Z:  I guess you can understand why BOOMBOX disappeared from the Los Angeles Times, huh?   Maybe your papers, too.

    I love those cartoons.

    By the way what did you think about Trump’s speech last night? It was a great acceptance speech. I can’t say it was the best ever, but it was very good.


  2. John M. Berger says:

    GREAT CARTOONS! And I’m with Bob; the speech was very good. While I don’t know what Trump can do, he , at least, recognizes the problems that we face and continue to get worse.


  3. Kid says:

    Great stuff. And yes, I don’t see anything like that in the media I come across.

    The speech was very good. Recognize the problems and promise to work on them effectively.
    I don’t listen to clinton, but the last time I tripped over something she said was in response to the police killings and it was create some kind of group to study the problem, bla bla bla. Hopefully enough people still have the ability to understand how worthless those kinds of ideas are.


  4. Of course Boombox is a ripoff of Boondocks, a comic about aa couple of black kids moved to a white neighborhood, trying to “keep it real”.
    The cartoon image seems to be lifted from Boondocks and I’ve wondered how boombox gets away with it.
    Almost like one of those meme generators you see on FB.
    Of course Z isn’t on FB or she would have friended me by now…

    I heard about 1/2 of it then got a long distance call and wanted to hear from a friend.

    I thought what I heard was very good……JMB’s right; at LEAST he recognizes the problems.
    Bob, Now what has Trump said about Cruz’s father? I woke up to the terrible news he’s said something hideous again, and his excuse is apparently “I didn’t SAY it, the National Enquire said it, I’m just quoting from it” or something like that?
    I’m afraid to look.

    Kid, the L.A. Times has one VERY VERY anti-Conservative cartoon..sarcastic, etc., and right up near the top on the comics page…..they have one that’s quasi cons. and it’s the second from the bottom under the fold and usually doesn’t deal with politics at all . I believe that just above the liberal Latino-written one “La Cucaracha,” I think is the strip’s name, is Doonesbury…so the left’s well represented laughing at Conservatives. The L.A. Times has started to improve but they know exactly what they’re doing.


  6. geeez2014 says:


    Trump’s awful here, but at least it appears he didn’t say that Cruz’s father thing AGAIN: the media’s just searching for OLD STUFF to pin on him..
    Maybe the speech was better even than we think?
    But the way Trump says things is so thin skinned. Now he’s saying he won’t take Cruz’s endorsement if he offers it. It’s not a fruitcake that you can say “no thanks” to 🙂


  7. FB says:

    LA Times is total garbage anyway.

    BTW I’m boycotting Amazon b/c Bezos owns the WaPo. I won’t be buying on there. Tough to do but I’ll shop on other sites.

    Trump’s speech this morning was a bit lame indeed. Last night was good even though he needs to work on his teleprompter skills. Maybe he can get together with Obama.


  8. Mal says:

    Yeah. Apparently whatever bad thing Trump might say outweighs anything bad Hillary DOES. Go figure!
    There is no truth to the saying “actions speak louder than words.”


  9. geeez2014 says:

    FB, I thought he did very well with the teleprompter…
    What was the speech this morning? I saw clips of something and didn’t know what they were showing; am trying HARD not to get too upset and I’m watching less…
    LA Times is better than it was, but still more leftwing.

    Mal, yes! A friend called last night and she said “Melania says a few of the same words as Michelle in a speech and the media’s outraged, but Hillary’s under investigation for jeopardizing our security and they have hearings and shove the truth under a rug?” Yup.


  10. Imp says:

    OK Munich..it’s your turn to join the club of imported insane mouth breathing neanderthals that merkel gifted you.


  11. FB says:

    And Obama said Trump was too gloomy. That’s the problem with the idiots on the left: totally unable to cope with reality unless it’s based on racism.


  12. Baysider says:

    Great laughs! Needed it this morning. No. 4 is PRICELESS and painful because it’s so true.


  13. Mal says:

    Have you noticed the speech of New Yorker’s all being loud and in your face? I mean, besides Trump, listen to former New York Mayor Guiliani (sp?) or Judge Janeen, et al. They’re all similar; however, add to that, Trump has spent a lot of time on construction sites and as any of us who have been there know the talk is harsh and tough, possibly explaining why it’s normal for him. Folks simply aren’t use to it, esp. mid westerners and southerners, and take him as being crude. One good thing about New Yorker’s………you know what they are thinking because they don’t hold anything back. No PC.


  14. Imp says:

    @Mal…or Jerseyans…take it from me. We taught New Yakkers how to yell!


  15. geeez2014 says:

    Mal and Imp; It’s one thing YELLING, I don’t mind that..it’s the ACCENT 🙂 I SHUDDER when Jeanine and Bill O’Reilly get into that ‘thug voice,’ you know? “SO we godda DOO someting about DIS!” 🙂 Chris Christie’s the worst! I LOVE NEW YORKERS, do NOT get me wrong, but…. 🙂

    I noticed the only trace of that his kids have is when they say “Menhatten” instead of “MANhatten!”

    Imp; just got an email from Stepson in Munich….he’s okay…..he included this in his email to me just now: “Six dead so far, killer still on the loose. Did you hear about the axe attack in a German train close to Würzburg? The war is finally here, I’ve been expecting it for quite some time. We will have a nice time. Thanks to bitch Merkel.”

    FB: EVERY single night the Left’s done ALL it can to find fault in as much as they can. Even that lame “republican” Latina at CNN blames Republicans as if she’s just looking for a job…imagine pitting VAN JONES against CHUBBY LITTLE LATINA who’s not THAT smart? And AXELROD against HER? EVERY Republican they have is so shy and retiring…typical. LIke THE VIEW; no, I don’t watch it, but I have seen it from time to time and it’s hilarious to see the mamby mouthed Republican women they have as hostesses….no WAY they can argue with that awful finger-twitching Beyhar and Whoopi!
    Imagine CNN having ANN COULTER on against AXELROD? Or Laura Ingraham? Or Judge Pirro? Or Monica Crowley (Who is Alan Colmes sis-in-law, imagine THEIR THanksgiving dinners!?)
    CNN can’t DARE bring in Republican heavyweights with brains. NO WAY.
    Yet, FOX (which I’m totally ticked at lately) brings in tough talking Libs….maybe it’s just cuz libs are SO much meaner.


  16. Imp says:

    @Z…happy to hear about the kid…but now they all have to be on guard because this piece of german bratwurst is rotten to the core. Yea…Joisey and New Yak do have that nasal thing down….fuhgeddaboudit.


  17. Sparky says:

    I love Boombox and miss it in the paper. It’s always fun to laugh at ourselves (something libtard’s have trouble with for sure). ~:)


  18. Mal says:

    True, Imp. Jersey, too. Heck. They’re just a tunnel away from NY. Been there, Done that, Got the video!


  19. geeez2014 says:

    Imp; Alex has been on guard since the beginning days of ‘too many Muslims’…he even took martial arts classes when he stayed here 3 years ago…

    Sparky, you know, you have a point; Dems HATE to laugh at themselves, but they sure will laugh at US…………..the good thing for Dems is THEY WILL NEVER INSULT EACH OTHER AS CONSERVATIVES DO. EVER EVER EVER.

    Beamish at AoW’s is making her wonderful blog sound like a VOTE FOR HILLARY BECAUSE REPUBLICANS ARE ASSES blog. again.


  20. “‘humbly and gratefully’ accepts the presidential nomination” Someone PLEASE let Trump know what the word “HUMBLY” means, because he sure has NO CLUE!! I will be voting for him anyway BUT, it WILL be whilst plugging my nose (hard)! Lessor of 2 evils—AGAIN!


  21. The 3rd and 5th are best by far!


  22. geeez2014 says:

    AA….hurrah! You’re back to “AA” again…thanks!
    Yes, I heard ‘humbly’ and I had to laugh, too! Plugging my nose HARD, and taking a SHOWER afterwards!! 🙂 Me, too.


  23. Bob says:

    Z: I think you are overly concerned about political ethics and manners. You said, “Now what has Trump said about Cruz’s father?” I would rather Trump not talk like that, but this is EXACTLY what we need in a Presidential candidate. We somebody, like Hillary, that can make stuff up as they go along, and never admit to being wrong. We have needed somebody tough and nasty for a long time.

    Cruz needs to accept that he is in the wrong game. There are no rules in politics other than keeping out of jail. Used to be that a male politician could only get into trouble by being caught in bed with a live man, or a dead woman. Now, the “live” criteria is not there.


  24. geeez2014 says:

    Bob, don’t get me wrong…I am NOT a Cruz fan, particularly now that he did what he’s done….the latest article on him says he’s ready for four years from now. IMAGINE the cheek not to realize what you’ve done?

    For Trump to quote the Nat’l Enquirer, and throw in something about it being a respected magazine, is a bit too much for me, Bob…….we need VERY tough and we need truthful, I don’t know why nasty is needed??


  25. Mal says:

    Some of the other countries are saying they don’t like Trump…………which is exactly why I DO!


  26. Kid says:

    Mal, the more socialist self-destructive, citizen abusing countries that say they don’t like Trump, his ratings go up several notches for me.


  27. Mal says:

    I welcome the company, Kid! ;o)


  28. geeez2014 says:

    and now Trump’s saying he’ll take millions to destroy Cruz and Kasich’s careers when they run for sen. and gov. again because they snubbed him at the convention.

    Imagine trying to talk anybody but a dyed in the wool Republican to vote for THIS type of man?
    I LIKE TOUGH, I LIKE RIGHTEOUS….this type of talk is BAD for the party , bad for the country….this makes it SOO much harder for nice, good people to vote for a guy like that. Darn!!!
