Stop saying Right Wing it's the GOP

Stop saying Right Wing it's the GOP
A 1930s nationality
Stop cringing in the face of vicious acts
Stop heeding Big Lies that deny the facts


Charles Sanders Peirce - Thinking in Threes

The GOP tells lies as sweet as silk


The GOP tells lies as sweet as silk
Funded by the Koch's sorry ilk
Their work consists of treating women ill
As corrupt forces all their coffers fill

Americans for Prosperity is the Koch's PAC


Americans for Prosperity is the Koch's PAC
The more the Kochs prosper the more the workers lack
The products they deliver give you chances to fight back
And then when November comes you can give them the sack

The GOP has gone subliminal

Their efforts will prove  ineffectual
They're destined to end up like Hannibal

Santorum Expletives and Liberal Obfuscations


I am hardly for Santorum in any respect but I did watch the exchange in which he lost his temper with a NYTimes reporter. In my view Santorum had it right, in context. And he is even more right now. Santorum is being interpreted as saying what he did not actually say. And this to me is an indication of a general knee-jerk  or lockstep myopia on the liberal media side. We do not need Santorum to tell us how inadequate Romney is. Memes are like gossip. They grow and gain traction regardless of their truth..

We Need a New Sociology

How about we divide society into three types and then concede that all three are parts of everyone? In other words, we start thinking of individuals as a spectrum and not in terms that limit their freedom to be what they can be.

There is first the person who has no need of a physician, to use one of Jesus' phrases. Perhaps the largest bulk of humanity are those who function with a measure of responsibility, a measure of tolerance, a measure of helpfulness and a measure of democratic willingness to grant the same rights to all.

Next is the person Jesus designates as a sinner. He does not use this as an invidious designation. It is more a matter of fact acknowledgement that some, for whatever reason, engage in conscious wrong-doing. Some are compelled to do wrong. Sex workers. Child soldiers. Others - everyone actually - just does it.

Finally, there is the person who has power over others and misuses it, intentionally or not.

A new sociology would begin with a universal understanding based on the above. In other words, it would begin by positing ontological values that are universal and then observing how people relate to these values.

Take these as ontological values embedded in each person – non-idolatry, tolerance, democracy, helpfulness. The first sort above accepts these. The second sort will at least put on no airs, defer to others without judging, grant rights to all and offer a helping hand. The third sort will regard all this with profound skepticism. Nihilism is necessary protective garb for the powerful. Penitence is seen as an absurd exercise.

(Remember that at the start I said there is some of each of the three in all of us.)

The sociology that would rise from the above is simply an application of intelligent observation to the way things are. My own opinion is that Jesus provides the sociology we need to see things correctly and advance society.

Ronald Reagan Would Be A Democrat Today

Newly Found Reagan Journal Reveals the Former President Regretted Becoming Republican | Digg Politics:

I am also saddened that the Republican party of today thinks I wanted God in the White House and to rule the nation. That is not true at all, after I was nearly assassinated I wanted God more in my own personal life. I acknowledged that I was to be here for a reason and serve him and my nation together, but they always stayed separate in my mind just as in the Constitution. The Republican party today merely just uses God as a means to get votes, - Ronald  Reagan

Today we cannot run no we must stand


Today we cannot run no we must stand
And face the phalanx of Rove faces
And say our no to their disgraces
And then reclaim our broken land
