I’ve been reading your comic (from the beginning) for several weeks now. This is my favourite one, so far.
ok gonna say this again great comic and u double posted half of this comic
The most moving and epic post i’ve seen so far. He was good at motivation, captured him brilliantly. Thumbs UP!
I don’t know, Reagan wasn’t so bad. Sure he was a conservative, and held ideals that I don’t, but unlike the republican party of today, he himself had integrity, and dignity, and didn’t trade that for anything. The reaganites of today need to stop and look at his character, and try to emulate that, instead of using him as a platform in which to hate everything that isn’t conservative. Sorry for the soap box.
You know, I think he’s inspiring in just that way: I was about to write something similar.
Forget party or leaning. I’ll vote for almost anyone that can convince me they aren’t jerking me around. An honest politician who is my polar opposite won’t screw me over as badly as one who shares my ideals but is too interested in that next big check.
The president’s salary is only $400,000 ($569,000 if you count all the extra bits and bobs they get for various expenses).
“That’s still a whole lot!” you say? Ah, but didn’t they just throw out several million (at least) campaigning for the presidency? The job isn’t about money; it’s about power.
Campaign money isn’t exactly coming from their own pockets. Mostly a party of people, who have a certain interest in one person winning will donate the money for campaigning, in exchange for favors.
It’s not like the president is bankrupt due to campaigning.
Wow. Reagan may just have become my favorite president just because of this comic.
Seconded. And I don’t even know anything he did in office.
That’s a fucking terrible statement, and I hope one day, without anyone telling you, you realize why.
You… you realize he may not even be American? Right?
You realise he was probably JOKING, right? :v
I would like to thank the commenters of Shortpacked! for not insisting that American never lost the Vietnam War because “it was an armed conflict, not a war”.
There are people who argue this?
The technicality that, since Congress didn’t actually declare war, it therefore wasn’t one. Not arguing either way, just stating the argument itself.
War or not, we still lost it.
And paid umpteen gazillion dollars for it. Plus interest.
“SHUT UP IT WAS A TIE!”
‘Yeah, we WOOPED ‘dare asses REAL GOOD!’
This one is really amazing. I have nothing more I can possibly say about that. Great job, sir.
Cheese Reagan, that was beautiful
*Maycroft cleans tears from his eyes*
The last panel hit the nail on the head, I think. Everything leading up to it is beautifully inspiring, but the last panel really makes you think.
I like it!
A Woman with SuperSpeed is talking about a Lesbian relationship with a dead president and this is a serious strip.
And now I finally get why I have been compulsively binge-reading this strip on and off for over a week.
Fantastic strip. Truly inspirational.
Reagan critiziced the commies for promoting opression and terror while supporting right wing militias and dictators in Latin America, training them in interrogation, counterinsurgency and terrorism, and selling weapons to Iran as well as moving cocaine to fund some of those efforts.
Also, your mom. A nickel. Hotdog down hallway.
Ironically, this can been seen as “the way things should be” getting too powerful. A world without communism became a higher priority than simply a free world because people started acting like the former implied the latter. When you think about it, that statement really sums up the biggest issue with political partisanship- clinging too strongly to ideals instead of reality warps your perspective on both.
D’awwww. I want a Ronnie for my house. He could sit on my dresser and give me advice.
Y’know, a fictional one. Not the actual scary conservative one.
Okay, maybe I want a talking bunny instead.
With a nail through it’s chest?
I’ve been re-reading the archives for the last few days, and I think this is my fav Shortpacked! comic of them all.
Oh my god, you actually made me like Reagan for a moment there. My hat is off to you dear sir.
I remember when this first happened, I was going through a bit here and there in my life, and this whole plotline made me so happy. Just perfect comic, Willis, just perfect.
Damn that’s inspirational
Ronald Reagan, giving a speech to help a woman recognise her romantic love for another woman. I love this comic.
Also, yes, this is fucking inspiring and thought-provoking.
