The Search For Pundits Who Have Reasonably Fair Political Views

Are there any Pundits that provide political commentary that is reasonable, sensible, intelligent, and fair? The TV Pundits who are versed on international and domestic politics do seem to have limitation on time for presenting a coherent assessment. Maybe some of the people who worked within former White House administrations are best at this, but it usually is far from being middle of the road commentary. Just to pull a name up as someone who may have gained trust among the most Americans, I’d look back to TV broadcaster Walter Cronkite who said “In seeking truth you have to get … Continue reading The Search For Pundits Who Have Reasonably Fair Political Views

Unnecessary Certifications/Professionalism

This is a short essay on the unscrupulous tactics used to exclude people from careers and professions.   We’re talking about the exclusion/denial of people who deserve the opportunities, and those people with the talent to succeed in a specific, particular occupation. The average high school graduate or college graduate would in many instances be capable of learning to do the tasks of the job once they are hired. However those people are being closed out and delayed in having these opportunities to work. It simply happens when a clique develops within a specified field of work, and then those … Continue reading Unnecessary Certifications/Professionalism

Politics – The Pendulum Has Swung

The many impressions and perspectives of the professional pundits this election season have been startling.  The pendulum swing as evidenced by extreme political correctness (otherwise known as censorship) the hammer of social engineering may have advanced too fast and too hard whereas the rebound effect is in progress. It is likely that most of us will recall that an ‘action’ has a tendency of an equal and opposite reaction.  From this point of view the actions have been extreme so the reaction is also extreme in that the status quo was beat back.  Some might want to say the election … Continue reading Politics – The Pendulum Has Swung

The New Phobia – Normphobia

It’s time for a new phobia word because the establishment has a phobia, an irrational fear, a blind-spot of shocking proportions that is so extreme that it bends reality far away from the norms of human activities, biology, and nature generally.   The new phobia  is “NORMPHOBIA”, meaning the irrational fear of the norm, fear of what is truly normal in the way humans behave,  the ways in which they naturally act in public and in private.   Normphobia is the irrational fear of the “Average Joe”, fear of the average hard working population, fear of allowing people of all … Continue reading The New Phobia – Normphobia

Gun Control & Mental Illness

Gun Control & Mental Illness The Guns Control vs Mental Illness Control dilemma that has been posited by many people is a fallacy argument.  There are plenty of people walking around free with mental health diagnoses that are not receiving the treatment they need.  Just look at the homeless population (as a small sample) who are people that the established experts would rather let stay out of institutions.  These people are walking around without being required to be supervised, and they often end up in trouble and/or hurting innocent people. The psychiatrists and psychologists have been negligent in appropriately getting … Continue reading Gun Control & Mental Illness

Sad Lessons From National Political Polls Explained

The following is from Stephanie Slade of Reason Magazine: What Can We Learn From National Primary Polling? Virtually Nothing. Who’s up? Who’s down? Who cares? Stephanie Slade from the July 2015 issue – In the spring and early summer of 2007, the frontrunners for the Democratic and Republican nominations for president were—by healthy double-digit margins—New York Sen. Hillary Clinton and former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani. Oops. It’s become a cliche to joke about these comically inaccurate results from exactly eight years ago, but they are far from the exception. National survey research, even right before primary elections and … Continue reading Sad Lessons From National Political Polls Explained
