Yesterday I saw this comment, in the comments thread of an Open Salon blog:
"Six years ago, I went for a run in New York City. I’d left my watch and phone at home, so when I saw two NYPD cops on a corner, I stopped and said, 'Excuse me, officers,… Read full post »
That's what some of the signs and banners said as New York cops and their supporters rallied yesterday to protest the coldblooded killings of two officers in Brooklyn. Al Sharpton, the race rabble-rouser who can claim a fair share of the guilt for these crimes, assured us that the family of… Read full post »
"Why do prisoners released from their jail look fat-n-sassy and mention how well they were treated?" -- skypixie0, Open Salon blogger, extolling the virtues of Castro's Cuba, in a blog yesterday.
Hola! My name is Jose. Never mind my last name.
I am here voluntarily, and under no coercion whatso… Read full post »
Today the OS blogger known as skypixie0 posted an article here
"Viva Cuba! Viva Castro!" He/she/it thinks that Cuba is paradise and that the Castro brothers are saints. No kidding. Go look at the post. He indicated that the half-century trade embargo of Cuba by the U.S. was one of the… Read full post »
Long before there was Leonardo DiCaprio, there was a really terrific German movie entitled “Titanic.” I came across it while browsing the Amazon selection of streaming movies, viewable free by members of Amazon Prime. I had never heard of the film, and on close inspection I noticed that i… Read full post »
My dear colleague Koshersalaami, one of the most prolific bloggers on Open Salon, likes to cite certain statistics to back up his oft-expressed claim that systemic racism is at play in the way U.S. police forces treat black crime suspects. The statistics to which he gives particular weight were not u… Read full post »
For those of you who didn't notice, Jonathan the Just posted a new blog today denouncing the bullies on Open Salon. He didn't name any, but you may not be surprised to know that they definitely didn't include Bill Beck, in whose mouth butter would not melt.
In fact, Bill… Read full post »
Yesterday I composed a blog here asserting that Jonathan Wolfman may have written the worst sentence ever published on Open Salon. How was I to know that a day later, older/exasperated would outdo him, not just once, but again and again and again, as FDR would put it?
In another of my… Read full post »
"You may recall back in January I raised just how damned crazy the religious right became when the Rose Bowl Parade had a float sponsored by an LGBT activist group and two lucky guys were married atop the float to an international audience. "
Questions I would ask if I weren't… Read full post »
Oh-oh, yes I'm the great deleter
Pretending that I'm making sense
My intolerance is such I delete too much
Deletion's my sole recompense
Oh-oh, yes I'm the great deleter

Is there any reason why Barack Obama should not resign from the presidency? Yesterday’s devastating midterm elections were a repudiation of his record – primarily Obamacare, perhaps, but also his fumbling failures in foreign policy and his hapless response to the Ebola crisis. The man is… Read full post »
She was born on November 4, 1946, the day before the Republicans won a landslide victory in the midterm elections, taking control of the Senate by winning 12 seats away from the Democrats.
The President at the time, Democrat Harry Truman, was at the nadir of his popularity, with… Read full post »
OS blogger Jonathan Wolfman comments on my posts, in that nasty, intolerant way of his, whenever he chooses. And I let him.
Today I tried to return the favor, with a comment on his new blog post, which discusses slavery and suggests that voter-ID laws are a natural extension of sl… Read full post »
