It doesn't help that the ads are literally calling this "The vote for America's future"; they're building this election up to be the apocalyptic war over the direction of the country for all-time. (As if the country won't just change directions with each presidential election the way it nearly always does). This partisanship is reaching an unsustainable fever-pitch, and bringing out the crazies... or perhaps they aren't crazy. They're just the only ones talking the insanity of our current political discourse to its logical conclusion; if there's no point in dialogue or discourse and the other side is purely evil, then shutting them up my any means possible is the only 'rational' course of action.

That insane proposition is basically the future we're building for ourselves; the outgrowth of this incessant vilifying and vitriol. And, yeah- sadly, while the left wages its wars with words and walkouts, the right tends to contain all the firearm enthusiasts. So, when the left-extremist come out, they go Orwellian... but when the right-extremists come out, they go Kaczynski.*

Either way, we have to find a way to stop feeding the cultural trolls; to get the extremists to go back to their hidey-holes and shadows, instead of sounding the battle-cry that has each of them spurred to action. Politics in America can't be war anymore, because this war is producing actual soldiers and actual casualties.

We need to find a way to talk to each-other again. And we need it badly.



*Also, I got my names mixed up; I googled 'McVeigh,' found out I had the wrong historical figure, and googled 'unabomber' immediately after that to get the right name, so I am guaranteed on some FBI watch-list now...

Just... just stop. Please.


The exceptions we make ourselves in recognizing the humanity of other people. For politics, religion, skin color. The 'enemy' that we allow ourselves to think doesn't deserve dignity, doesn't deserve courtesy; doesn't deserve to be treated the same as we are.

It needs to end.


...Sorry, this is just; more and more, it feels like the world's falling apart- and the response to every tragedy is to re-draw the party-lines darker, more indelibly; to double-down on the hate and division that led to such a tragedy in the first place, to point fingers and assign blame; to splinter and fanctionalize further, and each find out little groups to hate. And I don't see any way to shift the momentum of this lumbering cultural juggernaut; to wake everyone up to what they're doing every day- the environment we create when we decide to relate to our 'opponents' the way that we do in every day matters. Because this- this is what that ugliness grows into. It's just... a little overwhelming sometimes.

We NEED someone that can bring us together. That can unite us and rid us of the rhetoric. Someone that can carry truth in one hand and forgiveness in the other. Whom is stronger than us in the face of adversity and who will lead us toward the best path to move foward. I believe a leader
walks in front of everyone and leads by example... To be the one who destroys any obstacles and paves the way for everyone else.

Today marks 100 years since the end of World War 1. World leaders have gathered in Paris to hear an excellent speech from French president Emanuel Macron about the tragedy of the war, and the need for international peace and cooperation.

Russian and Ukrainian naval vessels exchange fire in Azov Sea

This is pretty skreeonking bad. This morning the Ukranian navy attempted to challenge the ongoing Russian blockade of the Azov sea and the Russians rammed a Ukrainian tugboat. This is a significant escalation, the first time Russian and Ukranian forces have directly and openly fought each other since the crisis began in 2014.

EDIT: Reuters picking it up now
