Updated: This post originated so long ago, as if it’s been a lifetime since I wrote what was here. Like anything else, things change. We get older, hopefully wiser and better at what we do. I like progress. For vulnerable people living in the United States, our election of 2016 caused what Hunter S. Thomson would call “fear and loathing” among liberals like me. It is felt around the world, making a mockery of democracy on the international stage. As a consequence, I am going through a renewal process. I’m changing what I originally posted here. I’m going to get with the times, these scary new times to write a bit more about what I find to be true. I hope you tune in and drop out and into a vocal swelling of liberalism with me as I pontificate the strongman right-wing leader at the helm and throughout government.
