The White Paladin Opines
about pretty much anything that is on my mind or that I find interesting. I'm a teacher, writer, bookseller, fan of crime fiction, film noir, Texas Tech athletics, history and economics and have very strong opinions on politics.

On these subjects and more - opinion pieces, links to articles, pictures, or videos.

Hope you enjoy.

Political Affiliation and TV Preferences

Political Affiliation and TV Preferences

It's interesting to sometimes seriously consider those views opposed to your own and attempt to understand the thinking of those who hold those views. My first reaction to this article was that "of course those people sitting home watching Jerry Springer and similar shows, drawing unemployment, slurping cokes and stuffing their mouths with chips bought with food stamps...of course they're democrats." And when reading the comments section, I noted a response from someone that said that of course Republicans like sports, because sports is a meritocracy... My mental response to this was, 'of course, but that's too obvious to even merit a comment." What kind of mind would reply to that comment with derision, as one poster did?
