Pandemic Summer Games

Read the comic on Patreon.

We had a month when it seemed like the vaccines were turning the tide on the pandemic, before the vaccine-ignorant let the Delta Variant run rampant in their dumb lungs.

Provincetown, MA is having rapid increases in infections, even among the vaccinated. Thankfully deaths aren’t following suit, but it seems obvious our honor system experiment was as doomed as all of us who kept our masks on indoors assumed it would be.

Incredible Billionaire Adventures

Read the comic on Patreon.

The pandemic’s still going (and worsening), half the country’s on fire, and the other half’s alternating between floods and heat waves every other week. This as the backdrop for billionaires racing to recreate something the Soviets first accomplished (Sorry, Alan Shepard and John Glenn.) almost 60 years ago doesn’t say much for the free market’s ability to conquer space.

Fox Weather Channel

Pretty neat that every cable subscription underwrites Murdoch’s trash that’s been undermining democracy for 25+ years.

As for actual weather news, my phone’s been telling me to prepare for lots of flooding tomorrow due to Elsa’s remnants. If that’s the worst weather we get this summer, I’ll consider myself lucky.

Republicans’ Uncritical Race Stories

Read the comic on Patreon.

The latest culture war Republicans came up with to distract from their obstruction is yet another racist dog whistle. And this one also lets them scaremonger about elitist college professors and students.

Opposing this horseshit is usually a waste of time to distract from talking about popular issues that would make Republicans look bad. But when it turns into actual fascist laws like Florida’s Mandatory College Ideology Registration, I dunno. I don’t think we’re gonna argue or even vote our way out of this descent into fascism.

Anyway, Have a Summah!

Secondary Climate Emergencies

Read the comic on Patreon.

We just had a lengthy heat wave here in Boston. This year’s droughts are going to make last year’s wildfires look like nothing. New records for carbon in the atmosphere are being set every week.

And the infrastructure bill that may or may not happen is having all climate mitigation efforts stripped out of it.

Oh, yeah, and the pandemic is still not under control, despite what it feels like here in America.

See you next week with more jokes!

Joe Manchin’s Imaginary Friends

Read the comic on Patreon.

It’s pretty neat that the next election will be stolen because of these two refusing to end the filibuster. (And John Roberts for gutting the Voting Rights Act in the first place.) Democracy was fun for the few decades we had it.
