New Philly Anti-Police Protests Show Need to "De-fund" Police Angry protests and property destruction is happening in Philadelphia. The story behind these actions shows why we need to "defund" the police. But what does defunding the police mean? Defunding the police does not mean getting rid of any functions that the police perform. It means doing all of the functions differently or taking away functions that can be better done by others.

How Much, NOT, Have You Donated, to How Many? I was talking to a friend who is an enthusiastic Biden supporter, and he sure wants the senate to flip blue. 'So how much have you donated to Biden, and how many senate candidates have you donated to?' I asked. He replied, flabbergastingly, "Nothing." 'What the f*ck? I replied.'

Open Thread: Stephen Miller Has Covid-19 tephen Miller has Covid-19. What are your thoughts? For me, Miller is the most detestable, despicable person after Trump, maybe even worse, since Trump is so stupid, it has taken Miller to come up with some of the most diabolical evil, heartless and cruel things Trump has put into effect.

What About Trump's Mental Functioning? Clearly mental, emotional and cognitive functioning, even reality testing are major issues for Covid-19 patients. Yet I have not heard a single mention of concerns about President Trump's mental capacity since he was diagnosed. I want to know what assessments of Trump's mental, emotional and cognitive functioning have been made. As president, the testing should be much more aggressive than for the average patient.

Fake Government Information Trump has systematically attacked the media, calling them fake news. But what we really have is fake government information. More now than even a few weeks ago, there is every reason not to trust ANYTHING Trump appointees and their agencies say or claim.

Edges I founded and ran a conference and would instruct all of the speakers-- up to 85-- to go beyond their edges, to stretch their envelopes. I wrote this poem in 2008, the year after I stopped doing the conferences, which I ran for fifteen years.

Police Allow Civil War in Kenosha; Two Dead, One Injured Has a vigilante started the war right-wing extremists have been longing for? Are police allowing white nationalist, racists to literally engage in terroristic murder in the streets? The possibility that looting and even burning of buildings is or could be happening is no excuse for murder or giving vigilantes a pass. It sure looks like the local police are in collusion with murdering domestic terrorists.
