So for some reason Twitter placed my @JSWardell account in Twitter Gulag (TG). They held me hostage for my mobile number. (I hate Twitter for that.)
In the beginning the Twitter Progressives were skilled at trashing Conservatives and throwing them in the TG therefore it was necessary and essential to have a backup account. For me that is and continues to be @JSWardell2.
What caused this unjust imprisonment?
Well, it could be that I was rapidly Tweeting back to Progressives attacking my stand on DACA. And it was going well, thanks to Daniel Greenfield‘s fantastic article that so wonderfully frames the debate:
DREAMERS AND THE “HOLDING CHILDREN ACCOUNTABLE FOR THEIR PARENTS” ARGUMENT
If your father embezzled millions of dollars from his company, if you didn’t know about it, you wouldn’t be liable for the theft. But you wouldn’t get to keep the money.
If you’re unknowingly living in a house that doesn’t belong to you because of the actions of your parents, you still have to give it back. You’re not being punished for their actions. But that doesn’t mean you have a right to benefit from their illegal acts.
The DREAMERS have a certain call on our sympathy. But their American victims have both the moral and legal case to protect their rights.
It’s sad when someone loses their house or has to change their lifestyle because their parents stole it. But it’s those they stole it from who are the real victims.
Oh my gosh, I LOVE Daniel Greenfield, prolific and brilliant writer.
Anyway, back to the saga. Finally, after not quite a day in the TG, my original Twitter account @JSWardell is functioning but please be sure to #Follow @JSWardell2 in case my page is suspended in the future.
This is not a comprehensive list of sites or people that I follow for news and political information. It is in relative order of importance to me when I want to double check what I am hearing or reading from other sources. The list is compiled and posted here thanks to my friend JL’s inquiry to become self-educated. I thank her for trusting my opinion enough to ask where to go for information that is easy to read and understand.
My suggestion is to visit one site at a time searching for information that is of interest to you. When you feel brain-fried simply step back, take a break. Discuss what you read with someone else you trust if you feel unsure or confused about what you are reading. You might find that you understand more than you think you do.
