Barbie still wants her answers and finally, she gets one!

Yep, that's what I'm saying--because people couldn't deal with reality, we dreamed up religions. Like gods. We can face reality together and together we'll can deal with it. Or, we can look for ways to unite together and make the world better for all of us instead of tricking each other to make it MUCH better for just some of us. I'm lookin' at you 1%ers!!

The latest episode in "That Entitled Woman Adventures"! Is this the final episode? Tune in next week to find out!

In the meantime, the punchline refers to Republicans or anyone who wants it "their way." The universe does not give a shit about your way. So, treat everyone with respect and politeness and maybe they will help you get it done your way. I don't care if sometimes raising a big stink gets you to "your way" faster. Do you want to shit on people to get "your way"? Just be nice whether it gets you what you want or not.

Thank you for reading.

Can you tell I've worked in retail? This person is horrible.  I mean, not "Hitler" horrible, but compared to where she should be?  Chill out, lady!

Billy and Barbie explore the United State of Futility

I'm often the canary in the coal mine shaft, so this week's Ballpoint may not resonate with you. That said, I've been noticing more and more truly pointless arguments from all kinds of people on all sides of politics and non-politics. Even arguments that seem important often aren't because we've been tricked into distraction. There are times when I listen to people complain and I just don't understand what they are looking for. Like the expectations they've formed in their minds don't match anything fair to this reality. I feel like many of us are swirling down the drain of futility in this country and on this planet.

In other news, if you feel like throwing me a buck or two on patreon, I just might keep drawing this comic.  If not, I may just stop. Don't want to support me monthly? Then just let me know you care by buying me a coffee.

Good old @realDonaldTrump gets the treatment he deserves (and it's a laugh!)

Just once I wish we could see this happen in a press conference. I mean, the UN was great, but the    press really needs to stop treating this guy like a real leader.

In other news:
RIP Stan Lee. He literally taught me how powerful people should behave.

With great power comes great responsibility.

That was the lesson he taught readers in Spider-Man comics. Now, if only the idiots in Washington DC could learn the same lesson.

When you don't know who to lash out at, do what Billy and Barbie do!

What a mess. Who should we hate the most? The catalyst. Especially the catalyst who knows he is a catalyst. President Baking Soda knows vinegar is just waiting out there for a purpose.  Yep, Baking Soda has a Twitter account.

Hey there! So, drawing comics for free every week is actually hard work--throw me a couple bux on Patreon, wouldja? Thanks! Or just buy me a cuppa joe!

Billy and Barbie are sad about Khashoggi, but for more than you think.

This strip was hard to do because there was so much more I want to say about this. This comic started out as an ultra-violent reaction to the things I saw that were wrong in the world. I thought violence would be a fun/funny way to react to things that you would not normally react to violence with. Then the world met my violence and surpassed it.

 Dude. Khushoggi was apparently dismembered while still alive. As the comic says, we've been heading in this direction for a long time, which is why I have let the violence fall away from the comic over the past few years. Violence should not be the answer to everything that we, as a species use it for. Anger is the easiest of emotions to give into when challenged. But just because it's easy doesn't mean we should just roll with it. We are better than this. 

We just need to remember who we are as a species. We are humans and we are capable of untold horror but we're also capable of untold beauty.

Let's try to focus on that more, huh?

And by the way: Drawing comics for free every week (off and on since 1998!) is actually hard work--throw me a couple bux on Patreon, wouldja? Thanks! Or just buy me a cuppa joe!

Billy and Barbie are about to tell YOU why the media LOVES/HATES @realDonaldTrump

I know I've covered this before but seriously! The only glimmer of hope is that Fox News has stopped live coverage of Trump's Nazi-style rallies due to low ratings. Hopefully this will continue, but I know better than to hope too much.

Hey, thanks for reading!! Please let me know what you think! Come @ me, bro!

SUP! So, drawing comics for free every week is actually hard work--throw me a couple bux on Patreon, wouldja? Thanks! Or just buy me a cuppa joe!
