This week’s new Dustinland comic is about the tough choice ahead of us in the U.S. presidential election. And by tough choice, I mean the decision between perhaps not your ideal candidate in the form of Joe Biden, and Trump, an evil conman dictator autocrat using America’s enemies to dismantle our democracy for his personal financial gain and narcissistic and likely mentally ill ego. You know, it’s a toss up. Vote for a nice guy who means well and is a rational caring human being, or someone who’s never done a thing to help anyone in his entire life, and whose actions could risk the future of life on earth. TOUGH CHOICE PEOPLE!

This week’s new Dustinland comic is about how our kids are silently absorbing all the negative political conversations we have while they’re playing off in the corner, seemingly ignoring us.
Now, in the comic, I joke about being proud of my son’s actual real life quote, but in all seriousness, I find it concerning. I don’t want him to be as stressed out and negative as I am. But I guess it can’t help but seep in. Because they really are little sponges, and they’re listening, even when you think they’re not. And whether you’re a liberal, a conservative, or something in between (which I think is actually the truth for most of us), we need to protect our kids from the unrelenting negativity, hate and cynicism that’s dominating politics in the U.S. — and in much of the world, from what it sounds like. We need the next generation to grow up thinking they can make a difference, in their own lives, and to the world.
So yeah, as funny as it can seem, no more Dusty Downers…

This new Dustinland comic — the last of 2019 — is a bit of a “guide”‘ for your 2020 new year’s resolutions. But you know, it’s a bit tongue in cheek. You’ll see what I mean. Let’s just say that next year, maybe give yourself a bit of a break, if that’s what it takes to keep your sanity.
Good luck, happy new year, and thanks for reading!
