I've been consistent over the years I've published this blog. My message, not about Flatland per se but about America, was summed up in my semi-sardonic post It's Official — The United States Has Turned To Shit.
I meant that.
Just last week I wrote this paragraph—
If America is on the brink of political catastrophe sooner (next week) rather than later, it is because our political and economic elites (of both parties) screwed so many Americans for so long that they made Donald Trump possible. I am not going to document today their corruption, malfeasance and negligence as I have repeatedly done in the past. It is enough to know and remember that our ruling elites have only themselves to blame for creating the situation they fear so much.
I meant that too. Those who read here know I always mean what I say.
Reader idiocracy wonders ...
"I erred on the side of optimism, such as that goes." [I wrote that last night]
This sentence spurred my curiosity Dave, and I genuinely/sincerely (perhaps also naively) would like to know what it was you were optimistic about (nothing stands out to me in recent posts)?
I was "optimistic" in the sense that, apparently unconsciously, I wanted the U.S. to go downhill slowly instead of quickly. But the wolf's at the door now.
For our clueless neo-liberal elites and their lapdog media, the ones who are gnashing their teeth today, I have no sympathy whatsoever. None. Zero. Fuck 'em all.
This is an open thread. Say what you want.
I have nothing else to say.
