Revolutionary Grrl Page 4–What? Rival Police Forces?

As Revolutionary Grrl hides from the police--a DIFFERENT police cruiser arrives.

The triumph of free markets--police forces to the highest bidder.

What, you say? Rival police companies? Well, why not? Who’s to say that some people or businesses wouldn’t want THEIR police wasting time with THOSE people? This IS a dystopic future after all! Triumph of the free market!

After all, don’t we already have rival Republican parties? Speaking of wasting time, that’s all that was accomplished by the latest Tea Party tantrum. Obama, Reid, Pelosi and company hanged tough while the patriots who hate the U.S. government floundered for a demand. Don’t worry, there’ll be another ransom attempt–and another and another–until the Republicans lose the house or the black guy ain’t President no more, whichever comes first. And don’t worry, the media will portray it as BOTH parties’ fault…

Revolutionary Grrl–Page 3–The Fanservice continues

Revolutionary Grrl is stopped by the sound of an approaching police car.

Page 3--Revolutionary Grrl hides from a prowling patrol car.

Ordinarily, I do not post on the Tuesday after a Monday holiday, but as Revolutionary Grrl is just beginning, I don’t want the momentum of the story to drop.

We see that the Tea Party has continued to hold the debt ceiling, and by extension, the U.S. economy, hostage. Speaker of the House Boehner is unwilling to call for a vote. The answer to the question of who he’s more afraid of, the Tea Party or his corporate masters, is settled–he’s more afraid of his own shadow. Something tells me that that man will never appear in Profiles in Courage, the Sequel–except maybe as one of the antagonists in the chapter honoring Harry Reid.

But surprise, surprise–the deck had been stacked. While normally ANY member of Congress could have called for a vote–a Saturday Night Special committee vote limited THIS issue to being called by the majority leader of the House.

President Obama is still holding steady–which is a good thing–but which is something he should have done a couple of years ago. The main reason we’re in this predicament is that Barry has wanted so much to be reasonable, to negotiate, to be the adult in the room, that he let the miscreants run wild over the good kids. It’s only now that his legacy, the so-called Obamacare that enshrines business as usual for the insurance companies with a few exceptions, excoriated as socialism by people who have no idea what the term even MEANS, has been threatened that he shows some backbone.

This week, the Congress of the United States might commit collective treason and deliberately trash the full faith and credit of the United States. Was Plato right? Does democracy always devolve into demagoguery? A few days will tell.

In the meantime, we will continue with the story of Revolutionary Grrl–a NEAR FUTURE tale that takes place in the world we are condemning ourselves to.

And, my (deleted by censor) birthday was October 12. Thanks to all for your birthday wishes and happy birthdays to all who share my date as well!

And The Anthony Wiener Lifetime Achievement Award Goes To …

The Anthony Wiener Lifetime Achievement Award

(AR)Anthony J. Wiener, candidate for Mayor of New York City, was presented today with the Anthony Wiener Lifetime Achievement Award at being a dick. The award, named for Anthony Wiener after his last Twitter flashing scandal, was presented to Wiener after the story of his latest sexting fiasco went pubic … err, public. Mr. Wiener said that weathering his latest crisis will make him a better mayor, and when presented with the celebratory brass phallus and balls, said, “Aww, guys, you shouldn’t have. Seriously, you shouldn’t have.”

Actually, Anthony–YOU shouldn’t have! You want to be a better mayor? STOP HAVING S**T FOR BRAINS!

(Note to self: find Anthony Wiener’s Porn Name Generator.)

I realize that this week’s cartoon isn’t very complex, but after I saw John Cuneo’s New Yorker cover, I realized that nothing could top it. This is one cover that really stands out, up and out there!

In any case, it is time to announce my summer hiatus. From August to early September, I will either be prepping for conventions or actually attending them. I will be at Otakon at the Baltimore Convention Center, August 8-11, where I will have pictures in the Art Show and will be taking pictures of cosplayers and having a good time. August 23-25 will see me at Intervention Con, at the Hilton Washington DC/Rockville, in Artists Alley. And from September 13 through September 15, I will be at AnimeUSA at the Washington Wardman Park Marriott, once again in the Art Show and schmoozing. We will return on September 23 and we hope we will have an ADDITIONAL FEATURE to share with you then! Watch this space and my Facebook page for further announcements!

Fred and Bert Squirrel join me in wishing you a great summer! See you soon!
