Name-calling is juvenile, and hardens the target against your arguments. Fabrications are easy to knock aside — like the silly New York Times article. And the irrational — like pretending that you know anyone else’s experience, and how it affected him or her — makes it valid to suggest that the rest of your arguments are just as unserious.
Avoid the hasty conclusion that suggests that you think there’s only your way or the idiot’s way.
Others who believe differently are NOT, by definition, idiots. Others who think differently are NOT, by definition, bigots or racists. Others who perceive things differently are NOT, by definition, fascists or Nazis.

The difference between the political Right and the political Left — neatly summed up.

If you want to see where the world will end up, look to the thinking of the political right-wing in America today. If “evolution” is a thing, then the world will evolve toward the most advanced thinking there is. That’s, let’s face it, obviously on the political Right. The only question is when will the rest of the world understand this? Continue reading Do You Realize…

First: a rather lengthy bit of background: A few posts ago, Brothawolf and I had an interaction in which he alleged that I censored one of his posts. I did not do that. I have the contents of the post to which he’s referring, because he re-posted it on his own blog, after having claimed that we’d censored it on ours. To repeat: it never arrived here. Therefore, I have to conclude that it was really a cheap attempt by Brothawolf to manufacture a wrong done to him that was not actually done. Continue reading Response to Brothawolf
Bottom Line: When the framers wrote the First Amendment, the idea was almost completely unknown that a fundamental tenet of one religion [Islam] would be that there should be no freedom of religion, for any other religion.
No “First Amendment” could even be written in the context of any mix of faiths that might include Islam. At some point, we’ll all have to confront that reality in a rational way. Continue reading Islam in The 21st Century

We white people do have a continuing debt to Black Americans. It’s no longer a monetary debt; that’s been covered in full, and them some. And it certainly didn’t do them any good. But it could have. And it was what they, the ones on the left that is, demanded. What we did wrong was to allow only the left to speak for Black Americans. If we’d allowed the right to speak for Black Americans too, we’d have had some real policies that would have done real good. As Chief Justice John Roberts said once, “The way to stop discriminating by race is to stop discriminating by race.” The solution from the right would have been simple and effective: “Stop discriminating by race.” Continue reading More VERY Blunt Perspectives About Race (Part II)
For black couples, who have a kid — two-parent households — the poverty rate is seven percent. For all people, of those who (1) graduate from high school, (2) don’t have a child out of wedlock, and (3) get a job, the poverty rate is less than two percent. That’s it. If you start from that basis, you have a greater than 98% chance of never being poor in America! Continue reading Black Americans: Do You Want To Prosper in America Today? (Part II)
