No I don’t have an alternative Constitution, and to entertain one is to miss the point. We have finished losing battles because we have lost the war. We of the slow-footed conservative trailer park of lost hope are just getting traction with the idea that there may be a fight coming, and it’s already over. This is what defeat looks like. We should be so lucky as to see a boot smashing a human face forever and so forth. Instead we are co-opted into doing it to ourselves for them. We mash our faces into the dirt because that’s the system. Can’t help you at window A, please take a ticket for window B and have a seat. By the time WIndow B tells us to try window A, it’s a different crowd, and they think we’re crazy. Sorry, you don’t have standing. Sorry, you have to win elections. Sorry, the media won’t like it. Sorry, you don’t have standing. This is what defeat tastes like. We will not see a return to the rule of law, a resurgence of a people worthy of self-government, nor the restoration of a country so esteemed in the world that its institutions are aped by even the most tyrannical dictatorships in a bid for legitimacy. I would say kiss it goodbye, plant a tender peck on its cool forehead before the box is closed, but it’s too late for that too. There’s nothing left.

He is a great guy, and still in my prayers. High school sweethearts, man... I'll do my best to let her know there are "people" who are more than "people"... we are friends.
May G-d bless your family, Scott. And please look out for the wonderful friends I made tonight. Karen and Dave, Devin, Jeff, Jeffrey, your brother Jeff, John, Tim, Rock, all and many more.
Thanks for everything.

His argument is damning, and should be read by every thinking person.

And when the justice system has failed or become merely a procedural sham what then?
It's a common conceit among lawyers that our legal system is the justice system - which is not fully true: It's a justice system and a pretty good one at that but it's not the only justice system. So there's an assumption that if the legal system is manipulated and even blocked, then there's simply no recourse at all for those on the receiving end of this treatment and so they'll just accept it. Which is clearly what the above people and their allies seem to believe. Well out of the inertia of trust in the system this is true up to a point - but only up to a point.
But when that trust that justice will actually be delivered is finally broken, stoic acceptance of the jiggered results of a broken system can no longer be counted upon either. Instead you will see a reversion to the older, rougher justice delivery firmware that's embedded in our DNA and it will be ugly. But not necessarily unjust.
Given that people have had their lives destroyed for merely making a bad joke on social media, wearing the wrong shirt, answering a hypothetical question about catering incorrectly, and using the wrong ordering of words in a phrase, not to mention threatened with jail for the act of committing politics, I see no reason that Chisholm, Kluka, Lerner, and Machen who have done far worse should be able to walk the streets and go through life comfortably and carefree.
Don't blame me for this - I wasn't the one who deliberately subverted and broke the system of justice that we had."

My recently-passed friend Scott used the term "Shitteree" often, and I don't know whether I've heard it before... let alone with such frequency. He liked that word, and I'll use it in his honor.
The "barley wine" was suggested by H-Dogg when he heard the theoretical alcohol concentration of the finished beer will be over 10% ABV. Stiff stuff.
We are all going to die, but I hope we all live longer and suffer much less pain than my friend Scott. One bout with cancer fucks up the whole shitteree.
Scott, may the Creator welcome you. Cheers, Prosit, and I'm glad you suffer no longer. Thanks for everything you taught me, and thanks to our Creator for letting me meet you. I hope we'll meet again.

His wife called this evening to inform of his passing last night.
He is pain free, and has met our Creator.
Godspeed, Scott. Rest in peace.

Unease about modernity isn’t necessarily problematic in itself; after all, Christianity and Judaism are also pre-modern faiths, which have many critical things to say about contemporary ideals and mores.

I ask what's up... "you need to change our business arrangement" he says. I ask why... "I have cancer and it's terminal."
I won't speak to the discussion from that point since it's personal and painful and nuanced and too soon.
It's all over, he's been battling for a year, and it's in his brain as well. Dear God/ fuck.
Went to visit at his place last weekend and I'm not pulling punches at the door telling him he looks like shit. He does. Never ever said a word untrue to him and this is true.
Inside we break out three six packs that I brought... one cold and ready, one warm but ready, and one bottled that afternoon. I told him he needed to put a note on the "not ready" to save for Christmas.
He is still Scott, but he can't remember anything.
He's wasted to nothing and he is resigned.
I guess there's a lesson here... maybe it is better to die unexpectedly. I don't know. His Mary is a trouper near as I can tell. I'm sure she's had the very worst of it. They've lived in their house for 28 years, and were 25 when they bought it. He's been sick for a year. It hurts the hell out of me to see my friend like this, but I can't imagine the way it hurts her.
Pray for a miracle.
