I hope people understand this week’s Dustinland comic is satirical. I mean, I do sort of explain it in the first frame, but I am still a bit afraid of dumb dumbs not getting it and going all woke avenger on me. Not that I am against wokeness. I’m just against the combination of wokeness and stupidity, especially when wielded against purveyors of comedy.
Really though, if someone actually could get Trump supporters to actually care about (or even believe in) climate change, that would be nice. Trump would still probably do nothing about it, but at least that would be a start. I think they’ll start believing when something horrible happens to them — drought, fire etc… Just like all the Republicans politicians who were in the pockets of the insurance companies until their summer homes were destroyed by hurricanes and they didn’t get paid due to insurance loopholes. Suddenly they cared!
Meh, it’s too early for a rant (and unfortunately too early to start drinking).

I drew a more complex comic yesterday but just replaced it with this new Dustinland strip. I need to fix the longer one. Both are about how polarized Trump has made this country. The new comic I just posted shows the result of this. The other longer strip I’m working on is about how authoritarian leaders get us to this point. I think I’ll have it fixed by next week, but who knows. By then we could be dealing with some other horrible thing and I’ll have to draw a comic about that instead, or maybe just skip the whole political thing in favor of a “kids say the darnedest things” strip for some stress release.
In other news, follow me on Facebook because I finally have a fan page! Yes, Facebook is evil and helped us get to this horrible place, but hey, um, people still use it. So I mean, don’t use it if you aren’t already. But if you do use it, follow me there. High five.

This week’s Dustinland comic is about how I fight depression in these dark days. I mean, man, it’s getting pretty bad. When those kids were being taken from their parents, I just didn’t know what to do. I remember drawing an extra comic just to deal with it. Staying up late to do something, anything. Now of course the problem hasn’t be solved, but things are so bad, we’re just happy it’s not getting worse.
Anyway, yeah, if you want to look at it rationally, we are PRETTY fucked. I mean, it’s bad. But emotionally, that can really screw you over unless you just accept it in an eastern “life is suffering” sort of way, or… or I don’t know. You laughing at farting bunny comics.

As I say in this week’s new Dustinland comic, this attitude of “not my problem” is really screwing this country over. It’s sort of a Libertarian / capitalist thing that also winds up getting used by the selfish and lazy simply to justify their greedy lifestyles. Ironically, a lot of people who feel this way also call themselves godly, religious folks, which is really quite impressive, when most major religions are based around selflessness and caring for the needy and less powerful among us.
But hey, it’s fun being a hypocrite. And who wants problems? Problems are stressful. And freedom isn’t free. So just leave me alone and let me hide in my fortified compound with my guns, and don’t bother me unless I get cancer or my house blows down in a hurricane or gets flooded by climate change or my industry needs a subsidy. THEN I’ll come calling for a bail out because then it will be my problem.
Fun times. Happy President’s Day!
P.S. Sorry I missed a few weeks. Been crazy busy at work and these comics don’t pay the bills yo. Unless you buy more of my books! A lot more.
