Eye in the Pyramid used in political cartoon. Via Discordian Libertarians. (Not endorsing any message but thought some of y'all might be interested in image.)

Texas prisons ban It Can't Happen Here by Sinclair Lewis but allow inmates to read Hitler's Mein Kampf. Lewis is one of my favorite authors.

Reaction to debate commentary.

A defense of the Clinton Foundation.  If anybody cares — and one of the points of the article is that nobody seems to — it saves a lot of lives.

I always liked The March of Tyranny cartoon, but didn't realize that it's by Ben Garrison, current alt-right darling and DJT propaganda machine. Still a great cartoon, but now I wonder what he regards as Tyrannical.

I hope the fallout of this election makes the GOP finally drop the neo-southern strategy schtick and that they transform into basically a Libertarian party.

Respectful disagreement with a sincere political ethos wd be incredibly refreshing right about now.
