Oh, that dang Obama. ;D

Good thing we're being cared for by a "stable genius".

I have a stubborn, profane, vaguely racist grandpa-in-law.

Love that guy. Really. He built a lot of stuff.

But that doesn't mean I'd ever vote for him for so much as county dog catcher.

Was wondering where he would show up, but still have no idea what the point is of Carter being here to do this. Still don't know who is ultimately ordering and signing off on that deployment, why, and what else they're up to.

Will be clear in a couple updates.

There are penalties for trying to play by anything other than Autumn Bay rules.

Makes sense; there is no way Tona's paramilitary thug squad is big enough to change the rules without paying a steep price.

If Tona ends up redoing the lessons of Iraq and Afghanistan on American soil without learning them I will be disappointed. What I would *not* be is surprised.

Having filed the Desert Eagle in my head under being something stereotypically "'Murican" (even though Wikipedia says that it was originally designed in Israel), this left me temporally wondering if he is still talking about "dem damn Arabs" in panel two.
I call this "stereotype dissonance"...

Heh heh, the .50 cal Desert Eagle is an Israeli weapon!

Arguable: I'd say they're American. The first manufacturer was IMI, who redesigned it from the original spec to something they could build, but the Desert Eagle was first designed by Magnum Research and they have been manufactured at their facility in Pillager, Minnesota since 2009.

It is a handgun for bear hunters and dangerous fools with too much money though.

Yeah, I'm wrong on this. That POS is as American as mom's apple pie.

The Desert Eagle is to pistols what the American health care sector is to medicine: bloated and inefficient and a spectacular way to die if you can afford it.

The most American part of the story: Magnum Research was bought out by Kahr Arms of Greeley, Pennsylvania in 2010. I struggle to think of anything more American than buying out the competition, is there anything?

Oh, it's one of the "law and order" types. Let's hope he's on the receiving end of the hand cannon he's dissing
