Quoted @jk_rowling

I was very proud to sign this letter in defence of a foundational principle of a liberal society: open debate and freedom of thought and speech.

If, as an author with tremendous wealth and privilege, you find yourself asked to sign a letter that provides aid and comfort to the repugnant transphobe, JK Rowling, maybe you should take a seat. Take all the seats. Take every last seat.

Antifa are now druids. I don’t make the rules, that’s just the way it is.

This is obviously false. All of the weasels already work in the Trump Administration.

There is *some* lag in likely deaths due to the recency of the spike in FL and TX.

There is a 0.00% chance that Florida truly has 50,000 more cases than New Jersey yet only 1/5 of the fatalities.

If declining death rates were due to improved treatments, death rates would be falling on an age-adjusted basis on par regardless of location.

If it was due to age, FL and TX would have 20x NJ’s daily deaths not 2x or fewer.

To the people suggesting there is a rational explanation due to improved treatments or a higher concentration of young people, none of that holds up to scrutiny.

FL and TX cases aren’t 40x more concentrated with young people.

Their treatments were *learned* from NY and NJ.

It is so ridiculously obvious that Florida and Texas are lying about coronavirus deaths.

Today, compared to New Jersey:

Texas: 40x more new cases; only 2x more new deaths

Florida: 40x more new cases; fewer deaths

Complete, obvious coverup.

p.s if you have any questions about any of this, what it’s like, how you manage it, etc., fire away... I’ll do my best to answer.

I’ll remember that we - me and all of you who choose to read me - banded together when it mattered and pulled us through a dark chapter.

And it will all have been worth it.

So, this has become a ramble but the gist is that for me at least, having a “large account” is a platform to contribute that comes at a cost.

Someday, we will have come through this and I won’t remember the psycho stalker who DMed me a pic of my son’s teacher...

And armed with that, there are upsides.

I like all of you good people. I feel a sense of community among people with shared values.

Hard to imagine these last 4 years without that.

There are probably some accounts who “monetize” all of this well. I am not one of them. I am still a guy on a sofa.

We have all been summoned to join together and contribute as we can.

Whatever it is I do here, in whatever small value that provides, it is “my part”.

It is time-consuming and has an opportunity cost. People who have very kindly supported my Patreon and Ko-Fi have helped immensely.

That has kept gas in my car - but not fixed its air conditioning.

There are no Soros checks.

I now feel a sense of responsibility as well.

My account’s reach has become insane. Last month, my posts were seen 180 million times.

That is effing insane. INSANE.

We have an election to win and a country to take back. Using that platform is a duty.

In real life, we don’t hang out with people who hate us.

We don’t even hang out in groups where 30% of the people hate us.

On here, if you are an account of a certain size and offering strong opinions, thousands of people will hate you with an animus that at first shocks you.

It can sometimes be personally threatening. It can make you worry about the safety of people close to you.

But mostly it just tests how comfortable you are with yourself regardless of whether people approve.

In that regard I’m lucky. I’ve been through a lot of shit and while I am woefully flawed in many ways (which I know well) I happen to like who I am at this stage in my life.

Ain’t nothing a stranger could say to me that would weigh on me more than my own self-criticism.

On MSNBC, @BernieSanders says his task forces with @JoeBiden made an "honest effort to come up with a compromise" on the issues and that, "if implemented, will make Biden the most progressive president since FDR."

Quoted @HoarseWisperer

Last week, I asked if my back story was something people were interested in reading about.

The answer was a fairly overwhelming ‘yes’ so now I suppose I owe it to you to make good.

To be honest, I’ve struggled with this, so this may be a bumpy ride.

Just so I can keep these altogether in one place and pin them for whomever might care.
