I’m going to give an unpopular opinion. I am no fan of Trump but a supposed news like site Buzzfeed shouldn’t be posting news by saying we have no idea if this is true or not, we’ll let you decide. Yes, the details are salacious and everyone is getting a good laugh but if “fake news” […]
This is an excellent point and a reason I try to avoid politics when I post to social media. This is also the result of binary political thinking. Something we have seen a lot of this election cycle. http://nypost.com/2016/10/09/youre-ruining-facebook-and-friendships-with-political-rants/

Happy Independence Day everyone (the original #Brexit you guys). If John Adams had his way we would be celebrating on the second of July instead of the fourth because the second was the day congress approved a resolution declaring independence from Britain. With the popularity of the musical of Hamiltion I’ve started revisiting the biographies that I have […]
Has The President Has Usurped The Constitutional Power Of Congress? This is an excellent question and it will be debated on June 8th. The Intelligence Squared debate series is excellent. All debaters are allowed to speak and no one gets shut down. They actually debate ideas and not throw ad homonym attacks at each other. […]
