That's it; I'm out. I've disabled notifications across all social media and where apps are involved I've deleted them. I need to take some time, maybe a very long time, where the anxiety (and bias-bubble) inducing effects of social media aren't working on me constantly.

If you need to reach me, do it by email. If you can't figure out how to do that, ask someone who can. (I will not see notifications if you try to contact me within social media.)

Ohhh, the constant stream of profanity-laced doomsday posting I would be doing if I still posted here.

Probably best that I don't.

Turns out running the same playbook that lost the primary to an inspiring, exciting candidate in your own party, against the (darkly) inspiring, exciting candidate from an opposing party turns out about the same way.

I'm incrementally convinced the only way to beat Trump would've been to put on a better show. I came to admire and respect Hillary a ton over the course of her campaign, but her team did not put on a show. They barely put on a dress rehearsal.

And whether they were with her or against her, whites ultimately tilted in a direction that followed the loudest noise, the biggest fireworks. The enthusiasm gap killed us. Time to start the big bleed-out. Enjoy, America. You've earned it.
