This blog consists mostly of common sense responses to happenings (news articles, political events, etc) that just cry out for someone to say "WHOA! Hang on a second, here!" Too many people get away with just inventing their own facts as they bull-rush their way through an argument.

Unless you're dodging a taxicab or sidestepping a falling gargoyle, it's usually wise to take what time is available to evaluate and apply actual common sense. Good, old wisdom. It is, of course, my opinion, but I'll try to show why I think it's factual.
Thomas Paine said, "To argue with someone who has renounced the use of reason is like administering medicine to the dead." ... but I argue with drunks, egomaniacs, anti-gun Statists, Socialist/Keynesians and climate-fraud peddlers, too.

Truth really does set you free.

On page A13 (2nd section) of May 14th’s Daily Bulletin, is a short (5 column inches) article. It represents the major reasons for problems and divisions that we see now. There are reasons for our crashed economy, a bankrupt California, the rise of Socialists in America, welfare-dependant millions who don’t believe they can compete, riots in bankrupt, Socialist Greece, American school kids at odds over U.S. and foreign flags, degradation of family values and people completely ignoring the written word of law. Some normally sensible people actually believe that “racism” and “oppression” are somehow invisibly included in a simple, fair bill, because some leaders say it is.

How can a short article include all of that? For one thing, “Assembly OKs felons’ food aid”, reports that, in the same week that Schwarzenegger announced “terrible cuts” in the state budget, Assembly Democrats passed a bill to allow convicted drug dealers to receive food stamps, without even seeking treatment for addiction. The federal system bans all drug felons from receiving the aid after release. California opted out of that ban in 2004, allowing assistance for drug offenders, with proof of treatment. On May 13th, Sandre Swanson (D-Oakland) won 42 Democratic votes to eliminate the drug treatment requirement. So, despite rampant debt, bankruptcy and huge citizen opposition to non-essential spending, Progressives add another taxpayer supported perk for drug dealers. “To prevent recidivism”. Right: free food prevents drug sales!

But that doesn’t cover all those other problems, does it? The article’s other aspect is that it is buried on A13 (2nd section). Few people read in depth beyond the first few pages (& the comics)and the “mainstream media” knows it. The White House makes unpopular announcements late on Sundays for the TV version of the same strategy. Progressives don’t want this new, preposterous giveaway known to taxpayers (who have to pay for it) only a few months before November’s already tough elections.

This mislead/ignore/minimize/hide tactic still works for those who cannot access cable or internet sources for news. Obama himself said that “technology is a distraction from democracy and emancipation”, though our Republic was emancipated by a million dead Union troops. He has no interest in "game boys, playstations or ipods", just Web access and Cable news. Other Socialist comments, hidden theft of billions, real politics of terrorists, actual content of laws (like Arizona’s, or “health care”) and other facts are widely known, for anyone who wants to know, on the web and cable news. At least you can decide for yourself, if you have the actual facts. Obama has to stifle this because FOX and others are out-drawing all other sources, and he is losing his dwindling support as the People learn.

Front pages and broadcast news are reserved for things like the President and Attorney General making false claims about a new law; they only admit that they never read it when they are under oath - - and on cable or page 13.

Please be reasonably polite, but especially be as accurate as you can. Provide sources if you have them. We might as well learn something. [Wikipedia and blogs are usually 'pointers', not authoritative sources; they indicate data that might be confirmed elsewhere (that's how I use them here)].
