Sisyphus gets tired

Excellent post

m.g.,

You have gone right to the heart of the sickening situation we now face in this country. We've been taken over by brutal idiots. They act very much like the Taliban, and are equally hard to get rid of.

It seems that stupidity and viciousness are contagious, especially when they pose as god-like virtues. It is just SO much fun to go around casting the first stone, over and over and over.

The result is something like mob rule, with people's worst instincts taking over. Historically, such periods have been limited in duration. Eventually there is a buildup of bad consequences, people get angry, and they throw the bums out.

How long that might take is anyone's guess. Meanwhile, the country faces extremely serious problems, which are rapidly worsening through neglect and malfeasance. As a result, it seems possible that these truly evil people may succeed in destroying the 230-year-old experiment known as the United States of America.

People are taking notice at h

People are taking notice at how the Republicans are driving liberty, freedom, free economy etc. into the ground. It may take a while longer since the democrats seem afraid of taking the reblious path, but it will happen soon, and I can barly wait!

Why slow?

Just curious - maybe something is wrong, but this blog page always seems to move slow - is it because of the operating system? Dunno.

Slowness

A combination of a low SQL server, and performance issues relating to some configurations on the site in this current incarnation.

An upgrade is going to happen soon, which hopefully will address two of the three contributing factors, with the third happening shortly therafter.

Everything also is slowed down drastically by Blogrolling, Bloglines and TTLB. Third-party lists are becoming less and less appealing.
