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.

**PLEASE share this around. I didn't research, consider, write and post this junk just to have it hidden.

Show of respect:

[No comment other than set up of the scene:  We all recall the huge crowds at 9-28-2009, Beck's "Restoring Honor" with the M.L.King family and 9-28-2010.  Easily in the millions, there were no (zero) arrests and the crowd packed out their own trash and any other litter lying on the ground, leaving the areas pristine for a mile in all directions.
Let us compare what one just observer found, just inside the WWII memorial, after the much smaller 10-20-2010 "One Nation" rally of over 300 Communist, Democratic, Green, Progressive, Union, Socialist, and Climate/Save the Planet groups.  Also shown are some surrounding city streets.  Finally,  side-by side view of the size of the crowds, "Honor" on the left, "nation" on the right.]

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)].
