Apparently America has been stuck under a heat dome. I'm not sure because I haven't watched the news at all. Haven't turned on the TV, in fact, in several days. I don't need some weatherman to know which way the wind is blowing, or not.
I'm just sitting here wondering if there's going to be another black out. I doubt it would be as peaceful as the Black Out of 2003. That made me wonder exactly what it would take for some motivated rebels to knock out the power grid to prove any number of points. If the Koch Brothers are making money off all these polluting utility companies, it might be a good idea to knock out the power grid.
Now that I've become convinced that the logical consequence of all the corruption/foolishness in our Corporate State is a rotting infrastructure that no one can afford to maintain and/or repair, I figure we may as well get used to the idea of living on Planet of the Apes. I just wish somebody would kick the process into high gear. I don't want to see any more DC Kabuki or listen to any more speeches from Versailles. Might as well let Bachman be president and get on with it since in a Democracy we're supposed to get the government we deserve.
The trouble is that none of us deserve this bullshit. We can practically count the motherfuckers who do deserve this shit on one hand - that 2% with all the breaks.
I'm not hostile about it (much). But it's hard to focus on the work of making the world a better place when the Owners endlessly fuck with the world.
