Humor: Irish confessional🙏

[Thanks, Jones.]

Irish Confession…

I went into the confessional box after many years of being away from the Catholic Church.

Inside I found a fully equipped bar with Guinness on tap. On one wall, there was a row of decanters with fine Irish whiskey and Waterford crystal glasses. On the other wall was a dazzling array of the finest cigars and chocolates.

When the priest came in, I said to him, “Father, forgive me, for it’s been a very long time since I’ve been to confession, but I must first admit that the confessional box is much more inviting than it used to be.”

He replied, “You moron, you’re on my side.”

Politics: Charlottesville—I Don’t Get It

I was dumbfounded when I discovered what the ruckus was all about: A statue of Robert E. Lee, on a horse.

Say what?

Now, I am no Civil War buff, and I haven’t researched this subject at all. But I have certain attitudes, as most of us do. And this is how I see it.

Around the time when the Commonwealth of Virginia voted to secede from the union, Mr. Lee was offered a commission to lead Union forces but instead he chose to side with his state. As far as I know, he seems to have been one of the finest men to ever serve this country – or to have served the short-lived Confederacy. I think he is an incredibly dramatic lesson to us all about choices that we make in life; what those choices might actually be about, and what those choices might actually lead to. Lee is not a figure to be viewed in terms of black-and-white. I think he represents a real, genuine, conflicted, honorable man who served his country well.

So what’s the ruckus? That he owned slaves? So did Jefferson, etc. That he led a losing cause? That he tried to help his state form a new nation? In my opinion, nothing dishonorable in that. That’s how the United States was formed, after all. Patriots and Tories, guns on both sides.

Of all the symbols to be argued over today, after more than a century and a half, that one of those symbols should be Robert E. Lee, I find is a tragic waste of an educational opportunity.

Those protesting the statue are on the same playing field as Holocaust-deniers. Given a choice to learn from history, they would rather shove history down the Memory Hole. Shame on them all.

P.S., I have been to Charlottesville. Twice. Seemed like a nice town.

UPDATE:  this morning I saw some Berkeley college professor on TV who suggested that maybe instead of removing  existing statues, what we should do is add more statues of people representing opposing ideologies. Harriet Tubman, that kind of thing.

That’s creative thinking.

Politics: “Are These Accurate?” Part 2

In response to an August 9 email touting 45’s positive achievements, I noted (to someone) that Trump’s lies and hypocrisy worry me as much as anything else about him. I didn’t think I needed to support my opinion, but it’s so easy to do that I feel obliged to give it equal time. Even judged by the low bar of leaders and politicians, The Donald is a world-class prevaricator.

William Safire, at one time Nixon’s speechwriter, once famously called Hillary Clinton a “pathological liar”—and trotted out evidence to back up his claim. Imagine if he had lived long enough to witness President Trump.

P.S., I’m forwarding this before reading it myself. I think I know what I will read in “the failing New York Times.” (Times revenues last quarter were up, BTW.)
