Fascism Builds Brick by Brick

Wednesday, August 1st, 2018

This is how fascism builds. Brick by Brick. Lies about foreigners taking over your country. Lies about how we need more control. Fake solutions to fake problems. Crowds cheering for fake solutions to problems. Demagogues burned down democracy. “You know if you go out and you want to buy groceries you need a picture on […]

“You shall not wrong or oppress a resident alien, for you were aliens in the land of Egypt.”

Saturday, June 30th, 2018

Pretty clear isn’t it? “You shall not wrong or oppress a resident alien, for you were aliens in the land of Egypt.” Exodus 22:21 How did this get warped into “Separate their families and throw the children in prison.” Greed and cruelty. Thank Ayn Rand. Thank You Milton Friedman. Thank you Frederick Hayek. You taught […]

Donald’s Deals

Friday, January 26th, 2018

Growing up I’d love to spend summers at my maw maw’s house. One of the daily rituals was watching game shows including “Let’s Make a Deal.” We got a chuckle when someone picked a Zonk, one of the meaningless prizes.

“America is great because it is good.”

Saturday, October 15th, 2016

Dealing with reality is an essential part of growing up.  A wise person can weigh risks and benefits before making a decision.  At Sunday night’s debate, we saw two different portraits of America.  Secretary Hillary Clinton said repeatedly, “America is great because it is good.”  Donald Trump recited a list of evil things about Modern […]

Statue of Liberty vs. Herman Cain

Tuesday, October 18th, 2011

Old version, “Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!” Statue of Liberty, American Icon New version, “It’s going to be 20 feet high. It’s going to have […]
