This new Dustinland comic pretty much says it all. It is a really miserable time for a majority of Americans. Although a very vocal minority is super happy right now, and I will say it right here: Just wait for the gloating comments on this strip. I predict they will either simply revel in “look how the liberals are freaking out” or perhaps voice some sort of sad, patronizing “the liberals are now delusional and we should pity them” thing. Just watch — it is so predictable, it’s really sad and scary. I have to admit, the right wing propaganda machine we are witnessing right now is incredibly effective to the point of sci-fi brainwashing. It may be undoable. I mean, we’re in 1984 territory right now, with truth and fact no longer agreed upon. 2 + 2 =5. That’s our future. Hell, that’s our present. Fun times everyone. Drink up. Happy holidays.

Yeah, taxes suck. Nothing new here. But as I say in this week’s Dustinland, they do pay for stuff. Really the big bummer, for me, is getting surprised with an April whammy. Next year I am going to fix my stuff up so that everything is taken out correctly beforehand, because I’d rather wind up getting a pleasant surprise than a sock full of bad news. And I think that goes for life in general really. I don’t know if that approach leads to ultimate happiness, but it certainly spares you major disappointment. Playin it safe! High five.
