Say His Name: George Floyd

Friday, June 5th, 2020

“As the former Chief of Police in Sherman, and now the Sheriff of Grayson County, I have always held firm to the belief that every officer involved in a situation requiring an investigation deserves due process and I withhold my final opinion until a thorough investigation is completed.

Banks of the Rubicon

Tuesday, June 2nd, 2020

Written by a friend. You need to understand what is happening right before your eyes.______________________________________________________________ So let’s just be very clear about a few things. Last night, Federal Law Enforcement was ordered to use violent tactics to disperse peaceful protesters in Lafayette Park. These protesters last night were not violating any law, they were not […]

Keep Calm and Tell the Truth.

Saturday, March 7th, 2020

Lies, not the truth, cause mass panic and paranoia. If the Chinese Communists had been open to the truth, the world would be a better place. At first, it tried to punish the dissenters. Only reluctantly did it decide to face reality. Dissent created the Modern World. Martin Luther, Copernicus, Voltaire, Wollstonecraft, Darwin, Plessy, Carson, […]

Res publica: A Public, not a private, thing. “INSKEEP: At the start, we asked if the evidence shows an abuse of power. So here is another way to phrase the decision facing lawmakers – do they think the president asked for investigations in the national interest or his own?” Take 11 minutes to listen, or […]

We’re All Alice

Thursday, October 3rd, 2019

“The Hatter’s remark seemed to her to have no sort of meaning in it, and yet it was certainly English.”  Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland (1911, p.101) Words ought to have meaning.  For the vast majority of us they do.  Unfortunately, we have walked through the looking glass and confront a Mad Hatter.   We’re all Alice […]
