For our #WednesdayWisdom let's look back at a landmark #RPG that let you jump from star to star across the Imperium, trading and battling with various sophonts along the way.

It's a game of the far future that's lasted over 40 years: Traveller!
Traveller is a #ScienceFiction fiction role-playing game, first published in 1977 by Game Designers' Workshop. Launched a year before TSRs rival Gamma World it's probably* the superior SF RPG - its certainly stood the test of time.

(*Don't @ me!)
Traveller features various descendants of humanity with different skills and abilities. Your ship can jump faster than light to reach other planets but you can't communicate FTL, so you have to deal with whatever world you jump to before moving somewhere else.

Missed me live on @FFRF's Ask an Atheist program with Elizabeth Cavell and @AndrewLSeidel this morning? Not to worry--the episode is already up on @YouTube!



I give shout-outs to @brchastain and @laureneoneal on the show.

@FFRF @AndrewLSeidel @YouTube @brchastain @laureneoneal We discuss my background, #exvangelical community building, and the reasons it's important to push back against the Christianization of our public sphere, as laid out in my recent @Playboy article "The Gospel According to Mike Pence":

ICYMI: Hamza bin Laden, Son of Qaeda Founder, Osama bin Laden was killed in a strike 'sometime in the 1st 2 yrs of the Trump admin' after leveling a series of threats at the US Details are scarce at this time. #WednesdayWisdom
nytimes.com/2019/07/31/us/…
2-"Details of the strike that killed him were scarce, including when and where. The United States government played a role in the operation, but it was not clear how, according to the officials, who discussed his death on the condition of anonymity because it involved
3-"sensitive operations and intelligence gathering. Mr. bin Laden was killed sometime during the first two years of the Trump administration, officials said. He was killed before the State Department announced a $1 million reward for information about his whereabouts in February,

New piece out late today in the Miami Herald about the status of the Jeffrey Epstein case, and his alleged suicide attempt. #WednesdayWisdom
miamiherald.com/news/state/flo…
2-This is REALLY interesting: "Epstein’s defense team is also bracing for the release of some 2,000 pages of court documents in a 2017 civil case involving Epstein’s alleged madam, British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell."
3-"A federal appeals court has ruled that the previously sealed documents, said to contain more evidence of Epstein’s sex trafficking, must be made public and they could be released at any time." Likely to tell us a LOT, & prob why she's disappeared!

It's BREAKING that the Articles of Impeachment that Al Green (D-TX) introduced on the House floor after the Condemnation vote last night, will be voted on TODAY. #WednesdayWisdom
2-The House will have 3 options:
1-Move to table (toss it)
2-Send it to the Judiciary Comm to have them look into it
3-Begin the impeachment inquiry on the House floor.
Remember that Pelosi has the final say.. and it's only one step in a long process. #WednesdayWisdom
3-Based upon a statement just made by Hakeem Jeffries who is in Pelosi's inner circle, Dems may choose to take the middle road, vote send this to Judiciary & NOT table these Articles of Impeachment. That's good news.. gonna be an interesting day! #WednesdayWisdom

Kremlin media outlets Sputnik and RT recently got de-invited to the International Conference on Media Freedom and some folks ain't happy. #WednesdayWisdom

cc: @ZellaQuixote
We downloaded tweets from the last 10 days containing "media", "freedom", and "RT" or "Sputnik" and filtered out a couple of early false positives. 9.4% of tweets are automated (average for most datasets of this sort is roughly 3%).
The first on-topic tweet about RT/Sputnik being barred from the conference came from @BotsPutin, which probably isn't a bot although many of the other early accounts to tweet about the subject are in fact automated (mostly newsbots linking custom collections of news sites.)

1) The life of a Sheep is easier than the life of a Lion. Sheep are given food & water freely by their shepherd, & are protected from predators by shelters they did not build. They fatten themselves on the shepherd’s food, thriving into a multitude that outnumbers the lions.
2) These comforts bind sheep into slavery. Sheep are bred to be Weaker of Mind & Body, to require shepherd’s protection so greatly that they can be free of physical chains but never stray. Theirs is a lifetime of servitude, one that is comfortable but ends at the shepherd’s whim

@ricardorossello Systemic corruption unearthed in Puerto Rico politics! Who would’ve guessed?! Remember the aftermath of Hurricane Maria? “The U.S. government hurricane response was widely criticized as inadequate.”WednesdayWisdom
Puerto Rico got mad when Trump didn’t “immediately waive the Jones Act, which prevented the commonwealth from receiving any aid and supplies from non-U.S.-flagged vessels from U.S. ports.”
The Jones Act restricts shipments between U.S. ports to American-run vessels & strengthens the economy. It’s also a matter of national security that keeps shipping, and shipbuilding safely in US control withint our national borders. Guess who wanted abolish the Jones Act?

A good friend watched my video with @Michael_LeeChin and reached out this morning for some advice based on a simple question that many have:

“I have realized that the older I get.... The fear aspect gets louder in my head.....what do u do to quiet the inner noise?”
I will share my answers that I have to my friend since they are universal and not personally identifying
1. I literally focus on the regrets that I’m going to have if I DON’T pursue something while ensuring that it’s in my framework.

Create a framework for decision-making and use it.

Yesterday, Wilbur Ross himself announced that the Trump admin are dropping the effort to have the Citizenship Q added to the 2020 Census.
Today, Trump called it fake news.
I have reporting that it went to the printer without the question on it late yesterday. #WednesdayWisdom
3-Here's the caveat, kids.. NO ONE should fill out that Census online!
"While there’s a remote possibility that the citizenship question might resurface in a digital 2020 questionnaire later on, it is generally understood that the paper and digital forms must be the same."

There is some truly spectacular irony in Trump delivering his "Salute To America" speech on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial on the 4th of July.That's where the 1963 Civil Rights March on Washington was held & where MLK gave his "I have a dream" speech. Trump has NO place there!
2-For those who, like Trump, lack a sense of the history of the March on Washington in '63, read below. Donald Trump clearly shows us with this spectacle he's created for tomorrow that he has NO sense of history. Let alone this:

ICYMI: Yesterday, House Ways & Means filed a lawsuit against Treasury re obtaining Trump's tax returns, asking the courts to uphold Chairman Neal's subpoena's for docs & Mnuchin's testimony. #WednesdayWisdom
thehill.com/homenews/house…
2-"This is the first time House Democrats have gone to court themselves to obtain such records after repeatedly requesting the IRS to release the returns directly.
3-"Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin rejected Neal’s request in May, saying that it lacked a legitimate legislative purpose. Neal then moved forward with subpoenas to Treasury and the IRS for the returns, which Mnuchin also refused to comply with."

Sanders has dropped in the polls yet this is SOP for both him & Biden, bc it's early & their #s have been based upon name recognition. Now that the game's begun it'll be @ fitness, performance & true voter interest. He won't drop-out-yet. #WednesdayWisdom thehill.com/homenews/campa…
2-"The Sanders campaign says those counting him out are once again underestimating a candidate who surprised the political world three years ago and remains a a small-dollar fundraising juggernaut with an enthusiastic core of supporters.
3-"But Sanders’s rivals are stepping up to challenge him, including Warren, who is trying to overtake him as the party’s progressive standard bearer.

With Jerry Falwell Jr. trending for the insult he slung at Russell Moore, note that Moore represents the "nice" version of the same ideology. Falwell says the quiet parts out loud. There's no such thing as kinder, gentler culture wars.

rewire.news/religion-dispa…

#EmptyThePews
I believe that Moor is sincerely trying to be "not racist." But he is not anti-racist in any robust way, and can't be if he wants to remain in a powerful position in the Southern Baptist Convention. His apology for suggesting that voting Trump was a sin was the move of a coward.
He made that move to save his job. Meanwhile, Moore supports "biblical patriarchy" and is as anti-LGBTQ as they come. He's better than Falwell, undoubtedly, but he's not on the right side of history. Effectively he enables the evangelicals (most of them) who are worse than him.

This is reporting that members of the GOP considered subpoenaing Mueller themselves in order to place Dem leadership off guard. It shouldn't be lost on us that the GOP legislators are a BIG part of the obstruction problem. #WednesdayWisdom thehill.com/policy/nationa…
2-"..a subpoena resolution from a Republican several weeks ago would have undoubtedly caught Judiciary Democrats off-guard, putting them in a tight spot where they would be on record either for or against subpoenaing Mueller, a move Democrats at the time had yet to make amid some
3-"divisions. But the GOP sources say McCarthy worried such a move would backfire. “I think McCarthy thought it was the wrong move and would play against the effort at large,”

1-Last night, Chairmen Nadler & Schiff announced that Mueller will testify publicly before both committees on 7/17, & in closed door session w Intel afterward. I am skeptical. While it'll be great for America to hear Mueller discuss his findings, Trump is going to try to stop it-
2-at least with his claims of Immunity & EP as with McGahn & Hicks-re the contents of the report being what Trump didn't want THEM to talk @. And if he can't, Mueller may not be forthcoming. It's disappointing that Mueller had to be subpoenaed in the 1st place.
3-Time will tell how, & perhaps even if, this will happen. Here's the joint committee statement on the upcoming Mueller testimony. #WednesdayWisdom intelligence.house.gov/news/documents…
