It’s Worse Than You Think

2017-08-26

With the pardon of Sheriff Joe Arpaio on August 25, 2017, Don the Con has placed himself beyond the pale of civilized discourse.

At the same time, there are three former generals among Don’s top staff at the White House.  It appears that Don is no longer completely in control of events.  He will not be given the opportunity to start a nuclear war with the press of a button.  He will, however, continue his profoundly illiberal private agenda, which will further divide the country along extreme partisan lines.

I have other things to do than chronicle this descent down the rabbit hole into utter madness.  Stockpiling canned goods is nearly complete.  Enlarging the fallout shelter will be next on my agenda, starting tomorrow.

Did you ever read “Farnham’s Freehold” by Robert Heinlein?  Lesser known than “Stranger in a Strange Land” but equally thought-provoking.
