Re: “Chomsky’s Back

^ Answering my own question, apparently, yes.

I went to hear this lunatic and felt rather put upon as the adoring and similarly lunatic audience disparaged my beliefs with applause and nodding heads.

It was interesting to hear for example, that despite, (by his own admission) 90% of Ukrainians voting in favor of joining NATO, he felt it was incumbent upon the west to insure that they became a "neutral" state so as to not offend the Russians, who wish to crush Ukraine.

On the other hand, he simultaneously believes that we should leave Iran alone to pursue a nuclear bomb making program.

So according to this great intellect we should: 1) force a sovereign state to become "neutral" all the while: 2) allowing a rouge, anti-west government, with a declared intent to annihilate another sovereign state, to develop nuclear weapons to bring about that outcome.

Such is the "clarity" of thinking of the "intellectual" mind. I'm glad that I'm just an average Joe without such critical thinking skills.

Re: “Chomsky’s Back

I often wonder, is "intellectual" a self-declared title, sort of like, "activist?"

Re: “Chomsky’s Back

This intellectual is convinced of america"s as an evil state, very much like those on the left that have a voice via Obama,s Admn. He believes that our decline on the world stage under Obama/Clinton / Kerry is a good thing. To appease our adversaries is a mission of his philosophy even as it will inevitably end in our destruction and that of our ally Israel and the Jewish people, who his ideas feel bring on the resurgence of anti- semitism. He should not be lauded...

Re: “The Best Show. 100% Female.

Who are these people who supposedly don't think women are funny?

I'm a man and I think funny women are funny. But the constant references to "people" who say "women aren't funny" may become a self fulfilling prophecy.

Re: “Time to Stand Up

The charade of 2015 played out all across the US is that because corporations/plutocrats get their stooge elected; it means he/she has a mandate from the people.

Nothing could be further from the truth.

Are we surprised by the new Governor's agenda; why?

We can't stop people from voting against their own interests, but we can exercise our recall option, which we might well lose, but the effort is what will count ultimately

Re: “It’s Christmas in Tucson, so of Course There’s a Santa Crawl

Jesus Christ is an instrument of peace. Where there is hatred, he sows love; where there is injury, he pardons; where there is doubt and despair, he brings hope; where there is ignorance and bigotry, he brings understanding and tolerance; where there is sadness, he brings joy.

Jesus Christ taught not so much to seek to be understood as to understand; to be loved as to love; for it is in giving that we receive; it is in pardoning that we are pardoned; and it is through love that we are able to transform Ourselves and Human Society.

(Modified after: "Prayer of Saint Francis", Marquis de la Rouchetulon, L'Osservatore Romano, December 1916.)

Bisbee on New Year's Eve is like Mardi Gras in winter. Good music. Great restaurants. And good vibes.
