Worth Keeping In Mind

In the United States, from a Constitutional standpoint, people are free to have and express a lot of ideas. That doesn’t however mean that all ideas are good ones, or that bad ones should go unchallenged.

Just b/c someone is free to HAVE and express a bad idea, doesn’t mean others are under any obligation to embrace it. I for one will always take stands where I need to take them, unapologetically. If something is wrong and/or insane, I will call it out as such.

I absolutely will not pander to it.


The Twitter Meltdowns Were Real

I saw personally, people saying that if Elon fully bought Twitter, they’d leave the platform. I also saw the full on meltdowns/adult tantrums the other day, and today I saw people claiming said meltdowns didn’t happen.

They are lying. If they’ll lie over something as trivial as that, how can they be trusted on anything of significant importance?

I lost a couple connections personally on the platform as soon as I expressed thanks to Elon for buying it. I responded as follows:

To my connections, past, present, and potential: If you are upset by me being happy that Elon bought Twitter, I bear no animosity towards you. Simultaneously though, neither do I apologize for being happy that he did. I like him, you don’t, and life goes on for us both.

I still presently BELIEVE Elon when he says he advocates free speech on the platform for all users (barring any actual ILLEGAL CONTENT, obviously.) and I support and respect him for that reason.

While it’s true that I bear no animosity toward those who are upset about Elon’s takeover, I did find the meltdowns hilarious.

Death Threats & The Constitution

I have heard of some people sending DEATH THREATS to people who simply disagreed with or challenged them. It’s the height of insanity, and as far as I know, death threats are not covered/protected speech under the Constitution of the United States.

I don’t know whether they’d be classified as felonies or misdemeanors, but I would advise anyone receiving such threats to report them to law enforcement immediately.

Elon Musk,Twitter, & The Cancel Cult

I’ve been reading that many people want Elon Musk to buy Twitter. Elon believes in free people being able to speak their minds without the cancel cult being able to just shut down anything they dislike.

As long as Elon keeps said reasonable mindset, I’d be all for him buying Twitter (and any other social he sees fit) to save said socials from the insanity that is the cancel mob.

Not surprisingly, there are those who HATE the idea, because they ENJOY being able to silence anyone w/POV’s different from their own. Some of the people who hate the idea, are calling anyone who encourages Elon to buy Twitter “mentally ill” etc.

It will be interesting (to say the least) to see what comes of it all.
