Breaking Points

In my life I've been very, very fortunate. I've gotten to points at which I thought I would NEVER make it past without severe damage to my mind and body.

These points may seem trivial to some, but they're an examination of how hard you have to fight at least on a personal level, to make it past those events that you have considered nightmare scenarios. There will be a point afterwords, I promise.

Immigration - not the hill I want to die on

Trump's immigration/deportation exercises are getting a lot of pushback from the liberal community. Frankly, I find myself wanting to feel that this issue is really important, but honestly, I just don't give much of a shit about it. All countries have borders and many of them are far more strict about controlling immigration than the US. I don't see anyone actually advocating open borders, which I could understand at least for the functional consistency of it.

There are good people out there

You might find this hard to believe if you spend all your time watching the news of even perusing the various political forums and soicla media platforms on the internet. There the desire the demonize and label people evil, bad or "deplorable is strong. It can, if you let it, cause you to lose all faith on the kindness of strangers.

Alternative Realities, Deception, and Defiance

So, the POTUS lies about all kinds of things, and is singularly ill-informed.

Okay, but what about the rest of them? The ones who seem to influence the debate about alternative facts.

True or False? The POTUS can count and gave to the nation and the world an accurate count of the revelers who came to the capital to celebrate his inauguration on January 20 last.

Standing Rock: Invasion Happening Right Now

https://livestream.com/unicornriot/events/7046185

The amount of tanks and riot-gear-clad cops and National Guard, etc., is astonishing. There are still people in the camps, and there are concerns for their safety. Helicopters circling. Things are tense.

Please share and witness.

Mainstream media and the 2016 Presidential primaries Part 1

In 2011, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, a Hillary Clinton fan, became head of the Democratic National Committee. In 2012, several months before Obama was even re-elected, Democratic pundits like Mark Shields and Bob Shrum were all over TV, saying that, if Hillary Clinton chose to run in 2016, no Democrat would even run against her. What an extraordinary claim, given that many politicians would dearly love to be President.

Liberals Beware: Lie Down With Dogs, Get Up With Fleas

This essay is really good. Please read the whole thing. I believe the author has an accurate view of what's really going on.

The New York Times is currently engaged in one of its most ambitious projects: Removing a sitting president from office. In fact, Times columnist Nicolas Kristof even said as much in a recent article titled “How Can We Get Rid of Trump?”

Trump vs. the Media

Fake news. Diligent reporting. What's the difference?

The other night I was watching NBC news. They had a segment about how Putin was assembling a dossier of President Trump's strengths and weaknesses, and his psychological makeup. They even interviewed a Russian speaking man who said exactly what they wanted him to say.

Was this fake news? Was it real news?

The Tech Revolution Needs Us

Technology is terrific. Technology is terrible. Or, in a mashup of Dickens with current norms of ahistorical, absolutist proclamations: these are the best of times; these are the worst of times. More accurately, as ecologists have long told us, there is no such thing as a free lunch. Technology is great, but we still gotta eat.

Thanks technology

True liberty extends to all

Utah civil rights attorney Samuel Wolf has responded to a SCOTUS brief filed in the case of Grimm v Gloucester County School District by the Mormon church with an op-ed in the Salt Lake City Tribune. In his editorial Wolfe denies the position that religious freedom is denied when transgender people are accorded rights.
