Sound Advice this week…
Once again, I agree and can totally relate to your 3/23 Substack words. I appreciate you showing the support from respected authors (King, Patterson) and yourself regarding book banning politicians. Also, I love the phrase “fundamentalist Borg” as a way to show how these politicians push their agendas. It’s no wonder America is devolving. I also appreciate you shedding light on the rise of hate related crimes in America. Thank you for your video break (as always) regarding good healthy positive feelings on camera for that little girl being adopted. It was terrific to see you highlight Beth Hart’s video (L.A. Song). I have been a fan of hers for many years and been lucky enough to have seen her live performances many times. She always puts 100% into her live performances. I recommend people try to see her play live or via the video Paradiso, or doing Led Zeppelin covers or Blues standards from Etta James, with Joe Bonamassa or Warren Haynes. You’ll be glad you did.
It must have been hard to build such a patronizing app
Substack is fine. Some content is engaging, some isn’t. It’s a standard newsletter platform.
I was delighted to have an app, as my life is busy and the constant flood of content into my inbox often feels overwhelming. Sometimes I like an idea or a writer so much that I want to support them by subscribing EVEN IF I’M NOT INTERESTED IN READING EVERY SINGLE POST. Substack doesn’t understand this. If they decide you’re not opening the app often enough, they will automatically switch on email newsletters for everything. You can not opt out, only delay the onslaught a bit by signing in and confirming, again, that you do not want all those emails. But if life gets busy and you’re not on the app enough for Substack’s liking — prepare for the emails to return.
I’ve unsubscribed from every list and won’t subscribe to any more, though I’ve got a couple of annual subscriptions to see through. Writers: this platform is likely to annoy your readers right off your lists, and actively discourages people signing up for paid subscriptions just to show support. Readers: you’ll never get these people out of your inbox. They override your notification settings on your behalf about once a month. (And send another email to let you know they’ve done so!)
I’m new here…
Great format, sub stack. I’ve read only yeah right right here. Yes ma’am gonna have an x-ray on. Do you need to have it? Yeah I was good since it’s her one article here by Steve Schmidt that he just wrote on the January 6 select committee final hearing.
Steve Schmidt has got to be one of the most articulate and elegant writers on political affairs that I have encountered. This article knocked it out of the park for me.
This article presents a situation that engenders both hope and fear. People of good will stood up and called out the evil among us. What hope this gives me! I feared and still fear that their voices would be silenced. Those who sponsored and promoted this kind of power grab are capable of violently enforcing a new power structure in this nation. A power structure that will crush the innocent, the earnest seekers of the means to feed their families, educate their children, and live a peaceful, safe life - the ordinary Americans. It almost happened in Germany when fascism nearly crushed whole cultures.
We must heed the warnings that Steve Schmidt and those like him who see the imminent risk presented by our native born American oligarchs. We don’t have to give up our beliefs about religion or how the country should be run, but we must protect the rights of all to prosper without the threat of the greedy, the power hungry destroying our democracy.
Great job, Mr. Schmidt!
