Alternative Facts And Big Words

Take Me To Post Comment Form


This is an UN-edited version of the letter I submitted published today 1/16/17...

Seems I must have struck a nerve, judging from the 4 or 5 letters questioning my replies to other letters from the likes of Scott McComas and Frank Aquila, culminating today with (Speaking of hot air & politics) Jan 10 by Frank Aquila. http://www.mantecabulletin.com/section/37/article/149121/ I say "culminating" with a grain of salt because these guys never stop searching the web for Right Wing tidbits they can use in their letters. I also have to apologize to one letter writer for using a word like "Culminating" after he complained that I used "big words" and used a dictionary. Unlike Trump who boasts that he has "the most words and the best words" and just yesterday said he is "like, really smart" and "a very stable genius." but I have to rely on a dictionary. (California is not better than ever) Jan 9. http://www.mantecabulletin.com/section/37/article/149106/

In the latest Aquila letter, Aquila claims I hate facts. No, Mr. Aquila, I don't hate facts, I do take issue with your version of facts, that is why I bother to reply to your letters, and since that version follows so closely the "Alternate Facts" that White House Spokeswoman, Kelly Ann Conway bragged about so public-ally, I have to attempt to set the record straight and since you will not respond to comments on the Bulletin Web Site on which most of these letters are published, I have to resort to more letters. I have to assume Aquila will not reply to comments because he simply cannot find things on the Right Wing web sites where he can quickly copy and paste his replies.

Unfortunately "Alternate Facts" come out this WH so fast (An average of 5 per day) and so often, there is hardly time to fact-check them so I can understand why people like Aquila copy and paste them as fast as they can, not bothering to do the research. Fortunately by the time Aquila and others like him have done their copy and paste and submitted their letters, I have done the research to get to the real facts. This seems to strike Right Wing nerves like Aquila's and instead of taking the time to do his own research, he once again scours the Right Wing web sites for even more "Alternate Facts" about the first "Alternate Facts". And so it goes. This latest copy and paste routine from Aquila is a prime example of his Modus Operandi (Sorry there, guy who thinks I use big words, you can ask Aquila what that means, he was once an important Law Enforcement official you know).

I won't bother to go over every word of Aquila's rant, here are just a few, to give you a sort of idea of what I am talking about.

1. Aquila claims five countries have gone into bankruptcy because of National Healthcare and National Education. Of the seven countries I found to be "Near Bankruptcy" Greece was the only one on Aquila's list and that was not due to National Healthcare or National Education but because of the UN-employment situation in that country. Others had various reasons but none of them listed National Education or Healthcare. Wonder if Aquila bothered to check out how Canada is doing with it's Nationalized Healthcare and Education? How about Norway? Score: Facts1: Alternate Facts 0:

2. Aquila claims I don't want a border "Fence". Wrong, there is already a fence. I am against a border WALL, a wall that Trump wants to budget over 19 Billion just for about 300 miles of giant wall as the first installment. Remember that was a wall that Mexico would pay for. Esplain that one Lucy... Now imagine how much help it would be to direct that kind of money to Puerto Rico where almost half of the island is still without electricity and clean water. The greatest Trump FEMA failure in American History.(So Far)... Facts 2: Alternate Facts 0:

3. Aquila asks why I call those who want that giant wall racist, no, I call people racist when they blame and single out Immigrants from Mexico, like McComas has done. I call people racists who call Mexicans "Those people" as VP Pence has done. I call people racists when they refer to black athletes as "sons-of-b*itches" for standing up for "Black lives matter" as Trump has done and what he said just today when he called African countries and Haiti "S*hithole" Countries. Previously he stated Haitian immigrants all have "Aids", adding we will never get rid of African immigrants because once they get a taste of America, they will never go back to their "Huts" , asking why we don't get our immigrants from places like Norway. I assume he means "White" immigrants. Those comments are not only racist, they are blatantly ignorant. How anyone can defend this National Embarrassment is beyond me. Another writer (A day of working for others) Jan 15, asks how a journalist could dare to ask Trump if he was a racist. Apparently the writer doesn't read newspapers or watch the National News, really? You are being serious right now? To answer Aquila's question: What do I call people who want that giant wall, and still believe Mexico and not you the taxpayer will pay for it? Trump supporters naturally. Facts 3: Alternate Facts 0:

4. Aquila claims I support ANTIFA when I simply provided the meaning of ANTIFA. I do not condone violence of any kind not ANTIFA violence with their store-bought black hoodies nor the KKK with their white home-made hoodies. Aquila might agree there are "Good People" in the White Nationalist movement, as Trump has stated but I would beg to differ. Although I know of no ANTIFA members in Manteca, I did witness a KKK member rally with full KKK regalia, on the steps of Manteca City Hall and I have the pictures to prove it. Facts 4: Alternate Facts 0:

5. Aquila trumps (no pun intended) the great tax cut I will receive from the Trump Tax Bill recently passed by Republicans and Republicans only. I just did my taxes for last year and thought I would see how I would fare with the new tax bill rules for next year. Seems I will be saving a whopping $33 but will still have to pay based on my income because of the loss of certain tax deductions removed in this new tax bill. Meanwhile, Trump and his family, who claimed he would actually be "Hurt" by the bill, will be scoring big time. Trump himself, based on the partial leaked tax return, will save something like 19 to 22 Million while his family will save tens of millions more. Multiply that by the thousands of other wealthy families who will score "Bigly". Facts 5: Alternate Facts 0:

I think you get the point.. Aquila ends his rant with a dumb "Three guys go into a bar" parody, only this one is in a hot air balloon, that is supposed to cleverly show the difference between Democrats and Republicans. Only thing is everybody knows "Clever" is not an adjective you would use to describe Aquila and there are a thousand of these spoofs for both parties all over the web where I am sure Aquila used his extensive copy and paste skills to share that one with those of us who apparently have no "Internet Search" experience.

Making negative blanket assessments of entire groups such as Muslims, Mexicans, Transgenders, Homosexuals, Atheists, Climate Change Scientists, Medical Marijuana Users, Women's Rights Activists, Minorities, The Free Press or all members of a political party such as Democrats or Republicans has always been viewed a sign of a silly, uninformed and ...
