Criminal And Crimefighter Conversations #155 – Succubus, Drizzle,
& Luscious Trapp On Randomness Then More Obama
As I write this the comic isn’t done yet. It’s another one where I originally wrote too much material and now I have to edit and squeeze what I can in. When you see this it will be the last day of Obama’s presidency. There’s so much to say, and yet there’s nothing to say.
There won’t be an increase in the minimum wage. We can only hope there is one at all.
Deregulation will increase the severity of climate change and cause more disasters like the one in Flint.
Maybe they’re not crazy enough to snatch healthcare from millions… Maybe
And this is the small stuff. Not the “Russia might now control America”, insane conflicts of interest, loss of Civil Rights stuff. Yesterday I wrote that 2 things going through my head were “the cycle” and “learning the wrong lesson”. A 3rd thing is “we deserve a better ending” and that’s what I attempt to do more and more from these comics.
That’s it for this week. Check out new “Criminal And Crimefighter Conversations” Tuesday-Thursday. Hope you enjoy and see ya then!
Criminal And Crimefighter Conversations #154 – Ms. Majors,
Drizzle, & Luscious Trapp On …Eventually They Get To Obama
Two things keep ringing in my head. “The cycle” and “learning the wrong lesson”. As much as I hope we’ll break this cycle of voting in one party for 8 years then voting in the other I really don’t see us breaking it. I’m still seeing too many people blaming the wrong people. The lesson to learn is VOTE. The one glimmer of light in this election is that it proved there’s a lot more of us than them. If this is even kind of a democracy (and it’s quite possible it soon might not be) if we come out we win. We can argue about the specifics later.
I’ll go ahead and say it. Obama is easily the best president of my lifetime, and Bill Clinton was a damn good president. Clinton was president in a time of relative peace and when the economy was almost certainly going to be good due to the internet boom though. Obama inherited 2 wars and a near Great Depression. Another thing I’ll miss about Obama is not being embarrassed by the president. That really sucked under Bush and with Trump it’s already so much worse.
Tomorrow we swap out Ms. Majors for Succubus as they talk more “Scandal” and Obama. Hope you enjoy and see ya then!
Criminal And Crimefighter Conversations #153 – Ms. Majors, Drizzle, &
Luscious Trapp On “Scandal” And Other Stuff
This is it. Like for real no joke. Obama is gone after Thursday and Trump is the Goddamn president. There isn’t going to be any last minute save. The “rebels won’t come through with the plans”. This is it. Seriously, what’s the best case scenario? Our country just being an embarrassment until Trump’s impeached?
It still doesn’t feel real. There’d be a sadness to this week even if Hillary had won, but this is something else. The thing is though, through it all Obama himself still seems to have faith in us. He has no reason to. We failed him at pretty much every mid-term election, and we failed to hold on to his legacy. But still he has faith in us, he still has hope. The whole hope thing isn’t BS with him. That might be the thing I like best about him. That he was almost always steady and calm. Nothing was ever unfixable, a defeat was always temporary, a challenge was never impossible.
Okay more about Obama later this week on to this actual comic. So I originally thought “Scandal” started this week, but it’s actually next week. It’s a damn good show. Parts of the last few seasons have gotten ridiculous but other parts always keep it interesting enough that it’s worth watching. If you never watched it I highly recommend it.
Tomorrow these 3 return to talk about “Scandal” and maybe Obama a bit. Hope you enjoy and see ya then!
