Some really good points in this summary.

In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, .... to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the Assistance of Counsel for his defence.

The Senate Confirmation Process is not a criminal prosecution (or at least it shouldn't be), but if the Democrats want to make it one, perhaps they should follow the constitution. The delay tactics and the lack of the accuser confronting him should show this entire thing as another attempt by the Democrats to destroy our Constitution as well as our country.

A "journalist" does not have any additional rights as compared to "non-journalists". Why? Because there is no such categories as "journalist" or "non-journalist".

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.

Note the usage of semi-colons and commas. Semi-colons separate ideas, while the commas separate additional information of the same idea.

Anyone who communicates is part of the "press". The "press" is just a non-vocal method of speech. You are a journalist just as much as anyone on CNN, MSNBC, or FNC.

So when you hear about major media companies asking for "special privileges" because they are part of the "press," then your antennas should go up.

As marketers we should not be focusing on competing against what already exists, but create something that no one is competing against and optimize for it. Our Brand is extremely important to this. And then creating new content follows close behind. If our brand is not unique or we do not have unique content, we are pretty much doomed (unless you can sell it for less than everyone else, which is not realistic, and doomed to fail).

"Ranked Elections" (as compared to run-off elections) such as what is being discussed in Sioux Fall, SD, have some significant issues in my mind.

Let's say 10 candidates are running for Mayor. If no one wins outright, then only those people that voted for the 10th place candidate would have an extra say in the virtual second round of voting? This does not seem like all votes are equal anymore. Then what happens if a third virtual round is needed (which it most likely would be with that many candidates)? Let's say the 9th place candidate has a lot of voters who put the 10th place candidate as their second choice. What happens to their votes? Are these people just left out in the cold with absolutely no say?

The arguments for getting rid of the run-off appear to be two fold.
1) Cost of two elections.
2) Low voter turnout.

I think there can be other ways to lower costs of elections, but if not, we shouldn't eliminate elections!

And as for voter turnout, that is NOT something the government should be trying to accomplish. That is up to the candidates to do. An uninformed vote is worse than a lack of a vote.

Saw a rare red rainbow Sunday night heading home after church. Supposedly they can only happen for a few minutes when the sun rises or sets. This one went all the way across too (although this picture only shows one side of it). Almost as soon as it appeared it was gone and lightning bolts were seen in its place. Then we barely could see anything as the main force of another storm came through.
