tolerance, integrity, and us

tolerance, integrity, and us -   
Editor's note: This Shark believes that our new A.G. should approach the Elder Cleansing cases precipitated by the Probate Court of Cook County with vigor!  There is no paucity of witnesses who would volunteer testimony against these probate criminals.  Lucius Verenus, Schoolmaster, ProbateSharks.com
America may have problems and may have its share of hypocrites and miscreants, but, indeed it is a melting pot stuffed with some of the most wonderful people any one can imagine.   It is amazing that in a small arena such as the US so many fantastic people can be found.   All of us do stupid things and most of us do them when it is most inconvenient and embarrassing.  

However - the exceptions prove the rule.    I can see no redeeming virtues in the public officials who are corrupt and prey in concert with real criminals on the elderly and the disabled.   Nor can I see anything good in the public officials who use their public offices to 'cover up' the terrible conduct of the miscreant criminals above.

I wish that we could lump all the bad people into the persona of one individual and we could all hate him/her.   Unfortunately, no one individual qualifies for such hatred.   Yes, there are a few people I would like to nominate for the role of universal bad guy, but, it is intellectually dishonest to label any single individual as totally evil and beyond any type of redemption.   This Pollyanna view is taxed when I think of the Guardian ad Litem who orchestrated the quest for gold in the mouth of Alice Gore or the public officials who have gone to the mat to protect her and make certain that she could continue her infamy on other disabled elders.   

a public office is a public trust - this includes minor offices such as Guardian ad Litem, *******Mr. Cannon - real clear politics is not "real clear" when it is polluted by the parochial quest for riches that has turned the overbroad guardianship scandal into a WAR ON THE ELDERLY AND DISABLED for profit.    The victim elderly and their families receive zero tolerance and compassion from the public officials who are engaged in either elder cleansing or covering up the scandal.   I call your attention to the Probate Sharks, MaryGSykes, NASGA, AAAPG blogs and the four Government Accounting Offices reports to Congress!     I call your attention to our call for an HONEST INVESTIGATION!   The Establishment raised a hue and cry against the HONEST INVESTIGATION but none against the Elder Cleansing.

Carl Cannon's Morning Note

Pardon Rosie; Constitutional Questions; Bad Science; Restoring Tolerance

By Carl M. Cannon on Nov 28, 2016 08:46 am
Good morning. It's Monday, November 28, 2016. I hope you all had a good Thanksgiving weekend. Now it's back to politics. Today is the birthday of the man who gave the most inspiring political speech of the 2010 election cycle. The pride of New Jersey's Lawrence High School and the College of William and Mary wasn't even a candidate for elective office, yet he spoke for millions of Americans who would like more maturity from their politicians (and cable commentators) that they typically get.
All Jon Stewart did was call for a little civility and common sense in our political discourse. But he did so in a simple, yet brilliant, way. The lessons he tried to impart are even more relevant now than they were six years ago, as I'll explain further in a moment.
First, I'd point you to our front page, which aggregates columns and stories spanning the political spectrum. We also offer a nice complement of original material from our own reporters and contributors this morning, including the following:
* * *
Pardon Rosie O'Donnell! In a column, I offer the president-elect some advice about burying the hatchet and providing second chances.
A Poor Guide for Trump's High Court Choices. Peter Berkowitz weighs in on the views of a purported nonpartisan legal scholar.
JASTA Misses the True State Sponsor of Terrorism. In RealClearDefense, Peter Huessy considers reasons to amend or repeal the law that eliminated sovereign immunity to lawsuits by American citizens.
An Outsider's Peek Inside the Pentagon War Machine. RCD editor David Craig reviews Rosa Brooks' "How Everything Became War and the Military Became Everything."
The Worst Websites for Science in 2016. Ross Pomeroy compiled this list.
* * *
Jonathan Stuart Leibowitz entered the world on this day in 1962. No word on whether he cracked up New York delivery room nurses and doctors with spoofs of the news, but by January 1999, when he replaced Craig Kilborn as host of "The Daily Show," he was going by Jon Stewart.
That program helped launch the comedy-laced careers of Steve Carell and Stephen Colbert, and has won multiple Emmy Awards, but Stewart turned his gift for satire into something, well, more serious. In 2004, he and his staff released a best-selling mock-history textbook titled "America (The Book): A Citizen's Guide to Democracy Inaction."
In 2010, in a "restore sanity" rally on the National Mall, Stewart ended the zany entertainment with a serious and surprisingly eloquent call for both tolerance and unity.
"Look on the screen ... [which was showing traffic merging into the Holland Tunnel]. This is who we are," he said.
"These cars -- that's a schoolteacher who probably thinks his taxes are too high. He's going to work," Stewart added. "There's another car -- a woman with two small kids who can't really think about anything else right now. The lady's in the NRA and she loves Oprah. There's another car -- an investment banker, gay, also likes Oprah. Another car's a Latino carpenter. Another car -- a fundamentalist vacuum salesman. Atheist obstetrician. Mormon Jay-Z fan. But this is us.
"Every one of the cars that you see is filled with individuals of strong belief and principles they hold dear -- often principles and beliefs in direct opposition to their fellow travelers. And yet these millions of cars must somehow find a way to squeeze one by one into a mile-long 30-foot-wide tunnel carved underneath a mighty river. ... And they do it. Concession by concession. You go. Then I'll go. You go. Then I'll go. You go, then I'll go.
"Oh, my God -- is that an NRA sticker on your car? Is that an Obama sticker on your car? Well, that's OK -- you go and then I'll go."
Words to live by.
