iPhone : The Internet is part of the human experience now. Which means the Internet is a place of consequence. It should be treated as such.

iPhone : More than 1,000 former federal prosecutors say that President Trump would’ve been charged with obstruction if he were any other American. Here are 11 of them, in their own words:

iPhone : Donald Trump referred to asylum seekers today as “animals.” He is using the same language that dictators throughout history have used to dehumanize groups of people before horrific human rights atrocities have occured. If you’re not outraged then you are a willing accomplice.

iPhone : The President likening human beings to animals is despicable. I've seen this playbook before, words weaponized into bloodshed. His sneering rhetoric must be denounced. All who remain silent stand on the side of an insidious and dangerous scapegoating of our fellow human beings.

iPhone : LGBT activists & allies are storming The Dorchester in London, owned by the Sultan of Brunei, protesting laws punishing homosexuality with death by stoning.

iPhone : Today is the 238th day Trump’s spent at one of his properties during his failed presidency. Yesterday in California, today in Vegas—for fundraisers. He’s wasted well over $100 million in tax dollars on these senseless vacations. Most lazy, illegitimate and corrupt president ever.

iPhone : From kindergarten onwards we need education to strengthen inner values not just pursue material goals. We need to introduce emotional hygiene, much as we teach physical hygiene. This way we can address the problems we face, in the hope of making this a century of non-violence.

iPhone : Combat vet texts me: “Trump’s McCain comments hurt my soul. How have we arrived at a place where this is even possible, and how can no Republican leadership take a stand on this? Have we no decency?”

iPhone : Do what you can. Don't be too harsh on yourself. Being upset with yourself will not be good for your health. Try to keep your health as the most important thing. Nothing else counts in the end.

iPhone : Cooperation comes from friendship, friendship comes from trust, and trust comes from kindheartedness. Once you have a genuine sense of concern for others, there’s no room for cheating, bullying, or exploitation; instead, you can be honest, truthful and transparent in your conduct

iPhone : In working for the good of humanity I don't think of myself just as a Tibetan or a Buddhist, but as a human being. We have to think of the whole of humanity. Being human is the common ground in our efforts to create a better world, because we all survive in dependence on others.

iPhone : A Trump official said seismic air gun tests don’t hurt whales. So Rep. Joe Cunningham blasted him with an air horn.

iPhone : Judge Ellis’s assessment that Manafort led an “otherwise blameless life” was proof that he’s unfit to serve on the federal bench. I’ve rarely been more disgusted by a judge’s transparently preferential treatment to a rich white guy who betrayed the law and the nation.
