Are opposing views welcome on the site?

Of course. While we are a progressive thinking group, we welcome comments from the opposition. There are a few things to keep in mind when commenting on articles to engage in a rational discussion with us.

  1. All comments and contact forms are moderated. Any comment or contact form that does not meet the standards outlined below will be rejected and the author banned from the site.
  2. We will not allow threats of violence because of our views.
  3. All conversations must be based on fact and not on conspiracy theories.
  4. We will not tolerate any form of discriminatory language.
  5. What we demand is a rational discussion without malice or name-calling, threats, or any irrational responses.

It is that simple. Keep it clean, honest, truthful, and respectful and it will all be seen on our pages. Otherwise that that and nothing reaches the light of day.

Roger is a retired Professor of language and literacy. Over the past 15 years since his retirement, Roger has kept busy with reading, writing, and creating landscape photographs. In this time of National crisis, as Fascist ideas and policies are being introduced to the American people and ignored by the Mainstream Press, he decided to stand up and be counted as a Progressive American with some ideas that should be shared with as many people who care to read and/or participate in discusssions of these issues. He doesn't ask anyone to agree with his point of view, but if entering the conversation he demands civility. No conspiracy theories, no wild accusations, no threats, no disrespect will be tolerated. Roger monitors all comments and email communication. That is the only rule for entering the conversation. One may persuade, argue for a different point of view, or toss out something that has not been discussed so long as the tone remains part of a civil discussion. Only then can we find common ground and meaningful democratic change.
