I am fairly active on Google+, and as you may have noticed I like to discuss many political, technological, scientific and other matters. I generally encourage others to join in. However, here is something you should keep in mind for my stream:

If you want to make an argument and cite a YouTube video in support of your claims, I will not watch it.

This is because using a YouTube video to support your claims forces the other people in the discussion (including me) to consume a lengthy piece of media without any prior indication of its quality - I only have your word that the video actually contains useful information or is good at all. I can speed-read text articles, jump to the relevant bits and do Google searches of key phrases and figures mentioned therein, but with YouTube videos I either have to jump around a lot in the hopes of finding the relevant information (hoping that I haven't missed anything relevant) or be forced to watch it all from the beginning - and that may be minutes or even hours of my life wasted that I won't get back. There is too much bullshit on YouTube as it is - and it's much harder to sort it out in advance than with text articles.

The same goes for podcasts. I may be willing to watch videos or listen to podcasts recommended to me by people whose opinions and knowledge I trust, but that list of people is unlikely to include You, Random Internet Stranger who dropped by for an argument.

So give me some text citations, or don't bother.

You absolutely must read this account of Scaramucci leaking to a reporter.

"Donald Trump and his advisers have created an administration in which there is no way to get the president’s attention, or to resolve problems, through normal channels.

The only way to make sure an issue will get any attention whatsoever — much less have a prayer of actually getting fixed — is to leak."

It's a tough choice.

Some history.

Okay, here is my prediction:

When, not if, Trump fires Sessions, he will claim he did so because Sessions was nasty to gay people.
