Oooooooooh!
Obama says: "Don't boo, vote." Lefty bedwetting and chickenlittling reveals the need for an additional admonition: "Don't swoon, vote."

Ink Blot Test
So, I'm lecturing on the Plato's anti-sophistical trilogy of dialogues, Protagoras, Gorgias, and Phaedrus for a few lectures in a row, and yesterday was the second lecture of a series that should be four lectures long once I cap it off with my discussion of...

Pothead
Candidate Gary Johnson reminds us that even though libertarians are just Republican
assholes who like to smoke pot, it'll still be up to Democrats actually to manage to legalize
its medical and recreational use.

Unscientific
Observing actual asshole Trump supporters and reserved Clinton supporters, I must say I think a shy Clinton voter
theory makes more sense to me than the shy Trump voter theory I keep hearing about.

Story
Tagline
"Using Technology to Deepen Democracy, Using Democracy to Ensure Technology Benefits Us All"
Introduction

From Wikipedia: "Dale Carrico (born 1965) is an American critical theorist and rhetorician. He has extensively criticized the commercially-inflected rhetoric of futurology and the prudence of geoengineering. Carrico is a lecturer in the Department of Rhetoric at the University of California at Berkeley, from which he received his PhD. in 2005, and is also a member of the visiting faculty at the San Francisco Art Institute... [He] teaches philosophy, critical theory, and science and technology studies, focusing on the planetarity of both environmental concerns and peer-to-peer media formations [and] writes about the politics of technoscience, developmentalist ideology, futurological subcultures, and the suffusion of public life by marketing norms on his blog, Amor Mundi."
