The Watch

The Watch is concerned about the increasing pressure towards feudalism in the United States from corporations, social regressives, warmongers, and the media. We also are concerned with future history concerning our current times, as non-truths which are “widely reported” become the basis for completely false narratives.

Debacle

This "outcome" is about the worst anyone could hope for. Even a clear Bush win would have been preferable. Now more bullshit, lawyers, courts, provisional ballots. I don't have the stomach for it. I think I'm going to have to quit caring for quite a long time and go cold turkey on the news. What was once a pretty nice democracy/representative republic has been turned into a plutocracy/kleptocracy/theocracy.

The specter of black box voting has again reared its head. We are to believe, somehow, that 20 million or more Americans voted in this election than the last one, and that they voted overwhelmingly in favor of the incumbent? That people came out in record numbers, waited in lines for hours and hours in Florida alone, only to give Bush a ten point advantage in that state? Someone needs to check the exit polling data for those states that have electronic voting with no paper trail and compare it to those states that do. This process has been befouled and cannot be trusted. I simply cannot believe the numbers being reported for Florida, which had a Kerry lead going into the vote (and a huge Kerry margin coming out of early voting), swung to a 10 point lead for Bush. It defies rationality, and not only because it is not the outcome I would have hoped for.

Take care of yourselves, all of you. I hope you each find joy and fulfillment in your lives personally. Thanks for letting me vent from time to time.
