Bless me readers, for I have sinned. It's been 90 days since my last post. I feel bad about it but don't worry - not bad enough to bore you with all the carefully reasoned rationalizations for my absence.
But I had to take TWO STINKING MINUTES out of my important work day to let you know that the former president, who Spike Lee refers to as "Agent Orange," (that's funny, I don't care how you vote!), is suing big Social Media, and their CEOs as individuals, for censorship.
In particular the article reads, "The three related lawsuits, filed in federal court in Florida, allege the tech giants have violated plaintiffs’ First Amendments rights." Those of you who read even one of my three-part series in April about this very topic will remember, "The First Amendment doesn’t guarantee any of us unrestricted speech. It only protects us from government censorship. Said another way, neither the Constitution nor the Bill of Rights says you have the legal right to post anything on Facebook."
Go back and have a peek if you're interested.
And even though I am on record as being concerned about the hopelessly broad rights awarded to social media platforms, there is one inescapable fact that supersedes concept, precedent, theory and even divine guidance: Donald Trump is a criminal, an absolute turd of an individual, whose entire philosophy of leadership can be summed up in the words attributed to Nazi minister of propaganda Joseph Goebbels: "If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it."
Remember this, readers. Lucifer was an angel before he fell. He knows the Scripture as well as any angel, and can quote it to his will, to serve his purpose. Now, those of you who are liberals are rolling your eyes and those who are conservative are seething.
That's right, I'm talking to you.
