It's been a while since I've posted anything. Part of the problem is whenever I post I am so disturbed by something that I sound suicidal or deranged. I am not.
I am, however, very frustrated. The world is busy with trying to not insult anyone and if anyone is insulted it is the end of the world. Unless that person happens to be a Christian. If that person is a white Christian, then double points because we've caused all the pain and suffering in the world.
The way I see things, the world is trying to flip the scales so white people are on the bottom rung of society and minorities are in control. Please don't take this as I'm saying white people should be in charge and I'm just waiting on Klan hoods to come back from the cleaners, my point is you cannot fix injustice with more injustice.
Charlotte is the latest example. A black man was killed by police. That is all we know. The police say he had a gun, we know there was a gun at the scene. The family says he was reading a book, the police say there was not a book at the scene. That's really all we know. From that we have three nights of protests and the first two nights the protests turned into riots and looting. After the national guard was pulled in and a midnight to 6AM curfew was put in place the third night was apparently peaceful.
Do the people who are looting and rioting think that will "Avenge" the fallen? Will it tip the scales in their favor? Will it force those in authority to suddenly respect them?
It's hard to keep a sarcastic, humorous point of view while you watch society eat itself.
As for the upcoming election, this is the first one where I don't want to vote. I know each candidate is terrible. Do I vote to put an orange Cheeto into the White House, or a known liar with possible brain damage? Do I not vote and let the cards fall where they may?
I'm still mulling that one over.
Anyway, I may have some new ideas on cartoons coming up. Perhaps I can laugh my way through the Apocalypse. We're all in this together.
