I woke up feeling like the only people who haven't wasted their life are the amoral, venal rat-f*ckers who have successfully wrecked the country.
@pzmyers That's a very good way to put it.
@pzmyers increasingly seems to me like corruption is at the root of it all. "lobbyists" paying money to politicians is straight up corruption, and there shouldn't be sex offenders sitting in the highest court of the land (there's already at least one)
@pzmyers Honestly, this is why I stopped being a progressive, and started being an anarcho-communist, around 2001. Not that it's been a whole lot more effective, but at least I'm not surprised by things anymore.
