Trolls. Anyone who has been active online long enough, particularly through social media or website comments that make them express their opinions online, have probably been trolled. The question that we all should ask (if we even really care) is whether or not the trolls are real or if they’re shills.
Nobody runs for VP. They support the ticket in elections and run interference when in office. Donald Trump should change that paradigm. He would be the perfect counterpart for most of the GOP candidates.
The headlines are starting to run. The rumors continue to roll. Every four years, we begin the new but intense cycle of political social media. One might say that it’s every two years, but let’s face it – the general audience on social media doesn’t get that excited about anything other than the presidential race. For the third time, we’re all about to go to war.
I can’t remember the last time I publicly agreed with a celebrity. It’s never been something that I do; celebrities generally know less about important topics than scholars or journalists whose opinion I respect. Often times, they know less about them, particularly when it comes to topics that affect the general population rather than the insulated worlds of the rich and famous.
If you’re a Democrat, you’re probably thinking that there are so many Republicans running for President that it will be hard to decide who to attack. If you’re a Republican, you’re probably groaning every time a new candidate is announced because it means more confusion on the ticket and more debates to watch. Nobody should be groaning. This is a very good thing. This is America.
For years, the Internet Revenue Service has been an absolute joke of an agency. We don’t tend to get into name-calling or editorial elaboration on this site too often, but today’s revelation of a major security breach of personal information for 100,000 Americans is simply too insane to allow to slide without commentary.
