Why we haven’t been posting much lately

I just found this article that I missed when it ran on November 3rd, but I think its especially relevant now. Please take a few moments to read it before you continue reading.

There is absolutely no way for this to have been just a few isolated incidents. They stopped beating him when they realized he was an American solder, his entire life is now ruined, this is horrible for him and just think of how much worse things would have been for him had he really been a detainee, like the hundreds of detainees now who haven’t even been charged with anything...

Bill Clinton was just on NPR, listen here:
He had a lot of great things to say.

But paying attention to the world right now is just way to fucking depressing.

We created government to organize things that involve the entire community, like education, health-care, helping the poor, protecting the environment... But now, instead of properly dealing with these important things and more, our resources and tax dollars are being spend on this, in our name, for absolutely no reason.


I just want to hang out with my friends and play video games and read comic books. Move into a cave. Or onto a new planet. And just not be aware of all this. I seriously can’t handle it. I’m sick of trying to change things and not getting anywhere. I’m sick of paying attention and keeping track. It is just so upsetting without doing any good; I’m completely powerless and frustrated.

Stupid Liberals!

Looks like kids in Germany, faced with increasingly liberal parents are rebelling the only way they can. By becoming neo-Nazis.
