I love politics. I really do. But sometimes, politics is the most infuriating thing in the world. Our country has problems, real problems! It has an energy grid problem! The grid needs to be upgraded as soon as possible! What’s being done about that? Nothing! Isn’t the country woefully unprepared (pdf) for cyberwarfare? What about climate change? Nothing there either? Well, that must be because the country is tackling the urgent climate change issues. It’s not. Then, what the hell is going on in Washington? Wait, that’s right. Our government is fighting over yet another manufactured crisis. I hate it. I really do.
