Thus Nietzsche argues that words and concepts never correspond to real things in themselves - we cannot carry across / connect our words and ideas of things (subjective truths) with real things in themselves (objective truths). Metaphysics is dead!

Sometimes Nietzsche may seem to have very definite opinions on what he regards as moral or as immoral. Note, however, that one can explain Nietzsche's moral opinions without attributing to him the claim of their truth. For Nietzsche, after all, we needn't disregard a statement merely because it expresses something false. On the contrary, he depicts falsehood as essential for "life". Interestingly enough, he mentions a "dishonest lie", (discussing Wagner in The Case of Wagner ) as opposed to an "honest" one, recommending further to consult Plato with regard to the latter, which should give some idea of the layers of paradox in his work.
Legal or financial retribution from Trump administration: a) In 2013 the Supreme Court ruled against Obama admin. They had sought to sanction states that did not comply w the Medicaid expansion. The SC ruled this was unconstitutional overreach. This sets a precedent: Executive Branch cannot withhold funds unless directly tied to program funds. ID could withhold ICE dollars (of which we get almost none). b) At least one municipality was successfully sued for lost time and wages after holding someone at ICE request. The city was required to pay approx $150,000. c) cooperating with the Executive Order actually costs the city money as we would be required to use our tax dollars to enforce the order and house people in our jails.
