Questions for our Time
Why don’t all those “peaceful protestors” have to get up every morning and go to work like everybody else?
Why do Republicans NEVER keep their promises once they are elected? (This is a question that needs deeper probing.)
Why are States controlled by Red revolutionaries called “blue,” and calm States called “red”?
Why has not a single bureaucrat suffered loss of income from the Covid crisis they invented, unlike millions of innocent people?
Why is it that we have never had a real African American in high office---one whose people endured slavery and segregation? Obama is the son of an actual African and never experienced anything except the opposite of discrimination. Kamala Harris was an “anchor baby” who got citizenship for her Afro-Caribbean father and high-caste Indian mother. Harris’s father has even bragged that his people were slave owners and not slaves. If she becomes President she will be a return to the tradition of slave-owning families, like U.S. Grant.
Why is Harris not celebrated as the first “Asian American” to get near the White House?
Clergymen used to be the best-educated people in town. Why have they all become pretentious doofuses?
Newspaper reporters used to be tough, skeptical fellows. Why have they all become pretentious doofuses?
College professors used to be given respect and support because they were thought of as judicious pursuers of learning. Why have they all become pretentious doofuses?
Corporation executives used to be admired for their hard-working dedication to productivity and providing jobs. Why have they all become pretentious doofuses?
Generals used to be admired because of their willingness and skill to defend the people against foreign threats. Why have they all become pretentious doofuses?
Why do we allow armies to be commanded by men whose understanding of history would not pass muster in middle school? Why do they all seem better at bureaucratic ass-kissing and backstabbing than at soldiering?

Dr. Wilson or Dr. Peters, have either one of you read the sept 2020 issue of Chronicles Magazine which writes about pilgrim/puritan voyage to America?

Yes, and I took Dr. Gottfried to task for this glorification of Yankeedom. I pointed out that it contradicts truthful references to Virginia in other articles in the same issue.

Thank you Dr. Wilson.

Dr. Gottfried should know the tradition which is glorified gave us P.T. Barnum, Henry Ward Beecher, Julia Ward Howe, John Brown, Mitt Romney, Hillary Clinton and George Bush.
