My family on Christmas, 2021












December 24, 2021

Today, I received a letter that began: "Dear fellow patriot,"

It was from Dr. Ben Carson, who apparently now heads the American Cornerstone Institute.

In this five page letter, he pleads with me to join him in fighting "...the radical Leftists in the media, in Big Tech, in political office..."

So much of this letter is what we expect from the Republicans: Lies, projection, and yet more lies. Also there's a lot of vaguely patriotic language.

For instance: ...Recognize that our Constitution, our freedoms, and way of life are under attack from the political ruling class who treat "we, the people" with contempt, as inferior, like prisoners of their all-consuming obsession to destroy this country.

There is a postage paid envelope included. So, of course, I must make use of it.

My question to all of you is: How should I respond? Either with a polite refutation of their lies, or with some angry prose about don't you ever contact me again, you filthy bastards! Or like that.

This is too good to pass up!

***Winners and Runners-Up Thread for the December Photo Contest: Autumn***

This contest was really fun to watch! For a while, there was at least one instance of two photos being tied, but that resolved! Spectacular work from these finalists. Even I had trouble choosing, but along with so many of you voters, I did finally decide.

So, without further ado, here are the top three photos:

First Place: Harvest time by urbanhermit


Second Place:
Nature's Palette also by urbanhermit


Third Place:
Looking through the colors....by Heartstrings


Thanks to all the entrants and all the members who voted!
