God Save The Queen

I’m just here to chime in about the Royal Wedding.

… and how abhorrent it is that this will be a stunningly expensive affair that will undoubtedly be a constant news story until it happens. Meanwhile, looking to save £5,000, Britain’s “high society” types decided it was worth the risk for an incident like 71 people—families, women and kids—to burn alive.

(I’d never outright say that if Grenfell Tower had been a private, multi-billion dollar apartment complex and not public housing they may have used fire-resistant walls, because that would just be outrageous, but somehow I doubt Harry and Megan are going to have to worry about anywhere they choose to live being engulfed by flames.)

There Are No Words

Try as I might, I just cannot find any way to properly describe these days. We are knee-deep in Accelerationism and we’ve about passed the point where our established, pre-digital languages no longer have the ability to easily (or even fully) represent some of the farcical circumstances our minute-to-minute experiences now endure.

Political hypocrisy is nothing new, but never has the government been so brash about which interests are truly being represented. The nominee for deputy director of the US Census Bureau thinks competitive elections are bad. The nominee to regulate the Department of Health and Human Services is under investigation for price-gouging insulin. The ex-Verizon lobbyist and current FCC chairman, days from voting to repeal Net Neutrality, is also trying to stop states from setting up their own individual Net Neutrality laws.

And this is only the news from this week. And it’s Wednesday.

The Dumpster is On Fire

Chances are, if you get punched in the face, you know why. If you don’t, you’ll probably exclaim something along the lines of, “What the hell did you do that for?” Maybe the person hitting you will tell you. Maybe they will just hit you again, at which point it’s time to decide if you’re going to fight back. For a brief period after liberal America was punched in the face by the 2016 election, this was a chance for some honest debate. Yet for as many people, both on and off the screen, asking Why?, it seemed nobody actually wanted to talk about the real issues facing America that caused this sort of voter revolt.

Instead, time passed and the liberal media decided to point the finger at Russia.1 This is quite handy, considering the fault primarily rests in our national discourse and the incompetent political class that stops short of acting in any representational—or even responsible—manner.

None of this is surprising to me, however it has been demoralizing enough to which I can barely be entertained by political conversation anymore.

Excuse the mess

While preparing for a full launch in 2018, the site is currently being re-built on both the front- and back-end. Until the new year, various sections will begin to appear and details will be refined day-to-day. Nothing public should be too out of whack, so if something looks off feel free to contact about it.

Thanks for your patience; the blog will be updated as well as expanded in terms of archive recovery. In the meantime you can also follow on IG.
