As Adele sings, Hello from the other side. I think it is no exaggeration to say that many around the world except in Mother Russia remain shell shocked. Brexit was but treading on a lego, this drumph result is far reaching.
It is good to document things and reflect on how we get to where we are going. For this first post in the Brave New World, I would recommend you, gentle reader, to peruse the National Security Entry-Exit Registration System, currently dormant but actively being recommended to initiate the Moslem register.
This article is an overview of Kansas SoS, Kris Kobach and his love of registering the alien.
Personally I think that it will provide Da’ish fresh propaganda to recruit more jihadis.

The Lion Sleeps Tonight
Faces in the Street
They lie, the men who tell us in a loud decisive tone
That want is here a stranger, and that misery’s unknown;
For where the nearest suburb and the city proper meet
My window-sill is level with the faces in the street —
Drifting past, drifting past,
To the beat of weary feet —
While I sorrow for the owners of those faces in the street.
And cause I have to sorrow, in a land so young and fair,
To see upon those faces stamped the marks of Want and Care;
I look in vain for traces of the fresh and fair and sweet
In sallow, sunken faces that are drifting through the street —
Drifting on, drifting on,
To the scrape of restless feet;
I can sorrow for the owners of the faces in the street.

For ten years I used to click thru a number of websites each day to get a feel where indie thought was at. The past few years I have found that I no longer visit blogs. I know the authors sites on facebook and trust their fans to move things thru twitter. I notice over the past six months that The Agonist has become in the main a weekly catblogging and jukebox site, with the occasional glimpse of Numerian and other writers.
Remember Wonkette? Moar words and glitzy ditzy panels keep that blog alive.
Ian Welsh maintains some rage, also crying for money.
Little Green Footballs is praising Twitters failure to address troll abuse.
How about you gentle reader, what blogs do you read / and or/ comment at?
Wassup? How has the year been, or what are your hopes / aspirations?
