This isn't a depiction of violence against a Republican--it's just depiction of kindness to a Republican!

Barbie wonders if maybe Trump has something right...?

So, yeah, if he can ignore reality, why can't we? I mean, how do we fight the nonsense Trump and pals are always spewing since logic fails against nonsense? We might need to start fighting crazy with crazy.

 Stay tuned...

Even Baxter the cat knows how bad women have it.

These days I often think about that annoying old curse, "may you live in interesting times." When so many men get called out for sexual harassment or assault, it's both a good thing and terrifying.

Who thought things would get this bad? Not Barbie!

For a bit now, I've been practicing my answer to the inevitable "what were you guys thinking when you elected Trump?" question we'll all be getting from future generations.  Barbie has my answer.  As for why Billy left, Baxter understands better than Billy probably did.  (See last week's comic if you're confused!)

Barbie had her chance to escape this mess!

Read Billy Ballpoint's last appearance in BALLPOINT ADVENTURES here. Sometimes life is like that--you have your chance and you think it couldn't get much worse and then it does but your window has closed. :(

Barbie and Baxter know what all women know...

I mean, I assume this is how women feel. I mean, they MUST have noticed...

WAS there a time before #Trump?

I honestly have trouble remembering the news and life before Trump. And it's only been 9 months! Imagine how things will feel after 4 years of this shit.

Hey #Republicans! What's it gonna take?!?

Seriously--my thought back when we invaded Iraq was that we should just GIVE Saddam Hussein a few billion dollars and tell him to step down. I think he would have gone for it. Saddam never seemed like a true madman and I'm sure, deep down, the Republicans in Congress are at least as reasonable as Saddam Hussein. ;)

Barbie and Baxter wonder why no one believes women...

That's the real shame--we're so far from our own ideal that we've forgotten all about that ideal. Rape should be an unthinkable crime, but for men who commit it and other crimes approaching it, we are too quick to shy away from the horror of it.  We need to be brave enough to believe the woman who claims she is a victim of it. It's like how everyone wants to call Hitler a horrible monster when really he wasn't a monster at all but just a really horrible human being. That's a much more depressing thing to face. We want to deny it because the truth really is really pretty horrible.

Who could be next?

FYI, this is a fixed version of the old post where I put the previous week's date on this week's comic. See why I ask for some financial help? Even the simple stuff takes done wrong because "real" life steals my focus.
