About Me

Quotes I like: "Prediction is very difficult, especially concerning the future." "There are some things so serious that you have to laugh at them. __ Niels Bohr Given his contribution to the establishment of quantum mechanics, I guess it's not surprising he had such a quirky of sense of humor. ......................."Deliberate misinterpretation and misrepresentation of another's position is a basic technique of (dis)information processing" __ I said that

The GOP's reliance on hysterical talk is an admission that they have no ideas or solutions to offer

The GOP by their repetitive use of hysterical rhetoric hope (not without reason, - it does work) to get the ignorant and easily manipulated to start running fearfully to their promised deliverance from the arch evil Democrats. It seems their only tactic to win an election is to depict Obama as some sort of incarnate evil. This works when dealing with mental dwarfs and more average type people during times of confusion, dissappointment and frustration (even when the condition is the result of Corporate Lobbyist party policies). And of course, an important principle is REPETITION, repetition, ... repetition.

A brief sampling of GOP demagoguery:

John Boehner: "It will be armaggedon, if HCR passes."

Boehner: "...he's a dead man when he goes back to his district." - referring to a Democratic representative from Ohio who voted for HCR.

Sharon Angle on the possibility of the relection of Harry Reid: "...we may have to resort to second amendment solutions"

Palin: "Don't retreat, RELOAD!"


When the subject comes up of the toxic atmosphere of the political debate the Republicans (and their Corporate Media Disinforming Obfuscating Operatives) are quick to claim that "Well, the Dems do it too!".

Here is a good article from the Hill that addresses that fraudulent argument/excuse.

Second Amendment solutions

There is no parity between "the right and the left" in the politics of hate in the America of 2011. Yes, some on the left say things I do not agree with, or approve of, and they should be criticized when they do. But the politics of hate, which I have been warning about for over a year, are heard far more from the right than the left these days.

I do not recall anyone from the left going to town meetings of members of Congress and shouting down elected officials to prevent them from talking to constituents.

I do not recall anyone from the left going to town meetings brandishing guns. I do not recall anyone from the left suggesting that guns are a solution to political differences in any way, by any person, for any reason, as Angle did in Nevada.

America does not need right-wing ideologues or political haters questioning our president's faith in Christianity, or his Americanism, or comparing him to Adolf Hitler, and it is profoundly wrong and unwise when some party leaders refuse to unequivocally condemn these things.

THis is a good article to bookmark for use and reference in 'discussions' on or off the internet. Anybody who has other articles along this line which they can reference (& provide links to) I would certainly like to be made aware of them.
