Honoring endangered species, part 7

Honoring endangered species, part 7

Marty’s photo of the day #2408: This week marks the 44th Anniversary of the signing of the Endangered Species Act. Since today’s Republicans would rather worship money than do something for the greater good, it’s possible that this might be the last anniversary of the ESA. With that in mind, this week I’m featuring photos […]

Honoring endangered species, part 1

Marty’s photo of the day #2402. This week marks the 44th Anniversary of the signing of the Endangered Species Act. Since today’s Republicans despise anything that has to do with conservation—they prefer to worship money—it’s possible that this might be the last anniversary of the ESA. With that in mind, this week I’m featuring photos […]

Will they be migrating to oil wells?

Will they be migrating to oil wells?

Marty’s photo of the day #2401: I took this photo in the Yukon Territory. This is a small section of the Porcupine caribou migration. Traveling more than 700 miles between Canada and the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, in Alaska, it is the longest terrestrial migration on Earth. Of course now that the sinister Republican tax […]

I resolve not to spit in the face . . .

I resolve not to spit in the face . . .

Marty’s photo of the day #2394: The Republican-led Senate just passed their tax bill, which is a giveaway to the rich (Jesus’s favorite people) and opens up the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to oil drilling (because Jesus thinks wilderness looks better covered with oil spills). Consequently, here is my New Year’s Resolution: I resolve not […]

Grope and Vote for Roy Moore!

Grope and Vote for Roy Moore!

As Martyman fans know, our hero loves to dress up for the holidays. In fact, just a few minutes ago, Martyman walked into my office and asked if I would take his picture, so he could include it in the thousands of Christmas cards he was mailing out. I was just about to click the […]

Metaphorically circling the GOP

Metaphorically circling the GOP

Marty’s photo of the day #2386: Readers of my by second book, “Endangered Edens: Exploring the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, Costa Rica, the Everglades, and Puerto Rico,” will recognize this black vulture photo. Just think, eleven months from now millions of these will be metaphorically circling the Republican Party.

It’s okay to talk politics on Thanksgiving Day

It’s okay to talk politics on Thanksgiving Day

Marty’s photo of the day #2375: I had this great caption in mind for a turkey photo I had taken several years ago. Of course, with all the photos on my hard drive, finding a specific photo isn’t always easy. Then I came across this moose photo I took several years ago. I’m thankful for […]

Caribou in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge

Caribou in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge

Marty’s photo of the day #2370: These caribou are in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge—the most pristine and remote region in the United States. In the coming weeks, greedy Republicans will likely open up parts of this refuge to oil drilling. “Praise, Jesus!” they will say, as they rape the land for oil company profits […]

National jewel soon to be poisoned

National jewel soon to be poisoned

Marty’s photo of the day #2369: This is the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge—the most pristine and remote region in the United States. In the coming weeks, greedy Republicans will likely open up parts of this refuge to oil drilling. “Praise, Jesus!” they will say, as they rape the land for oil company profits and political […]

In honor of the ass-kicking. . . .

Marty’s photo of the day #2360: Last night’s election provided the best political news in, well . . . more that a year. So in honor of the Republicans getting their ass kicked last night, I went in search of a happy political photo on my hard drive. This photo, from 2006, shows me with […]

The melty glacier, with text for Republicans

The melty glacier, with text for Republicans

Marty’s photo of the day #2346: This is the Bear Glacier in British Columbia. The lake at the toe of the glacier is Strohn Lake, which didn’t exist until the 1940s. I took this picture in 2002, and I’m shocked by the recent pictures of the melting glacier visitors have posted on the Internet. It’s […]

Making the legacy of Idi Amin Dada look better every day!

Making the legacy of Idi Amin Dada look better every day!

Alabama Republican Senate nominee Roy Moore says that the Supreme Court ruling allowing gay marriage is worse than the court’s 1857 decision that upheld slavery, because it forces “people to recognize marriage other than the institution ordained of God.” Actually, an infinitely worse ruling would be any that forces the rest of us to recognize […]

Here’s mud in your eye!

Here’s mud in your eye!

Marty’s photo of the day #2338: I tried to come up with some clever parallel between this elephant and the Republican Party, but I’m not thinking creatively yet this morning. So instead, I’ll go with the obvious: Here’s mud in your eye! (Photographed in Zimbabwe)

The Republican Party in a nutshell

The Republican Party in a nutshell

The Republican Party is a cult that preys on gullible people and gets them to vote against themselves. That’s why America doesn’t have universal health care, and why so many Republicans still believe that global warming is a hoax. Republican leaders built their cult by pretending to be good Christians and getting the far-right Christian […]

Global warming deniers don’t want you to know this

Global warming deniers don’t want you to know this

Marty’s photo of the day #2332: When I speak at colleges, this is one of the photos I use when discussing global warming. Disingenuous Republican global warming deniers use the ice cube example to “prove” that the melting ice caps won’t raise sea levels. In that example, you fill a glass full of water and […]

American gun death resurrections

American gun death resurrections

Soon Republicans and the NRA will agree to make it a bit harder to acquire bump stocks. Then they’ll puff out their chests, tell us all how much they care, and go on offering prayers for the victims of the next slaughter—and the next. If prayers were effective against America’s gun death epidemic, victims would […]
