Happy Friday to everyone, and this will be my last post for this week. I'll be back on Monday and hopefully with some pieces worth your time. Some of my commentaries are now appearing on America Out Loud, and I will be sending some articles for their perusal this weekend.
I subscribe to a lot of sites that deal with every issue facing humanity, not all are conservative sites. You have to read both sides, since you can't overcome positions if you don't know what their positions are, and that includes both social domestic issues and geopolitical issues.
Some of it's free and some of it I pay for, and I wish I could absorb it all and cover it all, I can't! There's a reason news sites have people that specialize in areas of concern. There's just way too much going on each and every day for one person to handle intelligently. One thing is clear, there's always so much going on specialists will never run out of things to write about, nor is there for a generalist like myself.
So, since there is so much going on, I'm left with scanning these sites and picking and choosing what interests me, at least what interests me the most. Since everything interests me, I have to be selective.
I just finished reading a commentary in Tablet entitled, Lee Bollinger, Columbia University’s Invisible Man, which I found insightful. I sent them an e-mail telling them who I am, with this comment.
Will that impress them? No! Will they respond? Based on past experience, No! So why bother?
I put academics in the same category as military officers, most of whom I despised while in the service. They're not leaders, they're all part of the go along to get along crowd that's destroying what once was the most stable and successful society the world has ever known, and someone needs to say so. If they read it, which they probably won't, but if they do read it, they'll ignore it. But if they do read it, that would be good enough for me. A pin prick here and a pin prick there, and after a while, it starts to hurt, much like my friend Robin Itzler who's involved with Californian Republican politics publishing a very conservative e-mail newsletter, Patriot Neighbors, which many Republicans in California are uncomfortable with because the leadership isn't all that conservative, and that's an issue nationwide, and looks like it will continue to be for a while now. For my California readers, if interested in receiving her newsletter, contact her at, firstname.lastname@example.org
In the meanwhile, enjoy!!!
