    Twitter Needs Competition

    In recent weeks Twitter has come under fire from conservatives and libertarians due to political profiling and censorship of non-liberal views. One of the biggest cases is that of Laura Loomer, a journalist from Minnesota. She was recently banned from Twitter for the rest of her life. Loomer was banned due to a tweet that Twitter moderators claim violates their terms of service. In her tweet, which was about a newly elected Muslim Democrat named Ilhan Omar, Loomer pointed out that Omar practices a religion that supports the oppression of both women and homosexuals.

    Shrinking My Workshop

    A couple of years back I took over half of our basement with my workshop. I took out the bathroom that was down there, took down ceiling panels to allow for more height, and removed some piping that had gone to the toilet. This resulted in me having about an 18’x12′ space, but shaped slightly like a “T”, with one portion of the shop being more narrow than the rest. The shop served me well and I enjoyed having as much space as I did. However, I have since realized that having a second bathroom in the house would be much more convenient than a larger shop space. I will…
