Oh boy…and I escape into reading…

Ok, I can (almost) live with the typical Republican crackpot economic “theory” that somehow tax cuts will lead to more jobs. There is a lot of evidence against such claims, but..

Now we’ve gotten to the point where they run fake investigations to cover up genuine evidence of much more serious things.

And we have “our president” tweeting such stupid, dangerous things:

And there are millions and millions (perhaps 30-40 percent of the population) who see such behavior as acceptable or even good.

I live in a very stupid country: millions of citizens cannot distinguish a Dirty Harry movie from reality.

How did we get here? Well, we are still searching for explanations of how many voted for Trump. However one well known hypothesis was fueled by bad data (no, Trump didn’t win every income level, not even every white income level). I still think that white nationalism was a big factor but think that such appeals do not work as well with highly educated voters.

Other stuff:

It was a pretty moon last night.
