Dumming Dumber

Reading the Comments Sections is often more enlightening than whatever intel the article may contain. While the rhetoric rapidly degenerates into redundant screeds employing the same old same old cute cliches, one still gets the sense (or lack thereof) of one's fellow citizens - and their most tenuous grasp on reason, logic, reflection and reality.

Here is a small example I stumbled upon this morning after reading about Congressman Eric Cantor's severe re-election problems here in central Virginia. See if you can spot the single most glaring error in the post...

Cantor is the typical politician – will do anything to stay in DC. Democrat or Republican, all are Washington prostitutes bought with who has the most suit cases full of money. By the time they are elected they are owned by the Lobbyist. Write your Congressman and tell them we need a Federal law limiting all that want to be the Elites in DC to a max of $1 million they can spend and no campainging until 6 months before the election. Hillery Clinton spent $90 million in 2007 for her New York Senate seat. Thats a lot of favors owed.

Hopefully you zoomed in on one of the dumbest (and regular) "ingredients" your average poster posts. See the sentence mid-graph: "Write your Congressman and tell him...". Seriously?

Dear Mr/Ms Poster: Yeah, you do that. And after turning your scribbles over to the bankrupt USPS for (alleged) delivery, take a few nanoseconds to ponder the potential  for your success. Start with this: You are "telling" your Congressman to act in total opposition to his personal/professional self-interest. Remind yourself a politicians first obligation is to himself and his re-election, not "representing" you; that's why he has an expensive and pampered staff. And finally, even if said Congressman were to actually act on your proffered "demand", how many snowballs in hell will melt before his colleagues will join him in passing legislation that, if crafted meaningfully, would actually work - and most likely to his defeat next election day?

As Ben F. famously said, "Lost time is never found again." Writing letters to politicians is a colossal waste of valuable time better spent elsewhere...



For all the Spellcheck Nazis: The title is spelled as intended.

A Timely Reminder

Originally posted just a few months ago, the crumbling of society has accelerated, exacerbated by an aggressively emboldened - or increasingly desperate - MSM to mis- and disinform anyone attempting to pay attention via their "News". Feel free to share with your friends, especially those having trouble with discernment. BW When searching for the reason why things go wrong, stop when you get to the Media. The Media is our Teacher. It's the whole world's teacher.    Everything we learn, we learn from the Media. With screens, cameras, actors and glib, well-coiffed hosts, radio and TV signals, cable, microwave, publishing, the all-powerful Internet with its own 'social media', it instructs us hourly, daily, weekly, month in, year out. The classroom is anywhere; it's ubiquitous. Class is in session even when school is closed. The course are Obedience, Submission, Conformity, Regimentation. There is no 'graduation'. There is no individual achievement, on

Dear Dr Fauci

NOTE: Linked below is the most comprehensive, direct, factual and professional peer-to-peer confrontation of Dr. Anthony Fauci I've seen. It's long. It poses direct questions to Fauci that likely reflect the same questions you have had - but not answered. There is no way this Open Letter can be construed as "conspiracy theory" or the product of a "special interest group" with a profit motive similar to the purported connections between Fauci and Bill Gates. Take the few minutes it will require to read and adsorb the entire piece. Yes, there are a few "medical" terms but nothing that will obscure the totality of the gauntlet thrown at the feet of Dr. Fauci. His various, often oblique or contradictory pronouncements taken as 'gospel' by power-crazed politicians have killed thousands, ruined businesses, even entire cities. Demand answers by writing directly to him directly and your various representatives. Share this with everyone yo

The Color of Crime

In the Age of BLM, here are some stats you may find informative - maybe even useful: • Black males age 18-35 years of age are only 1.8% of the U.S. population, yet have committed 52% of homicides from 1980-2008. Black males (all ages) are only 6% of the U.S. population, yet commit 46% of all violent crimes, and 50% of the gun homicides. If Blacks were removed from the equation, the U.S. gun homicide rate would be equal to Great Britain's, who have some of the most restrictive gun control laws in the world. • The Black homicide rate is 17 per 100,000, a rate over 9x that of the White rate, and comparable to some of those most murderous countries in the world. If the homicide rate for the U.S. were the White-only rate, the homicide rate would drop 84%, making the U.S. rate comparable to European countries. • According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics 2018 survey of criminal victimization, there were 593,598 interracial violent victimizations (ex
