I attempt to get to the point. Keep each statement, comment, and question short and concise, I try not to waste your time.
 I welcome debate. I do not claim to know everything, nor to I claim to always be right. The best comment ever received showed me to be wrong, I learned from it. That post was deleted.

Politicians, news reporters, and pundits invent labels attempting to spin public opinion.  This “spin” degrades the debate.  On this site, I rename current topics in order to focus on the issues rather than inflammatory rhetoric. For Example: The term “Obamacare” needs to die. The law is “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act” or “ACA”.

Just a few quotes I find speak to this blog.

If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be.
—Thomas Jefferson

“The ignorance of the oppressed is strength for the oppressor.”
A.R. Bernard

“The distrust of wit is the beginning of tyranny.”
Edward Abbey

“I was in the kitchen drinking coffee when I heard Coretta cry, “Martin, Martin, come quickly!” I put down my cup and ran toward the living room. As I approached the front window Coretta pointed joyfully to a slowly moving bus: “Darling, it’s empty!”
Martin Luther King, Jr., The Autobiography of Martin Luther King, Jr.

“In a society in which equality is a fact, not merely a word, words of racial or sexual assault and humiliation will be nonsense syllables.”
Catharine A. MacKinnon

“oppression is accepting the assumptions other people make about you”

“The oppressor is never as free as they think they are”
Darnell Lamont Walker

    “Do remember, though, that sometimes the people you oppress become mightier than you would like.”
    ― Veronica Roth, Insurgent

  3. “The distrust of wit is the beginning of tyranny.”
    ― Edward Abbey

    When reading that I can’t help but think of the GOP platform in TX where they explicitly state they are against critical thinking because it leads to challenging authorities.

    • I did enjoy the video. Thank you. Clowns and Jokers with the middle being stuck between is an accurate description of congress.

    It seemed to relate to your above title. Congress? It seems the general thinking seems to be, “What’s In It For Me?” But, I don’t want to throw to many stones. They might come get me.

    • America will remain the “Land of the Free” only if it remains the “home of the brave”. Never be afraid of speaking truth.
      Never be to proud to be corrected.
      Thanks for your comment JK. I agree with the “what’s in it for me” congressional attitude.

    Suppose you were an idiot, and suppose you were a member of Congress; but I repeat myself.

    There is no distinctly American criminal class – except Congress.

  9. Hi – thanks for having a look at my post about the rooks (http://ja2da,com) – sorry no Americans, no politics and no meaningful quotes – You sort of wonder why I bother really.
