"You've got an opponent who has the capacity to reach millions of people with a click of a mouse and there's no fact-checker."There's a man who really doesn't get it. Yes, there are some loudmouths doing slapdash things on the internet. I can see one reflected in the shiny screen of my MacBook Pro right now.

I write this stuff for free. Not only because nobody wants to pay me, but because free relates to my opinions too.

Gits with blogs: not taking money, propagating their own opinions.
That is all.
