Juries were of particular importance to the founders because juries (drawn from the population) was a safeguard against a tyrannical government.

Juries were so important to the founders that they are guaranteed in the Constitution itself, the Fifth Amendment (right to indictment by a grand jury), 6th amendment right to an impartial jury in criminal cases, and 7th Amendment right to jury trial in civil cases.

A school district in Florida has banned the DICTIONARY.

Yes, you read that correctly.

In part because you had access to a DICTIONARY.

When I say β€œMask up” because of covid, the act of masking up actually prevents the spread of a shit-ton of other diseases. So maybe join the chorus and sing the praises of masking up instead of being a reply guy. Thanks.

It is essential to stop using Chrome.

Under the pretense of saving users from third-party spyware, Google is creating an ecosystem in which Chrome itself is the spyware.

Given Google's overwhelming presence in the browser market, this is unconscionable.

We should all despise the ad-tech business, and have no sympathy for the companies getting whacked by Google's actions. But we should not permit one monopolist to replace them all.

Historian begs Americans not to downplay Trump's threats to use the military against them

If Donald Trump becomes the 47th president, Presidential historian Michael Beschloss said he believes there is going to be a severe danger of instituting the Insurrection Act and putting soldiers on missions to police American soil.

During a rally in Iowa, the 2024 Republican frontrunner described the metropolises of New York City and Chicago as β€œcrime dens” and vowed to move fast to bring in the country's military might.

β€œThe next time, I’m not waiting," he said. "One of the things I did was let them run it and we’re going to show how bad a job they do,” he said. β€œWell, we did that. We don’t have to wait any longer.”

Beschloss says we should be taking Trump at his word.
