Dear Jasper John
If you quote FOX and disbelieve Media Matters you are in big trouble!!
If you send out material without checking its validity you have bigger trouble.
If you think Ebenezer Scrooge is a hero you have even more trouble/
I would suggest that you face reality.
And start listening to Pope Francis

Stebbins, Donald M. (MC1961)
I don't believe ANY media, politician, and bureaucrats. I collect for the consideration of others. I do very little ORIGINAL reporting.
This is a near zero cost effort; hence "validity checking" ain't going to happen.
And, I don't think Ebenzer is a "hero". I don't have "heroes". I do think he's misunderstood, unfairly criticized, and use a foil for the Gooferment Welfare advocates. I'm not going to go into depth on it other than to say: the Gooferment takes from the makers and "gives" it to the takers. That's theft. Ebenezer was making his contribution to society, producing, and employing. He should be free to "enjoy" the fruits of his labor as he sees fit. If we can tell him what he "must" do, then any one can tell you and I what we "must" do.
I'm very much a realist and a pragmatist imho.
As far as Pope Francis, jury's still out. I like what I see initially, but one robin doesn't make a Spring. And, he is part of "the Establishment Church". We'll just have to see what results.
But as always, thanks for your participation. I've been told some of our fellow Alums that they enjoy our "tifts".
Shall we discuss Gooferment Skrules, aka Government Reeducation Camps aka the new churches of State Worship, Atheism, Earth worship, and Socialistic indoctrination?
