Daily Reading #7A

The Generalissimo is a slave driver, occupies my mind all the time, so not much reading and commenting today.

I don’t know enough about OathKeepers to be sure, but they have a pretty good rep in the patriot sites I read. If Soros is funding the BlackBlocks also, this is a serious attempt at destabilizing this country. Hard to know whether OathKeepers and other private groups are more effective than Law Enforcement, or just of wider scope or just provide public info like this :

“I want to oppose the idea that the school has to teach directly that special knowledge and those accomplishments which one has to use later directly in life. The demands of life are much too manifold to let such a specialized training in school appear possible…The development of general ability for independent thinking and judgment should always be placed foremost.” Albert Einstein, 1936

More consequences of a rule-based system that produces obvious injustice. Even worse, Wells took full advantage of the revenue generated by the illegal behavior, which the surely knew about. Why have there not been RICO suits by customers against Wells? :
