I had planned to avoid political discussion as much as possible. At this stage, with government being utterly compromised and diseased to the point that only euthanasia seems practical, what’s the point of debating Tangerine Caligula’s latest outrage? Looking into my crystal ball, however, I can see that my self-imposed gag order isn’t going to hold.

In preparation for the eventual ranting, let me give you a few key insights into my base positions.

All politicians — 100% of them — are liars, cheats and thieves. Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton, Mitch McConnell the Human Scrotum, Paul Ryan… they are all equally terrible. They are all criminals, bought and paid for by the monied interests who shove dirty hands up each of their asses and puppeteer them. Fuck them all.

Yes, the Circus Peanut IS worse because he ISN’T a politician. He’s a capitalist. A business man. A fucking real estate developerfor fuck’s sake. He has proven once and for all that there is social standing lower, less trustworthy, more reprehensible than mere politician.

Lastly, our democracy is dead. It died decades ago, when the richest 5% began increasing their wealth by orders of magnitude, allowing them to simply purchase elected officials wholesale. Until recently, we live in an oligarchy. That isn’t the result of simple empirical observation; Professors Martin Gilens from Northwestern University and Bejamin Page from Princeton published a data-driven study that finds the same truth.

Of course, the Executive branch is something else; a combination of kleptocracy and kakistocracy.

All of these are things to be discussed in days to come. However, you likely won’t be able to read them once they allow the ISPs to choke off huge swathes of the internet.

When is the meteor coming?

Whatcha think?

It’s so much easier to suggest solutions when you don’t know too much about the problem. — Malcolm Forbes
