01) Trump Declares National Emergency Using “Big Words”


“Trump has declared a national emergency over something he called a hoax a week ago.

The U.S. government’s response to the COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak has been “much, much worse than almost any other country that’s been affected,” Ashish Jha, who runs the Harvard Global Health Institute, told NPR on Thursday. “I still don’t understand why we don’t have extensive testing. Vietnam! Vietnam has tested more people than America has.” Without testing, he added, “you have no idea how extensive the infection is,” and “we have to shut schools, events, and everything down, because that’s the only tool available to us until we get testing back up. It’s been stunning to me how bad the federal response has been.

“Trump can’t admit to his failure as president.

“Stop Glorifying Pedophiles”?…


….

Date: March 14, 2020

We pedophiles are just normal human beings, on a normal human sexual spectrum…We just happen to be at a spot which prefers prepubescent human beings.

I don’t believe taking stock and joy in the good in both life and ourselves, constitutes some unjust glorification.

It’s a simple acceptance of ourselves, and a stand that we belong in this world and matter as human beings…as a part of this world, we are valuable.

I want to know why there is this trend to compare us with “people who want to murder”…because that is just goofy beyond all comprehension.

Murder is objectively injurious, and robbing others of something irreplaceable and finite.

Even then…”wanting to” and doing are not at all the same thing.

…But why would you bring up something so absolutely devastating…when pedophiles don’t even tend to do anything, objectively bad?

This behavior is known as poisoning the well.

It is imposing a false premise upon others.
