What we have to fear isn't just fear This friend of a friend of a friend is not a "bad" man. And that is the problem today, the one we need to be terrified of. It's not badness, necessarily. It's much more serious: it's profoundly stupid ignorance.

Our first responsibility is to accept it That ringing in our ears isn't tinnitus; it's our consciences reminding us of a moral fact: Even if the matter of culpability has been diluted by millions of others who also cast the ballots, we must share the blame, when there's blame that ought to be borne.

Paul Newman explains the Republican Party. "What we've got hee-ah is "fail-yah to com-municate.'" That infamous line from Paul Newman's 1967 movie, Cool Hand Luke, has so many applications, especially when the follow-up line is "Some men you just can't reach."

What sort of relationship are you looking for? When it comes to those we hire with our votes, we shouldn't be pondering whether he or she would make a wonderful neighbor, perhaps someone we'd like to socialize with, become fast buddies with. Can that person do the "job," will he or she represent our best interests?

Have you ever had a bronchial infection? Have you ever had a bronchial infection? A severe recession can be like that: requiring a heavy dose of government intervention. The "Great Recession" we experienced in the last years of the Bush administration required, but did not get from either the Bush or the Obama administrations, an adequately heavy dose of government intervention in the form of federal economic stimulus. What we got was too weak and too brief.

The question is: Are you completely nuts? Are we? Here's a rude fact of life that's sure to upset: Not all opinions are equal. It's why we consult those members of our society who have demonstrated and met certain standards of proficiency in the given subject matter. Or . . . at least why we should consult those members of our society who have demonstrated and met certain standards of proficiency in the given subject matter.

This is a test, but oh it is such an important one It matters . . . a great deal, a very great deal, that you scroll over the comments made by U.S. Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann, to highlight them, then hit the Ctrl-C on your keyboard, to paste them into a document that can be easily and immediately referenced.

In Memoriam to Memorial Day I no longer stand when the National Anthem is played. It is an abject lie. We are not the "home of the brave." Fewer than three percent of Americans bear the burden of defending on the ground any part of the ground we walk upon. And virtually none care to draw a cent from their personal accounts to help pay the tab.

Ms. Elizabeth Warren and the North Carolina weasel The folks in North Carolina's 10th must not care much about integrity, or intelligence. Just look who they elected to office.

What Ed Schultz said grieves me deeply. When Ed Schultz called Laura Ingraham a "right-wing slut," he concomitantly insulted all women, and that bothers me deeply.

Worse than December 7, 1941 They have now come for the Trade Unionists. They, including everyone who votes for them, have declared war upon us all! We either stand up . . . or we lay down with the pigs, to also eat their slop.

Have we all gone nuts Mr. Jones! George Bush was president. Hank Paulson was his Treasury Secretary. And when the country's financial roof collapsed in 2008, Mr. Paulson penned a 3-page bill that was in effect naught but an extortion note, "Hand me all your cash in unmarked 20's; $850 BILLION!

On choosing friends, lovers and associates How else can it be read than that those voting GOP in 2002, 2004, 2006, and 2008 supported those heinous, absolutely shameful policies? How else can it be read than that those so voting in those elections felt: "Screw the uniformed fools who stepped forward to serve the country"? And how else can it be read than that those who retained friendships with those who so voted did not also agree with those sentiments?

What a foul stew we're concocting "It's hard to overstate how destructive the economic ideas offered earlier this week by John Boehner. He proposes two things: large tax cuts for the wealthy that would increase the budget deficit while doing little to support the economy, and sharp spending cuts that would depress the economy while doing little to improve budget prospects. Fewer jobs and bigger deficits -- the perfect combination.

Conservatives and conservatism's book burning madness Conservatives are frightened little people whose base fears require they place in subjugation all who they fear might pose some threat to their senses of order . . . as if one could ever hold back the tides of change and progress, regardless whatever might could be summoned to the task.
