    Pretentious title? It was the best I could come up with. It's 6:33am.
    Haven't had to really type for months. Not typing for a long time. My desk hasn't really been clear since Christmas. Well, the part that leads to the keyboard. The other half got more crap on it because I had to get it out of the way.

    So. Anyway. I haven't been here for ages. And I figured I should cover a few things. But since I ramble a lot and can go into a conversational labyrinth I know this would end ...

    While thinking about the insurrection invading the U.S. Capitol, I realized that the underlying reason for it was ignorance; although there may reasons for the ignorance. Most people have very limited contact with state and local government, just paying taxes, voting, building inspections, etc. And many people think that TV cop shows are good sources for legal advice and information about prosecution.

  5. Debt Reduction

    by , 11-22-2020 at 08:29 PM (Memories of the 28th Century)
    Since 2017 the National Debt has grown from 20 trillion to about 27 trillion, and there are proposals for additional stimulus that would add between 3 and 4 Trillion to the debt. Most of the increase in debt under Trump is due to the huge tax cuts that were given to the extremely wealthy and to corporations.
