FDR may have created it, but Wilson brought the attitude of disdain for ordinary Americans that in the minds of Leftist Democrats “justified” it.

MM, Capricorn? Capricorns worry about what to do if the fridge light doesn’t go out when they close the door.

Melinda, that article was farce from the picture at the top. "Shooting-range owner John Deloca aims a pistol last week in the New York City borough Queens." Aim? Really? The slide on the gun is back as if locked in a position to twist and remove the barrel elevated well off the center line where one could aim. The article itself addresses the possibility an increase of the pool of available guns can have an impact on the use of guns in crimes. Well, duh! To bad the article admits the deterrence effect of guns — the point of the damn article — could not be addressed. In other words, there was no article to write, but they wrote it anyway. No science and no journalism, wrapped together.

We’ve scaled back syndicated columns, too.

If it’s for the Queen, it’s okay in my book.

Thank you, Clarice. Posted on FB and Twitter: Clarice Feldman’s cool, calm analysis of a tragedy that explains why you should not trust writing by most corporate media or opinions of many politicians, and why you should better understand the job of the police.

TM’s talking guns on Twitter. Not much room to respond. On a different FB entry talking guns I replied: The problem isn’t guns, its people who have little to look forward to because the incentives to work to better one’s life have been trashed, because the skills that help one to advance have been driven out of government schools, because re-validating why character matters isn’t part of schooling or many homes, because close-knit families are discouraged, because politics and corporate media lost their way, and because authoritarians want to suppress the value of individuality and excellence for their own selfish reasons. Guns? Guns and violence are a red herring drawn across the path of discussion.
Leftists — especially Chicago leftists — use any tragedy to increase their power, “Just give me a little more control and we’ll fix it.” Sorry, Charlie, your “solution” causes more problems than it solves.

Nice summary Clarice. It seems universally true that news sources alternate between Sussman and Sussmann.

Clarice, what quiet, compelling precision! Without saying it specifically, you have made complicit everyone who sees what they did and yet refuses to be outraged. Thank you.

Not sure I want to watch something so depressing.

Solid article, Clarice, saying it more and better than the #MSM.

MM, postmodernism is a stealth crime that steals civility. People will “feel” you are overreacting until they see it for themselves. That’s one reason for the website’s samizdat Twitter links. They serve as a daily reminder that they don’t respect you. From Individuals, Journalism, and Society: “... Premises, warrants, evidence, and conclusions are tools that can be used to come to understanding but that are more often used to bludgeon you into submission. Language does matter. Author William Gass said we use words to club the living into food.” “So we have to defend ourselves against misuse of language.” “The game today is to assassinate people with words and confuse others along the way.”

jim_nj, I’ll populate the links slowly, including more essays and editorials from the past that seem still relevant. Next is a 30-year bibliography that should have been included in my schooling.

Clarice, I don’t believe people see or appreciate the scope of what is happening under their noses.

Thanks, Clarice. I appreciate what people have commented on.

Thanks, bubarooni. I hadn’t thought that there was not yet a second page. Scrubbed it until there is one.

Told Mrs. sbw last night, that I imagined there were few that could write about the things I write and also know enough HTML, CSS, and Ubuntu commands to get it all online. That is, except for a number of people around here. :-)

Roe is "good" law in the sense that it was able to be succinctly followed. Roe is "bad" law in the sense that it does not follow from the Constitution and should properly be left to the states. The moral case is a separate issue.
