Re: Polyticks: Bob Butler's Perspective

It is just that kill a black man and you will be tried. Hold an insurrection, and you will be tried. Try voter fraud, and you will be tried. Harass a black serviceman, and you will be sued. See the general pattern? The values are shifting and sticking with the old values will get you in trouble. Wi...

Re: Polyticks: Bob Butler's Perspective

The unity of a regeneracy is imperfect, more so when the culture is split as evenly as the US Civil War and today. Still, even in the US Civil War we have the Mississippi county of Jones and the nomination and early lead of McClellan in the 1864 election before Atlanta fell. Neither faction was tota...

Re: Polyticks: Bob Butler's Perspective

The question of where the country is going, and how the catastrophe in Washington will end, is discussed frequently in this forum. And actually I've answered this question probably dozens of times in the past already, but perhaps it's time to do so again, by responding to a couple of e-mail message...

Re: Polyticks: Bob Butler's Perspective

No one ever talks about WHY that all happened in Germany. Why? The propagandists don't want people to tell the truth. The only major story about Hitler's Germany is just how much more the Germans were advanced than nearly all other groups. Beyond their pagan and demonic elements they had, for mater...

Re: Polyticks: Bob Butler's Perspective

I guess the main point is that it is not too hard to predict disasters in far away areas of the world where racism, oppression and violence are common. It is another thing to advocate racism, oppression and violence in your own culture.

Re: Polyticks: Bob Butler's Perspective

Actually, the limit is that you cannot interpret one right as giving the ability to cause harm to others or infringe the rights of others. You can not deny my right to free speech if I am doing something other than those two things. The point is, if you are encouraging racism and the oppression of m...

Re: Polyticks: Bob Butler's Perspective

What I mean by values changing is reflected in the news. I think it was Virginia where some cops are being sued for stopping and harassing a black man actively on duty in the military. They put George Floyd’s killer on trial. The recent killer in Brooklyn Heights Minnesota resigned. If you are into ...

Re: Polyticks: Bob Butler's Perspective

That is what you are going to get. Minorities have been oppressed in the US since they arrived in the slave ships. It is going to stop eventually. The greatest problems in a culture are addressed in a crisis. The worst conservative values are subdued. Get used to it. My predicting this is similar to...

Re: Polyticks: Bob Butler's Perspective

Have you had enough of this? If you voted for Biden, you voted for this. Right now, if the police continue murdering black folks that is what you are going to get. The cops will eventually learn. This time, I believe the cop when she claimed an accident, but I am dubious that everyone hanging an ai...

Re: Polyticks: Bob Butler's Perspective

MSNBC last night had some cameras near Minneapolis where the latest police shooting of an unarmed black person occurred. They had their camera pan first to a police station, where protestors were confronting police, some of whom exchanged fireworks for tear gas canisters. The camera then panned to w...
