Ship of State


I can always count on this guy to put on a big Halloween show on his lawn.


Matt Warshauer is a history professor at Central Connecticut State University who thinks
the American ship of state is in trouble.  On every pirate ship, someone walks the plank.
On his, it is James Comey.  A DACA student is next.



The Mad King is (kind of) in charge of the ship.  He is rigged to breathe smoke, 
but not when I was there.

This Halloween display is exceptional. The political humour is a bonus.

Funny. And a lot of effort.

Oh my gosh, that is a lot of work to go to for Halloween. It is amusing though.

That really is a lot of work, but worth it!

How timely and such fun! There could be many more people on the gangplank, Jack!

Parody is always fun and funny, especially when it contains a kernel of truth. But there may be some people who cannot take a joke. Wonderful catch for the Halloween season even if it is highly political.

Wow, that is quite the display!

Enormous amount of work with tremendous result. Astonishing talent. Brave people to put a statement like this outside their house. Are you allowed to climb on board?

I am not an American so although we hear a lot in our news about what's going on I don't know enough to 'get' things straight away. So I had to check up on Jack Comey and look up DACA which I hadn't heard of before. It's chilling times.

That's quite a production. I wish it weren't so on point. Not that we can't use the humor. Just that the ship of state is such a painful soap opera.
