1 Sentence: A WH Press Corps Boycott?

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.

3 BRIEF VOTE TAKE-AWAYS



3 VOTE TAKE-AWAYS

1. Trump-base voters were never ... not for one minute, the sadly neglected-by-elites downtrodden folk-heroes so many sappy, guilt-ridden-when-anyone-sneezes liberals, made them out to be after November 2016.

They were always fundamentally racist/homophobic/anti-Semitic, so easily manipulated, narrow proudly…

Next week on Passionate Justice  I will address Hell Week w the racist murders of Black people and Jews, as well as the pipe bombs. 

Here, first, is why I think anti-Semitism may be regarded a racist iteration:

1 Sentence: How His Nationalist Declaration Serves Him Doubly

His Nationalist Declaration serves him doubly:  to historically illiterate acolytes it's an exclamation point of thoroughgoing patriotism; for convinced neo-fascists it reinforces his tribal and ideological solidarity.

1 Sentence: PROGRESSIVES PUT AN UNWARRANTED FAITH IN...


FAR TOO MANY PROGRESSIVES PUT AN UNWARRANTED FAITH in the orderly, inevitability of Justice. Be not a Romantic nor a Cynic: Be a Skeptic...one who knows that nothing is historically inevitable, that Good and Evil are both always possible...so work and hard for good and for Justice in every small and large way you are able.

3 Sentences: Better to Reveal & Resign

I tend to think s/he ought to reveal and then resign...his/her present course further undermines the foundations of functional government...no matter how good this may feel now, that feeling will not last...and we had worked out much of what s/he reports.

I get why the NYT did what it did and can pretty well condone its decision; but not so much the method of the writer (one or…

Recalling Joseph Heller, A "Catch-22" Insight for Our Era

"IT WAS MIRACULOUS.

IT WAS ALMOST NO TRICK AT ALL, HE SAW, TO TURN VICE INTO VIRTUE AND SLANDER INTO TRUTH, IMPOTENCE INTO ABSTINENCE, ARROGANCE INTO HUMILITY, PLUNDER INTO PHILANTHROPY, THIEVERY INTO HONOR, BLASPHEMY INTO WISDOM, BRUTALITY INTO PATRIOTISM, AND SADISM INTO JUSTICE.

When the Church Will Ditch Celibacy



Even for such an exceedingly top-down organisation, I think the institution is too large, wide-spread, too personnel-entrenched, for any one leader to root out child-rape in anything like a thorough manner. Attempts must be made, of course. 

The core issue, I have held, is that the celibacy requirement, whatever benefits the Church believes may accrue from it, by its nature invites…
