Improve Your Twitter for the 2018 Election!

Now is the time to start gearing up for a massively consequential election.   2018 mid-term elections will be played out even as we are under attack from organized Russian cyber-criminals. We can know that for sure because, according to the six top leaders of American intelligence, no directive has … Continue reading

Three Old Songs from the Heart

Winding up a fairly bizarre year, and starting one that’s sure to be only more so, let’s leave off from outrages and bottomless pits for a little while and consider something else. How about a style of music that is never made anymore? In this case we’re talking about moody, … Continue reading

Conspiracy Drivel Compounds Vegas Tragedy

The October 1st massacre in Las Vegas gave us an object lesson in the intellectual poverty and psychological troubles of a large segment of the population.
