A hodge podge of topical things.

The shitty contract forced onto rail workers by Congress and the President that contains zero (0) paid sick days is going to cause a lot of problems. Either immediately to the supply chain if a wildcat strike happens, or electorally when unions abandon Democrats for abandoning them.

“B-b-but it was Republicans who voted against it!” some might say. And that’s what Democrats planned on by decoupling sick leave from the rest of the bill. I typed a version of this on Mastodon, where I’ve been dabbling since my Musk-induced departure from Twitter. Hive Social is phone only, and not very secure, so I’m not doing much there besides parking my name.

Decoupling sick days from the rest of the rail bill was done by the Democratic House, so they could blame Senate Republicans while pleasing rail barons.

The antitrust thing could be about Ticketmaster flubbing Taylor Swift tickets, Amazon, cable companies, or almost literally anything else that sucks in this country.

Ron DeSantis’s Back-to-School Rules

Read the comic on Patreon.

Florida governor Ron DeSantis and Republicans in general have spent years demonizing teachers and cutting their funding, and are now dealing with teacher shortages as the school year begins. They’re sending cops and troops in to fill the vacancies, which I’m sure will end well.

One thing I’ve learned the last year or so of drawing this guy is that he’s always doing a third-rate Trump impression. He went to fancy schools, and can never nail it without adding a car dealership vibe to Trump’s awfulness.

Impression critique aside, he’s a fascist actively planning to steal elections. And unfortunately, Florida still has a lot of electoral votes that could decide the fate of the entire country.

Creeping Fa-SHUSH-ism

Read the comic on Patreon.

Republican states are wilding out with anti-abortion, anti-gay, anti-trans, and anti-everyone-who-isn’t-them bills. With a Supreme Court ready to rubber stamp them, the only legislative way to stop them is for the Democratically controlled federal government to pass a law.

That’s not going to happen, so it’s up to those of us not targeted by these garbage laws to protest them and offer aid and support to their victims.

Ron DeSantis’s Emotional Support Police

Read the comic on Patreon.

Taking a break from pointing out Democrats are beefing it again to point out Republicans are still evil.

While letting deaths pile up to blame on Democrats this fall, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is doing lots of dumb stunts to whip up the base, and literally whip anyone who’s not his base.

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!
