You're doing it wrong.

As if waking up the day after election day, and realizing that shit really happened, all over again, isn't irritating enough, imagine seeing this on Ye Oulde Facebook notifications tab:

Facebook, you couldn't do it more wrong with a month of planning.  I already know who represents me, and despite various claims to the contrary backed by men with guns, attitude, and impunity, it is, and ever will be, nobody beyond the extent of my own skin.

Indeed... nobody can "represent" me without my consent. And not very well even then. This is, of course, in the same category as "the will of the people..." Which people? Who decides?

Some folks tried to tell me that the "will of the people" is the constitution and BOR... but when asked, all deny having actually signed the thing... and none of them will accept the idea that anyone (like me) can be "allowed" to discard the entire idea as binding on their individual lives.

So... sad that logic and rational thought are so rare...
