fact or fiction
Is it a fact or is it merely fiction? Exploring and debunking conspiracies and the lesser known truths in the world of politics.
Yes, Congress Really is a Bunch of Old, Rich, White, Christian, Hetero, Misaligned Men
» KEY POINTS Congress does not reflect the American people in the most fundamental and even superficial ways. Political alignment, gender/sexuality, race, religion, age, earnings, net worth, and education of Congresspeople do not even come close to the electorate. There is no amount of law, policy, redistricting, quota filling, or any other method that can change the current situation.
Winner Takes All is a Losers System
» KEY POINTS An elected official in the House of Representatives or the Senate cannot cover the will of all their constituents. Their only concern is getting just enough votes to beat their opponents, not actually being the voice of many different people in Congress. Only by eliminating the "winner takes all" system of elections can every person have their views raised in the federal government.
NFT Marketplace Development: Top Methods for Discovering Business Opportunities
Isn't it empowering and strengthening to provide energy to our constantly clamoring cerebrums? Without a doubt, absolutely. Our mechanical achievements have been so visible for so long that we have almost forgotten that we are lacking in another area. Again, why can't we get it started, despite the fact that the fundamental walk around the moon was required several years earlier? The asset expected a critical role, but it wasn't the one to focus on.
Fiddling While Rome Burns
I'm going to go out on a limb and assume that you have no idea to what the title of this article refers to. Pardon my cynicism but, considering current events, I find my attitude justifiable. So let me explain this in a 'more relatable' way - with a Tweet.
Congress: An Intentional Giant Mess from the Start
» KEY POINTS The House of Representatives is supposed to be the “Legislature of the People” and the Senate the “Legislature of the Land”. Neither are doing the job as intended. How did we get to this point and why is there no cure? No adjustment to legislative rules is going to fix a fundamentally broken system. We must Constitutionally overhaul how the Legislative Branch is set up in its entirety.
The Dreadful Compromises that Created America
» KEY POINTS The process of creating the Constitution was so flawed and rushed that only 39 of the original 74 delegates actually signed off on it. Repercussions—both predicted and unexpected—have been rippling down through time because imperfect men made compromises just to get State legislatures to give in. In order to correct these issues and reaffirm the values supposed in the Constitution and purported by Americans, we must approve a massive amount of new Amendments.
The media war to capture the human psyche
Renowned Austrian psychologist Sigmund Freud considered the human psyche to be at the centre of an individual’s emotions, thoughts and behaviour, controlling everything from a person’s interaction with family, friends and colleagues to beliefs about religion, education, death and all else in between.
Agreeing with my Enemy
» KEY POINTS When someone who was perceived as my adversary and I teamed up and learned to understand where the other one came from, we were able to create lasting and important change. This is a lesson that our representatives in government need to learn. Is there someone who is willing to reach across the aisle and discover that more can be accomplished together?
Russian has been sanctioned in every way, so what else can they lose?
Putin reportedly sent President Xi of China a message of congratulations on his re-inauguration to a third term as president.
Race and Ethnicity are Meaningless Human Constructs
» KEY POINTS Surveys like the Census that ask questions around race and ethnicity are inherently flawed because they predetermine the possible selections for deeply held personal ideas about identity. Americans are having more difficulty filling in these fields for a plethora of reasons and are skipping these questions or entering confusing answers, yielding unhelpful data and suppositions based on that data. Only by allowing free rein responses to questions like these can we get useful data that can be analyzed and re-evaluated over time.
It's Not Your Job To Educate Others, But Do It Anyway
"It's not my job to educate white people!" Man, it's tough to be a 'woke' black antiracist today. If a twelve-generation legacy of slavery, 100ish years of Jim Crow and Herschel Walker aren't enough of a cross to bear, you still have to keep answering Stupid White People Questions.
Trump is the ‘Hope For Peace’ in Ukraine , as Emphasized by a NATO Member
He claimed that Biden had gone “too far” in his criticism of Putin’s continued presidency in Russia. The right-wing populist leader, a close ally of the Former U.S. president, recently declared,
