I used to update this blog regularly with whatever idea or thought stream was bugging me. It seems like a perfect time now; my brain feels like it’s ready to go on strike.
On the news:
Yes. It is election season again. I expect all sorts of posts on social media promoting personalities to continuously pop up on newsfeeds. One can note that this year is another test for this country– a memory test.
I see more than one name with doubtful reputations. Seriously, this country needs some screening. Can we screen them like they were applying for a job?
Thieves vs Politicians (the difference):
When thieves get caught, by a mob of angry people or by the police, they get the crap beat out of them. Once locked up, the wheels of justice slowly turn. Too bad they are not politicians. A degree, charisma and public exposure is what they should all aspire for.
When politicians get caught, or even sentenced, their fans take the role that their lawyers cannot do — make an ass out of themselves without getting paid. Their appeals go beyond what the courts can offer. It is funny how the same people that question existing court rulings are almost the same people wanting a return of the death penalty (good luck with that).
Working from home is still a challenge. Difficult to quit when you do not have to travel back from work. The chance to disengage is lower (but still not enough to make me miss bad traffic). You carry work thoughts all the way to bed.
