A lot of folks seemed to dig (or at least read) my post about how Ant-Man makes The Avengers make more sense. It somehow got seen by a comics radio show and podcast out of Texas, which had me on as the first guest in the first 15 minutes of the show to discuss my theory. You can listen to that episode, #630 of Fanboy Radio, right here.

Also this week, I did a satirical comic about how alien invaders could use the profit motive to win willing accomplices in the despoiling of the Earth.  The same morning that came out, The Baseline Scenario released a post about how when elites are not effectively constrained by governments, nations fall.

I can’t help but think we have already hit that moment in this country. So what’s the point of even worrying about it? If we have crossed the historical point of no return, shouldn’t we just play canasta and watch Game of Thrones while our once great nation burns? It seems that history seems to go a certain way and if you’re an American right now — well, unless you’re an elite, you were just born at a lousy time. Born in time to watch the decline.

In fact, smart people would probably just move to Canada. Not only is America doomed, but global warming is going to make the Mid-Atlantic hot as Georgia. Who wants to live in that? Canada is the place to be in the next 50 years. Let’s all get out ahead of the real estate price spiking.
