Hide and Seek with ICE   Recently updated !

Immigration and Customs Enforcement has been at the center of some pretty awful news this week.

A woman in Texas who was seeking a protective order against her abusive partner was arrested at the courthouse  after said abusive partner tipped ICE off to her immigrations status.

In Virginia, ICE agents ambushed men leaving a church’s hypothermia shelter. The list goes on and on.

The cruelty of this regime’s raids and detentions are heart wrenching, but let’s not pretend previous administrations were anything but callous either.

Tall Tales of Terror   Recently updated !

Since my run at the NYTimes came to end, I’ve launched a Patreon. Supporters can see the comic now. Readers who aren’t that into me can still see it when it appears across the web later next week!

Kellyanne Conway and Sean Spicer are inventing Islamic terror attacks in order to justify the Administration’s terrible executive orders.

If and when a real attack happens, they’re going to seize the opportunity to do even worse things than George W. Bush and Cheney did.

Unless it’s right-wing extremists, then they’ll get ignored like the Quebec Mosque shooting, or the Texas Mosque arson.

Orange is the New Black History Month

Despite his cluelessness about Frederick Douglass, the White House’s current orange occupant has his own rich history with African-Americans. It’s all bad. Housing discrimination, racist ad campaigns, and his KKK-adjacent father are just the tip of a very racist iceberg.

The bloated underbelly of that iceberg belongs to Steve Bannon. Who writes the orders Trump signs without reading.

Dr. Ryan’s ACA Replacement

The Affordable Care Act (Which is the same as Obamacare, despite the fact that the two names get very different levels of support.) is going to be repealed. Its replacement is going to be our old way of letting more people die of preventable disease.

While an improvement over that, the ACA is far from great and should be improved and expanded. Politicians who deluded themselves into pretending the ACA was perfect and needed no improvements had a hard time selling that to the public who actually uses it. Single Payer is a goal that every campaign should champion. Save the “let’s stick to what’s politically possible” for the end of a debate. Starting from there is a loser’s game.
