The Amazon Economy   Recently updated !

If you enjoy my work and can afford to, please consider supporting it on Patreon.

Jeff Bezos is buying Whole Foods and now Amazon’s one step closer to becoming the kind of monopolistic mega-corporation previously only seen in the Robocop franchise.

The days of antitrust laws are long gone, but maybe one day there will be the political will to break up Bezos’ empire like Ma Bell and Standard Oil.

Hot Take Wave   Recently updated !

Become a patron and see this comic now. Your support keeps me going in this modern media hellscape.

I fully acknowledge that I’m part of the opinion-industrial-complex and its role in creating an uninformed public. But that doesn’t mean I have to like it.

The Privatized States of America   Recently updated !

Last week was supposed to be “Infrastructure Week” for the Trump Administration, but Comey and Jeremy Corbyn made sure no one gave a shit. And that’s just what Mitch McConnell wants, so he can rush through the Senate’s Obamacare repeal while people who have fun during the summer aren’t paying attention.

Privatization and monopolization are both bad and terrible, but that’s a lot of complicated “-zations” to narrow down to a soundbite. Thankfully we have the handy phrase, “Capitalism is bad.” to summarize this sentiment.

A Closer Look at Golf Cart One

Become a patron and see all my comics early. Your support helps a lot!
President Lazyass couldn’t walk a few hundred yards with the other heads of state at the G7 summit and opted to take a golf cart instead.

He’s old and not in great shape, and I’d generally try to avoid ageism, but this asshole spent the entire campaign going on about how his opponents lacked stamina.

Sean Hannity’s Impromptu Vacation

This is an exclusive comic for Patreon supporters who pledge $5 or more a month. Subscribe now!

Advertisers started bailing on Sean Hannity’s show after he started peddling some baseless conspiracy theories about a DNC staffer who died. Hannity claims he’ll be returning to pollute the airwaves, so it’s not quite as wonderful as Bill O’Reilly’s banishment from Fox News.

Pick Your Health Care Plan

Become a Patreon subscriber so I can pay my health insurance premium.

While the American Health Care Act passed the House, and waits for the Senate to do something with it, the funding that keeps Obamacare running is being pulled to justify its repeal. Despite its clunkiness, the Affordable Care Act was a vast improvement over what we had before.

Romneycare, which became Obamacare nationwide, provided me with affordable health insurance that I previously didn’t have access to as a freelancer. But last year I fell into the trap of making just enough money to lose the subsidies, and now I’m paying over $300 a month so some insurance company CEO can rake in millions. And that’s in Massachusetts, where  enough insurance companies are in the markets to offer competitive pricing.

Maybe single-payer isn’t politically possible yet, but we’ll never get there if politicians keep shrugging their shoulders and ruling it out before even trying. Both Ryan Cooper and Emma Roller make a convincing case that the time for single-payer is now.

Finally, screw Joe Lieberman for killing the public option.

Washington Witch Hunt

Support my work at Patreon and get cool stuff.

Trump bitched and moaned on Twitter about being the victim of the single greatest witch hunt of a politician in American History. It’s a shitty analogy, since witch hunts are baseless, because witches don’t exist.I live close to Salem, Mass., which has built a cottage industry around witch tourism. All the Wiccan parties up there tend to gloss over the fact that those persecuted in the witch trials were normal and it was their accusers who believed in the witch nonsense.

For accuracy, I was going to include the old-timey long s in the title, Waſhington Witch Hunt, but that would be a pain to type every time I promote this comic on social media.

James Comey’s Future Career Plans

James Comey’s firing is very shady and will probably result in many hearings, and maybe even legal action if the Democrats can get their shit together and win some elections.

But let’s not forget that Comey’s FBI sucks shit, too. Here’s a comic I did when he tried to strong-arm Apple in decrypting their phones after the San Bernardino shootings. And here’s one from that time he arguably tanked the thin margin Hillary Clinton had going into the week before the election.
