Donald Trump’s Cabinet

This week’s Dustinland comic is about Donald Trump’s cabinet. The comic does not portray the real one, but rather my take on his dream cabinet. But what I’m really trying to say is that Trump seems to be enacting the classic conservative tactic of appointing people who don’t believe in an agency’s stated goal to head that agency. So if there’s an agency dedicated to saving trees, he appoints a guy who works for the lumber industry. That sort of thing. That way he doesn’t have to go through the hard work of actually killing the EPA. He can just make it useless and weak via an oil industry stooge.

This is happening across the board, in the name of the economy, jobs and big business! I think we have to try this every 4-8 years because people forget what happens. This time I’m thinking all we’ll need is two. Two years of Trump and I think people will be just about done. Definitely metaphorically but perhaps literally. Hopefully not though. Hey, hopefully I’m wrong about this whole thing and Trump is the best president ever. Fingers crossed.

Avatar Birdys

This week’s Birdys (1220, 1221, 1222) were inspired by the movie Avatar. Now I know what you’re thinking: Dustin, oh infinite hater of all things, did you dislike the movie? Actually, no, I quite enjoyed it. My quick review: I will forgive the poor dialgoue, silly plot holes, and occasional bad acting, for it is all balanced out by the film’s incredible visual beauty (see it in 3D to have your mind blown) and its ultra liberal message (might as well have been written by Noam Chomsky). Well, for once something has lived up to the hype.
