Been pretty bad lately, huh? It’s been hard to keep up, to keep my feelings in the right place, and my heart open to learning. I am deeply, deeply against any fascism, especially when it’s clear now that the United States is a fascist state. I will write more about that soon. I have opinions about local organizing, I have books to recommend, I have links to people smarter than I am.

I woke up today to the news that the only good candidate for governor in West Virginia has lost the nomination. I am baffled at the willingness of West Virginians to vote against their best interest. What did Salango have to offer? Did he have well-developed plans, or did he have Joe Manchin’s support, or did he have a sports complex named after him? Will he pull a Jim Justice and declare himself a Republican immediately after inauguration?
