Chickens Have Come Home to Roost

What a different results for the second place candidates at the RNC and DNC.  Both have supporters that said they well never vote for the winning candidate because of the differences in ideology between them.  Bernie Sanders, a socialist that votes with Democrats and Elizabeth Warren the wing closest to Bernie support the winning candidate and her programs.  Bernie saying that some common ground has been reached.  But in practice from past experience the agenda of Hillary Clinton will always be more important then the party platform that significantly reflects Elizabeth's more socialist ideology.  The money funding the campaign is inconsistent with this platform.RNC in contrast Ted Cruz the second place candidate did not support Donald Trump but instead supported conservative principles tha…

HATE INVADES WRITER BEAT

When I saw the convoluted innuendo that Billy Roper was posting on WB, I thought that there was far too much research and copy/paste for one guy! An organization had to be behind this, So a little simple research revealed a Neo Nazi hate group.   https://www.splcenter.org/hatewatch/2016/02/03/w…

War is a Racket

United States Marines usually aren't known to be anti-capitalist pacifists. Quite the opposite. They always have had, and always will have a well-deserved reputation for being brave and ferocious fighters, whether on offense or defense. Marines have always been considered elite troops. General John …

For the first time on writerbeat, I am following somebody.   How this came about it kind of odd. On Facebook I've gotten into a long back and forth with a guy I went to high school with about debt. First, he believes that the debt is the fault of the democrats exclusively. WHAT? Have you conven…

I have to admit it's brilliant, pushing that old white male bag of wind aside and putting Hillary on the ticket for President.  I wasn't sure if it could be done with such a big "men's club", but they did it and most of the women I've talked to are going to vote for her "because she's a woman".…

Tuesday at City Hall had the feel of the Monday after Senior Week. Plenty of venues still around, but a few people didn’t realize it was over. The “Bernie or Bust” bullhorn crew was gathered not far from the statue of the late Mayor Frank L. Rizzo and the lunchtime harrumphin…

The Bane of Democracy

    This is difficult for me to write even this short essay. . . my cognitive dissonance in reviewing my own pathological altruism. I have been very sympathetic to Jews, blacks, women, to nearly the point of voluntary self-flagellation. Yet I hadn't realized (the painful part) that my belo…

Boston Wake Up

An industry should have the intestinal fortitude to police itself for THEIR common good and the Publics. In the 1950's and 60's the auto industry made cars go faster and faster without no regard for safety. In 1970's the US government mandated air bags for all cars. That was the alpha and omega for …

An American Milestone

When Bernie Sanders won his first primary, he made history as the first Jewish man to win in a presidential primary.   I was very moved the moment he said, "I move that Hillary Clinton be selected as the nominee of the Democratic party for the President of the United States," because in that m…

Humor Tames the Jersey Devil?

On our way home from the beach, my husband and I took a shortcut to Pennsylvania through the New Jersey Pine Barrens. As we headed into the forest, a large, dark figure hovered above us. Finally, it set itself down on the road causing my husband to bring our car to a screeching halt. Miffed at the r…

Religious Racism

The self-righteous anger and grandstanding and the murderous hatred of recent religious crimes in France, Germany and those that have been going on in the Middle East and elsewhere for decades is ghastly. So far, the Liberal establishment, fixated with melting-pot dreams of the 1960s has stood by, i…
