Action-packed new artwork by Chris Butler! BAM! BOOM! POW!

And now coming at you in glorious Technicolor is - me!  Bam!  Boom!  POW! 

Ain't it awesome?  This is brought to you by the wonderfully talented Chris Butler!  Chris, of course, has brought you many other wonderful artworks of me, but this time I look like I'm really about to unload on the bad guy!  Or maybe it's just someone who forgot to text me back!  >.<

Thank you so much, Chris! 

Oh, by the way - as of this artwork, my costume's cleavage hole is now officially the flat oval a la Power Girl, who lost hers in the reboot of last year.  I know you fanboys were really missing the legendary cleavage hole from PG's costume, so now I've adopted it for myself as a tribute to her iconic costume.  So rest easy, my little nerdlings!  PG's cleavage hole is gone, but not forgotten, thanks to me!  :-)

By the way, there is another Chris Butler artwork coming to you real soon!  Wait until you see it!  It's gonna be a real treat!  :-)

Now available in California: Doctorless surgeries!

Yes my friends, the state that is at the forefront of forward-thinking medical practices, now brings you - doctorless surgeries!  Well, that's if you're getting an abortion....

That's right! The "right to choose" is so holy, so sacrosanct, so vitally important to women's rights that now her medical safety during abortions has been cast aside and compromised so that the pool of abortionists can be expanded!  Whoohoo!

Imagine that, folks.  Strangers who are not doctors can now perform surgeries on women.  These women are still exposed to all the possible dangers and complications that come with any surgery, but now they have the added assurance that a non-doctor will be there to manage it all.  Comforting, isn't it? 

Boy, this is a blast from the past, isn't it?  The dreaded back alley abortions have now moved indoors and have been given the imprimatur of the State to back them up!  Damn, if this isn't chilling you down to your bones in fear, then you just aren't paying attention!  But maybe what I'm about to say will put this into better focus.

What we have here at the state level is most likely going to be what happens everywhere else.  These doctorless abortions will most likely move on to other states, and the compromised medical safety of women everywhere will soon likely expand to the rest of the country!  It's good to see that feminists are looking out for women, isn't it?

However, if this idea catches on, be prepared for this to get even worse; especially if President Obama wins reelection and Obamacare is fully implemented.  There's no way to financially carry out fully all the aspects of Obamacare - and it's just "socialized medicine-lite".  What happens when tax revenues to fund Obamacare run out - and they WILL run out - and hospital budget directors need to find "creative" ways to cut costs?

You got it - thanks to California setting the precedent with their doctorless abortions, other forms of medical procedures will also have the doctor requirement to perform these surgeries suspended or eliminated, because it's cheaper that way!

This is not alarmist talk, my friends; this is just carrying out this line of thinking to its logical conclusions.  Welcome to the Brave New World!  We are no longer just reading about it, we are living it!

Awesome comic page! Me vs. Hazelel!


This vintage-styled comic page is brought to you by the very talented Rick Celis!  Rick has made other artworks of me and Megan, but this one is the first to include his own character, Hazelel!  I seem to be pretty ticked off, but Hazelel looks like she's having fun! Maybe she doesn't have too many opponents that she can duke it out with and can give it right back!   LOL

If I ever were to battle the fiery red-head, it would certainly be a tough battle.  Oddly enough, battling super strength women is harder for me than battling super strength men, because while men are much stronger, they also move very slow compared to how fast I can move.  This is because of all that muscle mass getting in the way.  Super strength women, however, move as fast or almost as fast as I do, so they can dodge more of my punches - and they can land more!  So really, I take more punishment from the ladies than I do the men. 

But I digress.  What an awesome piece of work!  Man, I gotta get a t-shirt made of this!  And a poster!  So what era would you say this is?  40s?  50s?  When were comics 10 cents?  Certainly before my time! X-D

Thanks so much, Rick, on a stunning comic cover!  I love it!

Opining is what I do, folks...

Okay, I just got a note from someone who took offense over my comment about Sandra Fluke; specifically when I said, 

"it's still part of the maturation process (especially by age 30!), learning how to say "no" once in a while, instead of diving into your carnal lusts like wild howler monkeys in heat."

Folks, I opine here, and on FB.  And I make no secret about being conservative while doing it.  It's what I do.  I won't apologize to this person for being offended about my comment above, because this person should know plainly and clearly that I am a conservative.  Not only do mature people learn to control their sexual appetites by age 30, then also learn how to agree to disagree about the issues of the day.  

As an opinion writer, I expect to get disagreement over my views.  If I didn't, then I wouldn't be a good opinion writer! Not only do I expect it, I enjoy disagreements, because I view it as an opportunity to learn and grow as a writer.  Am I perfect?  Hell no!  I'll learn from whatever mistakes I made, and then I move on.  But it won't stop me from taking other chances in the future, because if I become fearful of offending someone, then I lose my effectiveness and my "edge" as a writer.  And I wouldn't keep doing this if I didn't love it.  

So I won't say "I apologize if you're offended."  Instead, I'll say "I'm disappointed that you're offended."  Instead of taking me to task about how offended you are, why not just take me to task over the issue itself?  And I am truly disappointed in this person.  Because this person is a progressive, I expected tolerance and open-mindedness with views that are different from their own views. 

By the way, I stand by what I said.  Fluke went to Georgetown in order to ask for birth control from a Catholic university in order to put them in the position to either violate their views on artificial birth control, or to deny her so that she can cry "Foul!".  She intentionally put Georgetown in a "damned if you do, damned if you don't" position; this despite the fact that she could have gotten her birth control from the local Planned Parenthood, DC's women's health office, or at a public university where they're offered without conflicts.

So Fluke could have gotten her birth control from other sources, or she could have said "Not tonight, honey". more often.  In fact, developing a more mature attitude towards your sexuality means learning how to say no once in awhile.  Don't we have way more than enough of alleged adults in our society with their sexual attitudes stuck in adolescence?  And wouldn't a more mature attitude towards sexuality help prevent the spread of STDs and of unintended pregnancies (and thus, cut down on the number of abortions)?  Isn't that what we all want?

All of the above is what could have come out of this conversation had this person chosen to debate me on this issue rather than take offense over what I said.  "Taking offense" is a coward's tactic to avoid discussing an issue, and it has no place in the arena of free and open debate and discussion.  

I'll keep believing and practicing the art of debate and discussion even if I'm the last person doing so.

You in college in your late 20s or early 30s? Good for you!

I had posted this meme on my FB wall, saying "Srsly, Dems - this woman is your hero; the spokeswoman for your cause?  Sandra Fluke is srsly the best you could do?" 

Anyway, I'd like to make a little clarification, because I know people who are in their late 20s and early 30s and are still in college.  I didn't intend to sound dismissive of those still in college while past the traditional age for college - early 20s, in other words.

I'm just rather puzzled that Sandra Fluke is seen as some sort of hero for demanding that a CATHOLIC college pay for her birth control; a woman who, if she has the financial means of going to a very not-inexpensive university, then she should be able to finance her own birth control rather than demand it from a religious faith whose tenets forbid its usage (going to Georgetown to demand birth control was actually one of the reasons that she went there).  At the very least, she could exercise a little more sexual restraint. I mean, that's what adults do - it's still part of the maturation process (especially by age 30!), learning how to say "no" once in a while, instead of diving into your carnal lusts like wild howler monkeys in heat.

Having said all that, let me say again that if you're in your late 20s or early 30s and are still in college, then I am very happy for you.  And I hope you pursue your desire all the way to graduation day, whether it's your Bachelor's, Master's or Doctorate.  You are living the American dream, my friends, and it's a grand, grand thing, and I couldn't be happier and prouder of you for your persistence.  You are the reason why the US will find its footing again and restore itself back to its grandeur, so Godspeed to you!
