News Tips and General Comments Page

Ever want to share a link or a news tip, provide an update on an ongoing story, or just make a suggestion, but don't feel like sending an email and don't want to add an unrelated comment to a recent post? Put it here. Over the past few months, I have received a number of good comments – often in the form of updates from supporters for a third party or independent candidate for office – which have, however, been more or less unrelated to the content of the post they were attached to. I thought it would make more sense to provide a single page for the collection and dissemination of such information, rather than have it dispersed throughout unrelated posts. So, welcome to Poli-Tea's news tip and general comment page. The comments feed from this post is featured in the sidebar. The first few words of the most recent comments will appear as linked headlines in the corresponding widget (just under Plato's Cave), along with a date stamp and your handle. Start things off if you're so inclined. And, in future, click the most recent headline to jump to the comment form.

The media again fails to do their research and facts. This is the biggest battle Independents and third parties face. They are not taken serious at the early stages. This is a comment I wanted to post on this blog. But for some reason, I am in the timeout chair. Anywaone want to take a whack at it or improve it and post it. I would appreciate it.


Here is another example of someone failing to do their research. How easily one discounts the effect of having 94 percent independents in the state of Arkansas because they buy off on the two party system and it’s stranglehold. This general election will have four different candidates. In addition to the Democrat and Republican, it will have a Green Party member and Trevor Drown the independent. Recent events in the country have shown that people are disgusted with the two party system and are looking for answers. A no nonsense leader like Drown, who is also a combat vet of Afghanistan and a “common man” can appeal to a wide spectrum of the populace. Your failure to even recognize what is going on Arkansas is either based on lack or research, a closed mind or you think us dumb Arkies don’t know what is going on. I suggest you keep an closer eye on this change in the political landscape and increase the credibility of your analysis.

Smijer on Distributism:

"Am I wrong in being unable to suppress my enthusiasm for the largely European Catholic supported alternative economic theory of distributism? I believe I’ve linked the Front Porch Republic – the American outlet for this point of view – more than once before… but go read this, and tell me where it is wrong."

C. Montgomery Burns wins NYC Mayoral write-in vote.

Via CNN: "Charles Montgomery Burns, better known as Mr. Burns in the hit animated TV series "The Simpsons", got the most votes of any write-in candidate during last month's mayoral election in New York City. According to records released by the New York City Board of Elections, the cartoon billionaire received 27 write-in votes out of the 299 that were cast.

Burns wasn't the only fictional character to get votes in the race. Mad Magazine icon Alfred E. Newman, Fantastic Four arch-villain Victor Von Doom, Mickey Mouse, and Sleeping Beauty also received write-in votes."
