It's been two or three years now since I left New York and I do miss it. I'm trying to cajole my SO to someday return but in the meantime a little live streaming helps sooth the pain. Here's a little HTML 5 embedded video showing off what I mean.

This post is more a test of my ability to post HTML 5 embedded videos than share my lament, but why not kill two birds with one stone?

Repealing True Motivations

Now the mentality is above board. Trump's core motivation has only been to repeal Obamacare, period. That is one reason there has been so little care for form or consequences in the effort to overhaul healthcare in the first place. It's never been about the frustration of complicated math, it's only been about erasing the work of a previous administration.

This is just another telltale marker for the executive inadequacies of our commander in chief. He's a fine man, probably, in person, a great showman for sure, a refreshing kicker of the media which we can all appreciate, and effective in the framework of his business - at least half the time. But, he is not suited for governing the affairs of people.

Half and Half Sucks

Honestly I could almost care less whether we live in nation controlled by Republicans or Democrats. I'm so fundamentally disgusted by our cultural assumptions and practices as they relate to social justice and what true freedom really is, I understand that neither party is actually out for either principle in any big way.

Let's face it, both parties are contorting to let corporations master over the affairs and fates of individuals, so why get too jimmied up over the nature of the whip if we aren't going to act over the notion of one.

As an independent I favor at least the hot air of the Democrats who are kinder and find no shame in striving for idealism in the outcomes of human affairs, while appreciating the strong social policies, particularly the "law and order" mantra, of the Republicans. In the best world Dems and progressives would set the agenda, while Republicans would budget and run them.

Where the presidency is concerned, I solely rate the man. I oppose Trump - resist if you will - because he is a bad spirit who thinks nothing of channeling the worst of human sentiments through his political waterwheel for sake of power. Will he make America "great" again? Sure he will. Sociopaths don't weigh themselves down with moral contemplation. Regulations without meaning, which is to say, taking the time to contemplate what those meanings are, are just regulations to be scrapped. I cannot imagine decision making being any easier.

Yet as an executive, as the choice of so many naive Americans, I've been consistently pragmatic about him. Let fools suffer the consequences of not valuing intelligence and diplomacy in their elected leader, yes, but, elected he is.

What I have real trouble dealing with is the half-and-half ongoing nature of our political order that means nothing is getting done. At the end of the day I can adjust to the worldview of any strong winner (again, on the foundation of ceding to its general corruptness). But hoping for true technological and social advances in a country where only half the country can be for them at any given time, is futile and exhausting.
