The Golden Fool

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.
