I’m almost done with EMT school, and I can verify this 100%. We don’t give a shit what you’ve taken or how illegal it may be. We want to know what and how much so we can save your ass. Unless its directly related to a crime scene in some way, we don’t tell. 

It makes me enraged and also deeply saddened that the police state has become so entwined with every aspect of our lives that people are afraid to tell the truth to people trying to render them with emergency care. We’ve broken ourselves.

Boost because everyone should know!!!

My uncle was an EMT and I can verify this is true.

It’s a hundred percent true the only time police will be involved Is if you have endangered the lives of another adult or child. Until that happens you will not get in trouble, your life means more to a doctor than the mistakes you made to put yourself in that position

tarhaun asked: Hello once again Mr. Oeming. I just finished reading issues 8-11 of The Victories and they were phenomenal. I've become more and more disenfranchised with the big two as they've become more brand focused and this series has become such a relief for me because its so personal and honest. I love the fact that its completely and utterly unpredictable. The twist at #11 surprised me and excites me for the conclusion of the series. Keep up the good work!

oeming:

Thanks! So glad you’ve enjoyed the Victories! help us spread the word, the entire series comes to an end, and I’m hoping a satisfying end with issue 15. I’m also glad you like it because it’s so different than the Marvel/DC hero books. Thats what I wanted to do- something different.

My night last night.

These images and videos coming out of Gaza. So many dead and severely injured children. Panicked men frantically digging babies out from under rubble. Mothers howling. These are the things we usually see after a massive natural disaster. Our hearts collectively break. Afterwards we implore one another to help, to donate to the Red Cross, to do anything to help.

quasi // our happiness is guaranteed 

orbiting pods, underwater domes.
we fill our tanks with oxygen to step outside our homes. 
once it was hard, now it’s just routine.
i can’t tell the difference between people and machine.

and love was a problem for our ancestors.
it’s not such a problem anymore.
breeding as a science proved it has no use at all.
and it mostly disappeared when we eliminated war. 

there’s comfort and control, it’s safe for you and me.
news from the surface shows how hard life there can be.
why live in danger? why live with pain?
people on the surface find it hard to explain.

and every little thing is strictly monitored.
we’re getting everything we need.
fed by IV, we rarely need to sleep.
there’s no pointless dreaming
and our happiness is guaranteed. 

First track of one my favorite cds by one of my favorite bands.

excellent.

The Wrong Side of History

There was a small incident that occurred when I was at the CAKE comics festival a few weeks back: basically my friend Barry pointed out what seemed to be a guy with a gun inside the convention hall - which caused me to have a few moments of WTF panic, before he seemingly disappeared - and it prompted me to write this little comic.

Mike Dawson is the author of the graphic novel Angie Bongiolatti, a story about sex, socialism, and online learning.

1) why is this tagged marriage equality?

2) You have an irrational fear of firearms. 

3) You’re a sexist

4) You get angry over some really dumb stuff, let me tell you.

Stupid comic and a stupid opinion

Your comic is bad and you should feel bad.

"Right to not be terrified." What? Show me where that is written down.

Right in the bill of “muh feelings”

Fear of strangers who walk into public places holding guns isn’t irrational. It is unquestionably the most rational response possible. Gun people and their posturing about masculinity when it comes to this stuff are missing the point.


Ultimately it doesn’t matter whether you feel afraid or not. If you don’t know the person, you don’t know their intentions.

If I feel fear and you don’t - it makes no difference. If the stranger intends no harm, then we’re both in the clear. If the person plans on shooting up the place, we both suffer. Our feelings towards the gun are irrelevant.

The most common response I’ve gotten to this comic (here and elsewhere) from people who disagree with me, is that my feelings about guns make me less masculine.

This might become it’s own comic, but just to put it out there: I don’t care whether or not you think I’m manly or not, or even if I am less manly because of how I feel. I think it’s a childish way to look at things.

Unfortunately, however, it’s the lens through which the issue seems to be mostly examined through. And I think it’s this insistence on framing it as a question of masculinity is what makes it all so toxic.

People on my side of the fence can do better in this regard. The most common retort I see from anti-gun people when it comes to them encountering the enthusiasts is that the gun-nut is “compensating for something”. The gun is a penis substitute. Clearly there’s something the gun guy feels insecure about. Therefore, what’s not explicitly stated, but implied is that it’s the gun-control guy who’s the real man, because he doesn’t need to buy his penis in the sports aisle at Walmart.

But why is that better? It’s still placing the premium on manliness. It still diminishes the non-masculine, suggests they aren’t as worthy, implies that they are deficient. It still makes masculinity the primary value in the center of the debate.

The question isn’t about who the Real Men are, it’s are there reasonable things that can be done to try and reduce the number of gun deaths that happen in this country every day, every week and every year. I think there are, but as I’m stating in the comic, people who share my opinion are losing the fight. My hope is that in ten, twenty years, we will have seen that change.

Please be sure to SHARE this one! “On Tuesday, Cruz filed an amendment to the Bipartisan Sportsmen’s Act of 2014 (S. 2363) to force the federal government to sell off a significant portion of the country’s most prized lands in the West.

The amendment would prohibit the federal government from owning more than 50 percent of any land within one state, and requires the government to transfer the excess land to the states or sell it to the highest bidder.
 Federal lands make up one-fifth of the nation’s landmass and over 50 percent of the land Nevada, Utah, Idaho, Oregon and Alaska. Under Cruz’s proposal, these states, which are home to some of the country’s most beloved national parks, forests, wildlife areas and iconic natural resources, would be forced to either pass the costs of managing these lands along to state taxpayers or, more likely, give them away or sell them off for mining, drilling, and logging.”
