This is an important article that should be of interest to anyone that understands the role that a free and independent press should play in a democracy. You don't have to agree with all of it to share it. But please do share it because the folks in the MSM -- the ones that normally promote stories and help them go viral -- will be motivated to bury rather than share this particular piece.

Some people seem confused about free speech. Maybe this will help:

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.



Bad news: had to set up new laptop due to hardware failure on the system I have been abusing for six and a half years.

Good news: Ubuntu 16.0.4.1 installation user experience is flawless. That was a treat; especially enjoyable because I was subjected to Microsoft's super shitty Windows 10 setup process first.

Life is too short to use Windows, people. So stop it. Just. Stop. It.

Every now and then I am forced to deal with the Windows operating system. For those of you using it on purpose, I have a question: WTH/WTF are you thinking?

No need to put up with that crap.

"It's not hackers breaking into your bank account that should scare you; it's the banks themselves."

If you haven't booted the big banks from your life yet, I encourage you to do so. We got rid of #WellsFargo at the first opportunity and work with a highly rated local bank and a credit union. It's quite clear that our government isn't going to reign them in, but nothing is stopping you from doing so.

I tried to read one of those "Demand" letters that students are now sending to college administrations. After a few paragraphs I gave up and decided that watching this video would be a much better use of my time.

As we learned so clearly during Holder's tenure at the Justice Department, intramural "investigations" do not work. They should not be allowed in the institutions that underpin our society and depend on our trust for their credibility.

Krugman parades around for six years cheering an "economic recovery" that saw $80k jobs replaced with $30k jobs, or not at all -- labor force participation currently stands at a 38 year low -- and he can't see the reason for the despair? I can think of two reasons he can't see the obvious; 1) he lives in a self-deceiving fog of ideology, 2) the brim of his enormous asshat restricts his view. If I took 10,000 gallons out of a 20,000 gallon pool and then put 10,000 quarts back in, he'd probably write an Op-Ed casting suspicion on the people that think the pool's not full.
