1 Sentence: Character Signatures

Posted on November 23, 2018 at 10:14am 7 Comments

All one must know of the two are their Character Signatures -- one, his painstaking persuasion for health care systemic betterment, accomplished, whose core is inclusion and dignity for the least among us; the other, his rabid fiscal/militaristic threats over a stalled wall, whose core is exclusion born of toxic cultural and racial bigotry. 

1 Sentence: THE IDEAL CITIZEN of TOTALITARIAN RULE

Posted on November 16, 2018 at 8:27am 5 Comments

“The ideal subject of totalitarian rule is not the convinced Nazi or the dedicated Communist, but people for whom the difference between fact and fiction, truth and lies, no longer exist.”

1 Sentence: A WH Press Corps Boycott?

Posted on November 9, 2018 at 9:03am 14 Comments

The idea of a WH Press Corps boycott is, yes, a double-edged proposition....there are clear downsides...my sense is, though, that these reporters are skilled...will get the information they/we need absent attendance...so I can support a boycott until these abominations against the press end.

HI Jon ~

I can't seem to get to my inbox, but thank you for your notes!

My one question about the piece itself, is, does the first paragraph seem to be outside the rest of the piece? I ask because it's not meant to, it's meant to read as the first paragraph *of* the piece. Someone asked me about that the other day....

Thanks again,

Anna

Glad to be here. I am looking forward to spending some time here this summer while I am off from teaching.

Thanks! I am looking for remembrances of Kim Gamble to share. He was kind to me.

Flint is a sad statement of America today, we must stop interfering in other countries - occupying them and destroying their infrastructure and REBUILD our infrastructure.  Too many towns in the USA are bankrupt or on the verge of bankruptcy.

Hello!

I don't know if you will recall, but I wrote on Open Salon under the name "eyespye" and was an avid follower of your blog.  I stayed with Open until they literally shut it down but have been reluctant to join Our Salon because I couldn't seem to find my "groove" (if you will) here.  Anyway, I went ahead and signed up if only to read/comment ... when I saw you were here ... kinda sealed the deal.  :-)  Hopefully the writing wall I hit a while back will fall away, and I will be able to contribute more than just a comment.

Thanks for your kind greeting ~

Listened to, i think your latest file. I enjoyed the section about grammar and poor writing on media.

 Reminds me of a UK member of parliament that tweeted "All immigrants must LEAN English".

Jon, what I see is very frightening.

People can't live in peace any longer. It's the prejudism and blindsighted viewpoints which are so scary.

Will it ever stop? What makes people behave this way?

It is usuallysomething else that triggers it. The Blacks are still the scapegoats of the USA.
