for plotting to minimize their tax burden, […]

There’s a lot of navel-gazing analysis in Washington about whether to expect some sort of bipartisanship over the next two years. I find such discussions very irritating because they assume that you automatically get good results when Republicans and Democrats both agree on a policy. My reaction, to put it mildly, is “these people are […]
