Did anybody else stay up and watch the latest episode of this new new dystopian America show? Last night the orange alien gave his best impression of a human yet. Then the opposition showed some weird hologram from the 1950s as a rebuttal. This is like the best sci-for of the past fifteen years! I gotta find out what it's called.

I did the Monday morning quarterback thing and let my feeds break it down for me this morning...all of which praise Trump for his presidential demeanor and a very successful speech! Even the Guardian, which has all but demanded a revolution for the last couple months, is talking about calm and unity and a new chapter in America.

So...the page has turned. The opposition has surrendered. All hail Trump!

They're building camps as we speak.

Don't worry. We're middle class WASPs. We'll be picked to run the camps for $175k a year plus cushy benefits. You should be happy. Work brings freedom!

So how are we not commenting on Trump's Twitter meltdown this weekend? Stephen King wasn't too far off when he tweeted "Obama is IN THE CLOSET!!! WITH SCISSORS!!!"

So Obama is now involved, according to pre-coffee Trump, in the biggest conspiracy since Watergate, tapping the phones at Trump Tower. DEFEND THE TOWER!!!

WaPo very keenly points out that this was a distraction from the Sessions probe. And it worked.

But what's working even better is that...we're tired. The revolution sister-thread in this forum drops away, our front page articles turn back to fantasy. We have turned off and dropped out...as predicted.

Well, because it's exhausting. Every day is a non-stop barrage of insanity at which our systemic institutions just shrug their collective shoulders. I tried to keep up every day and thought I wa going to go insane myself. Now, I read the news two or three times a week unless something totally fucking bonkers comes through. (Which seems to be every day.)

The side of it that no one really talks about is that Trump isn't considered legitimate so I think most people are just like. "He'll be out in four years." Those "March 4 Trump" rallies were laughably pathetic. If that's what fascism in America looks like, well, Hitler's place in history is safe. The ICE raids are scary, but even their the judiciary is stepping in on the large percentage of them.

It's a bad joke. I think the longer it goes on, the more it'll just be an embarrassment we all try to get beyond. Even Reagan was little more than a punchline at the end.

Enjoy, faggots!
There will come a day for every man when he will relish the prospect of eating his own shit. That day has yet to come for me.

So The Circus comes back on Sunday.

First of all, everyone should have watched the first season because it basically explained how Hillary would lose and Trump would win two episodes in.

This second season follows "Trump's America" and will probably also perfectly explain every lingering question and fear we still have.


It's a great show. Showtime, Sunday night. And season one is streaming everywhere. The best analysis of modern politics you can get.

I don't know if this is part of the problem, but nobody in L.A. wastes a whole lot of mind power thinking about Trump. They're *all* about Cal-Exit which since I'm reading Civil War story right now, is eerily similar to the succession screaming of the lower south after Lincoln's election. We really have been through all this before. We're just too ignorant of history to know it.

Anyway, our Lyft driver laid out his Cal-Exit prediction (prophecy) that was so mind bogglingly insane, it might actually be genius: California succeeds in tandem with Oregon and Colorado. They convince Washington to go along too and seek assistance from Canada is setting up their new country.  Colorado and California squeeze in Nevada and Utah, and then they make a play for Arizona and New Mexico. Only this guy had all the details worked out, down to tax base and establishing an independent military. (Though it all sounds like we'd end up with a Fort Sumter situation on our hands.)

Then he said none of it really mattered because the robots would overpower us in twenty years anyway.

Cal-Exit (and that plan your Lyft driver outlined) has existed, almost word for word with minor geographical changes appropriate for the time periods, since Aaron Burr's day.

More interesting is his last comment -- the Church of the Singularity. Which is an actual organization, based in Silicon Valley.

It was entertaining, if not a little scary.

I was impressed how convinced this guy was that California cold easily whether the storm of having all federal funds and support immediately withdrawn. He claims Jerry Brown has secret been planning for this shit since the first time he was elected.

And he was sure AI will wipe us out, and he was driving about 75 mph in thick traffic on the 405.
