Meeks Update

In our previous Sunday posting about the Chicago Reader article about reverend Meeks, we realize a number of our more "sensitive" readers are going to take offense at what we posted.

Already, some have pointed out that numerous ministers from other faiths make a living off of contributions from their congregations. Point granted. But the other ministers aren't out there building a political machine based on lies, innuendo, and threats to run against established positions. And other ministers aren't being profiled in the Reader, enabling us to put forth our opinion on a published work.

The reader known as "coldtype" has attempted to take us to task for even having an opinion, implying we "say so much yet know so little" without even pointing out what we know so little about - a typical ploy of those who believe the great unwashed masses ought to listen to their betters and not worry about how things are being run. As we stated elsewhere, every fact in our opinion piece is from the Reader. Any beef should be taken up with them.

This was an opinion piece. We have opinions. Most of our readers have opinions, too, some of them very strong ones. Those opinions that can be articulated in a civil manner are invited to post here. Anyone else who has an opinion is welcome to start their own site and publish to their heart's content. It's still a free market place.

No SCC I haven't "taken you to task" at all on the subject of Meeks because it's not worth my time and effort to risk the TLCR on a subject that frankly doesn't interest me in light of far greater concerns.

If, however, you pine for examples of my taking you to task I'd advise you to re-read my past comments on TWSNBN and the grave threat posed to this republic by the Imbecile-In-Chief.

Stay safe.

Lefty got another nom de plum? How interesting! So far we have:

Malcolm the Tenth's Little Brother
Man Behind the Curtain
and more than likely Shady O'Grady.

Lefty, take your Che' Guevara T-Shirt wearing ass to the door and don't let it hit you on the way out!

"say so much yet know so little"

I have issues with that comment. We as officers who work in the streets, go to court and witness first hand the ineptness of the court system, and observe politics in action know alot more about the big picture of what is going on in the city then the citizens who are spoon fed their information by the media.

So that's how your world turns is it WestCide? Any deviation from orthodoxy and conventional wisdom just has to come from one source, not several? Whatever floats your boat.

Stay asleep.

Orthodoxy and conventional wisdom have proved themselves time and time again! You've been outed before and will be continually outed by those that see through your vellum thin world of misinformation and borderline personality disorder.

Get some help for your own sake. I know you may care deeply about your Utopian ideals, but in all honesty, the world doesn't really give a rats ass how you feel.

Unless of course someone can make a dollar or two off of it.

Can I put your face on a few T-Shirts like Che'? I bet I might even be able to buy a cup of coffe with the money I'd make!

TO 1/29 @0750 HRS. Have you been drug tested? Keep this shit in perspective. Meeks is a slick, rank capitalist, pretty common in this country. If he should be charged with treason, then Dick Cheney, another slick rank capitalist who has used his influence to make a ton of money and have a lot of good young Americans die for his greed, should be taken out to the Rose Garden and hung. His idiot boss should be put in retard school.

Sorry about the delayed response WestCide.

I realize that introspection is a great deal for me to ask of you but try to remember where conventional wisdom and orthodoxy have gotten us so far. For example, according to "conventional wisdom" Iraq possessed WMD and Saddam had ties to Al Qaeda, which was later revealed to be a cynical fraud utilized to stampede a frightened American public into support for an imperial war of aggression planned long before 9/11. The results speak for themselves.

Asking you to think independently for the first time in your life is admittedly unfair WestCide but these are dangerous times and require difficult choices. For you that roughly translates into opening your eyes, pulling your hands from your ears, and getting off your knees.

Speaking truth to power is the duty of every citizen WistCide. If you don't know what that means, or worse, have never heard the term then you have a great deal to learn.

Peel yourself from the herd. Stand up.

And which of our anti-Bush, left-leaning jagoffs in Washington are "doing the right thing" in regard to these dangerous times? Goof.

None of them, slave. In fact, "left-leaning" and "Washington" is an oxymoron, moron. That's my point.

The only "point" you have is at the top of your head, you commie.

Lenin referred to American liberals as "useful idiots"

Nothing has changed.
