Question for a Friday

One of the memes that Steve Bannon used while campaigning for Roy Moore was:

"They can't come down here (from Washington) and tell us/you what to do!

So here's my question for today:

Why is it that people who can't (don't or won't) think for themselves react the most vocally and the most  vehemently against being told what to do?

...from David Leonhardt, NYT

Trump ’s L i e s

Many Americans have become accustomed to President Trump’s lies. But as regular as they have become, the country should not allow itself to become numb to them. So we have catalogued nearly every outright lie he has told publicly since taking the oath of office. Updated: The president is still lying, so…

After the Crematorium

Backlit by the luminosity

Of memories,

The figure gazes into the unknown.

An unknown of darkness and light,

Of planets and stars.

Of galaxies and universes.

Of protons and electrons,

The possibilities seem…

Democrats Have a New Strategy

Democrats have a new strategy, it seems.  So far it seems promising.

Sherrod Brown, D. OH, says he has approached Pres. Trump with his own proposed tax bill(s).  His justification for doing so was that approaching Senate Republicans is impossible; they are writing without liberal input.  Brown’s tax plans helped protect working families, whereas the GOP plan furthers the interests of business and the wealthy.

One person commenting after Gary Jones win in Alabama claimed that…

Remember the Marco

In the category of what goes down comes around – Remember the Maine! Or in this case, "Remember the Campaign". Trump says he thinks Rubio will come around on the tax rape bill. Maybe, but will Little Marco?

The Myth of American Revisionism

Since the early 1960’s revisionism of American history has been used by the left as a tool of recruiting disaffected college students on campuses across the US. In fiction or Hollywood it is called histrionics which means fictionalizing actual events due to the lack of available evidence. Revisionism…

Doug Jones Defeats Roy Moore in Alabama Senate Contest

Doug Jones Defeats Roy Moore in Alabama Senate Contest:  Doug Jones, who made his name by prosecuting two former KKK members who bombed a black church, has won a stunning victory in the Alabama Senate race - the first Democrat to win such a seat in the state for 25 years.  Of course, I realize the Moore camp has asked for a recount, but no matter how you look at the numbers - she was still only 14.…
