Saturday Snickers

Each Saturday Power Line's Steven Hayward posts a collection of cartoons, recaptioned photos, and other funny stuff, something he calls "The Week in Pictures." Here are my favorites described:

Cartoon woman on sofa says to husband sitting beside her:
I worry that replacing Obamacare could rob America's most vulnerable of the health coverage that everybody else can't afford.
The classic road sign labeled CAUTION showing the silhouettes of an immigrant family running, this one includes a Trump silhouette with a big butterfly net chasing them.

Photo of an old, tired FDR sitting beside Joe Stalin at Yalta, labeled:
Leftist hero meets with Russia.
Gives Russia half of Europe.
Photo of a screaming 2 year old in full tantrum mode, refusing to stand and being dragged along by one arm by his mother who is basically ignoring him, labeled:
Liberal Protests
How It All Began
Photo of a worried-looking raccoon with its hand-like paws folded, captioned:
A History Lesson
Are you sitting comfortably? Then I will begin ...
Do you know what happened 166 years ago this summer ... September 9, 1850?
California became a state! The people had no electricity, the state had no money, and almost everyone spoke Spanish. There were gunfights in the streets.
So basically NOTHING has changed except back then the women had real tits and the men didn't hold hands.
And that, my friends, is your history lesson for today.
