Inspection- What Their Silence Says

by Ken Carman

 Like many people on the left I certainly have had my Facebook debates. I hate them, to be honest, because Facebook is a lousy venue for rational, thoughtful, discussion. You have to explain and that makes the post long, complicated and Inspection worse than anything else: intellectual and well thought out. Exactly the kind of post many Facebook users won’t: maybe even aren’t able to, read.
 Facebook does well with short, snippet, posts. It’s like a slightly more complex version of tweeting, which is also an insult. Facebook is a platform that serves bullies well, and enables them like stagnant water breeds mosquitoes under a hot sun.
 The most active partisans posters rarely hesitate to respond with mocking, insults and idiocy when confronted with an opinion they don’t like, except… Read more

Inspection- Of Republicons and Republocrats

by Ken Carman

 I have been an advocate for run off voting since I first looked into it after the 2000 election. But sans run off…
Inspection My father was a dedicated Conservative back when there was a difference between Conservative and Republican, and I used to help the party with elections in the 60s. I think we are a weaker nation now than then because we really have only two parties of any consequence, that have any true chance of winning, and both parties like it that way, are determined to keep it that way.
 The 4 major parties were Liberal, Democratic, Republican and Conservative. Now to get the party’s support these days a Republican has to be a Conservative, or what they call “Conservative” these days: most often a mix of the Fundamentalist Party, the NRA Party, the Libertarian Limited Party, the Anti-Worker Party and the War for Profit Party. But let’s call them the Republocons. Read more

Inspection- Here Comes One Party Rule

by Ken Carman

 The danger behind the The Nation‘s overdue article on the plan to end representative governance is not any mistake, or error… unless you include a lack of deeper analysis. Inspection While the MSM has been, at best, whistling past Kris Kolbach’s graveyard for the votes of groups who dare to not vote the politically correct way: otherwise known as Crosscheck, not even The Nation comes close to asking serious questions that must be asked.

Inspection- Do Not E-mail Me Again, Democratic Party, and STOP CALLING!

by Ken Carman

 There comes a time when the you realize the person who have been seeing isn’t taking the relationship seriously. Worse than that not only do they ignore your concerns, but they keep making promises, asking for money, and never fulfill those promises.
Inspection You really don’t want to break their heart, but sometimes you wonder if they have any heart left to break.
 This is how I feel about the Democratic Party.
 Democratic Party, you know I would never date the one I used to be with so many years ago. He’s become a bully and I swear he’s out to kill you. The party I left for him: my first, was useless. In the state where I lived I couldn’t even vote in a primary unless I joined some major party. Now my first party has been corrupted to the point they’re the bully’s puppy dog. The Conscience of a Conservative has turned into having no “conscience” at all.
 The second party, well I wasn’t with him very long. It became obvious he was becoming abusive. This should have been obvious for many years when he does anything to get in the way of those who disagree with him, no matter how dishonest, how cruel, how many lives are ruined. He treats those who dare to disagree with him like roaches he must exterminate. Still you let him take advantage of you over and over again. You ignore constant warnings from your friends. Read more

Inspection- No High Ground, No Pedestal

An open letter to some, not all, on the right.

by Ken Carman

 There comes a time when I simply can’t put out another we should get along type edition. This is definitely one of those times.Inspection
 Immediately after I heard about the shooting at the Republican ball game I checked what various news sources were saying about him, then I went to the Facebook page he was a member of: Terminate the Republican Party. Much has been made of the name, and I must admit: at best a bad choice. But no better than Hillary Clinton is the anti-christ, better than Killing Obama, miles better than Okk/Obama Killing Klub and positively saintly compared to I want to fucking kill cooked Hillary Clinton.
 While these groups are small, want to bet that these pages, or other pages just as bad, were quite active when Obama took office and when the 16 campaign started?
 Let’s not start with the number of death threats, Put the White Back in the White House signs, and lynchings via hung effigies. Read more
