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.

Revisionist "reverence".

In his letter, "GOP selectively reveres Constitution", the writer universally reverses history and current facts. The XV Amendment, one of three passed to protect the rights of former slaves, was also intended to codify the rights of all U.S. citizens on this issue.

Arizona's Republicans are not "radical", especially when seen in the context of dedicated Progressive Socialists, seeking to undermine and overturn the Constitution for over 100 years. The "Voting Rights Act" is as aptly named as the "Affordable Health Care Act" that caused all of our insurance rates to skyrocket last year. No one challenges the rights of legitimate American voters, but the 1965 law is now being used to complicate regulations, thwarting prevention and prosecution of fraud and voting by non-citizens. This devalues your vote and mine.

Nor are Conservatives (Republican or not) "the same as Southern Politicians" who opposed "amendments that gave rights to slaves". Those would be the Southern Democrats, who, like their poster boy George Wallace, fought against education, voting and other equal rights. Abraham Lincoln (R) signed the Emancipation Proclamation. Democrats fought it and the new Amendments, supporting violence and discrimination against minorities, until they discovered financial enslavement via welfare and population control via Planned Parenthood (aka "the Negro Project").

Research it yourself.

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)].
