    getting my goat is looking stupid as an American. I'm sick and tired of this non-trivial minority of insane white men ruining our collective futures over their inability to get on with the 21st century. We're beyond 30 years of this shit since Reagan. Who among us doesn't start believing that the strength of the country is sapped beyond its capacity to endure?

    These fuckers are intent on giving the country to the corporatist oligarchs and leave the place looking like Somalia. Because "freedom." It's absolutely depressing. And any long-term view is exceptionally dim.

      Maybe I've just given up and surrendered to the dark side for today.

      Maybe tomorrow I'll feel differently.

      My current mindset has an unfamiliar texture to it, though.  Haven't felt this -- hopeless?  unhopeful?  out of giveashitedness? -- in awhile.

      During the middle of the Bush years, I warned folks: no, we are not anywhere near the bottom of the barrel.  The Cheney administration accelerated our descent to the bottom at near terminal velocity speed, but we were still quite aways from the bottom.

      I'm getting an itchy feeling that we're getting close, and no one in power can find the ripcord to slow the descent.  It's gonna be a full on gravitational splatter when we reach the bottom, not a controlled landing.
