Trump Shopping Network   Recently updated !

Read the comic on Patreon.

Courts say Trump has to pay a lot of money in judgements from his assorted fraud and defamation trials. Now his PACs are broke from paying for all his legal fees. Then last week he debuted a shitty $400 sneaker at a sneaker convention in Philadelphia.  Seems desperate! But …

He’s currently trying to delay and appeal, and even if that fails, I’m not convinced he’ll ever pay up. I’ll be happy to see him face consequences for delinquency, but the courts and politicians have proved their unwillingness to put this shithead in a cell.

America’s Assignment Editor

Read the comic on Patreon.

The NYTimes was never the bastion of the liberal media people claim it is, but it’s definitely taken a hard right turn since nepo baby AG Sulzberger took over the family business. He oversaw James Bennett becoming opinion editor, who let Bari Weiss and Tom Cotton run insane 4chan shit for a couple years before the normal employees put up enough of a stink to run him out. (With a few notable exceptions, the opinion section still sucks shit though.)

The rightward tilt of the “straight” news side were always there, with the Iraq War propaganda being the most blatant in my lifetime. But Trump has sent them over the deep end; either to appear neutral with both-sides bullshit, or actively targeting a minority to signal their willingness to work with fascists.

None of this will save them if they succeed in getting the second Trump term they want so bad. He hates their fancy high society guts and will send them to the camps with the rest of us.

New Tech Trends

Read the comic on Patreon.

Apple started selling their dumb goggles this week, so we’re being subjected to another round of hype trying to sell this garbage. Every “big idea” Silicon Valley’s tried to sell over the last decade or two has either been outright fraud (self-driving cars, Theranos, crypto, etc.) or just re-inventing something that already exists, but with middle-men to extract money from users and the people doing the real work (gig economy, rideshare, streaming, etc.).

I swear I’ll get off my “Capitalism Bad” kick next week.

2024 Valentines

Read the comic on Patreon.

Fake valentines are an (almost) annual tradition since I first started drawing weekly cartoons over 22 years ago. The little cut-out dots and scissors are vestigial artifacts from when my comics regularly appeared on paper products called “alt-weeklies.”

While there’s apparently a lot of decent economic news these days, things are pretty grim for tech and especially media jobs. Execs are either hollowing out their staffs to boost dividends, or simply getting bored with their media toys and moving on to the next big grift.
