If your friends are telling you he is an idiot, why is he performing well, where it counts? I think there are too many who rush to judge the President on style, or personality, when they should be judging him on performance. Is it just that many are too caught up in playing like the media and everyone is now their own pundit of personality? I guess many live in the tweet domain of life and choose not to live their own lives. I think most Americans still just want to go and do their jobs, entertain themselves and their family, play with the dog, go out to eat, exercise and go to sleep at night, rather than worry over what the President says on Twitter. I doubt I’ll be buying that book about how crazy he is, or let it bother me. There is just too much else to do. Me? I’m re-grouting the floor in one of the bathrooms, this morning. I’d rather be talking about what the government shouldn’t be doing, than to concern myself, further, with what some gossip novelist says, who can’t be trusted to write or bother with anything, more than gossip.

The case of Nydia Tisdale, a Georgia citizen journalist, illuminates the power of the State to force behavior. But, while they may be able to force behavior, they cannot control information. Once the guilty verdict was announced it was posted on the Internet. Then the “blockchains” began. Me, and many others, copied the storied, added value to it, send it others for them to store on their servers. Now there are copies of the facts of this case that can be verified.
On Monday afternoon a Dawson County jury unanimously found self-described citizen journalist Nydia Tisdale guilty of a misdemeanor charge of obstruction of an officer for resisting arrest by former Capt. Tony Wooten of the Dawson County Sheriff’s Office.
Apparently in Georgia one can be found guilty of misdemeanor obstruction of a law enforcement officer simply because they want to.
It’s All About Information!
The great thing about this Case is, is we live in a 21st Century world, not a 1st Century world. This is now a pubic legal case. This is information. And, as much as they would like, they cannot stop information.
It’s About the “Blockchain.”
They may be able to physically stop a citizen journalist from recording reality, but once it is recorded it is distributed using a “Blockchain” through the world. This is called the Internet.
They may be able to stop a citizen journalist, but the Internet prevents them from stopping information.
Each of us can record this discussion and store it on our servers. This is a great example of a “Blockchain.”
In this week’s #TaxReformTuesday, Rep. Karen Handel (R-GA) sat down with local small business owner Thane Brooks to discuss how the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act will make it easier for small businesses to create more jobs and serve more people in their local communities.

Handel: “I’m here today with Thane Brooks, who together with his wife founded this incredible facility — Therapyland — which is a pediatric therapeutic center for children with autism and other spectrum disorders, and I wanted to hear from you personally what this tax cut, jobs bill means for you and this facility.”
Brooks: “Well, Karen, I wish this would have happened several years ago, and the reason being is we started with nine employees two and a half years ago. We have 55 employees right now. We have a tremendous wait list right now. We deal with children not only with autism, with cerebral palsy, with down syndrome, and there’s just not enough services like what we offer at Therapyland.
“Because we have so many different things that we offer for a child, for a parent to be under one location. And if we could have that tax cut years ago, I would have been able to open up more facilities, hire more people. My goal right now is to open up another facility sometime in the next year or so.
“If I could do that it’ll be bigger than this. We have almost 11,000 square feet, 12,000 square feet right now, and the next center I plan on doing is around 20,000 square feet. So, you can imagine, we’re talking, for just that one center, another 100, 150 people that we’d be hiring — that’s bringing in jobs, obviously that expense, that’s millions upon millions of dollars of equipment, supplies that I need. And If I were able to take advantage of this tax cut and write off this material right away, boy, I can not only hire people, I can bring in more patients, get that wait list down. But then I can also expand and continue to expand.”
