Silence at critiques is technical
It is a terrible thing to be full of words, and unable to speak. If the spam filter glitch which has rendered me unable to post remarks to comments made to my stories, or to reply in PMs is not worked out soon, I will be forced to stop writing on NP altogether. I notified the Tech people over a week ago, that my front page stories were piling up in excess of 10 x the number actually written, and that I feared this would mark me as spam. Nothing has changed. It is not right to be within a public citizen journal venue, with a sock in my mouth, having to read comments, but unable to respond in kind, whether via the news post or PM. My hard work would appear to be turning to ashes. Why cannot a technical glitz be addressed in good faith?
To albertacowpoke: I was always against those who derided Bush: Those on the left who were disrespectful. That was a circus, and those who cannot remain reasonable and polite in the face of an Obama administration are equally bad, not worse. I do not believe it is too early to say Wilson's comments were a help to Obama : they clearly came when he needed them most: the case was stated for him. I believe healthcare reform will pass in some form, and that in itself will be an historic step forward. I think the times are the vindication of Barack Obama: truth is transitory and fleeting: Obama would indeed have been a "lie" in the '80s or '90s. He is not so now. History itself will speak for him. As a philosopher, I tend to see overarching patterns as transcending the empirical ones. The writings of Howe and Strauss - so astute that a decade ago they refuted Fukuyama in a manner unprecedented, and made the case for a coming socialism (which they themselves dreaded and feared) in 1996, when no such indicators as we have now were pointing the way - have said that things indeed will be in the saddle, and ride America. The lack of a detailed plan is apparent, merely: Obama knows, he comprehends, the gravity of what he is doing, and how it will close the door on the hopeful '90s forever. This will make him hated beyond words. . . . Hope that helped. smk
