Impeach Trump, Careful What You Wish For

I have recently been seeing a lot of people pushing to impeach President Trump. No, I don't like the man, I find him to be obnoxious, hateful, woefully ignorant, and at best incompetent. Should he be impeached, well, that depends on what the Special Prosecutor finds during the course of his investigation. Will he be impeached, I seriously doubt it, we are stuck with him for at least four years or until the GOP gets sick of listening to him.

The Case for a UBI

Over the last decade or so, I have supported some type of Universal Basic Income. In the early days before I was introduced to Modern Monetary Theory, I would think about ways to fund such a program, how the tax code could be worked, how the increase in spending, and all the other factors that played into funding this type of program would work.

Assault, Cruel Teachers, and Measles on a Plane

In the run up to the election of Donald Trump, I kept hearing people say, “Never loose your sense of outrage.” I never lost it, but I had to bury it down, it was to the point that I was just angry. Ever little thing I heard would just add to that anger, and that is not healthy. I made a conscious choice to step away, let myself have a break, to cool off before I said something I couldn't take back. I don't regret that choice then, I don't regret it now, but those old feelings are coming back again.

Update

Its been far, far too long since I wrote anything here, political, religious, or anything really. So, here is an update, and some rantings from behind my personal bully pulpit. How am I, not doing so well right now. Looking for stable work that doesn't involving transcribing audio. The pay stinks, and I am very concerned about how our spoken language is degrading. Otherwise, I am looking for a place to move to, as our landlord has run into major financial problems, and yeah, he lost his backside. I'm doing great, but really bummed out about Chris Cornell. I wasn't a fan of much of his work, but he was a voice of a generation, he give a voice to those who felt utterly hopeless, and his influence will be felt for years to come. It is true, “No one sings like you anymore.”
