After several years, we concluded that our work was done. Surely the political pendulum would swing back our way after the wreckage that has been the Obama administration. The nation would turn to a Republican candidate who embraced and honored the Constitution, who recognized that the uncontrolled malignancy of the federal government is the biggest threat to the American dream. Secure in this knowledge, I retreated to the Tibetan highlands to begin my pursuit of total consciousness.
Fast forward to two weeks ago. I'm deep in study with the 14th son of the Lama, just about to reach Gunga Galunga...when from far over the mountain tops comes a plea for help, stabbing the darkness
I had no choice but to respond. After a three day burro ride down the mountain, I used my satphone to hastily arrange an extraction by SHEAL team 2. Ten exhausting days of travel (OK, we actually spent 8 of them on a beach in Vanuatu) later, I arrived back at SACSTW headquarters and received the horrifying news.
