Warning: High Geek

If you're reading this blog, you're probably like me, feeling a weird sense of disconnect and wondering why. You know what I mean, suddenly you're living in a US where it's legal to torture people and hold prisoners indefinitely without charges. Where it's okay to haul people out of line for their skin tone, and invade and occupy a country because some other country pissed us off and we don't dare mess with them because... they're best friends with the dynasty that's in charge. A weird unfamiliar America where people who question the legality/morality of any of this are called traitors, and America-haters.

The weirdest part of the whole experience of living through the last 2-3 years is that many people around you, possibly as many of half the people around you, think this is perfectly normal, natural and what's wrong with you that you don't?

Is it possible? could it be? I strongly suspect that there's been one of those, you know, rifts in the space-time continuum. Like the Alternate Universe where Spock has a beard.

So those of us who feel displaced... maybe we ARE! And back home in the universe that respects the constitution and human rights, there's a whole bunch of crazed war-mongering liberals and progressives calling the leaders there, who won't declare war on the world, wimps and pussies. Who do you suppose is President in the Sane Universe?

And more importantly, how do we get back there?
