Some random reflections

Some random reflections…

 

[important]

Last Tuesday evening, on November 15 2016 (one week after the dismal day that saw Donald J. Trump elected to be America’s next president), a group of concerned Garland County progressives met to discuss where we go from here.  These are some still-evolving thoughts on what to do next, and on why we can’t just keeping doing things the same way we always have…

Thank you!

[important]

Well, this showed up in today’s paper, essentially intact (only the “Sincerely” at the very end was redacted).  Interesting that someone went to such lengths to add a few commas here and there, and change the capitalization of this or that word, while at the same time other letter-writers were allowed to perpetuate patently false red-meat rumors about President Obama and a certain female candidate likely to become our next president.  Rumors that have been consistently debunked ever since … [more]

Fooled

 

[warning]

I’m not sure where the Saul Alinsky poison kool-aid counter is, but it seems like there are lots of folks bellying up to the bar these days.  This dire warning was in today’s paper under the title “Don’t be fooled” — I wasn’t…

Dear editor:

OK, we have the mainstream media against Trump from the beginning. Constant negatives and none for Hillary. Progressives obviously control the media. Hopefully our … [more]

Cheez Whiz and lye

[important]

Here’s a little something I wrote (borrowed, actually, with permission) that appeared in the Hot Springs Sentinel Record on Monday, October 3, 2016 and in last week’s Arkansas Times.

Dear editor:

Mister Sniffles’ ardent fans often attempt a diversionary tactic to deflect each and every criticism of their much-prayed-for sweet potato.  It’s an old debating trick to ignore the critics and instead demand an immediate and compelling explanation of … [more]

The full measure of its guilt

[important]

Just a little over 15 years ago, one day after September 11, 2001, Ward Churchill, a professor of ethnic studies at the University of Colorado Boulder, wrote the following essay.  He was roundly condemned for his troubles by media pundits, who called for his resignation and deemed him unfit to teach. The university’s Board of Regents publicly apologized for Churchill’s writings about the 9-11 attacks, investigated him for academic misconduct, and then fired him.  Churchill filed a lawsuit against CU and … [more]

The survival of Christianity in America

 

[important]

Well, it only took five days for some wingnut to respond to Dianne Kelly’s delicious brevity that appeared in the Sentinel Record on September 5, 2015:

Why pray for Trump?


Dear editor:

Concerning the large “Pray For Trump” sign located on the bypass between Airport and McLeod Street, before I pray for Mr. Trump, I really need to know why he needs our prayers. To win the election? Or, that he might seek help from the medical profession [more]

Go home

[warning]

This gem of intolerance showed up in the paper today, titled “Americans push back.”  It’s a flying-spittle response to my letter two days ago, more or less confirming my suggestion that immigrants are the scapegoat du jour for scared white Americans.  Can you imagine?!  Uppity Mexicans and indigenous people wanting their country back?!  Immigrants wanting to speak their own languages and practice their own traditions?!

We really were better than this.
