Sometimes it only takes six words to make a point. Lalo managed to do just that as he pointed out the irrational, yet oft-used "freedom" message coming from gun zealots.

What about our freedom to minimize the number of massacres?

What about our freedom to live and breathe, "pro-lifers"?

What about the freedom not be gunned down by killers with high capacity magazines and military-style rifles?

What about the freedom to feel safe while hanging out with our friends?

What about the freedom to express an opinion on common sense gun safety and oversight without being viciously attacked?

What about the freedom from gun "enthusiasts" who insist someone is going after their Second Amendment rights when, in fact, nobody is doing that?

La Cucaracha: GOP's "The Barack Obama is Evil Act of 2013"

No matter what President Obama does or says, he will be obstructed and ridiculed by the GOP. He could nominate Jesus for any given post, or suggest a Free Money for All at No Cost to Anyone Act and there would be a huge uproar and a whole lot of smears.

Meantime, Republicans continue to introduce meaningless bills that will go nowhere, concentrating mostly on anti-abortion plans, that are eventually and inanely headed in the very direction that Lalo illustrates so well in his strip today.

Happy Thanksgiving to one and all. We are so grateful to have you as readers and in so many cases, friends.

And we are extra crispy grateful that Lalo so graciously allows us to occasionally run his strip. He's a treasure.

Perfect. Especially considering this:

UPDATE: After MSNBC reported the machine was taken out of service, Mother Jones has this: Romney-Loving Voting Machine "Recalibrated" and Back Online

Problems? Please CALL ELECTION PROTECTION AT 1-866-OUR VOTE or 1-866-VE-Y-VOTA.

Published on Nov 6, 2012 by , who added this on Reddit: EDIT2: I have been contacted by NBC Universal and BBC News.

My wife and I went to the voting booths this morning before work. There were 4 older ladies running the show and 3 voting booths that are similar to a science fair project in how they fold up. They had an oval VOTE logo on top center and a cartridge slot on the left that the volunteers used to start your ballot.

I initially selected Obama but Romney was highlighted. I assumed it was being picky so I deselected Romney and tried Obama again, this time more carefully, and still got Romney. Being a software developer, I immediately went into troubleshoot mode. I first thought the calibration was off and tried selecting Jill Stein to actually highlight Obama. Nope. Jill Stein was selected just fine. Next I deselected her and started at the top of Romney's name and started tapping very closely together to find the 'active areas'. From the top of Romney's button down to the bottom of the black checkbox beside Obama's name was all active for Romney. From the bottom of that same checkbox to the bottom of the Obama button (basically a small white sliver) is what let me choose Obama. Stein's button was fine. All other buttons worked fine.

I asked the voters on either side of me if they had any problems and they reported they did not. I then called over a volunteer to have a look at it. She him hawed for a bit then calmly said "It's nothing to worry about, everything will be OK." and went back to what she was doing. I then recorded this video.

There is a lot of speculation that the footage is edited. I'm not a video guy, but if it's possible to prove whether a video has been altered or not, I will GLADLY provide the raw footage to anyone who is willing to do so. The jumping frames are a result of the shitty camera app on my Android phone, nothing more.
