Exit Obama

19/01/2017 //

I like the outgoing president a lot, but I think it behooves us to remember that a vast surveillance expansion, the kind we tend to worry about when the guy at the top is someone like Trump, happened on his watch, and for all the outrage we muster at the goings-on i Syria, the situation in Yemen is nearly as bad, yet it is blessed and backed by the USA. That said, realpolitik is hard, and whatever setbacks and fuckups Obama has had to contend with, the one thing we know with reasonable certainty is that Trump will be worse. So much, much worse. Sad!
