Somehow, just how I’m not sure , I started thinking long term about the prospect of a conservative Supreme Court. Once I put out the fire on my head, my brain cooled down and my thinking cleared. It helps that more is being reported about it now.
No doubt the 5-4 court will reek social and economic havoc on the country for decades, but if that’s what it takes to end minority rule so f–king be it. It’s obvious we can’t stop Kavanaugh barring a miracle, so it’s time to start the long slog towards ending the sad situation of 18% of mostly rural Americans controlling who guides the ship of state thanks to gerrymandering in some key states. Thinking longterm I see lots of things that are going to happen that this minority cannot control.
I wanted to talk about it somewhere outside the reach of Mark Zuckerberg’s attention grabbing machine, in a place where privacy is respected and maintained and no algorithms sort the order of stories making you continuously feel a bit lost.
It’s a good time to get back to blogging. WordPress has made a lot of good changes. While I was and am happy with what it has become today, there is a lot more coming and soon. I’ve built it so it remains to be seen if they will come. (It also remains to be seen if I can do the tech.)
