Most of the time I try to stick to technical topics on this blog, rather than political. However, as this past week has shown we do not have the luxury of being a-political. We have a political system where rampant institutional corruption has been suddenly overshadowed by a new administration that has a complete and total disregard for the rule of law, American citizens, people in need (domestic or foreign), the future of our planet, and the basic facts of reality itself.

This does not bode well for us as a people.
