Fortunate Son

or: Being Prepared is Stupid


“…the only thing we have to fear is fear itself—nameless, unreasoning, unjustified terror which paralyzes needed efforts to convert retreat into advance. In every dark hour of our national life a leadership of frankness and vigor has met with that understanding and support of the people themselves which is essential to victory.” FDR’s 1st Inaugural Address


Imagine if FDR appeared before Congress on Dec 8, 1941 and told America that the attack on Pearl Harbor was a hoax and now was the time to disband the military forces of the United States.


The administrations of both Bush and Obama left offices and plans in place for just such an emergency as the Trumpvirus for the simple reason that emergencies ALWAYS come. ALWAYS! The Virus-in-Chief deliberately disbanded and ignored said offices and plans because he didn’t like spending on things he wasn’t using. Think about that: seatbelts are a stupid waste of money, life preservers are a stupid waste of money, parachutes are a stupid waste of money...


In January of 2020, the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by the President of the United States and, as a result, more than 200,000 Americans are dead.


As someone once said,”There has to be retribution when you have a crime like that.”

What does is say about the USA that people will still vote for this man to be POTUS? But enough of him, he just makes me want to puke. On a brighter note, I just want to say that as a kid, your works on the Uncanny X-Men were the first comic books I probably bought, and remember them so fondly. I enjoyed the artwork so much and found following artists of the title a bit disappointing. Seeing the covers of Uncanny that you did brings me back to the drug store where we as kids used to walk or bike to hit up the comic and magazine stands. I can hear the Shinobi arcade game playing it's attract music while i spin that rotatable wire comic rack looking for your the next issue of Uncanny. I was bitter when you ended your run on Uncanny. I just saw some of the Uncanny covers when I googled a comic related search and seeing them brought me here. Thank you for your inspiring art as it inspired me.
