Susan Collins’s Concerns

Read the comic on Patreon.

Whining about protesters is all the rage this week among those who don’t want to mention the impending overturning of Roe v. Wade. Claiming these spontaneous, harmless protests are “protoviolence” and beyond the scope of the First Amendment is the first step to normalize the looming crackdowns when the (illegitimate) SCOTUS opinion officially comes down.

I don’t really want Maine to return to Massachusetts, but a lot of states should be consolidated, especially the prairie states which produce nothing more than senators, grain and natural gas.

Quick Fixes for the Supreme Court

The repealing of Roe v. Wade was inevitable when Anthony Kennedy mysteriously retired. I’d love for the reason for that, or the identity of Kavanaugh’s debt-absolving benefactors to be leaked, too. Leaving Merrick Garland’s nomination to die on the vine and RBG dying for real were just gravy for the forced-birth freaks.

If this further overreach by Republicans goes without massive protests, the next coup’s going to make Bush v. Gore look like a sound legal opinion.

I didn’t draw or write anything illegal in the redacted panels, by the way. They are “Pray the Court Away,” and “A Vote Makes the Court Go Away!” if any FBI agent is asking.

Texas Vigilantes

Mitch McConnell’s Supreme Court gutted Roe v. Wade in Texas and will soon do it in other states. Democrats are still insisting the only thing to be done is to vote. Voters busted their asses to give them a trifecta so they could pack the courts, and codify abortion rights into law RIGHT NOW, but they’d rather have the fundraising boogeyman to run against than do something useful.

Total Electoral Eclipse

Total Electoral EclipseTrump’s malignant shadow is obscuring everything else going on in the world. The ugliness of his campaign and its supporters is certainly newsworthy, but we’ll have a lot of catching up to do if and when the Trump phenomenon fades.

I wrote and drew this before Neil deGrasse Tyson proved himself to be no political scientist over the weekend on Twitter:

Maybe everything he knows about astrophysics leaves very little brain real estate for civics.
