Our Constitution: Its Origins & What Followed

God might appear in INCD5 since Rep Spartz (R), after 2 terms, has called it quits. She beat 13 others (12 tried to out-right wing each other) in the 2020 primary. Micah Beckwith, one of those 12, will begin a series of talks about The Constitution. Beckwith tells ppl to “stay away 1/8

from higher education and [its] secular progressive bias” & claims training/ed’n on constitutional law from “Hillsdale College as well as a plethora of private studies and research.” God, per… Continue

Sen Mike Braun (R-IN) has incited CRT & should keep his mouth shut about Lincoln

Today’s email from Sen Mike Braun (R-IN) is puke-worthy. After all, last year Braun smirked in an interview & sd States should be allowed to ban interracial marriage. In Loving v Virginia, 388 U.S. 1, SCOTUS held such statutes unconstitutional. Today Braun reflected on: 1/6

“Abraham Lincoln’s birthday” & “what leadership means to me.” He notes Lincoln “spent most of his boyhood in Indiana” & trailblazed a “path to promise for ... every boy and girl who dreams of something… Continue

Paul Ogden should be careful about where he leaves his flip phone

My good friend Paul Ogden left his flip phone out & used it to post a reply, under Paul’s name, to my blog about “RINOs.” I’ll address the 6 sentences the miscreant wrote. First: gun free zones won’t work because criminals won’t leave their guns “at home.” “Home” is the problem. 1/5

Since mid-1990s, NRA $$$ & members of Congress have blocked CDC sponsorship of peer reviewed studies of guns as a health risk & whether guns work in preventing crime. Gun free zones worked in…

The real "RINOs" are those on the far right who have hijacked the formerly progressive GOP

Each “RINO” (“Republican in Name Only”) should be ashamed. From its 1854 founding as the party opposed to slavery, through legislative enactments for an income tax “proportionate to ( ) ability to pay,” Rep Morrill (R-VT), to fighting for clean air & water (1890s to 1970s)... 1/6

through protecting a woman’s right to choose, the GOP was not “a” but the progressive party. In 1964, cynics covetous of power realized the GOP could poach Electors’ votes from Dems’ “Solid South” by an… Continue

If we want to reduce violent crime, we have to reduce numbers of guns.

Friends say: avoid “national” issues as I run for City-County Council in the May primary. Their concerns are legit. I’m conversant on fiscal issues, such as TIFS (I’m against them) and money to pro sports (love sports, but hate subsidies to billionaires). I can’t avoid some issues. 1/5

Want to reduce deaths from guns? Reduce the guns in our city. Lauren Boebert, idiot member of Congress (R-Col) sd we have 4% of the World’s population &“only” 46% of the World’s guns. If we bury the…

I'm running for City-County Council to fight bigotry & ignorance

UniGov joined the government of Indianapolis w/the governments of most of the rest of Marion County in 1970. The idea was to coherently plan development, foster systems of transportation & services that best meet people’s needs, all in a peaceful environment. We’ve come up short. 1/6

This iteration of the GOP has trained its base to salivate & growl “Socialism!” selectively. Party donors make merry w/TIF funds. Bus lines are placed to serve developers’ needs. Crime rates rise… Continue
