Behold Our Karma

Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity ... Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  

What else can I say?  What else is there to say? Sanders supporters can say, I told you so.  I am a Sanders supporter, it goes without saying; but so the fuck what? Never Hillary people can say, we won. To which I say, prove it - now and as time goes by.
We have witnessed the beginning of the end of the two party system, brought about by the arrogance and native carelessness of the political elites.  We are witnessing the fatal embarrassment, and hopefully the demise, of a mainstream media, bloated with money and stagnate of thought.  None to soon, I might add, it all seems to be blowing apart, shaking and crumbling.
In the Tarot deck there is a card called, "The Tower." It represents the war between truth and lies. The tower, the structures we count on, shake and crumble under the weight of our refusal to let go of the latter at the expense of the former. There is a darkness about this card, much like the darkness that is slipping over this country.
To those who voted I say, better luck next time. To those who didn't vote I say, fuck you and may you come to regret that lost vote as bitterly as possible. However, as the religious zealots thank their smug God of vengeance and cruelty, and the bed-wetters who can't adjust to a changing world look to their strong man for the courage they lack, let me say, behold our Karma. It is a whirlwind of our own making, coming upon us with the chill of shock and disbelief. Let us watch and listen, study and learn so that when we pass through it - if we pass through it - we will have stronger brick and mortar with which to build a new tower.
