Monday Open Thread

  • by: Colorado Pols

“Prevarication, like honesty, is reflexive, and soon becomes a sturdy habit, as reliable as truth.”

–Norman Mailer

  1. What if you threw a "free speech rally" for white supremacists, and nobody came?

    Milo Yiannopoulos, Anne Coulter, Steve Bannon, and others planned a free speech rally on the Berkeley campus, but canceled at the last minute. Nevertheless, the University spent millions on security.

    The whole thing looked to be a setup from the start, allowing the right wing stars to complain that their "free speech rights" were violated by the University and campus leftists.

    They may still have the confrontation they craved, in the next few days.

  2. RE: Anthem controversy

    Trump should have keep his mouth shut about players protesting, but we know he'll never do that. Trump is Trump.

    I personally find that "taking a knee" or other forms of protest disrespecting the flag or national anthem offensive, although I defend the right of those in protest to do it.

    I defend the right of those in protest to honor the sacrifice of my father who spent 3 years as a Navy Seabee in the jungles of the Pacific fighting for the rights of those who now protest. My brother has the flag that was on his coffin.

    I defend the right of those in protest to honor the sacrifice of my mother who was an Army nurse in the Pacific theater and  the occupation of Japan serving to protect the rights of those who protest. I have the flag that was on her coffin.



    1. My father, a highly-decorated WWII veteran of the Army Air Corps, firmly believed in the First Amendment, particularly the right to dissent. He drew much derision during protests of the Vietnam war but it strengthened his belief. Fighting for all rights is what our military does.


  3. Locking arms, good …. kneeling, bad

    Did everyone the catch those teams whose members did both?  Probably really confused him.

    Well, this took the spotlight off Rocketman for a day or two.

    And tomorrow night, the spotlight will be on Roy Moore as the newly-minted GOP Senate candidate in Alabama.

  4. This week is the annual Banned Books Week, sponsored as always by the American Library Association. It's another chance to stand up to the narrow minded bigots of the religious right, and their followers.

    1. Great article. Thanks for sharing, Pseudo. You see problem here? Where would those poor, impoverished souls from CCA (I think they have a kinder, gentler name now?) go to find the soda fountain of justice  public subsidies if we decriminalized?!  

      One attraction of the Portuguese approach is that it’s incomparably cheaper to treat people than to jail them. The Health Ministry spends less than $10 per citizen per year on its successful drug policy. Meanwhile, the U.S. has spent some $10,000 per household (more than $1 trillion) over the decades on a failed drug policy that results in more than 1,000 deaths each week.

        1. Straight up, pseudo. Most people don't get addicted to heroin off the street. They get hooked on opioid pain pills after an injury or surgery. For the longest time, doctors were downright stingy with pain meds, fearing addiction. Then they got chewed out (and sued) for leaving people in genuine pain. So they eased up on the restrictions and here we are. There has to be a happy medium somewhere.


  5. FauxNews now reporting TinyHands got duped (again). He was shown a seven-month old video before he went on his Twitter rampage on the Iran Nuke Deal.  Was Melania distracting him again with that big ol' diamond of hers she turns into a laser light on demand? I'm on a rather long flight right now with internet access and TV. A dangerous combination.
