 Position Statement  (6)
 - James Howard Kunstler - 
Despite his deformities, Mr. Trump obviously loves this country, and is doing what he thinks is best to save it. While it is quite plain that the Democratic Party hates America, and is openly working to tear it down. That is pretty much what the next election will come down to, try to save the country, or finish destroying it. The Libertarians would like to do a reset back to the Jeffersonian era, but that is completely overshadowed by the fighting in the streets, but who knows, maybe people are giving some thought to a 'live and let live' philosophy and a way out of this horrendous debt. I aint holdin my breath.

 George Carlin : Don’t vote  (15)
 - Food for thought - 
I have not voted at any level of government elections for decades. The simple reason is, if you do cast a vote, you are essentially encouraging the Bastards. They are not worthy of a vote. Trump and Biden are good examples

Hi Gypsy, I thought we generally had more in agreement than not, but se est la vie. No worries, sorry for the mis-reading.

Hello J. When I write a comment here it is ALWAYS to the person who is writing to me. In the case you're referring to above, the comment I wrote here was to James Kunstler: the author who was writing to me (in the General Public kind of way.) When I begin my comment with "I see you're right James" it should be obvious who I'm commenting to. If I were to reply to something YOU said ~ as I am at this very moment ~ it would be directed to the person who is writing to me: you.

Yes; I read your comments. I realize ANY reply I would write concerning your views, because of our opposing viewpoints on every issue, would be regarded as "inflammatory" ~ and so I NEVER comment on your opinions. Over the years it has turned out to be the Wise Choice.

If you are referring to my comments, you need to read them again, or perhaps I need to write them more clearly. I don't think James is any more or less racist than the average person. I was trying to point out that part of the problem is how we talk about it. To paraphrase Morgan Freeman, we need to STOP talking about race. The problems of urban decay are not necessarily based on race, they are definitely based on years of Progressive Socialist policy, i.e. Seattle WA, Portland OR, and pretty much all urban areas of CA.
The issues are multifaceted, you can't just pin it on 1 thing. Yet that is just what everybody seems to want to do.

I see you're right James. You can't say ANYTHING relevant to understanding the REAL situation without being called "racist." Yelling out RACIST to every comment made by a white person has become as American as Mom and Apple Pie ! !

Habits of speech need to be addressed by all parties in America. You correctly identified that Black American's patterns of speech are holding them back, it makes them sound unintelligent, when that is not the case. However, many of your remarks, while technically correct, can be interpreted as purely racist, when that might not be the intention. For instance, "Many cities are run by black mayors, police chiefs, and district attorneys where, year by year, social dysfunction has only gotten worse." This statement implies that the social dysfunction is because the cities leaders are black, which is plainly racist. However, the cities decay is more likely due to poor policy choices which are (mis)guided by an adherence to Democrat liberal progressivism. Getting at the root of the matter has nothing to do with skin color. Our societies' policies, which are based on racism, have caused the current situation. End the racist policies, and we may begin to correct the things you identified in your article.
