    California is talking CALExit. I assume Trump being elected is a big part of this. I like the idea that states are standing up for states' rights. Even though I don't expect them to secede, I do think this is healthy. It's also educational for people to realize that states have power. It also might spur people to wonder what other power they have. Curiosity in this direction is a good thing, even if currently they're probably mostly "anti-liberty". It's also good that protests are acceptable again. There is talk about the media being a watchdog of Trump. Even though we all know the MSM is completely phony, it's still good that people are reminded that government needs to be "watched". Hopefully the anti-war left will be resurrected. It was beyond shameful how they stopped being active while Obama was in office. Apparently he's the the only POTUS to be at war for every single day of his 8 year tenure (honestly that surprises me but that's what I recently read). Trump has talked about bring back torture/waterboarding (personally I'm not convinced it ever went away). He also had his first drone strike homicides (in Yemen). Maybe Trump will also sign the NDAA allowing murder or indefinite detention. I want people to talk about how terrible all this stuff is. I expect they'll think it all only happened during Trump's (and maybe Dubya's) tenure, not realizing Obama was every bit as bad. This opens up great teaching opportunities to show that the D's are every bit as bad as the R's.

    Re-read my post. In particular the line that begins: "Even though we all know the MSM is completely phony..."

    I'm interested in hearing opinions about his site: WhoWhatWhy.org. I loved FOS (and highly encourage people to read it) and, for a while I liked WhoWhatWhy. They did great coverage after the Boston marathon bombing. However, after that, the site has gotten progressively worse. It is all under Russ Baker's name too so I'm assuming he approves of what is being written/said there. They currently have an interview on there with a guy named Don Tapscott who is pushing, amongst other things, the positives of Davos ("the purpose of the World Economic Forum is to improve the state of the world") and digital currency ("they could do helicopter drops into the bank accounts of citizens or of entrepreneurs"). Below is the propaganda article I'm referring to. What I wonder though is if this changes people's perception of Russ Baker. Is he controlled opposition (I tend not to think so, btw) or maybe there's something more nuanced going on? I know WhoWhatWhy is a 501C3, meaning (I believe) that the government potentially has some leverage (e.g. they can eliminate financial benefits) over what gets said. In any case, I'm interested in people's thoughts on this. http://whowhatwhy.org/2017/01/27/left-right-dont-understand-davos/
