I look forward to seeing the perfect storm of wank calm and rational debate that will ensue in the comments, between competing factions of both superhero comics fans and public policy ideologues.

Superman supports health care and welfare!



From back in the day when Superman used his moral force to say we should do this because it's the right thing to do for our neighbors, never mind if it cost us some tax dollars.

Of course, today he'd be attacked for his position because, after all, he's an illegal immigrant.

And like so many other illegals, we just want him to clean up our messes and do the jobs we can't do for ourselves for non-existent pay, but that doesn't mean we have to acknowledge when he might have a point.

But I could be mistaken. Is there someone out there who can explain why Superman is wrong?

(Hat tip to Kevin H and Wesley Osam.)

As our favourite jewish carpenter said: "He who lives by the sword, dies by the sword." The same roman armies that built the empire was what brought it down, the barbarians just picked up the scraps that were left.

Except that the Western Roman Empire did implode and the Eastern Roman Empire survived until 1922, yeah. And given that the Islamic Janissaries were worthy heirs of the Pagan Legions in full....what goes around does end up coming around.
