Hmm, Tona must be having difficulty with the values gap between the jingoism-heavy version of patriotism she's used to and the conscientious-objector, humanist version she's trying to exercise by not joining Trump's brute squad.

Meanwhile, I'm still waiting for the combover to drop. Tona's said no, and Trump is letting this stand?

...or maybe she just despises Trump. And yeah, the chapter's not over.

That's a horrifying notion to follow:
"Well, if it were another President I'd do it in a heartbeat. I'd totally join up, kick down doors, blow shit up, kidnap and execute people in the middle of the night, and visit hell on Earth on just the President's say so. I don't care about due process, it doesn't matter that stuff is unconstitutional or human rights violating. But I won't do it for Trump."

She did swear The United States Armed Forces Oath of Enlistment and/or The United States Uniformed Services Oath of Office, yes?

That comes under the heading of "Top One Thing I never Wanted To Hear My Mother Say'

Tona might be outraged, but this isn't the first time Maureen's said stuff like this.

Y'know, the "Best Mom" award gets thrown around a lot, but I think here's someone who can hold on to it for a pretty long time

Maureen sure has a gross way of showing it but she really does care about her daughter's happiness.

In other words, Mama Zehm enjoys promiscuity and assumes that everyone else does whether they admit it or not.

Gods bless Maureen...

I love the resistance Tona is putting up here. Considering that, say, a decade ago she might have jumped at a chance to serve her president (who, though contemptible, is nowhere NEAR the clowntown shitshow we have now) in any way he might have asked.

Of course, given the promos and banners and such, we know she evetually steps up...

...I think. LIR comics have surprised me before.

Tona's argumentation is overall well and sound, but she run right into a trap here with the "there's things you won't do for Sam" bit! :-D

Also: Nice foreshortening on the ax!

LOL @ Tona's mom...

I have an older relative, which shall remain unnamed, that is similar. Not in the promiscuity sense, as far as I know, but in carelessly blabbing about sensitive subjects (she's also blonde).

My poor wife gets the brunt of it, and she just lets her talk, because if you try to talk her into being discrete, she just makes a scene.

Sam's got ways of cutting down on Maureen's blabbing

Yeah, the comments section here is also flagged V! S! and L!

isnt she COLD?

wow.

The cold makes Tona hard.

And tougher than a diamond she'll need to be, as she gets hit by bombs, bullets, and one super pissed off Autumn Bay techno-anarchist.

wow.. she must be able to cut glass now.


Sorry .. not sorry .. LOL :D

Yeah, I love Maureen too. It amazes me that her uh personality emerged over the course of only two pages in Volume III... talk about a scene stealer!

At least she's not narrow minded, it seems...
anonymous coward 19th Feb 2017, 6:07 AM edit delete reply
I dunno about that, Maureen is advocating that Tona join a political, armed, reprisal and intimidation squad here. That not a tolerant and broadminded proposal.
