Re: “Pin and Bear It

Agree with Bruce's column, but one part rubbed me the wrong way.

"....try to print the truth from our perspective."

Here is my problem with this. The TRUTH does not have a perspective. The TRUTH is the TRUTH. How we have gotten to some of these problems is people want to see the TRUTH from their perspective, through their lens, through their filter. The problem is that it is not the TRUTH anymore then.

The TRUTH is something that should slap you upside your head sometimes and then you need to adjust before it slaps you upside your head again.

I think that the Flyer and other media outlets do a better job of putting a spotlight on the TRUTH, but please...pretty please, with sugar on top....don't think you need to have a perspective on the TRUTH, just show it as it all its glory and ugliness.

The Ice House name is already in use in the area - so have fun with all the confusion and possible lawsuits.

Re: “Cohen Introduces Amendment to Scrap Electoral College

California has 13,773,549 voters so far deciding 55 electors. That is 1 elector per 250,428 voters.

Tennessee had 2,457.017 voters for 11 electors. That is 1 elector per 225,002 voters.

Wyoming had 258,788 voters for 3 electors. That is 1 elector per 86,263 voters.

So it takes almost 3 voters in Tennessee to equal 1 voter in Wyoming based on impact from Electoral College.

Why should people in Wyoming have 3 times the voting strength as people in Tennessee?

Re: “Dems on the Rebound

One issue items may be a good path for the Dems to get moving again. The Occupy movement failed because it was all over the place on what it wanted. I attended a Rally for Education event and I heard so many side bar issues that it just muddied what was the core issue and how to achieve it.

Gandhi focused strictly on the Salt Tax to get people to rally around him and put him a position to finally break British Rule. Make one issue central that can rally those around you.

The Gun Violence issue may work. The $15 minimum wage issue may work. Dems need to pick the one that can rally the most people around them and push and push it hard.
