We didn't get a chance to find out the extent of how fucked up it really was.

And yet they've managed to create some kind of moral equivalence between these two groups in people's minds, Tim.

Just that much is ludicrous, and devoutly wished for by psychopaths.

Ran into another Vietnam vet at the grocery store tonight. He says he trades off wanting to shoot himself with wanting to shoot idiots. I'm pretty sure he was speaking colorfully because he spends every winter in Mexico and the rest of the year in Brookings. Other than being old and stove up, he's got it pretty mellow.

The struggle is real. I keep thinking this world is my karma for squandering my potential. It really is as though everything I dreaded "irrationally" as a girl is in full bloom now.

For instance: THIS is your average night in the Hollywood club scene now, which, if you really don't know, is far and away more debauched than ever in the better part of a century, maybe ever in its history.

Yes, any club scene has its seamy side and never too far from the surface, but this is beyond seamy. Way, way beyond that.

Even though it's not all that fun and there are long patches in the weeds, so to speak, this is some vital information you probably never consider, because you don't KNOW about it, when assessing the immigration question... OR the pot question... OR the environmental question... OR anything else on fire in the state of California.

It was worse for me because I don't like this guy, don't want him anywhere near one of my heroes, but I've got to listen to him referring to us as "Cali" and parroting the fucking bogus water usage stats put out by some TOTAL putz forestry "scientist" — when using real and rational numbers is QUITE bad enough — and just an entirely too avid attitude about the militarization of our law enforcement bodies.

Maybe it irks me the most that there IS a calamitous need for it, but it's still painful to my ears, and I think you ought to let your ears be pained to get through this because it's not just California and the stakes are HIGH.

None of us needs any prodding on the problems of drought and environmental hazards and wildlife preservation. We're ON it. But we probably don't know that Fish and Wildlife has gone full-Rambo to keep any kind of lid on the dreaded-by-local-law-enforcement "cartel grows" everywhere in our state because of the apocalyptic levels of damage they are doing.
