The Right’s New Left

I must be having a hard time understanding how folks think these days.  Back in the olden days, facts were facts, not that there weren’t grey areas; you could figure that most people were all on the same page. Maybe those guys in New Guinea who had been lost for centuries didn’t get it, but anyone in the US who had gone through sixth grade got science and history. Now folks just decide to deny expertise and choose their own reality. I love this concept. It almost seems that the folks who don’t believe in evolution are proving it by devolving in front of our eyes.

Non Judgmental?

I love “Pearls Before Swine”, but I have a real problem with this cartoon. Maybe it’s because I grew up before politically correct came into vogue. I can see not ragging on folks for their appearance, national origin, sexual identity and stuff like that. I draw the line there. I think that it is necessary to point out poor performance, flawed logic and fundamental stupidity.

Politics has gotten pretty scary. It’s not only that the politicians are crazy, it’s that the folks pulling the strings behind the scenes are dangerous.

Why I am here.

I often find myself reading an article, seeing a flick, hearing a song that I want to share and this might be the easiest way to do it. I have no desire to write a daily column or regular commentary, but sometimes I have something to say. This is where I will do it.
