Ramblings for Wednesday, Nov 24

I spend a lot of time researching stories on the internet (in other words, just poking around), staying abreast on the news and starting and abandoning cartoons I have the good sense never to post on the cartoon web site. I'm amazed by both the richness of the material to be had and the fact that so few cartoonists cover the same ground I'm happy to tread. If faith-the purpose and motivation of most of human life-is mentioned at all, you can bet hands down it will be in a disparaging if not outright bigoted manner. This is why the cartoon site grows steadily in popularity and support. It's not outrageous for a cartoon to be centered around faith in God, in fact, faithmouse occupies the great American middle ground. However, I'm resigned to have the cartoon categorized by some as a sort of crazed though obscure icon of the vast right wing conspiracy, seeing that the word of mouth of my outrageousness (huh?) contributes to raised page rankings and helps to bring new fans to the site. As a cartoon still searching for print distribution, faithmouse can use all the friends it can get.

Ramblings for Tuesday, Nov 23

The unfinished 'email' cartoon from last week has been posted as today's toon. Mentioned are two good friends of faithmouse-Stacy Harp of E-Involved, and Joshua O of Hello Infidels. If they serve you lemons....

Maximilian Kolbe, blogsaint

Greatly in arrears am I in postings for this blog, therefore I request Saint Maximilian Kolbe to be protector of this cyber realm during any extended future absence. I don't believe he'll mind the job; after all, Maximilian was sent to Auschwitz as a result of both his media savy and extreme political incorrectness.

I trust former prisoner 16670 will perform his duties admirably.

Judge StarMole wins one for George Bush

Although I shall always wear the shame of miscalculating Minnesota for Bush2004 (alongside the good company of Powerline and Karl Rove) I'm willing to put forth the premise that, without the help of of Judge StarMole, John Kerry would currently be President elect.
On February 4th of this year, Chief Justice Margaret H. Marshall and three other judges of the state's Supreme Judicial Court put forth an earthshaking ruling which contained this statement-

"For no rational reason the marriage laws of the Commonwealth discriminate against a defined class; no amount of tinkering with language will eradicate that stain."

Last spring, our fearful Minnesota liberal Borg prevented a definition of Marriage amendment from going before the voters. Democratic lawmakers knew that such an amendment would act like a magnet to draw Christian voters regardless of party affiliation to the polls. If their efforts to limit free speech had been unsuccessful, Minnesota might today be the 12th state to resounding add an amendment to it's State constitution defining marriage as being between one man and one woman.
Without the issue of Gay marriage, George Bush might not have been able to solidify and expand upon his base. The wreath of morality might have been more easily worn by John Kerry, preaching a deceptive message of anti-war against the enemies of our own nation and a war against poverty and the creators of wealth here in our own.

Curt shilling

Yes, it's true. After years of selfless altruism the faithmouse site will soon be engaged in curt shilling; I may even post a link to the new haberdashery on this blog as well. The first faithmouse book (an anthology of 2004 cartoons) is also in the works. I've even discovered that this blog is newly listed as a share on a fantasy blogsharing site. The current value of the share is $0, but, if my financial instincts prove correct the price is likely to double before year's end. My advice-get in on the ground floor now, a task best accomplished through a window.
What has doubled over the course of the past two months are visitors to the cartoon site. This is delightful news, however, jpeg and gifs images are far more expensive to display in mass quantities than piddling buckets of text, therefore because I fancy myself clever I am inventing a way to pay for the ever increasing bandwidth. Hence, a store. My product comes highly recommended by me; it's clean and positive, it fights a good fight in a way I hope is entertaining to those outside of it's base demographic (which is anything but base.)
