The GOP arguments together enable tyranny

Over the last few years, the GOP have argued for multiple things which must be publicly challenged. Accepting them without a strong public challenge is a mistake we keep making.

These topics should be addressed head on. Disagreement of these core questions explains certain choices that I would argue are both illegal and unacceptable.

The President is above the law


That would be literally impossible

Our senses are limited.

Our memory is lossy.

Our understandings are flawed.

Our biases are heavily slanted in favor of ourselves, in a world with billions of individuals.

Our bodies exist in shared physical space.

Our minds exist in places where taking the last slice of pizza could be unforgivable.

Over a lifetime, people learn how the “world works” based upon their own personal experiences.

Our individual understanding is unique.

We each see a slice of a much larger whole, often with bad data. Sometimes we’re targeted by intentional disinformation, or propaganda intended to change our spending habits. Or worse.

We exist in something we couldn’t possibly comprehend.

But we think we understand.


“Objective judgment, now, at this very moment. Unselfish action, now, at this very moment. Willing acceptance-now, at this very moment-of all external events. That’s all you need.”

The only time to act is Now.

This is always true.

From the moment Donald J. Trump became unfit for office, removal from office should have been the number one priority of every American who cares about our country.

Why?

Look around us. See the dystopia.

That includes every Representative with an obligation to impeach, to every Senator with an obligation to convict, to any officer given the opportunity to…


Last night I asked Jim McGovern to pass along this letter to Josh Hawley’s office.

The Honorable Josh Hawley
Cc: The Honorable Jim McGovern

In your Twitter exchange with Wal*Mart, you made some great points about their exploitative behavior. I’m hoping this may be the start of some common ground between your vision of our country and my own.

I believe that it is unreasonable for our overburdened social programs to have picking up the responsibilities of employers. …


A house divided against itself, cannot stand


Let’s see how badly it blows up in our faces.

Is Fascism an acceptable choice in America? I believe that depends on if we accept it or not.

We accepted it.

So what now?

Well, we wasted the Mueller Report, and the crimes it contains.

Attempting to impeach on a report that came out in 2019 will come across hollow, and will bring up the obvious question of “Why didn’t the Democrats do anything with this at the time?”

The actual impeachment was narrow, not covering most of what he has done wrong.

The GOP blocked discovery, which is critical for the House of Representatives to be a check on…


Do you have a website for your small business?

How much do you pay for it a month?

If you have a fairly simple website, then there’s a good chance you don’t need to pay monthly charges at all.

Let’s look at some of your potential existing costs.

Hosting

Your website is likely hosted on someone else’s computer, using their bandwidth. These days it’s usually a virtual server, meaning that you’re using a slice of physical hardware. One physical computer can host a large number of virtual servers, allowing a hosting provider to more efficiently host a large number of sites.
