Just a quick note to let you all know of my future plans for the blog and podcast. Starting this month I will be taking on some additional responsibilities, which will reduce the amount of time I have to create weekly podcasts. Therefore I will be scaling back, and will try to release one podcast each month for the foreseeable future. On the flip side, however, I will try to post more often to the blog, with shorter essays and posts that might not necessarily be enough for a whole podcast.

Note: I will be taking a break from podcasting for a few weeks. While there is no shortage of fodder for a discussion about the ongoing decline of our country, I have a day job that needs attention. I will post a few more short and long essays on the blog, so keep checking back for that.

Our nation is run by a bloated bureaucracy that has become so inefficient it cannot carry out its basic functions.
