I am not exactly the easiest person to get along with, and this was especially the case 20 years ago at JMU. But these videos give you some sense of what I managed to do for the student newspaper, The Breeze.

This is a really interesting monologue about the future.
We now come to a point where we don’t know what the fate of the Republican Party will be. The issue is there are now two parties vying for power within the namebrand Repubican Party. There is the Trump Party that is populist and a little bit crazy, and there is the RINO Establishment that seemingly everyone hates.
If Trump loses — which it looks now like he will — then there is a good chance the party will either split into two or totally be destroyed. The reason why it might totally be destroyed is voters are the lifeblood of a party and if Trump stops that flow of blood to the brain of the Republican Party, then that’s all she wrote. that’s the end. It’s over.
But we’ll see. Maybe the Republican Party is a lot stronger for various reasons than I give it credit for.
I keep talking about this and no one listens to me, but the crux of the issue is if you were to make Twitter a lot like Reddit, then I think it would become a much more powerful discussion tool. Of course, what I mean by this is, if you made Twitter a lot like a Usenet / IRC combo, it would become an even more powerful force in online discussion.
