Teddy Roosevelt vs Death by CuwazyJeztur Teddy Roosevelt vs Death by CuwazyJeztur
Something really quick that I made. It was taken off a quote by Thomas R. Marshall saying, " Death had to take (Roosevelt) in his sleep, for if he was awake, their'd have been a fight".

What do we say to the god of death? "Not today".
What did Teddy Roosevelt say to the god of death? "Bring it, you weak scythe-carrying nancyboy! BULLY!"

   I'll just :+fav: this.  Short little gag strips like this are too rare to pass up.

   That being said, Theodore Roosevelt is something of an iconic character for me.  The only things that I was aware of about him was that he was a military man in the Spanish-American War of 1898 that launched the United States into international power politics (we were mostly occupied with action within the western hemisphere up to that time), and his quote "Speak softly, but carry a big stick."  The quintessential American of his day.

   However controversial he has become (conservative commentator Glenn Beck aligns him with the socialist "progressive" movement as the originator of what he considers anti-Constitutional innovations he assigns to the left over here), I could still want to read up on any biography of the man just to see what sort of person he was.  It seems to me that there was more to admire in him than there was in his cousin Franklin, however great the conflicts of their respective days were.  For me, the past is history that you learn from in order not to repeat some of its more unsavory acts, not a sledgehammer you use to beat your political and ideological opponents over their heads with (the "Arguing with Idiots" method).

   Well done, sir.

Yeah, Roosevelt was iconic, read up on him a lil, you'll find some interesting and inspiring facts about him. Don't believe everything when people like Glenn Beck use past presidents to get their own points across.

   I think I will be reading about this man.  As for Beck, I may find myself agreeing with a few things that he says about certain people in positions of leadership, but most of his messages on his radio programs scare the shit out of me, and at other times he's coming across as being a little too ambiguous and sarcastic.  And I'm a guy who considers himself to be "right of center" on most things.

Death: "Now come on Mr. Roosevelt, please? I'll even put away the scythe."
Roosevelt: "Nope. Over my dead body."
Death: "but, but, but...Aw dammit!!!! fine we'll try again tomorrow night."

Funny stuff.
