Officer Joe Cobb, the shocked guy in the last panel, was/is one of those police characters. However, over the past year or more of this comic strip, Ray’s life has slowly been …read more

What do Trump voters want?

“… In this terrible political year, the story was in part one of people in Appalachia angrily demanding a return of the good jobs they used to have mining coal — even though the world doesn’t want more coal given fracking, and it can get the coal it still wants from strip mines and mountaintop removal, which don’t employ many people.”

So, old school coal mining jobs are impossible (unhealthy and dangerous, as well), sorry. Teach your children to type really fast, think faster, and know we’re all in this together. Then we, they, you, all of us might stand something of a chance at a future.

“… those longing for the return to coal want is those jobs they deserve, where they earn their money — not government handouts, no sir.

“A fact-constrained candidate wouldn’t have been able to promise such people what they want; Trump, of course, had no problem.”

Alas.

“But is that really all there is? Working-class Trump voters do, in fact, receive a lot of government handouts — they’re almost totally dependent on Social Security for retirement, Medicare for health care when old, are quite dependent on food stamps, and many have recently received coverage from Obamacare. Quite a few receive disability payments too. They don’t want those benefits to go away. But they managed to convince themselves (with a lot of help from Fox News etc) that they aren’t really beneficiaries of government programs, or that they’re not getting the ‘good welfare,’ which only goes to Those People.

“And you can really see this in the regional patterns. California is an affluent state, a heavy net contributor to the federal budget; it went 2-1 Clinton. West Virginia is poor and a huge net recipient of federal aid; it went 2 1/2-1 Trump.”

I guess this makes us all suckers. Or something. Me? It just makes me sad.
What do Trump voters want?, by Paul Krugman, NY Times, December 17, 2016 (sorry for the long quotes NY Times)

What so Trump voters want? I guess they just want to watch their world burn.

Looking at a collage can spark creativity

It says so right here:

“I love visual art, so this week I’m looking at collages, which rely on the juxtaposition of images in a surprising way to generate new meaning. They’re designed to provoke a sense of unconventionality and unconsciously inspire the viewer to become more creative. Here’s an image from one of my favorite collage artists, Ginger Mayerson:”

Donating to MSF

Remember how much I like Médecins Sans Frontières?

I just donated $75 to them via this paypal link:

http://www.paypal.com/fundraiser/105865137050618816

So it was actually $75.75, hey, every nickle counts with Médecins Sans Frontières because they wring 10 cents out of every nickle. Or something.

Anyway, click the link and let PayPal do something good for a change. Or at least 1% of it.

You’ll be glad you did.

Rudy Giuliani Is Donald Trump’s Top Pick for Secretary of State, Diplomat John Bolton Also in Running, by Nicholas Hautman, Weekly US, November 15, 2016

America’s Kaligula Theater, episode 1

Okay, I’m back. Do I want to be back? No, of course not. I was hoping I could hit the political snooze button for another four years, but it is not to be. I’m sorry Hillary lost. I’m sure she’s sorry, too, but not as sorry as I am. Of course I’m also sure this isn’t the last we’ll ever see of Clan Clinton anymore than it’s the last we’ll ever see of cicadas, Godzilla movies, or those crazy dreams of a better world for everyone. I wish she’d won; she didn’t, and life goes on.

So, anyway. Welcome to America’s Caligula Theater, episode 1. And we’re starting off with a bang from the fabulous Molly Kiely.

The past is never dead.

It’s not even in the past. Alas.

“Early this morning, when Donald Trump accepted the presidency of the United States, Ronald Reagan and Jerry Falwell were somewhere enjoying the last laugh. Their vision for the nation had held firm for almost four decades, culminating with a candidate who spoke their truths more clearly than either could have imagined. As leaders of America’s turn right, the two had convinced millions of Americans that a godly America was a good America, and that God wanted a strong nation of self-reliant, successful conservatives who if not Christian, likewise supported free markets and traditional families.

“Trump, who espoused similar ideas in saltier language, is their heir.”
Might, Right, and White Privilege: It’s Morning in America, the Sequel, by Diane Winston, Religion Dispatches, November 9, 2016

And then again there are those of us who get to deal with whatever the now very uncertain future will bring. Yes, Morning in America is tough on those of us working nights.

…well, shit. At least we still have some laws… don’t we?

Hillary Dickory Dock, a punk anthem by the fabulous Lisa Moncure

Hillary dickory dock
the white house reeks of cock
the cocks are done
the house is hers
Hillary dickory dock

Trump grabbed some snatch
he has met his match
pussy is in the news

Airing the laundry
boys in a quandary
media frenzy ensues

Hillary dickory dock
the white house reeks of cock
the cocks are done
the house is hers
Hillary dickory dock

The house is a mess
time for a dress
piscean heirarchy ends

Pussy power
will topple the tower
aquarian age begins

Hillary dickory dock
the white house reeks of cock
the cocks are done
the house is won
