It is a time of fear in the face of freedom, a time of an emptying country and swelling cities, a time for the widening of previous roads and the opening of new paths, yet a time when these paths are mined by knowing algorithms of the all-seeing eye. It is the time of the warrior's peace and the miser's charity, when the planting of a seed is an act of conscientious objection.

The Families for ED Advertising Decency Act has been sent off to the House Committee on Energy and Commerce, but as for a full vote on the floor of House of Representatives, well, Congressman Moran can’t seem to get it up there. [...]
It’s not like an invitation for lobbyists from big medical equipment manufacturers to come and get special access to members of Congress or anything like that. [...]
Federal investigations into the financial activities of Paul Magliocchetti, his family, and his PMA Group lobbying firm are proceeding apace, chugging onward with the slow velocity but strong momentum of a freight train toward the destination of prosecution.
