The Current State of the US

It’s hard to describe my feelings about the current state of the US.

Anger at the dangerous, incompetent asshole in the White House.
Confused as to how he even made it to that position.
Disbelief that my fellow Americans actually voted for him.
Disappointment in the lawmakers who sit idle and do nothing.
Pride in the many people who are now standing up for what’s right — including right here in Toledo.
Regret that I haven’t joined them at a protest.
Shocked by the injustice.

I wish I could say, “I can’t believe it”, but unfortunately I can.

With all of these emotions, I feel the very least I can do is share information from a fellow blogger at Freethought Blogs, Pervert Justice. Please check out and follow their blog. They have personal stories of what’s really going on in Portland. It’s so important that these stories from the protest are distributed to a large audience so that people know the truth.

I truly believe anger can fuel progress and I know the people speaking out are going to make a difference.

    I highly recommend the recent Frontline episode United States of Conspiracy, which centers around the psychotic (that’s accurate, see below) Alex Jones and his Infowars platform. He got rich peddling ever more outlandish conspiracy nonsense (I refuse to call them theories) to his even more lunatic fan base. An example is a case where a family who’d lost a child in the Sandy Hook shooting became a target for his even more psychotic fans when Jones kept on flogging the nonsense that the shooting was a “false flag” operation. The parents had to go into hiding due to the death threats they were getting, and keep having to relocate frequently as the rabid rabble find them. Jones gets rich, while they get driven into deeper and deeper hiding.
    In a deposition for a lawsuit the parents brought against him, Jones explained (under oath, mind you) that he gets frequent psychotic episodes, which are the source of the conspiracy nonsense.
    WaPo: “First, they lost their children. Then the conspiracy theories started”
    Frontline: “United States of Conspiracy”
