Yes. It is about those things.
I'm so sorry. Once the Thread begins, the comic is ...
We are a stunned, disappointed and frightened people.
Root Cause Analysis is useful and we need some. (We have none.)
We should be finding a way of NEVER making That mistake, again.
What we are doing is Blame. We are so easily led. Blame comes so easy.

How do you know that's a fact?
Yeah,.. like..., totally.
The NSA and HomeLand will see it.

Huh? I find some comfort in that sentence.
Then I remember, Trump will Not be running things.
Some people you and I do not know Will Be!

He's already walked back on the denial of entry to Muslims. But as I said above...at this point there's not much left to do but put hope in his dishonesty and see what he does if the electoral college confirms him. Hopefully he walks back on climate change as well; the future is wide open and horrifyingly full of possibility.
there's not much left to do but put hope in his dishonesty!
(waaa!) I can't play the blame game.
I'm, just, too stunned, again.

You realize that we're in a pretty fucked up place when the only way you can defend voting for someone is by claiming he's so dishonest he won't do any of the terrible things he said he'd do, right?
Like, I don't even know how to begin untangling that Gordian knot.
I am so sorry you are needed to spend your talents this way.
I'm, just, so sorry.
Somewhere, Peace and Friendship (better than Facebook) between the US and Russia came up.
umm...Yes. That does seem like a pretty good idea, to me. (don't yell at me! I've known honorable, educated, house broken Russians.)

of those strange white people that live so far away.
I don't know how much this...hagiography is to be believed, but if it shows his true underlying motivation for his regime's actions through the years (and I think it does), it might be possible that he would accept the end of his regime if it was replaced by another which maintained stability within Russia and took care of Russians (in the nationality sense, not the ethnic sense).
There are so many stories to tell.
We listen and tell stories that touch us.
The story I heard:
To our community members from far away;
Please be patient with us.
This has been difficult.
Life is, just, an exchange of electrons; It is up to us to give it meaning.
We are all in The Gutter.
Some of us see The Gutter.
Some of us see The Stars.

Those that want to Know; Know.
Those that do not Know; Don't tell them.
They do terrible things to people that Tell Them.
