A Forum for Vigorous Debate, Cornerstone of Democracy

[For the journal (guidelines, focus, etc.), go to www.theamericandissident.org ]. If you have questions, please contact me at todslone@hotmail.com.
Encouraged censorship and self-censorship seem to have become popular in America today. Those who censor others, not just self, tend to favor the term "moderate," as opposed to "censor" and "moderation" to "censorship." But that doesn't change what they do. They still act as Little Caesars or Big Brother protectors of the thin-skinned. Democracy, however, demands a tough populace, not so easily offended. On this blog, and to buck the trend of censorship, banning, and ostracizing, comments are NEVER "moderated." Rarely (almost NEVER) do the targets of these blog entries respond in an effort to defend themselves with cogent counter-argumentation. This blog is testimony to how little academics, poets, critics, newspaper editors, cartoonists, political hacks, cultural council apparatchiks, librarians et al appreciate VIGOROUS DEBATE, cornerstone of democracy. Clearly, far too many of them could likely prosper just fine in places like communist China and Cuba or Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Russia, not to mention Sweden, England, and Austria.

The Fall of Hillarius, the First ! 
I think she’s a total goddess and I just love her.
—Miley Cyrus aka the Tongue

the lies, the denial, the perjury, the lying about the lies,
the lousy memory, the short-circuiting mind,
the rampant cronyism, the deflecting, the hypocrisy, 
the flip flopping, the ethics vacuum, the quid pro quo,
the Wikileaks bombshells, the Project Veritas revelations, 
the spinning surrogates, the entitlement, the elitism, 
the social engineering, the ultra-efficient smear machine,
the most transparent opacity in history, the epic greed, 
the conflicts of interest, the demonization tactics, 
the ruthful vindictiveness, the fawning Pravda press,
the four FBI investigations, the Homey in the back pocket,
the stronger-together platitude spewing, the reset button,
the safe spaces, the speech codes, and the trigger warnings,
the diversity groupthink exclusion mind-forged manacles,
the White Privilege bullshit, the rejection of All Lives Matter, 
the deafening silence in the face of Black Lives Matter racism, 
the deranged smile and cackle, the mess in the Middle East,
the Goldman Sachs speeches, the BleachBit, 
the town hall questions from Donna Brazil,
the rigged Democrat Party primary, the selling out of Bernie,
the basket of “I’m for her” deplorables, 
the fraudulent foundation, the election tampering,
the Muslim Brotherhood, the Benghazi nightmare,
the $5.4 million “crystal stemware” for the State Department,
the death of Vince Foster, the selling of the Lincoln bedroom,
the vast right-wing-conspiracy left-wing conspiracy theories, 
the defamation of Bubba-accusing women, 
the carbon footprint for thee, but not for my family,
the decades of self-service public service, 
the Istanbul Process and its Resolution 16/18,

the contempt for the Freedom of Information Act,
the revulsion for the Freedom of Information Act,
  the hatred for the Freedom of Information Act, 

and, more than anything else, the thousand-dollar Mao Pantsuits…
