Things I did not share on social media on Feb. 14


Life's too short to give negative reviews. If you must give bad reviews, do them after you're reviewed everything that's good.

We should not talk about gun violence in America when there's been a recent major incident, or when it's old news, or when it's a day that ends with "day".

People who make straw man arguments are not malicious. We argue with what we hear. They only hear two possibilities, their own and the straw man's.

Liberals love left-identitarianism because it lets them feel guilty about their past instead of their present. #UnderstandingTaNehisiCoates

"Contrarian" is only an insult to conformists.

You learn more from your opponents than from your echo chamber.


This Is How AIPAC Really Works:
Has anyone ever seen so many members of Congress, of both parties, running to the microphones and sending out press releases to denounce one first-termer for criticizing the power of… a lobby?

By its own admission, AIPAC has 100,000 members out of an American Jewish population of about 6 million. Of that number, most are Jewish but, as it proudly proclaims, many are evangelical (and other) Christians.
