01) The Obvious Solution to The Issue of “Offensive” Statues and Monuments

“Let the group responsible for paying for upkeep decide. Any new monuments or statues should come up for a democratic vote.”

Much the same can be said about people who protest Child Love, Teen Love, BoyLove and GirlLove symbols.

I never understood those people who want to deface and disrespect, the symbols of groups in the intergenerational love community…It’s just so meaningless, asinine and stupid…It’s like…what’s going on with these people, that they’re denigrating another communities mark of identity?

…It does not accomplish anything…The act, itself, is often just a gross smear, and completely misrepresenting the community in question…And this really reflects on the poor integrity and poor character, of the defacers.

Simply removing symbols, monuments and such from public display, does nothing to address whatever social issues people may be having concerns over.

It just hides things, and stops them from being brought to the surface.

…That’s not good.

01) Establishment Scolds Elizabeth Warren for Repudiating Clintonism in Fiery Speech

“Elizabeth Warren gave a fiery speech at this year’s Netroots Nation and unequivocally came out in favor of progressive policies while simultaneously repudiating Clintonism. As a result, the Democratic Party establishment responded by scolding her, and arguing for more centrism—even though it’s a strategy that has lead to them losing nearly 1000 legislative seats across the country. Don’t listen to ’em, Liz; you’re FINALLY standing up for what’s right!”

PC Corporate Culture Is a Plague That Government Helps Spread…

01) PC Corporate Culture Is a Plague That Government Helps Spread

“Too often companies like Google trample free expression out of fear of legal and civil backlash.

Most people think that the 1st Amendment guarantees free speech. But the philosopher John Stuart Mill argued that free speech requires more than just the absence of legal strictures. The “tyranny of opinion” of the majority has the same effect as censorship enforced by law. When everyone lives “under the eye of a hostile and dreaded censorship” by their fellow citizens, there will be no free inquiry. If Congress “make[s] no law … abridging the freedom of speech,” yet challenging popular opinion gets you fired from your job and made into a pariah, the legal freedom is largely symbolic. Some people may speak their mind and suffer the consequences, but there won’t be free speech.

Mill extolled freedom of speech as a necessary condition for discovering the truth, and he took it for granted that truth is a valuable thing to have. But what about people who don’t want to discover the truth? For them, free speech is the enemy. And since legal protections for free speech are so strong in America, they must resort to extralegal means of silencing those who challenge the lies that they want to protect.”

01) First Detection of Life – Space Time

“What does life look like from space?

In 1990, an experiment conceived by Carl Sagan was performed using using the Galileo spacecraft. The purpose? To detect life on a planet based on measurements by a space probe. The experiment was successful, and abundant life was unequivocally confirmed. That planet? The Earth. Now, a quarter century later, we’re on the verge of conducting that same experiment on a world orbiting another star.”
