2005 Jan 25

On R's advice (as you can see, I am very suggestible), I headed up to the Central Coast and am hanging around Cambria and vicinity (which includes such places as Cayucos, San Simeon, Morro Bay, San Luis Obispo, Atascadero, Templeton, and Paso Robles, among others.) Mostly, I just want to stare at the sea. (There is clearly something very wrong with me.)

fascism declared in america

So what has really twisted my mind is the fact that habeas corpus has been suspended and the Authorities can basically disappear people, just like in corrupt developing countries. I really didn’t think I would see the Republic of the United States of America fall within my lifetime, but I guess I was just in denial.

While I had stay at work all night until the morning, I really didn't do much besides get Mephisto up and running again.

lack of focus

I seriously haven't been able to concentrate on anything today. I wonder if I just had way too much caffeine today. Or maybe I still haven't recovered from sleeping only for four hours Sunday night. Whatever the reason, it doesn't look like I'll be writing anything substantive tonight.

BoBs and PUMAs

There is definitely a contingent of Sanderistas who were never Democrats and who will never vote for Clinton, very similar to the PUMAs who refused to vote for Obama. Clinton will never win them over.

Farewell, Debbie Wasserman Schultz

Honestly, the ousting of DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz was long overdue, well before Sanders started his campaign. It would've been only a matter of time before she ran the Democratic Party into the ground with her inept ground game and her active alienation of significant portions of the party membership. I can't help feel that if someone else more inspiring and diplomatic were at the helm, we might not have done as badly in 2012 and 2014.1
