Millions of folks used Twitter to stay informed, to maintain group cohesion, to keep up on ridiculous trends that were important to them, or just have fun. Musk has no understanding of what the folks who are not billionaires care about.

In many ways Twitter was like a town square. The previous owners attempted to keep it as a town square in 2022, in which hate-speech, violence, and blatant, dangerous lies were unacceptable, and those who acted that way were told to step away.

Musk seems to want to reinvent the town square of a Mississippi town in 1858, in which the views of the rich slave owners dominated and everyone else was intimidated, if not lynched.

The Dems are not afraid to teach the truth about history, and also feel that the women and the LGBTQ people are entitled to all the benefits of citizenship, including the right to decide when to have a child.

He also needs to find ways to confront the Supreme Court, at least to place the blame for all of their destructive decisions on Republicans.

If they. cop a plea, they won't go to jail. There will be plenty of indictments, with lots of evidence to back them up. Trump might too stubborn to know when to cut his losses.

I'm sure his lawyers will recommend that he negotiate. I don't think either side wants to have a trial. Will he listen? Probably not.

Will they really charge everyone involved, even those in Congress? Well, they are over 900 already, what's 150 more?
