I can put up with differing points of view, but be prepared to defend your premise; don't just throw something out there without supporting evidence. And don't bother even starting a conversation if you doubt science, believe in flat earth, doubt the moon landing, are opposed to vaccines, or just generally believe in fairytales. Keep an open mind and maybe get off the internet once in a while....

Legal definition: treason
#DumbQuoteOfTheWeek Pennsylvania Republican state Sen. Scott Wagner
"I haven't been in a science class in a long time, but the earth moves closer to the sun every year–you know the rotation of the earth," Wagner said. "We're moving closer to the sun."
He added, "We have more people. You know, humans have warm bodies. So is heat coming off? Things are changing, but I think we are, as a society, doing the best we can."
Short. Sweet. To the point. That's the beauty Dave's iPhone.
That should scare the crap out of you. It's bigger than selling your info for profit; now you can be legally spied on for any and every thing you do.

Ye, the Irish were the wretched
Wednesday, March 15, 2017
Everyone instantly recognizes his name, but most forget that in addition to being a brilliant scientist, he was essentially a refugee. He was a Jew from Germany who came to the US in the 1930s, after being persecuted in his homeland.
Thinking about this, there are two other things about him that may also be relevant today: in spite of being well educated, he was fairly poor; and he lived here for a fairly long period before he got his citizenship.
But that's not all there is to say about the man. Einstein had interests beyond science.
He was a social activist. Of the nazi regime he said "[they] shun popular enlightenment, and more than anything else in the world, fear the influence of men of intellectual independence."
He was a member of the NAACP, and passionate about being against racism. He called racism the "worst disease in the US, that's handed down from generation to generation" and was vocal about it, giving talks on the subject.
Einstein also encouraged socialism and was critical of capitalism, and gave talks on that too. He strongly advocated the idea of a "democratic global government" that would check the power of nation-states in the framework of a world federation.
Keep that in mind. Everyone can and should contribute to society on an intellectual level as well as have a social conscience. Keeping people down or out because they are different or merely poor is not a solution to anything.

I am not a crook
I think it's clear he's a clueless buffoon, and he is Nixon in this case. He profited. He didn't pay taxes. Perhaps he doesn't have any direct intelligence on his rivals through recordings, but those close to him very well may.
Read for yourself....

Stuff that makes me crazy
We don't know, of course, how this will be portrayed, but in keeping with disneys traditional work on social issues, it will probably be subtle.
But they're portraying him as gay! The horror! Boycott Disney!
Never mind that Aladdin had a character in Jafar that many argue was an alduterer! No the problem with that movie focused in it being about a story from the Middle East.
And never mind that Mufassa is killed by Scar. Who cares about a pesky storyline about killing a brother when the word "sex" appears in the stars!
I mean, it's absurd that there's outcry about trivial things, yet nothing about story points that violate what god handed down as law in the 10 commandments.
This is what's wrong with religion. People focus on the wrong aspects. How about following the principles and doing good to your fellow man?

Can you imagine if it was Hillary, rather than Trump?
And meanwhile, he has at least 4 people who had direct ties to Russia, his VP used a private email server that was hacked (and had sensitive information on it), he has an AG who lied under oath, and he has several ongoing scandals - not the least of which are that he got a soldier killed for no real reason, and he has likely violate the emoluments clause for his conflicts of interest.
And yet congress, which has the duty to investigate any and all of these, has decided to simply ignore all of it.
Can you imagine if she had been elected? (oh who am I kidding, that wasn't going to happen! The Russians made sure of that). And had been implicated in any portion of this?
The committees, investigations, and talks of impeachment would have been incessant.
Talk about your double standard.
All I'm asking is that he and his posse be investigated, thoroughly, openly, and without delay. It's time to unravel and undo this. All of it.
