This is what #stephenhawking said the other day... you know, i think #automation could solve our #politicaldivide here in #america - it'll be the most #productive employee there is, it'll solve the problem of taxes, healthcare and all those other republican concerns because it'll render money obsolete ~ which will make #theleft more than happy - because while it ends #money it also takes away all our jobs! it'll also enable us to all #homeschool our kids so they don't have to go to the #politicalcorrectness camps (school) and it would also make college obsolete, because all those jobs will be #automated too! so no more #studentloans ... no more #homelessness ... i know you all think i'm nuts, but i don't care because you'll see that we're a lot more advanced technologically than what you know... we pretty much have all the technology we need to automate 95% of the jobs - it's just that we need to implement it and make enough of these robots to do all the work.... and like i said; once some jobs are automated, like a game of jenga, others will no longer make sense.
I've been saying this for months. this is not 2008 and we will not have a repeat in 2018. democrats need to do the work and change their marketing/image/message if they want to get anywhere in 2018. it takes a lot more for folks to embrace altruism than fear if that's what you are selling. i'm not trying to be a naysayer but i believe myself to be realistic. it will take a s*x scandal and an economic meltdown if the democrats don't want to do the work. and by work i don't mean talking about why the republicans are bad. i mean change the freaking conversation and the tone that you use when speaking. it's very difficult to change the discourse but it's something that must happen if democrats want to change things up. #democrats#politicaldivide#changetheconversation#hopelessin2018
Ashley rollo totally impressed me — i really, really like her. she's a lifelong conservative, and she's my age (early 30s) - she's a smart, funny woman with a really cute way of phrasing things. our conversation stretched well over two hours, so i split it into two halves.
this week's episode features part 1 of my convo with ashley, in which we talk a bit about immigration vetting procedures and bernie vs. clinton, but then focus in on an intense, deeply personal discussion about pussygate, s****l assault, and r**e culture in america. it got real.
and i got something so wrong that i had to correct it within the episode - i'm still reeling that i was wrong about this. it shattered my idea of what the realities are concerning s****l assault and how it relates to feminism. you'll wanna hear this episode!

Trucks idle at a shell truck stop in farista, colorado, just outside walsenburg. the town, which has historically voted democrat and has roots in coal production and unions, is the focus of our latest feature. but the county voted republican in the last election. the mines are no longer around and a hospital and retirement senior living center have replaced them as the largest employer. people want the local economy improve and they did not trust clinton's connections to wall street. they trusted donald trump. ⠀

Red and blue, side by side.
hurtling towards the same unknown,
but each claiming to be "more right."
i visited walsenburg, colorado a number of times during the first few months of the year. reporter @leahintaos and i were uncovering the reasons why a county that historically voted democrat chose to swing for #trump this year. decades ago, the town relied on coal mines, and today its citizens are hoping for some sort of economic boost. are they satisfied? .
