The best day of 2020

Posted by Dave Switzer under My thoughts

The day that Joe Biden was declared president elect was the best day of 2020 for millions of people. It’s a great day, not just for the US but for the world. There should have been a blue wave, but this result is infinitely better than the alternative. Now we can approach the future with […]

Calabogie & Luskville Falls

Posted by Dave Switzer under My thoughts

I spent a week in Calabogie, which is not too far from Ottawa. I spent 4 days hiking on the nearby trails, part of the Manitou Mountain trail system. I also went hiking with my friend James on the Luskville Falls trail in Gatineau Park. Here are the trails in order: Red Arrow Rock Lookout […]

The presidential debate

Posted by Dave Switzer under From the web, My thoughts

Like 4 years ago, I didn’t watch the debate. But I read enough to understand what happened. No one should have to watch a debate between Donald Trump and Joe Biden. It’s ridiculous to pretend that it’s a reasonable activity. One of them is a debater, and the other is a bull in a china […]

Trump vs. democracy

Posted by Dave Switzer under From the web, My thoughts

Americans, one man is ruining your country — you need to pull it together to defeat him. Every single sane person needs to be doing everything in their power to stop Donald Trump. You must do everything you can to call out and resist voter suppression, voter intimidation, and other tactics. If your Congress representatives […]

Fighting the Supreme Court nomination

Posted by Dave Switzer under From the web, My thoughts

Ruth Bader Ginsberg, judge on the US Supreme Court, passed away a few days ago. Donald Trump has already nominated someone to replace her. Despite the fact that in 2016 Barack Obama’s nomination in an election year was blocked by Senate Republicans. The deeply hypocritical Republicans vowed to approve of anyone Trump picked. It’s very […]

Supporting the US post office

Posted by Dave Switzer under From the web, My thoughts

Donald Trump has admitted that he is wrecking the post office on purpose so that mail-in ballots can’t be done properly in November. Americans, now is the time to protest — you can’t let this person ruin the election. Remember that although Trump doesn’t back down often, he does occasionally — show him that everyone […]

When do you stop being loyal to your party?

Posted by Dave Switzer under My thoughts

Let’s say you support one party and even though they’ve done a few not-so-great things you’re still supporting them because it’s your party. At what point do you stop being loyal to your party? If you say never, you’re not thinking about it the right way. There must be some point at which you would […]

If you put your faith in Donald Trump

Posted by Dave Switzer under My thoughts

You’ll die. That’s not an exaggeration. Herman Cain put his faith in Donald Trump. He went to the Trump rally, most likely contracted the coronavirus there, and died from it. If that can happen to him, what makes you think it can’t happen to you?
