AGEISM
The Art of Teaching Science
by Jack Hassard
4d ago
This post is about ageism and how we discriminate against people that are considered old. We need to look at the media and ask why they are making the case that Biden is not fit for office based on his age. Most of the people in the media, those that are writing the stories and reporting on various outlets, are much younger than either Trump or Biden. Could they be involved in a case of bias, discrimination, or bullying on the basis of age? This very well could be the case. Researchers call this ageism, patterned after sexism and racism.

The Colorado Supreme Court blocked Trump from the 2024 ballot. This was a landmark case, but it was appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court. Oral arguments will be heard on February 8, 2024. More than 4 dozen amicus briefs have been filed for and against the Supreme Court case. The case will decide whether or not Donald Trump can be on ballots for the 2024 primary and general elections. This post explores how the disqualification section of the Fourteenth Amendment can be used to prevent insurrectionists from holding office in the U.S. The post The Disqualification Section of the 14th Amendment: Im ..read more

Georgia Republican Legislators Want to Ban American Library Association

S.B. 390 is written to target libraries and librarians. Some Georgia Republican Senators believe the American Library Association (ALA) spreads Marxist ideology. Therefore, they want to ban the Association from the state and require all public libraries to disassociate from the ALA. I don't believe these senators. I don't think they are telling the truth about their remarks about libraries in Georgia. GA Senate Bill 390 is disingenuous. They are claiming the ALA is a Marxist organization without any evidence. In this post I provide evidence to refute their bill and suggest an action plan to ov ..read more

The Godfather’s Sycophants Turn Out in New Hampshire

Donald Trump is the godfather of American politics in 2024. I would align him with authoritarians such as Viktor Orbán of Hungary, Recep Tayyip Erdo?an of Turkey, and Vladimir Putin of Russia. He insists on complete loyalty. But he also dehumanizes others, even the people who support him. He embarrassed Ramaswamy and Scott last night before each was to speak. Scott professed his love for Trump in an unbelievable remark he made in front of the cameras: "I just love you."

How to Run Against Donald Trump
The Art of Teaching Science

Two articles were written in the last two days leading to today's New Hampshire primary election. I was impressed with each article and will share parts of each article below. They take on the issue of how Haley should have run against Trump in the New Hampshire primary. Trump is an authoritarian who is following the same path as other autocratic leaders, from Mussolini to Putin. Haley must be willing to attest to the fact that Trump is an autocrat and racist, who has been charged in 4 indictments with 91 felonies, found guilty of business fraud in New York state, and found guilty of rape and ..read more
