Hey Factory Fans!
What a crazy couple of days. Already I’m discombobulated. I posted Rewritten Headlines today at Super Frat. (Look for the Thursday strip tomorrow.)
I know there are a lot of upset, angry people out there, but look— I’ve been to my share of anti-war protests and the problem has always been that they try to do too much. Instead of just ending war, the protest dilutes itself into trying to end hunger, promote civil rights, stopping violence against women— It becomes way too broad. Protesting Trump just because he’s Trump, is not a movement or very smart. You have to protest policies, events, laws, actions— Trump hasn’t actually done anything yet. And any of his past crimes as a private citizen, well, that was up to law enforcement to take care of years ago, if in fact he did anything illegal.
As a Libertarian, I’m super against the Federal Reserve. But I’m not just going to continually protest it. When the Fed does something more positive for the economy (like stop Quantitative Easing, ie printing money) that’s not the time for me to protest. Wait for Trump to screw up, THEN protest it. If he does something good (like he may actually normalize relations with Russia) then give him credit. Sends a message for what we want and don’t want.
Okay, soapbox over.
Validation is new.
Xcelsior has updated Chevalier, G.A.A.K. and The Continentals.
And the Quote of the Day is from Paul Watson:
“Protesting is fundamentally submissive.”
