We Need Justice

“You are very kind, I said; and would you have the goodness also to inform me, whether you think that a state, or an army, or a band of robbers and thieves, or any other gang of evil-doers could act at all if they injured one another? “ “No indeed, he said, they could not.” “But if they abstained from injuring one another, then they might act together better?” [Read More]

How The Last Four Years Should Have Gone

“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.” — Marcus Aurelius 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. [Read More]

We did it! We left Tyranny as a choice

We did it! We left Tyranny as a choice. 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. “Facepalm” by Fettlaus is licensed under CC BY-NC 2.0 Copy 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? [Read More]

The American Nightmare

The American Dream has always been an unachievable ideal. Prosperity is never evenly distributed. Even without it being achieved it is useful. Without the ideal to measure against, it’s difficult to tell when we’ve strayed. All of this is moot if we don’t agree on what the Dream *is*. Do you see the difference? President Trump is talking about the opportunity of anyone to succeed while Adams was talking about the the opportunity of everyone to succeed. [Read More]

How To Regain Order

Our government has been broken for a long time. The GOP has told us we cannot expect accountability at the top, so it’s time to go after those who follow illegal orders. It did not start with Trump. I think most of us are aware that special interest groups have been pushing things in the favor of business for a very long time. Regardless of best intentions, the government has been helping the rich squeeze the poor for decades through business friendly policies. [Read More]

Our Government Is Our History Violently Forced Upon Our Present

At any given moment of our lives, we have choices which we can make within the bounds set by all of history. Our knowledge and our character influence brought us to this point, as well as infinite other factors. What options available to us in this moment are set and unchangeable. We can do what we know is right, or we can make a different choice. “Bronze portrait bust of the emperor Gaius (Caligula)” is licensed under CC0 1. [Read More]

Right Wing Authoritarianism

“Fascism in power is a compound, a powerful amalgam of different but marriageable conservative, national-socialist and radical Right ingredients, bonded together by common enemies and common passions for a regenerated, energized, and purified nation at whatever cost to free institutions and the rule of law…Fascism in action looks much more like a network of relationships than a fixed essence.” -- Robert O Paxton — What Is Fascism? I’m currently reading “A Warning” by Anonymous, and I’m amazed at the level of lack of self-awareness. [Read More]

Representative Doug Collins, you’re intellectually dishonest.

I’m listening to you opine on impeachment. You start from a position of ignorance, likely by choice. Let’s look at why it does not surprise me that the Democrats were talking about impeachment from day one, and why they are pushing impeachment now. This is from Donald Trump in 2015 during the Republican Primary. Q: You’ve also supported a host of other liberal policies, you’ve also donated to several Democratic candidates, Hillary Clinton included, Nancy Pelosi. [Read More]

A Case For Immediate Impeachment

Impeach Now — Part 5 — Fascism

I’m going to spell out why Donald Trump needs to be impeached immediately. FASCISM At the risk of losing readers before they even begin, we need a detailed talk about Fascism. This area needs a *lot* of detail, so I’m going to break it into a few segments. So, to start with, what is Fascism? Some people start with the dictionary, and it’s as good a place as any.
