What am I doing here?

Malcom's got questions. Me too: "Readers, if you look at my early archives you’ll see that I used to explain a lot of things in here that had nothing at all to do with political matters. I’m now so very deeply sick of writing and arguing about politics and decline — sick of picking unwinnable fights, preaching to the choir, alienating old friends, changing nobody’s mind about anything, and all the while making myself socially radioactive, that I might just go back, at least mostly, to other things." – waka waka waka

Your Say

Half full?

Half empty?

Nah, wrong size glass.

I know of at least 6 other long term bloggers that have done the same.

They moved to Galt's Gulch, metaphorically speaking.

This is the first I've seen this blog. He is very good- in the same league as David Warren. And he articulated perfectly the rage, and frustration that I myself feel when I spend any time looking at the world around me. And that "world around me" contracts a little day by day. Now I don't have to even look at the news. I can see the decline coming down hard and fast in the town I've lived in for over 50 years. It's at my doorstep. I engage in selective denial as much as I can, but that too is an effort. So you do your footwork, say your prayers and try to leave the rest up to God. You try..
