While we were shopping and getting fat during the past few weeks, some really disturbing shit has made the news, greeted mostly by yawns from the public at large. I've just read an[other] analysis of the "CIA Torture Report" and want to rage, curl up into a ball, do bad things to a certain former Vice President [not an actual threat], remove myself from this country, my home... Just read this, and join me in despair. This is the shit we're apparently not just OK with, but which some "human beings" are actively defending as necessary. This is shit that is being done in our names, ffs...

I'm pissed that this report and this issue are already fading into the past - 'old news' that will end up having no effect on our seemingly relentless progress toward a more authoritarian state.

I'm going out for a walk...
