A FLOPSIDE COMIC edited by Mr. SHit…. who is terrible at editing but at 65 has the extreme enthusiasm of a 20 year old….
Mr. FUck and Mr. ShIt are so bitchin’ man… they like to hang out and have fun..
NOt a FLipside COmic Mr. SHit but a FLOPSIDE COMIC>>>>>>
Old Man Joe was recorded in our bomb shelter…. he was so happy to read for us at FLOPSIDE COmics... he usually is the silent one of integrity, wicked smarts and cantankerous ways…
As he said,
“From one old fool to some others…”
Sadly, they have lost their dignity and grace.
McConnell appears to freeze while speaking with reporters in Kentucky.
Feinstein’s fall was described as a minor slip and did not involve steps or stairs.
We at FLOPSIDE Comics must make this editorial. We have talked to Hudley, and she agrees.
She has worked at nursing homes and as a Home Health Aide.
We all hold great respect for the ageing.
Yet there is a time when one needs to take off the sheath of power to let others who are more apparently resilient and healthier take their place.
As a California Senator and as the minority Senate leader.
Democrats and Republicans can agree to something as profoundly real as this. We like the fact that when an issue crosses the line, reaching across the Aisle of politics, and both parties have a common issue to deal with, this real issue of poor health and age.
It is a reality we all face if we live long enough. They are not Queens or Kings but elected to serve their time with dignity and grace.
Yet now is the time, for both of them, to step down with dignity and grace.
This song is dedicated to Mr. SHit’s extreme enthusiasm…
Venus’ 40 days and nights in the wilderness between July 22-September 3rd.
“But when women succeed in maintaining themselves against the animus, instead of allowing themselves to be devoured by it, then it ceases to be only a danger and becomes a creative power. We women need this power, for, strange as it seems, only when this masculine entity becomes an integrated part of the soul and carried on its proper function, and, at the same time, also being herself, to fulfill her individual human destiny.”
Pg. 42 Animus and Anima; Two Essays by Emma Jung.
At the time creating this, I was going through a very dark experience and so this is my mythological and mysterious visit “to the great below.”
A documentation creatively. Extremely hard to do. Thanks to Inanna. Her service in sharing with me “Kurgarra, the food of life, and Galatur the water of life.”
I came back up into life. A good life indeed!
From Winter to Spring (Summer) real change happens. The death of Winter and the rebirth of Spring. We now symbolically descend to the underworld as we approach winter. As Venus’ 40 days and nights in the wilderness between July 22-September 3rd.
Yet anytime where the dark pulls you down…. Symbolically and esoterically the resurrection of Christ Jesus after three days in the underworld, the release of Prometheus by Chiron, and the release of Persephone from the underworld are all the promises of Spring to come. As change and growth are availed.
Persephone spends 6 months with Pluto away from her mother Demeter. Another ancient or popular story is the one of Inanna the Goddess of love, Queen of Heaven, and Earth.
The story holds the feminine trinity. It is a cuneiform Sumer texts about three thousand years old.
The characters of this story are Inanna Goddess of love, Queen of Heaven, and Earth, Ereshkigal~ Queen of the Underworld, and Lilith ~ the dark rebel adolescent of Inanna.
The feminine trinity. In the Inanna story we also find a similar part as with Persephone’s story where Inanna’s king Dumuzi as the shepherd king of Uruk spends 6 months in the underground.
“His heart was filled with tears, the shepherd’s heart was filled with tears, Dumuzi’s heart was filled with tears.”
The wisdom god Enki helps Inanna from the underground.

LILITHDark Rebel and Adolescent of Inanna
“The powerful Lilith of Inanna’s adolescent days had to be sent away so Inanna’s life exploring talents could be developed. But now that Inanna has become queen of her city, wife to her beloved, mother of her children, she is more able to face what she has neglected and feared: the instinctual wounded, frightened parts of herself. She now hears, and capable of responding to, the labor call of Ereshkigal.”

“As we know, for women, it is the animus above all who persuades us to be an Everyman, to care for the collective and ignore the individual. Here we see the vital importance of the true sulphur, when the alchemists even describe as “the begetter of every flower and blossom on herb and tree” and finally as the “painter of all colors”; in other words, of Eros which drives our and replaces the opinions of the animus. That is, Eros leads women back from animus’s poor imitation and distortion of man’s principal Logos to her own principle of relatedness.”

It is great to look back at this post. The watercolors are on 8 1/2 by 11-inch watercolor paper. Praying Mantis is an anthropomorphism often found in all my art.
I don’t think Government is necessarily bad or completely corrupted. We elect people to represent us. The powers that move around our leaders can be very strange. Leadership is part of our human experience.
We at Flopside Comics have found two leaders that we want to support. One is a journalist that is not the enemy of the people, holds integrity and has vast journalistic experience. Another is an honest woman of leadership, the first African-American woman to run for Governor in the state of Georgia.
Bob Woodward and Stacy Abrams.
Bob went to Yale College but instead of becoming a lawyer he became involved in investigative journalism. “While a young reporter for The Washington Post in 1972, Woodward teamed up with Carl Bernstein; the two did much of the original news reporting on the Watergate scandal.”
Stacy Abrams served on the Georgia General Assembly, 2007–2017 before this in 1999, she earned her Juris Doctor from Yale Law School. A business woman.
What inspires us is their shared support of diversity and how they use their knowledge and education to help us, “We the People.” They are, right this very minute, confronting corruption. Two individuals, a journalist and a politician, that seem to care.
Our humble character watercolor renderings of Bob and Stacy, with badges on the side. (out soon!!)
The name Diotima means one who honors or is honored by Zeus, and her descriptor as “Mantinikê” (Mantinean) seems designed to draw attention to the word “mantis”, which suggests an association with prophecy.
“The Philosophy of Love”
“Then at last man will behold beauty with the eye of the mind and will be able to bring forth not mere images of what is good for man but realities… Would that be an ignoble life Socrates?”
As crazy Californians… we at Flopside Comics think Jerusalem seems so far away… Israel, Tel Aviv a long-time historic peace process is overwhelming !! Also the U.N.R.W. A.…. United Nations Relief and Works Agency seems like a good commitment to help all nations.
“How Jared Kushner could in one day cut help and relief to the U.N.R.W. A. program is so cruel, ” said Mr. Dang.
“It seems the prejudice he shows against the Palestinians is clear,” rumpled Pee Wee Gutter.
“I really think we need to support more and control less. I remind you that Jared Kushner’s father paid 2 million dollars for Jared’s enrollment at Harvard. Jared is a donkey’s behind., with no integrity, like his father-in-law. A cruel, uncaring person without a conscience.” Yelled Mr. Crap.
