people you never talk with.

I’m not about to engage in a personal attack on Steve King, either, although it wouldn’t be hard to do so.
While King is not by any means the only offender mentioned in the article, he and others here violate two of the guidelines of Free Speech Handbook, and so engage in conduct that I will discourage on The William Tell Show:
1. Judge the thought, not the thinker.
7. Don’t change the subject.
The issue here is gun control, specifically I would say the prospect of banning AR-15s and any other “assault rifle.” Gonzales herself is not the issue. Cuba is not the issue.
Alternative Fact of the Week: Chicago as gun grabber paradise
The William Tell Show faces an uphill battle.
In any marketplace, one can only buy what’s made available for sale. Someone makes decisions about what’s made available for sale. In the marketplace of ideas, if the decision-maker is lacking in wisdom, emotional maturity, or emotional intelligence, then ALL that’s made available for sale is likely to reflect those same deficiencies. And such is the situation in the media today: Americans have few good role models for responsible, adult free speech.
Phrases like “mindless regurgitation” have no place in a serious piece that desires to be taken seriously.

David Farenthold, “Austerity is a hard nut to crack”
George F. Will, “2013’s lesson for conservatives”
Farenthold asks what’s best for the country. Will asks what’s best for conservatives. That difference illustrates what Trojan Horse Productions and The William Tell Show are all about.

In “recycling” these old posts, my practice has normally been to reproduce the whole post. In this instance, I’ll merely link to it:
What got me at this writing was this passage, which strikes me as awfully current:
“Josh Barro is one of those who just didn’t get it. To me, the whole row has been about free speech. It is unacceptable in this country that mere shifts of the zeitgeist should force an individual’s conscience; that we should become a thought-police state.”
That was dated 01/11/14. I’m struck that we may now be at greater risk than ever, of becoming a thought-police state.
Joel Osteen caught some bad press behind Hurricane Harvey. These pieces continue the pattern I’ve seen over the years, that no one reports anything he’s actually said.

A new page has appeared at The Homeless Blogger.
“Free Speech Handbook” gives a lot of information about exactly what I hope to accomplish in the world of radio.
This development is a big step forward in my job search.
Check it out!

11/13/13 I googled “Ted Williams the homeless blogger” to see if “First of all …” would appear. I didn’t find it, but I did find “Ted Williams: Criminal / Liberal Homeless Sensation!,” Michele Bachmann’s mean-spirited(*) post on the same subject.
She has a puzzling blog.
If you click on the “POPULAR POSTS” tab, there is a very extensive post about Stacy Keibler, copying the whole Wikipedia article about her and full of racy photos and videos.
There are similar voyeuristic posts about Gisele Bundchen, Jenny McCarthy, Zoe Saldana, Eva Mendes and others.
The Tea Party agenda appears to be broader than I’d supposed.

(*)“Mean-spirited” is a characterization, and a term I will not normally allow myself to use on The William Tell Show. I have just now broken my own rules by using it here. The policy and reasons for it will become clearer once I post Free Speech Handbook on this site. For the moment, one may consult my resume.
