About the author

I am the author, co-author, secondary-author, ghost-author, and non-author of articles, speeches, book chapters, and even entire books! The most recent can be found at LosingMyReligions.net. Currently, I am President of One Step for Animals; previously, I was shitcanned from so many nonprofits that we can’t list them all here. Before my unfortunate encounter with activism, I was an aerospace engineer who wanted to work for NASA (to impress Carl Sagan). My hobbies include photography, almost dying, and {REDACTED}. I live in Tucson with my soulmate and reluctant editor Anne, along with the occasional snake and scorpion.

Asymmetry

The only person who could unite the country to get through a crisis like this would be a moderately sane Republican.

There is nothing - nothing at all - that a President Hillary Clinton could do such that Fox News wouldn't be screaming at her 24/7. As we saw in the economic collapse in 2008, Republicans will do nothing to help the country if it might benefit a Democratic president.

But as we saw after 9/11, the media and Democrats will get behind a Republican president. [Update: Every D & R senator voted for the >$2 trillion package today; not a single R senator voted for Obama's <$1 trillion one.]
