Of late, politics has been particularly nasty and overly repetitive. Russia! Russia! Russia! Trump tweeted something. Something was sexist, or racist, or some other thing
All of this is too much. Its headache-inducing. At one point, I could laugh at politics
Today, the amusement has been sucked dry, and replaced with the constant bleating of sheep. Its not funny anymore. Everything is identity politics. Everything. You cant have a glass of milk without someone saying that milk is white, therefore racist. You cant enjoy Chinese takeout without accusations of microaggressions
Allow me to illustrate his point. Heres Obama/Hillary superstar supporter Katy Perry auto-response to a trigger:
Id say shes a little trigger happy. And by the way, There (their, there) are only two ways to spell yours by most English standards, unless youre including yer in the count. But back to the Declination:
Most folks in the world just want to be left alone. And that is precisely what cannot be countenanced these days.
Well, to hell with that. Im going to take a break from politics for at least a few days. Maybe Ill write about whiskey, or technology, or Byzantine history. I dont know.
But no politics.
I highly recommend other folks do the same from time-to-time. This level of politicization cannot be good for anybody.
Indeed, it cannot. Thanks Dystopic, dont mind if I do. I think Ill focus on sun, sand and beaches. Actually, I think Ill hold that thought till tomorrow. Today Im going to the beach. And wait for the sun to set.

There are two ways to spell whiskey. One with and the other without the e.
“Whisky”: Most of the world including Scotland, Japan, Canada, Australia, England, Finland, Germany and India
“Whiskey”: Just the U.S. and Ireland.
