Prices us quite a lot of coin

Reside by the Web, die by the Web. Companies and establishments appear to be forcing us to conduct our day by day transactions over the Web. Some retail shops are claiming that the U.S. Division of the Treasury will not be manufacturing sufficient cash to facilitate using money, thereby forcing prospects to make use of their bank cards, which depend on the Web to finish and file the financial transactions. In fact, when the Web goes down, most retailers scramble to take money and checks as a result of they have no idea when the Web will come again on.

However what if the Web did not come again on for a protracted, very long time? Would there be sufficient cash for retailers to make change? Even essentially the most optimistic Henny Penny is aware of that our on-line world might fall and turn out to be monopolized by the Russians, or a man-made intelligence, or a gaggle of company buyers. Use of the Web might turn out to be very costly and unique.

However what can we do? We’re on the mercy of clerical xenobots that stare into the Eye of Sauron (video display screen) all day, every single day, and have misplaced their minds to the one-eyed monster. They can not perceive why everybody else will not be dependent upon the Web, too. No marvel these poor creatures pay hundreds of thousands in cyber ransom time and again. They can not deal with actuality, and should dwell in digital actuality. This prices everybody else quite a lot of coin.

Conservative views

To Bruce Plantz of Little Rock: I, too, am undecided why he reads Mike Masterson’s columns as Bruce appears to have an issue with conservative viewpoints. Bruce said in disagreeing with Mike that the 12 months 2021 was not so unhealthy and the bulk that elected a brand new president had been respiratory simpler. That very same majority and lots of others are actually choking whereas inflation soars; we’ve got the worst border disaster ever; China, Russia and North Korea all rattling their sabers; plus the Afghan catastrophe whereas the president fiddles. By the best way, we met China coming in as we had been leaving Afghanistan, presumably abandoning one of many world’s largest lithium reserves. Assume automotive batteries. As for President Biden talking a coherent sentence, it appears he has issue even studying his ready script, and when he tries to ad-lib it will get worse. It’s tragic that he’s getting used and manipulated the best way he’s.

As for Mike Masterson, it’s enlightening to learn his well-informed and various columns, to not point out his many previous human-interest tales just like the Janie Ward thriller and the aged blind woman just lately launched from incarceration. These tales had been attention-grabbing and informative and weren’t detailed to Mike’s extent wherever else that I noticed. I counsel that Bruce maintain studying or simply go forward and watch CNN and MSNBC for his enlightenment.

To Sandy Wylie of Bella Vista, who lambasted the award-winning ADG as a result of it additionally gives a couple of conservative opinions: Final I checked, and I learn all of them, there are many liberal views supplied like Brummett, Krugman and others, to call a couple of. Assaults on Democrats? Hogwash. There are a lot of items within the ADG that by Sandy’s standards can be thought of assaults on conservatives. I counsel that perhaps Sandy ought to confine his studying to The New York Instances so he can management his blood stress just a little higher.

As for me, I’ll maintain studying the ADG from cowl to cowl, together with Voices. One different factor, when did one editor’s opinion turn out to be the official opinion of the ADG? Simply questioning. Deus existo nobis!

Symphony constructing

I heard just a little on the information about getting cash up for a brand new symphony constructing. I hope we construct one. Nonetheless, I feel a drive for all Arkansans to donate no matter they will must be made.

I additionally hope it is constructed simply outdoors of Little Rock however close to it due to all of the shootings and different evil finished within the metropolis every single day. I’d love to listen to symphony music.

Shame to his legacy

The Martin Luther King Jr. Fee was tone-deaf to true civil rights heroes like MLK Jr. when it invited a person to be its prayer breakfast’s keynote speaker who as soon as cynically questioned Barack Obama’s Christianity, who’s on the improper aspect of voting rights points, and who besmirched Black Lives Matter efforts (even drawing the ire of MLK III). Moreover, this man’s daughter is the doubtless Republican candidate for governor. Will she be there campaigning?

That our 4 congressmen, who just lately voted in opposition to strengthening voting rights so essential to Reverend King, are apparently invited to the extremely restricted occasion can also be troubling. These Republicans’ one hundred pc obstruction of the federal voting rights payments (payments extra mandatory than ever as a result of politicians in states like ours are passing legal guidelines not solely to suppress votes however to subvert any unwelcome election outcomes) is stunningly unhappy to anybody who cherishes this democratic republic in 2022.

Republican influencers have created these egregious legal guidelines right here and in different states to battle in opposition to their very own claims of voter fraud, claims which were broadly debunked. There was no stolen election in 2020.

Sadly, in the event that they succeed, there will probably be stolen elections in 2022 and 2024 with few, if any, attainable authorized treatments. America will lose our world standing as a rustic whose governmental type has been deemed exemplary to so many around the globe. And as ever extra residents fall prey to the lies spun by politicians and pundits, we’ll tumble ever nearer into autocracy and dictatorship.

Would MLK Jr. approve? I doubt it! Would he approve of those that are nonetheless preventing in opposition to his desires of fairness and equality in elections? That, too, is extremely uncertain.
