‘Trump is going to snap’: a rejoinder

Infinite Coincidence

The post I wrote two days ago in the first hour after waking up has proven to be hugely popularand so is generating a lot of responses. Thank you to everyone who has liked, shared and commented so far.I’m endeavouring to reply to all the comments on the site but it’s beginning to geta bit out of hand. I want to be sure in myself that I haven’t misled anyone with what I wrote. In particular I’dhate to be responsible for any sense of complacency. Here are some nagging reservations I have about what I wrote, plus some stuff I missed out.

  1. A lot of people are saying that Pence is worse: more rational, more stable, but with an equally psychotic agenda. Some of the things he stands for and has implemented in relation to women’s rights would make the Taliban nudge each other and raise an eyebrow. He would…

“The Case for Resistance”

Resistance!

Karmic Reaction Blog

By: Randall Kennedy



“There is no common ground to be had with the Trump administration.
Donald J. Trump will be the next president of the United States. That is sobering because he is glaringly unsuited for any significant public office, much less the most important in our country and indeed the world. Nothing about his pre-candidacy record recommends him. To the contrary, it is so lacking in relevant achievement, so marred by embarrassment, that many onlookers thought that his run for the presidency was nothing more than a publicity stunt. Then his campaign itself was so repulsive, so saturated with bigotries of various sorts, so ostentatiously crass, so glaringly demagogic, that it prompted many leading figures in his own party to repudiate him.
The conservative New Hampshire Union Leader refused to endorse Trump, remarking, aptly, that he is “a liar, a bully, a buffoon.” The Dallas Morning News, which had…

“Here’s what we’re not taught [about the Declaration and Constitution]: Those words at the time they were written were blazingly, electrifyingly subversive. If you understand them truly now, they still are. You are not taught – and it is a disgrace that you aren’t – that these men and women were radicals for liberty; that they had a vision of equality that was a slap in the face of what the rest of their world understood to be the unchanging, God-given order of nations; and that they were willing to die to make that desperate vision into a reality for people like us, whom they would never live to see. ”

The First Amendment — Your Protection from Government

SINCE I do not believe in reinventing the wheel., but do recognize when something bears repeating.

Bob Aronson's Viewpoint

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
— The First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution

cartoonThere is no more precious freedom we have than that of free expression. The first amendment to the constitution isn’t telling you what you can do, it is telling the government what they can’t do. The founding fathers believed that the rights in the first amendment were inherent or understood to be true. Those 45 words about twice as long as a standard tweet were written to make sure they could not be taken from you.

The first amendment guarantees five rights.rights

  1. Freedom from a state run religion
  2. Freedom to practice a religion of your choosing or…
