If anybody living anywhere on planet Earth is bored with the very real
possibility of the USA turning into a right wing dictatorship in just the
next few months then they are idiots, ... ups...sorry .... I forgot my
political correctness,,, what I meant to say is those poor people are
suffering from a tragic severe learning disability, and my heart goes out
to them.

One can never be certain you've arrived at the absolute truth, or at least
you shouldn't be certain, but debate is usually a good tool for getting
asymptotically close to it.  I am prepared to defend every word I say, and
if somebody beats me in debate then I will abandon my previous position and
embrace their position as my own. I have zero loyalty to ideas.
