...where real knowledge intersects with real Americans!

HEY, People! Please don't just read what I post here (or anywhere), and nod your head sagely or approvingly and then move on to other things. I don't post in order to affirm your sense of things. I post in order to equip you with perspectives and arguments with which to educate others, and in the expectation that you will forward my posts to other people (or direct them to those posts). PLEASE do those things.

We won't win by YOU knowing what I present. We will win by LOTS OF OTHERS knowing what I present.


So, Saturday Was Declaration Day...
Did you do it?

DECLARATION DAY.
That is,
*"NO MORE PARALYSIS Day"
*"NO MORE DENIAL Day"
*"NO MORE, "I DON'T DARE..." Day"
*"NO MORE, "THE BAD MEN WILL NOTICE ME SO I'D BETTER NOT!" Day"
*"NO MORE, "I'LL WAIT FOR SOMEONE ELSE TO GO FIRST..." Day"
In short, we've just had,
*"GET OFF YOUR ASS Day"
*"GET LOUD AND PROUD AND UN-COWED Day"
I'm talking about,
*"DON'T STOP 'TIL YOU'VE GOT LIBERTY AND THE RULE OF LAW Day"
*"FACE THE FACTS Day"
*"NO TIME TO RELAX Day"...

MORE THAN ANYTHING, we've just had "PUT ASIDE DELUSIONS Day".

That's what the original "Declaration day" was all about. It was the day the American colonists finally acknowledged that the people they had been entreating to respect their rights actually didn't want them to have their rights.

It was the day the American colonists finally acknowledged that the government operatives they had been petitioning and politicking and lobbying and arguing with weren't misled or mistaken or suffering from misunderstanding, needing only to have things explained a bit better, or argued a bit more authoritatively.

Instead, as the colonists realized and finally admitted by way of the Declaration, those operatives were their competitors. Those operatives were the colonists' opponents. Efforts to persuade them were pointless-- they admitted to no limits on their power and had no interest in curbing its abuse, which was being practiced for their benefit.

'Julian Assange In Limbo'
A lion of virtue persecuted by a swarm of jackals-- most especially including Donald Trump-- with our liberty at stake.
