Somebody Has Got To Go

Good morning, I hope everyone had a restful and safe weekend. Because now it’s time to pay the taxman! I’ll be going over bills, invoices, bank statements and all that other fun stuff we get to deal with once every year. I realize the date has been moved to May, but taxes are one thing I like to get over with.

Meanwhile, things in the bigger picture continue on the road to weirdness, more shootings, police violence, and to me perhaps the most aggravating development is that the former guy continues to spout egregious lies that will cause yet more damage to the country. Let’s be honest, all the disruptions in the social environment are due to the liar’s lies about the election, the pandemic, the vaccine, etc. We have ongoing threats of violence and foolish people protesting basic public health procedures that have been proven to be effective for not just years, but centuries! We have many people who I have spoken to, who to my surprise are rejecting any thoughts of being vaccinated, thanks to the liar’s lies about COVID-19. The dangerous lies continue, so my question is, Are there ANY consequences to the filthy rich elites in this country for crimes carried out in PUBLIC?

EVERYONE knows TRUMP IS GUILTY of inciting a violent insurrection in which people were KILLED! And yet, has he paid any significant price for all the damages he continues to inflict on this nation? No instead he’s griping, like the petulant child he is, that “they didn’t name the vaccine after me! Wahhh!!!” OK let’s call it the Trumpccine, to treat the Trumpdemic and the Trump Depression caused by the Trump Virus. Then let’s bring the liar to justice and throw him in a cage. I hope you enjoy my comic, once I get this site set up correctly, I’ll soon begin posting my previous graphic novel. Have a great day!

Time for Spring Cleaning

I’ve spent a lot of time lately thinking about how for-profit corporations should be contributing a lot more in taxes, and since they got a nice fat tax reduction a few years back, it’s time they pay for a post pandemic infrastructure upgrade. But I’ll get into that in more depth maybe next week. This week is time to begin a transition to a “new normal.”

My greedy property managers raised my rent for the third year in a row, I don’t know why they think a 8-10% annual increase is fair or tolerable. So I’m doing a spring cleaning on steroids, training a harsh eye on all my belongings and jettisoning everything I don’t need. The first step in finding a new place to live.

Also, it’s Tax Week! Yippeee! I mean Ugh. So I’ll be getting out all the receipts, going over my bank records, and figuring out how much I owe to the system that takes my money every year and apparently directs most of it to people who don’t need more money. I have no problem with paying taxes as long as the money goes to things that help people who work for a living.

The most obvious sign in my life that things are heading back to some version of normal is the guys in my band are anticipating playing in public and we’re getting enthusiastic about learning new songs. So I’m memorizing lyrics and practicing riffs between shifts of working on cleaning up some of last year’s mess. In preparation for a return to life after a long stressful year of isolation! Have a great week!
