We oppose Trump's Executive Actions targeting Muslims, immigrants and refugees in our communities. We stand with our Muslim community members and we stand with refugees and immigrants in our community. We respect women and we value Black lives. We welcome everyone. There is no place for hate in our businesses, our homes, or in our country.Leftish small businesses are putting up the Hate Posters. Okay, fine. No problem. Humans can avoid shopping there, and natural economics will take its course. Justice works in this realm. Ask Target. And the Fire Department is ALSO putting up the Hate Posters. Not fine. Big problem. When the Spokane Fire Department explicitly takes a partisan political position and explicitly opposes civilization, what should civilized people do? You can't boycott the Fire Department, and you can't legally withhold taxes. = = = = = **Is the Main Street Alliance Sorosian? Yes. The Surdna Foundation supports MSA, and Surdna is associated with Soros. Undoubtedly there are other parallel connections, but one is enough.
Polistra was named after the original townsite of Manhattan (the one in Kansas). When I was growing up in Manhattan, I spent a lot of time exploring by foot, bike, and car. I discovered the ruins of an old mill along Wildcat Creek, and decided (inaccurately) that it was the remains of the original site of Polistra. Accurate or not, I've always liked the name, with its echoes of Poland (an under-appreciated friend of freedom) and stars. ==== The title icon is explained here. ==== Switchover: This 2007 entry marks a sharp change in worldview from neocon to pure populist. ===== The long illustrated story of Polistra's Dream is a time-travel fable, attempting to answer the dangerous revision of New Deal history propagated by Amity Shlaes. The Dream has 8 episodes, linked in a chain from the first. This entry explains the Shlaes connection.
