Clearing up a few misconceptions

Image
I keep seeing more nonsense being written about HORNDOG on the internet so I wanted to stop the rumor mill:

HORNDOG was never a webcomic. It has only ever been in print.I never self published HORNDOG. Its current publisher is Oriental Studios and its former publisher was Horndog aka Mystic Studios Productions which folded because my investors embezzled money from me.HORNDOG isn't ending nor did it ever end. I have consistently put out comics in print since 2003. Only now another artist is drawing it. That's not the same as the comic ending.I changed my name to McSpadden briefly because I thought it might help sales with the Russian conflict. It didn't.I actually like the new cover design better.The first Oriental logo was done by me and Robbie Allen created the new logo which will soon appear on merchandising.I'm going to launch an Oriental Studios site soon with new publications, new artists, more to come.You can buy Horndog comics here!

I don't want Zack Snyder to be the "Fountainhead" director

Image
Well, it's official: Zack Snyder's next movie is an adaptation of Ayn Rand's The Fountainhead. Here's why this is a bad idea:

The book is a classic, one of the greatest works of fiction written in any language, but especially of the English language. It requires a director of great skill who understands the material. My vote of confidence goes to Jon Favreau, a self-described fan of the book, whose Iron Man films were very Objectivist.

Snyder I've never liked as a director, from the awful remake of DAWN OF THE DEAD to the unethical amoral WATCHMEN, based on a comic book by Alan Moore, who once called Objectivism a "white supremacist" ideology.

It's potentially juicy to make Alan Moore angry by having the director of a film of his work that he publicly opposed further diss him by adapting a Rand novel when Moore has shown nothing but contempt for Rand and Objectivism, but the irony and trolling Moore doesn't justify Snyder's involvement, when …

Roseanne Barr is a product of the racist left

Image
Yesterday, Roseanne Barr tweeted a racist joke comparing a black woman to an ape. Immediately, her popular show was cancelled by ABC. Her critics are right to condemn her tweet as being despicable.

Now here's the problem with the responses to her racist remark: the media, which is predominately left-wing, is referring to her as a conservative when she's not. The left is so quick to proclaim anyone with any bigoted views as being on the right, they ignore evidence of them being on the left.

People keep alluding to her and her character's support of Trump as evidence that she's a conservative. Yet by all evidence, Trump is a leftist president. Trump's policies, including tariffs and fucking tax increases, align with the left, not the right. As for Roseanne, her politics are clearly of the left, though it's often hard to see that since she's insane and has Kanye-levels of foot-in-the-mouth disease.

I think it's good, however, that the media is identifying…

Arizona: Are you f***ing kidding me?

Arizona Republicans are moving to thwart education, to place creationism on the school curriculum is and gut evolution education.

I don't know why evolution is up for debate now. Especially when the alternate theory is "Invisible sky daddy made humans out of clay". How is that science, or a better explanation than evolution? Evolution is clear, concise and fact-based. We looked at the bones and anatomical structure of humans, Neanderthals and apes, and figured it out:

Apes > Neanderthals > Humans.

It's not complicated. At all. It's the simplest scientific fact in the history of science. Climate science is convoluted as fuck, but evolution is so simple to understand.

I shouldn't have to write this to explain that creationism didn't happen.

The clearest possible explanation I can give for why creationism is wrong is this:

Would an all-powerful, all-knowing god create Mike Pence?

Gimme a break. Seriously.

ComicBooks reddit considers atheism hate speech

Image
I was recently suspended from the subreddit r/comicbooks. When asked for an explanation, an administrator lied and claimed that I had committed "hate speech" for posting this link to atheist cartoonist Bosch Fawstin, a former Muslim, talking about how he was banned from Twitter because some thin-skinned fan of Marvel's Ms. Marvel comic book reported him for criticizing the comic,  and more specifically the assertion that the character could have her own movie despite sales being piss-poor:

Twitter, run by leftists, has become an Islamic company, for all intents and purposes. I was just suspended by Twitter for criticizing Marvel’s Muslim superhero comic book, Ms. Marvel. Marvel Comics publishing a pro-islam comic book that completely avoids the reality of jihad is like them publishing a German superhero comic book during World War Two, without mentioning the war going on.
Despite his criticisms being reasonable, this got Fawstin suspended from Twitter.

The problem with M…

Why Ta-Nehisi Coates should be fired from Captain America

Image
Marvel's next writer for Captain America is Ta-Nehisi Coates, a writer with no significant experience in comics. Which of course isn't a qualifier for writing Captain America, of course. I have been in comics professionally for 15 years and I am not qualified to write Captain America. I am not greatly familiar with the comic books and only started the film series with its sequel. I couldn't get a copy of the first movie. I do, however, think a qualifier is that someone who loves America and what it stands for should be writing the comic, not a borderline racist who emphatically hates America, like the person who wrote the following about the firefighters and police who died saving victims of the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001:

“They were not human to me. Black, white, or whatever, they were menaces of nature; they were the fire, the comet, the storm, which could — with no justification — shatter my body.”
Remember that if you are considering buying the upcoming Ca…
